There are literally more diets, diet books and weight loss guides in the world than you could possibly count.  Some of them are naff, but for the most part they all tend to work in the sense that if you follow the overall advice you’ll lose weight.  However, how much of that weight loss is […]

Christmas Countdown and Weight Gain

Ok, you can shoot me for mentioning the “C” word in November. Heck, I’ll shoot myself. But I’m gonna talk about it anyway. My birthday falls exactly 6 weeks before Christmas Eve, so now that’s been, I am accepting of the festive build-up and the Christmas Countdown. My friend and I have been discussing how […]

The Dice Workout

This week’s workout is slightly different. Instead of dictating a workout for you I offer you an opportunity to create a “dice workout”. We roll the dice for your workout and therefore mix up your training. Keeping a little mystery in your sessions will help keep you motivated, avoid that stale feeling, but still give […]

What Does 100g Look Like?

Everyone seems to be using apps to record every morsel of food these days! It’s also definitely become more popular to pay more attention to the nutritional information displayed on a packet. None of these are bad things of course….unless it’s not recorded correctly that is. Nutritional information is predominantly displayed as per 100g – […]

Have you ever had one of those days where you just fancy an AMRAP? No? Just me then! An AMRAP is “As Many Rounds As Possible”, and is usually performed for time. It’s a chance to really push yourself, and the best thing is that it’s repeatable – so you can do it again another […]

Are BBQs Bad For You?

I have a lot of clients coming to me saying that they didn’t eat well over the weekend. They “confess” that they went to a BBQ and had a good time. A lot of my dietary advice is to “base meals around lean protein and eat plenty of vegetables”; the BBQ is a great way […]

High Intensity Abs Workout

The unusually long UK heatwave sees no signs of abating yet  (I’m not complaining). But this does mean restless nights leave people tired. There is an overall sense of lethargy and it can be just too hot to train. Let’s not use the weather as excuse not to get a workout done (too typically British). […]
