The last time i looked, everyone is still looking for
a quick fix, an easy way out, something that is
gonna make the journey of losing weight easy..
In our Book we have our philosophy
of how we create our programmes
(Free - i can email it if you want it)
There are so many quick fixes on the market
that surely one will work...won't it..?
Unfortunately, there isn't one that does....#truth
If there was, we (yes all coaches) would be
taking this fix for some awesome gains...
But there isn't...
The thing is the body is an awesome machine
that boggles the mind....
And You will need to apply a bit of science to what
you do for your result..
So what you gonna do...??
Hire a scientist..?
If you are looking for a result, you will need to
hunt down a coach or a personal trainer and
ask them to help..
If they try to offer you some secret pill
or magic shake.... go get someone else.
So what do you need to look for in order for you
to get a result that is inline with your goals..?
Look for a coach with a results based fitness philosophy
One that is going to base your result on your fitness
If you get fitter, in turn you will get leaner and stronger
and the 6 pack will be there for the summer
To that end the coach should do the following:
1. Track your progress (Resting HR, Anaerobic testing, gody fat, strength increases etc
2. Write you a programme to follow (don't just make it up as they go along!)
3. Be contactable in your time of need
Hope this all makes sense and if you have any questions just
give me a shout and ill do my best to answer
Or if you want, you can see how we do it on our 21 Kickstart course:
Many old school running coaches claim that running is the
be all and end all when it comes to fitness and weight training
has no place …. Why?
In their eyes, to be a better runner you need to improve your running
economy and the way to do this is to improve your
V02 Max (Oxygen uptake capacity)… Really??
What happens if your Vo2 max is high and you still don’t perform??
What if the amount of increased miles you have been prescribed
doesn’t increase your Vo2 max?
(Many top end runners have a similar Vo2 max, however
they don’t cross the line at the same time!!)
You may be thinking what do I need to do?
You need to improve your running economy … How?
A quick explanation of running ….
Running is essentially hip flexion, stance phase and forced hip extension.
During stance phase there is an increased amount of force
passing through the lower limbs (3-4 x bodyweight) with a
requirement to brace the spine and core region by at least 40-50%
the whole time… Hard work…
To improve running economy the body needs to be able to
withstand the force in the lower limbs,
decrease the ground contact of the feet and
increase the musculature activity around
bracing the core throughout the run ……
(the core is everything attached to the pelvis, not just the abs!)
Triple extension exercises conducted with resistance will help
to decrease the ground contact, as the feet will have less time
on the floor, however, they will push out the same force.
