Another collection of empowering personal training and nutrition tips you can use straight away in your attempts to improve your health, mindset, body composition and performance.

1)  KISS – KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID…

Don’t over complicate your daily nutrition. Keep it simple…

Generally speaking:

Adjust your nutrition around your workout taking into account the muscle group worked and your level of perceived exertion (effort)….

The bigger the muscle group (usually) the harder the session – the more food you will need (carbs and protein) and vice versa if working a smaller muscle group.

The remainder of the day focus on consuming good quality sources of protein, vegetables and fat. Ensure to rotate food choices in order to take advantage of the different nutrient profiles/qualities various foods provide…

2) ENERGY SYSTEM TRAINING

Think of your body as the most efficient, effective machine known to man. You tell it to get bigger, it gets bigger. You tell it to get stronger, it gets stronger. The same goes with energy system training.

If you train for aerobic development, the body does everything in its power to become more efficient within the aerobic energy system.

– More aerobic enzymes.

– A bigger left ventricle of the heart.

– Improved utilization of oxygen at the muscular level, etc.

And of course the opposite is true as well. If you train the anaerobic system religiously, your body is going to become more efficient anaerobically as well.

This may seem like a very bland statement, but it’s also powerful.

We have to remember that every form of exercise we do sends a signal to our body, which will then create an adaptation.

3) BULKING UP ON CARBS…

Yes, it works! But, generally speaking I try to avoid over consumption of one macronutrient. Strive to achieve a balance between carb, protein and fat calories specific to you. They all serve a unique purpose…Carb-Cycling-Meme

4) Quick Food Fact: Leeks

Leeks contain kaempferol, a flavonol that may help fight cancer and lower your risk of chronic diseases including heart disease. They also contain antioxidants and vitamins A and K, along with healthy amounts of folic acid, niacin, riboflavin, magnesium and thiamin.

Leeks share many of the same health-supportive properties of garlic and onions, including benefits for your heart and anti-cancer and anti-diabetes properties.

Absolutely delicious in home made soup…
