Most Americans Don’t Need Extra Selenium

Say Good-Bye To Crunches

By Mike Navin, CSCS

Admit it. You look at those abs on that male Adonis or female Goddess on the beach and think "Wow. I really wish I had a set of those." You're not alone. For the most part, people view the elusive six-pack as the gold standard of looking fit.

Want to know one way you're not going to get them? Doing crunches.

First, do you know any movement (well, almost any movement) that you do on a daily basis that looks like a crunch? For the most part, no.

Second, you use your abs in more ways that what you think. Go ahead and squat down. Guess what? You were just using your abs. You'd have to contract your abs when you lower yourself or, you'd fall over and hit your head.

When you do pushups, you have to contract those abs in order to hold your body in a straight line. Stand up from sitting down and again, the abs have to work in order to stabilize your body.

Let's not forget that as much as we want that six-pack for aesthetic reasons, more importantly we should want it to have a healthy midsection and to help support the spine. This is going to go along way in helping prevent other injuries to areas of your upper and lower extremities.

30 Minute Workout

So what are some exercises that you can do for the abs that aren't crunches?

One of the best exercises is called a Plank. Get down into a pushup position but rest yourself on your forearms and your toes instead of your hands and your toes. Keep your body in a straight line. No slouching, and no sticking your butt up in the air. Hold that position for 30-60 seconds.

If you want to make it harder, rest your arms on a stability ball.

A second exercise is a Side Plank. It's the same concept as the Plank, but you're going to turn your body to the side and rest yourself on your forearm (which is facing straight ahead of you) and on the side of your foot, with the other foot resting on top of the foot that is on the ground. Like the Plank, you need to keep your body in a straight line from your foot to your forearm with no slouching.

Lastly, remember, you're not going to see those abs unless you burn that fat that is covering it up. Which means, you need to get your eating in order, do interval training, and follow an overall fat burning workout.

The 30-Minute Workout offers all of that with 90 day workout plans (with no crunches…) that have different versions no matter if you've never trained in your life, have been training a few months, or have been training for 20 years.

Take a read of what others are saying about the workouts:

"I was nervous that I would not be able to do a lot of the exercises due to a particular knee injury (I was wrong!). I could feel myself becoming stronger as the classes continued, being able to hold certain moves longer, being able to push myself further, visible muscle tone in my quads and abs and arms also! Quite pleasantly surprised!! I would recommend it to anyone who is open minded to exercise, someone who wants to do a different type of workout, and is ready for results! I like the fact that Mike shows you different 'levels' of certain exercises you can do, so a lot of different fitness levels can participate."

3 Fat Loss Myths Debunked >>

Fitness Programs for Specialty Groups

A new trend in fitness is the targeting of fitness program for different groups of people. Rather than a “one size fits all” approach that simply looks to provide general fitness benefits without taking into account any particular needs of the participants (such as an indoor cycling class), these new fitness classes are being offered with particular goals and needs in mind.

Senior Adult Programs.
As the U.S. population continues to age and more of us are living longer, there are more people who would like to take part in structured fitness activities in order to keep themselves healthier. But the average senior citizen probably isn’t going to be interested in participating in a high impact aerobics or pole dancing class, so more classes are being designed to meet their fitness goals, as well as their tastes. Even popular mainstream classes such as Zumba (a dance-based class featuring salsa and merengue music) are adapting themselves to provide a version for senior citizens. (The senior version is known as “Zumba Gold.”)

Pregnant Women.
For years doctors have recommended that pregnant women continue to get some type of physical exercise throughout almost the entire term of pregnancy. But pregnancy requires that certain motions and exercises be avoided, and that the intensity of the workout not be too great. Traditional fitness classes simply aren’t structured in a way to be safe or effective for pregnant women. Fortunately, there are classes that take the particular needs of pregnant women into account. These classes are commonly offered at local community centers and YMCAs.

Children’s and Teen’s Fitness Programs.
Obesity rates among children and teenagers are at historically high levels. Kids don’t play the way they did in years past (with groups of kids from the neighborhood getting together after school and on the weekends), and many children no longer have physical fitness classes available to them at school. An increasing number of fitness professionals have taken note of this trend and have created programs tailored to overweight and obese children.

Workplace Fitness Programs.
As health care insurance costs continue to increase, employers are constantly on the lookout for ways to save on their premiums and to help their employees pay less on their own shares of the premiums. These programs can take many different forms. For example, an employer might wish to offer a group fitness class in a conference room within the office, or perhaps organize a few coordinated times during the day when employees get up from their desks and do some light stretching or movement exercises. Even sponsoring a group walk over the lunch hour is a great way for employees to slowly and easily get themselves in better shape. Introducing workplace fitness programs can also help to improve overall employee wellness, which can reduce costly employee absentee days due to illness.

