Your Nutrition

How Bad is Your Nutrition?

By: Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS
www.TurbulenceTraining.com

Chances are your nutrition is terrible. Or at the very least, your nutrition plan is good but you allow yourself far too many treats. Take today for example. How many Halloween candies have you treated yourself to at work? And you still have to go home and resist the leftover candy bowl or your child’s Halloween loot. The bottom line: You can’t succeed in your fat loss program if your diet is average.

I need to bring up this point because of the many emails people send me about their nutrition. From what I read, most people’s nutrition plans are far too poor to allow them to lose fat. And yet they are working harder than ever in the gym and wondering why they aren’t losing fat. No workout will help you build muscle and lose fat if you keep eating at fast-food restaurants, drinking sugary sodas, and raiding bags of leftover mini-candy bars.

And it’s frustrating because the secrets to fat loss nutrition are so simple. The best approach is eating several small meals per day, with each meal containing lean protein, vegetables, and other whole foods. You must eliminate unnecessary calories such as soda and high-fat, high-sugar snacks (like that mini-Snickers bar that’s on your desk right now). If you’re trying to lose fat, you can’t have treats every day. If fat loss is the goal, then cookies, apple pie, ice cream, nachos, fried foods, etc. just don't make the cut, as unfortunate as it is.

Research shows that an increased intake of fruits and vegetables is associated with fat loss (nutritionists never put a limit on the number of vegetables that people should eat - provided they are not fried or covered in fat or sauces). Other research suggests that replacing carbohydrates with almonds (a source of fiber, protein, and monounsaturated fats) leads to greater weight loss. Almonds are a very healthy snack and help curb hunger. A typical serving is 1 ounce of almonds (about 22 pieces) and can replace chips, chocolate bars, and cookies in your diet.

Make sure you are logging your food intake and making notes about your energy levels when you eat certain foods. Soon you will identify the nutritional reasons for your fatigue or for your consistent energy levels. You will quickly associate sugar and fried foods with poor mental performance, while noticing that small, whole, natural food-based meals and snacks help keep you alert and full of energy.

If you are overweight and just starting to improve your nutrition, I have some good news for you. You should begin losing at least 1 pound per week (probably 2 or more) simply from the nutritional changes.

Nutrition is that powerful. Don’t expect to start eating perfectly tomorrow, but you should slowly build up to eating much better and healthier than you were yesterday. Try to improve your nutrition plan everyday. Stay consistent and focused with your nutritional approach. You can do it. Here are three nutrition changes that would pay huge dividends for a fat-loss beginner:

Hidden Costs of Dieting

The Hidden Costs of Dieting

By: Marc David
www.Beginning-Bodybuilding.com

Possibly the most misunderstood part of fitness is nutrition.

I personally have not heard of the Warrior Diet until today. But with so many of these programs cropping up, it's not a shock that I can't keep up with them all. Just like supplements, somebody has a twist on just about everything.

Don't get me wrong, some of these diets work and there's a few exceptions where people are able to stay on them literally for years!

But first a warning: The REAL reason they say 90% or more of dieters fail is because the word "diet" itself is a short-term concept. When you think of your eating habits as short-term, you are bound to fail and go back to eating the way you used to.
thinking about dieting.

Here's 3 key concepts you need to consider when thinking about dieting.

Key Concept #1:

The diet concept sets you up for quick results. When it comes to the human body, all of us want something for nothing. We want changes immediately. This attitude applies to losing fat, building muscles or just getting in shape.

For starters...

There are no miracle means when it come to good nutrition practices. With thousands of foods to choose from and using different food combinations, you can see how easy it would be to create a variety of diets using multiple dieting angles.

Many diets can leave the individual's metabolism in a damaged state simply because so many of these trendy diets are deficient in important macro- and -micronutrient. More often than not, they do not provide adequate nutrition for athletes or individuals who are attempting to get into better shape and have increased dietary needs.

Believe me, some of them are too low in protein or carbohydrates to support an athlete and others are much too high in fat to be healthy.

Fact is: Many dieters end up losing weight (which can be a combination of water, muscle and fat) initially but end up gaining it all back and then some. That is extremely frustrating to the dieter who them embarks on yet another trendy diet in an effort to lose the weight again.

Sometimes this is referred to "yo-yo" dieting as the person loses weight, gains more back, loses more and ultimately just destroys their body's metabolism and frustrates them to no end.

And that's just the start...

Lose Stubborn Belly Fat

The Best Way I Know To Lose Stubborn Belly Fat

By: Marc David
www.Beginning-Bodybuilding.com

Everyone wants to know how to lose fat around their abs, well, here's how I do it...

The #1 question that is asked on all fitness sites, bodybuilding forums, magazines and late night TV infomercials sounds a lot like these:

How do I lose the stubborn belly fat? How do I lose abdominal fat? How to do I get great abs? How do I lose the stomach pouch off the lower abs?

