Turbo Jam

I received my "new" workout ( from ebay) in the post - Turbo Jam Cardio Party 3.

I've done this workout on Tuesday and Wednesday -so, today it had better be weights for me. I try to do one cardio and one AWT or two cardio and one weights day..

Anyway, CP3 is fun, fun! There is a great song in the first half of the workout - "Party, party people" - and I love the punches and shaking to this song. Some good upper body punches and combos make this a nice workout for arms etc as well as cardio.

The turbo is similar to one of the turbos in TJ Fatblaster so I find I am familiar with the routine and can up the intensity.

If you like kickboxing, if you like dance, if you like rap, hip hop, old school music - well, you'll love Turbo Jam.

Oh, and I forgot to add - I love the workout outfiuts in this workout. Chalene is wearing a really cute workout skirt - I want one! And there is a background exerciser who is 50 years old and she looks fit and hot. My inspiration - not that I am 50 but you know what I mean.

Here is a review of this 52 minute workout - party in a box!

Drawing a blank here, AWT? I tried googling it, but all the references were things like "Alternate Windows Toolkit" and "Asian Windsurfing Tour". :)

How much time do you spend exercising each day? You always sound like you give a healthy amount of time to your fitness routine, and you know so much different workouts and exercises. Have you always been into fitness?

Sorry - AWT - areobic weight training. Think the FIRM style of workouts.

I've been on and off into fitness but really got into it after a miscarriage and the subsequent finding of an hereditary blood clotting disorder in 2001. It became important for my health so no more on and off - only on! lol!

I am the member of a couple of fitness forums and read a lot on fitness, its sort of one of my hobbies. Other people sew or do crafts, I read about fitness!Pathetic, huh?
Most days I workout 1 hour. Really rushed days 30 or 40 minutes, the rare free weekend I might do 90 minutes. Mostly 1 hour is what I can fit in. But I love the way I feel after and often wish I could do more..Fitness internet friends do 90 mins or 2 hours daily - but I couldn't find the time and think it might be a bit of an obsession in those cases...Like never eating chocolate or carbs, too obsessive! lol!

Love chatting to you on this blog - did your friend get signed up yet??
