Aw yeah, it’s done. Just filmed the Turbulence Training Reconstruction Workout videos. It was awesome. In fact, just filming the videos confirmed how powerful the exercises are for “building your body back up“.
I felt amazing after doing the WYLIT upper back exercises (we’ll put a video of these up on youtube soon!) and a few of the tennis ball and foam rolling self-massage exercises, plus the bodyweight exercises and the ab circuits.
Now I feel like I’m 100% again and ready to rock and roll.
Unfortunately, we always have to film late at night when the gym is empty, so I didn’t get home until after midnight, and then I had to walk Bally the Dog, send a few emails, and organize the editing process for the videos.
We’re shifting into video overdrive these days and I’ll soon have some BIG news about more online Turbulence Training videos, shows, and seminars.
While I was working late I had a great “vegan workout recovery meal” of Ezekial Cereal and applesauce. Sounds weird, but it reminded me of the apple oatmeal crisp my mom used to make for dessert when I was a kid.
So two bowls later, it was 1:30am and I still wanted to go through a few pages of the book I’m reading…and all that caused me to sleep in on Thursday morning and by the time I got back from our morning dog walk it was 9:30am.
1) Bodyweight Squats – 50 reps
2) Stability Ball Rollouts – 12 reps
3) Prisoner Squats – 25 reps
4) Pushups – 20 reps
10 minutes straight. No rest. Felt great. Try that one out for 5-10 minutes or whatever you’ve got.
If you don’t have a stability ball, you can do this bodyweight circuit:
Of if you’re a beginner, you can try this instead…
1) Lying Hip Extensions
2) Keeling Pushups
3) 1-Leg Hip Extensions
No matter which workout you choose, just remember, there are NO excuses for skipping a workout. The “no time” and “no equipment” explanations don’t cut it.
Everyone has 5-10 minutes. And everyone has some bodyweight.
So you can do something everyday to move you closer to your goals.
So those are my circuits…anyone else have any suggestions?
Let me know your best circuit in the comments section below.

With bodyweight workouts, you’ll save time (they are shorter and don’t require you to drive to the gym and back), so you can enjoy more time outside – heck, you can even do most of these workouts in the park!
