Leg Day

Try this fast but brutal session for your next leg day and see how fast you can complete it. 10 lengths (15m per length) of each of the following: body weight prowler, body weight sled and 1/2 body weight farmers walk. My client Mark completed it in an impressive 13:06. This was his idea as well!

Protein Pancakes

As a personal trainer I absolutely love protein pancake, they make an ideal post workout snack. I been experimenting, trying to find my favourite recipe and sides to accompany this tasty little snack…After trying many different recipes I think the below is the best!

Ingredients:

25g Rolled Oats

1 Banana

1 Egg

1 Scoop of Whey Protein (Vanilla)

Pinch of Ground Cinnamon

Splash of Almond Milk

Instructions:

Blend the oats, banana, egg, milk, cinnamon and whey protein. Add some coconut oil to a frying pan and pour the mixture in once the pan is hot, fry for approx 1:30 (depending on heat) on each side and serve with natural or greek yogurt raspberries and strawberries (or any fruit of your choice) for a tasty and healthy snack.

Training for Ironman

An Ironman Triathlon is about as tough as it gets. This long-distance triathlon race consists of a grueling 2.4-mile (3.86 km) swim, a staggering 112-mile (180.25 km) bicycle ride and then a full marathon 26.2-mile (42.2 km) run… in a row… without a break.

So how do you prepare for what is widely considered one of the most difficult one-day sporting events in the world? Training for one these events requires months in some cases years of hard work and dedication to deliver the desired results. Luckily for me I am not partaking in an Ironman event, however I do know somebody who is and I was fascinated to discover what it took to prepare for the event.

Any endurance event, particularly one that covers over 140 miles, requires dedicating a serious amount of time to training, put simply the more time spent swimming, cycling and running consistently the greater improvement when the race comes around. That said some time spent in the gym to focus on some strength and core work can be built into any training schedule to help reduce the risk of injury.

Developing a training schedule around your own lifestyle is essential and will significantly increase adherence, support from family, friends and training partners can give you a massive boost and is often cited as one of the most important factors (basically get the husband/wife on-board first). Fail to prepare…prepare to fail, sometimes the best laid plans sometimes come to ruin, so always have a back-up so that you can adapt your training or nutrition to work around schedule.

No training training should ignore nutrition, it is vital to ensure you fuel your body correctly through grueling training sessions and allows your body to recover and adapt faster. Seeking advice or researching nutrition is therefore essential to ensure you understand what you are putting in your body and how to fuel it.

It’s far from easy, but with preparation and a bit of iron will, this true test of endurance can be completed.
