I think I’d be remiss if I forgot tell you guys that yesterday was my 7 year anniversary with my best friend. 
Seven years of bliss. 
Seven years of give and take.
He moved me across the country.

He puts food on the table.
I eat the food he puts on the table.
He gave me babies.
I got super fit for him after the babies.

The theme for this week’s Tuesday Trainer is KICKBOXING/TAEBO!! 

imagesCA89UMSQ-002

I’ll be honest – aside from using some kicks and punching sequences in my classes and watching Billy Blank’s Taebo DVDs, I don’t really know that much about martial arts and kickboxing.  I know that when I incorporate kickboxing into my Bootcamps (specifically weighted punches), my heart rate skyrockets!  Good thing we have Christin as a “Contributing Trainer” to give us some tips!

Christin’s Tips for Martial Arts (video below):

  • All moves come from the core.
  • Make sure that every punch/kick is coming STRAIGHT out from the body.
  • Fight an invisible enemy.

I think the invisible enemy thing is VITAL.  And I’d add sound effects to the list – you need to make an Incredible Hulk sound as your strike.  And aim for the gullet.  Gets ‘em every time.

    Happy Anniversary! I have to admit I don’t know much about kickboxing either. I did do Tae Bo back in the day but I don’t remember much other than kicking and punching alot!

    Looks like a great workout! Thanks ladies!
