Home Workouts With Bodyweight Exercises Video Released By Home W

In a new video from Home Workout Revolution creator Craig Ballantyne, Craig explains how home workouts with bodyweight exercises can be much more beneficial than regular cardiovascular exercise.
The video mentions recent studies where subjects that performed bodyweight exercises like burpies, jumping jacks, and pushups got much better results in muscular endurance than those doing cardio exercise such as treadmill and elliptical machines. Not only do people get better muscular endurance with bodyweight exercises, they were also able to achieve the same cardiovascular fitness level as their counterparts that did cardio exercises only.
More information about the studies and benefits of home workouts can be found at
About: Craig Ballantyne is a certified Turbulence Training and the creator of the new innovative Home Workout Revolution system.

Three Adventure Travel Ideas

Blue Hawaiian Helicopters

How was your last vacation? Did you have a blast? Did you find something fun to do? Was there some leisure too or did your last vacation consist of shuttling your family around, doing yard work and other chores? Did your last “vacation” end up being a “staycation”? Why not go for something unusual this year? When you have a small amount of time off, why not check into some of the adventure travels available near your home. Even if you don’t go outside your home state there are tons of adventures to be had. If you have the funds, why not spend a little on yourself and have a true adventure? Here are some crowd-pleasing adventure travels.

If you get joy from the outdoors and like to use your survival skills for living off the land, why not go on an Australian Walkabout? These have become noteworthy adventures, especially after one of the main actors on the television show Lost tried to go on one. The thought for an Australian Walkabout is that you and your adventure pals go out into the Australian Outback with a guide. When you get out on a walkabout, you are only living off the land. You hunt and gather all your food, build your shelter from materials on the land and take on all the “elements” that may come your way (weather, animals, etc). It can be described as extreme camping and can be very satisfying. Dude Ranches can be great adventure travels for the whole family. In Nebraska, the Ponderosa Ranch is a labor-intensive and vacation ranch. You can sleep in the ranch’s guest cabins. During the day you become a real working ranch hand. Guests ride horses and help round up and drive the ranch’s cattle from one pasture to another. During the evening, there are campfire stories, down home cooking and other wonderful activities to participate in. When you have some down time, you have a few different options, including hunting, fishing, hiking and taking a horseback ride. This is a great vacation for families because people of all ages and skill levels are welcome.

Do you enjoy the thought of being right up close to large animals? Have you always wanted to see exotic animals in their natural habitats? Why not venture on an African Safari. There are tours that go all around the African continent. Pick on of the many trusted companies and let them show you hippos, elephants and giraffes in their homelands. View prides of lions and packs of hyenas. Watch birds you have only see in the zoo. If you enjoy animals, a Safari should be your top choice for an adventure travel.

Adventure travels do not have to be extensive, expensive or extreme. Some of them provided daytime adventures, while bringing you back to a pleasant place to spend the night. The main goal of an adventure vacation is to have a blast and be active. Fortunately, there are adventures for just about everyone - even if they only have a couple days worth of vacation to accomplish it. When you start to outline your next vacation, why not consider taking a walk on the adventurer’s side? You can go to a calming spa for another vacation.
