Defy your Limits


Canberra People with lack of Mobility!

Monday, October 3rd, 2011

Hey fellow Canberra Boot Camp & Canberra CrossFit people..

I am seeing a growing trend in many people not helping themselves out both in everyday life and also those who are into their fitness and health.

 Many Canberran’s are not doing anything to progress in their training and skills by failing to do any mobility or flexibilty work (not to mention what is happening to those that are sedentry on a daily basis).

It is vital that you spend time on your flexibilty if you wish to progress and get fitter, faster, stronger, or just to live longer for that matter!

I have just finished up a few sessions in my garage today, and I am seeing some lack of flexibilty in some people.

Here is an awesome resource tool for you. It is called the mobility WOD, run by Kelly Starrett, and he is the king of mobility in the CrossFit world, and he can certainly help YOU!!!

Check it out and get flexible:

What is Crossfit?

Thursday, July 29th, 2010

A blog to help you all better understand the Crossfit world and the style of training I am doing at the moment in Canberra. 

This little exerpt is taken direct from the Crossfit website. Check it out here: www.crossfit.com

CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide.
 
Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.

The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.

The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our terrorist hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.

Thousands of athletes worldwide have followed our workouts posted daily on this site and distinguished themselves in combat, the streets, the ring, stadiums, gyms and homes.

A blog on the benefits of shorter high intensity workouts

Since the fitness craze really started to pick up steam in the early 20th century, there have been two rather distinct camps, one stressing traditional workouts, and another stressing shorter, but more intensive and exhaustive training sessions. Even to this day, there is little scientific evidence to back up one side over the other. The truth is that each has merit, and should be made use of by the average person.

A high intensity workout simply refers to doing something with greater, you guessed it, intensity. This is generally defined by the measure of one’s heart rate. If you’re pushing your heart rate to near maximum capacity, you’re said to be engaging in a high intensity workout.

The actual differences in results aren’t vastly different. High intensity workouts typically burn more calories, while longer, lower-intensity workouts burn slightly more fat, so depending on your specific workout goals, those characteristics may factor into your decision.

Of course the other element to consider is that high intensity workouts are performed much quicker than low intensity ones, which is perfectly suited to the lives of busy folk all across the blue marble we call home. Whether it be lifting or using more weight with less reps, running or sprinting instead of jogging, or doing a more intensive but shorter cardio routine, you can get the same results in less time, as long as you’re willing to give the old ticker a good workout.

The great thing about working out is that it never has to be the same. If you’re running short on time, speed through a high intensity workout and be on your way. On days when you have the time for a full-fledged workout, take it slower, try new things, and enjoy the experience. Changing your routine has legitimate fitness benefits, as well as allowing you to work within the confines of your busy schedule.

I have done both long slow sessions and short sharp sessions, and have worked out the calories over a 24 hour period following the sessions. On every occasion I have burnt more calories doing a short 20 minute workout over a long slow workout.

This is why the crossfit style of training method is fast becoming the number one way to train.

If you are in the Canberra area and are looking to get into Crossfit then let me know and I will gladly get you started. Or stay tuned for my all NEW ‘body overhaul’ program due out soon that is all crossfit style training programs…

What sort of training do you like the best? Weights, boxing, pump??

Let me know your preferred method of training below??
