Strength training and Ageing

Strength and strength training If I was to ask you to define what strength is, what would you say? Being able to deadlift 2x your body weight? Being able to squat 100kg? Being able to perform a pull-up? Being able to jump in the air? Being able to walk up the stairs un-aided?I like to think of ‘strength’ as an umbrella term that includes a few different ‘types’ such as:Absolute strength – think the maximum load that you can lift during a specific exercise Strength endurance – repeatedly exerting force against a resistance Power/Explosive strength – the product of force...

Calories and energy balance: It’s simple, right?

Calories in, Calories out. How many times have you seen this on your social media recently as the holy grail of nutrition? The only thing you need to consider. Generally, this is talking fat loss, and although the message is wholly accurate, it can also be pretty misleading- even harmful if not fully understood. So, here’s something for athlete’s, coaches and gym goers to try to cover some of the key considerations when we’re talking energy balance.  First off, what is energy balance? Energy balance is a simple concept. If energy in (Calories we consume) exactly meets energy out (Calories we burn),...

Weighing in on weigh ins for fat loss success!

What you need to understand about your weigh ins to guarantee fat loss success!Weigh ins can be one of the most valuable tools on your journey for fat loss. There’s no doubt about how useful they can be, and how much they can help your progress when used correctly. In fact, for fat loss plans, you’d struggle to argue that overall, they don’t add huge benefits to the plan, and allow a level of monitoring that can have a huge impact on overall success.Why then do people still dread the scale?Unfortunately, without understanding the basics of weigh ins, they can...

The Christmas Diet? Using “diet breaks” and “refeeds” over the festive period

Christmas is great, but the idea of a "Christmas Diet" doesn't really spring to mind. It’s a time to catch up with families and friends, relax, reboot, and reflect on the year. But, the January resolution is an issue. It’s the year-long equivalent of “I’ll start Monday”. It gives you an excuse to hold off on your diet, and by the time November comes around, most people are already thinking of waiting until the New Year.Why?It’s obvious- the idea of a diet over the Christmas period is dreadful. It almost feels like you’re missing out on Christmas, and for those...

Making the difficult Christmas Month a success in the gym!

December again. Christmas month. That time of year where you write off your progress until January, leaving you with 4 weeks of the new year simply getting back to where you were in November. But imaging entering the new year after making good progress in December, without being a social recluse? Here’s how to have the best end to the year! First off, it’s the same for me. Like you, December is a busy month for me. In fact, it’s probably one of my busiest months of the year in work. I have Christmas shopping to do too.  But that’s not...

Why poor exercise execution is destroying your results- AND how to FIX IT!

Exercise execution is under valued by most people looking to make changes to their body. We put all of the emphasis on the training programme itself- the exercises- order- sets- reps……. All crucial components, but without good exercise execution, probably over emphasised.Great exercise execution with a solid programme can lead to truly remarkable results. But, an equally good programme with poor exercise execution can lead to minimal results, and a world of other problems.So, if you want to make progress, let’s dive in…. Interested in building a great physique?Get our FREE 6 essentials to physique eBook here!hit the link...

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...

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...
