This is of great help to many athletes since these exercises are of great importance to them. Other machines are not reliable when it comes to explosive training their barbell weights are also expensive as compared to those of dumbbells. During the dumbbell training, the requirements are so affordable and cheap as compared to the other methods. You only require an open space for training a piece of plywood or a rubber mat to protect the floor. These exercises help build a strong chest.

A fit body maintains normal blood pressure, normal heart beat hence the occurrence of diseases will be minimal. These exercise help improve mental health for kids.

6 Signs Your Personal Trainer Is Wasting Your Money

Posted by Nigel Jeal | Posted in Articles, Fitness, Getting started, Information | Posted on 11-01-2013-05-2008

Getting A Personal Trainer?

 

Don’t Waste Your Hard Earned Money!

 

Yes, It’s True, Isn’t It?

 

Finally, you’re serious about losing weight and getting fit, so you decide that you’re going to hire a personal trainer to help motivate you and move you towards your goal.

When you hire the services of a personal trainer, you would expect that they will provide you with a high value for your hard earned money. You expect to get expert instruction on how to safely and effectively use proven training methods and tailor-made exercise routines that will fit your specific training goal.

That’s your dream anyway, right?

The reality is that many of the common raining trends that personal trainers use are based more on misinterpretations, myths and misconception. That can result in you paying out good money for poor results.

You’re about to discover 6 signs your personal trainer is unknowingly misguiding you, and how you can work with your trainer to get the results you really want.

1. Your Trainer Uses Their Favourite Exercises Instead Of Designing A Personalized Program To Help You

You will often find that your trainer will have their own philosophy type; they may follow Kettlebells, Pilates, Bodybuilding or any other type of workout routine. This can easily lead your trainer to give you a private lesson in their chosen philosophy type and speciality instead of designing a personalized program you help you towards your goal.

Ensure you find a trainer based on the RESULTS they’ve gotten for other people like you.

2. Your Trainer Doesn’t Motivate You To Reach Your Goals

After a while, your body will get stronger and you will need new workout routines to challenge your body and keep you motivated and moving closer towards your goal. If your trainer isn’t monitoring your progress, they will not be in the right position to give you new workout routines. Your trainer should be keeping track of the exercises you’re doing, the weight you lift, and the number of reps and sets you perform, you’re heading for real trouble.

You need to know that this is a process and it’s up to your trainer to keep everything organized and keep you continuously progressing.

3. Your Trainer Isn’t Strict Of Form

The main reason you hire your personal trainer is to help you train in an effective and safe way.

Does your trainer ever stop you exercising to correct your form?

The best way to test this is to by doing one of your exercises incorrectly to see if your trainer notices you and is actually willing to correct you.  If they do, cool…their doing a great job.  If they don’t you should make this your last training session together, they’re not doing their job properly and putting you in danger of causing yourself serious injury, especially if you’re using weights.

4. Your Trainer Gets Distracted

Have you been to the gym lately?

It can be a really distracting place for your trainer.  Good music blaring from the speakers, TVs on everywhere, beautiful girls walking around, and looking around for other potential clients. It’s difficult enough to be distracting to you and may make your workout less effective, but if your trainer is distracted it doesn’t just harm your workout routine, but it is also a waste of your money.

If you’re not getting the full attention from your trainer, you’re not getting a good return on your investment. Find a trainer who will give you the best service possible.

5. Your Trainer Offers You Sport Specific Exercises To Improve Your Sport

This is one your trainer can really get wrong.  If they have you using a resistance band on the end of a golf club or hockey stick and swinging it or having bands that are strapped around your back while you practice your boxing moves or even using a medicine ball instead of a basketball you will have to use extra force than you would normally for your chosen sport.

Why is doing this a mistake?

The movement skills required in your sport are EXACT, not similar, EXACT.

The Answer?

Strength and conditioning workouts will give you the physical fitness to do what you need to do when you practice for your sport.

