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 →
You might be surprised to learn that how you feel and even look every day is tied to your intestines. To maintain good health, your intestines must absorb nutrients properly and help your body to eliminate waste and toxins.
Your intestines, which lie between the stomach and rectum, are part of the Gl tract or digestive system. In the small and large intestines, food is broken down and absorbed into the bloodstream, providing your cells and organs with the energy they need to function. Your intestines do this with the help of good bacteria (also called microflora).
These “good bacteria” aid digestion, promote vital nutrient production, maintain pH (acid-base) balance, and prevent proliferation of unwelcomed, harmful, pathogenic bacteria. From the time of your birth your body is inhabited by microorganisms.
The microorganisms in our guts perform a host of useful functions, such as the fermentation of unused energy substrates, training the immune system, preventing growth of harmful, pathogenic bacteria, regulating the development of the gut, producing vitamins and producing hormones that direct our bodies to store fats.
Changes in diet, stress and aging and other factors can disrupt this delicate balance.
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.
