Monday – August 31st

Transformation Tip:

Here’s the bottom line…if you plan, and I mean really plan things out (not just making your lunch the day before, but plan out meal by meal, grocery trip by grocery trip, workout by workout for the next 4-12 weeks), you will lose fat and achieve more than you ever thought possible. This is the stuff of legends.

By the way, did you hear about the twist I put on this contest?

It’s pretty simple…and there are no strings attached…but all you need to do is use the Turbulence Training workouts for 12 weeks, submit your before and after photos and 300-word essay, and you’ll get 6 Months Free in the TT Membership area. That’s all you have to do. No purchase necessary.

That’s a $120 gift to you just for following through and finishing up the contest.

Oh, and there’s another twist too…

You can now use Kettlebell Workouts in your Transformation, if you get the kettlebell workouts from our new site, www.KettlebellWorkouts.com

Here’s Workout A from the FREE Kettlebell Workout report created by Chris Lopez, CTT…

Repeat the following circuit 3-5 times.

Rest 60-90 seconds between circuits.

The objective is to better the time it takes to complete the entire circuit on each successive attempt.

1) 1-Arm KB Push Press x 5 (per arm) cb-etrevo2-411
2) KB Front Squat x 10
3) 1-Arm 2-point Row x 10 (per arm)
4) Around the World x 5 each direction
5) 2-Arm KB Swings x 15

Oh, and don’t miss the funny workout video of me on that site!

Do your 30 minutes of fun activity. If you don’t have enough mental energy for it, consider adding cacao nibs to your blender drinks and smoothie recipes.

I add these everyday and have loads of energy all day long.

I also want to share one of my “unique” vegan breakfasts with you…here’s the recipe…actually, its just a bunch of vegan foods mixed up in a bowl…

  • Oat groats (soaked overnight)
  • blueberries
  • 1 peach
  • cashew butter (melted if desired)
  • almonds
  • almond milk


You may have heard about my mission to do Handstand Pushups. Well, I filmed this video for you in Paris, France…

4 Handstand Pushups!

30 minutes of fun activity and then make sure you have everything you need for your “Before Photos” for the contest.

Here are the 5 things you’ll need to start your body transformation…

  • your camera
  • that day’s newspaper
  • good lighting
  • the right outfit (take a few photos in different outfits for fun)
  • Don’t forget to take lots of measurements!

And get ready to lose fat.


Interval training is a simple concept, but most trainers don’t really know what they are talking about…it seems like most just repeat what some other expert said…

But the truth is there is NO best interval training program…at least it isn’t known yet. So watch this video for more details…and a funny gag at the end…

Social Support Saturday!

30 minutes of fun activity, and make sure you surround yourself with people who are fitter and healthier than you. That will bring you up to their level!

That’s the most important reason to be a Turbulence Training Member.You’ll get positive support in the forums (plus a new workout every month). turbulencet3_4

And you now get THREE months FREE in the TT member’s area when you get started with Turbulence Training.

Plus, you can get ALL of this even if you are still skeptical and want to take the 21-day trial offer. So just click this link below and try out the amazing Turbulence Training System for only $4.95

(Don’t forget, you also get another 6 months FREE when you complete the transformation contest!)

Sunday – Plan, Shop & Prepare

30 minutes of fun activity and take EXTRA time to plan, shop, & prepare. Remember what I said earlier about planning being the key to success?

If spend a couple of hours planning out your next 12 weeks, you’ll make amazing changes. Dramatic. Life changing. Spectacular. Unbelievable!

And I can’t wait to see them!

Plus, make sure you do your grocery shopping so that you have these TWO things added to your daily diet.

1) A delicious green salad (like my famous Big Boy Salads)

2) A green drink

For the second, you can add spinach or kale to your fruit smoothie, or try a drink like Greens Plus. Either way, there’s not too many people in the world who don’t need more veggies in their diet. And it will help you lose fat too!

Next week!

Turbulence Training Transformation Contest #6 – Rules

  • Jody

    Hey Craig, I guess I’m not getting the essay part, do we write the essay now or wait til finished, cuz reading the essays of the people who won looks like they are written after??

    • Craig Ballantyne

      everything is done after. You don’t submit anything till the end.

  • hahaa.. craig, so funny of you on the video in brussel.. just a split second you ran there.. i like it. can relate that myself, doing my interval at a children playground (by just sprinting back and forth). funny or weird stares from the parents.. who cares.. as long as i’m doing my routine.

  • Hannah

    Does the “before” photo not get submitted until the end as well?

    • Craig Ballantyne

      Hi Hannah, correct. No need to send anything in until the end.


  • Wenndy

    I am pumped about this contest. I’ve known about TT for almost a year now, but for whatever lazy reason haven’t been convicted enough to be accountable and actually START! Now is the time and I am taking advantage of it. I’ve got a former winner helping supporting me (my “aunt-in-law” Tabitha Bynum). I’m gonna need all the support I can get!! I’m ready to end my year right and begin LIVING my life. =)

    • Craig Ballantyne


  • Michael

    I’m just starting your 2K5 workout and wondered if there was a substitute exercise for the inverted row?? I don’t have the equipment to do it as pictured. Thanks!!

    • Craig Ballantyne

      Dumbbell rear delt raises are a good sub.

      • Michael

        Thanks!!! Is it okay to do that exercise on both A and B workouts?? (The rear delt raise is on the A workout – and the inverted row (which I need a sub for) is on the B workout).

        I have really enjoyed your workouts and the format is really easy to follow! Definitely getting results! Thanks!!

      • Craig Ballantyne

        Can you do seated rows instead? Also, chest supported rows are a great exercise. Search the blog you should be able to find that exercise.

  • Lorna

    Hello Craig,
    I am looking forward to to this transformation contest. I signed up for the last one but did not follow through because I was having some serious health problems. However, if I begin today, my after photo must be 84 days later, regardless of the end date of the programme, is that correct?

    • Craig Ballantyne

      Hi Lorna, yes, your final photo is 84 days after you start.

  • mya

    Will you accept a polaroid pix?

    • Craig Ballantyne

      As long as you have before and after photos, sure.
