Last week Men’s Health contacted me for another fat-blasting workout, so I put together an awesome five exercise circuit, but there’s only one problem.
They’re going to censor it.
Because, *sigh*, they always do.
There’s always a problem. It either has too many exercises (“We only have room for 3 photos“, they’ll say) or they don’t have a photo in their archives of one of the moves I want to use. And if I’m stuck at home with just Bally the Dog, that loveable-but-lacking-opposable-thumbs-to-take-a-photo-wonderdog, then I can’t go out to the garage gym to take the photo that they need for the article.
So…they censor my workouts. Every time.
But here’s the great news. As a TT insider, you get full, uncensored access to all of my workouts, whether it’s today’s Monday Metabolism Kickstarter or my home workout DVD’s (that you can get starting tomorrow <= stay tuned for the big BIRTHDAY sale news on Tuesday).
Until then, enjoy this uncensored fat-blaser.
5 Exercise Monday Metabolism Kickstarter
By Craig Ballantyne, MCTT (Master Certified Turbulence Trainer)
1A) KB or DB Goblet Squat
1B) Decline Pushup (or toughest pushup you can do for 30 seconds)
1C) KB or DB Swing or Total Body Extension
1D) BW or KB/DB Goblet Bulgarian Split Squat (30 sec/side)
1E) DB 1-Arm Row (30 sec/side)
- Do each exercise for 30 seconds with 15 seconds transition between moves/sides.
- This equals 4:30 circuit, rest an extra 30 seconds at the end of the circuit and repeat 2-3 more times…or if you are short on time, just do one round to near-failure for each move – aiming for 15 reps for all DB exercises, 20 reps for swings and as many reps as possible for pushups…but make sure to do 6 warm-up reps for each exercise first.
What will this do for you?
You’ll get incredible total body strength in a calorie torching circuit. It’s a two-on-one workout (I mean two for one! I meant to censor that!).
Why does it work so well?
Non-competing exercises allow you to go nearly back-to-back without isolated muscle-fatigue limiting the next move.
What will it do for someone’s fitness and body transformation?
Your heart rate will be elevated for the entire session, your cardiovascular fitness will improve, and so will your performance in, *ahem*, uncensored activities…that you’ll be partaking in more often because of your fat loss and lean, sexy body sculpted with this uncensored circuit…so when your significant other starts getting their hands all over you, don’t say I didn’t warn ya. 😉
Oh, and if you like these more advanced workouts, you’ll love this article on how to build an Alpha-Muscle Body.
Those are the kind of workouts and secrets that allowed me to build the body you see in the banner at the top of this email. Boom! Alpha Muscle, baby. 🙂
Alright, comedy time is over. Back with more bodyweight only exercise tips later this week.
And don’t forget, big BIRTHDAY news coming tomorrow.
Not mine, but someone very important.

PS – Monday Motivation Kickstarter…
Monday sets the tone for the rest of the week. Start it off the right way. Be productive, work hard, and do something to challenge yourself. And remember…
“When someone tells you it can’t be done, it’s more a reflection of their limitations, not yours.” <= #truth
So if there is something you’ve been waiting to do, take a big step in that direction today.
