Cathe’s MMA Kickboxing

MMA Kickboxing is a 52 minute kickboxing workout; 10 minute warm up, 26 minutes kickboxing, 9 minute ab work and 7 minute cool down/stretch. Another Cathe kickboxing workout. I am slowly but surely accumulating Cathe DVDs and because I am currently in the middle of Jillian Michael’s Body Revolution which is where all of my strength work is done, my focus for blog posts is on cardio workouts. Although I really liked this workout, it is not the best or most intense kickboxing workout out there. Nor is it Cathe’s best. Nevertheless, I enjoyed it and it is still a solid intermediate level workout.  

The warm up was rather long but I liked it since it was all kickboxing—punches and kicks to warm you up. The actual training period consisted of 3 kickboxing combos (done on each side of body) with a high-impact kick drill in between each combo. I did not find these as intense as the combos and drills in her other workouts. The combos are taught add on style and were not hard to follow—though the knee/kicks in the last combo were weird and confusing. However, that was the shortest/quickest of all the combos so you really don’t spend much time on it anyway. I used weighted gloves to up intensity. 

I really liked the 9 minute ab work. It was unique and effective and she managed to work boxing into it. The last move in particular was difficult but does the job—you get into a wide plank and do a push up then twist and touch the opposite toe. The stretch was rather long but it felt good. 

This was not a high intensity workout but it is a good workout. I will use it for recovery days. In fact, that’s how I used it today! Yesterday was an Insanity day and tomorrow I’ll be doing HIITs—so I needed something more moderate and this fit the bill perfectly.

    1. Yes–definitely. In my opinion Rock’m Sock’m kickboxing is more intense than MMA Kickboxing so you should have no problems. If you are looking for something more intense then try Cathe’s Kick, Punch, Crunch. Or Kickbox Burn by Heather Corndorf.
