– The Round Table Discussion (Bodyweight Workouts)

1 on 1 with Craig Ballantyne

Could you tell us a little about yourself?
– Where did you go to school?
– What did you study/major in?

1. What were your motivations to become a personal trainer?

2. How to put together a long term training plan (year-long maybe) using TT workout programs, assuming an average person who is not very over-weight and wants to be strong and lean? Books I have read all structure their programs using some sort of periodization, but I have not seen a lot of mentioning of it in TT manuals.

3. Regarding bodyweight training, it seems like in order to achieve a high level of “turbulence”, one has to use higher reps. Does this contradict the principles in the TT for fat loss program, that one should use moderately heavy weight and with 6-8 reps? In the long run, how should bodyweight training mix with free weight training.
