How to GAIN Muscle & LOSE Fat at the SAME Time

By Craig Ballantyne, CTT
Certified Turbulence Trainer

Lame college professors and cardio addicts like to tell you that you can't do this. They say it's impossible.

That's what "they say".

This workout proves them wrong

Listen, I've been in the business for almost 20 years, and I've been in the gym (working out or training others) for 20 hours a week for over a decade. I know what is possible more than those naysayers.

I know you CAN gain muscle and lose fat at the SAME time.

Check out this amazing success story from one of my best clients:

"Hey Craig, I'm finishing up the last week of TT Gain Muscle/Lose Fat 2... And it's living up to its name. I've gotten way bigger through the upper body... lats are filling out... And waist is slimming. I benched 245 five times on my fourth set on Saturday... Beast mode! Wanted to thank you again for helping me out. I'm loving it! I've gone from a fatty to one of the strongest guys in the gym." - Sean Goldsmith

And this type of training works for ALL age groups and both genders, too.

One of my workout programs was used in a study where women gained 4.2 pounds of muscle and lost 3.5 pounds of fat in just a few weeks.

BOOM. They did the impossible, and I bet they looked fantastic.

(Reference: Med Sci Sports Exerc. Body Composition and Strength Changes in Women with Milk and Resistance Exercise. Josse, A.R., et al.)

In another study, men AND women OVER the age of 60 gained 4 pounds of lean mass and lost 4 pounds of fat in 12 weeks with resistance training. Imagine how great they felt...and they didn't even change their diet. That's the power of these workouts.

(Reference: Am J Clin Nutr. 2007 85(4):1005-13. Resistance training and dietary protein: effects on glucose tolerance and contents of skeletal muscle insulin signaling proteins in older persons. Iglay, H.B., et al.)

So because YOU and I know better than these stuffy professors, I'm having a "Prove them wrong!" sale this week on my Gain Muscle-Lose Fat program this week only. The sale ends on Thursday night.

Use this workout to Gain Muscle and Lose Fat at the SAME Time

Save over 67% on the regular price of this workout so that you can start gaining muscle and losing fat at the SAME time during the holidays.

5 Critical Keys to Kill Your Cellulite

One of our contributing experts recently put together a kick-butt article that is the “Do This – and DON’T Do That” rule-book when it comes to getting rid of unsightly cellulite dimples, shadows and ripples. It’s a quick read with some eye-opening tips and a helpful video that you’ll want to see while it’s still up.

-contributed by – Joey Atlas, Womens’ Body Enhancement Specialist — M.S., Exercise Physiology"

"Ask any woman on the street what the definition of "cellulite" is and you'll get a confused variety of answers. From “toxic fat pockets caught in the skin” to “bands of fiber pulling down on the skin” and many odd things in between…"

no more cellulite orange bikini

Cellulite Gone – Bikini On

The truth is: most people really don’t know what “cellulite” actually is, or, what causes this odd appearance of the lower body trouble zones…"

This is no surprise as there actually is no such thing as ‘cellulite’… So how do we get rid of something which doesn’t exist?"

Here’s the answer:

"The word, “cellulite”, was cleverly made-up several decades ago, in a European beauty-spa, to DESCRIBE the bumpy, shadowy and dimpled appearance of skin in the lower body trouble zones of the female body. (butt, hips, thighs, legs)"

The beauty spas then started cashing-in and profiting big-time by marketing "beauty" services and products to get rid of "cellulite". And if you're like most women who've been challenged by this issue, then you probably already know all of those passive and superficial beauty treatments do not get rid of the dented shadows and mushy dimples on your buns, legs and thighs."

In order to make your lower-body smooth, tight and attractive, there are 5 steps to follow.

Here they are:

5 Critical Keys to KILL Your Cellulite

1: You cannot get rid of the dimples and shadows (cellulite) by rubbing an odd gel, weird lotion or goopy cream on your trouble zones and problem spots.

So, stop using them – as some can actually make your cellulite worse.

Despite the fact that there are dozens of supposed ‘cellulite reduction creams’ on the market, there is no possible way for any one of them, no matter how expensive, to get rid of your cellulite. Cellulite is not a skin problem. Its an underlying structural issue, that can only be corrected by reversing the cause of atrophied muscle fibers directly beneath your “cellulite” trouble spots."

Since the squishy dimples and shadows are a superficial symptom of a problem below the surface; it’s impossible for the creams, lotions or gels to have any physiological impact on the cause of the issue…"

2: Risky and expensive ‘medi-spa treatments’ can only reduce your bank account – not your cellulite problems. And there are many consumer reports about women being seriously scarred or injured as well.

