Turbo Fire - Melting Nine Times More Fat

Submitted by on February 3, 2011 – 1:15 am2 Comments

Turbo fire is an effective, novel cardio-conditioning program devised by fitness pacesetter Chalene Johnson. It is proudly claimed that Turbo Fire could assist you get trimmer by engaging in exercises which can melt nine folds more fats as compared to the usual cardio workouts. The twelve workout classes are bound to get those sweat glands go into a tizzy with over twenty peppy, foot-tapping remix tunes that are bound to perk up your moves & make you strive harder and longer. Johnson even conducts classes in S. California which are quite the rage. There she offers an illustrative breakdown on the appropriate way of doing the moves.

The Turbo Fire classes entail HIIT (high intensity interval training) or fire drills which would be pushing the person to his/her maximum limit for nearly a minute-long burst periods with swift recuperation phases. Research findings have shown that HIIT is capable of igniting body metabolism and enables the body into burning additional calories for nearly forty-eight hours post-workout which is termed as the AfterBurn Effect.

Guess what – you would be working out for lesser than ½ the time one usually puts in to do usual cardio – but burning up nearly nine folds more fats.

HIIT training is done is diverse ways. In the first approach, one could either be doing full-on sprints where one surpasses the max oxygen level one could take up while exercising or VO2 max - coalesced with ample recuperation times or one could perform sprints slightly lesser than one’s VO2 max with ample recuperation. The foremost choice would be truly pushing our bodies to the hilt & eliciting peak VO2 max & EPOC (exercise post-exercise oxygen consumption). In the 2nd approach, body would be trained for performing at peak intensity for a somewhat lengthier span of time whilst lesser recovery time is taken.

In the initial choice, warming up at an agreeable intensity for five minutes and then putting in your max efforts for close to thirty seconds ensued by two minutes of recovering. One could do walking during the recuperation period or one could simply do light jogging based on how fit one currently is. In most likelihood one would be exerting so much that walks would be the only thing doable during recuperative time. Performing six to ten reps & conclude with cooling down.

In the 2nd choice, the analogous warming up must be done & then sprinting at around eighty percent of max intensity for forty-five seconds to over a minute. Ensue it with close to two minutes recuperation phase. One might discover that one’s recuperation times are briefer as one isn’t running with as much intensity as in the foremost choice. Five to eight reps are to be done and followed by cooling down phase.

So, forego the thought of having to rush to the gym for getting the best spots in classes. When you have Turbo Fire, classes commence when one pushes ‘Play’.

    Turbo Fire uses the (HIIT) “High Intensity Interval Training”, which is also known as Fire Drills, that can drive one to the max of her ability for bursts up to 1-minute long. These quick but intense exercises jump-start the metabolism, giving the body an ability to burn those extra calories that embarrass you, for up to 48 hours even after the workout is completed.

    What I like best about the Turbo Fire Training is that it is a musical group fun activity. Though different from aerobics, yet they have a same base. You don’t feel at all as if you are working out. It is like you get to dance in a group, just in an orderly manner and for some cause. Waiting for my sessions to start again. Amazing feeling!
