EXERCISE

Exercise is the primary focus of Turn Up Your Fat Burn!. For those that haven’t worked out in a while, there is a transition week that you can participate in called an On-Board week. Each week your workout changes to give you the best results. The book explains the process of using metabolic strength workouts s that you can work several muscle groups at the same time. This also helps you burn more calories and allows for burning calories after the workout is completed. Aside from the metabolic strength workouts, you will also be doing some cardio workouts. You can easily combine the two if you are short on time. The type of cardio you do is completely up to you. The book states that cardio is critical for weight loss and better health. You just need to complete 30 minutes per day of cardio for significant results. For the on-board cardio workout, you need to commit to two or three 20 to 30 minute cardio workouts that week. Below is the workout requirement for the first week of the program:

  • Do two metabolic strength circuit workouts of about 30 to 40 minutes each
  • Do two fat burning cardio interval workouts of about 30 minutes each
  • Optional: Do one moderate pace cardio workout of about 30 minutes