Stay away from these as the FDA reports show women who’ve been scarred or injured for life.

Painful, dangerous and uncomfortable services ranging from endermologie to body-wrapping have been proven to be totally ineffective when it comes to treating cellulite. However, advertising and marketing loopholes allow these services to be cleverly marketed to desperate women who are at wits end with the unattractive dimples and shadows on the lower-body problem areas."

3: The unattractive dimples, shadows and saggy ripples known as cellulite are not ‘genetic’ and you are NOT stuck with them forever if you have them.

Falsely believing this will prevent you from getting rid of your cellulite. So, don’t entertain this nonsense for 1 second.

These two ridiculous myths are often passed around by ‘neighborhood know-it-alls’ – and many women actually believe these 2 myths – especially if they haven’t found the right way to get rid of the cellulite. Whats even more alarming are the number of doctors who also believe in and foster these 2 demoralizing falsehoods.

Yes – it is common to see a mother and daughter, both with the lower-body "orange peel" look, BUT this doesn't mean cellulite is genetic – it simply means both women have not found a way to lift, tone and firm the muscle layers under the dimpled, saggy skin."

4: You can get rid of cellulite, regardless of your age – or when you began to notice it."

Since cellulite is a structural issue (muscle) – it can be fixed with simple and unique body movements which target the cellulite areas."

These types of moves can be followed by any woman, regardless of her age or fitness level. And it doesn’t matter if the cellulite started in the early teen years – or after pregnancy – or after menopause – it’s still a structural issue that results from soft, un-toned muscles underneath the saggy, dimpled, shadowy skin."

5: The only proven way to permanently get rid of the dimples and shadows of cellulite is through a series of simple, yet specifically targeted lower-body movements"

These unique movements focus on lifting, shaping and toning the muscle layers so they gently push outward against the skin – to bring back the smooth, tight and sexy appearance, while burning off any excess flab, if there is any."

This is how regular women reverse the cause of cellulite dimples and shadows… AND, if there happens to be any excess fat in those zones – it will be burned off as fuel by the muscles. This bonus of losing any unhealthy excess body-fat is nice because it reveals a great body and it works wonders for your health profile."

BUT you won’t learn about these unique slow-tempo movements in the gym or your local health club."

These body movements are NOT done with typical weights and machine type exercises." "Most regular fitness instructors don’t even know about this type of targeted cellulite-killing method. (click to watch video)"

These muscle-stimulating movements can be done right at home, in total privacy."

The female lower-body has over 90 muscles…"

Picture those 90 muscles BENEATH your skin’s surface in your legs, butt, hips and thigh zones. That’s where the magic happens in regards to true removal of mushy dimples and saggy shadows in the trouble spots and problem areas…

Despite what most women have been led to believe, there is a critical difference between a ‘general workout program’ – and a laser-focused, cellulite removal method. The sweetest benefit of this is; you don’t need access to a health club or fitness center." …"Just click PLAY on this video by Joey Atlas, (M.S., Ex.Phys.) and get it started now:" (it opens in a bigger screen so you don’t miss a thing)

These are simple, unique moves you can start doing today, right in the privacy of your own home. And if you start this type of targeted muscle stimulation method today – you will start feeling results within 2 weeks and seeing results within 3 to 4 weeks."

Oops I forgot to post the workout

Oh dear, I forgot to add the workout that Shawna wanted me to give you from her new program Challenge Complexes. You can check that out below, but first I wanted to tell you a bit about this style of workout.

There’s a trick to putting together ‘complex’ workouts. Often times trainers try to make things challenging by putting together impossible exercise combinations. Shawna says that complex workouts really need to be simple in their design so as not to cause strain on certain muscle groups and to ensure you stay injury free.

That’s what I love about her workouts: safe, effective and fun. They’re full of variety and challenges but they aren’t ‘impossible’. Shawna is as experienced a trainer as they come. She’s in incredible shape at 50 and uses complexes in her training.

Okay, here’s the workout:

Let’s Get This Started (Reps and rounds)

Equipment: dumb bells

Choose a weight that you can use for ALL exercises.

Do 8 reps of each exercise. Try not to put the DB’s down the entire set, do 6 rounds. Time your workout, match the time with increased load the next time out:

· DB push up (hands on dumb bells)

· Spider crawl (per leg)

· Weighted burpee (squat thrust to deadlift)

· High pull

· Front squat push press

· Rest 30 seconds to one minute

Do 6 rounds

Have fun with that one and make sure to check out her plan.

