How Did Turbulence Training Get Started

How Did Turbulence Training Get Started?

By: Craig Ballantyne, CTT
Certified Turbulence Trainer

Now I was in graduate school way back in 1999 and the strength and
conditioning consultant to the teams at the university where I was at and we
were doing a lot of research studies and I was stuck in the lab, where I
really didn’t want to be, but I was stuck in the lab and I was analyzing all
this research data.

Some days I was there for 16 hours in a row. I would have about an hour
break when I put some of these samples into these machines and they would do
their stuff.

So I had about 60 minutes when I had to get across campus and back to do my
workouts. So I probably had about 40 minutes of total time in the gym and I
just wanted to keep the body fat off and keep the muscle that I had
developed over the years when I had more time and was able to train a little
bit longer and a little bit more frequently.

So looking at the research papers that were related to some of the studies
we were doing, I found that this higher intensity work was getting a lot
more research done on it and showing the benefits of it, and also just with
the strength and conditioning work with the athletes, finding out which
exercises were most efficient and effective and you notice they come in and
if they only did the first part of their workout, when that was the main
exercises, they’d still probably get almost as good as results as people
that went through these hour, 90 minute workouts and doing all these other
type of isolation exercises.

So it was a review of all the people in the gym, the ones that I was working
with, myself, and then also the athletes, and just noticing who was making a
great success, where the good bodies were. Generally the good bodies are
found in the weight room, not on the people that spent an hour on the
stairmaster every day and don’t do any strength training.

Turbulence Training all came together putting together strength training
supersets at intervals, and that helped me get my workouts in in a short
time when I didn’t have a lot of time back then. And I finally put it all
down onto paper in about 2001 with the first Turbulence Training workout
after I had refined it a bit.

So basically it’s the basics refined, and now I’ve refined it even more to
include a lot of bodyweight exercises. So it ends up being very perfect for
busy people because it’s all dumbbell and bodyweight exercises.

You can do it at home in a minimal home gym set up, and it’s great
especially cause I’ve been writing for magazines like Men’s Health and Men’s
Fitness where it’s a regular guy audience as well as using the same
principles with women, and that people have about 45 minutes to do the
workout a couple times a week and they can do it before the kids get up or
after the kids go to bed, or they can do it at their lunch hour and still
get time for a shower and get back to their desk.

Turbulence Training is all planned to come together in less then an hour and
still get these results that the right people are getting in the gym right
