Bodyweight Exercises for Fat Loss and Bootcamps

Hi Everyone

It's Monday..

So yesterday I had a Full day of fitness, from the minute I woke up till the 2 hours of Salsa I ended the night with..

Details of the workout and video of some of the dancefloor move are on the facebook page:

Now I quick post from Craig B here:

Couple of years ago, in response to reader demands, I put together
a little workout called Bodyweight Cardio.

It was a hit, and last spring I created an even better version
called "Bodyweight Cardio 3".

And within that program, the most popular was Workout B, where you
do 5 circuits of 5 exercises, spending 1 minute on each exercise.
I want to give you the first 3 rounds today. Here we go:

Round #1
- Jumping Jacks
- Bodyweight Squats
- T-Pushups (alternate sides)
- Repeated Vertical Jumps
- Prisoner Lunges

Round #2
- Pushup
- Prisoner Squat
- Squat Thrust
- Duck Under
- Burpee

Round #3
- Seal Jump
- Spiderman Climb
- Get Up
- Side-Step
- Run in Place

Again, this was one of my most popular programs of 2010, and if you
want Rounds 4 & 5, plus workouts A, C, and D from that program, AND
more at home bodyweight workouts, you can get them all for only $19.95:


More at-home workouts on the way

Want to get out of the house..

The "C" word women HATE

Hi Everyone,

We are talking about the C word today..


First what is it?

Well Wiki says:

Cellulite is a topographic skin change claimed to occur in most postpubertal females.[1] It presents as a modification of skin topography evident by skin dimpling and nodularity that occurs mainly in women on the pelvic region, lower limbs, and abdomen, and is caused by the herniation of subcutaneous fat within fibrous connective tissue, leading to a padded or orange peel–like appearance

What does it look like?

Weight Loss May Worsen Cellulite?

The research, published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, is based on a study of 29 women who enrolled in medically supervised weight loss programmes. These included low-fat meals and the extreme measure of bariatric surgery, such as gastric bypass and gastric banding. Seventeen of these patients (58%) experienced an improvement in the appearance of their cellulite, but nine (31%) saw their condition worsen.

The patients with the biggest improvements were those who lost the most weight and lowered their percentage of thigh fat. They also had a higher body mass index (BMI) to begin with and more severe cellulite.

Patients whose cellulite worsened started with a "significantly" lower BMI, lost smaller amounts of weight and had no change in percentage of thigh fat.

Those whose skin became looser after weight loss - losing its elasticity - also had worse cellulite. The average weight loss was 13.8kg (30.5lb). The study concluded that losing weight had "variable effects" on the appearance of cellulite.

John Kitzmiller, a plastic surgeon and co-author of the study, said: "Approximately 85% of women are affected by cellulite. Cellulite is not specific to overweight people but excess weight may worsen the condition.

"Although the appearance of cellulite diminished for the majority of patients, weight loss did not totally eradicate the condition. The dimples appear to be permanent features that lessen in depth as the pounds come off."

How do you get rid of it?

If you've wasted time and money on scam cellulite solutions, you're going to be happy – and sad – to hear what I have to say. The truth is if you want to
know how to lose cellulite, the answer has been right in front of your face all along.

And yes, it's the classic 3-step system of the right diet, the right exercise, and getting social support. There's nothing fancy, nothing expensive, and nothing magical about any of these.

Perhaps you expected me to promote some magical seaweed harvested off the coast of the Canary Islands only between November and December when the moon is full? Well, if that's the case, I'm sorry to disappoint you.

Instead, you're going to discover that it's possible for a woman to lose cellulite in her 40's, 50's and 60's, even when most women have given up on beating the cellulite curse.

Most women rely on long, slow cardio training, but in all my years as a trainer, I've never seen jogging build a better butt. In fact, most women joggers still have the same saggy butt and thighs problem as non-joggers.

And sometimes it's even worse (plus, they notice it more too, with all that thigh-rubbing during their long, slow cardio workouts).

Instead, women need to focus on interval training to lose cellulite from their thighs and resistance training to tone up their tush..

That's exactly what one my clients, a woman named Melanie, did it by switching to three short, but intense workouts per week. She Joined Bootcamp, and when she couldnt go to Bootcamp she used my CELLULITE REMOVAL SYSTEM and started with 20 minutes of total body resistance training and finished with 20 minutes of interval training.

Melanie found these workouts to be much more effective for losing cellulite than her old workouts of long cardio. Australian researchers have also found that interval training is more effective for burning belly fat in woman as well, even though the interval workouts lasted only half the time.

No marathon cardio sessions needed. Instead, her cellulite solution workouts focused on short, burst activities only. But none of this would have been possible without the support of her husband.

Most women don't know this, but social support is one of the most important factors in the success of any fat loss program. If you don't have someone motivating you, encouraging you, and holding you accountable, even all the magic in the world won't cure your cellulite, because at the end of the day, you still have to do the work.