Challenge Complexes is only $19 this week. That works out to about 70 cents a workout.

Money well spent, even during the holidays when I know that money can get tight.

EXACT routine that will get you abs BEFORE New Year’s

Today I want to give you a chance to get your hands on the EXACT program you need to get your body in BETTER condition BEFORE the New Year even starts.

This guide will provide the perfect workouts to use so you can hit the sweet spot of fat-loss even before the holidays begin... all while building lean, defined muscle.

Look, you may already be feeling holiday stress, you don’t need to add to it by having long workouts or worse yet, NO workouts because you ‘don’t have time’.

With stress (even the stress from a long workout), your adrenal glands pump out cortisol, the fat storing hormone. You need a plan for quick and effective workouts.

=> Get the best complexes EVER here

Here’s exactly how it works.

When you use Shawna’s 20-minute complexes, you’ll automatically "shift" your hormones into fat-burning mode WITHOUT stressing out your adrenal glands which release fat-storing cortisol with long workouts.

...And it has nothing to do with just shortening your workouts.

Inside this system you’ll discover a new and different way to train that will:

-replace boring cardio

-improve your athleticism

-build muscle

-boost metabolism

-burn fat

This extreme fat-burning method strategically "spares" hormones, like growth hormone, by using a specific combination of strength training and "just enough" high intensity exercise to hit the SWEET SPOT of fat-burning.

==> 20 minute EXTREME fat-burning breakthrough <------ do NOT click yet

Now, you do these simple to follow workouts right in the comfort of your own home. You’ll get coaching videos to guide you through each workout.

- NO need to spend time in holiday traffic.
- NO need for fancy equipment: just a barbell, a set of dumb bells and a KB.
- NO excuses.

Just get your workout done in 20 minutes or less.

You’ll love how you look and feel at the start of the New Year when everyone else is 8 – 13 lbs heavier.

So do yourself a big favor.

Grab Challenge Complexes and get abs for Christmas in just 20 minutes a day.

==> Grab Challenge Complexes here

The way I see it you basically have two choices...

CHOICE #1: Wait until after New Year’s, get fatter, regret you didn’t take action sooner, and try your best to get in great shape AFTER the holidays.


CHOICE #2: Start using Shawna’s Challenge Complexes today and take advantage of the PERFECT plan and strategy to guarantee you’ll be looking and feeling great by New Year’s and beyond.

Hmmmm...seems like an OBVIOUS choice to me :-)

Get the entire system and thank me later:

==> Start getting your body ready for the New Year NOW

Remember...it’s either the pain of taking action RIGHT now, or the bigger pain of regret after the holidays.

The best 20-minute complex you’ll EVER do

Of course you know that muscle is key to the fat burning process. Muscle is more ‘dense’ than fat meaning that it takes up less space in your jeans. Your body weight may drop or even stay the same weight, but your shape will drastically change.

And change is what it’s all about. Who cares what the scale says if you’re looking better naked and not ashamed to lift up your shirt and show off your abs?

These complexes take about 20 minutes <= Best complexes EVER

Lots of people are STILL using cardio to try to get their abs to show. Whether you’re doing low intensity cardio like running on a treadmill or even doing HIIT (high intensity intervals) you may be getting to a point where results are just not happening.

Are you strength training as well as doing cardio? If your workouts are too long you can run into overtraining PLUS encourage cortisol, which is the hormone that promotes fat storage.

This is the ultimate “hybrid” of cardio and strength

How about a scientific workout that manipulates your fat burning hormones?

Complexes involve incomplete workout recovery for lactic acid and GH production. This is paired with strength training moves that will build lean muscle, boost your fat burning hormones and reduce your fat storing hormones – in about 20 minutes. Bonus: More lean muscle means an increased resting metabolic rate to burn more calories even at rest.

It can be done… when structured right…

My good friend, Shawna Kaminski has a really unique and simple to follow plan for you using the power of complexes (the same type of training the hot celebrities use for their movie roles)

Take a look at it here

You’ll find cool workouts like this one below that she allowed me to share:

Workout 2 Six by Six (Reps and rounds)
Choose a weight that you can use for ALL exercises. Try not to put the bar down throughout the set. Rest up to one minute between sets.

6 reps of each:

· Bent over row


· High pull

· Front squat

· Push press

· Burpee with push up

Rest 30 sec to 1 minute

4 to 6 rounds

Even though Shawna is 50 years old, she’s literally the oldest hard body I know, she looks and performs like a woman easily 20 years younger. Her secrets WORK, her plans WORK.

