AngieFitnessTV: Kick Fit Kick & Tone

I have now done all of AngieFitnessTV‘s Kick Fit workouts! Kick & Tone is part of Angie’s Kick Fit program. There are 6 workouts in this program: this workout, Kickbox Jam, Box & Sculpt, Box & Burn, Cardio Kickboxing Zone and Kickboxing Intervals. This is a great little series/program. They are all 30 minute workouts that combine cardio kickboxing or boxing with some modality of strength work. And they are all different. They all include a warm up and stretch. Angie packs a lot into these excellent short workouts. She also sells a rotation calendar if you would like to do this series as a 4 week rotation. I purchased that calendar and may do some variation of it for my doubles workouts for a while. I do love these workouts!

This workout was all kicks and strength work. The first part of the workout consists of intervals: 45 seconds of kicks + 15 seconds of cardio. Angie does jumping jacks but she says you can do jumping jacks, low jacks, jog or march in place, your choice. Since this was all kicking, I really wanted to get the most out of my kicks. I wore an 8 pound vest, one pound ankle weights and one pound weighted gloves. There was no punching but since I was so weighted down, I did low impact moves during the 15 seconds of cardio and the gloves (as well as the vest and ankle weights) helped to increase the intensity. I started with low jacks but then changed to high knee pulls, pulling my arms down from overhead. That felt more intense then low jacks. I loved all of the kicking. After the kick-cardio is done, Angie moves into some body weight strength work that incorporates kicking. All of my weighted accoutrements helped to intensify those as well. Then you get your weights and/or barbell for the final strength training segment.

I love, love, love this series of workouts and will be returning to them frequently. They are perfect doubles workouts!

Kick & Tone is 31:16 minutes; 55 second intro; 4 minute warm up and 4 minute stretch. Equipment: fitness mat and barbell. Angie is using a barbell. She says she has 20 pounds of plates on it. The actual barbell looks like the light variety (no more than 5 pounds) so it is between 22 and 25 pounds. I used both a barbell at 25 pounds and dumbbells.