Along with a 1600 calorie per day diet of whole, natural foods and the loving social support of her husband, Melanie was able to lose over 25 pounds in 12 weeks and dropped her body fat 7.7% to an all-time low of 16.9%. She lost 3 inches from her thighs and over 3.5 inches from her hips. It literally looks as though someone elevated her butt two inches and removed all the fat from her low back.

By getting rid of her cellulite and boosting her butt, Melanie not only changed her body but transformed herself inside and out. She now has the power over food, rather than it having the power over her, and she has her best-ever body, most women simply give up or continue to rely on cellulite scams to provide an overnight change in their body.

She is an inspiration to women everywhere who want to know how to lose cellulite.

There's no magic potion or pill. Just the right diet, exercise and social support.

8 Metabolism Boosters for Fat Loss

Your metabolism is your fat loss foundation.

It keeps burning and burning fat 24 hours a day...the only problem
is, do you have a fast metabolism? And if not, what can you do
about it to boost your metabolism and burn fat to lose weight?

Your metabolism is basically how many calories you burn each day.
Children have faster metabolic rates than adults, and we all know
about the legendary metabolism's of teenage boys. That's the
metabolism you wish you had.

And while it is inevitable that your metabolism decreases with age,
it doesn't doom you to gaining weight. It might even decrease 30%
over your life, but really, is that any reason to become
overweight? No way. Not when you can turn it around with a couple
of simple, proven techniques listed below...

Here are 8 possible metabolic boosters and the truth about whether
each works.

1) Strength training

Claim: Boosts metabolism up to 10% after a training program


In fact, despite what many men and women think, harder exercise is
better for your metabolism. However, please note that 1 pound of
muscle does not burn 50 calories per day.

In one study, women received a greater metabolic boost from using 8
repetitions per set rather than traditional high-rep (12 reps)
sets. So stick to harder exercises (pushups and more advanced
bodyweight exercises) or dumbbell exercises.

2) Breakfast

Claim: Because it stops your "fasting", it can boost metabolism

True? Maybe yes, maybe no. Your metabolism won't go into
"starvation mode" without breakfast, but it is associated with
successful weight loss. So make it a habit to consume some protein,
fiber, & fruit (& even veggies if you can fit them in) at this
time. This will keep your appetite in check till your next break or
even lunch.

3) Green Tea

Claim: Burns an extra 80 calories per day

True? Not really. It has been shown to burn 80 calories per day in
young men on the first day of supplementation, but will this affect
last once your body gets used to it? I don't think.

After all, take a look at caffeine. You can find studies that show
it increases metabolism as well. But really, is anyone losing fat
with caffeine? The revolving doors at Starbucks say "No!".

Coffee is okay in moderate doses, and I recommend Green Tea to
everyone, but for health reasons, not for fat loss. The only way
you will lose fat with Green Tea is if you replace a 300+-calorie
Frappucino with an iced, unsweetened Green Tea. Otherwise, don't
count on it for much in terms of metabolism.

4) Fat Burners

Claim: Boost your metabolism big time!

Fat burners are simply caffeine pills with a few other ingredients thrown
in. You'll get an increase in mental energy, but that doesn't mean it will
significantly boost metabolism or burn fat.

5) Ice Cold Water with Lemon Juice Squeezed into it

Claim: The body will burn calories warming up the water and the
lemon juice also burns more fat.

Truth? Nice in theory, short in practice. Nobody is losing fat with
ice cold water. If it sounds too good to be true - you know the
rest of the story.

6) Eating 6 small meals per day

Claim: Boosts metabolism and can help control cholesterol.

Possibly true. Try and split your meals up into smaller meals that can be
eaten over the course of the day. This might be part of the breakfast magic...

7) Protein

Claim: Burns more calories (uses more calories in digestion than
carbohydrates or fat).

True, but…

I'm not sure if this is significant, but protein also helps
fill you up longer. And that's where the real benefit comes in -
preventing overeating. And if you want details, another study
showed that animal protein results in more energy burned than
vegetable protein.

8] Interval training

Claim: Interval training causes a greater increase in post-exercise
metabolism than regular cardio.

I certainly believe it.

And I do know this. A recent study from Australia found that a
shorter interval program led to more weight loss than a
twice-as-long aerobic training program. This confirms the original
interval training study from as far back as 1994 that showed
greater results from a shorter interval program when compared to a
traditional cardio program.

Bottom line: Intervals work!

So we see that hard work and diligent eating burn more calories and
that magic pills and potions don't work.

But that shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. My advice? Add
strength, intervals, mini-meals, and protein to your weight loss
plan and you'll be leaner and warmer thanks to your faster

"In November of 2005, I noticed that I had put on a significant
amount of weight. I had avoided getting on the scale b/c I was
afraid to see how bad the # was. With my job, I had many client dinners
frequently and I wasn't taking into the consideration of how much it was
impacting my weight.

