I did another one of these Fitness Blender calorie burn comparisons a while ago now. It was interesting to see my number compared to the range that they give on their website.
I decided to do another comparison post just for fun. Read on if interested!
Which workout I chose and why
I chose Fitness Blender’s 43 minute Upper Body and Cardio Kickboxing Workout for this comparison. I had actually planned on doing one on a lower body workout as I had already done a comparison on an upper body workout. This video really caught my eye though.
I used to like kickboxing workouts back in my college days as it provided a good challenge for me cardiovascular wise and I thought it was fun. Combining those moves with upper body weightlifting seemed like it would make for a great workout.
About this workout
This upper body workout is 43 minutes long and is rated 4/5 on the difficulty scale. It contains a warm-up and a cool down with stretching.
The workout has three groups of kickboxing and three groups of strength training. First a kickboxing group is done and then a strength training group is done.
All the groups contain two different moves that are each repeated twice. Each move is done for 45 seconds on and 15 seconds off. That amounts to each exercise group taking four minutes.
After all of the exercise groups are done, there is a burnout round that includes four different exercises. They are each done for 45 seconds on and then 15 seconds off.
The calorie burn estimate range is 265-468.
My experience and calorie burn
As with all of Fitness Blender’s weight training workouts, I try to make some modifications to make them a little more challenging for me. For this one, all I did was make sure that I was choosing weights that were heavy enough to hit my muscles well.
I put my all into the kickboxing moves as I was in the mood for a tough workout at the time. My physical and mental energy levels were up!
I did not peek at my fitness watch at all during the workout to save the surprise for after I was done with it. Upon completion of it, I saw that I had burned 300 calories. This fell in the calorie burn estimate range that they gave.
Although I burned more calories with this one than the last one I did a post on, it was not my favorite workout in the world. The way it was arranged and the kickboxing elements just did not do it for me. I do recommend it to others though.
Another interesting comparison!
I officially really like doing these posts. It breaks up the monotony of my workout regimens that I do for around six weeks.
My next calorie burn comparison will be in a couple of weeks so if you like these posts, stay tuned!
