Turbulence Training – Lose Pounds and Inches and Feel Great

It;s been a while since I’ve posted any thoughts on my weight loss program. I am making progress, down a few pounds, and thanks to the Turbulence Training program, I am losing weight.

Obviously exercise is good, because it helps burn calories and it makes you feel better. But simple exercise alone is not enough. You must exercise “smart”. As discussed in my article on the 3,500 calorie weight loss challenge, a pound of fat is the equivalent of about 3,500 calories, meaning you need to burn 3,500 calories to lose a pound of fat. You would need to walk for seven and a half hours to burn 3,500 calories. That’s not easy, and it’s not smart.

So what’s the smart way to lose weight through exercise?

Weight training, also known as Turbulence Training.

Weight training can be done in a relatively short period of time (30 minutes two or three times per week), and it’s effective because it helps you build muscle. We all know that muscle weighs more than fat, because it’s more dense, but muscle also needs more energy to grow and survive. Energy is another word for calories, and it’s a simple equation: the more muscle mass you have, the more calories you burn, even when you are not exercising! And, it works equally well for men and women.

Mr. Ballantyne is a world-renowned Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), and author articles in magazines such as Men’s Health, Men’s Fitness, Oxygen, Maximum Fitness, and Muscle and Fitness Hers, so he knows what he’s talking about.



The Turbulence Training System is designed to burn fat in the least amount of time. And guess what: it works. I can tell you from personal experience that weight training is fun, quick, and effective.

After being on the Turbulence Training program for two months, I have lost some pounds, but more importantly I have lost “inches”, and I feel better. If you want an effective weight loss program, read more about Turbulence Training.
