It wasn’t ChaLean Extreme, but it was Turbo Jam Body Sculpt. Feeling a bit of sore muscle syndrome from yesterdays work out and yard work I decided that because I had more yard work to do, fatiguing my muscles further would cause more strain.
Turbo Jam’s Body Sculpt is a great work out, lots of squats, lunges and even some ab work with some light weights = calories burned. I can’t recommend highly enough if you are new to cardio exercises get your self a heart rate monitor with a chest strap so that you will know exactly how many calories you are burning. These monitors will let you know exactly when you need to increase intensity or when to decrease intensity. After some time you will be able to figure it out for yourself and won’t need to depend on the monitor so much, in the meantime it is a great way to learn and understand what your heart rate is doing and to keep track of how many calories you are burning.
You can pick up a decent monitor at Canadian Tire for around $100.00, I believe you will not regret the purchase. Building muscle will increase your metabolic rate and that means you can eat more food (healthy that is) and I am all about eating food!