These are all too common question and they are so popular that it's the reason the weight reduction arena is a multi- billion dollar (yes billion) industry.

You are about to read the real secret to great abs and how to lose the abdominal fat without spending money on supplements or following some diet-of-the-month and it's going to be a very simple formula that you can follow. Remember...

Your abdominal muscle is like the rest of the muscles in your body. They require training if you want them to be larger and stronger. A common mis-conception is that you must train your abs several times a week. This will only lead to overtraining. Your abs are a muscle. Train it like everything else. No need to focus and go overboard. Two to three times a week of focused ab work or core strength is generally the rule for 6 pack abs.

An Easy 3-Step System For Ripped Abdominals:

Step 1

Training: 1% of your overall ab development will actually come from training. Consider the fact that most people think 90% of your results come from training, you can see this isn't the popular consensus. Needless to say, that's where most focus their efforts. They don't get their nutrition in order, they don't use cardio effectively so the masses just do more ab training and more crunches. Ultimately for your abs to show you must have abs to show and a low percentage of body fat for them to appear. More training does nothing to eliminate the layer of fat that is covering them. This is commonly know as spot reduction. Training an area for the sole purpose of eliminating fat in that area.

Tip - Do not make training the #1 priority to show off those abs. Train them like any other muscle. More ab work will not make your abs appear. Focus on lowering your body fat levels and not spot reduction.

Step 2:

Cardio: 9% of your effort can be directed as using cardio as a fat burning tool. High intensity interval training is by far the fastest and most efficient method you can use to shed the pounds. You'll want to keep in mind, using cardio is a tool. Not a foundation. This simply means that doing marathon sessions will not be to your advantage. Learn to use cardio effectively and you can enhance and boost your metabolism beyond what even eating the right foods can do. Some competitive bodybuilders use cardio up to twice a day for 30 days to just chisel off that last remaining layer of fat that's cover up the abdominal region.

Tip - Cardio can be done twice a day for a full body shock! Just keep in mind this method is a short term tool and not a routine you would use for any length of time.

Top 12 Beginner Mistakes Report

Top 12 Beginner Mistakes Report :: The Secrets to Avoiding Costly Mistakes For Any Beginner

Let's face it, working out, eating right and figuring out what to do is tough!

There's no doubt, it's probably the most difficult lesson for any beginning bodybuilder to learn. Frankly, bodybuilding is the only subject you can't fake.

Of course, some people will tell you can do fine without an understanding of training and nutrition. WRONG!

However, the big problem is most books on the subject are filled with complex science or too much generalized information but not enough actual step by step and how to formulas that you can use without being a math genius. You practically had to be a brain surgeon to figure it out.

Sound at all familiar?

But now there's good news!...

Recently a short report was created by highly acclaimed beginner’s expert, Marc David, has been discovered. Marc's work is the secret resource many top bodybuilders used to perfect their gains.

Now you can discover…

The Right (and the Wrong) Way to Learn Bodybuilding

This newly released work called “The Top 12 Beginner Mistakes” by Marc David is the quickest and easiest way to learn how to avoid making those simple mistakes that all people who bodybuilder seem to make either when they are just starting out or just never figured out the simple fundamentals. Inside this magnificent work you'll get over 12 of the top questions all beginners ask when they start to learn about fitness and bodybuilding. Absolutely everything any beginner who’s just starting out would need.

The work is divided up into 12 comprehensive questions:

Question 1: How do I calculate how many calories I need per day based on my goals?
Question 2: What can I do to measure my body fat?
Question 3: What’s better? Free weights or machines?
Question 4: How can I get 6 pack abs?
Question 5: How much protein do I need every day?
Question 6: What is a good basic workout?
Question 7: What is the best fat burning supplement?
Question 8: If one body part is bigger or stronger, should I skip it?
Question 9: My legs are big enough. I keep hearing legs are so important to workout. Why is it so important?
Question 10: Can you lose fat and build muscle at the same time?
Question 11: Does NO2 work?
Question 12: I’m skinny. Always have been. What can I do to gain weight?

And even a bonus Question 13! Without this, you might as well stay home and watch T.V.

As you can see this really is the ultimate tutorial for bodybuilding but until now it was never really written in one place. (Even if you're an advanced athlete you'll benefit immensely from quickly reading over this because you'll ensure you’ve missed nothing when it comes to the fundamentals.)

Just imagine being able to jump into fitness and bodybuilding anytime, any place, almost anywhere…without the inconvenience of wondering why you aren’t making gains as fast as you want or becoming frustrated because you left out a critical step!

