Who does it...?
How many of you eat crap and say, I'm just having a cheat meal..?
or I'm having a treat and i deserve this chocolate cake because i worked out..?
Me, that's who...!
I'm not gonna let you read this and think that I never have a treat or succumb to eating crap...but, I've figured out why i crave the crap..
This is for you guys/girls, so you get an insight into what is going on with the body and why you crave, sugary, crap foods...
The problem, usually stems from under eating
You think to yourself, I'm being good, I've eaten veg/salads and meat for every meal
I've cut out the carbs, so i'm gonna lose weight
Here is the problem...
You have cut out one of your major food groups - carbs
Carbs are sugar and they fuel the body, so if you eliminate carbs from your diet, your body will crave sugar (carbs)
So the first thing you will do, is head to the biscuit tin or that cheeky little cake you have with the costa coffee.
You blame the kids or the missus, for eating the sugary cake, because they had one too...
If you eat the right amount of good quality carbs (sugars) in your diet, at the right times (usually post workout)
You will succeed in your fat loss journey..
if you don't you will eat too much and get fat...simples..
Don't let the cravings get in your way - Unless your pregnant.. ;-)
So the 30 Day Experience is running out of space, do you want in..?

P.S. Here is that link again, 3 spaces left for this month ...https://go.scvitalfitness.co.uk/30-day-experience
Ok - I talk a LOT about he problems you could face in the gym right?
It’s what I’m known for, and the reason we are sought after for fat loss and strength gain programs and why men over 35 trust us to train and educate them about fitness.
And everyone always asks me, after they’ve had some personal training or worked our on their own…
“Sean… what is the best exercises for (fill in the blank ---------------?”
Ahh yes… the dreaded working out on your own…
As you’ll soon see it’s the #1 reason people fail and flop pathetically … even when everything else is done right…
And good personal training or working out?
Well, whether you pay an arm and a leg to a gym or trainer (who is clueless)… or you invest years into learning how to do it yourself either way it’ll cost you a freakin’ fortune!
Which is why I realised the general gym goer over 35, needed a different option...
Something that could take proven gym workouts and make it easy for you to get awesome FAT loss results and not be intimidated by going to the gym weights area with all the other stringer vest wearing Bro's...
Yup. Whether you need:
Our Personal Training facility “SC Vital Fitness” can do ALL that (and a whole lot more)…
And I’ll show you exactly how you can make it work on the 30 Day Experience
P.S. The 30 Day Experience doesn’t do EVERYTHING for you… you still have to work hard, but it will give you the tools to make your fitness journey an awesome one!
What does a workout to burn the chunky bits, like the guys/girls on our 30 day Experience..look like..?
Your (our) workout should be designed along a few variables:
The variables of getting strong, increasing the size of your muscles AND burning chunky bits.
YOUR (our) goal is for you to reach your maximum potential (Lose fat or getting stronger), in the most efficient manner with regards your lifestyle and training age.
There have been many trials that have taken place with regards volume and intensity (percentage of weight used, how many sets, time under tension and rest periods) to see what can be utilised from the most experienced lifter to the complete novice in how they are going to get strong or lose the chunky bits..(Who doesn't hate chunky bits!)
A recent study took some healthy males and allocated them either slow or normal bar speeds on a compound exercise (Back Squat, press, deadlift etc)
They kept the weight under tension for 6 secs 3 down and 3 up, with no pause at the bottom.
The researchers found that after an 8 week training programme the low speed of the squat movement displayed an increase in muscle size by an average of 70% and an increase in strength by 10%. However, even though there was an increase in size and strength, there was no increase in power.
WHAT DOES THIS TELL US…??
This tells us that if you are looking to gain strength it may be a good idea to slow the reps down and not bounce out of every rep.
On the other hand if you are looking to increase power, you need to speed the reps up.
Or (THE BIGGEST TOP TIP!) If you are looking to burn the chunky bits (FAT), get more time under tension....In other words get uncomfortable and take a look at our 30 day experience, its pretty epic..!
P.S - Not every Fat loss Journey is the same, but if you need help we can make sure it will be an awesome one..!
What a film that was...
The plot was based around a guy that rescued 75 people from being slaughtered by the Japanese after the yanks retreated..
The thing is the Commanding Officer thought that everyone had died and there was no way they could take the position back.
“Just forget about them” he said..
It was heart breaking to watch....
The thing is, because this soldier didn’t forget his purpose in life and his comrades, they were able to storm the mountain and take it back from the Japanese…
I am more than positive if he had not bothered to rescue his mates, they would have lost everyone and morale would have hit an all-time low.
But he didn’t forget…..did he..?
So then, what would happen if you forgot your purpose in life and started forgetting things..?
If you don't write things down...
I'm not saying you might not resuce 75 mates and you will die, I’m saying that you won't make progress...
Write things down, record the weights you lift or don't lift..This is so you can see how much progression or your lack of progression..
Record what you eat for 3 days…This will show you why you have wobbly bits, be honest and record everything.
Use a training diary…So you can write how the session went, good or bad.
If you stick to these rules and write down what you have done or not done, your progress will be massive, just like the clients here at SC Vital Fitness Personal Training....
