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...

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….

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.

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...

Interval Training: A key to successful performance

Recently, every time I see “interval training” used on social media, it seems to be from a “burn fat fast” perspective. The general, full body, maximum calories/ minimum time approach. Great- interval training can be used as a tool to aid in body composition improvements, as a time efficient way to create/ enhance an energy deficit. If fat loss is your goal, interval training may be a good option. (for more on fat loss, take a look here). But… Interval training is way more than “training for fat loss”! Let’s go back to before the time of “I can have the body of my...
