You don't have to be a great kickboxer to have a great kickboxing workout!
Kickboxing Underground lets you conduct your own exciting heavy bag fight sessions in the privacy of your own home or studio. This is the most unique and durable home kickboxing training system ever designed.
Train at home, with your own music, avoid the commute, and still have the best workout of your life..
This is perfect for people who have joined a group class gym, but feel they’re no longer getting much from the classes.
Rotate through a series of workouts; you’ll only be doing the same workout about once per month. This variety keeps things very interesting. Every workout will seem brand new and fresh no matter how long you keep up with it.
You will follow a System that reinforces good fight habits, while getting a great workout using your entire body.
No boot camp exercises to do. (You’ll get tons of core work by kickboxing, you won’t need anything else.)
Each workout is 10 rounds and is designed to make sure none of the following areas get neglected.
- Full body muscle strengthening
- Fat burning (utilises the principles of high-intensity workout training, or H.I.I.T.)
- Athleticism, coordination, balance
- Stress reduction
- Consistency in your workouts
- Flexibility (it’s so easy to neglect it, so we built it right into the system and use it for a key advantage.)
There’s a lot wrong with 99% of the group kickboxing classes out there
- They interject so many bootcamp exercises into the workout that about 80% of what you’re doing is anything but kickboxing.
- They typically will work you so hard that it’s difficult to pair your training with any other kind of workouts you might have in your week. Imagine needing to rest from “leg day” and you show up to class and they want to blast your quads for 20 minutes! (Has this ever happened to you?)
- The instructors at most classes just seem to “wing it” and therefore you get stuck with the same old tired combos again and again and again.
- Heck, usually they have you doing pushups while you’re doing the damn combo! (This is not what fighting looks like, and this kind of training does not promote good fight habits and disciplines.)
The scenario is not any more promising for home kickboxing workouts. They typically suffer from 3 main weaknesses, which our System avoids:
- The workouts are on DVD and require a TV or computer nearby. (It is no fun to work out with an electronic screen.)
- They are designed as “products” to sell, not a true system to solve a problem. They will either burn you out, or bore you. (Our workouts were designed to solve one major problem: “how to have the perfect home workout routine”. We didn’t set out to “sell something”.)
- Other workouts include tons of energy-expending boot camp exercises. Sure, they will get you in shape (if they don’t burn you out or make you hate exercise first.) But you’ll be left with very little that is applicable to a true fighting scenario. That is why people that do these workouts don’t get any better at fighting. A curious phenomenon indeed.
What makes our training different?
I hacked the home kickboxing workout and developed over a period of a couple years the absolute best workout possible. Its the best because its easiest to stick with, you get to listen to your own music, and you get to practice things that are fun and interesting, and that increase your skill. It is specifically designed to keep you motivated and avoid injury and burnout (the two Enemies of a workout plan).
This is not cardio kickboxing. Our method has you keeping your eyes on your opponent (heavy bag) the entire round. You’re not doing the brainless fluff you see in most classes. You’re doing stuff you see in exciting UFC, MMA, and Kickboxing fights.
There are no DVD’s to watch. Just show up to your heavy bag, start your music and your timer, and follow along one round at a time to whatever Workout you’re on in our System. It’s just like a group class, except each class is going to be awesome. There are no bad workouts in our System. You will love them all. You will actually look forward to the next training session. If you’ve been training for 6 months at your local kickboxing gym, or if you’re Chuck Liddell, it doesn’t matter. Each workout is going to serve you well at any level of expertise. (except beginner)
At the Kickboxing Underground each 10-Round Workout is a fight . . . where time flies by, your outside worries take a break, you sharpen your skills and habits, and develop a tight, fit body as a natural by-product of the training. You might even think it’s fun.
It works exactly the same whether at home, a gym or absolutely anywhere there’s a bag. The advantage of being at home is that you have control of the music!
This program is designed to keep you healthy, active, and strong for years and years, not for a short burst of ultimate fitness. You can only train so hard for so long before you accumulate overuse injury and possible burnout. This system is to help you temper those extremes, and keep you injury free and feeling motivated, energetic, and less stressed. But primarily it is designed to strengthen your bones, muscles, and joints, work your abs/core, give you a good degree of flexibility, and put in a very healthy dose of cardio at the same time. All the while sharpening all your skills.
It depends on a few factors: your lifestyle, your eating habits, any other exercise you do, etc.
