Turbo Fire – Chalene Johnson’s new extreme workout

Turbo Fire – Chalene Johnson’s new extreme workout will build upon the incredible success of her Turbo Jam program and kick things up to the next level. Out now, it’s being billed as being as tough a DVD Workout as INSANITY, and featuring a potent combination of intense kickboxing cardio with High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). Turbo Jam took the world by storm, and has become an incredibly popular program, drawing packed crowds at gyms where instructors are trained and licensed to teach it. Where Turbo Jam leaves off, Turbo Fire kicks in, and is a program for the seasoned grads of Turbo Jam who are ready to really bring on the burn!

What’s really exciting and intense about the Turbo Fire workout is the inclusion of HIIT workouts. These are an extreme form of interval training, and when performed for a short duration (say under two months), can bring startling results. A HIIT workout is basically a set of repeated bouts of short duration and maximum intensity workouts. So think sprinting as hard as you can for twenty seconds, resting for twenty seconds, and then sprinting as hard as you can again for another twenty. Do that for four or five minutes, and you’ve just performed a HIIT workout.

Sound easy? Try it. You’ll be gasping like a fish and feeling you’re about to have a heart attack by the end of it! The best part about HIIT is that it ignites a post-workout fat burning phenomenon known as the Afterburn Effect, which allows you to continue burning fat for a full 24 to 48 hours after your workout.
