Kickboxing & Compound Weights is another great Cathe Live kickboxing workout. Intense and fun. It is set up in Cathe’s standard cardio kickboxing/boxing structure–combos alternated with cardio blasts. Overall it wasn’t too complicated but she did have one rather complex punching combo that was even giving her problems! Cathe kept messing up her own combo. That’s ok tho. I’m pretty sure that she worked both sides of the body pretty evenly during the kickboxing. Plus, it was a lot of fun! At the very end of the kickboxing portion there was a very short 3 minute heavy bag portion. As long as you are wearing weighted gloves (or boxing gloves), no punching bag is actually needed. Once the kickboxing is complete, the gloves come off for some metabolic weight training. Cathe uses 10 pound dumbbells for all of it, but that was too light for me. In the future, I’ll probably use 12 pound dumbbells for everything except the rear delt flys. I’ll stick w/ 10 pounds for the rear delt flys. She does those fast.
