You are welcome. Don't put the reps and it will let you put the exercise in without the weight.

I've backslidden... I reached my goal and was now maintaining, but now I need to lose 10 pounds and firm up.

Thanks for posting all of the reps and sets for the workouts! What a help! I need to enter in AJ for last night, but I'll have to set up the workout in my favorites. One question though, what do you put for the weight? AJ doesn't use weights and it won't let you put in 0...

Ok, off to do Cardio Party 1 now!

Thanks so much for posting the reps and sets for Turbo Sculpt and Ab Jam (and the others but for now, these are what I'm scheduled to do for the next few weeks).
I've also printed out the kick start diet. This should help me to track my calories better.

When i was getting ready to begin Turbo Jam again, and wanted to use wowy to track my progress, I let Beachbody set up my calandar or workouts. There were a few changes made since the original beginner rotation was created. In weeks 2 and 3, Turbo Sculpt replaced Ab Jam on days 2 and 4 of week 2 and days 1 and 5 on week 3. So those days have 20 Minute Workout and Turbo Sculpt instead of 20 Minute Workout and Ab Jam.

I'm Chloe and I am new to Spark. I have been doing Turbo Jam for a month now and have lost 10 lbs. emoticon I was so excited to see that there was a group that loved Turbo Jam as much as I do. I'm 5'11 and started my weight loss journey after Christmas this year at 196lbs. I am now down to 180, with a goal of being at 160 by August 08.

You can always do more, but if you do, bump up your calories when you do (say by 150 calories per 1/2 hour). There are some ladies on our team that workout 3 hours a day! :)

Hi, I have another question for all of you that probably know more about losing weight than me.

I have the TJ Fat Blaster video. I really work up a sweat and get tired. But I wondered if 30 minutes is enough for one day. Should I do it twice (morning&afternoon) or do something like the KP&J or Cardio Party1 with it. I want to do enough but not so much that I'll put my body into starvation mode.

Thank you. I'll start being more precise about putting in everything I eat. And make it open. I try and eat healthy (not this morning). So I'll make it open too. Thanks again.

It may not be enough, but it also may. Gotta love answers like that, huh? Try staying at that range, and seeing how it goes. If you stall out and don't lose 2 weeks in a row, then add more calories. Also, judge by your energy level (not your hunger pains or cravings). If you have plenty of energy then you are probably doing fine, but if you feel tired and worn out then you probably need to increase it a bit.

If you start using the nutrition tracker (or sharing it), I can start looking at what you are eating and give you pointers.

Calorie Intake Question

I have been trying my best to keep up with my calorie intake. I try to stay in the 1300 &1500 range. I exercise at 5 to 6 times a week, doing Turbo Jam, KP&J and Fat Blaster and some type of ab exercises. Am I eatting enough?

It all confuses me, you want to eat less to lose, but if you eat to little you won't lose. Then you have to factor in exercise. Help please...

Turbo Sculpt is there, that is the only other strength training video in Maximum Results. If you are referring to Cardio Party or 20 MWO you enter those as cardio.

Hello everyone,

Thanks so much for posting the reps for the workouts. Is there anyway to get the ones for the Maximum Results Package? I see the one for Ab Jam but does anyone have any more? Thanks so much!

Yeah, you are probably too low. You could probably go as high as 1500-1700 a day and lose, and have more energy. But look for healthy ways of increasing those calories! More fruits & veggies, lean proteins, etc... :)

I'd say your calorie range was probably too low. No monthly is another possible sign of too little calories. How much exercise are you doing? Consider going into the doctor and print out a week or two of tracker info to take with you. He/she should be knowlegable enough to tell you if you aren't eating enough. In the meantime though, consider eating what your new range is. I found that at times when I did that I actually started losing more weight and gained energy.

What you describe sounds like being in starvation mode, but it could be something else too so go to the doctor! If you are short on cash and not ready to see the doctor, start off by increasing the calories and see if it helps.

I think if you are not having a monthly cycle something is wrong. You should make an appointment with a dr. Other than that, sometimes your body just gets used to what you are doing, if you are eating the same calories every day and doing th same workouts you might have to mix it up a bit. CHOCOLATE seems to be pretty successful with calorie cycling, she stays at the low end of her calorie range for a couple of days, then the high end, then in the middle etc. It makes sense. But, I would definitely see a dr. about your cycle, there might be something more going on.

I need help, please!

This is week five of zero weight loss. I first just thought I was at a plateau but I am starting to wonder? Yesterday I completed my first Turbo Sculpt and went to enter in all the set/reps and took it off auto spark generated. I was successful at getting it in and saving it as a workout. Proceeded to nutrition to add dinner and my calorie intake goal range had be extremely uped. I contacted sparkpeople to see if they changed my settings and they emailed back that they go by weight age height etc.

