Kickboxing in Dubai – Does it promote weight loss?
Expert male personal trainer in Dubai and kickboxing instructor Kieran explains why kickboxing is one of the best ways to lose weight.
Kickboxing is a very interesting fitness workout that can provide high energy, is also fun and unusual compared to the normal workouts. To have fun and exciting workouts planned for you, hire a personal trainer in Dubai who ensures safe and effective workout and adds fun exercises to your fitness regime.
Kickboxing is an outstanding method for losing weight, because it is a very practical application of the popular high intensity interval training (I.e. HIIT). Kickboxing is a very exhausting exercise where you’re giving yourself 100%, which means it’s great for fat loss and general health improvements, but it also means you can’t do it non-stop for the entire duration – even the pros take rests between rounds! I would suggest to structure the rounds just like the pros in that they are 3 minutes long.
Once starting, you will probably need to rest for short periods during the round, but that’s no problem at all – just give it your 100% during the round. Then, the duration of the rest is not that important for fat loss, the pros do 1 minute but I would suggest taking 2-3 minutes between rounds to fully recover.
If you have any weak points (abs, legs, etc.) this is a great time to work on them while you’re recovering from your kickboxing round. Aim to add 1 round each workout, until you can manage approximately 10-15 rounds. Always remember to warm-up (skipping is good as it warms up the shoulders, wrists and ankles) and stretch any tight points to improve your kicking ability.