Specialty fitness programs are a great way for people to find a class that they can feel comfortable participating in, and which can help improve their health.

The Pros and Cons of Group Personal Training

An increasing trend of in the world of fitness is individuals using personal training and group personal training services to help them achieve their health and fitness goals. Personal training is probably already familiar to many exercisers; it involves working with an experienced fitness professional who ensures that you’re using proper form and challenging yourself throughout the course of your selected workout.

Group personal training, on the other hand, takes the core concept of individual personal training – an instructor who focuses on the individual participants and adapts where necessary, rather than leading a group and focusing on pre-choreographed moves and exercises – and extends it to a small group of participants. As you consider whether group personal training is right for you, keep in mind the following pros and cons.

Pro: Atmosphere.
The atmosphere of a group personal training session is much more supportive than a typical group exercise class. Because the groups are small, and the focus is on interaction with the instructor, there’s a greater connection to the instructor and the other participants, which some exercisers find to be much more enjoyable.

Pro: Accountability.
When you have a greater connection to your group personal trainer (and even your fellow classmates) you’ll feel more accountable to show up to the sessions you’ve scheduled. This is a common – and effective – motivational technique for sticking to an exercise program; making yourself accountable to others can help you reach your goals.

Pro: Affordability.
Unfortunately, one-on-one personal training is simply too expensive for many individuals to afford. Group personal training sessions are much more affordable, and most exercisers will be able to afford making them a regular part of their workout routine.

Con: The Class Progresses as a Whole.
Even though the group may be small, it’s still a group. So even though the participants may develop and improve at different rates, the class will move forward as a group. If your level of comfort or fitness is significantly higher or lower than the other participants, then group personal training might not be a good fit for you.

Con: You May Not Get the Attention you Need.
Whereas one-on-one personal training allows the instructor to focus exclusively on the form and movement of their single client, group personal training requires that the instructor to divide their time amongst all participants. Even in a group personal training class you might not get the attention you need.

Con: The Competition Effect.
Even though the idea behind group personal training is to provide all the participants with an opportunity to grow and improve, there might occasionally be someone in your group who wants to turn every class into a competition. If you’re a competitive type, you might find these situations tough to ignore, and potentially a distraction that could derail your fitness goals.

The best way to decide whether a group personal training class is right for you is simply to identify the options that are available to you locally, and sign up to participate.

The TRUTH about cholesterol and heart disease

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States; one in every three deaths is from heart disease and stroke, equal to 2,200 deaths per day!

And it’s TOTALLY preventable.

Since February is “heart month” I want to share with you some pertinent information (from my friend and sought-after holistic nutritionist, Yuri Elkaim) relating to this important organ that keeps on ticking without you having to tell it to.

I’m sure you’re aware that there is a lot of CONTROVERSY about what causes heart disease, right?

One of the biggest controversies and myths has to do with cholesterol…

Is high cholesterol to blame?

Well, as early as 1936, researchers in the journal Archives of Pathology failed to find any correlation between cholesterol and heart disease.

A later study in 1962 published in the American Heart Journal found that among 106 cases studied, the level of dietary cholesterol did NOT affect plaque formation in the arteries.

Evidence from the August 1964 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association revealed that:

* There is no clear correlation between blood cholesterol levels and the nature and extent of heart disease.

* Cholesterol levels in and of themselves are meaningless.

• 1,700 patients with heart disease analyzed clearly show more heart-related disease with cholesterol between 1 and 250 than between 300 and 400 or higher! (an inverse correlation).

Pretty crazy, right?

Do you know your cholesterol levels?

Any even if you do, do they really even matter?

Well, not really.

My good friend, Yuri Elkaim tells me that there are really just 2 numbers you need to worry about with respect to your cholesterol.

And they are…

1. HDL/Total Cholesterol should be 25% (more important than basic LDL levels)

2. Triglycerides/HDL should be below 2.

Check with your doctor if you want. If they know anything about the current literature, they’ll be amazed at your knowledge.

My question to you is this…

If you didn’t know this information about this ONE topic…

What else don’t you know about your health and diet?

There’s probably a lot that you don’t know about.

And that’s fine.

But it’s also not your fault.

There is far TOO MUCH nonsense and conflicting information out there to begin with. You’re probably just sick and tired of it all. I know I am.

That’s why I HIGHLY recommend you learn more about Yuri’s Super Nutrition Academy.

=> Check it out here

It’s the only nutrition program that makes it simple to understand and master your diet and health in just 1 hour of learning per week.

