Kickboxing Cardio Burn is another cardio kickboxing workout from Guillermo Gomez‘s Martial Fusion series. I really enjoyed this workout and I think Guillermo might be my new favorite cardio kickboxing trainer. His workouts are steady state cardio workouts and intermediate level. No crazy, hard to catch onto combos. He builds everything at an easy to follow pace. His workouts have impact but no crazy plyometrcis. The impact in this workout is boxers shuffles and jack variations. His workouts are perfect for my current fitness level. He works me hard but doesn’t leave me feeling wrung out at the end.
Kickboxing Cardio Burn is probably a bit more intense than his other 2 cardio kickboxing workouts I’ve done so far (Fitness Kickboxing and Kickboxing Cardio Power) but still steady state cardio. According to my FitBit I was in the cardio zone 75% of this workout and in the fat burn zone the other 15%. I burned nearly 500 calories. So a solid cardio workout. I loved it! And just an FYI, since I am a Jessica fan, Guillermo’s wife, Jessica Smith, is one of the background exercisers.
He has one more DVD that I am going to get but since my family has such a hard time getting gifts for me I have to wait until Christmas to get it as a gift. Guillermo also has another 5 workouts available only through Amazon streaming. I will probably try one of those, too, at some point. And if I like it–I’ll buy all 5!
Kickboxing Cardio Burn is 62 minutes; 7 minute warm up and 4:30 minute stretch. No equipment necessary but I wore weighted gloves. This workout consists of a single kickboxing combo that is built in layers. After the warm up you will work on this combo for the next 33 minutes of the workout. Guillermo inserts cardio bursts between the layers–jack variations, speed bags and punch drills. At the 40 minute point you move into a kick drill combo that you will do for 10 minutes (it burned my legs out nicely!). Then you move back to some cardio drills and, finally, you will repeat the combo built at the beginning of the workout a few more times before moving into the stretch.
