Whilst there is much debate about the negative affects of caffeine consumption these are largely in people that consume far too much of it or have things such as high blood pressure and should avoid too much caffeine. Research has shown that healthy adults can consume 400mg of caffeine per day (around 4 cups of coffee or 2 energy drinks) and the benefits of caffeine are huge, particularly when it comes to concentration and our performance! ☕️ Improve memory☕️ Decrease fatigue☕️ Improve mental functioning including improvements in short term memory☕️ Speed up reaction times And drinking coffee in particular has...

This one is heavy but bear with us 🧠 as it gives some real food for thought, particularly when it comes to learning a new sport, skill or movement within your existing sport. Skill Acquisition is the science that underpins movement learning and execution (more commonly termed motor learning and control) and, broadly speaking there are two skill acquisition options. Session-focussed improvement: where you or your coach will work through a session that has high reproducibility within it (competing the same movement over and over for rapid learning.) This type of learning can feel much easier as your brain isn’t...

We think it’s fair to say that in the past, physical exercise - particularly for those not necessarily interested in it has been deemed to be more vanity than anything else and whilst we couldn’t disagree more with this statement having competed in all manner of sports from rugby, weightlifting, marathons, Ironman Triathlons, CrossFit and pretty much everything in between, all in a pursuit to see what our body is physically and mentally capable of. 2020 and the start of 2021 have got us thinking, is it time to flip the script on what exercise and fitness mean to you?...
Who doesn’t love a good stretch in the morning? Stretching in the morning acts to loosen and realign the muscles after a period of time spent immobile. It also helps with circulation, getting our blood flowing after we’ve spent the night laying flat and our heart rate moving a little slower than it does when we’re awake. But, whilst a morning stretch feels incredible we often overlook the benefits of stretching regularly for our day to day health and fitness so we thought we’d take a little bit of time to look at just how beneficial stretching really is. 🧘♀️...
