A repost of yesterday's story.♻️
-
The main obstacle to healthy eating that i hear all too often is 'time limitation'.. 🕞
-
I dont buy that, i buy this. A cajun chicken breast ready marinated and leave it in the oven for 30 mins.
The tortilla is microwaved for 10 seconds. And the veg and greek yogurt are added cold.👍
-
Simple, quick and delicious. 💁🏻‍♀️

Hit a solid upper body session yesterday whilst feeling slightly under the weather.😥
-
At the time i wanted to skip training but i persevered and got it done. 💪
-
Now I'm properly ill. 👍🏼
-
Damned if you do, damned if you don't. 😒
-
What's your experience/advice? Usually I would not train when illness is setting in, but i find that the quicker I get back to the gym when the bug is on it's way out, the quicker i recover. 🐝

Do it! The first thing you should put in your body when you wake up in the morning is a minimum 200ml of water.💦

Weight training resistance exercises can be classified either as COMPOUND 🏋🏻‍♂️, which are exercises that involve more than one muscle group through multiple joint moments (see above), or ISOLATION exercises, which are exercises that isolate a muscle group (e.g. bicep curls). 💪
-
A major benefit of using COMPOUND lifts is the systemic stress they exert throughout the target muscles and neighboring areas (in the case of squats and deadlifts, the whole body is forced to work systemically, thus producing a system-wide, or total-body, effect). 🕺
-
In short • COMPOUND EXERCISES = more effective metabolism stimulation, muscle increase and fat loss 👍🏼

NUTRITION 🍏 TRAINING 🏋🏻‍♂️ LIFESTYLE 🙂
-
Today I found motivation from an old Rage Against the Machine album (The Battle of LA) and wow did it get me pumped for training! It was the inspiration for this post and the upcoming 'gym tunes playlists' that i'm currently compiling for you. Stay tuned! Happy New Year!

Could this be the perfect post workout meal???
🤔
If you've been resistance training then probably, yes.
🤔
We have baked salmon. A great source of protein which will get to work rebuilding your muscles and help reduce post workout muscle inflammation.
🤔
Before protein synthesis can take place, you need to replenish energy stores, which have fallen low from all that exercise. This is where a high glycemic, simple carbohydrate like white rice is important.
🤔
As for the veggies, they're not as essential to consume directly post workout BUT make sure you are getting plenty in your diet generally, for all the vitamins and minerals you need to keep your body and organs functioning properly and ultimately - staying healthy.

This is a fact that I find myself constantly saying to people, especially new clients, and ensuring them to trust the process. 🙏
-
Building muscle mass could well make the scales go up initially, but having that extra muscle will fire up your metabolism, simultaneously burning fat. 💣

For an accurate body fat measurement, get down to Boots or come see me at UCS Active and we can check your body composition using In-Body technology. 💻

Warm up circuit this morning with my favourite girl 💘
-
•Slider lunges
•Slider side lunges
•Squat & press
•Bent over rows
•Pushups
-
Try for high reps with light weight resistance during the warm-up, so
15-20 reps each exercise.
-
Repeat 4 times and ensure you switch legs for the first 2 slider exercises to balance out the body.

High-intensity resistance training has the benefit of reducing multiple risk factors for osteoporosis, including improved strength, balance, bone density and increased muscle mass. 🏋️‍♂️💀

I've selected the 'Rise' filter here for pathetic fallacy, and not because of its definition enhancing capabilities ☝ #stormOphelia 🌬
--
On a serious note im relatively content with current condition, considering how packed out my schedule has been of late. I've managed to eat well 60% of the time and keep my workouts short and intense 💥
-- Also, bluetooth headphones are the best thing since sliced bread! 💚

Your body releases higher amounts of endorphins when you perform sustained exercise. Whether you walk, run, lift or play sports, this is one of the reasons exercise can help you overcome stress. The endorphin boost from a good workout will help you feel better ☺
