Cardio Kickboxing Exercises & Tips : Push Ups & Crunches for Cardio Kickboxing


My name is Chemin Alldredge, I’m a second
degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do. I’m here with Expert Village and today we’ll be going
over beginner cardio kickboxing. Now that our heart rate is up, we could use this bag,
we’re going to do some workouts doing some abs and some upper body with some push ups.
This bag is a great bag to use, but if you can, just because we’re doing beginner cardio,
we’d like to use our little dragon bag. What we want to do is, I want you to guys to walk
it out. You’re going to just do front kicks, walk it out, get your heart rate down. Keep
you guards up – always make sure your guards are up. After we do that, we want to slowly
walk it out and what we’re going to do first is we’re going to work on push ups. This bag
is great to use because it’s low but it’s going to give you a little bit of height.
Notice I have still have my gloves on so I can still move my fingers, so what I’m going
to do is I’m going to come down, I’m going to put my legs right on there and I’m going
to do a set of five. And you’re going to just come all the way down, making sure your back
is straight, bending those arms. Make sure to breathe, do not forget to breathe. Four
and five. And you’re going to come back up. You can do three sets of five or however and
then just keep building up your momentum. A great other part to do with this bag, push
it over just a little bit more, is for crunches. You can put your legs up and do your crunches,
do slight crunches or, what we’re going to do is we’re going to wrap our legs around
the bag and we’re going to come up and we’re going to punch. Notice I still have my gloves
on. You’re going to come up, two, three, four, five. Do not forget to breathe. You always
want to make sure that you keep your stomach nice and tight so that you’re getting that
workout there. If you’re doing, coming up and doing crunches on the bag, you want to
push up making sure you bring your shoulders up and not your head so you don’t strain your
neck muscle. You want to bring your shoulders all the way up, two, three, four, five and
those are your abs.

  1. 1. Stop saying UM
    2. Work on your pushups, especially when you are giving an example to others.
    3. I love breathing too =D

  2. Those push ups where a bit on the easy side. Especially for someone doing a Tae-Kwon-Do. Or any form of Karate for that matter. Talk about doing it on your fists…

  3. I bet she's a real black belt .. the way she push ups is totally a beginner.. the way she do setups! not pro! but the idea of it it helps!
