Today I am bringing you a Bikini Bootcamp workout that combines two of my favorite things. This cardio kickboxing & back workout has it all. Fat-burning cardio, posture-improving back exercises, and a bit of core work!
We will start with a bit of kickboxing which will scorch major calories. Blending punches and kicks will work the core, back, shoulders and most importantly help you burn fat.
The second part of this workout includes all of my favorite at-home back exercises. The back is one of my favorite muscle groups to work, but it can be tricky to isolate for many people. Focus on practicing proper form with each exercise. Keep your shoulders and biceps relaxed during each movement, and actively think about contracting your back muscles.