Three times per week if its your only exercise (minimum of two); two times per week if you’re doing something else or have a very strenuous construction job, etc. Or you may be just using this workout occasionally, for a change of pace. If its your only exercise though, really try to do it 3 times per week. Its a perfect amount
I recommend both sides. A lot of time when you’re throwing a technique, you wind up with the other foot forward- now you’re in the opposite stance whether you meant to be there or not! You should learn to feel comfortable there, not just look for a retreat back to your strong side. You may also injure something (like your jab hand), and be forced to keep it in the rear. You might as well learn to be comfortable with it by practicing it. Plus, it balances out your body a bit. One more benefit: it adds variety to your workout, and challenges your coordination and balance- all good things to keep you adapting and growing and having fun.
What Types of People Join This Program?
- Home exercisers who are looking for a long-term plan that won’t burn them out.
- Fighters who want a great game plan for training solo.
- People who love kickboxing but hate all the boring-ass bootcamp exercises.
- People who want to train using a much more realistic and opponent-focused game plan. (not cardio kickboxing)
- People who want to replace their group class with training at home.
What is it?
The Kickboxing Underground System is a “10-Round Heavy Bag Workout Routine” to build a strong athletic body, burn fat, and stay fit while developing fighting skills and building a varied arsenal of techniques.
For most people, the heavy bag is fun for the first several times they use it but their training routines end because of boredom, repetition, monotony, and the mental drain that goes with deciding what to do during every round. This is called decision fatigue and is a real drain on how much you’ll enjoy your workout.
When you constantly have to think “What should I throw next?”, you can’t exercise in the moment. That’s why group classes can be enjoyable: the instructor takes your mental workload away from you and puts it on him/herself. What you need now is a way to capture that same freedom of mind, but at home.
Here is the way the Workout System works:
You will rotate through 10 different workouts. Each workout is 10 Rounds long. (I recommend 3-minute rounds when training by yourself. If you are a trainer and are teaching the System to new trainees, then 5-minute rounds are appropriate to accommodate teaching time.)
You download a free timer on your phone or tablet and use it as a fight clock: when the bell sounds and the light turns green- you work. When it turns red- you rest.
What You Will Need:
- A Heavy Bag
- Hand Wraps
- Free Round Timer
- Knowledge of Kickboxing, Muay Thai, MMA Striking Techniques
(You will need to know how to execute punches, kicks, elbows, knees, etc. You don’t have to be good at them; the whole purpose of training is to practice and refine your skills.)
If you have these things, I am going to introduce you to the most powerful, fun, and effective workout system available on the planet.
Sure, I said “fun”, and to have fun while working out, you need to enter a “flow” state.
How to Have Flow in your Exercise Program
To have a successful, happy, consistent workout program you must have more than just the equipment… you need to have a plan.
Your plan needs to work for you long term. It needs to be much more than a list of things to do; it needs to make you happy. You become happy in exercise when you lose yourself in exercise. (Queue “Lose Yourself” by Eminem)
This is what psychologists call a flow state. Flow is when you are not distracted by outside thoughts, but are able to focus on an enjoyable task at hand. You lose track of time; you feel good, fulfilled.
The Kickboxing Underground system has been carefully designed to help you experience a flow state during exercise.
Being lost in a flow state is good for your mind, emotions, and nervous system. It gives your worries a break and reduces stress dramatically.
Distractions, however, are sure “flow killers”.
You can’t answer the phone, respond to texts, or anything else during the training. You must constantly bring your mind back to the present. You need to carve an hour out for yourself, your body, and your mental well-being. This is how you get recharged and rejuvenated. The anti-stress benefit achieved with this program is quite significant. And this will happen every single time you workout with our System. Yep, every. Single. Time.
So stay in the flow and enjoy your own personal “training camp”. Each session feels like you’re preparing for an upcoming fight.
In Practical Terms, Here’s How This Works:
You will print out all of the Workouts and put them in a Notebook. (This will now be called your “Workout Notebook”.)
Open your Workout Notebook to Workout #1:
The Workout sheet will guide you through all 10 Rounds of your training session.
First you’ll get your tunes cranking, wrap up your hands, get your water handy, and get your Round Timer set. (Have your gloves ready… you’ll need them from Rounds 5, 6, 7, 8, 9,10.)
You’ll be using a round timer to pace every round of the workout. This will take “time” completely off your mind and let you focus on technique, execution, and performance.
When the bell rings, you look at “Round #1” and it gives you your game plan for that particular round.
The first four rounds have been designed to slowly draw you into readiness for the Heavy Bag rounds. It makes is sooo easy to start your workout that you don’t need to be “in the mood” at all.
As long as you show up, the System will take good care of you. No more need for planning either before or during your workout. Done!
With the first 4 rounds, before you “hit the bag”, you’ll have gotten your flexibility covered and will be able to move all of your limbs in any direction without stiffness or catching. You will be mentally geared up for additional effort before you have to perform it. (You’ll be amazed how well this works. Trust me.)
