Home Workouts and Meathead Training and TT Bootcamp Previews

Just finished putting together next Friday morning's bootcamp workouts for the 3rd Turbulence Training Summit in San Diego.

Attendees are going to get a great workout in just 30 minutes. We have 3 groups of 50 trainers that we need to get through in 90 minutes because we have a lot of content to get through over the rest of the day. We've almost tripled our attendance over last year.

And on the Saturday morning, June 22nd, the world-famous @martinrooney1 will be kicking butts in the bootcamps and then doing a 90-minute high-energy presentation to our group. Really excited for the weekend.

I'll share the workouts next week!

My #Meathead training today: Bench, row, pullups, close-grip pushups.

My buddy Dan Long's got 3 TRX exercises that are awesome for tightening and raising your butt. The second one looks weird, but it's great:

You know what else is great?

Here's proof:

"I just finished up the Home Workout Revolution 12 week program. Really enjoyed it. I'm really happy with the fat loss I was able to get during that time. I felt like my diet was pretty good but not great. I'm still working on that. I don't know how much bf% I lost during that time, but I would guess 5-6%. My starting weight was 162 lbs and my ending weight was 154 lbs. So I lost 8 pounds in 12 weeks while maintaining my muscle and toning some I think. Overall I'm really happy." – Jim Talbert

And more proof:
From last month's ETR LiveCast...follow along with the bouncing Craig in the 4-minute Rep Max workout...Hilarity ensues!

Today's Kickbutt Plan:
One of the biggest mistakes people make is not having a plan. That leads to wasted time (“what should I do today”) and no results.

30 minute challenge: Sit down and plan out your complete body transformation or at least your next 4-8 weeks of training – including everything from end goals, to getting started with nutrition changes, to overcoming all of the obstacles in your way. Planning will make a huge impact on actually achieving your goals.

5 Ways to Cut Your Workout Time

Do you know the 2 biggest reasons men and women stop exercising?

1) Lack of time
2) Lack of motivation

Let's tackle "Lack of Time" today with 5 ways you can get your
workouts done faster. After all, no one should spend more than 50
minutes in the gym.

Here are 5 ways to cut time from your workouts.

a) Supersets

I use "non-competing" superset. This means, choose two exercises
for different muscle groups - and preferably completely opposite
movements. For example, choose a push and a pull. That way, one
muscle group rests while the other works...and you cut the rest
time you need between sets.

b) Choose a better warm-up strategy

Don't waste 10 minutes walking on the treadmill. Instead, use a
total body circuit of bodyweight exercises as a general warm-up, and
then move directly into specific warm-up sets for your first two
exercises.

c) Pair dumbbell and bodyweight exercises together in your
supersets

This saves you time at home (you don't need to change the dumbbell
weight between exercises) and in the gym (you don't need to fight
for 2 sets of dumbbells).

d) Choose Intervals over slow cardio

The latest research shows more weight loss when people use
intervals, and intervals take half as long to do.

e) Limit the use of isolation exercises

Pick multi-muscle exercises, such as squats, pulls, pushes, and
rows. If you have time, you can squeeze in some dropsets for arms
and shoulders if you want. However, if you only have 3 sessions of
45 minutes per week, isolation exercises must be the first to go.

In addition, don't spend more than 10 minutes per week on direct ab
training. It's not efficient and won't give you rock hard abs
alone.

PS - Don't know where to start?

If you are a beginner, start by reading Dr. Mohr's nutrition
guidelines...eating properly will be the biggest factor in your
early success.

Beginners should also start with the Introductory TT workouts to
prepare their muscles for the upcoming intense training.

For others, it's best to start with the Intermediate Level TT
workouts. If those aren't enough of a challenge, you can move onto
the Original TT workout and follow the 16-week advanced program
right through.

If at any time you need a break, try the TT Bodyweight 4-week plan.

And then finish off with the TT Fusion Fat Loss program followed by
the 30-day Maximum Fat Loss program to cap off a full 24 weeks of
Advanced TT fat loss workouts.

After that, choose between the TT for Women or TT for Muscle
programs to help put the finishing touches on your physique. All of
these are included as bonuses with Turbulence Training.
