Many of us carry extra weight along our midsections. Did you know that kickboxing is one of the best exercises to burn fat? According to research, the cardio-conditioning involved in kickboxing is a highly effective way to burn stubborn belly fat. One study, published in the American Journal of Physiology found that aerobic exercise reduces belly fat better than resistance training because it burns 67 percent more calories, on average.
