You know who is your worst enemy in the fight against fat?
Well-meaning fitness professionals that don’t want to make you feel bad for being lazy and eating crap. That’s who.
They write articles about how “diets are bad”, how you can lift soup cans and get fitness model arms, and how you should exercise in the nice and easy “fat burning zone” to get results. Basically, they give you what want to hear – plenty of excuses for avoiding hard exercise and strict nutrition (the real keys to fat loss).
But I don’t. You’ll get no such excuses from me.
Here’s the real deal on fat loss. You have to work hard in your workouts and even harder on your nutrition if you want results. Or you can take the politically-correct easy way out and have the same body in 3, 6, and even 12 months from now.
I was at a big event last week and was reminded how important it is to have strategies for this season of high-calorie parties and busy schedules. But I get ticked off by the tired old suggestions you find on the Internet or in magazines like Woman’s World.
Often the suggestions are lack any substance, because the writers don’t want to imply you actually have to make a sacrifice to succeed. They make fat loss sound easy, as if all you had to do was park at the far end of the parking lot and you’d burn all the calories from 5 shortbread cookies.
Well it doesn’t work that way…So here are my politically incorrect, unique Turbulence Training strategies to help you keep off the holiday pounds.
By the way, I “borrowed” a few ideas from contestants in my Turbulence Training Transformation Contest. The Transformation is rocking with social support and Continue reading →
Bodybuilders are not a fan of Turbulence Training. I don’t know why, but for some reason getting a workout done in less than 45 minutes really ticks them off.
I remember when I first tried out the Turbulence Training 2K3 workout from my TT for Fat Loss manual. It was in the dark and grungy downstairs weight room of System Fitness in the High Park area of Toronto – maybe you’ve even been there.
Anyways, that gym is full of bodybuilders. And hey, I have nothing against them, but they always gave me a hard time when I went in there and finished my supersets and entire workout so fast they didn’t even have time to finish training their biceps.
Perhaps you know how long and slow those bodybuilder isolation workouts are…well no one has time for those anymore.
But the bodybuilders would sit there with their weight belts on (why did they need a weight belt to do chest exercises?), sweatsuits, clown pants, and bloated bellies and Continue reading →
From weddings, to reunions to beach vacations, it seems there is always something to look good for. The trouble, however, is finding the one workout program to plough through that stubborn fat loss plateau and into the sculpted look you’re after.
The key to cutting away fat and shaping your best body possible is through hard work and variation. Nothing in life is free, and it’s rarely easy.
But, if you’re willing to put in the time and do what it takes to shed those last few pounds of fat, then you need a workout program that is going to seriously challenge every square inch of your body.
No pain, no gain, right?
Now here’s the simple truth, if you want to get the most out of your workouts, then you need to be doing the right exercises, and Continue reading →
I went to the gym for one of my 45-minute workouts and quickly found myself surrounded by a bunch of weight belt wearing, orange juice carrying bodybuilders.
Not that there’s anything wrong with them….
… In fact, I got along with these guys perfectly alright. The point is that our workouts couldn’t have been much more different.
You see, while the bodybuilders typically spent most of their 90-minute workouts sitting around in between sets, or drinking their big ol’ jugs of OJ, or even just chatting with one another, I spent my much shorter workout getting to work right away, and then making sure I didn’t slow down until I’d finished.
And the reason for this was simple…
… I just didn’t have a lot of free time to workout.
But just because I didn’t have 90 minutes a day to workout, didn’t mean I simply accepted mediocre results.
That’s because in half the time those bodybuilders were working out, I turned up the intensity and followed one of my favorite workouts from the Turbulence Training for Fat Loss Manual, TT 2K4.
With this 3 day-a-week workout in my arsenal, I was able to spend just 45 minutes in the gym. But that’s not even the best part!
That’s because TT 2K4 is designed in such a way that it burns fat long after you’ve left the gym. So all you need to do is workout hard for just 45 minutes and you’ll then reap the benefits for up to 48 hours later.
Ain’t that great?
I realize many of you are just as busy as me and so we can’t afford to workout 90 minutes a day, 6 days a week. That’s why I designed Turbulence Training and the 2K4 workout program.
With a series of challenging bodyweight and dumbbell supersets, not to mention one muscle-pumping superset that even bodybuilders would love, TT 2K4 is the perfect program to get you maximum results in minimum time.
