The Life of Bryan: Part 4

Written by Kinetica ambassador Bryan Keane: I said goodbye to sunny Ireland last week for the even sunnier Spain. I’m out here right now with my Australian training group for the last 11 weeks of my season, with four races left, so the big push is on. Having had to live out of a bag for 5 months in Australia earlier on in the year, I decided that I didn’t like having only 2 t-shirts to wear so I loaded up the car and took the boat to Spain. Off...

Ronan McLaughlin’s Nutritional Blog (Interim)

Written by Kinetica fuelled, An Post CRC cyclist Ronan McLaughlin. After looking into pre-race nutrition in my last piece, I will be writing about how I fuel myself during a stage today. The energy I took on with my breakfast would be enough to fuel me at race pace for between one and two hours, but because we need to race for up to five or six hours at a time in some of the longer races it’s important to keep right on top of fuelling from the start. I... Read More

I am finally back in the game. Let me rewind a little. Growing up I was into everything; my mother often says if there was a three-legged race being run I’d be out to win it.

Building the Bulls: A Review to Date

After a very successful pre-season under the guidance of Strength and Conditioning Coach Tom Clough and Head Coach Francis Cummins, we are now 6 games into our 2013 Super League campaign. So where have we come from and where are we now from a nutritional perspective? The squad came together in early November, following some initial testing, when our pre-season period began. Pre-season was very tough on the boys as they were performing multiple sessions a day, generally consisting of gym based strength/power/hypertrophy work, pitch and gym based fitness blocks,...

Rob Palmer’s Nutrient Timing

  After completing my last competition in February, I weighed a whopping 89.1 kg. I was more than happy with the lifts, which consisted of 3 British records and more importantly 3 personal bests on the squat, bench press and total. It took me a step closer to the big 900kg total that I have been chasing for the last 3-4 years. One problem – I lift in the 83kg class! I was 6.1kg overweight. The strongest I have ever been, but fatter. The EPF European championship is being held... Read More