You’ll get expert coaching every step of the way since each workout comes with a coaching video so you’ll know exactly what to do.

The perfect “anti-aging” workout design

Age is NO excuse for belly fat!

My good friend and super hot trainer (who’s also the OLDEST hard body I know) says: ‘Age is only a number and NEVER an excuse for excessive belly fat or being inactive. I hope your belly fat is listening here.’

It should be easier to take advice from someone who’s a little older that’s walking the walk.

Check out some of her secrets here.

It’s easier to dismiss advice when it comes from a trainer in their 20’s, one that hasn’t bore children, changed careers, had life experiences or otherwise been on the planet for more than a few decades. When you hear this from someone who isn’t a spring chicken, then your belly fat should be getting a little nervous.

Shawna has proven that there are multiple ways to maintain super high intensity workouts to get rid of YOUR belly fat while respecting your body. It’s not wise to go crazy on stupid training protocols whatever your age. You need to increase intensity to workouts slowly in a progressive manner that helps you avoid an injury disaster.

You’ll get the results you're after without the aging aches and pains you may think you’ll get with her intense workouts.

Take a page from Shawna K’s book, which by the way as visible abs year round without crazy dieting or training all day long. She has this for you:

Here’s a month of fun home workouts for you to use to kick your belly fat to the curb. You’ll need about 20 minutes with very little equipment and space.

You’ll get this FREE when you grab her Challenge Complexes before midnight tonight.

Challenge Complexes is a new program just released that uses minimum equipment to burn fat, boost metabolism AND build muscle in workouts that are 20 minutes or less.

Honestly, Shawna is one of the MOST respected trainers out there. Like I said, her body speaks for itself, she clearly knows a thing or ten about training.

This is better than intervals (intense)

I hate cardio.

Don't we all?

Well, sadly, no. When I go into my gym I still see row upon row of cardio machines jammed with magazine readers hoping to lighten the load of their belly fat. But it won't happen.

Did you know that traditional cardio increases your cortisol production and can lead to muscle and strength loss?

Also a recent study at the University of Tampa showed that adding ‘Jogging’ to a weight training program decreased strength gains by 50%.

If you're getting weaker you're losing muscle. And if you're losing muscle, your fat percentage is going up.
I don't know about you, but I'd rather be stronger and leaner than weaker and fatter.

Yet another reason NOT to do traditional cardio.

Here’s the ultimate cardio replacement

Sure, we all know about HIIT, but let’s face it, you can get too much of a good thing. If you notice that you’re feeling your performance is lacking, you’re getting weaker, losing muscle and generally just looking ‘soft’, it may be time to put HIIT on vacation.

This is better than intervals (intense)

One that will burn fat, boost metabolism and build muscle in 20 minutes or less?

If you want to look like (and feel like) a super hero, build your strength and coordination, and make everyday activities so much easier…

… just use this approach for 20 minutes or less.

This approach (once only used with athletes) will strip off body fat and build rock solid muscles at the same time because of the metabolic and progressive approach.

Shake up your program with something completely different.

Put ‘cardio’ and ‘HIIT’ on the shelf and try this.

Nutritional Secrets For Effective Fat Loss

If you're trying to lose weight and get a toned, sculpted 6-pack, then let me ask you something:

Are you sweating it out with hundreds of sit-ups and crunches?

If you are, you need to stop right now, because all the sit-ups and crunches in the world will NOT give you a 6-pack! And neither is losing weight! One of the most important things you can learn about sculpting a perfect body is that amazing definition in your muscles starts with FAT LOSS and NOT weight loss! The two are not the same!

Believe me, there are lots of other reasons why you can't shift stubborn belly fat or sculpt a solid 6-pack, and much of this has to do with the right workout plan and consuming the right foods in the right quantities...

And over the next few postings, I'll share those exact same secrets with you so you can be well on your way to sculpting the body of your dreams!

One of the reasons why you can't burn fat effectively is because even though you exercise consistently and train hard, your workouts aren't effectively tailored to your EXACT fat-burning needs!

You need to encourage your body to burn fat with a specific fat-burning plan which is right for YOU. Think about that for a second - Your body is as individual as a fingerprint and will react differently to the next person. Choosing the right fat-burning plan and learning how to incorporate this into your workouts will really help your body burn away stubborn belly fat.

High intensity strength training is just one example of the type of training you should be doing to burn away excess fat and help you burn extra calories hours after your workout has ended. Combined with the right nutrition, this type of training is one of the fastest ways ever to get in to great shape and sculpt a sexy mid-section.

And if you want to see what high-intensity training can do for you, watch this free presentation!

To your success!
