I like to think that at One Love Fit Club in Chino Hills, CA, we provide the best leg workouts that are geared to each client’s needs and goals. It doesn’t matter whether your goal is to bulk up, tone and shape or simply build your strength and energy, there’s a workout that’s perfect for you. It’s no secret that kickboxing is by far one of the most beneficial leg workouts that has many other benefits. It not only helps you get legs toned fast and is one of the reasons we focus on it.
Kickboxing is one of the best ways to get the results you want and provides other benefits.
The first of those benefits is that it’s a lot of fun, which means you’ll not only do it more, but look forward to doing it. You’ll work every muscle in your legs when you kickbox. It’s far better than just doing a workout of individual exercises that work specific muscle groups and areas quads, thighs, hamstrings and calves. You’ll not only work every muscle group and area, you’ll also work it on all planes and directions. Best of all, you’ll enjoy the workout, which means you’ll look forward to doing it, adding to your motivation to continue. Kickboxing also works other areas of the body and provides a good aerobic workout, too.
If you want to improve your performance, try these exercises.
I love kickboxing because it’s a driving force to do better and get fitter. In fact, some of the workouts we provide help to improve kicks, while it builds balance, flexibility and strength. This workout allows you to kick harder, higher and maintain balance. Start with a lateral stretch. It looks simple, but if you push to get your legs further apart each time, gets really tough. Next move to lunges, then do squats, leg lifts and leg swings. For improved balance when kicking, try balancing on one leg while lifting the other to a 90 degree angle.
Tone your legs and build strength.
There are great exercises for toning the legs and building strength if you aren’t involved in kickboxing. These are exercises almost everyone has done. You can start with squats, one of the best for the hips, abs and butt, then move to lunges, sculpting thighs, bottom and abs. Plank leg lifts, step-ups and single-leg deadlifts add to upper leg strength. Stability ball knee tucks tone calves and shins. If you want to tone the whole leg, box jumps can do it. Resistance band leg presses tone the quads, hamstrings and calves.
- If you’re doing box jumps, make sure you have the best form and don’t lock your knees or quads. Also, drop the hips so it absorbs the force of landing. Doing these things will help prevent knee injury.
- You don’t have to go to the gym to get shapelier legs. Walk more, ride a bike, jump rope or go dancing to help tone those leg muscles. These are all activities you can do anywhere.
- Get more shapely legs at work or at home by taking the stairs instead of the elevator. Climbing steps will help shape your legs and provide a good cardio workout.
- If you want to try kickboxing for shapelier legs, we can make it affordable. For just $29.99, you can get five classes plus our special One Love Fit Club gloves.
