We spoke about programming recently and how effective it can be at maximising your workout whilst also keeping you on track but what about scheduling? You don’t need to be competing in the Arnold Classic or Mr Olympia to benefit from scheduling your workouts each week or month. Sitting down with your diary for 30 minutes and working out what your workload or personal diary looks like before committing yourself to your workouts is a fantastic way of making sure you’re staying on top of your training and equally splitting it to hit all of your goals. This is common...

We’ve all seen that person at the gym, throwing weights around in the vague direction they’re supposed to go in the hope that the muscle they think they’re working is actually engaging! BUT, have you ever truly used the mind muscle connection method to maximise each and every rep? Mind muscle connection is often over complicated, in essence it’s our ability to mentally focus on and fully engage with the muscle we’re working and the best way to truly maximise its benefits is to drop your weight down, waaaaay down and focus fully on both the eccentric and concentric phase...

Protein powders and shakes are so often associated only with post-training recovery but their benefits far outweigh that of someone who’s just finished hitting the weights and chugging down their recovery shake. Swapping out one of your meals during the day with a nutrient rich protein shake is a fantastic ‘whey’ 😉 to keep on top of both your calorie intake and also pack a huge protein boost into your busy schedule.

CLA or Conjugated Lindleic Acid (good luck asking for that in-store) 😂 is an ingredient ideal for anybody looking to keep lean or drop a little body fat. It derives from safflower oil and is an essential fatty acid that isn’t able to be produced within the body. CLA can be found in really small doses in certain foods such as milk, cheese and beef. What are the benefits? Studies suggest that CLA can help aid weight loss by increasing our bodies BMR (basal metabolic rate). This is the rate at which our body burns calories, therefore an increase in...

There’s often a lot of confusion when it comes to Isotonics, what are they? Why are some gels / drinks Isotonic and others hypotonic? In simplistic terms, a drink or gel is ‘isotonic’ when it contains the same particulate concentration as blood. So, a drink or gel is hypotonic when less concentrated than blood and hypertonic when more concentrated. Think about the consistency of a gel for example, isotonic gels are much more fluid in texture, hypotonic ones thicker. All drinks and gels designed to meet an athletes' needs during effort must be isotonic or slightly hypotonic, but never hypertonic....
