Boxy torso?
Boxy torso?
1/6/13 2:52 PM
Hi. I've been watching previews of TF and noticed that Chalene and most of the others on the video seem to have boxy torsos. I've read that comes from overworking the obliques. Does this program do that? Don't get me wrong, I love Chalene, but I don't want to lose definition in my waist.

In checking out the TF before and after pics on this site, it appears everyone's waist is still defined. It may just be her body type, but I know that overworking the obliques can cause that to happen.

Anyone notice this happening to them?

PS - I just Turbo Sculpt and she definitely has more definition in her waist on this DVD than compared to Turbo Fire.

Nice to know it's not my imagination! I really wish I knew what she was doing that changed her shape so I could avoid it.

I would have to say that it must be something those particular people do in their own personal workouts or is just their body type since if you look at the before and after photos on the TurboFire site and the photos of people on this forum, they don't seem to have that boxy look. I have not noticed that happening to my torso though I will admit that I still have a bit of fat to burn off in my torso before I will really be able to see what exactly my body will look like at my goal size. My tummy is definitely my trouble area.

If you notice that you are beginning to get that boxy look, I would recommend that during the times that Chalene has people move from side to side during the core workouts, just crunch forward instead. But like I said, I don't think that is something to worry about since judging from the before and afters of TF, I haven't noticed that being a trend in the body shape it creates.

After a discussion with someone we think it may be due to the fact that she works out ALOT & not just doing her workouts. She talks about tae kwon do etc... So I dont think that i have to worry about it. But I know I after I finish tf/clx hybrid i will do a bbl/ tf hybrid. BBL is suppose to help with being curvy.

I dunno, but even if a boxy torso was the outcome, i think i'd prefer that over this fluffiness i have right now! LOL emoticon
