THE FAT BURNER


Hey guys,

Today I’ve got another great treadmill workout to help blast the fat away and increase cardiovascular fitness.

This is a really simple routine that gets the blood flowing and will leave you puffing hard by the end of it.

Before I go over the workout I just want to make sure people warm up before starting, so simply jog/bike or row for about 5-10 mins at a nice easy pace to loosen up the joints.

Bike (5mins)

1. Start by riding slow and easy for 30 secs

2. Blast the next 30 secs as fast as you can

3. Repeat until 5 mins is up

Treadmill (5mins)

1. Start at a steady jogging pace

2. As each minute passes increase your speed by 1.0

3. When 5 mins is up you should be at quite a quick running speed.

REPEAT THE CYCLE 3 TIMES FOR A TOTAL TIME OF 30MINS

If you are just starting exercising I would recommend repeating the cycle twice and slowly building up to 30mins.

With a constant change in speed and intensity throughout this working it will keep your mind focused and really get that heart pumping for the ultimate fat burning workout.

Aim to perform this workout at least 3 times a week

This is my favourite fat burning work out so give it a go and let me know what you think.

As always stay tuned for more great fitness tips 🙂

TRANSFORMS TIPS 5: Magic Drink


Hey guys,

My top today is so simple yet essential for a healthy lifestyle.

Ok listen carefully…

….

..

.

DRINK WATER!!!!

I know?!? It’s easy right?

Well I see so many people who think they drink enough water but I am willing to bet that they’re not, people don’t realise how good water is for your body. Staying well hydrated is one of the most important tips I can give you.

My tip to you is to simple carry a water bottle with you EVERYWHERE, even if your just driving down to the shops grab a bottle and take it with you. Always try and have water available and remember stay hydrated and stay healthy.

Stay tuned for more awesome tips 😀

TRANSFORMS TIPS 4: “Less is more” Why weight? Start today :P


Hey guys,

Todays tip is about muscle growth and what you can do to maximise yours.

When your at the gym do you notice that one person who’s muscles are popping out of their arms, does it make you want to work out for so much longer thinking you will get huge results. Well STOP, that person is probably only at the gym for 45 mins a few times a week, over training muscles is a big problem with many gym users. I see it everyday, people who spend hours at the gym working every muscle all the time, well I’m here to tell you when working out “LESS IS MORE”.

This doesn’t mean going to the gym doing 1 set and leaving, it means simply spending roughly 45-60mins, there is no need to spend hours thrashing your biceps because you will simple over train them and your strength and size will decrease.

I can guarantee, that if you cut your weight routines down to 45 mins you will be seeing results within a week or two. So try it out and let me know how you go.

As always stay tuned for more good tips 🙂

POWER POWDER


Hey guys,

I just want to talk a little about supplements and what I take.

I have had many years experience working with different kinds of supplements, and am constantly trying new products to get a real understanding of what works and why.

I am simply going to list the supplements that I am currently taking. I am taking quite a few different supplements at the moment but when I’m seeing such good results why would I stop 😛

THE LINEUP:

BSN CELLMASS

BSN N.O.XPLODE

BSN NITRIX

100% WHEY – GOLD STANDARD

100% CASEIN – GOLD STANDARD

I know this is quite a few supplements to be taking but I am playing around with a few different types pre and post-workout shakes just to see what works best.

Now obviously not everyone needs to take these supplements, my goals will vary to yours and I am taking what I need in order to reach my potential.

Once I finish taking this set of supplements I will write up a detailed review of how I found each product in performance, taste and price.

I hope to help you guys understand the world of supplements because there are so many products out there it can be very hard to know what is best for you and your goals.

Feel free to ask me any questions you may have on supplements

As always stay tuned for more supplement information 🙂

TRANSFORMS TIPS 2. Good Form Good Workout


Hey guys,

This tip is all about form while working out.

When I say form I am talking about how you perform a repetition in an exercise.

For example, If you a performing a bicep curl your goal is to have a slow controlled movement and really focuses on using the bicep. You DO NOT want to be swinging your body and leaning back or to the side in order to lift the weight.

If you have bad form while lifting a weight there is a simple solution to help you lift with good form…LOWER THE WEIGHT…don’t go for glory when working out and pick up an extremely heavy weight because you saw the guy before you using it.

If you have bad form while lifting a weight you will get bad results. Don’t be that person at the gym you see picking up a huge amount of weight and using there entire body to swing and lift it up.

Bad form leads to injuries which stops you working out all together. So guys please lift with good form, and if your unsure if you have good form while lifting simply go ask one of the gym instructors or someone around you. People at the gym are very friendly and always happy to help.

If you have a question for me about form while working out don’t hesitate to ask.

Stay tuned for more helpful tips 🙂
