I have many Turbo Jam DVDs, lead by the ever-energetic Chalene Johnson, but the one I find myself turning to most often is Fat Blaster.
As Johnson says during the warm-up, it’s a DVD to turn to when you’re short on time but still want to burn some serious calories with some serious cardio.
The workout is comprised of the Turbo sections from some of her other workouts, put together end-to-end in one 30-minute session.
The Turbos are very high-energy blasts of exercise that are about a minute-and-a-half long.
Johnson takes four Turbo sections, then does each twice: The first time with less energy, and the second time with lots of energy.
This is a method that imitates a way athletes train, using anaerobic drills.
These drills are fun, though, with funky punches and dance moves that are the hallmark of all Turbo Jam workouts.
The 30 minutes positively fly by.
If you don’t want to keep going low and high in your energy output, the workout can be done at a steady pace, and one person demonstrates this.
As with all Turbo Jam workouts, this one starts with a great warm-up that leaves the muscles good and ready to work.
Turbo Jam DVDs are produced by Beachbody.
