If you want to squeeze even more fat burning results out of the already amazing Turbulence Training workouts, here are 5 cool workout tips that will super-charge your fat burning success.
1) Use the TRIPLE set method
Try the triple shoulder set (rear-delt, side raise, and front raise), or db incline curls, standing curls, and hammer curls, or db 1-arm tricep extension, db lying 2-arm ext, close grip pushup.
2) Do the Superset Switch-up
If you are doing supersets, switch to doing all the exercises in a circuit. you'll use lighter weights (slightly), but possibly get your workout done faster. A great change of pace without sacrificing results.
3) Use the Russian secret of "Iso pauses"
Great for increasing the difficulty of many exercises, from pushups to squats to pullups. So you could stop halfway down the pushup and hold for 3-5 seconds to make it harder. Or hold the top of the pullup for 2 seconds. That can make a huge difference in response from exercises you are using regularly.
4) Add beach-body sculpting shoulder and arm exercises to the end of your TT Workouts
A lot of tt readers who have a little extra time for more workouts want to add in a bit more arm or shoulder training. Here's an awesome tri-set to top off your beach body:
A) 1-Arm DB Shoulder Presses - 8 reps
B) DB Lying Triceps Extensions - 10 reps
C) DB Incline Curls - 12 reps
Rest 1 minute and repeat two more times for maximum results.
5) Before the workout, do KB swings or intervals
I don't like to do this a lot, but here's a little trick we can use to make our workouts seem harder in terms of conditioning. Instead of leaving all of the intervals to the end, we'll do half of the interval training or kettlebell swings at the start of the workout to increase breathing and heart rate. This will make the rest of the workout feel harder, but you might have to drop your strength levels. So use sparingly.
