I'm just curious if anyone else does Turbo Jam cardio party, how many calories do you usually burn in 45 minutes? Mine seems to range between 500-600. When I input it on MFP it calculates that I would have burned only about 401 calories though. I know my hrm is not the best, but it's hard to believe that it's off by that much, so I was just hoping to get some feedback from others who do the cardio party workout. Thanks!

I recently got a HRM and I have found that I only burn around 200-300 calories doing the turbo jam workouts. Which is strange because it seems much more intense than my 2 or 3 mile runs which is about a 200 - 300 calorie burn.

I would go with your HRM though, it is bound to be much more accurate than what MFP has calculated without any input from your end.

I don't know what you weight but I see you have about 14 lbs to loss so I'm guessing your not that heavy? 500 to 600 calories in 45 min seems like a lot I would go out to the web and put the numbers in a few different site they will all be a litte different but you can than take the average best of luck

I burn about 340 doing cardio party and 440 doing punch, kick, and jam using the sculpting gloves. Haven't tried the sculpting gloves with cardio party. For me, turbo sculpt is about 230, but I assume calorie burn depends on weights used.

I think I will just go with what MFP calculates as that number is much lower.
