Review Snapshot

The workouts are fast, simple, and easy to do. Better yet, these methods are scientifically proven to burn more calories (and fat).


Eating right is an important part of losing body fat--but Turbulence Training doesn't focus on this.


If you're looking for a fat-busting, time-saving workout, look no further: Turbulence Training does it all.

Craig Ballantyne's "Turbulence Training" - REVIEW

Here's the basics of fat loss: Eat less, move more, and repeat.

Okay, that's simple.  Anyone can do this.

But what if you want to lose body fat more rapidly?  What if the "move more, eat less" method isn't making you lean fast enough?

Now you don't know what to do.  Starving won't work because you'll lose lean muscle mass--which can actually make you look skinny fat, not lean.

Craig Ballantyne, one of the leading strength and conditioning coaches in North America, says he has the solution to this.  It's based of years of personal and professional research into the subject.  It's also designed to help people lose fat rapidly even if they don't have much time to spare--say a busy business professional or a working mom.

It's called the turbulence training method, and he explains it all in his eBook Turbulence Training.

What is Turbulence Training?

Turbulence Training is a 76 page eBook detailing all you need to know about Ballantyne's secret fat-blasting training methods--from how much to exercise to timing your rest intervals to boost fat loss.

The eBook details two ways to exercise to maximize fat loss.  These ways include:
  • Strength training with non-competing supersets.  To save time--and to boost your calorie burn--Ballantyne recommends regular strength training (think lifting weights) combined with non-competing supersets.  These are essential "super" supersets where you'll do four antagonist exercises back to back.  Antagonist exercises are exercises that are opposite of each other.  For instance, if you're doing bench press (which trains the chest), an antagonist exercise is the lat pulldown (which trains the back).
  • High intensity interval training (HIIT).  Regular cardio--that's spending 30 minutes to an hour doing casual aerobic exercise--isn't effective when it comes to fat loss; it doesn't keep the metabolism high.  However, using high-intensity interval training has been clinically shown to keep the metabolism high long after the exercise is over, making it an essential component of this training method.  Better yet, HIIT is shorter than a regular cardio session, saving you time.

Now here's the fun part about this program: You won't spend an hour working out.  You'll spend less time than that.  Do all these workouts correctly and they'll take 45 minutes at the most.

Don't have access to a gym or weights?  Ballantyne's methods aren't only for gym goers--he's even developed alternative workouts that don't use any weights.  Instead, they use the force of your own body, called bodyweight exercises.

He details all of this in Turbulence Training, which also comes with a 30-day fat loss workout guide, bonus nutrition guidelines for men and women, a bonus fat loss program, and even an hour long audio MP3 covering everything you need to know about turbulence training. 

Issues with Turbulence Training

By far, Turbulence Training is one of the best training programs out there--and that's not an exaggeration.  Everything is rooted in science.  His strength training methods resemble circuit training, which is a good fat-burning workout method.  HIIT also has science backing it as a good metabolic aid.  One study even showed that people who did HIIT had a higher metabolism for up to 24 hours after the actual exercise.  So, if you're questioning the science here, Ballantyne isn't actually lying to you.

So what are the issues with this eBook?  

Very few, actually.  He lays the science and methodology of his workout plan in a simple, easy-to-follow format, so there are no issues with the actual workout.  

The only problem here is that he seems to focus too much on his workouts as a means of losing body fat.  While exercise does play a role, nutrition actually plays the biggest role, since fat loss can only occur in a caloric deficit.  Ballantyne does talk about nutrition briefly in his nutrition guideline section, but little emphasis is put on the importance of eating right.  

If he were to improve the book, focusing more on nutrition would be highly recommended.

What the Customers are Saying

So Turbulence Training is well liked here--but do the customers also share the same opinion?  Here's what they had to say:

"All I can tell you is that it works.  I am currently 122.5lbs and spend a fraction of the time working out than I used to."

"Its a great program. its one of the programs ive tried and its a tough challenging one if done correctly."

"I am 45.  I used the turbulance training program for my first 3 months to lose weight.  It worked very well."


So--if you've skipped over this entire review--there are definitely good reasons to buy Turbulence Training.  It can help burn off more fat.  It's easy.  It's simple.  Most importantly, these workouts are short, so you won't have to dedicate hours of your life trying to shed that fat.  If that's your goal, then this eBook will undoubtedly be helpful to you.
