The 1000 Calorie Challenge by Joel Marion and Arnel Ricafranca is a program that supposedly allows you to burn up to 1000 calories per workout, hence the name 1000 Calorie Challenge. This is to ensure you strip away excess body fat at the fastest rate possible. I have been getting a lot of emails about this program from these guys so I decided to take a look for myself to see what all the hype was about.
After going through the entire program, I have come to some conclusions about it all. Overall, it is a solid program that both Joel Marion and Arnel Ricafranca have provided for you.
However, the title of the course is a bit misleading. You see, if you are a beginner, then you are not going to be burning a 1000 calories right off the bat. You could try, but you might end up hurting yourself by pulling a muscle or literally passing out on the floor.
You have to work up to this level since it will not come over night.
What I did like about the program was that it changes up a lot through out the different phases. This is great because you will never hit a plateau and it always keeps the body guessing. By keeping the body guessing, you will be burning more calories through each workout and even when your sitting on the couch resting.
But this leads me to my next point. After flipping through everything, you might find yourself in information overload. There is a lot that is covered and they use some pretty big, fancy words that you might not understand after the first time.
But just keep plowing through and re read it if you have to. You will learn a lot.
Overall, the 1000 Calorie Challenge from Joel Marion and Arnel Ricafranca seems like a solid program to help you blast away any remaining body fat.
However, there is one thing missing that I feel could help solidify your fat loss results.
