Is doing a 30 min. TaeBo Kickboxing video Mon.-Fri. enough to lose weight and get more toned?
Only if you control your caloric intake as well. Combine healthy diet with your Kickboxing and you should do really well.
Yes, it seems highly likely that you will definitely get toned and lose weight by doing any exercise for 30 minutes five days per week.
My mom has been into exercise my whole life. I would say she's definitely an avid exerciser. And, she's 75 years old. She's still retained her 5 foot 5 inch, 115 pound figure of muscles and no fat. (She also eats really well). My mom has been exercising at least all of my life. She works out for an hour every morning six days per week, but she changes her routines and mixes it up so she doesn't get bored with the same thing. She does certain things a couple days per week, etc...including work-out of videos and has a treadmill and some other type of exercise machine. Then, in the late morning she goes for a 30-minute fast-paced walk around her neighborhood, which is a bit mountainous so there are several hills. And I think sometimes she and my stepdad go for another walk after dinner. But she's not exercise crazy -- I don't think. LOL
Anyway, she always told me this about exercising: it's hard to get started but once you do it becomes easier; do a variety of exercises to work on different areas of your body; if you get plenty of exercise, enough to burn off all the calories you eat through the day, you can eat whatever you want; if you focus on only one and doing that one five days per week for a set time, you run the risk of burning yourself out; exercise is easy, don't think about what you're doing and just do it, etc.
If you aren't much of an exerciser and you start off doing five days per week it may be too much though so maybe start with three days per week rather than five and work up to more. You could also mix it up by doing taebo, pilates, yoga on different days. Like two days taebo, one day pilates, one day yoga, and depending on the weather, you could go out and do fast-paced walking.
After my twins were born, I did pilates videos at home a few days per week and I saw results pretty fast from that too. I took core conditioning at the local junior college and it was two days per week for an hour and a half each class and I saw results pretty quickly.
Good luck with your exercising and I'm sure you will get the results you desire.
There are a lot of benefits you can derive from doing this workout, but the main effect it will have on your body is to increase your cardiovascular conditioning and probably anaerobic capacity as well. As the other answer said, calories are key, and not just any calories-healthy ones! :-)
My personal (opinion) suggestion would be to add resistance training, to this workout. Whether its free weights, machines, resistance cables or body weight exercises. This increases lean muscle, burns additional calories, even after the workout, and of course, promotes stronger muscles and bones. Good luck!
Exercise and a healthy diet will help you to lose weight. Tae Bo is a great total body workout that will tone your body. My tip would be to make sure you change up your Tae Bo exercises so that your body does fall into a routine and diminish your muscle toning.
The answer is, it depends. How do you eat? How strenuous is your workout. What time of day do you eat? It could,.
Always give thought to what you EAT and HOW MUCH OF IT YOU EAT.
There is a simple rule - Always eat that much that you still feel hungry at the end of the meal. This way you will build capacity.
I hope that will help.
