Intense Bodyweight Workout

This week I'm taking a break from heavy barbell work to plan out a bunch of TT programs. And today ended up being a killer intense bodyweight workout - possibly harder than anything in my last 4-week program.

I actually felt a little sick after this...

Bodyweight Bodybuilding Workout A...lots of jumps, pullups, rows, bulgarian splits squats, dips, bodyweight triceps presses, 1 and 1/2 reps, and Vinny D. crash sets. 50 minutes of bodyweight insanity. TT Platinum Members will get this in December.

NOTE: Feeling sick/nauseous is not necessary in order to have a productive workout. And part of my nausea was due to eating/drinkiing too much before training...but mostly from a higher rep, higher volume bodyweight workout.

Here's the morning blender drink I over-consumed before training: 1 banana, raspberries, blueberries, spinach, almond milk, almond butter, walnuts, cacao nibs. poured some over oatmeal and almonds.

Overall, great workout and learning experience, you're going to love this one.

Of course, another reason to be a part of TT members is the social support.

In my experience, social support is the #1 key for success in sticking to a fitness program.

While the support can come from your spouse, sibling, child, parent, friend, neighbor, or co-worker, individuals have a better chance of sticking to an exercise program when they hold themselves accountable to a personal trainer or lifestyle coach. Don't try and do this on your own. Social support is important in your quest for fitness and fat loss.

I actually posted that quote on the Turbulence Training Facebook Fanpage last week, and I received this awesome reply from a TT user.

"Your training programs r the best. I needed to lose a few lbs and thought I would try it out. it was incredible. I lost 10 lbs in a month and did not really change my diet except to cut back on the sugar( which was hard to do for coffee) , It worked. No more 6 day per week workouts for me."
Don Held

That's pretty darn cool, I love getting feedback like that.

And here's something else I posted on the Fanpage today...

"Figure yourself out; spend some time in introspection" - Frank McKinney.

Brilliant idea for today...take 10-15 minutes for yourself to write down where you're headed for the rest of the year, and what plans you want you to accomplish in 2010 and then put in some action steps you need to follow to reach those goals.

Keep it simple and clear.

Is the life you're living worth what you are giving up to have it?

Are you doing what you want in life?

Are living the personal life that you want?

Are you doing enough of the little things that make you happy?

Are you spending enough time with the people that make you happy?

Are you making the best use of the limited time you have in your one lifetime?

Simple questions. Simple answers.

Make a simple plan.

Develop simple solutions.

To your success,


PS -  If you fall "off the wagon"...

...cut your losses, don't worry about it, and get right back on track. Immediately. It's minor damage that can be dealt with. Stay STRONG!
