Regarding the question about my training for this transformation contest:
Over the past few months I have spent a great deal of time and effort researching and studying the art and science of fat-loss.Two of the most knowledgeable guys in the world on the subject are Craig Ballentyne, Men's Health magazine writer and author of Turbulence Training and Alwyn Cosgrove, author of Afterburn Training, who I have already mentioned. The two programs are more alike than different and they have proven track records.
I have adapted the principals of TT and Afterburn to my bootcamp classes and to applied them to Kettlebell training. Craig was interested enough to interview and have me write an article on the subject for his membership site http://www.ttmembers.com/ .
The simplified formula is this: Alternating/supersets of non-competing full-body movements + Intervals. Also known as hard freakin' work.
This is the basic template I have been using for clients and will be using for myself for the next several weeks.
Here is yesterday's workout:
