New research shows bodyweight training is better than cardio
Researchers at Queen's University tested a Turbulence Training style workout against long cardio. short bodyweight workouts (of 4 minutes) worked just as well as 30 minutes of cardio.
Results: Both training groups increased their aerobic fitness levels
by the SAME amount (about 7-8%). That's right, the short
body weight 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.
The scientists concluded that "extremely low volume bodyweight
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.
Now you see why I use exercises like the 20-10 bodyweight
squat move that I call "Punisher X".
Bottom line: TT bodyweight workouts KICK BUTT.

This type of training is not just for losing weight if someone has hit a plateau it can be used to break that plateau as well. Most of the time, these plateaus occur because people rarely change their training variables over time. Many people stick to the same types of exercises for the same basic sets and reps and rest periods with the same boring cardio routine.
