Turbulence Training Review.
Turbulence Training promises fast fat loss results for
men and women who don’t have a lot of time for exercise.
This is a bold promise, and the workouts promise maximum results
in only three workouts per week.
Let’s take a look at this claim, and see if it really measures up!
Before we get to the program, let’s take a look at the expert
behind the workouts.
I’ve come across Craig Ballantyne’s name many times in popular
fitness magazines such as Men’s Health and Men’s Fitness,
and even in Oxygen and Shape magazines.
So the program is clearly put together by a trusted fitness expert.
I’ve also talked to Craig about his training and education background,
and I’ll be honest, it was impressive, unlike the trainers with weekend
certifications that pop up at large commercial gyms.
Craig’s experience goes back to the mid-nineties, in both the gym
and in the research lab. He’s actually led research trials on
sport supplements, strength training, and cardiovascular training.
Plus, Craig has been a strength coach and has worked with hundreds
of clients in thousands of training sessions.
This is a unique, and thorough background, so its not surprising
he’s come up with a new training system for fat loss.
In fact, Craig’s articles are always pretty hard on traditional aerobic
cardio workouts.So if you’re looking for new ways to spend 30 or 60-minutes
doing cardio, then this program is not for you.
But if you only have 45 minutes to workout, a couple of times per week,
and you have access to only a bench, dumbells, and an exercise ball,
then you’ll like what Craig has for you here.
Now one of the biggest questions about the program is simply,
“What is Turbulence Training?” Well according to Craig, its the
combination of resistance training and interval training used to
boost your metabolism so that your body burns calories and fat
He says, “Cardio doesn’t boost your metabolism after exercise.
Only strength training and interval training do that –
while you work, sleep, and eat – your body will be shedding fat.”
Fortunately, Craig’s unique system of bodyweight exercises,
dumbell exercises, and interval training can all be done at home,
with minimal equipment (if you are really strong, it might help to
have a chinup bar).
So again, if you are one of those people who loves machines,
or cardio equipment, or marathon workouts,
then this program is not for you.
Frankly, I’ve used the program myself and recommended to many others.
Why? Because no one has time for long workouts! That’s why.
After an eight or ten hour workday, a round-trip commute of 90 minutes,
and spending time with my family, I just don’t have time to do another
90 minute workout every day of the week.
In fact, I either get up early and do the workout before work,
or I do it just before bed. This workout is perfect for busy
men and women. But its not the type of routine that is going to
turn anyone into a pro bodybuilder.
If you want maximum muscle and want to bulk up, try another one
of Craig’s programs. But the Turbulence Training system is best for
burning fat without sacrificing muscle –
so you end up lean, defined, chiseled and toned.
And its fun!So many workouts are boring(i.e. long cardio)
or repetitive(i.e. doing the same bodybuilding workout over and over again).
But Turbulence Training uses a lot of unique(but not fluffy)exercises,
including some cool, killer bodyweight moves that will make you more
athletic and increase your functional and core strength –
again, all with minimal equipment needs.
But, I am even able to recommend this program to friends who are
just starting out, because Craig has put together a 6-week
introductory program, and a 4-week intermediate program in addition
to the 16-week advanced training phase
(+the Turbulence Training program comes with a massive amount
of bonus workouts for muscle building, bodyweight only, advanced fat loss,
and even a female specific bonus).
But each workout progresses into the next.
He’s used all of these workouts with hundreds of clients –
so they are safe and effective.
Sure, you can get other programs that leave you smashed and puking
after the first workout, but Turbulence Training is not like that.
Soreness doesn’t matter, only results matter!
And you are in expert hands with Turbulence Training,
and Men’s Health expert, Craig Ballantyne.
Craig’s Turbulence Training also contains a contract –
basically, your pledge to being committed to the program.
It also includes an ebook on Nutrition Guidelines from expert,
Dr. Chris Mohr, Ph.D., and an extensive Q&A section,
a 21-Healthy Habit Building Plan, plus the complete
Turbulence Training workouts for beginner,
intermediate and advanced level individuals.
All users will benefit from the Turbulence Training where
Craig goes over the program, plus you can find every single exercise
explained in detail, complete with photos.
Okay, so bottom line. Turbulence Training is NOT….
Long, slow cardio workouts
A machine-based exercise circuit
A bodybuilding program to gain bulk
A workout with lots of time-wasting isolation exercises
A restrictive eating plan
Turbulence Training provides NONE of the above.
On the other hand, Turbulence Training is perfect for busy men and women
who want to burn fat in the comfort of their own homes without spending
a lot of money on equipment or space on exercise machines.
Oh, and you’ll actually have fun and you won’t “dread” these workouts –
heck, they will be over before you know it!
If you’re in the slightest bit curious, I recommend you look closely
at Craig’s program. I was very impressed with all of the
Turbulence Training workouts, the bonuses, the guarantee,
and Craig’s expertise. For the money, it’s the best deal in the fitness
and fat loss industry – so much better than diet pills!
