Jorge, thanks so much for making this video, and Mark, thanks for hosting it here 🙂 It didn’t occur to me to do heavy bag work for the “move frequently at a slow pace” part. For some reason I just automatically associated it with walking (makes sense), but failed to consider any other kind of low-intensity cardio (doesn’t make sense!). I used to be very into martial arts, and practiced it for a number of years. It’s been a while.

Light heavy bag work and shadow boxing is great for the “move frequently at a slow pace” component of PBF. I also like to use the bag for the “sprint once in a while” component. Once a week I go ‘all out’ a couple of rounds. It gets the job done and it’s a lot of fun.

I’m glad you liked the video, I was trying to make it as informative as possible. Thanks!

hmmm…. I always thought on box jumps that you came to a full stand to incorporate the hips and core. Is the simple jump just a less intense variation?

Not sure. I’ll have to look this up. Thanks for pointing this out, though.

That was awesome! Hubby and I are going primal and this was good to see as far as fitness goes because while I like to work out I don’t like doing the same repetitive things over and over. Thanks a lot and congrats to you on your weight loss success! Well done and keep up the great work!
