AngieFitnessTV: Kick Fit Cardio Kickboxing Zone

Cardio Kickboxing Zone is part of AngieFitnessTV‘s Kick Fit fitness program. There are 6 workouts in this series and I plan to do them all. I’ve already done Kickboxing Intervals and I loved it. Today I did Cardio Kickboxing Zone–loved it, too! These are awesome and excellent kickboxing workouts. This workout is heavy on the kicks–which I love! I know, I’m using the work “love” a lot but I loved this workout and I love Angie’s Kick Fit program so far.

This workout is mainly low impact. There is some impact but it is easily modifiable. Like I do with most of Angie’s low impact workouts, I did some things to increase the intensity. I wore an 8 pound weighted vest, one pound weighted gloves and one pound ankle weights. I got an excellent and fun cardio and muscle conditioning workout. I finished this workout about 2 hours ago and my legs are still feeling it. According to my FitBit I burned 216 calories, “walked” 2816 steps and was in my cardio zone 71% of the workout.

Cardio Kickboxing Zone is 31:06 minutes; 45 second intro, 4 minute warm up and 3 minute stretch. Equipment: weighted gloves and a fitness mat. Each exercise is done for one minute.

  1. Alternating front kicks
  2. March 3x + crescent knee; changes to crescent kick
