5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

This is a BoxAerobics pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 10217)

5, 4, 3, 2, 1 is a very easy but very good cardio workout.

1) Start from a fighting stance with one leg forward. With your rear leg, deliver 5 round house kicks (or round kicks) to a heavy bag or some type of padded striking surface. As you set your kicking leg down, place it in front so it is the lead leg and drop the other leg back. Now deliver 5 more round house kicks with the other leg which is now your rear leg. And when it is done kicking, set it down in front and drop the other leg back.

2) Without resting, now throw 4 round house kicks with the rear leg. And switch when done and throw 4 more roundhouse kicks with the rear leg.

3) You keep working your way down in the number of kicks that you do. So the progression works down with 3 & 3 kicks, then 2 & 2 kicks, then 1 & 1 kick.

4) There is no rest during the pattern. You can rest when you are done.

NOTE: This was adapted from a Muay Thai training drill. The kick used in Muay Thai looks similar to a roundhouse kick. If you wish to stretch the drill out you can make this into a 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 drill, or go from 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

Have Fun!!!!
