5 exercises better than reading while doing cardio

Shape magazine recently made a shocking statement. According to their scientists, when you do a workout on the elliptical machine that says you burned 400 calories, the TRUTH is that you burned only 300 calories.
 
The elliptical overestimates your calorie burn by about 30%. 
 
No wonder cardio doesn't work for fat loss. The machines LIE to you.
 
I hope you're not making that one big mistake and trusting cardio machines to help you lose weight. It's literally a big fat lie if you are.
Even worse is when I see people reading while doing 'cardio'. Listen, I'm sorry, but you can't expect results if your workout involves reading. Tell that to everyone at your gym!

You are much better off going to a Celebrity Trainer, like Mikey Whitfield, who has become famous for his Finisher workouts and unique alternative exercises that require NO-equipment. Mikey was the 2012 TT Trainer of the Year and I asked Mikey for some fat burning tips today.

While the mainstream fitness media still insists that aerobic
exercise is a great way to lose weight, Turbulence Training users
know that interval training is the better way to burn body fat.

Still not convinced?

A recent study published by the North American Association for the
Study of Obesity, subjects aged 40 to 75 were instructed to do 60
minutes of aerobic exercise per day for 6 days per week for an
entire year.

Given the amount of exercise, you'd expect weight losses of 20, 30
pounds, or more, right?

Well, the surprise findings showed the average fat loss for female
subjects was only 4 pounds for the entire year, while men lost 6.6
pounds of fat over the year. That's over 300 hours of aerobic
exercise just to lose a measly 6 pounds of blubber. Not time well
spent, in my opinion.

So what's the better way? Stick with Turbulence Training, using
interval training and strength training to get better bodysculpting
results. With intervals, you'll achieve more fat burning results in
less workout time.

The next time you are out exercising, perform a session of interval
training. If you are walking or running outside, find an incline
that can challenge you for 60 seconds, then walk down for 60-120
seconds, and repeat up to 6 times.

If you walk or run on a treadmill, adjust the incline or speed to
safely increase the challenge for 60 seconds, then return to the
normal pace for 60-120 seconds, and repeat up to 6 times.

You can also use a rowing machine, bicycle or stationary bike, or
even an elliptical machine to do intervals.

But whatever you do, stay away from boring, ineffective cardio
exercise workouts and stick with Turbulence Training for your fat
burning program.

been doing the TT for Fat Loss Workouts and after 5 months of

"Turbulence Training makes so much sense and I really enjoy the
different workouts so never get bored. From an aussie that was
looking for something other than just another weight workout
with the same old moves this has been a real eye opener for me and
I have been telling my friends just how great the TT method is."
