Best Calories burned per minute routine?
My record on Smashing the blocks level three is just over 12000 which I'm pretty proud of considering Kinect loves to not detect my punches often on those ice blocks which loses valuable seconds. Having tried all routines in the game I figured this was the best for calories burned per minute even though things like boot camp obviously burn more, but the rubbish calorie counter simply demotivates you due to its inaccuracy.
However, after enjoying the Kick It! warm up exercise which I've been using as a recovery routine, I discovered that this is probably the most accurate counting in the entire game.
According to my calculations, 5 kicks = 1 calorie burnt - regardless of whether you hit the balls or not. In fact ignore the balls and simply kick imaginary balls at your own pace as fast as you can. Meaning you can easily obtain 30+ calories burned within the 2 minute period. It's also invigorating and feels like you're actually getting a decent cardio workout especially if you continually change legs and direction.
C'mon after scoring over 12000 I understand exactly how the ice blocks works. No, Kinect can;t handle the speed of the punches when you're in the zone.

Annoying as it missing you hitting the ice blocks is, I find it just as annoying when you crouch to duck the hammer and it thinks you've left the room!
That said, I make huge allowances for this game's foibles as it is still about the only thing that motivates me to regularly work out.
Ahhh, I used to do massive squats to duck out the way until I realised you only have to tilt to one side to avoid the hammers.
Aha - will have to try that. Not sure when though - must have over trained and right arm is strained at the moment.
Can't remember off the top of my head, but there was a heart healthy workout one that was like a cardio workout and although it was longer than the wallbuster game, it def felt like a nice calorie burn and had the counter showing upwards in the 70+ range when I did it.
