Fat Loss Circuit & Nutrition Advice from Jen Peglar PT at Six3Nine

By Jen Peglar PT @ Six3Nine Studio Covent Garden   There are three key components to a healthy lifestyle, nutrition, exercise and recovery – this is where a good night’s sleep is vital. When the goal is fat loss, nutrition is key. Of course well structured, regular physical activity is going to get you to your goal quicker but you simply cannot out train a poor diet. In order to lose weight (primarily fat), the equation is simple. You need to burn more calories than you consume so that you... Read More

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

Preparation Is Vital For Fat Loss

I often get asked this question about what I eat on a daily basis, especially when I am busy and with seemingly limited time to prepare quite a lot of food for my day. The guys at Kinetica asked me to give the customers a snapshot of what my typical day looks like. I have to admit, I spend a lot of money on food and with good reason.  I would rather fuel the human machine and make it function as it was designed.  Too many people complain they can’t...

Omega 3 for liver-health – a rodent-revelation!

Matt Lovell is a Kinetica Brand Ambassador and Sports Nutritionist to leading Rugby, Football and Atletics teams in the UK: Diets high in the “good fats” known as polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) can give health benefits by improving insulin sensitivity and fat-metabolism in liver, muscle and fat tissues. This study revealed that the strain on the liver was reduced by giving rodents fish-oils. Detoxi-liscious! Mice that were either genetically prone to get fat, or bread for exercise-performance, were either given high-fat diets or normal food for 8 weeks. The high... Read More

GIVE ME STRENGTH

One of the biggest myths I hear in gyms worldwide is that aerobics is the best form of exercise for fat loss. In my experience, strength training is simply a better long-term form of exercise than aerobic training. Latest studies have shown that performing strength training burns more fat by increasing fat oxidation during training and after the actual session. For the fastest body fat loss I use a protocol of whole-body functional strength training three times per week and combine this with sprint interval training for both male and... Read More
