front kicks

obliques intercostals
Front kicks are commonly used in martial arts, such as Taekwondo, and are also a great cardio exercise. This exercise primarily targets the quadriceps and abs, while also working the hip flexors and glutes. To perform a front kick, start with your feet hip-width apart and bend your right knee, bringing your heel up towards your glutes. Then quickly extend your right leg out in front of you, kicking with the ball of your foot. As you perform the kick, engage your core to maintain balance and control. Return your right foot back to the starting position and repeat on the left side. Front kicks can be done as part of a warm-up or as a standalone exercise in a cardio or martial arts workout. To add intensity, try incorporating a hop or jump between each kick or holding a weighted object, such as a medicine ball or dumbbell, as you perform the exercise.
