So the team and I had our Christmas lunch / day out back on December 22nd at Indigo Yard in Edinburgh's West End. It provided a rare opportunity for us (minus coach Graeme who was struck down with the lurgy unfortunately!) to catch up in a social environment away from the [...]

I started lifting weights at 16. And, as a 16 year old, my ‘warm up’ consisted of waving my arms around, and loading the barbell up with as much weight as I could handle (sometimes more). That was about it. The only thing that saved me from too frequent of injuries, [...]

So it turns out training is only half the battle when it comes to building your ideal physique. … well, I guess nutrition is half the battle… so training is half of half the battle. Recovery is the other half. Or 25%. Or whatever the complicated fraction is I’ve managed to [...]

Developing The Mindset For Weight-loss

The weight loss journey would be a far simpler endeavour, if not for the emotional and psychological aspects that impact our decision making. If we replaced our minds with emotion/craving-less computer chips, we could just eat 100% all natural foods in a calorie deficit day in day out. But there is [...]

Crunches, sit ups, and planks. Ask the average gym goer how they intend to sculpt their midsection, and you’ll usually get one, two, or all three of these movements as a response. I’m not sure when spinal flexion and stationary bracing got a monopoly on our core training, but, if we’re [...]