Say goodbye to years of information overload, confusion, and frustration.

AT LAST, you have a solution that makes the complex universe of health and diet easy to understand.

If you are committed to being responsible for your health, then Super Nutrition Academy is an absolute MUST.

And when you get started TODAY, you save 40% OFF the regular tuition.

=> 40% OFF Super Nutrition Academy (ENDS TOMORROW)

#1 Tip For Greater Health and Happiness

Look around you. What do you see?

In most cases, miserable people who are desperately seeking something to give their lives meaning and a sense of purpose.

Why are so many people unhappy despite living in the most prosperous time in our history (ok, the last few years have been a bit tougher)?

If you want to feel happier, then it comes down to this simple concept…


Regardless of how much money we make, what kind of toys we have, or how cool we think we are, the most important factor determining our happiness is whether or not we’re learning and growing - making progress, if you will.

Think about it this way…

How do you feel when you’re stuck in rush hour traffic?

If you’re like, probably pretty ticked off, right?

You probably get really frustrated and just want everyone to get out of your way.

Why does traffic bother us so much?

Because we’re not making progress!

And the exact same thing happens in your daily life. If you aren’t growing as a person, learning new things, and making progress, then you won’t be happy.

It’s as simple as that.

And the exact same thing applies to your health.

If you aren’t growing and learning, well then…you’re dying.

It’s a law of nature.

Plants grow OR they die. There’s no other path.

All living organisms are the same.

So if you want to feel happier and greatly improve your health, then you MUST commit to learning about it and applying what you learn to better your future.

And that’s exactly why I think you should join our good friend Yuri Elkaim’s Super Nutrition Academy.

Not only will it GREATLY reduce your frustration and confusion about the hottest nutrition topics but perhaps more important…

It will educate you – literally to the degree of a nutritionist – to finally understand the complex relationship between food and your body and health, allowing you to make healthier decisions and be in total control of your diet and health.

Now, who wouldn’t want that?

==> Enroll NOW and get 40% OFF your tuition (ends tomorrow)

Imagine knowing more about nutrition than your doctor and most dietitians?

Imagine not having to rely on conflicting opinions, shady diet experts, or the latest diet to lose weight and master your health?

Now you can.

And it all starts with learning the fundamentals and growing from there.

There is nothing like Yuri’s Super Nutrition Academy anywhere.

In fact, if you were to pursue studies in holistic nutrition to acquire this knowledge, you would easily pay more than $5,000 per year!

Not to mention all the classroom hours you’d have to put in. No thanks.

Thankfully, Super Nutrition Academy is the only online nutrition course that makes it easy to master your health and all aspects of your diet in less than 1 hour per week!

Sounds really good to me.

You won’t be disappointed.

Why Cardio Doesn't Burn Fat

By Mike Navin, CSCS

It never fails. Everytime you walk into the gym, you see the same people on the treadmill running like hamsters for 60 minutes. If you're wondering whether there's a way to get better results than doing that over and over again AND cut the amount of time that you're doing it by half, then you're in luck.

Interval training is where you warm up for a short period of time, and then you do an all out sprint for a period of time, and then you slow back down and recover for a period of time, and then go to an all out sprint again, followed by a recovery period again. You can use a number of different modalities for this: sprints on a treadmill, on a stationary bike resistance is more important that speed), or my favorite: hill sprints.

When comparing slow steady state cardio to interval training, studies show that overall steady state cardio burns more fat calories as a percentage of total calories during the workout. But, interval training burns more fat calories and total calories during the workout. Let me give you an example.

30 Minute Workout

Let's say you burn 200 calories over 30 minutes of a slow steady state cardio session. Out of that 200 calories, 120 were fat calories burned. So as a percentage, 60 percent of the calories burned came from fat calories. When looking at intervals, you did the same amount of time (30 minutes) but burned 300 calories, but only 50% of that was from fat. But you burned 100 more calories using the intervals and you ended up burning 150 fat calories during that session.

There's even more. When you do intervals, you are forced to use the muscle fibers that are there for strength and power. When these muscle fibers are damaged, it takes a lot more time and energy to repair them. With slow steady state cardio, there's damage to the endurance muscle fibers but, it doesn't take much for the body to repair those.

Due to the amount of energy that is needed to repair the strength and power muscle fibers, your body has to continue for hours (if not days) burning calories to repair those muscle fibers. So even 24 hours after the interval workout, you could still be burning calories, whereas the recovery from slow steady state cardio is pretty much complete only after a couple of hours.

Overall, for fat loss, interval training is the way to go. It might not be easy (but the things you want the most in life tend not to be) but the returns are phenomenal compared to slow steady state cardio.

