Let’s burn some calories and build some strength while having a ton of fun! This Build & Burn Cardio Boxing Strength workout gives you equal amounts of both cardio and strength plus tons of fun to keep your mind busy and make the workout fly by! Join GHUTV’s Chris Freytag along with trainers Leah Zahner and Sam Cameranesi as they guide you through powerful kickboxing moves followed by solid strength training with weights.
This boxing and strength workout is divided into two sections. The first 20 minutes are all about cardio kickboxing with emphasis on the cardio! Your heart rate is going up and staying there for the entire time. You’ll jab, hook and uppercut strengthening your upper back, arms and shoulders. You’ll also kick, squat and burpee strengthening your lower body and popping that heart rate up! The moves are simple to do, but designed to keep you focused and engaged to make the time fly. And it does! Only have 20 -minutes to workout? You can do the first half for a cardio workout and come back another day for the strength!
The second half of the workout is all about strength. Grab your heavy weights and join along as we work on lunges and squats for the lower body, lat raises, bicep curls and thrusters for the upper body. Chris encourages you to try heavy weights so you can work to muscle fatigue. On the other hand, she will always encourage you to work at your own level. Sam will show modifications and help you through any low impact moves you might need. If you have two sets of weights bring out the heavier set for squats or biceps then switch to your lighter weights for triceps or shoulders. You choose! This workout wraps up with core strength to complete the picture! If you love this workout and want more like it, try our Jab, Punch, Crunch series!
