AngieFitnessTV: Low Impact Kickbox LIIT Training

Low Impact Kickbox LIIT Training is a combination workout from AngieFitnessTV. It starts with 14 minutes kickboxing and ends with 9:30 minutes of LIIT, which stands for Low Impact Interval Training. At the very end of the workout, during the stretch, Angie talks about this being an hour long workout, so apparently Angie edited away half to make this shorter workout. And you can tell–the changes are very abrupt.

I was pretty excited when I learned what LIIT was. Due to my shoulder surgery I am restricted in what I can do. I did have to modify the kickboxing portion by punching with only my right hand but I was able to do the LIIT training without any modifications until the final exercise. This is titled a low impact workout but the final exercise in the LIIT section is all hopping. I just did it as fast as possible without hopping.

Low Impact Kickbox LIIT Training is 33:59 minutes; 5 minute warm up and 5 minute stretch. Angie is wearing an 8 pound weighted vest and 1 pound weighted gloves. I did the same but I only wore the weighted glove on my right hand. The first 14 minutes is kickboxing combos that include various punch combos, speed bag arms and front kicks. At 19:30 the scene immediately and abruptly cuts to Angie on a 6 inch step positioned vertically. Words do appear about 20 seconds before this happens alerting you that LIIT training is coming up, but you get zero time to set your own step up. So I had to pause the video to set my step up. The LIIT portion is intense low impact intervals on the step: 40 seconds of work and 20 seconds of active recovery. You do each move twice. After 9:30 minutes of LIIT, at 29:04, the scene again immediately and abruptly cuts to Angie on the floor in child’s pose. The step is gone. About 20 seconds beforehand you are again warned with words at the bottom of the screen that this will happen, but I still had to pause the video to put my step away and get a mat. At this point Angie goes into a wonderful stretch that I, unfortunately, could not take full advantage of since she does the first minute or 2 in down dog. I did a modified down dog with my hands on a chair seat.

LIIT on step (#1-4 are all repeated but #5 is only done once):

  1. Fast straddle steps (start standing on top of step and straddle fast off and on the step)
  2. Straddle the step and alternate tapping feet to top of step
  3. With one foot on step, do fast knee pulls with other leg
  4. Start on floor beside step, step kick, step off and tap step with fingertips
  5. Alternating hopping toe taps to top of step

  1. I’m going to make some time to back through them all again soon just in case I missed anything, but I probably won’t be getting anything…. I recently got 5 (!!!) deal-of-the-day DVDs from the TFDVD site so I don’t really *need* anything at the moment.

    I am sad though that I completely missed out on this Mel B DVD that is at Best Buy, I am 99% sure when I was browsing awhile ago that that DVD was in stock and I just wasn’t paying attention. Over the past few months, a lot of workout DVDs at Best Buy have gone out of stock but then have been back in stock, but I have a sad sad sad feeling that this Mel B workout is gone forever…….(I’m also sad that I totally missed out on Casey Ho’s Pop Pilates (total body workout) DVD.

  2. Totally off topic but wanted to let you know that Target[dot]com is having a buy 2 get 1 free on all their exercise/fitness DVDs, sale ends Saturday. I think you have them all but Target has several Ilaria Montagnani DVDs, Exhale Core Fusion (misleading series name as its not exclusively core work, but I’m not sure if you are into the Exhale Core Fusion brand/concept), 10-Minute Solutions, and other things.

    I thought it would be easy for me to find three but I really just want Atletica 4…. Let me know if you end up getting anything 😉

    1. thanks–I’m checking it out now and so far I already own everything worth owning–but I plan to peruse them all. I am replying tho because I see the have one my favorite KCM workouts Cardio Sculpt Overload. It is one of her newer ones and I ADORE it. I am doing it now actually. I wear a 12 pound vest and 2.5 pound ankle weights. I use a 15 pound dumbbell in my right hand for all of the strength moves and a 3 pound dumbbell in my right hand for all of the boxing moves. My left hand obviously does nada. But I am getting a awesome workout! I am doing it twice a week. It’s $14.59 at Target. Totally worth it in my opinion.

      ***update–I just went through them all. They do have some good ones but I already own everything that interests me. Thank for heads up tho!
