Pyramid Kick-Combo Progression

This is a BoxAerobics pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 15372)

I keep the bpm around 135/140. Start: neutral stance /facing front

Repeat this 7x (56 counts)

Bounce heels to floor neutral stance (8 counts) TOTAL: 64 counts. (the bouncing of heels allows a change of lead leg)

Repeat starting with:

Repeat this 7x (56 counts)

Bounce heels to floor (8 counts)

Now: just repeating this combo works a class well. To add on, continue:

Repeat 7x (28 counts) then bounce heels (4 counts) 32 counts. Change lead leg and start with LEFT knee/ RIGHT back kick.

To add on: switch the knee strike to a front snap kick. Same count as above/a bit higher intensity. (snap front RIGHT/ back kick LEFT)

Hints: good form on knee strikes! real focus!
Chamber the knee high before executing the back kick!
Challenge your class to LOOK at the target behind them BEFORE they back kick!
Remind them their HEEL is the weapon~foot is flexed with the heel leading on the back kick.

I use this progression two thirds the way through class and it always elicits wonderful groans!

Email me if i've been unclear!
Thanks!
