What’s good about Kickboxing workouts
Kickboxing, or Cardio kickboxing as it is often referred to has been around for a long time, and for very good reason.
The amount of calories burned during a Kickboxing workout rivals any exercise, and the fact that it involves natural movements, a full range of motion, and can be performed at relatively high intensity makes it a very effective workout for shedding pounds and increasing energy levels.
But how does a Krav Maga workout compare to Kickboxing?
Krav Maga workouts are incredibly effective at burning calories too, and also provides important physical and mental benefits beyond just losing weight.
But there are a few aspects of Krav Maga you won’t get during a Kickboxing workout:
1. Contact – In a Krav Maga classes, you punch and kick to pads and heavy bags. This is important because by making contact, we are getting the additional benefits of resistance training, just like you would lifting weights at the gym. Krav Maga workouts use hi-rep schemes build lean muscle and burn fat without making you look bulky.
2. Anaerobic/interval Training Drills – Anaerobic training has been shown to be more effective at increasing aerobic (aka cardiovascular) capacity than low aerobic training. Interval training also has the additional benefits of reducing overuse injuries and increasing, rather than decreasing, overall strength*.
3. Useful skills/Mental Strength – In addition to putting you into fighting shape, Krav Maga prepares you, mentally and physically, to effectively defend yourself with the same set of skills used by elite military and law enforcement agencies around the world and right here in Austin.
4. Worldwide Recognition and Acceptance – Krav Maga is the official self-defense system of the Israeli defense forces, and is used by every branch of the US military and more than 500 state and federal agencies.
Why limit yourself to just kicking air?
Krav Maga is for adults with limited time to train, a craving for learning new skills, AND who are ready to get in the best shape of your life.
Krav Maga gives you the opportunity to multitask at the gym by; improving your physical conditioning, learning real world self defense skills, and enjoying the benefits that come with being a more confident, stronger human being.