In reality, any and all athletes can benefit from adding strength and increasing explosive power, which can help you to run faster, jump higher and also transfer more force to an implement, like a swinging bat or tennis racquet or golf club or simply throwing a punch. General strength training can also help athletes better protect their connective tissues, which could help decrease risk of injury.

6. Your Trainer Doesn’t Teach You Anything You Don’t Already Know

Again, one of the main reason you hire your personal trainer is to help you train in a way that is going to challenge you and teach something you don’t already know.

If your trainer isn’t teaching you any new training routines are you really going to continue paying them?

Surely you could do those workout routines and get the exact same results by doing them yourself?

If your trainer isn’t providing high value for your money, find yourself another trainer!

WHAT YOU CAN DO TO FIND A GOOD PERSONAL TRAINER

Do your research, then go and interview them – and don’t hold anything back here!

Arm yourself with a set of informed questions you can ask trainers before you even train with them:

a) Here’s my goal. What’s the best way to achieve it?

b) Why is that method better than other fitness training methods for helping me to achieve my goal?

c) Do you use the same basic training method for everyone you work with? Why or why not?

d) Have you ever worked with others like me (similar age, sex, body-type, medical history, etc.) who have similar goals? And if so, did you use this training approach with them?

e) If so, please show me some before and after pictures of these clients or at least provide some testimonials from them?

This should ensure that you get only the best trainers in your area!

WARNING: Don’t Blame Your New Trainer for Your Poor Habits

I have to make it clear that you cannot blame your trainer for you not losing body fat if you go home and eat like a lazy teenager. It’s also unfair to blame your trainer for not helping you make drastic muscle gains if you are only going to work with them once or twice a week and do absolutely nothing the rest of the time.

Training is not something a personal trainer does TO you, it’s something they do WITH you.

In other words, the trainer provides you with the best direction to take, based on your needs and goals. It’s up to YOU to keep moving in that direction throughout each day.

Dedicated to your success,

–Nigel

Best Metabolic Workout Plan

Posted by Nigel Jeal | Posted in Articles, Fitness | Posted on 23-11-2012-05-2008

By Craig Ballantyne

The latest Men’s Health magazine contained a shocking research study stat.

According to the article, you can boost your sleeping metabolic rate by 8 percent more than normal IF you workout with heavier weights.

That adds up to over 5 pounds per year…and it’s why I’m a big fan of creating intense Turbulence Training workouts for BOTH men and women for rapid fat loss.

If you don’t challenge yourself with exercises in the 6-8 rep range then you’re leaving your metabolic burn boost benefit on the table.

Don’t make that mistake.

To get maximum results, you need to use a fat loss workout system like this:

Step #1 – Bodyweight Warm-up

Step #2 – Metabolic Resistance Training (sets of 8 reps)

Step #3 – Metabolic Conditioning Training (higher reps) or Intervals

Let’s say you only had 20 minutes to workout.

You could do this 20-minute metabolic boosting TT workout:

MRT: Metabolic Resistance Training
– 8 reps per exercise (per side, if applicable)
– No rest between exercises
– 60 second rest at the end of the circuit
– Repeat for 3 rounds

1A) Goblet Squat or Narrow-Stance Barbell Squat
1B) DB Row or TRX Rows
1C) DB Incline Press or Decline Spiderman Pushups (try with TRX)
1D) Goblet Bulgarian Split Squat

Take a 2 minute break and then move on to MCT.

MCT: Metabolic Conditioning Training
– 40 seconds per exercise (per side, if applicable)
– Rest 20 seconds between exercises
– Repeat for 6 minutes straight

2A) Kettlebell Swings
2B) DB Lunge or Prisoner Lunge
2C) Elevated Pushups (switch sides after 20 seconds) or TRX Rows

That’s it, short and metabolically-boosting-calorie-burning sweet.

If you liked that, you’ll love the complete Metabolic Workouts package and bodyweight Bonuses that you’ll get in the Turbulence Training Black Friday Sale.

This is the best Black Friday sale that you’re going to get anywhere at anytime, and you don’t have to camp out all night at Wal-Mart to do so.

