Cardio Kickboxing is
a very complete aerobic kickboxing program. Mr. Thiboutot's program is broken down
into 3 main sections:
2. Workout w/o Equipment
Each of these has some interesting sub-components. Here's an
overview of what you get in each of these three sections:
- Mr. Thiboutot goes through the following: wrapping of the hands, gloves, stances
and moving, bobbing and weaving, 4 main punches, spinning backfist, 3 commonly used
kicks, and skipping rope.
After this he gets one ready to begin the main program
by first taking them through a warm-up routine that consists of: neck, triceps, trunk,
hips, squats, and double shoulder width stretches.
The next 12 sub-section/"rounds",
take the viewer through the following 2 minute rounds.
2. Workout w/o Equipment:
Round 1: 2 minutes of Jump Rope
Round 2: 2 minutes of Bobbing & Weaving,
followed by 15 situps
Round 3: 2 minutes of Hand Combinations, followed by 15
Round 4: 2 minutes of Kickboxing Combinations, followed by 15 situps
5: 2 minutes of Shadow Kickboxing
Round 6: 2 minutes of Shadow Kickboxing w/a
Partner (w/ 3 important sub-components)
After this is a couple quick minutes
of conditioning consisting of: squats, lunges, jump-change from fighting stance,
fighting stance/back knee to floor dips, squats w/front kicks, squats w/side kicks,
3.Workout w/ Equipment:
Round 7: 2 minutes on the
Round 8: 2 minutes on the Double Ended Bag
Round 9: 2 minutes on
the Hooking Bag
Round 10: 2 minutes on the Upper Cut Bag
Round 11: 2 minutes
on the Heavy Bag
Round 12: 2 minutes of Modified Sparring
this Mr. Thiboutot recommends push-ups, stretching, and a cool-down. He also recommends
strength exercises 2-3 times/weeks.
Again this program was very well done
and if followed non-stop, without any breaks, should make for a fun, challenging,
and beneficial cardio-vascular workout that also provides self-defense benefits.
If you're looking for an aerobic kickboxing workout, we highly recommend it.
