Happy Monday. It’s time for Bally and I to go for his morning walk down to “Bally’s Gulch”, but before we head out on this beautiful Toronto morning, I wanted to give you the latest diet and workout updates to kick-off your week.
First, Brad and I discuss the latest in fasting for fat loss and health in this new free audio…just download it to your favorite listening device here:
– Gender differences in fasting
– The effects of Ramadan fasting on body composition
– What happens when you take 6 weeks off dieting and exercise (his latest personal experiment)
– Why a single 24 hour fast is better than daily 16-8 fasting
– And the one diet program that almost all TT Transformation Contest winners seem to be using
Enjoy the audio. Post your follow-up questions for Brad on the TT Facebook page here.
Now over to a new TT Workout Report Card…this time, the TT #Grindhouse program was reviewed by Certified Turbulence Trainer, Dani Woodrum, down in Charleston, South Carolina.
Review of TT Grindhouse – By Dani Woodrum, CTT
Loved the workout. The second circuit was classic in my opinion. Workout B from Grindhouse certainly ranks up there as one of my top TT workouts.
1) Deadlift/Prisoner Squat Jump/Pike Pushups
I loved the deadlift and prisoner squat Jump combo. And the prisoner squat jump was perfect after the high reps deads. I love doing an explosive movement like that after a grinding exercise…excellent combo!
As for the pike pushups, I believe I got 20 reps on the first 2 sets and 17 on the 3rd set.
Overall score for first Set: 8/10
2) Bulgarian Split squat (AKA “The Devil”)/Cross Body Mountain Climber/Ab Rollout/Jackknife
One word describes this little circuit, “Awesome“! I have absolutely no complaints or suggestions about these 4 exercises. It was a perfect combo and everything seemed to flow well together.
In fact, this morning I was walking the dogs, suddenly let out a huge sneeze and my freakin abs were so sore, I couldn’t believe it!
Overall score for 2nd circuit: 10/10
And that’s just part of the workout.
If you want to experience the full Workout B, the perfect 10/10 2nd superset, and Workouts A & C as well, just grab the full TT #Grindhouse program here.
TT Member response to this program has been legendary, and it is certainly a front-runner for TT Workout of the Year 2013.
Have a great week,
Craig Ballantyne, CTT

PS – Dog walk time!

Can’t wait to film those videos and help you out!
