Plan Your Week
weekly-meal-planner-page-1[1]

Hi Everyone.

I hope you had an awesome, relaxing long weekend.

Shame about Manly’s loss. It didn’t help that the referee was one sided 🙂

Let’s talk about planning your week ahead. We are all time poor and let’s face it, we would all rather be doing less and enjoying more. So it is really important to plan our meals and our workouts a week ahead.

Set aside 1 hour a week to plan your shopping, meals and your weekly gym routine. Ordering your groceries online will also save you time and energy. Pre make your lunches. Salads are so easy to pre make and store in containers in the fridge. Protein Balls are also an easy snack item to carry around with you.

The Gym Factory at Warriewood is happy to assist you with food ideas, recipes, planning your gym routine and food plan for the week. Come down and have a chat to one of our PT’s. They are happy to assist you with planning your week.

PROTEIN AND TRAINING
whey-protein[1]

Hi Everyone

So how important is Protein as part of your training regime. Very Important. Protein is an essential nutrient for power and peak performance and recovery Adequate protein consumption is vital for health. When you train, you especially need sufficient protein for muscle growth and repair. Having Protein after a workout rapidly assists the natural breakdown of muscle that occurs following a workout. This will help you recover faster and train at greater intensity in your next training session.

Protein may help improve your overall performance and recovery when supplemented pre- and post- exercise. Also, by adding protein to your pre-exercise meal, you will have a lowered glycaemic index (GI) of the carbohydrates ingested along with it. This is good news for maintaining more regular blood sugar levels and a regular source of energy during your training.

The 30 minutes post-exercise is the most critical period, as your body is at its optimal state to receive and restore carbohydrates and protein. By consuming protein immediately after exercise, it enhances muscle growth and repair. In fact, recent research suggests that protein works most effectively if taken in the post-exercise window. So that gets me to the most important topic.

Exercising Whilst On Holdays
pregnancy_exercise_libby_dips_231x183

 

I have just come back from a small holiday for my mates 30th Birthday and it prompted me to talk about Exercising Whilst on Holidays

Always pack your runners and workout gear so there are no excuses that you can’t exercise. If you have any resistance bands, skipping ropes pack these as well. They don’t take up much if any room at all.

Being outdoors clears the mind and soul. Being away from your usual environment gives you a feeling of freedom and a new sense of energy and liberation

 

There are a number of ways you can get a workout in whilst on holidays. Below are a few exercises that are simple to do

 

  • Walking or running on the beach
  • Snorkelling
  • Bike riding
  • Golf
  • Tennis
  • Skipping
  • Lunges
  • Grab a chair and workout those triceps
  • Crunches

While the kids are at the park you can organise a small circuit.

Training During Pregnancy

Training During Pregnancy

Firstly congratulations to all you females out there who are expecting. Most beautiful time in your life. There is nothing more beautiful than a female pregnant

If you are not sure about training while you are pregnant ask your obstetrician/gynaecologist and see what they advise

My gynaecologist was most happy for me to continue my exercise regime as I had been exercising for many, many years. Obviously I had to change certain areas of training, but it is really important for your health and well being to train.

I strongly suggest as a female that you listen to your body though as you know best and will feel if something isn’t right

 

Weight-Training-During-Pregnancy

Below are a few key areas to look at if you are training

  • Only exercise to 70% of your maximum heart rate (220 minus your age x 0.7) and no more
  • Do Low to Moderate Aerobic Activity and Strength and Resistance Training
  • Remember to hydrate and take regular breaks
  • Dress Comfortably
  • Don’t do anything risky
  • Don’t perform excessive ab work
  • Don’t do exercises that jolt, jerk or twist your body
  • Don’t hold your breath when exercising
  • Don’t overheat

The Gym Factory in Warriewood can assist you if you are unsure on what is the right thing to do training wise whilst being pregnant
