I won an Australian junior tennis title event.

I did a biathlon and swam across Sydney Harbour

I got my bronze medallion

I was captain of my football team

I represented NSW in tennis

I ran the city to surf in 54 mins…..

Big deal! All these things have one thing in common. They are in firmly in the past. I don’t know how many times I have heard blokes (in particular) talk about stuff they once did. Who cares? What matters is what is happening now! This blog is aimed at 40+ something blokes. It is an age group and gender and I can relate to. Just lately we have had some guys of this vintage do really well. The following guys have lost around 10cm off the waist this year, Andrew, Gareth, Gary, Rogerio, Jorge. Others have lost a little less but are DOING the job right now. This is what counts. Forget about how much of a legend you might have been in the past. That ship has sailed my friend.

Now is your reality.

Later this year I will be assembling a group of motivated blokes who want to make 2012 the year that they stop the rot and reclaim the glory days. This will be a 12 month program and only for guys who are just super FED UP with being FAT, FORTY-ISH and FREAKIN’ living in the past.  I will be accepting 10 blokes only and only those who I think have the stomach for this. No pun intended. But yep you will be looking to lose between 10 and 30 kg, 10 and 20cm off the waist, improving your blood pressure, cholesterol, triglycerides, blood sugar and liver function next year and become the bloke you see in your mind when you currently tell the story about how good you used to be.

I saw a great T shirt the other day. Be as good as you think you were! We are going to have our own. “Glory days… longer a thing of the past!”

You will need crystal clear goals, a hunger to eat and drink right and a desire to be strong, fit and useful in a blokey way again by years end 2012 – You will be set up for a healthy ride in to your later years so you can perform well in what ever it is you do and enjoy doing and  be the inspirational father and partner you know you can  be.

Fitness Tips

Wouldn’t it be nice?

The keys to success with strength training, once you respect the principle of never hurting yourself, can be found in two major guiding principles. Progressive overload and consistency. You need to gradually but surely increase the challenge or your body will have nothing to adapt to and obviously if you aren’t consistent, then the results won’t be there either. Unfortunate factoid: You can’t store either fitness or strength. Hence the advice above. Don’t stop, once you start.

Strength and conditioning

Look Good Naked?

We talk a lot about functional strength, useful fitness, diabetes defeating cardio training, osteoporosis crushing (actually the opposite of that!) strength training here at ‘Best Practice Personal Training’.

But let’s not forget that even though we know its more about how you feel, there is an element, even if it is a little hidden, that responds to this kind of archetypal fitness industry headline, right?
