Turbulence Training Review

Posted on

Turbulence Training promises fast fat loss results for men and women who do not 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 certificates 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 it'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 between workouts. He says, "Cardio does not 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 do not 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 … Read More

Lose Weight Gain Muscle

Posted on

Only recently have nutritionists and sports scientists started to realize that in order to lose weight, gain muscle. It seems strange but makes perfect sense when you take a closer look at the process.

After all, muscle requires a lot of nutrients to keep it in perfect condition so naturally someone with more muscle will burn more calories, and so lose weight easier, than someone with less muscle.

There is something of a problem here though – and that is that gaining muscle requires additional nutrients in the diet typically, while weight loss requires fewer calories than are required for maintenance levels.

There are a number of books which have merged recently although which aim to resolve this riddle.

It seems that in order to lose weight and gain muscle at the same time you should eat a similar number of calories to your standard level (as worked out using one of the many online calorie calculators) but to consume these nutrients in a very specific form .

That form, of course, is in a low fat, moderate carb and high protein diet. Carbohydrates sources are selected carefully so that the body has to work hard to break them down into a usable form, thus slowing the flow of sugars into the blood and reducing the chances of any being stored as fat.

Ideal carb sources include brown rice, wholewheat pasta and a range of non-starchy vegetables. Add to this mix low fat and high protein sources like cottage cheese, egg whites (or substitute) and a range of meats and you have the basis of a diet that will enable you to lose weight and gain muscle.

Exercising with weights should be hard and you should aim for heavy weights that can only be lifted for around 10 reps. Keep increasing the weight lifted during each workout so as to "force" your muscles to grow and adapt. What sees to work well is a workout 2-3 times a week that focuses on each muscle group in turn, and exercising each with two different exercises.

So, you would do 10 reps of a bicep exercise (such as a bicep curl) then 10 reps of another bicep exercise (such as a hammer curl) then move into the next muscle group.

A workout should take no more than around 45 minutes as after this time your body has aa harder time coping with the intensity of the workout and frankly, if you feel you could keep going for another half an hour to an hour, it's probably the case that you're not actually working out hard enough. When I have finished one of these workouts I can barely move my muscles are so tired.

You may find initially that you do put on a small amount of weight but this should not be a major concern as do not forget that muscle weighs more than the fat you are trying to lose so this exchange may cause a few peaks and troughs to … Read More

The 101 on Child Weight Loss Camps

Posted on

With the growing concerns on child obesity, many parents are sending their children to child weight loss camp. A child weight loss camp is doesn’t just help children lose weight–it also helps them learn better self-worth, self-esteem, and self-image. Read on to learn more about weight loss camps and what they can do for you.

A change in lifestyle

Technological advancements like videogames, computers, and the Internet have created an unhealthy lifestyle for children. Children are now a lot less active, preferring to spend their time in front of the tube. It doesn’t help that fast food and junk food can be found on almost every corner. The average child spends hours in front of the TV, snacking on high-fat, high-calorie foods and doing nothing to burn it off.

Promoting a change

Parents can help promote changes in their child’s lifestyle by starting with themselves. A parent should discipline the child and show them good eating habits. They should also be able to promote a more active routine, whether by taking them on walks or encouraging them to try sports. However, when all else fails, a child weight loss camp can be a good backup plan.

Encouraging your child

Your child may be reluctant to go to a weight loss camp because of reasons such as self-esteem and teasing from their friends. One way to motivate them is to get rid of the term “fat camp”–simply call it a child weight loss camp. If your child is still apprehensive, chances are, they can get over it once they realize how fun those camps can be. Show them the list of activities and try introducing them to the camp counselor so they can get along.

The basics

A child weight loss camp promotes weight loss by introducing kids to a healthier foods and regular exercise. These programs are strict, but not in the same manner as a military boot camp where children are sent for disciplinary problems. Rather, the child weight loss camp will teach your child proper eating habits, encourage a more active lifestyle, and help build their self-esteem. By the end of camp, your child goes home healthier not just in physically, but also psychologically and emotionally.

The good camp

Remember that a weight loss camp is not meant to help them quickly lose weight, but beginning and maintaining a healthier lifestyle. A good child weight loss camp should be able to teach them the following:

o Good nutrition

o Making healthier good choices

o Finding fun alternatives to idle entertainment, such as sports instead of video games

o Getting support from peers and family

Where to find a weight loss camp

There is a child weight loss camp in almost every state. You can look for them on the yellow pages or using the online directories provided to you by search engines. You can also read through brochures or ask friends, acquaintances, or your child’s school for recommendations. Before signing your child up for anything, make sure the … Read More

Four Keys to Hiring the Right Personal Trainer

Posted on

Selecting a Houston personal trainer to help you get in shape can be a daunting and confusing process. Hiring a trainer is considered by some to be rather expensive, but it can make a tremendous difference in your level of fitness and health. Most Houstonians who have good personal trainers are addicted to the positive results they get and consider it a bargain. This article will describe the four keys to selecting the right fitness professional.

Key #1 — In What Part of Houston Do You Need a Personal Trainer

While this may seem obvious it is important that you select someone who trains in a part of Houston that is convenient for you. You will likely be seeing the trainer two to three times per week, and maybe even using that same gym on other days as well, so you want a location to be reasonably easy to get to. For example, if you work or live in The Woodlands you would not want to hire a Galleria area trainer, causing you to spend an hour plus commuting one way each time you had a session. The Houston area is filled with quality personal trainers so it makes sense to hire one within a reasonable proximity to your home or office.

Key #2 — Personal Referrals Are the Best Way to Locate a Quality Trainer

While glossy marketing brochures and fancy websites are nice, you are a lot better off making your decision with input from friends or acquaintances who have actually been clients of the trainer you’re considering hiring. If your friend tells you how she loves him, has lost 20 pounds and half of her body fat, and really enjoys her workouts, that is a personal trainer who should be high on your list. On the other hand, if another friend tells you that she really likes her trainer but that she hasn’t really made any fitness progress even though she’s used him for over a year, you probably want to avoid this one. In other words, results count. Personal trainers charge by the session so there’s no real point in getting one unless you are going to make progress towards your goals. A recommendation from someone who has gotten great results is absolutely the best evidence of an effective trainer.

Key #3 — Your Personal Trainer Should Be Certified by One of the Major Associations

The personal trainer field has several major trade organizations they can belong to. Most of these organizations have relatively stringent certification requirements which include certain educational and knowledge-based criteria as well as ongoing continuing education course requirements. One of the largest organizations who certify personal trainers is ACE (American Council on Exercise). Any trainer you consider hiring should hold one of these certifications. The reality is that there is no licensing requirement by the government before someone can call themselves a “personal trainer.” Anyone can decide to get business cards printed and go into this business, but that doesn’t mean that … Read More
