Turbo Fire Lower 20 workout review: “mah legs, they hurt!!!”

November 14, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

If you’re like me and don’t have tons to time to get long workouts in every day and are looking for a good lower body workout, this is for you. All you need are the following:

  • Resistance lower body band
  • Mat
  • and yes, the Turbo Fire workouts

Lower body resistance band; Looks innocent, but it’s so not

 

So if you’ve never seen one of these bands, I included a picture above. Looks pretty benign, doesn’t it? Tie each end into a knot (make sure it doesn’t loosen). Then, put it around your ankles and try to lift one leg to the side, then the other alternately. You should start to feel the burn very quick.

The workout uses the move I described above, along with others to firm and strengthen the glutes, quads, and hamstrings. In Turbo Fire (along with martial arts), it’s a good idea to strengthen these muscles in order to get more range of motion when doing kicks, knee strikes, roundhouses, and other types of moves involving the lower body. Plus, firming the booty isn’t a bad thing either, is it 😉

What I like about the resistance band is it’s very inexpensive and portable. What I also like about it is it is so effective in building the strength and muscle I need to get through my workouts.

On the DVD, the Turbo Fire  Upper 20 workout plus a 10 minute stretch is also included. That’s all over strength training without having to leave home or buy really expensive equipment. Gotta love that.