Listen to What Other Top 12 Readers Say About “The Top 12 Beginner Mistakes Report”:

I have to tell you, sir, one of the most awesome things about your
site is the information on How many calories do I need to consume?
It is the most crystal clear thing I've read on the subject and the
most helpful to me, a beginning bodybuilder.

I even purchased Arnold's Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding.

Yes, that book is good, but your information on figuring out how much calories one needs is more complete and more helpful to me than the general way Arnold covered it in his book.

The last two issues of Muscle and Fitness also didn't tackle this
subject, though I'm thinking of subscribing to their magazine anyway.

Funny thing is, they even had an article quoted one guy saying, "99% of the people working out don't meet the caloric requirements" but then the article doesn't tell you what those requirements are!!

Anyway, there was more in the Top 12 Beginner Mistakes that I found
helpful, but I gotta tell ya, the most helpful is the stuff on how
much calories I need to take. I was a bit confused about that until I
read your e-book!!

THANKS A MILLION FOR YOUR HELP!

Sincerely,

Adolfo
Chicago, IL

I have been researching for about a month on how to start losing weight, gaining muscle, making myself look better, so far this e book has pointed me in the best direction, thanks.

Rich

Not to be crude in any way, shape, or form, but that’s a DAMN good report for beginners that are just starting out. Nice.

Alex

Ab Workouts

Ab Workouts Slow Fat Loss

By: Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS
TurbulenceTraining.com

Not only are most traditional ab workouts a waste of time, but they also slow your fat loss efforts. Each workout you spend crunching takes time away from more effective fat loss methods - such as interval training.

That's right, the common man's (and woman's) ab workout taken from Shape magazine or Muscle'n'Fitness often hurts their fat loss program more than it helps it.

Remember - I'm in the business of getting you the most fat loss in the least amount of exercise time...so I have little room in my program for traditional ab crunches (with the exception of using basic ab exercises for beginners who need to learn to use their ab muscles after a lifetime of inactivity).

Instead, I focus on exercises that build a 6-pack AND burn a lot of calories at the same time. That's why I'm a big fan of making EVERY exercise an ab exercise (by bracing the abs in every movement), as well as using total body ab exercises (such as Mountain Climbers, the Spiderman Lunge/Climb, and the Stability Ball Jackknife).

These exercises use far more muscle mass than a traditional crunch. In fact, some of the total body ab exercises are "interval-like" in nature, helping to put more metabolic turbulence on the body, and as you know, that's what burns calories during AND after the workout.

Now of course you know that you can't spot reduce the fat on your body - so doing an endless number of crunches not only does little for you in terms of losing fat, it also wastes your time in your quest for a 6-pack.

Here are a couple of strategies to maximize your workout time when your goal is to get lean, and get down to a low-enough body fat percentage to see your abs in as little workout time as possible:

(If you've got 2 hours a day to workout, by all means, do whatever your heart desires...but I don't think many of us that live in the real world have that kind of time.)

A) First, simply cut back on your ab training - If your goal is to simply lose fat, gain a little muscle, and just look as good possible, then you can't spend 30 minutes on abs everyday. You can build your 6-pack by doing less than 30 minutes of ab exercise per week.

I'm convinced that no one (not even a fitness model or pro bodybuilder) needs more than 30 minutes of ab training per week.

In fact, at the photo shoots I supervise for the fitness magazines, I get to talk to a lot of fitness models and what they tell me about their training routines might shock you. Most of them don't train nearly as frequently as you or I might think.

Instead, they've worked hard over the years with the basic lifts to build their body, and now many of them simply use nutrition and maintenance workouts to keep their abs showing.

B) Second, replace your crunches with the total body ab exercises I mentioned earlier. Also, if you have access to a cable machine, you can do weighted ab exercises such as kneeling cable crunches.

C) And finally, if you are doing intervals for fat loss as I recommend, you can use the following approach to increase the difficulty of your ab and interval training. However, this is an
advanced method only. Beginners should stick to the TT guidelines in their manual.

During your interval workout, perform an ab exercise during your active recovery period. For example, if you are doing running intervals on a treadmill...

Run for 60 seconds at your work interval speed. Immediately stop the treadmill, get off, and go into a set of 20 Mountain Climbers. Climb back on the treadmill and start it up for your next interval. Repeat for 3-6 intervals.

You can also use basic spinal stabilization "ab exercises" such as the plank, side plank, or advanced plank versions (i.e. plank with your arms on the ball) to train your spinal stabilization while under heavy breathing stress. I learned this technique from Dr. Stuart McGill.

Remember: Always train safe, with good form, and be conservative. Don't try to be a hero in the gym, but you should safely challenge yourself in each workout.

Stick to the Turbulence Training Guidelines if you don't know where to start.

P.S. - Would you like to know more about my
friend Jon Benson?

I feel you deserve to know who a bit more about
who I am recommending to you (even though you
know I just don't recommend anybody)!

