Abstract

IN CONJUNCTION WITH SPORT-SPECIFIC SKILLS DEVELOPMENT, SUFFICIENT NUTRITION, REST, AND PSYCHOLOGICAL READINESS, A KICKBOXER'S SUCCESS IS CONTINGENT UPON HIS OR HER LEVEL OF CONDITIONING. ON THE BASIS OF THE METABOLIC DEMANDS OF COMPETITIVE KICKBOXING, TRAINING SHOULD TAX BOTH THE ANAEROBIC AND AEROBIC SYSTEMS EXTENSIVELY. IN TANDEM WITH PROPER CONDITIONING, INJURY MAY BE PREVENTED THROUGH PREHABILITATIVE EXERCISES AND ADHERENCE TO SAFETY MEASURES.
