Turbulence Training Seminar & Bodyweight Cardio Special

Sorry that you missed the amazing, 1st Ever Turbulence Training this weekend. I met dozens of TT Members from as far away as California who came all the way to Toronto to discover the TT bodyweight fat burning secrets.

My favorite part of the day was sharing the behind-the-scenes details on the Bodyweight Cardio programs. I also spoke with several folks who wanted a special deal on the Ultimate Bodyweight DVD package, so I've decided to knock off $100 from the regular price.

Looks like a good worik out, but what is a Y-Squat, Cross Crawl,
Stability Ball Hip Extension,
Stability Ball Jackknife, Mountain Climber, Wall Squat Hold, Inverted Row, Elevated Pushup etc. Please explain each exercise or have a link describing them. I will be trying this program but will have problems as I do not knwo a lot of them. Craig

All of those exercises will come up in a google search.

The only one there may be some confusion about is the "Elevated Pushup". With Craig's version you put one hand on the floor and the other on something elevated about 4-5 inches off the floor (a yoga block, a piece of wood, etc.) and perform a regular pushup. You can also do it on your knees if necessary.

Craig, I recently tore my pectoral tendon while bench pressing; it completely ruptured and tore away from its insertion point on my right humerus, and I had it surgically repaired by a very good ortho doc. I know it will be at least 6 months before I can consider doing a pushup but have you had any experience with this type of injury in training any of your atheletes? I truly want to regain my full strength and function, regardless of how long it takes, and I would like to know of your experience with this type of injury. Thank you kindly.

Hey BKD!

I'm sorry, I don't do much in the rehab scene. I would look up Bill Hartman and Mike Robertson for help on that!

Almost all of the exercises are explained in Craig's youtube channel cbathletics ( So you can look 'em up there.

And thanks very much Craig for posting the Phase1 of the bodyweight manual). I was looking for this for a long time. Looking forward to read the later phases in the coming posts. Thanks again!!