Grab all 13 classic TT Workouts for 93% off the regular price.

There’s never been a deal like this before, AND you get access to all the TT Metabolic Resistance Training fat burning workouts.

The complete package includes:

1) The Bodyweight Cardio Pack
2) TT MRT 1.0 and TT MRT 2.0 (2 of the most popular TT workouts)
3) TT for Beginners and Total Torso Training
4) TT Thermogenic-30 (The 2012 Workout of the Year)

2 Workouts that Saved Guru Personal Trainer from Embarrassment

Posted by Nigel Jeal | Posted in Articles, Fitness | Posted on 19-11-2012-05-2008

By Craig Ballantyne, CTT
Creator, Turbulence Training

In 1996 I was embarrassingly skinny. I remember sitting with my friends and being ashamed of my formerly athletic body.

And all of this happened for an embarrassing reason.

You see, in 1994 I was a 180 pound 19 year old kid heading off to my first year of college to study exercise science.

My bench press was 225 pounds. I was in my prime.

But then I made a huge mistake.

I listened to my Exercise Physiology professor talk about long slow cardio workouts, and I made the mistake of switching my lifting for cardio.

Two years later, at my most pathetic strength and physique levels, I was 142 pounds. YIKES.

People thought there was something wrong with me.

Fortunately, I got my head switched on right, thanks to a more advanced Exercise Physiology class in my final year of my Undergraduate program.

And then in the summer before starting my Master’s Degree, everything finally clicked.

I started using the Turbulence Training style workouts that would come to dominate my life.

It was a combination of non-competing supersets, intense training, basic-but-brilliant exercises, intervals instead of cardio, and fewer, shorter workouts than ever before that…

FINALLY gave me the fitness cover model body that you’ve seen in my pictures on the net, the Toronto Star, and in GQ magazine.

Now to be honest, I’ve never written about this before because I always felt it was too embarrassing to share with you.

But lately on the Turbulence Training Facebook page so many readers have been asking, “What workouts did you use to get your body?” that I realized I needed to tell YOU the full story.

The exact workout style that I used to get ripped abs, chisel my chest, and build my biceps are found in the main Turbulence Training manual and are called:

TT 2K3 and TT 2K4

Each workout lasts 4 weeks, and I guarantee that if you use these programs – just like I did – that you’ll get ripped and build a lean sexy body by the time January rolls around.

Listen, I was once like you and I know what’s it’s like to not get results. But it’s not your fault.

Perhaps you were led down the wrong path by a teacher, a trainer, or more likely, a poorly designed program in a magazine.

It’s time for all that to end.

It’s time for you to build the body you’ve always wanted.

Just like I did, using the same workouts.

And because I know your frustration, you’re receiving a special offer this week.

You’ll get the complete Turbulence Training system I used to build my body – including the legendary TT 2K3 and TT 2K4 workouts – all while saving 50% off the regular price (and getting inside-access to our private member’s area).

I know what’s it’s like to not get what you want.

But I also know what it’s like to have found the solution.

Get started today and make the same body transformation that I’ve been able to make.

You can do it,

Craig Ballantyne, CTT

4 Tips For Effective Weight Loss

Posted by Nigel Jeal | Posted in Cardio, Fitness | Posted on 29-10-2012-05-2008

0

Are you fed up with continuously seeing no measurable or long-lasting results whenever you try to lose weight? Or maybe you are sick and tired of throwing your money away on the latest fad diets, only to be let down again. Stop! That’s right, stop whatever you’re doing, you are going to want to hear this. Don’t even think about trying another diet plan or weight loss program until you read this article. Why? Because these four tips will put you on the fast track to lose weight safely and keep it off.

Each of the tips is based on science. That means they have always been around and are not fads. It’s just that a lot of people selling the latest weight loss programs don’t always like to share them, so it’s not your fault if you haven’t been able to effectively lose weight.

