This brings us to an intriguing question: Are some people born with a faster metabolism? And if so, what role does genetics play? What Is Metabolism, and How Does It Work?

Whilst seemingly trivial statistics, they go a long way to highlighting women’s ability to focus their attention on the task at hand, particularly in a stereo typically male-focused arena such as training and the gym, smashing common gender stereotypes. I "I love the fact that in the sessions [Holly]

I learned a long time ago that "The only way to lose is to quit".   As long as you continue to make the effort and test and measure your results, you have not lost and your still in the game. Everyone experiences setbacks yep even me . However, those who achieve the most experience the most setbacks because they persist as long as it takes to reach each end goal i

What is the difference between desperation and determination? The difference comes from having a positive, meaningful direction. The energy of desperation is wasted on self-pity and negativity. That can lead to destructive behavior, which only makes the sense of desperation worse. Yet by choosing a positive orientation, you can always transform the self-defeating energy of your desperation into solid, potent determination. By applying that energy toward a positive purpose, you can make

Without a deadline you can exhaust yourself and still not arrive at any meaningful accomplishment.  A deadline compels you to prioritise and to expend your best efforts in the most meaningful direction. With a deadline, you are constantly reminded of how valuable and precious your time is. You're able to see resources and opportunities that would otherwise remain hidden. A deadline encourages you to do the best you can with what you

Interval training is alternating bursts of intense activity with intervals of lighter activity. For example, if you walk for exercise and you’re in fairly good shape, you might incorporate 30  seconds of jogging with 1-3 minutes of walking, and continually repeat. If you haven’t worked up to jogging yet, you might alternate a moderate walking pace with 30-60 seconds of faster power-walking. Whether you're a beginner, intermediate, or advanced, interval training

In simple terms, muscle can only contract in a few ways. It can do the obvious and contract to shorten the distance between joints, such as when doing a bicep curl. This is called aconcentric contraction, where the muscle tenses while shortening.One of the main benefits of isometric training is that the body is able to activate nearly all the available motor units - something that is usually very difficult to

This is a technique in which you use your thoughts and imagination to bring you closer to achieving your goals and creating what you want in life.When we visualise we act,and our subconscious mind interprets imagery as equivalent to a real life action,put simply,as if it already happened,and this helps our intention move from imagination to reality.Scientifically this is termed as experience based  neuro plasticity,which confirms that stimuli as a

These are the 3 guidelines to follow after a workout: 1. As with every meal, you should include a lean, complete protein source, such as grilled chicken breast, cottage cheese, or protein powder. These are not only high-quality protein sources, they are also “quick-digesting proteins”, which is optimal after a workout (so the proteins' amino acids reach your muscles as quickly as possible). Hannah understands the importance of eating for her body type and results

MY TOP 5 TIPS TO BE A SUCCESSFUL MAINTAINER 1. Increase your total daily activity level, including formal exercise as well as sports, physical work or recreational activity.

Is there something that's distracting you and keeping you from staying focused?Perhaps your pissed off with life(we all been there) There will always be some distraction or another, story from stopping you getting what you truly deserve in life  but you never have to give in to those distractions.

As a competitive amateur Bodybuilder I've learnt that Sometimes it can be truly helpful and enlightening to wander without a clear destination and to explore new territory. Yet if that's all you ever do, all that enlightenment will never be put to use. When you give yourself a clear, specific goal, your actions take on the power of purpose and very quickly you move from maintenance to progression. Then you become more

If people don't understand the “calories in” versus “calories out” equation, they're not going to lose fat and will mistakenly think that there's a cause and effect relationship between specific foods and gaining fat. Many people think eating pizza or a burger or chocolate equals getting fat. It doesn't. It's not a cause and effect relationship where "junk food" automatically turns into fat. Eating too many calories equals gaining fat and

If you've caused metabolic damage as a result of following starvation diets or losing weight too rapidly in the past, it can be extremely difficult to achieve any further fat loss at all. The good news is, metabolic damage can be repaired. All it takes is the right combination of metabolism stimulating exercise and metabolism stimulating nutrition (NOT just a diet), all done consistently over time. The big irony is that

Success is a consistent pattern more than it is an isolated event. It is the way you live rather than some object or experience you acquire.

Here are four ways to overcome food guilt and shame to cultivate a better relationship with food once and for all: Because food is a huge part of our social lives, it’s not realistic to skip happy hours, birthdays, weddings and almost every event. If you catch yourself feeling guilt or shame,  first come up with a compassionate response: “It’s OK that I ate in front of the TV after dinner.” Then reaffirm

Emotional eating is such an unconscious act, they often don't even realise they're doing it. For many of us, that mindless munching can sabotage even the best-laid healthy-eating plan. While it isn't realistic to think you can banish every single emotional eating episode, it is possible to cut back on this behavior. But you first need to understand WHY your emotions are making you indulge in the first place. I’m hopeful these 4

We tell our client's that you can eat all the right foods at the right times, but if you’re eating too much, it’s going to be tough to lose fat. So, I want you to work on the following strategy to ensure that you have the right portions at each meal just like our client.   Dish each of your meals up using the “Fist/Palm/Thumb Rule” (see explanation below) and then do

Push-ups: Is the one body weight chest exercise to rule them all. I like to cranks quick and fast reps at least 60 reps in around a minute in total in as few sets as possible. Do as many as you can and rest briefly, if needed, and then continue riding the gain train.  Tip: Note that push-ups on kettle bells really burn the muscle out, "This will give you that blood flow

Weight Loss Fitness Myth #1 Dieting eliminates fat  The fact is your body can't discriminate between intentional calorie deprivation (as in a diet)and starvation.When you dramatically reduce your caloric intake,your body shifts into a protective mode by slowing your metabolism down and holding onto fat(an important energy source)and burning muscle instead.In the beginning of a diet yes you will lose weight by dramatically cutting calories.
