Home Kickboxing Cardio Abs Workout
If you have checked the other pages of abmachinesguide.com, you have probably read that I do kick-boxing. I started it to develop my cardiovascular system and of course to burn fat. I have been doing it for 4-5 months now, and I lost a lot of belly fat.
I realized that the movements I make during my kick-boxing routine such as high, front and knee kicks, shin blocks and others train my ab muscles extremely well. They can be seen as vertical ab exercises. Moreover, a 30-40 minutes intensive kick-boxing program is truly sweaty. You do not need any equipment.
HIIT Cardio and Abs
Of course, not everybody likes doing kicking and punching type training. For them here is a great cardio and abs workout routine made by Fitnessblender. It is a 30 mins training with numerous efficient horizontal and vertical abdominal exercises and many other activities.
Anyway, it works all body parts efficiently. It is beneficial for both men and women, though it is made by Kelli.
Personally, I suggest doing this routine at least 3 times a week. Follow the guidelines and perform the exercises as correctly as possible. Push the movements and never stop!

To tell the truth when I started doing workouts 10 months ago, this video motivated me towards to do boxing as cardio training. This is a 17 minutes routine with kickboxing movements and abs and obliques exercises. I did this workout 3 times a week besides calisthenics and I lost 6 kgs in 2 months and I burned a lot of belly fat. 🙂 I recommend this routine not just for weight loss but for getting rid of stress.

If you want to add some extra boost for your abdominal training, use the good old skipping rope. Jumping rope exercises are very effective to work your entire body, lose weight plus they help to improve your cardiovascular system.
Are core workouts without cardio effective?
Yes, but it is strongly suggested. If you have low body fat level and your tummy is not covered with fat, you will surely needs fewer fat burning exercises and diet. However, if you have some extra fat, you have to do cardio to burn it. Just because you do ab workouts, you will not have a flat stomach. You should burn calories, it is as simple as that.

Of course! For example burpees and various mountain climber exercises are very useful as well. It think, running or jumping rope is the best cardio for flat stomach.