1. The Magic of Muscle – In short, the more lean muscle you have as you are trying to lose weight, the better. The amount of calories you are able to burn off is related, in part, to how much muscle mass you have. On top of that, more muscle allows you to exercise more effectively, and have more endurance. The fact that muscle is more attractive than fat doesn’t hurt either.

One of the best ways to build muscle mass is through strength training. You can still engage in aerobic exercise, and should, but nothing beats lifting weights and resistance training to add muscle to your body. This is important because muscle also requires more calories to stay fed, which is good, and brings us to the next point…

2. Stoke the Furnace – What we are talking about here is metabolism; that is the rate at which your body burns calories. As we have already seen, muscle tissue is excellent for burning calories and boosting your metabolism. However, there is something else you can do to keep your metabolism whirring along.

Eating smaller meals throughout the day, as opposed to three larger meals, will keep your body working at burning calories. It also has the added benefit of keeping your hunger from getting out of control.

3. Fast Feet – We’ll keep this tip short and sweet. A great way to lose weight is to take brisk walks on a regular basis. It’s not only easy enough to do, but it will also help you to lose weight safely and keep it off.

4. Cut Calories – This may be the biggest “secret” that fad diets try to conceal, but it gets right to the heart of the matter. The only way to lose weight is to burn more calories than you take in. So far we have looked at burning calories, but now it’s time to switch to reducing how many you take in. The good news is that you don’t have to religiously count every calorie that goes into your mouth. All you have to do is make better food choices, and make a conscious effort to eat reasonable portions.

If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment and we’ll get back to you. Thanks for reading.

Lose Weight And Build Muscle The Right Way

Posted by Nigel Jeal | Posted in Articles, Diet, Fitness | Posted on 20-10-2012-05-2008

0

To be able to lose weight and build muscle you need to be on a low fat, high protein diet and work out with weights on a regular basis. Low fat to help lose the excess body fat and high protein to help build the lean muscle mass, and the weights to tone, tighten, and strengthen.

If you are just starting out you will need to assess your current diet and make some changes. You can cut out most of the fat in your diet but remember, your body has to have some fats to work properly so you can’t cut them out completely. The fats to steer clear of are saturated fats, hydrogenated oils, and trans fats.

Some food choices that are good sources of fats that you should have are salmon, avocados, and olive oil. Just remember to eat these types of fats in moderation as well.

Proteins you should eat to lose weight and build muscle should be lean protein like boneless, skinless chicken breasts or turkey breasts, any kind of fish, and pork and red meat in moderation. You may choose to take a protein supplement as well if you are really interested in bulking up. Do not take any supplements or anything like that without talking to your doctor first.

Working with weights is a very important part of the equation. Even if you just followed the diet tips listed above, you might lose the excess body fat but your body still needs resistance training to help build your muscles. Now if you’re a woman I don’t want you to panic, when I say build your muscles I’m not talking about becoming the Hulk, rather just getting some nice, and feminine, muscle tone.

The truth of the matter is that women simply can’t get really big, they just don’t have enough testosterone to get really big. If you’re thinking to yourself that I’m wrong because you’ve seen the female weight lifters you must understand that even if they’re not taking any performance enhancing drugs, they are still working out as a full time job. Do you work out that much? Do you eat 100% healthy 100% of the time? Probably not so all you’ll do by lifting weights is to get a fabulously toned body that will burn fat even while you’re asleep.

To get the most out of your weight training remember, it’s all about the form. I actually just got back from working out right before I wrote this article and no matter how many times I see it, I’m still amazed to watch the poor form people use when lifting weights. Just today there was a young woman at my gym who was basically following me, she did all the machines or free weights I did. All I can say is that she must have been in a hurry because she did her sets so fast she might as well not have done them at all. She was hardly engaging her muscles at all, what she was doing, was letting gravity and momentum help her through her sets.  That’s not the right way to do it.

If you want to lose weight and build muscle there are three main steps: cut back on your fat intake, eat more lean protein and start weight training. Just make sure that you take it slowly when lifting weights, you want your muscles to do all the work, not gravity.

