Here’s how to get more flexible for Kickboxing:
- Warm up (5 – 10 minutes of jogging or skipping)
- Perform Dynamic & Static Stretch (moving vs stationary stretches)
- Start & Finish Kickboxing session
- Perform Dynamic & Static Stretch for 5 – 10 minutes
Repeat these steps with every Kickboxing session you attend.
Take a video of you skipping (A giphy would work)
Warming up your muscles before stretching is important because it increased the flow of blood to the muscle. As a result, this allows your muscles to be more loose. This also allows the heart to recieve more oxgyen through the blood, which will place less stress on it during your workout.
Warming up and stretching before your workout will give you more range of motion. This is crucially important for when you perform harder moves like lead and rear switch kicks that require proper hip movement and more.
