Workout Wednesday: Tae Kwon Do

No. 1. Front Kicks

Start off by standing with your legs slightly apart and with your hands up so that you can protect your face.  Now bring up your right knee and have it bent, then extend your leg out in front, bend it again and then put it down. Repeat this four more times and then continue on with the left leg. Do three sets of five each leg. This exercise works on the glutes, hip flexors, quads, hamstrings and calves.

No. 2. Push Up Explosion

Get into a plank position with your arms straight. Do four push-ups. After completing the push ups, stand up and do a total of six punches, alternating each hand (three punches each hand). This exercise should be done for one minute. This exercise works on the shoulders and chest.

No. 3.  Shotgun Round Kicks

Start off by putting your left hand on a wall and bring up your right knee and have it bent on a forty-five degree angle. Extend your leg out and bend it again. Without putting your leg down you will do repeat round kicks as fast as you can for a total of ten seconds and then repeat the exercise with your left leg. Do three sets of three on each leg. Glutes, quads, and hamstrings are the muscles that are being worked on.

No. 4.  Squat Drill with Step Up Side Kicks

With your feet standing hip-width apart, you squat down going to about 90 degrees at the same time keeping your back straight. Once you return up, step behind your right foot with your left foot, bring up your right leg and have it bent. Then extend your leg sideways, bend it, and put down. Step back with your left leg, and squat again, and then repeat the exercise four more times and then do the same with your left leg. Do three sets of five on each leg. This exercise works on quads and hamstrings.
