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”.

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!

A body transformation is hard, that’s why. So, before you say “this is it! This is my time”, wait...

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...

Warm up and Cool down- Important considerations for your programme

The importance of The Warm up and The Cool Down Warming up and cooling down have long been universally accepted methods to both prepare for, and aid recovery from a training session. A well-planned pre-exercise warm up routine will not only prepare you physically and mentally for the activity that is about to commence, but also serve to reduce injury risk, and improve performance during the training session and in the days following. Whether you want to maximise your muscle and strength gain, burn those extra few calories on the treadmill, or stay healthy and pain free (and we should all...
