Turbulence Training for Fat Loss
Former Notre Dame Quarterback Brady Quinn has the ultimate beach body
physique. A chiseled chest, rock hard abs, and defined arms to go along with
low body fat.
He built his body training at Athletes Performance in Arizona. But more
importantly, he didn't build it with machines or slow cardio. That's not
what you need to build a cover model physique.
In fact, Brady built his muscles and abs with the basics. He did squats,
presses, dumbell rows, and bodyweight exercises. All forms of exercises you
can do at home to build muscle and burn fat.
Brady also avoided traditional high rep workouts to get cut. These so called
toning workouts are a waste of your time. If you want to get muscle, and to
get rid of fat, you need to use multi-muscle movements and to do them for
about 8 repetitions per set - not 15 to 20 repetitions per set.
For the full rundown of Brady Quinn's workout program, pick up the July 2007
issue of Men's Health magazine. If you can't get the magazine, here are some
simple rules to follow to gain muscle and lose fat:
1) Use basic exercise movements, such as squats, presses, rows, pushes, and
2) Use a resistance that allows you to perform about 8 repetitions per set.
3) Use supersets, to get more exercise done in a short amount of time.
4) Finish your workout with interval training, not long slow cardio.
Interval training promises you more results in half the workout time.
Training with the basics in a lower rep range will build muscle and boost
your metabolism, so you are burning fat 24 hours a day. Forget about the fat
burning zone of slow cardio workouts, that's an inefficient way to workout.
