HIIT cardio kickboxing home workout

Cardio kickboxing is an interval based workout.

It combines cardiovascular training with martial arts. Not only does it improve our cardiovascular system, cardio kickboxing requires a lot of balance, strength and hand-eye coordination as well.

The HIIT cardio kickboxing workout is centered upon movement with an emphasis on punches, kicks, knees, and elbows. It’s a full body home workout that uses every muscle in the body, which makes it a very intense, though amazingly fun home workout.

But don’t worry, you will gain some size following this strength training program if you eat and sleep well.
