I like switch kicks after right punches... or rear punches, I suppose.  I shouldn't assume that you're all also right-handed... that would be ego-centric.

The Workout

Round 1

60 Seconds - Bounce around in front of your target and throw switch kicks with your front leg.

60 Seconds Rest

You have to earn it first!

The concept of 'Shin Conditioning' is one that is near and dear to the hearts of people who have already 'earned' their roundhouses.

This is what determines if you get to throw this kick with reckless abandon... or for just one 'shielded kick'... at which point it becomes useless to you.