If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment and we’ll get back to you. Thanks for reading.

How To Lose Weight on the Thighs

Posted by Nigel Jeal | Posted in Articles, Diet, Fitness | Posted on 07-10-2012-05-2008

0

If you’ve got excess fat on your thighs then you probably also have excess fat throughout the rest of your body. Despite what you may have heard on various infomercials and programs there really is no such thing as “spot reducing” only one area of the body. The only way to learn how to lose weight on the thighs is to lose it all over and that takes motivation and determination. Motivation to exercise at least 30 minutes three times a week, watch what you eat and incorporate some weight training into your workouts and the determination to stick to it.

Here is something you may not know, you don’t have to kill yourself on the treadmill, the elliptical trainer, stair climber or stationary bike any more. Out with the old and in with the new. New studies have proven better and faster weight loss can be achieved by working each muscle group to fatigue during your workout by doing only one set at your maximum weight setting.  What this means is you can greatly reduce the amount of cardio training you do on the treadmill, stairclimber, elliptical trainer or stationary bike or eliminate it all together especially if you really hate it, and be honest, who doesn’t hate cardio?

Next and probably most important is your diet. Eliminate all “white” foods such as white flour, white bread, white rice and, white sugar. All of these contain carbs that convert into simple sugars in your body and get stored immediately as fat. Instead stick with a diet rich in complex carbs found in whole grains and brown rice, lean protein like boneless, skinless chicken breasts or fish, eat several servings a day of fresh fruits and vegetables and drink plenty of water to flush out toxins and stay hydrated.

The general rule of thumb for taking in enough water every day is to drink half of your body weight in ounces of water each day. So, if you weigh 200 lbs you need to drink 100 ounces of water each day. Now that may seem like a lot but when you figure the average person is awake for 16 hours a day that means you would only need to drink about 6 ounces every hour. Stay away from carbonated beverages especially the diet variety. The stuff they use to make diet pop is poison and will actually trick your body into staying fat.

Remember, when you learn how to lose weight on the thighs you are learning how to improve the rest of your body as well. If you are scale averse then don’t use one. Feel the weight loss in the fit of your clothes, see the changes in your body in the mirror. Losing weight and then maintaining to keep it off should be a lifelong endeavour. Making some simple daily lifestyle changes especially in diet and exercise can go a long way in helping you reach your weight loss goals. So start today and watch the new you emerge.

If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment and we’ll get back to you. Thanks for reading.

Take This Very Seriously

Posted by Nigel Jeal | Posted in Articles, Fitness | Posted on 04-09-2012-05-2008

By Craig Ballantyne, CTT
Certified Turbulence Trainer

Earlier today I was invited to do another Tough Mudder.

I laughed. I’m done with those.

Listen, they are fun and rewarding, don’t get me wrong.

But I’ve done two and training for them/recovering from them are getting in the way of my REAL goals.

If life is getting in the way of your REAL GOALS, you know how I feel, right?

Time to prioritize.

There are only 4 months left in 2012. About 120 days. Not much time to reach those big goals you set on back on January 1st, 2012.

Fortunately, I have the solution for you.

The 15th Turbulence Training Transformation Contest starts TODAY and ends in December. This is the SPARK you need to change your body and your life.

What do you have left in you for 2012?

What is there still to accomplish?

Think dammit, and take this very, very seriously.

This is your life. And “life is not a dress rehearsal”, as author Rose Tremain once said.

Stop paying lip service to your goals. Stop daydreaming about your dreams.

Start living as if they really mattered. Today. Right NOW.

“We are entering the last few months of 2012. That means if you lose 1-2 lbs on average of fat per week, you could be as much as 32 lbs lighter by Christmas. Now that’s a cool Christmas gift to yourself. Something to think about.” – Mike Whitfield, Certified Turbulence Trainer

We are running out of time in 2012, but…

…on the other hand, ANYONE can commit to 12 weeks of transformation. It’s ONLY 0.3% of your life. And surely you can commit to 0.3% of your life to completely transform your body and your life, right?

