Not too long ago I posted about a new class that we had launched called Kung Fu Blitz. It’s our take on combining HIIT style training with Kung Fu in order to get maximum martial arts physical fitness with not too much of a time commitment.
Daniel and I spent many an evening figuring out the best way to put these classes together. Deciding the best times to hold the classes live in the school, and via Zoom. During one of these conversations we were enjoying a glass of mead (or two) I suggested we put this class to the test.
I wanted to commit to three times a week for 30 days to see just how great it really is. After a bit of figuring things out, we picked our start date. We took our weights and measured our arms, waists and chests. We thought of doing all the typical measurements, but we figured most people are really only wowed by arms and bellies… lol.
For our Blitz challenge, we had to do three blitz classes a week. We had to really work in each of those classes. I chose to really dial in on my low carb eating and Daniel chose to keep on with his normal healthy eating.
I really went back and forth with putting our before and after measurements on here and ultimately decided not to because that’s a huge struggle for me. I’ll tackle self esteem in another blog post.
What did happen over that 30 days was this…
Daniel lost 7 pounds, 1.5 inches from his waist and 0.5 inches from his chest. His arms stayed the same.
I lost 20 pounds, 2 inches from my waist, 1.75 inches from my chest and my arms stayed the same. Despite our arms staying the same “size” they really toned up.
Before you get too excited about my weight loss, Daniel’s results are the more realistic results. He only changed his life by including these 3 classes.
I made an intensional overhaul of everything. I chose to incorporate these workouts into a larger challenge for myself. I had good long talk with myself and chose to make some changes with my nutrition, and added more workouts to my days. I am over half way done with the first leg of my challenge. I will share with you all the inns and outs of what I have been up to when I complete it. I just wanted to let you know that my results may not be typical for the Blitz only challenge.
Committing to 30 days of 3 classes a week really gave us good results. We worked hard, and it proved to us that this class helped us.
So if you are on the fence.. come try a class. We have been having a riot with it, and it’s improving us greatly. The class times are below.
