Work in some kickboxing into your workout routine with these four moves. Mark Vohsman with Farrell's eXtreme Bodyshaping shows us how:

As with any workout form and technique keep you safe and injury free. When performing kickboxing we begin with proper stance. Stand with your feet shoulder width apart with a small stagger.

Kick, Jab, Cross, Knee Strike:
The heel of the back foot is lifted to allow for mobility. With your hands up at your cheeks, elbows down and in by your ribs you are ready to punch. The jab comes from your lead hand (front leg). The cross comes from the back leg. Both are straigth punches done at chin high. A knee strike is done by pushing the hip forward and driving the knee. The toes should point to the ground and the heel comes back toward your glutes. This becomes a front snap kick by releasing the foot once the knee is raised. You lead with the knee then let the foot go out.
