First thing this morning, I completed Workout D, Phase 1 from Craig Ballantyne’s Turbulence Training “15 Pounds of Muscle in 8 Weeks” program. What a great way to start the day!
This workout is a bit different from the previous 3 workouts from Phase 1.
As noted in a previous post, this workout begins with Dumbbell Goblet Squats & then transitions into a series of Bodyweight Exercises performed in rapid succession with as little rest as possible between exercises & circuits.
My goal for the day: Ramp up the intensity from last session.
I’m happy to report that I was successful!! So how did I accomplish my goal? Taking shorter rest periods between circuits & virtually no rest between exercises within each circuit did the trick.
I ended up shaving 30 seconds off of my time from last session. While that does not seem like much, keep in mind that is the typical rest period I use between circuits. In essence, I eliminated a rest period today. And I sure noticed it!
Although today’s workout lasted less than 20 minutes, I can honestly say that I did not feel cheated in the least! Completing 3 BW Circuits in as little time as possible was a challenge. And now I have set the bar for next week. Will I be able to best my time from this week? I don’t know but you can bet that I am going to give it my absolute best effort!

I think the iPod was just getting ready to unleash a nice stream of tunes & then I confused it by hitting pause. Of all of my “toys”, I think I love my iPod almost as much as my guitar. Give me the ability to create or listen to music & I’m in heaven.
