Kickboxing is an excellent full-body workout. Once you’re familiar with the basic kicks in kickboxing, you can take your heavy bag workouts to the next level.

This 10-minute kickboxing workout highlights the roundhouse kick, a powerhouse kick that incorporates your full body. Also known as a round kick, this move generates its power from the momentum of your body rotating on the base of the foot.

If you want to work on your form for the round kick, check out how to do a roundhouse kick before tackling this intense 10-minute workout.

10 Minute Kickboxing Burnout

Round 1

Shanie Smash Throwing a Jab Punch

Jab - Cross Coast (1-2 Coast)

When you ‘coast’ in boxing, it’s comparable to doing a light jog versus a run. Use the jab-cross coasting combination to catch your breath.

  • Repeat a jab-cross (1-2) punch combination at a steady pace, not full power

  • Keep punches straight to and from the chin

  • Remember to stay light on your toes

  • Keep your knuckles turned inwards

  • Continue for 30 seconds

Cross - Lead Kick (2-LK)

  • Throw a cross punch

  • Step out into a lead kick

  • Repeat for 30 seconds

Remember you want to create an angle with your body when you throw the kick to avoid having your face directly in front of the punching bag (if it was an opponent, you’d be open to getting hit)

Squat Kicks

  • Face the punching bag

  • Drop into a squat

  • Stand upright

  • Throw a lead kick with your left leg on the punching bag

  • Squat

  • Throw a rear kick with your right leg

  • Repeat for 30 seconds

Keep your hands up by your face to enhance your muscle memory - always be on guard!

Jab - Cross Coast (1-2 Coast)

  • Repeat a jab-cross (1-2) punch combination at a steady pace, not full power

  • Keep punches straight to and from the chin

  • Continue for 30 seconds

Remember this is a chance to catch your breath!

Power Rear Kicks

  • From fighting stance, shift your weight to the ball of your lead (left) leg

  • Pivot on your lead leg to bring your right leg up and around, hitting the bag with your shin

Don’t focus on the power of your kick and try to land hard with every throw. Bring your leg up and over like you’re chopping down a tree.

Finish the round strong by kicking as hard as you can!
