9/16/07 – Sunday Karate Workout – 500 kicks!

After having three classes this week with hundreds of reps, I felt that it’s time to do something similar at home.

Todays focus is kicks.

Front snap kick and back kick – 20 each leg (40 kicks total)
Front snap kick, side thrust kick and back kick – 20 each leg (60 kicks total)
Front snap kick – 50 each leg (100 Total)
Side thrust kick – 50 each leg (while holding on to the wall for balance) (100 total)
Roundhouse kick – 50 each leg ( while holding on to the wall for balance) (100 total)
Side snap kick – 25 each leg (while holding on to the wall) (50 total)
Lying side thrust kick – 25 each leg (50 total)

Between sets of kicks, I did crunches, lying knee raises to the side and straight up, lying butt kickers (you lay on the floor face down and  try to hit your butt with your heals).

After I finished the kicks, I spent time stretching my hips.  They really have improved and are loosening up more and more each day.
