One of the great things about doing what I do is that you get exposed to a lot of great information…ahead of time. And the one thing that studying 3 science type degrees showed me is that you need to keep an open mind when trying to understand various things in this world. Another point I would like to preface this blog entry today with, is that I am always suspicious where there is a lot of money being made from the heavy promotion of a product by the guys in the white jacket.

Case in point this issue about saturated fat, heart disease and cholesterol medication. The boys and girls (precision nutrition, 180 nutrition, Mercola) I have been reading for sometime now have said, ‘hey things may not be what they seem when it comes to “prevailing” thought on these matters’. So it was with great interest that I saw the documentary on Catalyst. You should check this out if you are on a statin medication in particular and if you have any interest in what is ‘healthy’ when it comes to foods like margarine and butter. As usual it looks like keeping it simple is a much better health strategy but you will have to watch this to know what I am talking about.

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?
