This is my review of Ilaria Montagnani's Powerstrike Vol. 7 Kickboxing, which was released in December, 2012. I have been an avid fan of Ilari's, and her authenticity and true professionalism are incomparable. The first time I tried this DVD, I found the choreography very hard to follow. After practicing and mastering the divided pieces of the video, I finally made it all the way through without stopping and with relative ease! The feeling of accomplishment was so great, which is why I have become hooked on kickboxing, especially Ilaria's Powerstrike series. The workout is very tough without doubt, but for those of you who find other kickboxing videos out there too easy or unchallenging, this will definitely get you out of your comfort zone, but with her accurate cueing and reminders, I'm sure that soon enough, you will be having a great time working out to this video.

I've introduced step-boxing DVDs by Kelly Coffey-Meyer before, but this DVD is full-on kickboxing (with no step) with two workouts with 14-minute tutorial and 14-minute ab exercise. While Ilaria's workout starts with kicks only, then punches only and finishes with combinations, Kelly's style is to do a 2-minute conbination and move on to another, so you will be pressed to learn combinations quickly. To that end, it's highly recommended to do the tutorial before starting the main workouts. Kelly's forms are superb, but I wasn't too impressed with the back exercisers. On the other hand, Ilaria does her videos with her Powerstrike instructors, so their forms are really great as well.

Kelly does lots of ducks and hitch kicks, which seemed at first really daunting, but once you get the hang of the move, it's actually a lot of fun! Throughout the video, I worked hard my abs and glutes, so they were fatigued afterwards.

Different instructors have different styles of teaching kickboxing, which makes it all the more fun! I would recommend Ilaria for beginners (or anybody who wants to perfect their forms) since she has authentic forms and gives constanct corrective instructions, but once you have mastered basic moves, Kelly's workouts would be great for non-stop kickboxing fun!

Powerstrike 6 is very similar to the first two DVDsPowerstrike 4 & 5 in its format. It starts with a warm-up which consistes with shoulder rolls, punches, stretches and push-ups, moves on to the punch sequence, then kick sequence, followed by choreographed combinations, and finishes with Karate punches and blocks. The punch sequence in this video is more complicated, which requires memoraization and a little extra time to practice to perfect it. Back kicks are newly introduced, so are little hops to change directions, which keeps heart rate elevated. Ilaria exercises with her Powerstrike instructors, who own Powerstrike certificates to teach it. Ilaria is definitely the best kickboxing instructor I've seen so far. Another great video!

This is the second of Ilaria Montagnani's Powerstrike series. The entire workout is about 50 minutes, a little shorter than Powerstrike 4. The format and instensity seem about the same, but with punch sequences little more complicated. The most striking about Powerstrike videos is the instructor, Ilaria Montagnani. She is very professional and pleasant, and she gives super precise cues and instructions. I very much appreciate her constant reminders such as arms en guard position, elbows tight, shoulders relaxed, etc. The video setting is a real gym studio with windows, and music is with strong beats but a little monotonous. As with other fitness videos, I would recommend watching it in entirety before trying it out, and also it will help a great deal to study and memorize the movements. I totally enjoyed this one, and the time really flew by, so I wish the video was longer, and Ilaria's near-perfect physique is always a great inspiration!