Bottom line, use interval training to burn that body fat and you'll see better, quicker and more efficient results rather than doing slow steady state cardio.

Take a read of what others are saying about the workouts:

I have been taking kick-boxing with Mike for about a year and was ready to move up to the next level and add a different element to my exercise routine. After experiencing the "trial" camp I knew it wouldn't be easy, especially with an injured shoulder, but you get enough options to work at your own fitness level. I have truly been amazed at how strong my core has become. I was recently on vacation and was able to traverse trails marked strenuous with no difficulty. I have also regained more use of my arm than I thought possible. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone at any age who is looking for a workout that will produce great results.

How to Get Faster Results with Ab Workout Finishers

A friend of mine recently surprised me by saying, "I just worked out, but I'm going to come back later today and do my cardio because I have to lose fat faster".

She confided in me that she was wanting to drop some weight, especially in her belly,  before "lake season" got here, because she's a big fan of going out on her friends' boat during the spring and summer.

I then told her that she didn't have to come back to do any cardio. In fact, I said, "You know, you can get faster results with a couple of tweaks and getting here a few minutes sooner ... all without having to do any cardio".

You should have seen the look on her face. She was puzzled.

Then it hit her.  She knew where I was heading.  "You're going to talk about metabolic finishers, aren't you?".  I replied with, "well, duh".  But I also told her I would look at her program and tweak it a little bit to improve her results.

There wasn't any big overhaul needed... just some adjustments.  I would hate for her to have to learn a whole new program.  That can be intimidating.  I also wanted to adjust it to where she can focus on her belly fat, which she was concerned about. She just needed ab workout finishers.

Fix the Warm-up

The first thing I asked her about was the way she warmed up. Unfortunately, she did what most people do, which was hop on the treadmill for 5-10 minutes watching MTV's Cribs.  You're not missing anything.  It's a mansion.  There's a bulldog.  There's a pool.  The countertops are made of gold and the fridge blends in because it has cabinet doors, too.  The end.

I told her to put in bodyweight exercises that will better prepare her body for the workout.  We plugged in Prisoner Squats, Arm Crosses, Pushups, Planks and more.  This will improve her workout performance, and due to that, she will burn more calories.  The warm-up was fixed.

Minor Tweak to Some Exercises

She actually had a pretty good program going for her.  We just made some exercises a little tougher.  We replaced the DB Squat with the DB Split Squat. I like elevating exercises to single limb movements.  They can be an effective change for fat loss.  Another thing we looked at was her Incline DB Chest Press.  She was amazed at the difference it made when doing a 1-Arm DB Incline Chest Press.  She never knew she could feel her abs work when performing a chest exercise.

Now the ab exercises - they were pretty rough...the sit-up machine and DB Side Bends.  I replaced those with Stability Ball Rollouts and Side Planks w/ Leg Raises.  That would be a big boost to her ab exercises, working her core more effectively, all without hurting her back like machines and DB Side Bends can.

The Finish for Better Results

Knowing she was concerned about her belly fat, I told her to knock out the cardio.  She was bummed to find out that excessive use of cardio increases your appetite.  That explained some of the cravings and munchies she was having.  I told her to incorporate some metabolic ab finishers after her strength session, which is a combination of intervals without cardio equipment and effective ab training to shed belly fat and increase your metabolic rate.  I had her try this one:

The Swingin' Core Ab Finisher

Do the following superset 5 times, resting for 30 seconds between supersets

KB/DB Swings (20)
Alligator Crawl (20 seconds)

Heart rate up?  Check.  Working the abs and blasting belly fat? Check. Using incomplete recovery for optimal results?  Check. Elevating metabolism so she'll rock the 2-piece?  Check.

That's the idea behind an ab finisher - to get the calorie-burning benefits of a finisher, along with placing in the latest proven ab exercises to trim the waist.  And needless to say, she was  pleased to find out that she didn't have to perform any "2-a-days" by coming back later in the day and performing cardio.

I told her by using a combination of a good diet, a solid workout program and using these metabolic ab finishers, she would be all set when it comes time to hit the lake on the boat.  By using finishers, she got to save time and spend more time in the waves drinking a cold one (bottled water... what were you thinking?). MW ABFS Group2 2 300x174 Faster Results with Ab Workout Finishers

If you're using metabolic resistance training and you make these few tweaks to your favorite workout program, you will get faster results.  It's actually a pretty easy tweak if you think about it. Simply leave work about 10 minutes earlier or skip hitting that snooze button.  Boom?  Boom.

Naturally boost your testosterone level

Guys, we have a BIG problem (and ladies this can impact your life as well).

Not only are we faced with age stealing our testosterone levels, but our food as well?

