The Side Kick (or Roundhouse Kick) - Eights & Weights Video

Let's continue our exercise videos with more lower body stuff. This week, we have the roundhouse kick (aka the side kick). I like kicks because they involve both power and repetitive motion, allowing your body to burn calories and build muscles at the same time. And we all know I love my lower body exercises.

  • Bend into a high squat with both feet parallel to each other and hip wide.
  • Rotate your left foot to lift off the floor and come forward while you maintain a bend in your knee.
  • Extend your lower left leg with some power like you are kicking something on your right side (not your front).
  • If there was someone standing in front of you, you would be kicking their left arm with your left shin.

Confusing? Watch the video! Made just for you :)

Cheers Eights & Weights!
