Advanced Abdominal Workout

Today I bring you my Advanced Abdominal Workout. While all of the exercises are substantially harder than both my beginners and intermediate abdominal workouts, most people will be able to do them with a little bit of practice.

The thing with abdominal work is that it often hurts when doing it so we give up early, when the very thing we should be doing is pushing through that pain to encourage our abdominal to get stronger!

Strong abdominals are important as we use them every single day and they also help our back muscles as well, between the two they do a very good job at helping us as functional human beings.

Why do we overeat?

You know that feeling you get when you have eaten too much? It’s commonly referred to as a food baby.

I wanted to spend a little bit of time looking at why we overeat. Often if we understand the reasons behind why we do something we can begin to address these reasons why and then change our behaviour.

How 8 hours and $169 can save lives!

Have you ever thought how nice it would be to be that person who didn’t panic when an accident happened?” With $169 and just one day of your life YOU have the ability to save people’s lives

With a mother who is a nurse and my own Personal Training Qualification done and dusted, I figured it was about time to get a first aid course under my belt. When I think of first aid courses the first thought that springs to mind is St John so naturally I attended one of their courses.

Let me make it clear that I am a complete wuss when it comes to all things medical, needles and blood make me cringe a little bit. Now I know this cringing is largely due to not wanting to be poked with needles, have blood oozing from me or to be sick myself and partly due to not knowing what to do if an emergency did arise.

First Power Lifting Competition

I did it! I entered my first powerlifting competition and successfully competed! I was pretty nervous about entering a power lifting competition as I didn’t really know how I would go at all, and well you have to lift in front of people! 

The first thing I needed to conquer was the weigh-in. I had registered in the 57kg open class, however on our scales at home I was always VERY close to going over this and having to go up to the 63kg class. Luckily for me the scales at the gym seemed to be generous (and you also weighed in your underwear, where at our home scales I weighed with some clothes on).

I spoke about why the Abdominal are important in my last post so I won’t go into that again today. If you want to find out more then have a look at my beginner abdominal workout
