The power of protein

During our adolescent years we were encouraged to finish everything on our plate, we were told never to snack between meals and the largest meal of the day was often served in the evening. Today many of us are working hard to reprogram our mind and body to adopt modern day eating habits to improve health and wellbeing.

Grabbing a coffee on the way into the office or a muffin from the local service station is not considered a healthy start to the day. Breakfast – meaning to break the overnight fast is the most important meal of the day and should not be brushed off or skipped all together.

Getting the most out of your recovery time

When your body is put under pressure and muscles are pushed beyond their comfort zone, fatigue and muscle soreness can set in. After exercise you can feel sore, tired and weak as your body begins to repair the torn muscles during the natural recovery process.

Protein Supplements – the difference between whey and casein

Milk contains two main proteins: whey and casein, both commonly used in sports nutrition products. They are both high-quality proteins naturally rich in branch chain amino acids (BCAAs) essential for muscle growth and repair. Although both whey and casein come from milk there is a distinct difference between the two making it easy to determine which one is suitable for your training needs.

Winter Boot Camp Training

Early morning boot camp training or late night park sessions on a winters night – we have all been there. Whatever your drive to get out in the cold, putting strain on your body while neglecting your diet truly can result in a waste of time. Experts say diet influences 70-80% of the results and the remaining 20-30% comes from training.
