Interesting Research on a 4-Minute Finisher

Bodyweight Fat Loss CircuitOddly enough, I have a membership to two different gyms.
Back in February or March of this year, I decided to get a
membership at the gym up the street from where I live.

Obviously, I have a free membership where I train my client,
but the time wasted going there just to work out (when I don’t
meet him)several days a week didn’t make sense to me.

I probably saved myself at least 2 hours a week by making that
change.

Tuesday, after meeting with my client and knocking out some
photos for an upcoming program, I had planned to work out.
By this time, it was about 11 AM, and the cardio machines
were packed.

I thought we were beyond that. A long time member had come
up to me to chat. I asked her, “So what’s on your agenda
today?”, I asked. “Just doing some cardio”, she replied, as
she pointed to her belly fat.

So then, I picked her up and body-slammed her on the hard
floor. “You so deserved that”, I said. Of course, this last
bit just happened in my head. I call these “Scrubs” moments.
Remember that show?

Anyway, I then told her about a 4-minute finisher in Craig’s
Power Fat Loss that would give her better results than long,
boring cardio.

… and it only takes 4 minutes? Yeah baby. That’s power of
combining the Burpee/Chinup Combo, Spiderman Pushups, Low
Box Jumps and the X-Body Mountain Climber.

In fact, researchers at Queen’s University tested a Turbulence
Training style workout against long cardio.
(Reference: Appl Physiol Nutr Metab. 2012 Sep 20.)

22 college-aged women did 4 workouts per week for 4 weeks in
one of three groups.

Group A did 30 minutes of treadmill running at 85% max heart rate

Group B did 8 rounds of 20 seconds of a single exercise (burpees,
jumping jacks, mountain climbers, or squat thrusts) with 10
seconds of rest between rounds.

Group C did nothing (they were the non-training control group).

Results:
Both training groups increased their aerobic fitness levels
by the SAME amount (about 7-8%). That’s right, the short
bodyweight workouts (of 4 minutes) worked just as well
as 30 minutes of cardio. Shocking.

BUT…only Group B, the TT style training, also increased
muscular endurance in common exercises like chest presses,
leg extensions, sit-ups, and push-ups.

And finally, the TT style training used by Group B also
resulted in greater overall workout enjoyment.

interval-style training” will boost cardiovascular fitness
just as well as cardio while giving you BETTER improvements
in muscle endurance.

All in just 4 minutes.

So, don’t waste your time trying to get rid of that belly
fat with long, boring cardio. Use these advanced workouts
