Tae Bo is an effective cardiovascular exercise that can help aid weight loss. In an hour long Tae Bo session, a person can burn 500 to 800 calories. However, weight loss is the result of burning more calories than are consumed. The program should be implemented regularly for desirable results.
Tae Bo exercise entails kicking, jumping and punching to increase heart rate and engage the cardiovascular system. This activity expends caloric energy and usually leads to weight loss. To lose one to two pounds per week with Tae Bo, reduce calorie consumption, in addition to practicing Tae Bo. One way to do this is by by eliminating empty calorie foods, such as dessert and soda.
In comparison with other cardiovascular workouts, Tae Bo is a faster way to lose weight because it entails fast movements that burn more calories than most exercise. Normal aerobic exercise, like running, typically burns about 300 calories - 200 calories less than a Tae Bo session would burn.
Videos, classes and DVDs of Tae Bo training sessions are good for first-time learners and advanced Tae Bo practitioners. In addition to aiding weight loss, Tae Bo increases flexibility, balance and coordination. Like most exercise, it is also known to boost confidence, stamina and mental clarity.