So now I am wondering if maybe they were uped for excercise minutes. I had calorie range set at 1300-1400. Is that too low? Could that be the reason I am not losing, have no energy and no monthly? Do I have to reset my sparkpeople to find out what my intake should be?

Any help with this would be great, I am really stress about this.

The chest strap kind are more accurate (and easier to use). The kind that has the alarm can help you to either work harder or slow it down when you're pushing it too hard. :)

Oh actually i think the one the others were telling me about was a watch type thing. It didn't have a chest strap, but was supposed to tell calories burned and what your heart rate was and there was another higher priced one (around 80 if I remember right) that had an alarm if you were not working out in your heart rate zone, and another if you went higher than it. Are those good investments? Or should I look for the chest strap kind?

Kate, just make sure it is one with a chest strap and not one that you have to stop and put your fingers on. Also make sure it tells you the calories you burned. Otherwise, it might not be that great of an investment.

Ok Shani, thanks! :) I'll run to WalMart today and see if I can't pick up a heart monitor. I know some people got one from there for like 35, and the cheapest one at target was 50! We don't have lots of extra, so gotta cut where I can. :) But since I LOVE seeing all those calories being used up, I think it'll definitely be a good investment.

SparkPeople says to consider the calories you burn when you sculpt a bonus, but I don't know how to consider circuit training (which is what most of the video strength workouts are) since the calorie burn is higher. For Turbo Sculpt, if I had no heart rate monitor, I would not enter it as cardio. You don't burn as much as you'd want. Because I have a HRM I do enter the calories... maybe 175?

I entered some of the TJ Turbo Sculpt that I just did today, but it doesn't change how many calories I burned (I also did 2o mins on the gazelle). How do I know how many I burned? Do I have to enter the Sculpt not only as a strength training but as cardio too? I usually enter the CP1 or the 20 mins workout as cardio. Didn't think the sculpt didn't real work under cardio heading, but I want to now every little calorie I'm burning. lol

You can save the workouts so that once done, you only have to select the workout name and then it enters every exercise for you. Very sweet... but you have to have it so that you manually enter the strength program rather than have SP do it for you.

I have my strength as Spark generated as well, and don't even enter Turbo Sculpt or Ab Jam in my exercise tracker because it's too much of a headache to enter every time I do it.

I want to point out that you can't do this if you have your settings as SP Generated strength training. I have been trying to figure out how to do this for months and finally figured that out. If you have it set for SP Generated you have to add each one as a separate exercise, not as a workout.

This is such a relief to figure it out, I was feeling so stupid!

Look at the strength tracking more carefully. There are some tabs in teh window that pops up when you choose add strength that enables to you create workouts. Once you create the workout, you can choose that workout again and again without typing everything in again!

Sorry... it happened to me at first too!

Are we supposed to record all of this info every time we do the strength training? Cuz I put in all this info the other day under my MWF strength training and it didnt save for every other day...just added it to that day.

In an effort to get you information as quickly as possible, we've come up with a list of answers to frequently asked questions.

* What is Turbo Jam?
Turbo Jam is a series of workouts developed by Chalene Johnson and distributed by Beachbody. She uses elements from kickboxing, Capoeira, martial arts, and dance and mixes it with great music to make a workout program that is fun and easy to stick with.

* Where can I buy Turbo Jam workouts?
www.beachbody.com and www.qvc.com are both authorized distributors.

* How often should I work out?
That is up to you but as often as you can! The more you do, the better your cardiovascular health, muscle strengthening and the greater the calories you burn each week. Still, you need to listen to your body and do the workouts at the intensity you can handle. It is good to give your muscles a break especially after doing some sculpting (weight lifting). They need time to repair themselves and you want to give them time to do that. Do strength training every other day or at least two times a week.

* What should my calorie level be when I'm using Turbo Jam?
Basically you need to add back calories so that you net out at no less than 1200 calories if you are trying to lose weight. (Calories eaten - calories burned must be greater than 1200 calories). Otherwise your body might think that you are starving yourself and alter your base metabolism. SparkPeople's goal calculator is great at figuring this out for you. Just make sure that you are adequately reflecting the amount of calories you're burning when you enter your cardio.

* How can I know how many calories I'm burning?
SparkPeople's fitness tracker has an entry for kickboxing that comes pretty close to what you are probably burning during any of the cardio workouts. The way to be sure of how many calories you are burning is to use a heart rate monitor.

* So, how do I find a good heart rate monitor?
You want one with a chest strap and a wrist band. The chest strap is the best way to make sure you get a good measure of your heart rate. The monitor should take your height, weight and gender into account and should calculate your calories for you. The more you pay for them, generally the more they do, but a fairly basic model that covers these things should work fine for Turbo Jam. Several of us like the Polar F4 model (and some who run like the F6), but there are many makes and models out there.

* Is there something I can do to maximize my results with Turbo Jam?
