Fat Loss Q'n'A
Most people don't know that you can save time and your hard-earned pay by working out in the comfort of your own home. With Turbulence Training, you can avoid the hassles of commercial gyms (i.e. pushy sales people, smelly patrons, disgusting locker rooms, crowded parking lots, and out-of-the-way drives) while losing fat and boosting your metabolism with home-gym workouts.
And here are a few other common weight loss questions to help you choose the right approach to fat loss.
Q: I'm suffering through a major fat loss plateau right now. Will this help?
Some of the major reasons for fat loss plateaus include:
- Using the same workouts over and over and over again for extendedperiods of time.
- Not including enough high-intensity strength training and
- And choosing inefficient isolation, machine-based exercises
instead of standing, multi-muscle exercises.
The Turbulence Training workouts have been designed with variety,intensity, and efficiency in mind so that you get more results in less time.
Your workout programs will change every 4 weeks, and you'll use only exercises that train multiple muscle groups at the same time - thus burning more energy, and fat, with each repetition.
By changing the training intensity of your workouts, as well as
using a variety of repetition ranges for your lifting, and
including interval training, I guarantee that you will leave your
fat loss plateaus in the dust.
Q: I'm 50 years old, and no longer involved in sports. But I stay active with walking, biking and I even lift weights. But I want to lose my love handles. Is this program for me or is too intense?
Thanks for your email and question. We've had clients in their 70's use Turbulence Training, not too mention the dozens of men and women in their 50's and 60's that have used the program.
So you certainly are a candidate for Turbulence Training, as long as your doctor has cleared you for exercise of course.
At 50 years young, you've got a long and healthy life in front of
you. But I also know that you don't intend to slow down with age. You've got things to do and people to see, and that's why you are probably like any other age group...and you want to get in and out of the gym as quickly as possible. So the three Turbulence Training workouts per week should be perfect for your lifestyle.
I guarantee that every age group, from young to old, will be
challenged and entertained by the variety of bodyweight exercises. In fact, I bet you'll get a real kick out of doing exercises from your youth again.
I look forward to hearing how you like the workouts, and let me
know how many pushups you can do!
Q: Craig, I weigh over 250 pounds. Heck, it's a lot closer to 300 pounds. I haven't really exercised in a while either, but I feel pretty good otherwise. No aches or pains. Can I still do your Turbulence Training program? Will I be able to do interval training?
This is a really popular question. The good news is that I've
worked personally with many men that are over the 300 pound mark, and we've successfully incorporated the Turbulence Training principles into their workouts.
You just have to:
- Get clearance from your doctor that you are ready to start an
- Start with the introductory and beginner Turbulence Training
I include beginner level workouts in all of my manuals. There are step-by-step guidelines on how to get started, including a
day-by-day 21-quick start guideline for beginners. It will show you how to turn your unhealthy lifestyle around in just three weeks.
As for the interval training, please remember this: It is all
relative. You don't have to run sprints up a hill in order to call
your workout an interval workout.
You might simply increase your treadmill walking speed from 3.3mph to 3.6mph for 1 minute and then drop it back down. Those are the correct intervals for your relative fitness level. As you improve, you will be able to work harder. But never worry about comparing yourself to others.
Also, Dr. Chris Mohr, Ph.D., has included specific calorie and
protein recommendations for overweight individuals. The TT Fat Loss Nutrition Guidelines will keep you on track for fat loss in 2007.
Q: Has your Turbulence Training program worked for women, or is it just for male fat loss? I want a program that works on my butt, not just my biceps. Help!
Don't worry, the Turbulence Training program is not gender
specific. All of the great exercises that are in the program will
work on the muscle groups that both men and women want to focus on.
After all, who doesn't want a firmer butt, flatter abs, and a
Best of all, the efficient and effective exercise group that I
mentioned earlier includes squats, lunges, presses, and rows. These exercises are essential for both men and women, and will give you the total package regardless of gender.
And don't forget, the scientifically-proven Turbulence Training workout manual has used by hundreds of women to burn fat and sculpt their body.
