He has had sports training articles and workouts published in popular health and fitness magazines including Men’s Fitness, Oxygen, Men’s Health and Maximum Fitness. On the Turbulence Training website, Craig states that he helps “busy men and women lose fat, gain muscle, and get lean in as little time as possible.”
The main principle that is the driving force behind the Turbulence Training for Fat Loss program is that long, endurance-oriented cardio sessions are ineffective and boring. Short, strength training workouts and short, intense interval-cardio workouts comprise the entire Turbulence Training program. There are no low-intensity, hour-long, cardiovascular sessions.
THE INTERVAL WORKOUTS
Interval training is an intense form of cardiovascular training. You alternate periods of intense exercise with periods of an easier exercise. For example, you could sprint for 30 seconds followed by 90 seconds of jogging. For the Turbulence Training program, Ballantyne recommends that you use a recumbent bike for the interval workouts; however, he does state you can use any form of cardio activity including running and jumping rope. The interval workouts are less than 20 minutes, including a warm-up and cool-down. You do these workouts 3 to 4 times per week, usually after your strength workout.
THE STRENGTH WORKOUTS
You do a strength workout three days per week, alternating workouts A and B. The workouts are structured in supersets — you complete one exercise immediately followed by a second exercise with no rest. After each superset, you rest 1 minute, completing each superset three times. Each set is usually between 8 and 15 repetitions, depending on the exercise. The Turbulence Training workouts consist of compound exercises such as squats, push-ups, planks, leg curls and step-ups.
The basic Turbulence Training program is for both men and women. It also includes an introductory program for beginner exercisers, an intermediate and an advanced program. There are several other bonus Turbulence Training workouts including an abdominal program, men-only program and a women-only program. Different bonuses are offered depending on when you purchase Turbulence Training for Fat Loss.
