Q: How much
fat can I lose with Turbulence Training?
short answer is, ?a lot?.
But to be more specific, you
should be able to lose one pound of body fat each week (in addition
to following sound fat loss nutritional practices). At the same
time, you should expect to gain or maintain muscle.
Turbulence Training for Fat Loss gives you at least 16 weeks
of fat-blasting workouts, so expect a two-digit fat loss by the time
you get through the program.
Q: Why should I only use
each version of Turbulence Training for 4
We want to keep the element of variety
in the training program to achieve consistent fat loss. Nothing,
except poor eating, halts fat loss like staying on a training
program for too long. By switching it up on a frequent basis, you?ll
avoid fat loss plateaus and keep making gains in strength and
fitness at the same time.

Training? I don?t want to bulk up.

muscle. So by using the Turbulence Training for Nutrition

not bulk up when you do the strength training exercises (which are
essential for boosting your metabolism ? to burn even more

Q: What repetition range is best for fat
Despite the common belief that high-reps
are best for fat loss, research has shown that performing multiple
sets of lower reps is more effective for burning calories and fat.
In the Turbulence Training workouts, you?ll use 6-8 reps per
set for most exercises, and this will give you the most ?bang for
your fat loss buck?. Using a variety of repetitions trains the
muscle through the full range of metabolism-boosting stimuli. If
combined with proper nutrition, this approach offers the greatest
opportunity for growth.
Q: Why do the Turbulence
Training workouts use Supersets?
exercises together in Supersets (where you perform two exercises
back to back without rest), you are able to get more work done in
That gives you two benefits. First, you get the
workout done in half the time. And second, you get more results in
less time, plus you can do more work. Supersets are the way to go,
and that? why they are the cornerstone of the Turbulence Training
Q: When is the best time to
In general, there is no best time to
workout. A guy that trains in the afternoon should get the same
results as a guy that trains in the morning, all other things being
equal (i.e. nutrition, workout intensity, etc.).
most important considerations for determining your workout time are
a) You are able to train with sufficient intensity
You are able to train consistently
Q: I don?t have a
full hour to workout. Can I still use the
Absolutely. First off, even if you
follow the full Turbulence Training workout plan, you?ll be done in
less than 45 minutes. And second, if you have less time than that,
simply reduce the number of sets performed for each exercise. You?ll
still get the majority of the benefits by doing as little as one set
of each exercise ? and you?ll get the workout done in even less
Q: Can anyone use Turbulence
Adult men and women of all ages have
achieved success with Turbulence Training. We do recommend however,
that you check with your doctor and have a full physical examination
prior to starting a new exercise regimen if you meet any of the