When you look at it that way, it’s simple. Fat loss is not easy, but it IS simple when you follow a proven plan.

Join the 15th TT Transformation Contest and you could even win $1000 of my money just for losing your belly fat, getting ripped abs, and sculpting your arms.

Imagine…just 12 weeks from now, you’re leaner, healthier, more energetic, sexier, more confident, and in line for a chance to get $1000 from me. Pretty cool, huh?

That would make for best Christmas ever. Even better than that time you got a BB gun and almost shot someone’s eye out.

So seriously…

Stop paying lip service to your goals. Stop daydreaming about your dreams.

Start living as if they really mattered. Today. Right NOW.

Let’s do this.

Let’s TRANSFORM your body and life. Starting today.

I need you. I need you to be part of my 1 Million Transformation Mission because I’m running out of time on my goals.

Weight Training For Fat Loss – How To Burn Calories Quickly

Posted by Nigel Jeal | Posted in Articles, Fitness | Posted on 31-08-2012-05-2008

There are many methods of weight training for fat loss. By adding weight training to your exercise program, you can increase the fat loss you achieve. Weight training helps you to burn calories, boosts your metabolism, and helps your body burn fat more efficiently throughout the day. Weight training can be a great way to step up your workout, build muscle, and increase fat loss.

Weight training burns calories as you exercise. The physical exertion and strain on your muscles is a great way to burn calories that would otherwise be stored as fat. Excess calories can be burned quickly and efficiently as you lift weights, leading to increased fitness, strength, and loss of excess body fat.

Weight training for fat loss boosts your metabolism, as well. Muscle is more efficient than fat. Adding muscle to your body increases the amount of calories you burn while resting – your resting metabolic rate is raised. Adding muscle through weight training is a great way to ensure that you burn more fat, even while you’re sleeping or watching TV. It doesn’t get much better than that!

Weight training continues to burn fat after your workout is over. For several hours, even an entire day, after your workout, your body is breaking down and rebuilding muscle. This takes energy to do, and increases your metabolism. Building muscle mass leads to more efficient energy use, and a higher metabolism in general. Adding muscle helps you to burn excess calories more efficiently throughout your day. If you truly want to burn fat while you rest, then weight training is for you.

When it comes to losing your last 10 pounds, then you need hard-to-your-core workouts.

Designed with advanced fat loss and muscle gains in mind, the TT Hardcore workout system uses intense training techniques designed to get you rapid fat burning results.

In fact, you’re going get ripped with these classics.

But beware…these Hardcore workouts are for ADVANCED users only.

With challenging barbell complexes, difficult bodyweight exercises, awesome 5×5 trisets, and my plateau-busting adrenaline-style intervals, you’ll recruit maximum muscle to burn mega-calories during and after training.

Needless to say, ONLY use these programs IF you’re advanced and ready for hyper-fat burning results.

Stubborn fat simply doesn’t stand a chance against these Hardcore workout routines.

Plus, you’re going to get a bonus workout, one of my Trademarked Metabolic Resistance Training programs – TT MRT 2K12.

It includes what I call Muscle-Metabolic Resistance Training, or M-MRT for short.

By borrowing some squeezing techniques bodybuilding (yes, bodybuilding!), your workouts will be even better, more intense, and more effective for building muscle and burning fat at the SAME time.

You’ll use NEW exercise tempos, which force your body to train with MORE intensity for greater muscles exhaustion.

PLUS, we’ll use the 90% rep technique combined with the squeezing techniques to dramatically increase the amount of fat-burning, muscle building tension.

I’ll be honest, I’ve been training for over 20 years and I can’t ever remember my legs feeling exactly like they did after workout A in this program. Enjoy.

Add it all up and that’s where the M-MRT kicks into your program and completely changes the dynamics of the workout. Basically, you’ll burn way more fat with this program, while building lean, sexy muscle at the same time.

It’s the end of your belly fat as we know it.
