If you're stuck in a workout rut or looking for a motivating fitness routine, you might consider adding a high-energy kickboxing workout to your schedule. Kickboxing workouts combine martial arts techniques with heart-pumping cardio, which means you can get a total-body workout and whip yourself into shape in no time.
Whether you're a fitness newbie or a long-time gym aficionado, undertaking a kickboxing workout at least once per week can help you feel re-energized and out of a rut. Here are seven more benefits of kickboxing workouts:
1. Reduce Stress
You can kick and punch your way to a stress-free zone within minutes of your high-energy kickboxing routine. The movements in kickboxing challenge several core muscle groups and will give you a total body workout fast.
2. Boost Confidence Levels
According to Dr. Rose Windale of Healthzine.org, kickboxing helps you release endorphins, which will give your mood a boost and help you feel more confident. Endorphins will also make you feel happier and more positive for several hours after the workout.
3. Improved Coordination
If you're suffering from posture problems and have poor coordination, you can strengthen your 'core' and improve your reflexes and coordination skills. The speedy punches and kicks in the kickboxing routine will give you a chance to focus your energy to execute each movement successfully.
4. Burn Mega Calories
Muscle and Fitness Magazine reports that fitness kickboxing can burn over 800 calories per hour, and you'll be toning up your entire body as you rev up your metabolism. It's a high-power cardio routine that's great for weight loss and getting you in shape fast.
5. Ideal Cross-Training Workout
If you've been pounding on the treadmill for several weeks and need a break from your usual cardio routine, kickboxing is the perfect cross-training workout. You can add some weight by wearing wrist or ankle weights or just putting on a pair of lightweight boxing gloves for extra resistance. Just one or two routines a week can help you break out of a fitness rut quickly.
6. Energy Boost
Kickboxing is a high-energy cardio routine that will give your body and mind a boost and increase your energy levels. You'll be breathing hard and sweating out toxins; this process will give your energy levels a much-needed boost.
