Deluxe TurboFire Workouts

So as I continue my TurboFire workouts I’m now into the “deluxe” workouts.
This consists of:
Fire 60 with 4 “Fire Drills”
HIIT 30 Class
Upper 20 Class
Lower 20 Class
Abs 10 Class and
Stretch 10 Class

The Stretch 10 is the same that’s in the “regular” set of workouts however the others of course have their own flavor to them.

The biggest difference between these deluxe workouts is the workout length.
I don’t why “deluxe” should mean “longer” workouts, but needless to say I modify to keep the workouts to my usual 25-45 min range.
Most of the workouts are 2 combined so during the “cardio” month I change off to do a resistance one day and cardio the next.
Now that I’m into the HIIT month I do the same but do the HIIT one day and resistance the next.

The Fire 60 workout, when scheduled for it I change it up with one of the others but the others for the most part I stick with the schedule.

The Abs 10 is an awesome workout and doing this properly will give you a great ab workout in a short amount of time.
I continue to enjoy the way Chalene uses the bands for resistance workouts in the upper and lower workouts.
Doing the workouts on the road make these great workouts to incorporate for people that have limited time and space and give great results.

The HIIT 30 workout has 11 drills and really gives you a “run for the money”. You’ll feel this workout throughout the day and maybe into the next muscle wise if you put in the effort.

I’m still enjoying the workouts, even with the time modifications that I have to make in order to fit them in.
I started using the Recovery Formula with the HIIT 30 workout, but feel pretty good after the others right now not using it.

The Shakeology regiman has continued and having the protein bars while on the road.

We’ll see how the next few weeks unfold with the workouts but till the next review as always

Turbo Fire Review, 90 days complete : )

Well 90 days of Turbo-Fire is complete and it was a great ride.
Overall I enjoyed the workouts though some were a little longer then I would’ve liked, but still did all of them in the the correct order for the most part.
The reason I say that is I changed up two of the 55 workouts for the 45 workouts and really didn’t do much of the stretch workouts with the exception of the last week.

Stretch 40 was scheduled twice and because my hip was bothering me I decided to do them. Though it did help with the exception of the meditation part I still don’t like some of the Yoga poses.
They are mainly geared for people that can tie themselves up in knots, and for someone not that flexible they are painful, not comfortable and not “user” friendly.

The HIIT workouts were great, and had at times did some modifications because of all the jumping.
I still kept the intensity high though and so my breathing was pretty hard after the “fire drills”.
The music was great and put to the workouts nicely though there are a few places that the editing throws you for a second.
Some of the workouts have a “new to class” section, which is nice to get an idea of the moves in the workout before actually doing the workout, and also if you do the “new to class” you will get a good workout with that too.

The Core, Sculpt, and Tone workouts were also great workouts. As mentioned in previous blogs I love the way Chalene used the bands.
She used them in ways that the other trainers haven’t and the resistance that you get from using them is great.
I did have stronger bands then what came with the program, because I felt at times I needed the extra resistance and the bands that the ones that came with the program I didn’t feel were enough.

If I continue with the schedule and with the deluxe workouts, there are five additional new workouts.
Fire 60 which includes 4 Fire Drills
HIIT 30 which has 11 drills in 60 sec intervals
Upper 20 using the resistance ands
Lower 20 using the lower body band
Abs 10 just using a mat, and though short I’m sure it’s tough from doing her past workouts

Turbo-Fire also includes a 20 week schedule, which next month is Advanced Cardio consisting of no HIIT workouts though there are Fire Drills and week 17-20 is HIIT 3.
The problem I have with doing the advance cardio month is the length of workout for the most part are 55-65 min. and with my time constraints I have on the road, which is where I do most of my workouts, make getting the workouts in challenging to say the least.

There also is a Hybrid workout schedule with Chalene Extreme which would add more resistance to the workout regimen but doesn’t depending on the workout may or may not save some time.

Though the deluxe kit came with P90X Results and Recovery Formula I really didn’t feel the need for it too much, at least in the first 90 days.
I do like the daily journal though that came with it to help keep track of eating.
I kept to drinking my Shakeology each day and sometimes twice if I was feeling tired instead of eating a snack.
Also on the road I had some P90X protein bars along to have as a snack in stead of the airport food.

Overall Turbo-Fire is a great workout and I really enjoyed it, and will end up doing the advanced workouts, I just have to figure if I will do it as scheduled or vary it a bit from the calendar.

If you want a great workout that will challenge you, this is one of the better ones.

Turbo Fire Review, Week 10

Well as I continue with my “on the road” workouts, I’m up to week 10 of TurboFire and another week complete.
This week there was a new workout in the mix, HIIT 25 which was quite a challenge.
Even though I’ve done the HIIT 15 and 20, the HIIT 25 was quite a challenge and it was fun :)
I’m still really enjoying the workouts and as mentioned in the past blogs I also really enjoy the Tone and Sculpt workouts because of the resistance band work in them.

Shakeology as before has remained a regular part of my daily diet and in occasions have had 2 shakes when I felt I was “dragging” a little and needed an energy boost.
Shakeology usually helped out in giving me some additional energy for another 2-3 hours.

As I enter into the last 2 weeks to make it to 90 days, the last week is another “Recovery Week”.
There is calendar that has additional workouts that continue for another few months, combining Chalean Extreme and TurboFire, but I’m not sure if I will continue with the hybrid workout yet.

So the next review will cover the last 2 weeks of the workouts to the 90 day mark and we’ll see what final results emerge.

Till the next review,
