  1. You have an amazing body. I know I can never truly attain it due my injuries. I can't really lift or do too much cardio. But I try

  2. I'm contemplating helping to get my wife in shape but I don't really know what to have her do since my workouts are geared towards muscle gain and not really what a woman would be looking for but I am pretty well trained in Muay Thai and other martial arts so maybe I should just have her do something similar to this video except maybe more intense?

  3. it would be great if you actually had someone who knows how to punch correctly. thats a wrist injury waiting to happen. also might want to move around a bit more and not be so grounded.

  4. "If you don't have a punching bag, you can just punch the air." That's what told me she had almost no idea what she was doing, also she was punching incorrectly. It's a miracle she didn't sprain her wrist.

  5. no gloves or wraps???!!! yeowch! i'm a kickboxing trainer and I learned that is a BAD idea… PLEASE PROTECT YOUR KNUCKLES AND WRIST.. good workout overall… nice mixture of planes of motion

  6. work out looks good. 👍👍 I would be seriously punching that bag though… even bare handed i hit it hard… knees.. Id be pounding that thing…. take the cardio level up ⬆

  7. 20 second squats
    20 seconds high knees
    20 seconds stretch hips
    30 seconds punching and squatting
    30 seconds speed jabs
    30 seconds left, right, right knee
    30 seconds right, left, left knee
    20 seconds cross punch
    30 speed jabs
    30 left right right knee
    30 right left left knee
    20 seconds squat, elbow left, left knee
    20 seconds squat right elbow, right knee
    20 seconds jumping jacks with kickout
    20 seconds kneeing both knees
    20 seconds jumping jack with kickout
    20 seconds kneeing both knees
    60 seconds on bike

  8. It's funny to see what passes for technique in a fitness oriented cardio kickboxing setting versus a martial arts oriented kickboxing setting.

  9. I think I will consider trying this I have a standing cardio punching bag and an elliptical bike so it might be worth improvising. also I would agree with those who mentioned you should be using some form of protection always for knuckles and wrists. so wraps and/or boxing gloves for me! thank you for the great video.

  10. This is a great routine, I have a free standing punch bag and it's not always easy to figure out how to work it into a workout. Thank you!!

  11. Thank you for this video. Its so informative especially since I just got myself a bag and I'm not sure where to start. This helps.

  12. If you want a real high intensity kickboxing workout where you actually hit the bags and hit them hard with proper form, check out the 10in30 channel.

  13. This workout is so unsafe. Wrong punching technique and her bike setup is too high. Also she should either use the pedal straps or use riding shoes.

  14. Love that you're motivating people to train, but you are going to end up doing yourself some serious Injuries or even worse, someone trying this at home will.
    Please take some beginner kickboxing classes at least and Learn correct form. It would really help with your demonstrations and limit your risk.
    Also I'd recommend you invest in some gloves and wraps otherwise your wrist and elbows are going to take some serious damage.

  15. Is this supposed to be taken seriously? You are not wearing the correct gear, you are not defining your punches ie. jab, cross, hook, uppercut… and the bag is barely moving. So why use the bag? There are several other issues I could point out.. but I’ll stick with what’s most important. Along with using wraps and gloves… each type of punch/ kick should be accompanied by correct posture and footing for maximum impact with the bag. Yes kickboxing is fun cardio but it is also an amazing tool to learn self-defense and self confidence. Ladies.. I can guarantee that correctly hitting the bag with power will not make you bulky, but give you strength and agility while leaning you out. It will also shorten your reaction time and give you the tools necessary to protect yourself if God forbid you ever come to that point.

  16. Luckily she’s not punching hard enough to hurt anything but seriously good form will give the most effective workout while minimizing injury. As a pro fighter this is really hard to watch.
