Peakology:useful information and tips thanks to Peak Physique!

with Brad Sheppard

Would you like even faster results from your personal training? If you would, you'll love Peakology. Peakology will bring you useful information and tips dedicated to enhancing your life through ground-breaking exercise and nutrition habits.

So set aside 3 minutes RIGHT NOW to read the following article and then implement the strategies, it's that simple! The results start when you do.

Feel like having a six-pack?

There's nothing quite like them. Individually, they possess that golden glow! They are sharp and have an icy-edge to them that gets you excited! And when you put your mouth to them….oh the sensation! They sit there, chilled, waiting for you to devour them…yep…with the word "Millers Genuine Draught" stamped on them, you can be assured that you will be kept well satisfied!

That's right, ladies and gentleman. There's no denying that an ice cold beer can't help put a smile on your face. Unfortunately for most what started off as a six pack has somehow ended up being a keg? What's worse is that the keg has ended up on your stomach!

Now, a six pack and a keg are at different ends of the continuum, I agree. However, the rate of change that your body can make is amazing. One moment you were in decent shape & your clothes fitted well and the next, well, you were drilling new holes in your belt! I have personally gained 10kg in a week after competitions, and trust me, this was not muscle!

Its cold now, but in about 8 weeks we will be lying on (what's left of) the sand at Noosa beach and wishing that 8 weeks ago we started taking the focus off the six-pack that is chilling in the fridge and onto the six pack that lies on your stomach! Remember, we all have a six pack of Abdominals, it just hidden better in some!

This is the first article in the abdominal trilogy. This month you will learn a couple of simple strategies on combating the dreaded keg appearing over these colder weeks:
To Avoid the Keg:

  • Compensate. Every time you eat something bad, drink too much beer, Or indulge in anything above and beyond your energy requirements make sure you move more. That's right, do an extra session on the spin bike, run the stairs at Kangaroo point another 10 times or go and do a Pump class! If you are not prepared to do the extra work, don't eat / drink it!
  • Change. Don't do the same exercise day in & day out. Ever tried to run on the treadmill backwards, skip with a rope on one foot or do a wall squat for 2 minutes non-stop? Get some variety in your program. This is one of the greatest forms of feedback we receive from clients is the wide variety of "stuff" we do with them. It keeps them excited.
  • Graze. Remember to keep eating smaller meals more often. I just averaged my food out over the last 2 weeks (yes, I still write my food down every day) and I have eaten, on average 9 meals / day. Adopt this philosophy. You don't have to eat 9 meals / day, but take your 2 largest meals & cut them in half. Then space them out.

Dietary Suggestions : It is a fact that coughs generally arise in winter more than other seasons. This is not only because virus "germs" are more prevalent, the average individual eats more heavily than ever of catarrh-forming foods (white bread, meat, sugar, cereals, puddings, pies, dairy products, starchy foods etc.). Also, more time is spent indoors or in stuffy atmospheres wearing clothes which do not allow proper ventilation of the skin, and less time is spent getting sufficient exercise.

Elimination of excess mucus is more rapid and efficient by fasting on fruit juices, particularly lemon and other citrus. Sweeten with honey if necessary. drink plenty of liquids, including herb teas, vegetable broth and pure water. This may be followed by a light diet of fruit, vegetables (mainly raw), and some seeds (raw and sprouted), beans, nuts, grains and wholegrain cereals as the condition improves. As with colds and other infections, rest is essential to allow the body's immune system to eliminate the cause and recover fully.

Laughter is the best medicine!

In dire need of a beauty make-over, Nancy went to her salon with a fashion magazine photo of a gorgeous, young, lustrous haired model. She showed the stylist the trendy new cut she wanted and settled into the chair as he began humming a catchy tune and got to work on her thin, graying hair. Nancy was delighted by his cheerful attitude until she recognized the melody. It was the theme from "Mission Impossible