Perhaps you can relate to this story:

About fifteen years ago, Jon was an obese man, a
workaholic, spiritually bankrupt, and financially
struggling to make ends meet.

He was on countless bottles of medication for
depression and various physical problems, and
he was in a dead-end job that he hated.

To top it all off, he was having problems in
every relationship that mattered to him,
including his own family.

http://www.healthybiz2000.com/mpower.htm

He spent the following 15 years dedicating his
life to reading hundreds of books on personal
development, empowerment, mastery, health,
and fitness.

The result?

Jon went from an obese couch potato with a
laundry list of health ailments to a fitness role
model with superior health.

At the chronological age of forty, he possessed
the fitness age of an extremely active
21-year-old.

His wealth took off along with his health...this
guy went from being over $50,000.00 in debt
to financial power -- all using the same exact
principles!

(They work for any area of your life...)

http://www.healthybiz2000.com/mpower.htm

P.P.S. Now just imagine THIS: having an
entire "team of Jons", people who are thriving
in every area of life -- but who were not 'born
with it' -- all revealing their strategies to YOU!

---> Why just imagine when you can
---> experience it for real?

Hey, this is proven, tested, **guaranteeed**,
and it will only take you about 7 minutes to
discover something that can change the
next 7...or 70 years...of your life!

Speed Training

Maximum Velocity
Patrick Beith
CompleteSpeedTraining.com


Training speed is more then just working on acceleration. You must actually coach your athletes how to run, especially when running at top speed.

Maximum Velocity is another way of saying running at full speed. The point in a race, workout or game that you reach maximum velocity depends on strength levels, experience and running mechanics. However, regardless of where and when you reach full speed, there are some differences in running mechanics and effort when compared to acceleration.

When running at full speed, you no longer need to try and apply the same level of force to the track as during acceleration. This is a common mistake among inexperienced athletes. Now that you are at full speed, you will be completely upright (perpendicular to the ground) and your body will no longer be leaning at an angle as you were during acceleration. By continuing to try to run faster and faster throughout a run, as though you were still accelerating, you are actually going to have a breakdown in running mechanics. By continuing to try to accelerate while beginning to fatigue, you will only slow yourself down faster because you can not continue to coordinate your movements with accuracy.

Instead, you want to relax or 'float' during maximum velocity. What this means is that you want to ease back in the amount of effort you are expending while running, but without slowing down and losing any speed. This idea sounds contradictory and like any new skill, it takes some practice to perfect.

While running, you want to continue to step over the opposite knee, but instead of driving the ball of the foot down into the ground, you are just going to tap the foot downward, letting the ground come to you. Continue to drive the elbows down and back at the same speed, but without the same intensity as during the early part of your run. Remember, you are not going to get any faster at this point so energy conservation is important. We know that your brain tells you to keep running harder so that you do not slow down, but you have to fight the urge to do that and run smart. It is the ability to make these types of adjustments that can be the difference in running a fast time, outrunning an opponent or chasing one down to make the play.


Maximum Velocity Cues

* Continue to step over the opposite knee, but let the ground come to you.
* FLOAT - Ease back in intensity, but don't slow down.
* Fight the urge to continue to run faster and harder.
One of the goals of top speed training is to learn how to decelerate the slowest. The athlete who decelerates the slowest runs the fastest. Relaxation is the only way to decrease the speed at which you slow down.


Sample Workouts:

1. Fly 20s, 30s and 40s:
Place a cone at the starting line, at 15y, at 35y and at 55y. Accelerate hard to the first cone (15y). Maintain the speed you have generated by running relaxed and following the maximum velocity cues from 15 - 35y. Once you hit 35y, slowly decelerate for the next 20y coming to a full stop at the last cone. This is a fly 20. Once you are comfortable holding that speed for 20y, you can move the second cone to 45y (fly 30s) and 55y (fly 40s). Total volume for these
workouts should be between 250 - 350 yards.

2. Sprint/Float/Sprint
Place a cone at the starting line, 15y, 25y, 35y, 45y and at 65y. Accelerate hard to the first cone (15y). Maintain a hard sprint for 10y, focusing on maintaining the speed and intensity created during acceleration. Once you hit the next cone (25y) go into a float by easing back in intensity (don't try to continue to get faster) without losing any speed. At the next cone (35y) go back to a hard sprint, running at full intensity and trying to increase your speed. At the next cone (45y), shut down by slowly coming to a stop. You should not be at a complete stop before the final cone at 65y, giving you a full 25 yards to slow down.

Fewer Ingredients Means Less Bodyfat

If you're looking for a way to jack your fat-
burning sky-high, here's a great tip for you:
focus on single ingredient meals, especially
after 6:00pm.