I was still working out, but didn't have a solid program that I
committed to. I went to the gym when I had time. When I finally got on
the scale I noticed that my weight hit an all time high of 228lbs!!! Not good,
when I know my optimal weight for my frame is 210lbs.

The last 3 months I committed to Turbulence Training and made some
modifications to my diet outlined in the TT program. What I realized
is that the workouts were more intense, I burned more calories and
I made it out of the gym in less time then I previously did. This
worked well for my busy schedule and it was simple to commit to
this program.

After a 3 month commitment, I am happy to say I am now back at
210lbs and feel better then I have in years. All thanks to the TT
program. I have tried many programs and this is the most effective
and simple program I have ever used. I recommend to anyone that faces
the same busy work/personal life that I do."

Are you going to let this stop you? (Seriously?)

GUEST POST BY Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS

If I have been too subtle in the past, let me be absolutely clear

The time to do something, the time to take action to transform your
body, improve your health and energy for your family, and
dramatically boost your confidence is NOW.

I am even more passionate about this issue today than ever before,
and with good reason.

In the last week I have received personal emails from so many new TT
members who are struggling with their weight, looking for miracles,
and ready to cave in to long, slow, dreadful cardio workouts...

Everyone around them, from the gym sales people to well meaning
friends, and even the "energizer bunny TV exercise gurus" are trying
to create fear that "without cardio you can't lose weight".


I'll spare you the details as you've probably heard them before, but
the most important fact is that you will not dramatically transform
your body and lose fat with long, slow, cardio workouts...you'll
lose only your time and money.

And nothing makes me angrier than what I saw at the gym on Saturday,
where a trainer was taking a beginner client through an excruciating
90 minute workout - including an hour of slow cardio (could you
imagine the gall of the trainer to charge a client to monitor their

I almost ripped my workout journal in half from disgust as I
listened to myth after myth come out of this trainer's mouth.

"Long slow cardio for at least an hour..."

"Light weights, high reps, for about 30-45 minutes after cardio..."

"Add some more cardio on an empty stomach first thing in the morning..."


What is going to take for people to realize that this approach is
never going to work for them long-term?

Who has 3 hours per day to go to the gym?

Do they need to lose their family and friends before they realize
that there is a much simpler way of changing their body?

As Dave Kekich says in Kekich Credo #84, "Nobody gets old by surprise."

The time to change is NOW.

So what should you do?

1) Get started in the 10th Turbulence Training Transformation Contest.

There is no cost to enter and you can WIN $1000 by losing belly fat.

Here are all of the details to start:

=> Turbulnce Training
(Hurry, last day to enter is Saturday, January 15th.)

And remember: A 12 week transformation is only 0.3% of your life. If
you focus on learning about your body for 12 weeks it will allow you
to be lean forever.

The TT Transformation is the 0.3% solution you've been looking for.

2) Stick to the basics.

Sure it's easy to get caught up in the latest "weight loss craze",
but it is essential for you to never stray too far from the basics.

a) Keep and review your food journal regularly.
b) Use a proven, structured workout program that gets you maximum
results in minimum time - you don't even need a gym membership.
c) Surround yourself with social support at home, work, and online.

These are the most important factors in your fat loss success and
all of those are covered with Turbulence Training here:

=> Turbulnce Training

3) I want you to put a little urgency into your fat loss program.

IMAGINE: What if you had to lose 10 pounds in 10 weeks or you lost
your job, could you do it?

Imagine you had to go to jail if you skipped your workout to sit on
the couch instead - would you make that workout?

You just need to find compelling motivation to stick to your plan,
so spend some time in reflection on that - and find YOUR REASON.

We have had transformation winners from all ages and all walks of
life, including 44 year old Catherine from California, 58 year old
Guttorm from Norway, 44 year old Hal from America, and 28 year
old Emily living in Spain.

All of our winners have been busy, frustrated, intimidated, and
definitely skeptical of what Turbulence Training could do.

But they all had big plans. They conceived and believed that they
could make major accomplishments. And they lost 14, 27 and even 34
pounds of fat in just 12 weeks.


Nobody gets old by surprise.


No one is in a "perfect environment" to transform their body. We all
have stress and time limits. That's why you need a proven plan. Not
one "made up" by an inexperienced personal trainer or your well
meaning but informed friends.

If our past winners can do it, so can you. If they can find a way,
so will you. You could live in Australia, England, Dubai, America,
Canada, Argentina, or anywhere else - we all have an equal chance to
transform our bodies and our lives.

So those are the 3 main things I want you to change today.

I have a lot of work to do to help you make this your best year ever,
and I'm working on new programs that will take you through the
contest to give you more results faster than ever.

Feel free to share this message with your friends and family if you
think it will help them.

One of my favorite contest winners, Guttorm, actually received
Turbulence Training as a gift from his wonderful daughter...and I
don't think it is an exaggeration to say that it has changed his life.

Please let me know how Turbulence Training is changing yours.
