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

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,...

A Question of Taste

  Sports science is having an increasing impact in the world of business, and the area of sports nutrition is no exception. Top sportsmen and women are always looking at ways of improving their performance, and do so in the knowledge that their bodies are similar to a Formula 1 car – no matter how good the engine and the driver, if you put in the wrong fuel, it won’t perform very well! As a consequence, athletes from all sports are always looking for new nutritional supplements that might give... Read More

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...

Burgess Hill – FASTER, HIGHER, STRONGER

Back in February, Kinetica and Rugby World got together to offer a grass roots rugby team a great opportunity to be participate in training day at London Irish.  The winners of this competition was Sussex One team Burgess Hill RFC who are in their 50th season. The club had come so close in recent years to gaining promotion but the play offs was to be their stumbling block. The day at Irish was something that Burgess will not forget, and one that every muscle in their bodies would remember for a lifetime. The... Read More

Ultra Distance Tips

With Kinetica Sports heavily involved in a number of ultra endurance events such as the Gower Triathlon, Montane 50/100 and The Sandman, we got Elite Sports Nutritionist and Kinetica Sports ambassador Matt Lovell to offer  tips on competing in Ultra races.Ultra activities are very, very different to other forms of endurance – the rules change, the substrates (forms of fuel) change and different strategies need to be employed to maintain optimum performance during these events.  Here are a few thoughts I have on the subject;  Ultra endurance events require a higher level of...
