You gotta admit it...
You have reached over the age of 36 (some of you) and the realisation has set in, that you need to look after yourself.
The one to many nights at the bar, the takeaways every Friday and the hangover cure of eating crap on the sunday has taken its toll.
After 3 decades (just over) of making poor choices and having the breaking strain of a soggy kit kat, we have all become aware of our mortality and know that the hangovers are real....recovery is longer and the stinky farts are not funny any more... (yes they are..!)
Like me (in my 20's) i use to say, you only live once, so you gotta go out in style and live a life of sin, beer and fags
But like me, you have probably realised that you don't only live once and that your health is important, not just for you, but for your kids.
So here are a few tips that my help you stay out of the pub and on your way to losing the chunky bits.
P.S - if you want any help on what could be best for you and your lifestyle, just send us a quick message and ill be in touch.
So the humble banana has been around for a long time...
But, it can often be seen as the enemy, well it can if you are on slimming world...
I over heard a conversation between a husband and wife all about the banana and how it is 4 syns.
But only if you mash it up..?
What the actual F**K!
Only if you mash it up, but it's OK if you don't mash it up.
Here is the problem...
How the hell are you suppose to eat the banana without mashing it up..?
I'm sure there are probably a few sex shows around that employs a lady called tricky vicky that can keep the syns at bay by swallowing the banana whole like she sucks a golf ball through a hose pipe.
But seriously this is BS...
The fact that it is called a SYN (SIN) rings alarm bells to me and makes my blood boil.
How can you call one of natures fruit (mashed up) a sin?
>>This is why we have so many people with problems, with regards eating good wholesome food.
>>This is why so many people bounce back from being slim to over weight.
>>This one of the many reasons why the obesity epidemic is at an all time high.
Food should not be called syns..!
P.S - Don't get sucked into ruining your life by succumbing to the BS of the syns diet...It's not healthy.
P.P.S - There is no evidence that anyone from the slimming world diet has kept the weight of for more than 5 years...why..?...
...there is no education about real food...if you continue to eat mugshots and whole bananas you are always gonna bounce back...
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!
You want to LOSE FAT, get stronger, faster, and build muscle. So you keep training harder and harder.
The problem is that all these adaptations happen away from the gym.
When you train, you create a demand for your body to adapt to a stimulus, bringing about
improvements to make that exercise easier next time. Sure, these adaptations wouldn’t happen
without the exercise in the first place. But it is the recovery process that determines the speed and
magnitude of the adaptations.
What this means...
You need to train hard to create greater potential for adaptations to occur, but recover harder in
order to give your body the best chance to make the necessary changes.
So how do we do that...
Make sure your nutrition is supporting the process – Protein, vegetables, fats AND carbs.
Give your body enough time to recover between sessions.
Get enough sleep. 7+ Hours.
Periodise your training appropriately, and train optimally not maximally.
Need or want to know more? Take a look at our 30 Day Experience, its a game changer.

P.S - Athletes can train harder and more frequently than us general folk, for no reason other than the fact
they recover a lot harder.
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..!