Note: this is not a long-term strategy, nor is it
something you should do every day. Aim for
consuming 3-4 meals per week at first that
contain only one ingredient.

Guess what ingredient that is?

--Protein.--

Eating hard proteins foods as I describe in "Simply
Eat!" is a great way to get lean. You can do this
using animal or vegetarian based protein foods.

The key is one ingredient. Consume your normal
meal's calories all in protein. This will help
elevate your thermogenic rate and keep that fat
burning.

If you select a second ingredient, select celery --
and lots of it. Celery will fill you up and help
expend even more calories in the fat-burning
process.

For more tips on why "ingredients", not calories,
are the key to long-term fat-burning and success,
go here now --

Hormones

If your hormones could talk

Thursday 12th of October 2006

--- > Note: If you're experiencing menopause or
--- > andropause, this may be the most important
--- > email you ever read.

If your hormones could talk, here's what
they would be asking --

"Hold on a minute...do you really plan to stay
'active' past 35? Why?? Do you 'really' need
all that energy you once had?"

Female hormones would ask questions
like, "How are those perimenopause and
menopause symptoms treating you? Kinda
a nightmare, eh?"

The male hormones...well, they'd just keep
urging you to buy more "blue pills" and then
giving you grief about how "you don't have
the energy for it, anyway..."

Thank goodness your hormones are NOT
in charge...you are.

However, for most of us over 35, our many
hormones, all seemingly going crazy, can
certainly make us feel like we're at their
mercy.

Let's see...we have:

- - > Night sweats
- - > Hot flashes
- - > Weak erections
- - > No desire
- - > .Weight gain (easy and rapid)
- - > Mood swings

...and about a dozen other problems.

"Hormone Hell"...that's what it is.

The question is: how much longer are you
going to put up with these symptoms, and
dozens of potential (and serious) health
risks, all associated with low hormones?

Do you really think 'drugs' are a wise
solution to the problem? What about your
health in the future?

solution to your hormone health that works
for both men and women...AND covers the
ROOT CAUSES of your hormone troubles,

Simply Eat!

A big fat news flash

--- > Note: If you've ever tried to 'diet' in the past
--- > without luck, this may be the most important
--- > email you ever read. No pills or gimmicks...
--- > just the simple truth. Enjoy!


You know, I can think of five books that are
current best-sellers, each promoting a special
diet, and each contradict the other four books!

What's a health conscious person do to?

Now, consider this...

- - One out of four children born from the year
2000 on will develop type 2 diabetes in
his or her lifetime;

- - America has become, bar none, the one
and only champion of "obesity". In fact,
obesity has just been named the number
one preventable contributor to at least
three of our top five killers;

- - Over 150,000 books (no kidding) are in
print that deal with diet, health and fitness,
yet every nutrition-based lifestyle illness
is still on the rise;

- - There are third-world countries without
any advanced medical care who are
healthier than we "civilized folks"

Does ANY of this sound acceptable to you?

Well, now I have some terrific news. There's
a simple, 77-page book that's already shot
to the best-seller list because...well,

it's simple!

It's not a d.i.e.t -- it's a 5-step formula that
makes ANY food plan up to 5 times easier,
faster and more enjoyable to follow.

Go see --

"Simply Eat!" is exactly what it sounds like --
a simple, no-nonsense approach to sane and

energy, less fat, greater health, and far less
confusion.

And, get this --

"Simply Eat!" works if you're a vegan. It works if

Obesity-Hypertension

The Obesity-Hypertension Connection: Is Your Weight Putting You At Risk?

Did your daily weigh-in cause your blood pressure to spike? If you are as little as ten percent over your ideal weight, and especially if you're carrying excess body fat in your abdominal region, then what you learn in the next three minutes as you read this article could not only help you lose those excess inches, it could save your health and even your life!

More than 50 percent of Americans are overweight or obese and the numbers just keep on rising. These shocking statistics have doctors from the World Health Organization, Center for Disease Control, and American Heart Institute wondering how to stop the epidemic. That sudden shock of seeing the numbers on the scale inch up is not what’s giving rise to your blood pressure. It is the ongoing, day-to-day strain that obesity puts on the entire cardiovascular system that causes blood pressure to reach dangerous heights.

Being extremely overweight and having high blood pressure is so closely related that it has even been given its own name: obesity hypertension. Of all the cases of hypertension in the U.S., 75% can be directly attributed to obesity. Deaths directly from hypertension or that had high blood pressure as a primary contributor totaled 310,707 deaths in the U.S. in 2002. It’s a chain reaction (obesity=hypertension= heart disease=death) that all begins with how fat a person is.

Obesity is also a condition that is an equal opportunity disease. It doesn’t matter if you are male, female, old, young, or the origins of your ancestry. If you are overweight, you increase your chances for hypertension and if you lose weight, your risk goes down. But stay overweight and your risk of developing hypertension is 5 to 6 times greater than someone who is at his or her ideal weight.

