Kickboxing Workout: Sculpt Muscles and Blast Fat
A straight punch thrown from the rear hand, so if your right foot is in front, your left hand does a cross.
Imaginary Target: Nose
- Stand with right foot forward in fighting stance.
- Turn left foot, knee and hip to the right at the same time, followed by the left shoulder and left arm.
- Twist your forearm so your fist is horizontal at full extension; don't lock your elbow.
- Recoil and return to fighting stance immediately.
Quick Tip: The force of the cross originates from the hips. By using your core, you'll pack a more powerful punch.
