3 steps to your summer body!

Here it is, summer body time! Another year where there’s a rush to the latest fat loss supplements, fads, and pre holiday gym sessions (the only time of the year where this is an important place to be for some people) to hit those weight loss goals. Here’s how it goes…. 4 weeks from the holiday- PANIC! Start exercising 4-5x per week- as much CV as you can! Over zealous diet- low carb- low sugar- low fat- low nutrition- low everything. If it has calories, its probably bad right? 2 weeks in- look and feel like s***Massive blip- take away/ alcohol Bad Day- F...

More than Macro’s! Why the over simplified view of fat loss fails.

Want to get lean (or hench- it works for either), but finding that regardless of tracking, somethings just not clicking? You NEED to read this. This is why it's about more than macros. I’m sorry. There, I said it. I Know everyone is looking for the most simple, quick fix answer, and unfortunately, this aint it. I’m just going to say it. Your body is not simple- there is no quick fix, and you’re more than just a machine. That said, get it right, and you’re rate of progress will probably be awesome! There IS a solution, but it takes some relatively complex understanding of...

3 Essential tips to build more muscle without spending an extra minute in the GYM!

Building Muscle is awesome. More food, great workouts, and usually a lot of sessions where you feel like a beast! But unfortunately, most muscle building programmes are a complete failure. Now, we’re told that we need to eat enough, and follow a progressive programme (If you’re not even doing this, then what are you expecting?), but this is only a part of the equation. People get into the finer details of some aspects, and forget the bigger picture- reps vs sets, this exercise is better than that exercise, and people who have the programmes and nutrition plans broken down to...

Stop working hard in the gym without results and progress!

Tired of not making progress in the gym? Here’s why, and what you can do to get back to progress! Fat loss plans, muscle building plans, fitness plans. All completely different, yet most fail for the EXACT SAME reasons. The fitness and nutrition industry has spent years telling people that a magic product or plan is the reason to get results, and without it you won’t be able to progress. Weight loss? Grab a shake instead of food! Muscle building? Follow this “perfect plan”! Fitness development? Buy this new product…. You see the trend? And by the way, all of these...

Why the Perfect Diet OR Awesome Training Programme doesn’t work

How to get in shape… 80% diet, 20% training…… Follow this nutrition plan to shred fat….. This training programme is perfect for fat loss…. All of these statements are fundamentally flawed, as fat loss CAN ONLY HAPPEN when both energy intake and energy output are accounted for. Let me talk you through how fat loss works, and explain that when it comes to fat loss, energy in should always be considered alongside energy out- not just from the training session, but over the entire day, repeated consistently the majority of the time for sustainable results. “Wait a minute… I lost...

How to diet on a body transformation!

Let me draw your attention to the title of this blog, “how to diet on a body transformation”. Not just the macro’s, calories and science of the body transformation- check out the following blogs to help you with this…. Fat loss for busy people!  Simple rules of fat loss!  but this one focuses on three awesome strategies that  make your diet possible, meaning you succeed on your fitness journey. Now, before I begin, let me start with the housekeeping. This WILL ONLY work fully if you have the following in place. You are tracking your nutrition, every day, for the duration of the plan....

Achieving your body transformation: The training programme

What does it take to achieve a body transformation? I’m talking about getting huge results in a relatively short space of time- build lean muscle, drop large amounts of bodyfat, look and feel great, be happy and healthy, smiling, laughing, and generally having only one regret…. wishing you’d done it sooner! Well, I’m going to let you in on some truths. Yeah, the end result may be this awesome feeling (and trust me, it will be worth it!), but why doesn’t everyone do it? A body transformation is hard, that’s why. So, before you say “this is it! This is my time”, wait...

Sick of the “just eat less food” Idea? How about eating more, for less calories?

Today’s blog post is a short, simple idea, yet one that is often missed by everyone looking to achieve fat loss. We are constantly being told to eat less food. But do you really need to? Basics again- we need to create a calorie deficit. To do this, we can use more energy, consume fewer calories, or both. Let’s target the consume fewer calories option (as this one is the key part of the equation). Of course, we can keep eating the same foods, just less. This will do it- you will lose weight (all other factors being equal). But… This...

What Cardio is Best for fat loss?

What's the best type of cardio for fat loss? I still get this question regularly, and there’s two answers that I can support.   Answer 1: It doesn’t matter, it’s about the calorie deficit you create. Answer 2: One type is better for you when compared with the other options.   Both are correct. Let me explain…. Firstly, we know that to achieve any real, lasting fat loss, we must use more energy (calories) than we consume. I’ve discussed this in depth in previous blogs, such as the simple rules of fat loss.  Great, so that’s simple….. whatever burns the most calories is...

How a massage can improve your recovery and results!

Adaptation to training is dependent on two key areas, the training itself, and the subsequent recovery. If the training is good, but recovery is inadequate, you will limit your adaptation. Not only this, but under recovery can lead to reduced performance, overuse injuries, and a generally negative mindset with regards to training. An intelligent programme with adequate time to recover is important, and sleep and good nutrition are two crucial factors when it comes to recovery and adaptation. However, massage can also be hugely beneficial to recovery, meaning you get more out of your training, reduce injury risk, perform better...
