All over conditioning
D -Dojo Karate
This workout is with Igor Dyachenko who is world class certified trained killing machine and I’m not exaggerating He has been a trained fighter for over 10 years winning many championships My tutorial and private lesson re taught me how to kick , punch and use my body weight and movement to my advantage. All while lifting my and toning my thighs . Next day soreness is guaranteed. 800- 1000 calorie burn (d-dojo.com)
Best Burn Workouts
FlyWheel – Is the ultimate cycling workout. What to love about it : You compete with the class and yourself to keep your literally on your toes . But honestly the competition is with yourself to be better than you were the last class. You burn more, sweat more its a win win .Expect to burn an average of 600-800 Calories per class. (per Flywheel) I’d call this an abs and butt creator.
Drill Fitness – Thanks to Class pass classes like this are accessible to anyone who joins the site. Drill Fitness classes are designed to make students SWEAT.And you will in buckets. The classes are bootcamp-eque designed to build up endurance and strength. Using a combo of strength training techniques students are challenged with kettle bells , dumbells, and tons of squats. Each student wears a heart monitor to track progress and intensity. Its the best 50 minutes of your day that flies by.
This class starts off with a warm up that is tough. Expect to be one of the guys today your train hard here . There is no special treatment because your a girl. You will be expected to do full on push ups ladies. Students train in a traditional Muy Thai dojo with spartan feel. Warm ups consist of a series 5-6 minute drills of circuit exercises. Here’s and an example of round 150 quats, 100 situp 25 pushups 25 jumping jacks . This is done for 5 minutes straight then on to the next round of drills. This goes on for about 20 minutes and then you start the real class. Ready? Your abs will thank you a week later.
