Monthly Food Tip
One of the realities of dieting is that if you cut out to many calories, your metabolism slows down to conserve energy resulting in a reduction in fat burning!
Metabolism is the term used for all chemical reactions involved within our bodies.
Boost your metabolism to increase fat burning!
- Nutritional Breakfast to wake up your metabolism (Why not try Oatmeal/ Almonds/ Berries or a Spinach & Feta Omelette with a slice of whole-grain toast)
- Drink Green Tea & keep yourself hydrated with plenty of water
- Take a Omega 3 Supplements or eat some Omega 3 rich Fish such as Salmon, Herring & Tuna
- Include Paprika & Chilli in your diet
Monthly Training Tip
Want to increase your muscle mass?
One method used a lot by body builders is Hypertrophy exercise.
Firstly, work out your one repetition personal best on compound exercises such as Dead Lifts, Squats and Bench Press.
Once you have this, calculate what 75% of your one repetition max weight is for each exercise, then aim to carry out 3 – 4 sets of 8 – 15 repetitions at this calculated weight.
This method can also be used as an isolated exercise.