Truth be told, many of the foods you are eating could be messing with your hormone levels- leading to an ever expanding waistline, dramatic drop in energy levels, and a seriously decreased sex drive.

Oh, and by the way, did you know low-testosterone can cause health problems resulting in death?

That's no joke.

Fortunately, there are certain foods you can eat that can crank up your low-t levels.

Shocking Fat Loss Workout Review

You won't see any other fitness expert put their reputation on the line like this.

Today, Craig Ballantyne is giving you the eagerly awaited, no-holds barred review of the 2011 roster of Turbulence Training Workouts. He points out all of his mistakes in this completely transparent evaluation of his TT monthly workouts.

Not every workout passed with flying colors, but there were a few big and pleasant surprises from last year's roster - plus a few totally LEGENDARY workouts.

Now you might find this a little shocking. Why would an expert point out his flaws?

Well, because it is Craig's moral responsibility to come through for you, my friends, and even my family members who use these workouts for their health and physical transformations.

He also owes it to himself. Just as Dr. Evil didn't go to Evil School for 6 years to NOT be called Dr., Craig didn't go through 4 years of Kinesiology, 2 years of a Master's Degree in Exercise Physiology, and over a dozen years of training clients to NOT be the very best that he could be at helping YOU get results through fast, fun, effective workouts.

It is his reputation - and pride - on the line with each and every monthly TT workout, and this Report Card puts him in his place.

Last but not least, if the roles were reversed, he'd appreciate companies who he bought from doing the same for us, being honest and open about what their best products were and which ones aren't so hot. It's only right. Over to Craig...

The TT Workout Review - By Craig Ballantyne, CTT

The Grade of each workout is based on customer feedback, my opinion of the program, my expectations for the program, and how many Transformation Contest winners used the workout.

Here's the TT Report Card.

Jan. 2011 - TT 2K11 - Grade A

Each January I put together the latest "Flagship" version of Turbulence Training and give it the TT 2K moniker (simply representing the year it was created). Two of my first, and BEST programs ever are the TT 2K3 and TT 2K4 programs from the main Turbulence Training for Fat Loss manual that almost every TT reader has.

TT 2K11 is not just a compilation of what worked best for TT readers in 2010, but also what has worked for me in my own personal workouts. This first workout of the year is the benchmark Grade A for all that follow.

Feb. 2011 - TT Ballantyne's Day Muscle Massacre - Grade A-

After October 2010's "TT Resistance Evil", my evil twin bru Braigz CallEntyne came back from the dead to bring you the Ballantyne's Day Muscle Massacre workout. This is an advanced workout featuring the 'Monster' circuit where you hit squats, deadlifts, AND bench press. Get ready to be sore. But love it at the SAME time. Again, NOT for more accurately, I'd give it an F for beginners and an A+ for advanced.

Bonus March 2011 - Beginner Total Torso Training 2K11 - Grade C

This is the second ultra-beginner Total Torso Training workout I created (following January 2010's TTT workout). It's not bad, but not great. A good place for an obese person to start, but nothing to get excited about. Then again, it was just a bonus workout, so it didn't have all the 'pressure' of pleasing all TT members.

March 2011 - TT Switch - Grade B-

Personally, I think this is a great workout, but my opinion is not been shared by the majority of TT readers. No matter how much I promote this to TT members as a great program, few take me up on the chance to use this workout. Heck, I think that the cover alone deserve an A+. But alas, it earns a tentative B-, to be revisited if I can get a few more TT members to try out this unique program. It's so named because it switches up the traditional TT workout order. Also, despite the low rating it's not going to stop me from creating a TT Switch 2K12. Watch for this new and improved version for all TT members soon.

April 2011 - TT SuperChargerz Workout - Grade A

How can I give a collaboration with John "Roman" Romaniello anything less than a grade A? This was the fourth workout that Roman and I worked on together (along with three Clash of the Titans programs) and all of them have rocked. In fact, Clash of the Titans 1 is one of the most popular TT programs ever. If you're looking to get rid of the final 5, 10, 15 pounds with 4 advanced workouts per week to ignite your fat burning, this is one of your best bets.

May 2011 - TT Metabolic Resistance Training - Grade A+ (Legendary Status)

Each year this is ONE workout that changes the game in Turbulence Training. In 2009 it was TT for Buff Dudes and Hot Chicks. In 2010, it was TT Bodyweight Cardio 3, and in 2011 without a doubt the game-changer was TT Metabolic Resistance Training. It's tough, it's unique, and it's just downright awesome.

