TT Stage 1 W2D3: Turbulence Training Freebies

I just received word via Craig Ballantyne’s Turbulence Training mailing list that two of his TT-related manuals are available for free download through December 25:

I’ve actually used the bodyweight TT workout while traveling on vacation, and I can wholeheartedly recommend it as a worthwhile (free!) download. My glutes were sore for FOUR DAYS after doing the one-legged squats in the workout. It’s a great plan to keep around if you are interested in functional fitness (i.e. the ability to do unassisted pull-ups, full push-ups, pistols, etc.), want to build up your baseline strength before getting into a full weightlifting program or need a structured bodyweight workout routine to tide you over when it just isn’t possible to get to a fully-equipped gym. Hey, I’ve said stuff like, “Oh, I’ll just do some unassisted bodyweight stuff like push-ups while I’m on vacation,” too, but when it came time to actually DO said push-ups, I just didn’t–because I didn’t have an actual training plan.

There’s something about seeing a program fully printed out or written down that makes it that much more concrete (and likely to be followed).
