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.

5 Keys to Kill Your Cellulite

5 Critical Keys to Kill Your Cellulite

One of our contributing experts recently put together a kick-butt article that is the “Do This – and DON’T Do That” rule-book when it comes to getting rid of unsightly cellulite dimples, shadows and ripples. It’s a quick read with some eye-opening tips and a helpful video that you’ll want to see while it’s still up.

“Ask any woman on the street what the definition of “cellulite” is and you’ll get a confused variety of answers. From “toxic fat pockets caught in the skin” to “bands of fiber pulling down on the skin” and many odd things in between…”

no more cellulite orange bikini

The truth is: most people really don’t know what “cellulite” actually is, or, what causes this odd appearance of the lower body trouble zones…”

This is no surprise as there actually is no such thing as ‘cellulite’… So how do we get rid of something which doesn’t exist?”

Here’s the answer:

“The word, “cellulite”, was cleverly made-up several decades ago, in a European beauty-spa, to DESCRIBE the bumpy, shadowy and dimpled appearance of skin in the lower body trouble zones of the female body. (butt, hips, thighs, legs)”

The beauty spas then started cashing-in and profiting big-time by marketing “beauty” services and products to get rid of “cellulite”. And if you’re like most women who’ve been challenged by this issue, then you probably already know all of those passive and superficial beauty treatments do not get rid of the dented shadows and mushy dimples on your buns, legs and thighs.”

In order to make your lower-body smooth, tight and attractive, there are 5 steps to follow.

Here they are:

5 Critical Keys to KILL Your Cellulite

1: You cannot get rid of the dimples and shadows (cellulite) by rubbing an odd gel, weird lotion or goopy cream on your trouble zones and problem spots.

So, stop using them – as some can actually make your cellulite worse.

Despite the fact that there are dozens of supposed ‘cellulite reduction creams’ on the market, there is no possible way for any one of them, no matter how expensive, to get rid of your cellulite. Cellulite is not a skin problem. Its an underlying structural issue, that can only be corrected by reversing the cause of atrophied muscle fibers directly beneath your “cellulite” trouble spots.”

Since the squishy dimples and shadows are a superficial symptom of a problem below the surface; it’s impossible for the creams, lotions or gels to have any physiological impact on the cause of the issue…”

2: Risky and expensive ‘medi-spa treatments’ can only reduce your bank account – not your cellulite problems. And there are many consumer reports about women being seriously scarred or injured as well.

Stay away from these as the FDA reports show women who’ve been scarred or injured for life.

Painful, dangerous and uncomfortable services ranging from endermologie to body-wrapping have been proven to be totally ineffective when it comes to treating cellulite. However, advertising and marketing loopholes allow these services to be cleverly marketed to desperate women who are at wits end with the unattractive dimples and shadows on the lower-body problem areas.”

3: The unattractive dimples, shadows and saggy ripples known as cellulite are not ‘genetic’ and you are NOT stuck with them forever if you have them.

Falsely believing this will prevent you from getting rid of your cellulite. So, don’t entertain this nonsense for 1 second.

These two ridiculous myths are often passed around by ‘neighborhood know-it-alls’ – and many women actually believe these 2 myths – especially if they haven’t found the right way to get rid of the cellulite. Whats even more alarming are the number of doctors who also believe in and foster these 2 demoralizing falsehoods.

Yes – it is common to see a mother and daughter, both with the lower-body “orange peel” look, BUT this doesn’t mean cellulite is genetic – it simply means both women have not found a way to lift, tone and firm the muscle layers under the dimpled, saggy skin.”

4: You can get rid of cellulite, regardless of your age – or when you began to notice it.

Since cellulite is a structural issue (muscle) – it can be fixed with simple and unique body movements which target the cellulite areas.”

These types of moves can be followed by any woman, regardless of her age or fitness level. And it doesn’t matter if the cellulite started in the early teen years – or after pregnancy – or after menopause – it’s still a structural issue that results from soft, un-toned muscles underneath the saggy, dimpled, shadowy skin.”

5: The only proven way to permanently get rid of the dimples and shadows of cellulite is through a series of simple, yet specifically targeted lower-body movements

These unique movements focus on lifting, shaping and toning the muscle layers so they gently push outward against the skin – to bring back the smooth, tight and sexy appearance, while burning off any excess flab, if there is any.”

This is how regular women reverse the cause of cellulite dimples and shadows… AND, if there happens to be any excess fat in those zones – it will be burned off as fuel by the muscles. This bonus of losing any unhealthy excess body-fat is nice because it reveals a great body and it works wonders for your health profile.

BUT you won’t learn about these unique slow-tempo movements in the gym or your local health club.”

These body movements are NOT done with typical weights and machine type exercises.” “Most regular fitness instructors don’t even know about this type of targeted cellulite-killing method. (click to watch video)

These muscle-stimulating movements can be done right at home, in total privacy.

The female lower-body has over 90 muscles…

Picture those 90 muscles BENEATH your skin’s surface in your legs, butt, hips and thigh zones. That’s where the magic happens in regards to true removal of mushy dimples and saggy shadows in the trouble spots and problem areas…

Despite what most women have been led to believe, there is a critical difference between a ‘general workout program’ – and a laser-focused, cellulite removal method. The sweetest benefit of this is; you don’t need access to a health club or fitness center.” …”Just click PLAY on this video by Joey Atlas, (M.S., Ex.Phys.) and get it started now:” (it opens in a bigger screen so you don’t miss a thing)

These are simple, unique moves you can start doing today, right in the privacy of your own home. And if you start this type of targeted muscle stimulation method today – you will start feeling results within 2 weeks and seeing results within 3 to 4 weeks.