I had a lot of fun putting this 4-day per week program together, and TT users have had even more fun doing the workout. It combines two MRT days with two Metabolic Conditioning days for amazing fat burning results. This is easily the third best-selling TT program in history behind the original Turbulence Training for Fat Loss and TT 6-Month Deluxe Bodyweight Manual. Look for more TT MRT programs in 2012 (including the recently released TT Muscle-Metabolic Resistance Training).

June 2011 - TT for Meatheads Lucky #7 - Grade B

You don't know how much it hurts me to give a TT Meatheads program a B grade, but that's what it honestly deserves. Why the B grade? Because looking back, I know this program was rushed. It could have been another Grade A Meathead program if I just had a few weeks more to get TT Meathead Mike ready for his Vegas vacation. But that said, this program will still help you Get Muscle. Get Sexy. And Get Lucky.

July 2011 - TT Buff Guys and Hot Gals - Grade B

Aargh, I just cannot seem to improve the original TT for Buff Dudes and Hot Chicks program (February 2009) as much as I try. This was my 4th attempt, and despite being just as good, if not better, than TT Transformation I through III, this program still doesn't outshine the original from this category.

The TT for Buff Dudes and Hot Chicks remains the most popular program among TT Transformation Contest winners AND is the program that almost all TT members go to when they want to get as lean as possible.

Don't get me wrong, this workout still rocks, but I can't give it a Grade A because the original program set such a high benchmark. In any other category it would be at least an A-, if not  a regular Grade A program, but not when compared to TT BDHC

August 2011 - TT for Abs 2K11 - Grade C (Biggest Letdown)

My biggest disappointment of the year. Back in September 2007 I created a legendary program called, TT for Abs. I remember an ex-girlfriend yelling at me for the soreness inflicted upon her abs by that program - but snuggles, as my friend Roman would say, for the changes it gave to her body.

I was hoping for the same results with this program, but alas, no snuggles. Feedback has been sparse from TT Members and no TT Transformation Contest winners have used this program to claim their $1000 grand prize. Despite what I thought were some really cool unique ab exercises, it looks like TT members do not agree with me, and it's back to the old drawring board.

If you disagree with other TT members and agree with me instead, please let me know and maybe this program will get upgraded to a B or B+.

September 2011 - TT Super 6's - Grade A (Surprise of the Year)

Your feedback to this workout made my year. I was shocked at how many TT readers were overjoyed to finally have a 6-day per week program featuring six short workouts. If you only have 20-30 minutes each day to workout, this program is for you.  Looking forward to bringing you TT Super 6's 2K12 this year.

October 2011 - TT Metabolic Finishers - Grade A-

The only factor that brings this program down is the post-TT MRT hangover. That workout was an extremely tough act to follow in the MRT category, but these workouts will kick your butt and leave your muscles burning for hours afterward...all in a good way. If you love workout finishers and metabolic resistance training, then this workout might even register an A+ on your personal scale. Please let me know what you think of it.

November 2011 - TT Bodyweight Cardio 400 - Grade B+

Another program with a hard act to follow, the TT BWC 400 falls under the shadow of the TT BWC 3 from June 2010. While it still contains a new version of my trademarked 5 rounds of 5 circuit, plus a variety of other bodyweight only (no-equipment) workouts, it still wasn't enough to earn A+ status. But if you want to replace boring cardio AND even interval training with bodyweight-only exercises, then this is your solution.

December 2011 - TT 15-Minute MRT - Grade B+

The only reason this doesn't get a Grade A is because all of these sessions are only 15 minutes long. I suppose that could be a very good reasons for giving it an A+ grade, but I know many TT members want slightly longer workouts. And yes, you won't get super-maximum results in just 15 minutes. BUT...this is a perfect A+ for those who have super-crazy-busy schedules, or if you just happen to have an extremely busy month coming up.

So there you go.

Each year I write one program that becomes LEGEND. This year it was the TT Metabolic Resistance Training program.

Each year has one workout that is an incredibly pleasant surprise. In 2011 it was TT Super 6's (you just LOVED the six short workouts per week).

And each year one program fails to meet my expectations. Unfortunately, this year it was the TT for Abs 2K11 workout.

I promise I will do better in 2012. In fact, so far this year, in 2012, I'm five-for-five with ALL of the workouts I've created so far earning at least an A, and a couple of A+'s. Look for more great TT programs coming very, very soon.

3 Lean Body Fat Loss Tips

By Mike Navin, CSCS

Who in the world ISN'T looking for ways to burn body fat? Whether you're just starting out looking to lose some weight and get in shape, or you've been on that quest for the elusive six pack abs for the last five years, these three tips can help you get closer to your goal of a lean body.

