The 6 Most Common Exercises That Are Wasting Your Time

1)    Long Cardio Sessions

Every day I see people follow the same routine consisting of a boring cardio exercise for long hours. The next day, they do the same workout again, at the same pace and exactly the same way. What happens the next day they come? Once again they carry out the exact same routine. They will continue doing the same workout, using the same equipment and doing the same thing over and over again. Of course, they also stay the same with no changes in their physique the next day, or the day after or after a month.

Even though they are getting no results, their bodies are not changing, but their workout will not change. It is so frustrating that I receive emails from some of these people and they tell me that they have been spending hours at the gym and they are still not getting any results. The result of not getting any results is that they increase the duration of their cardio. Usually trainers would say, just stay in the fat burning zone and increase the duration of workout and stick with it. You will lose weight.  Well, I am here to tell you otherwise!

You will not lose weight with the hours of cardio. No matter how many hours you spend at the gym, the extra hours of workout will not help. You will get nowhere in your weight loss program by doing extra cardio. The calorie burn being shown on the machine are not accurate and the elliptical will also get you nowhere, so stop torturing yourself.

2)  Spinning

Many people might not agree with me on this one and boast about the pounds they lost by spinning. Well, I am here to tell you your spinning workouts might get results but they are in-efficient and long.

They require you to spend an hour on cardio when in the same duration you could get your interval training workout as well as your strength training workout done. How will you carry out your strength training workouts and build your upper body if you are spending an hour in spinning classes every day? Does this mean you will have to spend twice the amount of time in the gym in order to get your strength training done as well? Spinning classes might get you result but they require that you work out twice as much as you would have for the results that you can get in half the time by doing turbulence training.

I have carried out extensive research and designed turbulence training workouts using the elements of a spinning class that are effective while shortening the duration of the workout. These workouts that are a combination of turbulence training set up in the form of interval cardio sessions will help you blast through the fat while providing you muscle building benefits of strength training in a short duration of time.

3)  Low Weight, High- Rep Strength Training Workouts

This is one of the most argued about topics in the fitness world. Followers of high-rep, low-weight boasts that this workout will help you get lean and fit. Well, let me tell you right now, that spot-reducing is a myth. You cannot work a body part and expect to drop weight there. You will not get ripped abs by working them daily nor will you get a built chest and arms with this method.

I am a big supporter of strength training but this is one of the biggest misconceptions people have. Instead of low-weight, high-rep workouts, lifting heavy weights with low reps will help blast body fat and build muscles faster. This form of working out will also help you burn a lot more calories. Even when you have stopped working out, your body will continue to burn calories. By increasing the turbulence on your muscles, your metabolism will speed up and you will burn calories even while you sleep.

The recent trends have unleashed crazy fitness beliefs. There was one such article that I read which encouraged women to lift soup cans or even small bottles of water to get toned triceps. That is the biggest lie I have ever heard. You simply cannot get toned arms by lifting tiny weights.

You have to stress your muscles. This works for both men and women. The arm workouts in turbulence training will get you sleek and toned arms in a short period. The more muscle you are using, the better the results would be. The focus of turbulence training is to achieve more results in shorter time which is why I advise following only the most effective and efficient workouts.

4)  Isolation Exercises

If you want to achieve quick fat blasting results by working out only 3 hours per week, you should immediately ditch these ineffective workouts. Isolation exercises, such as triceps kickbacks, extensions, and curls, are ineffective exercises that will not get you the results you want in the time you should be spending working out. A wiser option is to perform workouts that train multiple muscles at a time for more effective results. Instead, you need to stick with full-body exercises that allow you to train several muscles without any fancy equipment.

You want the body of your dreams and you want it by working out 3 hours in a week. You don’t have time for exercises that do not match the results Turbulence Training gives you. In the manual, you get 4 month’s step by step workouts that take you through the workouts that will help you lose fat and build muscle without wasting time on isolation exercises.

5)   Endless Abs Workouts 

The people who spend their time doing 100s of crunches with the belief that it will get them ripped abdominals need to realize it doesn’t matter how much you work on the muscle if it is covered with layers of fat. Crunches or other abs workouts will not help you lose even an inch from your waist. With turbulence training, you can complete your entire workout in the same duration that people usually spend working on their abdominals.

There are 3 parts to getting ripped abs:

  • Lose the belly fat by following sound nutrition plans
  • Lose fat from the belly using interval training
  • Strengthen your abdominals by working in an efficient manner using effective exercises

In the turbulence training manual, I have provided you some of the most efficient exercises for building abdominal strength as well as strengthening your back. You can see these exercises under the ‘torso training’ section under workouts in the manual.  I have designed these exercises to provide you the most ripped abdominals in the least amount of time.

6)  Over an Hour-Long Workouts

According to the popular belief you should put in half an hour’s worth of strength training everyday as well as at least an hour of cardio plus the time taken for effective stretching, warm-up and cool-down, in order to lose fat. That is about 2 hours of work out every day. Frankly, no one has that kind of time any more.

On top of all that, these workouts are not all that effective as well.  Only people who have that kind of time are the ones who have their faces plastered across magazines. They also do this for a living. This allows them all the time in the world to get results from ineffective workouts.

People, who have real jobs and spend time behind their desk from 9 to 5 everyday, do not have that kind of time. Nor do these people who have a family to take care of. They need effective short workouts that work.  This is why I have put in years of research to create a workout that will get you the results in the shortest period of time.

Turbulence training workouts will get you the fat burning and muscle building results in just 3 workouts per week, with each workout being shorter than an hour. These close to 45-minute workouts, three times a week, is just enough time that most people can spare for themselves no matter how busy they are, without giving up sleep, if they are serious about losing all the extra fat.
