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

The Life of Bryan: Part 1

Written by Kinetica ambassador Bryan Keane: Right now I’m really happy.  4th place in my first World Cup Race this season, 32 seconds behind last year’s Olympic silver medallist Javier Gomez. 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. I swam, rowed, cycled and sailed. I ran right through my teens, and was a particularly good cross country runner, representing Ireland at... 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,...

How Much Protein Should You Eat?

I’m often asked how much protein you should eat if you want to build muscle. There’s a lot of myths about this that have been built up over the years, one of the most common myths is that your body can only consume 30g of protein at a time, any more than that and you just end up weeing out the amino acids. This is one of the oldest myths around and it came about due to a paper that was published that reported those findings (I’ve not been able... Read More