30 Minute Workout

1) Stop With The Isolation Exercises

An isolation exercise is where you're only moving one of your joints at a time. Examples of these are bicep curls, tricep kickbacks, leg curls and extensions and calf raises. If your goal is to lose body fat, these exercises are useless. You need to focus on doing exercises that use multiple joints during the movement. Exercises that fall into this category are squats, lunges, pushups, rows, shoulder presses, chinups, and deadlifts. When you do these kinds of exercises, it causes more "damage" to larger sections of your body that are going to need "repair" after you're done with your training for that session. This means that during that repair process, your body is going to have to continue to burn calories to fix the damage. If all you're doing is bicep curl after bicep curl, you're not causing that much damage and it's not going to take that many calories to repair that small of a muscle compared to the sizes of the larger muscles such as your back, chest, shoulders, and upper legs.

2) Stop Obsessing Over Food

There's a lot of information out there about what foods to eat, not eat, how much to eat, and when to eat when it comes to fat loss so give this a try as it's very very simple: Eat like people ate 20,000 years ago. Only eat twice a day and eat as much as you want of lean meats, vegetables (except potatoes), any possible fruit you can find, nuts, and various oils (walnut, olive, and canola) and non-salt spices. Stay away from dairy, beans, wheat products (pasta, bread, rice, etc), NO ADDED SALT OR SUGAR, no bacon or sausage, and obviously, no junk food.

3) Do Interval Training

Interval training is where you warm up for a short period of time, and then you do an all out sprint for a period of time, and then you slow back down and recover for a period of time, and then go to an all out sprint again, followed by a recovery period again. Try doing this: Warm up for 3 minutes, then sprint all out for 30 seconds, then slow down for 90 seconds, and then repeat the sprint for 30 seconds again. Keep doing this until you've done 8-12 of the all out sprints. These are great workouts and it follows the same concept as number one above in that it takes more time to "repair" the damage after the workout thus, you continue to burn calories making those repairs for hours, if not days after you've completed the workout.

Take a read of what others are saying about these workouts:

"I lost fat and inches all over, my waist, hips, thighs, abs; all the areas that I wanted to and I have also tightened & toned my entire body. The classes have also increased my endurance level and turned up my metabolism. Very, very pleased with the results. Fantastic! I was surprised by how QUICKLY I saw the benefits. The classes are difficult and I expected to see results, but the results came very quickly! I would recommend this class to anyone who is serious about turning their body into a lean, mean fat burning machine!"

BMI, Body Fat And Health - The Truth

Though one of the most popular tools used today to determine whether someone is at a healthy weight or not is the BMI, body fat and lean muscle tissue don't figure into the equation. This has led many experts to discount BMI as an archaic measurement that isn't accurate for many people. What is BMI, and why is it a good measure for some, maybe, and completely wrong for others?

BMI, or body mass index, was created in the early 1800s by Adolphe Quetelet. Because of that, it's sometimes called the Quetelet index. It's nothing more than a way of comparing a person's weight to his or her height, and determining if his or her weight falls into a healthy and normal range. The BMI is still used today pretty much as it was when Quetelet invented it.

The formula for figuring BMI (body fat, bone and frame size, muscle and body type aren't included in that) is this: Take your height in meters squared (your height times itself) and divide your weight in kilograms by that number. For example, if I'm 5 feet tall, that's about 1.5 meters. To square that number, take 1.5 times 1.5. The result of that is 2.5. So if I weigh 120 pounds, that's about 54.5 kilograms. Divide 54.5 by 2.5 and I get 21.8 as my BMI. The normal weight range is from 18.5 to 24.9, so 21.8 is classified as a normal weight. Underweight is considered 18.5 and below, while overweight people will calculate a BMI of 25 to 29.9. A BMI of 30 or greater indicates obesity.

BMI, body fat and general health can all be used as signs of how fit a person is. But where general health is pretty self-explanatory and the percentage of body fat clearly shows whether a person gets enough exercise or not, BMI is a bit trickier.

People with a lot of muscle don't show accurate BMI readings. Because muscle weighs so much heaver than fat but takes up less space, a relatively small statured person can carry a lot of muscle weight without looking huge. BMI doesn't take that into account. Football players, professional wrestlers, bodybuilders, and virtually any athlete who has a lot of muscle is going to measure as overweight and even obese according to the BMI. So it's not accurate for them. Is it accurate for everyone else?

The answer to that is yes, and no. It depends on you. The BMI typically doesn't show an accurate result for children. And extremely tall or large-framed people will show overweight or obese classifications more easily because of the extra weight from their bones and muscles. So for very short, tall or muscular people, the BMI appears to not be a good tool.

