Despite popular belief, breakfast is NOT the most important meal of the day. 🤯
.
One of my new clients told me that her previous trainer had told her she must eat breakfast to “kickstart her metabolism” in the morning. Only issue was, she hated eating breakfast.
.
You don’t HAVE TO eat breakfast to lose body fat if you don’t want to. I know plenty of people who don’t eat until later in the day and do just fine. It 100% depends on your personal preference and what is most likely going to keep you adhering to your calorie deficit.
.
The only time I would recommend it, is if my client was binging later in the day so breakfast may help prevent mindless eating or overeating when really hungry.
.
And a personal tip (that not every trainer will agree with) is that if you train in the morning, eat something before you go. Could just be a banana, it doesn’t matter. I’ve personally found that I, and my clients, train better if they eat before a morning session.

As always, any questions just let me know! Have a great Sunday folks!

THE KING OF COMPOUND EXERCISES ☝💡
.
If I had to pick only one exercise to do for the rest of my life, it would be the conventional deadlift. Not only does it engage most of the big muscles, it also focusses on the posterior chain which is often underdeveloped nowadays - with many people working in office jobs, spending a lot of time seated and on their phones and computers. 🏋💯
.
The conventional deadlift is quite advanced and complex - here are the major cues to perform it safely and effectively:
.
1. Place your feet hip-width apart in the centre of the barbell with the bar above your midfoot.
.
2. Grab the barbell outside your ankles, so your knees are pushing out against your arms. Bend your knees, so your shins are touching the barbell. Your hips should drop down somewhere between your shoulders and your knees. Remember: this is a deadlift, not a squat.
.
3. Straighten your back, engage your lats, brace your core and load up your hamstrings to set yourself up for lifting the load off the ground. This is very important to avoid rounding off your lower back during the lift.
.
4. Push yourself away from the ground. The movement should be knee-dominant until the barbell passes your knees and then turn into a hip hinge. The barbell should be traveling along your legs throughout the whole movement. Keep your neck neutral in line with your back.
.
5. Lock out at the top by squeezing your glutes. Do not overextend your back. You should feel the exercise in your glutes and hamstring more than you feel it in your lower back.
.
6. Reverse step number four to safely bring the weights back to the ground. Make sure your core is braced throughout the whole lift and you don't lose form on the way down.
.
Tip: If you feel lower back pain, this might be because you round off or overarch your back or you are too hip-dominant throughout the whole movement.

WORKOUT: Another fast-paced fun one! I was worried it would feel a bit choppy but this workout actually moves so smoothly! 😁
The handstand walks and pushups got hard for me towards the end (we did clapping pushups), while the rest of it for me was more cardio/maintenance-type work. I'd consider switching the HS walks and/or pushups to something(s) a little less taxing and then push the workout out to 15-20 mins! 🤸‍♀️
Put your good vibe jams on and cruise! 🎶

So yesterday was epic ☝🏼
SWIPE LEFT <<<<<<<<<

Jumping in the deep end with some improvisational contemporary dance. Despite being a movement teacher, dancing has never felt comfortable for me. This has been an issue on a couple of recent courses, including the European movement meeting with Ido Portal, and the Fighting Monkey week intensive course.
.
Digging to the cause of this barrier I had to dancing I found some childhood traumas associated with dancing...so I thought F@&k it. I’m going dancing...so I took myself off to a nightclub, and whilst completely sober danced until dawn. It was very cathartic!!
.
I think the most important thing we can do is expose ourselves to the shit we don’t want to do, because that’s where the greatest lessons are.
.
Dancing also teaches a range of different movement principles such as coordination, timing and rhythm which carry over into a range of other different sports. For example, some of the most technically brilliant boxers were also dancers; Sugar Ray Robinson, Muhammad Ali, and Vasyl Lomachenko. Their understanding of timing and rhythm is what sets them apart in the ring.

I’ve been working hard the last few months with plenty of Glute focus as my upper body training has been limited with a shoulder injury meaning I can’t do much in the way of pushing and pressing movements. So back, core and booty it is!
.
Chin ups, many deadlift variations, squats, lunges, hip thrusters and Glute bridges have been my best friend and ensuring I do some banded activation work before sessions to really get my glutes firing.
.
I’m happy to see some progress as having a booty definitely didn’t come naturally for me. The best part about booties is, if you don’t have one, you can grow one! With the right muscle contraction, focusing on tempo and slow negatives (Eccentric/muscle lengthening phase), I have seen growth. It doesn’t happen overnight, it takes years of training with these techniques to see results. I’m definitely not at my goal just yet but always a work in progress and enjoying the journey in the process 🍑💪🏼 #kardashianbootycomeatme

🍑 Brasil or France.. 🍑
Which would you choose?🤔🍑🏐
(Tag a booty lover)😂don’t be selfish!

What do think about this?

What are your comments?

With a history of chronic lower back pain and a sedentary job, Damo began training with us with very little weight training experience. -

Every session we put emphasis on prehab, rehab exercises, making slow yet consistent progress. -

The first time Damo did a trap-bar deadlift with us about 6 months ago, he tweaked his back attempting 70kg. After lots of consistent work in the gym, we programmed 140kg for 3 reps at our strength testing day. -

To everyone's surprise (including his own) he finished off with a massive 3 reps at 150kg. Clean, no form breakdown and most importantly, no pain. -

We cannot be prouder of Damo and we're looking forward to continuing his journey to health.

The BURPEE! We all love it aka we hate them! The positions of the burpee always include a Squat, Plank, Squat! You can throw a push Up in or even a jump at the end. When we Squat we keep our heels DOWN! This is hard to do with a lack of hip mobility. When we plank back, brace the core, it should be tight. If look closely my abs are flexed when I jump back into the plank. Then right back to the squat jumping my heels back to my hands. Try a few this way and feel the difference. Proper execution is how to get the most of your workout! “ Work Smarter, Not Harder” #personaltrainer #trainingtips #fitnessmotivation #satxtrainer #goldsgym #fitness #challageyourself #onamission #burpees