These Next 6 Rounds:
Rounds 5-10 of every workout are on the heavy bag.
Fight the bag using the combination given:
Move around, keep in a good fighting stance, keep proper distance, respect the punching range, and keep fighting until the bell rings.
It’s a three-minute fight using one specific combination. (This is so much more enjoyable than having to think up something new a hundred times during a round. That drains all of your workout energy- which is now going into the performance instead of planning.)
When the bell rings and the light turns red, it’s “break time”. A real break time. Not pushups and burpees time. (Hooray! Right?)
Cease fighting, catch your breath, walk around, get water, and really try to relax before the Green bell rings and it’s “Go” time again!
Don’t sit down during this time. Pace around unless you’re stopping for water.
As soon as you hear the next bell to start the round, your guard goes up, you approach the Workout Sheet, and you read the game plan for the next round.
(That is all you have to do during this entire training System: wait for the green light /bell and then read the game plan for that Round. Your mind can finally relax. And this goes session after session, month after month, year after year. When you join the Kickboxing Underground, all your workout planning is done. For a lifetime. This System is perpetually renewable and you will love it! It does not become boring or repetitive. It’s a living, breathing system. Well, feels like it anyway….)
Ok, back to the workout…..
By the final bell and the end of Round 10, you’ll be exhausted, feel like a champion, have just gotten an amazing workout, and have a lot less stress.
All your energy is going into the workout instead of spinning around inside your head wondering what to throw or do next.
Until you’ve experienced this system, you will never fully understand just how liberating and energizing this is.
When you return for your next training session, it will be exactly the same format, only the combinations and techniques will be different.
There is a ton of variety. More than you’ll find anywhere else. Each workout has combinations with punches, knee techniques, push kicks, switch kicks, etc.
When I work out, I want to keep every session challenging and full of variety, as do you. Admittedly, you will be throwing a lot of right crosses and left hooks…. that’s just the nature of the fight game. Jabs too, and roundhouse kicks. Get used to ‘em, you’ll be throwing them a lot.
But there’s a ton of different techniques we’ll be using at various times during the workout program, so you get to at least practice a lot of different weapons to keep all your skills sharp and growing.
Besides a heavy load of basics, you’ll have spinning backfists and elbows, Superman punches, clinch fighting, you name it. Some things don’t get used a lot in life, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to practice them and become proficient with them. It adds a lot of spice to the fight and to your training.
Since the workouts rotate in succession, it will be a month or maybe two before you’ll be repeating that same workout.
This keeps it fresh and interesting. Even after several years the workouts don’t get boring.
Take boxing for example: boxing is the “sweet science” and it’s based off of a small number of punches. But it is interesting enough to last a lifetime. So when you add in the plethora of techniques that kickboxing, Muay Thai, and MMA give you, you have enough tools to keep things interesting for years and years. Certainly.
Your body is your instrument through which you express yourself.
And like a musician you don’t get bored playing the same instrument.
But you enjoy the challenge of striving towards perfection… all the while being able to express yourself more and more truly as your mastery over your instrument increases.
Self Expression is what Bruce Lee said martial arts were all about.
I have pared a complete exercise method, modality, and philosophy down to its bare essence. There is nothing that needs to be added, and there is nothing that you should take away. “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” – Leonardo Da Vinci
There is zero fluff at the Kickboxing Underground. Every action in the System was designed for a purpose.
Like a sculptor I chipped and chipped away at this System until there was nothing left that could be removed or changed.
The essence that remained is what I feel is the world’s strongest, most robust comprehensive workout system. Even a pro fighter could use this with complete satisfaction.
Before you buy, please note this System may not be right for you. And we do not offer a Refund Policy, so it’s important you choose wisely. You must know how to throw the techniques, because no instruction is given in them. Don’t just mindlessly hit the “Buy Now” button. Make sure this is for you.
This is suitable for the home trainee all the way up to professional level with no deviation. But this is not recommended for beginners. Perhaps after several months of kickboxing classes. You really need to know what the techniques are and how they might flow from one to another or you will have no idea how to do the combinations.
It is imperative that during your training session you shut out outside concerns for the entire training session: no phone ringer, text notifications, emails, social media, etc. You say you want to build discipline? Well, nothing tests discipline more than trying to keep the outside world away for one hour!
Are you ready to join us and begin training at home using this unique system?
Feel free to read around the rest of the site and get a good idea on whether or not this is the right training system for yourself. We are not trying to pressure or manipulate you into buying, so take the time to consider whether or not you’re really going to use the System. I want this to be one of the best things you’ve ever done for yourself. Believe me, it’s that good!
I look forward to having you training with me at the Kickboxing Underground!
