    This might seem like a REALLY dumb question, but I want to know... my new gym has opened and I have become a gym rat... I have also been taking the one hour kickboxing class, and was wondering if it is safe to kickbox 3 times a week, or maybe even 4? This class is so great, and I sweat my butt off, so, I am just curious!!! I am plus size 16, but I keep up really well, and am proud of myself. But I want to be safe!!

      I think as long as you feel good doing it and you aren't pushing yourself beyond your limits you'll be fine! I love kickboxing classes and have taken many throughout the years! Keep it up!

        Awesome and good for you! I did competitive kickboxing 2 times a week and think it is the best work out ever! With any workout, I think as long as you are feeling good about what you are doing then keep doing it as often as you like, especially if you are enjoying it so much.

          Yeap, totally safe. I used to do kickboxing 3 times a week and I was in the best shape of my life. My only advise, if you get pregnant.. stop. it's too intense for a pregnancy.

            It'll only be dangerous for your FI when he hacks you off and you can roundhouse kick him lmao

            It's fine as long as you know your limits and as long as you do fill your boots

              3 or 4 times a week is a great workout. I dont like to run, so i do kickboxing for my cardio 5x a week just make sure you are drinking lots of water even if you dont think you need it drink more. I have seen people pass out, but that was bc they werent drinking water. I think you will be very happy with the workout that you are going to get from kickboxing 3+ days a week. Keep it up!!!

                Thanks so much ladies! Yeah, I HATE running... but I love the kickboxing... and I was nervous to do it at first, I didn't think I would be able to, but boy was I wrong!

                  Is it contact kickboxing or cardiokickboxing? I used to do 2x/week cardio and 1x/week sparring just fine. Of course, you may not want to spar if the wedding is soon because accidents do happen :) If you are doing cardio, just listen to your body. It is an amazing workout physically and mentally and so why not do it as often as you can tolerate!

                    I do kickboxing (non-contact) and karate (full contact sparring) and I try to go at least 5-6 times a week, depending on my schedule. There's a few days out of the week I go to boxing in the morning and karate in the afternoon. Just listen to your body.
