Title: 5 Ways to Do Fat Burning Interval Training
If you're doing the same long, slow, boring cardio workout over and
over again, then don't bother to expect any results.
You have to change your program.
You have to workout with more intensity.
You have to do shorter, less frequent workouts - using intervals.
Hopefully that caught your attention.
Shorter, less frequent Interval workouts. Yes, they will be more
intense. But I promise you, the bottom line from interval training
will be more fat burning and more fat loss. Basically, MORE results.
But even in your interval program you can benefit from variety. And
with all the interval options available, there is no good reason to
do the same interval program all the time.
So not only should you have variety within your training week (i.e.
alternate between two different interval training workouts, rather
than just doing the same interval workout each time), but you
should also change these workouts every 4 weeks.
To modify your interval training workouts, you can...
- switch exercise methods (even using bodyweight exercises for
- increase or decrease the length of the interval (while decreasing
or increasing the intensity, respectively)
- increase or decrease the number of intervals per workout
- increase or decrease the rest time between intervals
First, let's take a look at the interval methods. Here is my list
of preferred ways to do your intervals, starting with the best
methods listed first (based on my experiences)...
1) Sprinting outdoors (and hills might be the absolute best)
2) Strongman movements (Farmer's walks, tire flips, car pushing)
3) Kettlebell Swings, Dumbbell Swings, Sandbag Swings, or Dumbbell
3) Bodyweight interval circuits
4) Treadmill running
5) Stationary cycle (upright preferred)
After that, if you prefer any of these other methods, then go ahead:
- Stairmaster, Rower, Swimming (really only works for competent
swimmers), Elliptical & Crosstrainer machines
But I stick to my top 5 methods above - those are the ones that I
have seen work time and time again for men AND women to lose the
stomach and chest fat. Intervals will scorch those love handles.
In fact, Professor Steve Boucher of the University of New South
Wales in Australia, believes that interval training allows you to
achieve the magic of spot reduction, because intervals specifically
work to burn stomach fat.
As you'll see in the Turbulence Training manual, I have two specific
interval programs I like to use when clients get into my advanced
programs. I have found these two workouts to work the best, and
frankly, they are the simplest and easiest to follow.

rid of their belly fat.
"Hi Craig - First, I LOVE your program. In just under two weeks, I
have already started seeing definition - that has been my goal for
as long as I have been working out (a LONG time). Keep up the GREAT
work, and thanks!"

"I lost 14 pounds this month and the weight is just falling off me.
My wife says I now look like when we first met and I still have
more to go. I can fit into my old jeans again which is a big deal
for me. I just cut back on starches and bread and do your routine
2-3 times a week. I never thought in a million years that just
10-20 minutes of weight training followed by some cardio would get
me such steady results. I even cheat a bit on the weekends."
