The Truth About Beginner Fat Loss Workouts

The last thing you want a beginner to do is long, slow,
boring cardio workouts.

Two reasons why:

1) Beginners will get an overuse injury from doing too much
exercise volume too soon.

I had many new clients come to me after injuring themselves
trying to get back in shape by doing excessive cardio. Please
don’t make the same mistake.

We had to spend weeks rehabilitating their injuries before
we could kick their fat loss workouts into high gear.

2) Long, slow, boring cardio doesn’t very work well – if at
all – for fat loss.

Research has shown that doing 300 hours of cardio (6 hours
per week for 50 weeks) resulted in only 5-6 pounds of
weight loss in American men and women.

That’s a waste of time.

So what’s a better beginner fat loss workout?

Let me explain.

FIRST, we start by doing a general bodyweight warm-up circuit.

Most old-school workouts tell you to do a 10-minute warm-up
on a treadmill, but that’s a waste of time.

How does a treadmill prepare you for a total body workout?

Answer: It doesn’t. Jokes on us when we waste our time with it.

In the Turbulence Training workouts, you’ll get proven
bodyweight circuit warm-ups that get you ready for fat loss.

SECOND, we do a lot of bodyweight resistance training, often
while lying down on a mat.

That’s right, you’ll discover how to work your body and
burn calories while LYING DOWN.

You’re going to be shocked by these exercises. In the
Turbulence Training Beginner Workouts, you’ll see how to
use total body exercises to burn fat with little or NO
equipment, all done in the comfort of your own home.

THIRD, we finish off with interval training.

And YES, beginners can do interval workouts.

Here’s how I know this:

1) Researchers have used interval training in all types of
populations, such as overweight beginners and even in
cardiac rehabilitation (talk to your doctor though first,
of course, if you have any medical conditions).

2) Research shows that subjects PREFER interval training
over long cardio. So there you go, I’m not the only one who
thinks cardio is boring – even subjects who volunteer for
research studies would rather do interval training.

3) The most important interval training fat loss research
study was performed on overweight beginner level women.

That study found that women who performed interval training
on a stationary bike lost more belly fat than woman who did
long slow cardio.

Case closed.

Fortunately, with the Turbulence Training Beginner Workout
program you also get my “Bodyweight Cardio” program that
replaces interval training if you don’t have a bike.

You can get that workout, plus three more beginner fat loss
workouts here – all for less than the price of a greasy
large pizza meal from one of the big chains:
