All Out Cardio Step/Kickboxing

All Out Cardio Step/Kickboxing is an intense (and long!) all cardio workout. Instead of reserving this for a weekend, I just got out of bed 10 minutes earlier this morning. There is no strength work in this workout and the majority of the workout is not done interval style (Yvette’s workouts are usually done interval style). It does appear that Yvette is timing each exercise or counting reps, but each exercise flows immediately into the next–no short recoveries. I was worn out by the end of this workout! I worked hard. According to my Fitbit I burned 600 calories. You do get a water break a bit more than halfway through this workout then when there is 10 minutes left you get another break. The last part of class (after the second water break) is done interval style–20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest. If you are looking for an excellent and long all cardio workout then this is for you! I really enjoyed it. You do both kickboxing drills and step cardio work. You also do regular cardio blasts (no step and not kickboxing). So a nice variety–and you just go-go-go! The step cardio is all very basic step work–no complex choreography so don’t worry about that. Plus, there is a good bit of plank work so you are also working your core.

All Out Cardio Step/Kickboxing is 70 minutes; 11 minute warm up and 1:30 minute stretch. Equipment: step @ 8 inches, weighted gloves and 5 pound dumbbells. This is a pure cardio workout. It is not a timed interval workout like most of Yvette’s other workouts that I’ve done. You just keep going–one move after the other, cardio kickboxing and step moves. @ 40:50 mark you get a 45 second water break. @ 61 minutes you get another 30 second water break. When you start up again, you do 20/10 intervals and you will use 5 pound dumbbells to increase intensity.