How Heavy is Obese?

The first question to ask in removing the obesity risk factor for hypertension is “Am I overweight?” Obesity is determined by Body Mass Index (BMI), which takes into account the relationship between height and weight. A BMI above 30.0 is considered obese. A score between 25.0 and 29.9 is considered “overweight.” Ideally, BMI should be between 18.5 and 24.9.

To measure your own BMI you take your current weight and divide it by the number you get when you multiply your height in inches by your height in inches again. Then multiply that number by 703 for your BMI. For example, if you are 5’6” and weight 165 pounds, you would multiply 66” times 66” for a total of 4356. Then divide 165 by 4356 for a total of 0.0378. Next multiply that by 703 for a BMI equal to 26.6, which is considered overweight.

How Does Being Overweight Impact Blood Pressure?

When you are obese, your body needs more blood in order to supply oxygen to and nourish the extra tissue. When you put more blood into the same passageway of veins and arteries, there will be extra pressure on those blood vessels.

Weight gain is also usually in the form of fat. According to Mayo Clinic research, fat cells even produce more chemicals, which in turn add to the strain on the heart and pressure on the blood vessels. In addition, there is an increase in insulin from weight gain. This makes the body retain sodium and water, which also increases heart rate and decreases the ability of the blood vessels to move blood throughout the body, thereby increasing blood pressure.

It’s not just how much you are overweight, but also where you carry your extra weight that can have a great impact on blood pressure. Risk factors are increased when added weight is in the abdominal area. This is because people with a so-called spare tire also have increases in blood sugar, which causes the fat to be deposited there, and then starts the sodium and water retention cycle.

Reducing Weight to Lower Blood Pressure

Because there is a direct correlation between obesity and hypertension, it makes perfect sense that by losing weight you can lower blood pressure. The proof is in the numbers. Blood pressure is measured in mm/hg. A reading of blood pressure both as the heart beats and as it relaxes, creates the dual number of X over Y giving you your final blood pressure reading. For every 2.2 pounds of weight lost, blood pressure falls 1 mm/hg. Realistically, an overweight person like in our example above could lose just 10 percent of their body weight – in this case 16.5 pounds and lower their blood pressure by 7 or 8 points.

Small Steps for Big Results

If you can conquer obesity, then you can take dramatic steps in lowering blood pressure. One of the best ways to combat weight is with walking. Walking increases metabolism and is more effective in the long run than more strenuous cardiovascular workouts. Those who are overweight should talk to their doctor before starting an exercise program of any kind, but all physicians will agree that walking is one of the safest, most effective forms of exercise. Good shoes that provide support to the arches will protect feet and knees from stress injuries. Also, walking on softer surfaces such as a grassy field or dirt road will give a better workout because more balance and coordination is needed.

Some other ways to lose weight safely and lower blood pressure include:

1. Reduce sodium intake

2. Don’t eat within 3 hours of going to bed at night

3. Drink at least 8 glasses of water each day

4. Replace saturated animal fats with non-saturated, healthy fats from vegetable sources

5. Limit consumption of alcoholic beverages that are packed with calories

There are some risk factors associated with hypertension that you cannot control, such as genetics, race, and age. How much you weigh and what you do to make sure you are a good weight is within your control. Take action to keep obesity in check and reduce your risk of developing high blood pressure.

Training The Stretch - A Stretch Position Giant Set That Will Pile on Muscle

Training The Stretch - A Stretch Position Giant
Set That Will Pile on Muscle

By Nick Nilsson


Looking to gain maximum muscle? The stretch position of a
muscle is the best place to start. With proper use, you can
not only activate more muscle fibers, you may even be able
to SPLIT your muscle fibers, making more of them - that means
faster gains, more easily!


When it comes to training, all exercises are NOT created equal. If you're looking to gain mass, you know the squat is going to add a lot more muscle to your legs than a leg extension.

But did you know that focusing work on the greatest stretched position of a muscle can give you a similar advantage in muscle building?

Research has shown that placing high tension on muscles in their stretched position can have two extremely important effects on muscle building.

The first is greater activation of your muscle fibers - they fire in larger numbers, which is just what we need to build muscle. When you add tension to the muscle in the stretched position, you activate what is called the Myotatic Reflex (a.k.a. stretch reflex). It's a reflex designed to protect the joints when heavy loads are placed on the muscles in the stretched position. To try and protect the joint, the body activates more muscle fibers to try and get that load out of the stretched position.

More fibers worked means more fibers growing!

The second important effect of stretch-position training, while being a potentially VERY powerful one, is still only a theoretical one. Because while no human studies have confirmed this effect,
numerous animal studies have demonstrated it reliably, showing overall muscle size increases in the order of 300% (which is HUGE).


