3 Fat Burning Medicine Ball Workouts for You!


Men's Health fat loss expert Craig Ballantyne just told me about two
new cool Medicine Ball Videos he filmed, PLUS three new fat burning
medicine ball workouts you can do at home.

Medicine ball workouts sure are great when you don't have time to
go to the gym, so they are perfect for the busy holiday season.

You can do all three of his new TT Medicine Ball workouts in 10-25
minutes at home, in your bedroom, or even in your office. All you
need is a simple medicine ball, although a soccer ball or stability
ball will work for most of the exercises as well.

In Workout A, you'll do 3-4 supersets of medicine ball exercises
followed "interval training" with this cool exercise called Power

In Workout B, you'll do more advanced strength training exercises
with the medicine ball, and finish off with med ball burpees as
your interval training.

Finally, Workout C is a 10 exercise med ball circuit where you'll
go back to back to back with med ball exercises and no rest. You
can do that circuit up to three times.

With over 25 different and unique medicine ball exercises to help
you burn fat during busy times without going to the gym or using
fancy, bulky equipment, you'll do fun supersets and challenging
circuits, with every single exercise working multiple muscle groups
- including your abs.

So if you have family coming over, or a work Christmas function all
night, you can still do a workout at home with just the ball. It's
fast, fun, and effective.

No ball? Put it on your Christmas list!

Once you get access to the member's area, go to the TT Workout of
the Month area to download the Med Ball program.

If you want a crack at these TT Med Ball workouts, you'll get free
access to the program in the TT Member's area when you grab your
copy of Turbulence Training.

Why Craig Ballantyne Says 3 Reasons to Avoid Elliptical Machines!

Craig Ballantyne of Turbulence Training wrote this guest article today... in fact, Craig said it was very controversial and made some folks mad at him! After you read this article... be sure to leave a comment or two what YOU think about it!

-- Matt --

The latest Men's Health magazine comes down on elliptical machines hard.

Now I know elliptical machines are often the only option for people with bad knees, but if your knees are healthy, think twice before using the elliptical machine for these three reasons.

First, on page 52 of the December, 2008 issue, Men's Health warns, "Never trust elliptical machines".

They quote a study that found elliptical machines over-estimated the number of calories burned in a workout by 31%!


So if your "elliptical cardio workout" burned 400 calories, the truth is you really burned closer to only 300 calories.

Second, later in the Dec. issue, Men's Health magazine interviewed Biggest Loser contestant Ed Brantley. Ed lost 73 pounds on the show, but had this to say about elliptical machines, "I hated the elliptical. It was too easy, I didn't feel like I was doing anything."

Exactly. I couldn't have said it better myself.

But that's EXACTLY why elliptical machines are so popular...

You see, the third reason elliptical machines are inferior for fat loss is because they fail my "human nature" test.

Put it this way...

Take 100 people and put them in a gym with 100 treadmills and 100 elliptical machines.

Tell them they have to exercise for 30 minutes at a hard pace, and they have the choice to use either the treadmill or the elliptical.

Guess where 90% of folks are going?

The elliptical!


Because it is human nature to take the EASY WAY out. And that is why elliptical machines are so busy at the gym and you rarely see anyone doing intervals on a treadmill or bodyweight circuits in the corner of the gym.

Often I see folks using the elliptical machine only to say they "worked out", but without getting any REAL work done.

So if you are stuck at a fat loss plateau, and you've been counting on the elliptical machine to help you out, then forget it.

To burn fat and get more out of your workouts, do interval training outside, on a bike or treadmill, or with kettlebell exercises or bodyweight circuits.

These are all better options in your fight against the fat,

The God-Awful Truth About Cellulite... By Joey Atlas

The God-Awful Truth About Cellulite... By Joey Atlas

Do you know this type of woman?

She looks great in her 'sexy jeans... She looks amazing in a form fitted skirt... and she actually looks like a 'hottie' in her workout gear... But when she's naked - she can't stand to look at her trouble spots in the mirror because of her cellulite...

A bikini is out of the question... the short little dress won't see the light of day... and her man is only allowed to "see her" with the lights off...

She doesn't know why she has it. She's heard so many different 'theories'. And she's wasted hundreds, if not, thousands on supposed 'cellulite treatments' - only to find more disappointment and frustration when her cellulite got worse, instead of better...

She may have even tried "the gym thing" - doing the same routine every other members does - again only to find the cellulite is still there...

She loves her weight, her size and even her shape... All she wants is to be cellulite free...

Truth be told there is only one proven way to get rid of cellulite. And yes, it is 'exercise' - but it's not just any old fitness routine... The effective way to banish cellulite is with a specifically structured, laser-targeted cellulite reduction exercise program.

In order for the program to deliver the desired results, it must include these six principles called, R.E.D.U.C.E.


1 - Replace all 'weight and machine' lower body exercises with bodyweight exercises -- this may seem counter-intuitive to the mainstream 'fitness' approach to cellulite reduction - but its the main reason why it actually works...
2 - Emphasize the slowness of each repetition - This allows the whole muscle to be involved and properly engaged in each exercise - a key to lower body cellulite reduction
3 - Don't get caught up in the 'No pain - no gain' mentality -- this concept forces women to think "doing more is better" which is not the case. This actually prohibits the desired result of cellulite reduction and this is also where exercise related injuries occur...
4 - Utilize 'items' in your home for a complete lower body, anti-cellulite exercise program -- items such as a cushioned chair or couch, a firm ottoman, and a pantry step stool are ideal...
5 - Concentrate on moving from one exercise to the next with no more than 20 seconds between sets -- this is an important element for the cellulite reduction effect...
6 - Expect visible cellulite reduction to start within 2 - 3 weeks if you get your lower body sessions in three times per week (some women can get away with just two sessions per week).

It is widely know that cellulite affects women of all ages, body types, and body weights.

Unfortunately this allows for a lot of unscrupulous marketers of 'hyped up' products, to take advantage of desperate and hopeful women. They employ sneaky advertising tactics that prey on the emotional pain of this large target market - bringing in hundreds of millions of dollars in profits year after year - WITHOUT delivering the promised results...

But even when a woman tries the 'exercise' approach to cellulite reduction - she usually falls victim of simply not being on a cellulite-specific exercise program... Hence perpetuating her constant battle with all the ways her cellulite affects her daily life, attitude and happiness...

If you've "tried everything" with no results to show for your efforts -take a close look at your exercise program (if you are on one right now) and see how you can incorporate the principles of R.E.D.U.C.E. outlined above.

Most of all just be aware that the only way to get rid of the 'orange peel' look of your 'problem zones' is by proper stimulation of the muscles directly beneath your cellulite areas - not with some 'bodybuilder' routine, not with a magical rub-on cream and not with a vibrating toxin releasing massage treatment.
