KIMT NEWS 3 - Ever have one of those stressful days where you just want to punch something? We all have those moments in one way or another, but you can actually turn some of those pent-up frustrations into a workout.
Cardio kickboxing is loosely based off tae bo, it combines cardio and strength. The longest break you'll take is about 30 seconds.
We start by getting that heart rate up and getting all our muscles nice and loose. That's super important because they'll be taking a beating.
Owner of Kick U.S.A. Karate, Randy Millham is a level 5 black belt in karate and has been teaching this style of kickboxing for several years. He's our drill sergeant for the evening.
He said, "You're going to be doing a lot of target shots against the bag which acts as resistance, but it helps with your cardiovascular, it does raise the heart rate up a little bit more and then we bring it back down again."
This type of workout is a lot different from running on a treadmill and lifting weights - it works all parts of your body in some sneaky ways.
Millham said "You're working the neck, the shoulders,parts of the back. A lot of people don't realize when you're doing a simple punch or kick, you're working the core with the abdominal and hips areas."
Aside from just going to town on a punching bag and getting out some aggression, there are skills involved that take some time to master.
Millham said, "Proper technique also helps you in proper body shaping as well. You don't just go into a gym and have proper lifting technique and you could hurt yourself and you won't to get the results you need."
