Big social event coming up. Enter Turbo Fire Workout. And you need to know how to lose weight fast in a week so you can fit into that outfit and impress the socks off of EVERYONE. Enter the 5 Day Inferno Plan.

Well, failure is not an option with the Turbo Fire 5 Day Inferno Plan workout, which is included in the complete Turbo Fire DVD Program. It's a mini "crash" program formulated for people who are getting ready for a big social function or just want to get a jump-start on the Turbo Fire ("TF") Workout program in general.

Basically, this is developed as a Monday through Friday plan. The 5 Day Inferno Plan helps you to get on the fast-track to losing weight and helping your muscles go from flabby to toned quickly and boosting your metabolism and burning fat.

As long as you follow the meal suggestions faithfully, and do one TF workout, minimum everyday, you can start this 5 day plan on any day of the week that works for you. Just stick to the plan!

The TF Inferno Plan comes with preplanned menus of 1200 calories, give or take, each day. And, each day has scheduled Turbo Fire classes or workouts. This will cause you to begin to plan out your meals and workouts using your personal tracker that is provided.

If you follow these instructions, you could lose up to 10 pounds and 10 inches in those 5 days.

To give you an idea of ​​the Inferno Plan, here is Day 1:

WORKOUTS:

Fire 55 EZ Class and Stretch 10 Class (Don't let the "EZ" fool you.)

MEALS:

Breakfast – Turkey Bacon Breakfast Sandwich

Snack 1 – half of a medium-sized banana, 7 walnut halves

Lunch – Tuna Salad

Snack 2 – One serving of Shakeology, 8 oz. water, 1/2 tbsp. almond butter, mix in blender with

ice.

Dinner – Honey Dijon Chicken with Steamed Garlic-Parmesan Broccoli

The nutrient information for Day 1:

Calories: 1183

Total fat: 41g

Protein: 107g

Carbs: 101g

Fiber: 16.5g

So, whether you're doing the 5 Day Inferno Plan or TF as a whole, you will burn 9X more fat and calories than you would with a typical cardio routine. TF accomplishes this by implementing HIIT, which is high intensity interval training. This is done by longer bursts of high intensity energy with shorter breaks.

Although, the HIIT workouts are intense, they are for a shorter period of time. Even though they last only a few minutes, scientific studies have shown that HIIT exercises, like in TF, burn calories during and after working out. You can get that after-burn for up to two entire days.

And it's perfect for people who don't have much time to work out or go to the gym and want an effective workout, since the workouts are shorter!

One of the craziest things about the fitness industry these days is how everything is geared to make exercise easier, instead of helping you to get in shape.

A while back I took a looksy in this new mega fitness club that had just opened, and when I walked onto the main exercise floor I thought I had accidentally stumbled into the testing facility for The Kennedy Space Center.

I had never seen so many machines and widgets in my entire life that would supposedly help me gain muscle and burn fat.

They had cardio equipment that allowed you to surf the web while you were on it, and workout machines that even kept track of your weight and reps for you…no lie.

Most of the equipment required you to sit down to use it, and each machine had multiple seat and lever adjustments, as well as a giant plastic sign with full instructions written on it.

I jumped on a few of the different pieces and banged out a couple sets each for about 15 minutes, but quickly grew bored with the limitations that they placed on me.

The problem with these gizmos is that they all isolated different bodyparts; one machine was for my biceps, another for core exercise, another for my pecs, and so on.

If all I had cared about doing was pumping up different bodyparts for purely cosmetic enhancement, I guess the machines would have been fine.

But I believe that this is one of the major setbacks for most of the people that workout in a regular health club.

You are being led like rats on a wheel, being told that this is how you should train, that machines are “safer” than free weights and just as effective.

You move from machine to machine, pumping up each bodypart individually, and then go run on a treadmill or an elliptical for an hour.

The problem here, boys and girls, is that none of this type of training is actually preparing you for real life, day-to-day activities.

It’s building “fake” muscles…toned, yeah, but unprepared for real athletic endeavors and leaving you prone to injury.

Think about this.

Most activities happen to you while you’re on your feet, and usually involve multiple muscle groups working simultaneously whilst doing things like bending, turning, twisting, running, etc.

For example, I’m thinking back to the day after Halloween last year, when I had to pick up and put away eight storage bins full of decorations weighing about 60-80 pounds each.

Let me tell you, no amount of measly isolation exercises on a machine would have prepared me for the amount of effort involved, or the stress on my back.

I had to not only hoist these up from the floor to shoulder level, I also had to press them above my head and twist my whole body 90 degrees to get each bin into its proper cubicle in my garage.

Whereas isolation training works individual bodyparts instead of preparing the body to work as a unit, most people who would have found themselves in my situation would have ended up with a tweaked back as a result of their inadequate training regimen.

So what’s the answer?

You need to train differently.

The type of training that will benefit you the most are exercises that require you to balance and coordinate, as well as challenging your strength, speed, flexibility and stamina.

You need to forget about what’s trendy and instead focus on what works.

You need to start training like a warrior, because every day, in a way, you ARE going into battle.

That battle consists of the strain being caused to your back and neck from sitting at a desk looking at a computer and watching reality shows and sports and DVD’s for long hours.

It consists of long commutes to work, and traffic jams and heavy traffic, all sapping your energy and making your muscles weak from disuse.

And lastly, there’s the stress of trying to be a great parent, boss, employee, son, daughter, and friend, all at the same time, every day.

E-mailing someone while you’re walking on a treadmill doesn’t make you better at time management, …