The effect is "hyperplasia," which means muscle fiber splitting (compare it to "hypertrophy," which means muscle fiber growth). When high tension is placed on the muscle in the stretched position, a single muscle fiber may actually split into TWO muscle fibers in response.

More fibers in the muscle means more overall potential growth! If you have more muscle fibers, it's just plain easier to build muscle. Having more muscle fibers is most likely one of the reasons some people just build muscle faster than others. So how do we train to maximize muscle growth from the stretched positions of muscles?

We're going to utilize a technique I've come up with that I call "Pre/Post-Exhaust Stretch Giant Sets." It's a fancy name for a technique that is as effective as it is challenging and, to be completely honest, downright painful. Just know right up front that this is NOT a technique you can coast through, but if you're ready for some serious results, get ready to dig in...

To demonstrate this technique, I will use the chest as an example. You're going to be doing two exercises - dumbell flyes and barbell bench press. But here's the key...you're not going to be doing the whole range of motion of either of them!

At the end of this article, I will also include a link to a video of this technique in action so you can see EXACTLY how it's performed.

Part one of this giant set is the Pre-Exhaust. Take dumbells you could normally do about 10 to 12 full reps of dumbell flyes with, lay down on a bench or Swiss ball and lower the dumbells down to the bottom, stretched position.

Now you're going to do partial, bottom-range reps of the dumbell flye exercise. Let the dumbells stretch your pecs at the bottom then, with a short, powerful movement, raise them up a couple inches. Now immediately bring them back down into the stretch position and hold, letting the pecs stretch. Perform as many reps as you can with this technique.

Part two of the giant set is continuous tension training. Immediately get up and move to the dip station (you can also use the bench press for this). When doing dips, normally just using bodyweight should be fine. If you're using the bench press, before you start the giant set, you should pre-set the bar with a weight that you can normally do 12 to 15 reps with.

When doing dips for chest, you should have your body in a half-moon position, hunching forward and setting your elbows out wide to the sides. Look down as you're doing the reps to keep the tension on the pecs.

With dips, lower yourself down ALMOST to the very bottom then push yourself back up ALMOST to the top. When doing bench press, unrack the bar and lower it to ALMOST the bottom position then, with no pause, press it back up to ALMOST the top position. With no pause, lower it back down to the same position as before.

What you are doing here is continuous tension training in the middle range of motion of the dip or the bench press. You're never getting a full stretch and you're never locking out. The pecs get NO rest during the entire set. Do as many reps as you can on the dips or the press then step down or re-rack the weight.

Now, if you thought the first two parts were hard, you're in for some fun...here's where it gets REALLY tough.

Go right back to the dumbell flyes, get back into position on the bench or ball (using the same dumbells as you were using before) and do ANOTHER stretch position partial set. This final post-exhaust set is going to really set off the alarm bells in your body!

So basically, the first set of partial flyes is going to take advantage of the increased muscle-fiber activation you get with a stretched-position exercise. Then, when you go into continuous tension pressing, more muscle fibers will be working under that continuous tension, increasing the results you get in terms of hypertrophy (fiber growth). Now, when we get to the final partial flye set, the goal is hyperplasia (fiber splitting). The muscle fibers are exhausted and pumped up with blood from the first two parts of the giant set. Now the high tension in the stretched position is going to be a serious emergency to the muscle fibers and (hopefully) induce splitting of the muscle fibers.

It's a tough giant set but, when you're done, you'll know that you had a great growth-producing set!

"Pre/Post-Exhaust Stretch Giant Sets" can be done with ANY bodypart, making it a very versatile technique. Here are some examples of exercises you can use with each bodypart:

Chest:
Any flye movement and any pressing movement

Back:
Dumbell pullovers and any rowing or pulldown movement


Shoulders:
Cable lateral raises or leaning dumbell lateral raises (leaning against a solid object with your working arm hanging down in front of you) and any pressing movement

Quadriceps:
Sissy squats and squats, split squats or leg press

Hamstrings:
Stiff-legged deadlifts and leg curls

Biceps:
Incline curls and any general curling movement

Triceps:
Any overhead tricep movement and dips or close grip presses

Calves:
Donkey calf raises and seated or standing calf raises


When incorporating this technique into your workouts, I would suggest doing no more than 3 or 4 of these giant sets for the back, chest or thigh muscles and no more than 2 or 3 for the other smaller muscles. It's also not a technique you should use every training session - maybe once every week or two for a bodypart. It's very intense and demands a lot of recovery energy. Be sure you give your body and muscles the fuel they need to take full advantage of this potential growth!

Give this giant set technique a try in your next workout and let me know how it feels!

