Do me a favor and then do this circuit workout

Hey, happy weekend! Can I ask you to do me one quick favor before I give you an awesome tip to cut your workout time?

Thanks so much (in advance)!

Here’s the deal…the 17th TT Transformation Contest just wrapped up and now it’s your chance to choose who wins my $$$. Please vote for the hard working men and women right here: 

These are amazing and incredibly inspiring stories, PLUS the men under 40 category is SUPER competitive. Voting will be open until

Tuesday night. Make sure you go through and vote for ALL four categories, too. Thanks so much.

Now I know what you’re thinking, “Will there be another Transformation Contest this year?”

YES, there will be a NEW Transformation Contest starting on Sunday, September 1st. The timing is perfect because the NEW Turbulence

Training 2.0 (with follow-along workout videos) will be released on Tuesday, September 3rd. Just wait until you see these workouts. Sixteen weeks of thirty minute thermogenic fat blasters.

And now…drum roll please, let’s talk about the #1 Weekend Workout Tip.

Maximize your time in the gym by using combo exercises. For example, here’s a 3 exercise workout that is really 6 exercises. But using them in combo format allows you to get more work done in less time.

    1A) Clean & Press (use barbell or dumbbell) or DB Squat-Press
    1B) Stability Ball or TRX Jackknife + Pushup
    1C) Pull-up or Chin-up with Knee-Up
        Do 6-12 reps per exercise.
        Rest as little as possible between exercises.
        Rest 1 minute at the end of the circuit.
        Repeat the circuit 2 times.

Using combo exercises cuts down on rest time and increases your conditioning. These exercises and workouts aren’t easy, but they get you in and out of the gym in less time so that you can enjoy more time in super-fun weekend activities.

Q: What is the ideal work to rest ratio for fat burning when doing intervals on a stationary bike ? I pedal for about 13 minutes with a 2 minute warm up and 2 minute cool down. Thanks.

There is no best interval length for fat loss. 30-30 is good, 60-60 is good, 45-45 is good too. Anything shorter than 30 is tough to do with the changes in resistance. Make sure to use interval training plus metabolic resistance training

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.
