Review: Craig Ballantyne’s Turbulence Training Program
Craig Ballantyne, creator of Turbulence Training, is a well-known strength and conditioning specialist whose material has appeared in such top fitness magazines as Men’s Health, Men’s Fitness, Oxygen as well as many others. His credentials are impeccable, and his reputation is secure. In other words, everyone in agreement…
Craig knows his stuff.
Drawing from his years of experience as a top trainer, his university studies, and his own personal experience, Craig has developed the Turbulence Training system. What’s turbulence training? Well, in a nutshell…
It’s a high intensity, low volume, quick workout that combines resistance training and interval training to lose bodyfat low and gain muscle (normally, it’s nearly impossible to accomplish both of these things at the same time!).
It’s about using the latest scientific research to ensure your time spent exercising is time spent most efficiently.
Before I continue, there are a couple of things that I should emphasize here…
1. Turbulence training is designed to be an extremely quick and efficient workout, designed to fit busy, active lifestyles. In other words, it’s ideal for people with little time. Only 3 30-45 minute workouts a week are required for optimal performance. It can even be performed at home without gym equipment, or alternatively, very rudimentary gym equipment.
2. Turbulence training is easily manipulated for weight loss or muscle gain — depending on your unique needs.
3. Although turbulence training is defined as a “high intensity” quick workout, the thing I like most about this is that “intensity” in this case, is highly subjective. In other words, you define “intensity” according to your own level of fitness. This ensure turbulence training is ideal for everyone, even total beginners, who will begin with the “Introductory Level Turbulence Training.” Most high intensity workouts are really only ideal for people who are already fit.
Workouts consist of a 5 minute warm up, followed by 15-20 minutes of strength training (consisting of three non-competing supersets) following by 15-20 minutes of interval training.
Another thing that is emphasized in Craig’s program is the importance of varying your workout regularly. The body becomes stagnant very quickly, Craig says, and the only way around this is to keep “shaking things up.” So the workout will change every two to 4 weeks, depending on your level of fitness.
Craig’s Turbulence Training also contains a contract — basically, your pledge to being committed to the program. It also contains nutritional tips, an extensive Q&A section, a 21-Healthy Habit Building Plan, plus the complete Turbulence Training workouts for beginner, intermediate and advanced level individuals.
And of you’re new to working out, no worries. Every single exercise featured in this publication is explained in detail, complete with photos.
In fact, the entire Turbulence Training is pretty extensive (as well as impressive). For those who prefer listening to reading, many of the basics of Craig’s program can be gleaned from the 1-hour of audio files that accompany this package. There’s also a half dozen or so bonus files, including one on hard-core fat loss, as well as a special nutrition manual.
So is Turbulence Training right for you?
Well, if you’re…
- stuck in a rut
- exceedingly time pressed
- ready to try something different
Or you’ve “hit a wall” with your 1980’s era workout…
… then I suspect this may well be something you wish to investigate. If you’re in the slightest bit curious, I recommend you look closely at Craig’s program. I was very impressed with both the package and the information contained therein. For the money, it’s a bargain. And remember…
Craig Ballantyne’s Turbulence Training is backed by a 8-week money back guarantee. And this is a real guarantee… if unsatisfied, you will receive your money back, no “ifs,” “ands,” or “buts.” So you really don’t have much to lose.
