To get better balance, power and agility, kickboxing is king among workouts. Unlike most other types of exercise, kickboxing emphasizes powerful movements. Kickboxing training tends to involve shorts bouts, two to three minutes long, of intense, repetitive movement. If you look at the research on high-intensity interval training [HIIT], you see these short, intense periods of activity can have big benefits. Some research shows that even very brief stretches—just 60 seconds—of HIIT can offer the same gains in heart and lung health as 45 minutes of less-intense exercise. It also torches a lot of calories. One study from the American Council on Exercise (ACE) found that the kind of punching-and-kicking combinations used in “cardio kickboxing” classes burn more than eight calories per minute—about the same amount you’d burn while swimming.
CrossFit combines strength training, explosive plyometrics, speed training, Olympic- and power-style weight lifting, kettle bells, body weight exercises, gymnastics, and endurance exercise. By doing this, CrossFit targets what it calls the major components of physical fitness: cardiorespiratory fitness, stamina, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, power, speed, agility, balance, coordination, and accuracy. CrossFit workouts typically combine explosive exercises done in a circuit format: One exercise follows right after the next, with very little rest in between.
