Kettlebells and TRX training in the backyard

Today's backyard workout was awesome, using my TRX and KBs. I have a 44lb, 2x53lbs, and a 70lb kettlebell.

I did KB Swings, KB Overhead Press, TRX Row, Broad Jumps, KB Front Squat, KB close-grip pushup, TRX Rear-Fly, Power Wheel Rollout.

Then time for a little FB QnA:

Q: You only have 15-30 minutes to work out but have access to a gym with most of the key "tools" (oly bars + plates, dumbbells, pullup bar, etc.). What do you do?

Turbulence Training for fat loss or muscle building. Watch for the new TT 2.0 coming out in September with follow-along workout videos and deluxe package of "Bodypart Blitz" workouts! All the new TT workouts are MRT only, no intervals, and under 30 minutes, yet incredibly challenging and effective.

 Folks that purchased the original Turbulence Training program from will receive the new manual for free, and a special super-discount on the videos. Everyone else will receive a limited time discount on the new product from Sept. 3-5.

Q: When training specifically for fat loss and doing metabolic conditioning how many days a week do you suggest to train?

3-4 days is enough. Overuse injuries occur with more training. Remember the key for fat loss is diet!

Similar Q: Have been doing hard interval runs 3 times/week. Too much? Should I add a couple of bodyweight sessions?

Depends on the volume of training you are doing. There's nothing wrong with a bike session in there too, depending on the purpose of your interval training.

Q: What are your favorite meals?

Steak, burgers (no bun), and lots of fish these days, and I always eat 3 servings of vegetables at each meal.
For dessert, try this:
