February 13, 2014Looking for a way to improve your aerobic workout? You might want to kickbox your way to better health! A non-contact kickboxing routine has been shown to improve physical and cardiovascular fitness. A recent study looked at a group of women weighing an average of 135 pounds. The study utilized four kickboxing routines: upper body jabs, lower body kicks, a combination of jabs and kicks, plus a conditioning routine that consisted of jumping jacks and simulated rope jumping. Participants burned the most calories performing a combination of kicks and jabs. Calories were burned at a rate of 6.5 to 8 calories per minute, totaling 450 calories an hour! That is equivalent to an hour of jogging.
