What is Turbulence Training?
Turbulence training is my method of doing strength training and interval training in one workout. So that you get in and out of the gym whether it’s your home gym or whether it’s a commercial gym. You get your workout done in 45 minutes.
We start with a 5-minute bodyweight warm up and then we do strength training for 20 minutes, whether it’s bodyweight training or dumbbells. Sometimes we use barbells but most people that I work with train at home so we just use dumbbells and bodyweight exercises - no fancy equipment needed.
Then we finish with 20 minutes of interval training. We are using the most efficient and effective training methods. The stuff that gets you the most results in the least amount of time. So we are not doing long, slow cardio sessions and we’re not doing 5 or 6 day per week bodybuilding training programs.
It’s like the old business principle - 80% of your results come from 20% of your efforts - so why do endless amounts of cardio and redundant strength training exercises?
Do only what you need to do and then get out of the gym.
Don’t live in the gym,
