Improve your workout: track your heart rate

Improve your workout: track your heart rate

Last week we looked at the heart, and a summary of how much it can tell us about our workouts.  This week we will look in more depth to the benefits of tracking our heart rate while working out.

If you are serious about your training, then I thoroughly recommend purchasing a heart rate monitor. If you are serious about losing weight, getting ripped, or improving your conditioning then a heart…

When the scales can lie…

When the scales can lie…

So this week has been eye opening for me. I jumped on the scales for the first time in a LONG time, and I pushed out 82.5kg… I jumped off those scales pretty quick. It’s not the first time I’ve weighed in around that mark, only six months ago to be precise. But that time I was actually a wee bit chubby after a good Christmas and some extended time away from training.

I thought to myself, how can…

What is your heart really telling you??

What is your heart really telling you??

The heart is my favourite muscle hands down. You think with your heart, love with your heart and it is the constant formidable opponent to your brain. However this isn’t a love story. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in Australia and kills one Australian every 12 minutes, or approximately 1/3 of all deaths. Over the next two weeks I will be talking about the heart from a…

Practicing Team Kules Fitness Values - The First Month

Practicing Team Kules Fitness Values – The First Month

team kules fitness shield wings logo

It’s been a month since I signed off from social media for Team Kules Fitness. But since I am recovering from a bout of Gastro I thought I’d use the time to reflect on my first month working full time with the Army and share how I am still able to practice the Team Kules Fitness values on health and fitness. Naturally I’d love to tell you the stories about the bombs and rockets inside my pockets…

Food and Knowledge: Eating for Life - Part 1

Food and Knowledge: Eating for Life – Part 1

Food. We all know that when it comes to reducing body fat or gaining muscle, what you put in your mouth has a massive influence on the situation. Fitness and nutrition go hand in hand. Fitness is not a temporary thing, and nutritionshouldn’t be either. It’s a lifestyle. You have to be active and train all year round, so your nutrition needs to be in check all year round as well. You need to…

Sunday is for Planning… Part 2

So building on from my post earlier. I have meal prepped my lunches for the next 5 days, in the form of Moroccan Turkey. This way I can just grab’n’go during the week and know that I’m still getting all the right goodies. I can also put a whole recipe into MyFitnessPal and then it’s there to add in each day…

I planned the amount of ingredients before I cooked to suit my calorie and macro needs.…

Sunday is for Planning…

Sunday is for Planning…

We’ve all heard the age old saying ‘failing to plan, is planning to fail’, and in terms of reaching your health and fitness goals, this is so true. If I don’t plan for my week ahead today, by setting my days for training and preparing what food I will eat, then I know I fail, feel rushed, eat the wrong things, ad don’t train as hard. So let’s take a breath and prepare the week ahead…

Ramadan and Training in a Fasted State

Ramadan and Training in a Fasted State

Muslim_Man_Raising_Hands-2

Recently I have seen some bad press about Ramadan: the negative effects it has on the body, and how barbaric and stupid this practice is. Some of it really irked me, so I have decided to take this opportunity to deliver a few home truths about fasting, and training in a fasted state. I have a few mates who do Ramadan each year. But this year they will complete some really grueling training…

Training and the “I’m too busy” syndrome – Part 2

Welcome back to my three-part series on about fitting in training when we say “I’m too busy”. It happens. Life is busy! But our aim is to make fitness and health sustainable for the modern lifestyle. Last week we spoke about the health benefits of exercise, and how exercise can actually benefit your work! I know crazy, huh. If you haven’t read that post I recommend you go back and have a read…
