1 Answer for the Same Weight Loss Question

Today I did 2 good QnA sessions on the TT and ETR FB pages. Please check them out.

Lessons from the TT version...

This QnA shows what is on the mind of so many readers..."how to lose weight with cardio?"

It's the same question asked 4 different ways below...and it deserves the same answer. Amazingly, so many people still believe that cardio is the answer...but the real answer, while simple, has nothing to do with cardio. You don't need equipment, you can do it at home, and it tones weight loss plateaus...overcomes frustration...and does not require long cardio.

The questions:
I am 50 years old and have 50 pounds to lose. Is it best to change my eating habits and lose weight first, then start working out, or do it all at once?

I am at a frustrated level...I workout 4 times a week cardio and light lifting but the scale keeps going up....should I jusy be concentrating on cardio to burn and then tone later?

Best way to tone total body, cardio or calisthenics

Weight plateaus for last 3 months, changed up my cardio still doing weights every other day, what else can I do??

The answer is always:

Here's the perfect plan: You must combine diet with total body metabolic resistance training for the perfect 1-2 punch for losing belly fat. Grab these... 1) FREE meal plans: and 2) And get these workouts: (bodyweight only) 


There was one other great question from Rebecca:

Q: I'm a runner who wants to include more weight work into my routine. What is the best balance between running and weights?

Two strength sessions per week of 5 main exercises - Squat, push, pull, single-leg (like a reverse lunge), and a total body ab exercise (like mountain climbers, plank, or side plank). 1-2 sets of 8-12 reps is enough. Run three times per week. One moderate, one interval session, one long session on the weekend. And include 10-20 minutes of yoga after one or both strength training workouts.

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:

TODAY is the first day of the rest of your life. Don't dwell on past mistakes because that will get you nowhere. Instead, focus on what you can and WILL do today, tomorrow, and the rest of your life, and all of the great things that will happen because of your actions. Don't wait for the 'time to be right' (i.e. until it's too late) to take action on your goals. If there's something you really want to do - if there is a dream body you want to achieve or a change in life you need – then find a way to do it now. Take little steps, make bigger bets, and celebrate each victory, great and small. Never give up on what is important to YOU.

Push on,

Craig Ballantyne, CTT

PS - I get this one other question all the time...

...and wanted to show you the main differences between Turbulence Training and my HWR bodyweight only program