More Cardio

The Evolution of Cardio

By: Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS
www.TurbulenceTraining.com

I've been meaning to write this email for a long time. Today I'm going to give you the story of how I solved the problem of getting an efficient and effective fat loss program finished in 45 minutes. Essentially, how I invented Turbulence Training.

Let's take a trip down memory lane to the winter of 98-99. I was but a lowly grad student, studying the effects of androstenedione (the supplement taken by the might Mark McGwire during his record-breaking home run quest in '98).

In my study, we had subjects use Andro and go through a couple of weight training sessions. After the workouts we collected blood samples, and by February of '99 I was stuck in the lab, analyzing these blood samples using some fancy radio-active isotopes.

And when I say stuck in the lab, I mean STUCK. I'd get there at 7am, and record my last data point at 11pm. Sixteen hours of labby-goodness. And if I wasn't there, I was downstairs in the medical library, studying papers on testosterone and training.

Now coming from a very athletic background, this sedentary lifestyle didn't sit well with me. But there I was, studying for a degree in Exercise Physiology and left with no time for exercise. Or so I thought. I was actually left with a 50 minute window once per day of "down-time" while the lab's gamma-counter analyzed my study's blood samples.

That left me 50 minutes to get to the gym (5 minutes across campus) and get a workout in the remaining 40 or so minutes. I knew that if I applied my studies to the workout, I could get maximum results in minimum time.

As a former athlete, I knew that I had to find a way to stay fit and to avoid the fat gain that comes with working long hours in a sedentary environment. And I also had to stay true to the high-school bodybuilder I once was, so there was no way I was willing to sacrifice my muscle to one of those long-cardio, low protein fat loss plans that were popular at the time.

Instead, I had to draw on my academic studies and my experiences working with athletes as the school's Strength & Conditioning Coach.

I knew that sprint intervals were associated with more fat loss than slow cardio, and I knew that you could also increase aerobic fitness by doing sprints (but you can't increase sprint performance by doing aerobic training).

I had seen the incredible results of sprint interval first hand in the summer and fall, as the athletes made huge fitness improvements in a short time using my interval programs. I knew that intervals had to be the next step in the evolution of cardio.

And the biggest benefit of intervals? A lot of results in a short amount of time. I knew that I only had 40 minutes to train, and therefore I could only spend 15-20 minutes doing intervals.

Now onto the strength training portion of the workouts. I knew that a high-volume bodybuilding program wasn't going to cut it. But in the past year I had read so many lifting studies, that I knew exactly what exercises I needed to do to maximize my lifting time in the gym.

Those exercises were standing, multi-muscle, movements such as squats, presses, rows, cleans, and plenty of other standing single-leg exercises. I knew that those exercises would bring me far more results than those people sitting on machines would ever achieve.

And I also knew that I had to lift heavier than the average Joe or Jane Gym-goer lifts. I just knew that doing lighter weights and high-reps wasn't going to cut it. And a research study from 2001 later showed that I was right - when women did 8 reps per set, they had a significantly greater increase in post-workout metabolism than if they did 15 reps per set.

So I had my plan. Bust my tail over to the gym, through the cold, dreary Canadian winter afternoon, and do a quick but thorough warmup (specific to my lifts - none of that 5 minutes on the treadmill waste of time).

Once I got through the warm-up, I did as many sets as I could in the remainder of the 20 minutes alotted to strength training.

At that point, I knew that supersets were the only way to go if I wanted to maximize the number of sets I could do...so the non-competing superset of Turbulence Training was put in place.

And then I followed up the strength training with intervals, as I knew these had to follow the lifting, otherwise it would not be the correct exercise order. Remember, intervals first leads to premature fatigue. Lift first, cardio later. Forget that old wives tale about doing cardio first to burn more fat. That's junk.

You know, I remember the exact day and exact workout that this all came together into the Turbulence Training program. It hit me as I was finishing my intervals. I knew I had found something that was like fat loss magic.

Unfortunately, I couldn't find a way to put it in a pill. But I've been able to put it down on paper in Turbulence Training.

And from that point in time, I've tried to share it with as many men and women as possible. The same men and women that I would see day-in and day-out performing the same ineffective slow-cardio fat loss programs, and not making a darn change month after month.

And every day they would see me, soaked in sweat, feeling great and looking lean, and finishing another TT workout. Eventually I'd notice that they weren't around as consistently as before, and then soon enough they would drop out.

And so here we are today...thousands of TT users later, with national fitness magazines like Men's Fitness spreading the good word about Turbulence Training.

Thanks for being a part of the TT Lifestyle Revolution, and for sharing this new and improved fat loss training and cardio system with the world.

So when you see someone frustrated with their ineffective fat loss program, tell them there is a better way. It's research-based, efficient, and most of all, effective. And yes, it goes against the crowd. But it works.

And it's now better than ever.
