Why Weight? Where the Answers Lie to a Successful Body Transformation.

Why weight? Get started today! See what I did there? The Secret's Out For years, people have avoided the weights room. It's almost been like an exclusive club which required a meat head membership. The biggest guys were in there, the loudest and more often than not, the most obnoxious too. Usually dubbed the 'Testosterone Zone', you'd only really train here if you fit in or could bare that eye watering stretch floating through the room. However, modern fitness has changed all that. People are beginning to realise, the weights room is where the results are. It doesn't take a genius to realise that the most impressive physiques, whether it be the strongest or the most aesthetic, all lie in the same place. The Weights [...]

Body transformations are high on everyone's list of priorities... However, using scales to measure your progress will leave you frustrated. When that number doesn't change in a few weeks, but you've been doing everything 'right', what do you do? Most people will take drastic measures.

In this article, we outline other things you can do to track your progress so you don't feel like you want to pack it in. What is Body Composition Anyway? What are you made of?

Always Cheat on a Monday!

By |2017-02-14T23:54:09+00:00February 15th, 2017|Categories: Nutrition|Tags: , , |

Cheat meals! Who doesn't love them, right? But what day do you have your cheat meal on? Does it even make a difference? Most experts will tell you to have your cheat meal on the weekend. Have it as your family meal. As a meal out in a restaurant. On a date night. Or something similar. There's definitely merit to that method, but it doesn't work for everyone. You certainly get those that can do it, I've met them. But there are definitely valid reasons as to why it doesn't work; let me explain.     The Cheat Meal Problem Although you like to think of it as a cheat meal, more often than not, it's not. It's a binge, or a cheat afternoon, that [...]

Why The Squat Isn’t Working For You!

By |2017-02-13T11:35:04+00:00February 7th, 2017|Categories: Guest Writer|Tags: , , |

The Squat. Best Booty Builder right? Wrong! The Squat can be a great exercise, but more often then not, the way it's executed makes it one of the worst exercises to build a Booty. Unless you have someone constantly watching the way you squat, or you have enough experience to keep constant tension in the glutes through every rep in the entire set, you'll probably miss out on a lot of premium muscle growth. What you're doing wrong, and how to fix The Squat! Ass to grass! Every single rep! Here's the problem with squatting too low. Most people don't have the flexibility or mobility to keep the glutes working all the way through the squat. There's a point you get to in your low [...]

You’re Not Good Enough

By |2017-01-25T06:51:34+00:00January 25th, 2017|Categories: Psychology|Tags: , , |

You're not good enough... You've told yourself you're not good enough before. We all have; at some point or another. The thing that will separate you from your successes, is whether you believed it or not. Or even if you continue to believe it. Self talk is a powerful thing. There is no voice more powerful then your own and if it's constantly telling you you're not good enough. You're in for a tough ride. You can listen to motivational speaker and read self help books. You can go to seminars and take courses. Learn new skills and train yourself to be a better version of yourself on the outside. But... if your internal dialogue doesn't change, the outward changes will never really take effect. [...]

Workout Nutrition. What’s in Yours?

By |2017-01-19T18:13:33+00:00January 18th, 2017|Categories: Nutrition|Tags: , , , |

I’m no stranger to intra-workout nutrition. It’s something I’ve been doing for many years now. It’s something I’ve done since I started training, but back then it was a simple BCAA or EAA powder. However, those that know me or have seen my clients train, never see then without their big bottle. This my friends, it the secret sauce and I’m about to spill the beans. Firstly, for those that aren’t in the know, intra-workout nutrition is exactly what the name suggests. Something you consume during your workout. But there’s the good and bad kind. While many companies have jumped on the intra-workout nutrition bandwagon, the first company taking this seriously was in Colorado Springs. To be fair to them, they still have the best product available [...]

How far Apart are Your Contractions?

By |2017-01-02T16:11:57+00:00January 11th, 2017|Categories: Training|Tags: , , , |

How far Apart are Your Contractions? No not those contractions… silly! I’m talking about muscle contractions. What? You’re not having contractions? That’s probably why you still look like a twiglet! Muscle contractions are key to building long lasting quality muscle, yet so many trainees that want to build muscle still treat their workout like some sort of Crossfit isolation workout.   Why would you even care about contractions? Just move some heavy ass weight, right? Building good quality muscle is all about how long you can maintain tension in the working muscle before it gives up on you. If you’re just trying to move as much weight as you can, you’ll probably find that the muscle you want to train isn’t the one doing most [...]
