Turbulence Training Session from Northern Bootcamp

Turbulence Training Session

Turbulence Training is an alternative form of interval training.

It is usually done in short bursts and combines running, bike or body weight circuits  and strength exercises as alternate intervals.

The recent research on the effectiveness of turbulence training, to improve overall fitness, burn fat and build lean muscle is fantastic and it is a technique practiced by many professional sports players and athletes.

One of the major benefits, like HIIT training, your session can be done in 20 minutes and the afterburn effect will continue for sometime after your session.
