  • People definitely tend to focus a little too much on the micro of health, fitness or body recomp as opposed to the macro.

It’s far more important to ensure you’re hitting the ‘big rocks’ then worry about all the little things - get down your energy balance, consuming adequate protein, resistance training, hitting a full micronutrient and mineral intake, you hydration, your sleep etc.

Once you’ve those nailed, then you can start to worry about these tiny things that make very small differences in your health or progress in the gym.

As with everything, get the fundamentals down first.

  • 🔥Hot Tip Of The Week!🔥
Does your job involve a lot of sitting at your desk? 
Here’s a couple of stretches you can do around the work place to help relieve stress on your back and neck and help to correct your posture.
1. Find a door way 🚪 place your arms either side of the door frame bent at a 90° angle. Step forward with one foot and stand tall and puff out your chest.  This open ups your chest and will help prevent hunching.
2. While sitting at your desk gently pull your head to one side with the opposite arm and hold for 10-15 seconds. Keep your posture nice and straight, this will release tension in your neck and traps. 
In addition to this make sure you work on your core strength. This will also help with your posture while you’re sitting at your desk!

  • The deadlift is one of those exercises that gets a bit of a bad rap from time to time, have you ever heard someone say deadlifting is bad for your back?

The “FACT” is deadlifting wrong can be bad for your back but when you do it right it is one of the most functional and productive lifts in the gym.

Remember the ques
▪️Bar
▪️Foot
▪️Hands
▪️Chest
▪️Elbows
▪️Pull
If you want one on one instruction on the deadlift or any other lift have a chat to our ACM & senior trainer Kane.

  • 🔥6 Week Challenge Transformation🔥

Chicane took part in our last 6 week challenge. 
His goal was to improve his strength & muscle tone.
At the start of the challenge he could do 10 pull ups, (which we think is already pretty impressive) & by the end of the 6 weeks he could do 25!! 💪 Amazing work! 💪
He enjoyed it so much that he is coming back for more & doing our next 6 week challenge which starts Feb 10th.
Do you want to join him? Message or come & see us in club for more details.
Whatever your goal is, our 6 week challenge is for you!

  • Hydration.. I know, sexy topic.

But, absolutely something that plays a pretty big part in your health, how you feel and potentially your performance.

Being dehydrated comes with a host of side effects (and it is much easier to become dehydrated than you probably think, if you’re thirsty, you’re probably already dehydrated). A feeling of lethargy, tiredness, headaches, light headed ness, dizziness, drop in cognitive function, dry mouth, lips and eyes are all symptoms of dehydration.

Fortunately, water isn’t the only way to hydrate, keep in mind your food can often contain a significant amount of water and have a net hydration effect.

Also, performance can be impaired as a result of being dehydrated (as little as 2%) now while ensuring being hydrated throughout exercise probably isn’t super important, making sure you’re hydrated before exercise is far more important to ensure optimal performance.

The most practical way of measuring whether you’re hydrated or not is through your urine and how it stacks up against the chart in my post. You want to aim to stay between 1-3 throughout the day. Obviously if you consume a lot of beetroot or have a multivitamin this can impact it.

Practical guidelines are pretty simple
- carry a water bottle with you at all times
- if you don’t like water, then opt for palatable drinks; Powerade zero, BCAAs mixes, milk
- maintain clear urine colour
- start exercise well hydrated, drink to thirst during exercise
- don’t forget about water content in foods (salads, vegetables, fruit, stews, soups etc) 
This obviously simplifies hydration as a topic, but provides a decent overview and guidelines to implement.

  • Rest periods.. Pretty simple aspect of training, but often not done correctly.

Fortunately, the answer is pretty simple.

If the goal is hypertrophy (building muscle) you should be resting for at least a minute or so - on compound movements this could be as long as 2-3 minutes.

If the goal is strength, then you could be as high as 10 minutes depending on how hard your sets are.

As you become more advanced, you’ll be able to go off how you feel - when you feel ready, you jump back in.

If you’re resting for less than a minute between sets, chances are you’re not giving yourself enough time to recover properly which will result in less intensity/volume in your sets.

Supersets are fantastic - but they should only really be used if you’re short on time (and should be performed with 2 completely unrelated body parts) or an intensity technique at the end of a workout, same applies for drop sets.

If you’ve got a gym bro yelling in your face to keep smashing supersets or resting is for losers - probably give them a slap.

  • Balance... bit of a buzz word these days thrown around in the fitness/health industry.

Don’t get me wrong - I love it, and I do think it’s important.

But. 
People don’t really understand what it is, or how they should implement it.

You’ll often see it thrown around after a big binge on KFC or pizza with a ‘all about #balance huns’ for a superficial and short lived justification of their actions more than likely followed by periods of guilt.

True balance is understanding how food works and how your body responds (real science, not the psuedoscience bullshit you see thrown around). One meal doesn’t make a bad diet, in fact, if you know the above you can incorporate whatever you like and still be consistent with what you want to achieve.

Sometimes I’ll eat meringues for my pre workout meal, and sometimes it will be more balanced (in regards to macronutrient composition). Ultimately, it really doesn’t matter that much, but I never feel any guilt and I still stay on track with my goals.

Want to learn to take more control over your food, diet structure and really make some progress (both physically and mentally) get in touch.

Yeah.. photo really isn’t even remotely related to the caption 🤷🏽‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️

  • 🔥This Weeks Hot Tip!🔥
Are you getting the most out of the leg press? Try these variations to emphasize different areas of your legs.
1. Basic Stance
The standard way most people will do the leg press is with feet parallel in the middle of the platform, hip-width apart. You can activate the quads more by pushing with the balls of the feet or engage the glutes more by pushing through the heels.
2. High & Wide Foot Placement
If you want to emphasize your glutes and hamstrings when leg pressing, use a high & wide foot position. Placing your feet higher & wider increases the degree of hip extension and flexion while reducing the range of motion around the knees. This means you'll feel an increased stretch in the hammies and glutes. 
3. Low & Narrow Foot Placement
A lower & narrow foot placement reduces the degree of hip extension and flexion while increasing the range of motion around the knees. That means you get more quad activation and less involvement from the glutes and hammies.
