Boxing Toward Better Health

I'm always looking for a routine that provides me with exercise, and it is something that I actually enjoy doing. That's not an easy combination to find. But I have found that kickboxing is one way for me to get some exercise sessions.

So here are some tips to get you started with a simple kickboxing routine.

Your stance is important. Make sure to place your foot of your non dominant side behind you and keep weight on the balls of your feet.

Protect your face by bringing your fists up in front of it.

Start by making a jab. You'll need to extend your dominant hand straight in front of you. Then pull it back to the starting place.

In order to do a cross you move your non dominant hand in front of you as you pivot your back foot. Then bring it back to the starting place.

Like all exercising breathing is important. Exhale on each punch and focus on using your legs, hips and core for a more powerful punch.

Alternate between jabs and crosses for one minute. Then do squats or push ups for one minute. Repeat this five times.

You'll have a great work out that has used all sorts of different muscles.
