Slug yourself in the belly with this kickboxing workout

Find a spacious area of the gym (we hesitate to recommend the dance studio, but it just might work) with a mirror or heavy bag and work the following combinations. Follow the steps below without rest in between:

  1. Put your hands up by your chin and step back with your right leg (a fighter's stance). Throw 10 jabs with your left hand.
  2. Throw one left jab, followed by one right cross (twist your hips, driving straight ahead with the right hand). Repeat for 20 punches.
  3. Perform the combination from step 2 again, adding a roundhouse kick at the end with the left leg: Raise your knee to just above your waist, pivot on your right foot and turn your body to the right so your left leg turns 90 degrees. Now snap your foot out, imagining you are kicking an opponent in the side. Repeat the entire combination for 30 total strikes.
  4. Perform the combination from step 3 again, adding a right hook at the end: Twist your body, swinging your right hand to the left. Repeat the entire combination for 40 total strikes.
  5. Perform the combination from step 4 again, then throw a roundhouse kick with your right leg. Repeat the entire combination for 50 total strikes.

All this will take only about two minutes. Rest for 30 seconds, then repeat all the steps in order up to five more times.
