1 simple workout change proven to increase calorie burning

The other day I mentioned a new research study proving the calorie burning power of supersets, and today I want to share it with you.

It comes from Syracuse University, and was published in the Journal of Strength & Conditioning Research.

The scientists wanted to see if Superset training - like that found in Turbulence Training - would burn more calories than traditional resistance training (that's the kind you might be doing now).

The "guinea pigs" in the study were 10 young men, and the subjects did 2 workouts separated by at least 7 days.

The workout consisted of 4 sets of 6 exercises, and they did 10 reps per exercise. Pretty standard program.

But in one condition, the subjects did the exercises in supersets, while on the other day they did them like you'd see in a bodybuilding magazine (that's the less effective way, as you'll see in a moment).

The researchers found that the superset workout burned almost 30% more calories per minute than the traditional resistance training workouts.

30% more calories!

Plus, the researcher also discovered that the superset workout burned more calories during the "post-exercise" period (that means supersets will help you burn more calories while you recover from the workout).

The final conclusion from the scientists is a testimonial to Turbulence Training:

Incorporating supersets may benefit exercisers attempting to increase calorie burning in a limited amount of exercise time.


So there you go. More scientific proof that the Turbulence Training System is set-up to maximize calorie burning and fat loss.

Of course, the TT program was "only" 11 years ahead of this study, but I don't mind researchers confirming what all TT success stories already know, and that is: Turbulence Training works better than traditional workouts and cardio.

But listen, I understand you still might be skeptical, so I've arranged for you to have a 21-day trial period of Turbulence

You get to use the entire program and have access to the TT Member's area for 3 full weeks for less than 5 bucks.

I promise Turbulence Training will work better than ANYTHING you've ever tried before.

Just playing the devil's advocate, is the 30% gain per minute offset by the length of the superset workout?

No. They did the same amount of work, just in less time.

your use of "efficient" is slightly relative. some people (esp us hardgainers) dont WANT to burn 30% more calories during our strength training. It's hard enough to put on muscle mass, i'll take my rest peroids, thank you.
