Kickboxing Workout: Sculpt Muscles and Blast Fat
6. Roundhouse Kick
A circular kick (your leg moves in an arc). Montagnani recommends doing it with the front leg because it puts less stress on the opposite knee.
Imaginary Targets: Knee, Obliques, Head
- Stand with right foot forward in fighting stance.
- Bend right knee, bringing heel toward glutes, and pivot on left foot, turning hips to left (not shown).
- Strike from right to left in an arc with right foot, extending kick from knee, toes pointed.
- Retract and return to fighting stance.
Quick Tip: Imagine slapping target with your shoelaces.
