HIIT for Beginners Week 3: Kickboxing Intervals

HIIT for Beginners Week 3: Kickboxing Intervals
In This Article

WELCOME TO HIIT FOR BEGINNERS!

Today’s session features a kickboxing-inspired interval training session that can easily be done in a small space at home. In the workout video below, we’ll perform a few rounds of intervals that alternate between periods of higher intensity with active rest, and we’ll review proper punching form and technique as we go — no previous kickboxing experience is required. I’ll show you both high- and low-impact options so you can make the moves work for you. Listen to your body throughout the sessions, and modify or skip any moves that are too much for your current fitness level. (I’ll also provide options throughout the routines to help you make it work for you.)