There's also no distinguishing between men and women in the BMI. Body fat is more natural for women who are supposed to have more than men, so some sort of distinction in the measurement of the sexes would help the BMI's accuracy.

Increase Your Physical Strength Just by Using Your Mind!

Sounds like one of those too-good-to-be-true claims, we thought. But researchers at Bishop's University in Quebec recently conducted a study* which indicated that mental training alone could increase muscle strength.

The two-week study took 30 male university athletes and divided them into three groups. The study focused on the hip flexor muscles, since that is one muscle group that can't be readily exercised in other contexts or with free weights.

reach your sports performance goals with hypnosis

One group performed physical training with a hip flexor weight machine; one group mentally practiced hip flexions at increasing amounts of weight; the third group did neither. At the end of the study, the group doing the physical exercises had increased its strength by 28.3%, which is not surprising. The group who did nothing not unexpectedly saw almost no difference. But what's astounding is that the guys who practiced only mentally saw their strength increase by 23.7%!

The bottom line of the study isn't that we don't need to exercise—of course we do—but rather that empowering your mind in order to improve your body can really enhance your performance!

We were intrigued by how much this mind-body connection can improve performance, so we did some checking around. Hypnosis is one of the most effective and safest ways to get into the zone. And Core Sports Performance, an audio hypnosis program from The Hypnosis Network, is by far the most thorough, professional, and effective program on the market.

"Deliberate practice": what separates the merely good from the great

"He's just a natural" is what people always say when trying to explain the greatness of a Tiger Woods or Pete Sampras. This belief that you have to be "born" to the sport is both commonplace—and wrong.

A recent article in the Harvard Business Review by some noted researchers totally debunks the myth of "the natural."* Studies by more than 100 scientists consistently and overwhelmingly proved this: experts are always made, not born.

reach your sports performance goals with hypnosis

Moreover, the studies show that the great ones in any field do something the average ones don't: they achieve greatness by hours, days, and years of always practicing deliberately.

To achieve success, you not only have to work at it, you have to work at it on purpose. You don't get better just by playing. As the authors of this article say, "Living in a cave doesn't make you a geologist." Just playing a couple of sets or a few rounds several times a week isn't going to make you a better player either. You have to continually set goals for yourself, and you have to put your entire self into it.

Putting your whole self into your practice means getting your mind into it too. Why? Because, Tiger Woods recently said, "The mind controls the body, so if the mind tells the body what to do, it will just do it. It's a matter of getting the mind under control, which makes your body respond."**

So what do you do to learn how to get in the zone mentally and stay motivated to continue to improve physically? Hiring a private coach would be awesome, but not practical for most of us. After researching various methods, we think we've found a great answer: audio hypnosis.

Getting in the zone has never been safer, faster, or more effective. Dr. Jack Singer, a nationally recognized sports psychologist, has created a powerful program called Core Sports Performance to give you that mental edge that will spur your increased prowess in whatever sport you choose. And, because the program's on CDs, you've got your coach whenever you need him. The program comes from The Hypnosis Network, a company that works only with licensed mental-health professionals like Dr. Singer.  And this company is so sure of the effectiveness of its programs that it gives you a one-year money-back guarantee.

Ignore These 7 Nutrition Lies: Leave Your Health Exposed to a Chilling Attack

How many more fat diets, books, and narrow-minded nutrition experts will it take until someone puts an end to all the MADNESS?

We buy books and magazines that offer conflicting insights into why we overeat and what is and isn’t healthy.

There are publications that promote easy weight loss by eating a lion’s share of protein and acai berry pills that promise a flat stomach without changing your diet.

And to add to the confusion and despair...

There are self-proclaimed experts who tell us that fruit is bad, others say fruit is good. Dietitians recommend white bread for hospital patients, diet coke for diabetics, and pasta as a “good” carb.

Our national “food guide/pyramid” tells us that processed and fortified foods (like soy and tofu) should make up a large portion of our dietary intake, especially if we’re vegetarian.

In the end, the overwhelm of conflicting diet advice and “quick fix” products offer virtually no long-term return on investment—measured, of course, in pounds permanently lost and health improvement.

If they did, then we wouldn't see studies like the one in The New England Journal of Medicine (2006) which reported that most people who participate in weight-loss programs regain about one-third of the weight lost during the next year and are typically back to baseline in three to five years.

Are you one of them?

If you’ve reached your breaking point from the all confusing and conflicting diet information out there and finally want solid, concrete answers to a number of your pertinent health and
nutrition questions, then now's your LAST CHANCE to download our friend Yuri's brand new report, "BIG FAT FOOD LIES: The 7 Nutrition Lies That Are Keeping You Sick, Fat, and Frustrated".
