Kickboxing Fat-Loss Circuit

Provided By:

How it works
This quickfire workout uses Tabata training, a method developed in Japan that trains your body’s aerobic and anaerobic systems at the same time. Doing the circuit under Tabata rules will burn fat and improve your VO2 max (the maximum volume of oxygen that you can use during exercise). It will also induce excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC), which gives your metabolism a boost after your finish exercising and encourages further fat loss. At the same time you’ll strengthen the muscles that block and punch, and teach your body to operate at peak performance.

In Tabata training, you perform each exercise by counting time rather than reps. Do as many repetitions as you can in 20 seconds, then rest for ten seconds. Repeat this a total of eight times. Rest for two minutes before moving on to the next exercise.
