This section of my website used to be dedicated to triathlon training, personal race results and certification reviews, like Turbo Kick. I am expanding it to include more generic health & fitness topics. Also, I talk a lot about "D" -- he's my husband (Dave Liu)!

Calories Burned During Kickboxing

24 Hour Fitness has an article on their website summarizing the results of an American Council on Exercise (ACE) study on the number of calories expanded during cardio kickboxing.

The 15 women who participated in the study burned ~8.3 calories per minute (350-450 calories/hr) while performing a combination of upper-body (e.g., upper cuts, jabs) and lower-body (e.g., roundhouse kicks, front and back kicks) movements.
