My Exercise Advice
I’m sure you’ve been bombarded with many tips on how to exercise properly from your friends, family and spray tanned celeb coaches selling you the next big thing….
I’d like to focus your attention on ‘Functional Exercises’ and the benefits of using them in your training program….
Ok here goes….
What is Functional Training?
Functional training is designed to train and develop your muscles to make it easier and safer to perform everyday activities, such as carrying groceries or playing a game of soccer with your kids. Put Simply, functional exercises help improve the quality of your life by strengthening the body for everyday tasks.
Functional exercises train your muscles to work together and prepare them for daily tasks by simulating common movements you might do at home, at work or in sports. While using various muscles in the upper and lower body at the same time, functional exercises also emphasize core stability….
Check out this infographic to get a visual understanding of functional training and the different exercises that relate to our every day movements:
Guess what? There are no secrets, no quick fixes, no diet pills, and it is definitely not one size fits all.
Are you still reading?
We all want results, like yesterday, but imagine if you could live a life without calorie counting, macro confusion (what’s a macro?) and if you had the knowledge to change your life.
My body is my machine, and food is my fuel – I don’t eat for a reward or to punish myself. I eat to nourish and fuel my machine.
I like to educate my clients about THEIR body and for them to understand how THEIR ‘machine’ works.
Low carb works for some, paleo works for others, then there is vegan, fasting, the list goes on… Sound confusing? – it really shouldn’t be… so read my tips below:
Be mindful when eating:
Keep a food diary – nothing too detailed, just to give you an indication of your eating habits.
Do you eat when stressed? Tired? Happy?
If you eat something and feel sick or bloated, then don’t eat it! Tune in to how your body feels when you eat.
Don’t count on it:
Macros and calorie counting has it’s place for some people. For athletes nutrition is a science but if you don’t fall into the ‘competing in the olympics’ category then you need to be kind to yourself and do not put the pressure on with tracking calories/food/macros.
This can be a simple change to your food, with quick results.
Limit your sugar intake (including natural sugars from fruit) to under 10 tsps per day (40g) to start with and then aim for 5 tsps (25g) per day.
You are sweet enough – why?
Fat doesn’t make you fat – sugar does. Cavemen would binge on fruit sugars to make them fat… simple
Sugar will be stored around your squidgy tummy.
It can effect your skin and eyes and make you look tired and dull.
Sugar can make your organs fat.
It can effect mood, anxiety, stress, sleep.
It depletes your body of nutrients.
(I could talk all day about this!)
Our body can survive without carbohydrates but we NEED protein and fats to survive (I won’t bore you with the science… just yet….
….For now just think…
Eat PROTEIN with every meal
Do not be scared of FAT
MY PSYCHOLOGICAL ADVICE
Understanding what makes our bodies ‘healthy’ is a much bigger picture than losing weight or hitting the gym six times per week…. Research has shown stress has a significant impact on our bodies than what we actually think…. Life is an emotional rollercoaster and not a lot of answers for us mere mortals…. Whether it’s work, kids, family, friends or our everyday experiences, we put our bodies through such a stressful time…
I wanted to finish with an interesting video from ‘CrashCourse’, who talks us through the psychology of emotion, stress and health….
… consider smiling more and not taking things too seriously in life…. I know you’ve heard that many times, but we, as individuals are in control of how we feel and the thoughts at which go on in our head!
Leave your comments below about your own experiences please! Would love to hear from you all of what you think is important when looking at nutrition, exercise and the psychology of leading a healthier lifestyle…
