🪨 lifting is always fun!!! 💪.

I'm 99% sure you have heard that you need to make sure you're sleeping well if you hope to achieve your performance or body composition goals. But has anyone ever told you why??

It's to do with your body's respiratory exchange ratio, or RER for short. RER is easy to understand. It's a way to measure what fuel source your body is primarily using.

A low RER means that your body burns a more significant proportion of fat. A higher RER number means that your body burns a more substantial proportion of carbohydrates or protein.

Lack of sleep increases RER without affecting your metabolic rate. So for the same 2,000 BMR, you'll be burning less fat and more carbohydrate/protein. See how this can affect your body composition goals.

Do your warm up sets look the same as your top sets? working sets or maxes? You should approach and lift the barbell exactly the same as you do for each set. This reinforces proper technique, good movement and motor patterns, reduces the chances of injury and gets you in good habits if you compete. I mean there's more reasons you should do this but I thought i'd give you a few.

Chasing perfection often leads to the dreaded “paralysis by analysis”

Is far better to simply aim to get slightly better results than you’re currently getting. Go for the low hanging fruit first. What’s the smallest change you can make to make an improvement? That’s what you need to aim for.

Good enough isn’t just good enough - it’s all there is!

Suffering from an injury this post is for you! Many of you reading this will have either suffered from back pain or know someone suffering from back pain. I think the statics are roughly 60-70% of people end up suffering from back pain at some point in their life. Pushing your body to its limit comes with risks, and as athletes or hobbyists, we....

There should always be a reason for wanting to train even if you're not training for anything specific. Me being competitive I want to win constantly but even if you don't have the same mindset you should train to be better than you was previously. Have the mindset of constantly wanting to be better and you've won half the battle already.

I would say the drop in reps has made axle squats easier. I was wrong, it still kills the arms but the 10s have definitely been necessary.
Probably worth tidying up the technique but the weight feels pretty easy which is absolutely lovely!

Been practising handstand push-ups in the last block and the challenge and difficulty of them is pretty fun so it’s good to keep them in. Nearly getting my head flat on the floor….if only I was a few kilos lighter maybe I’d manage then!

Using the wall for balance so I can actually stay vertical but the balance is getting a lot easier the more I practise.

It's all well and good training and training hard but if you want to have a serious edge on your competition then you need to practise under pressure. That can go for any sports, whether you're competing in strength sports or field sports. Practise often, practise hard and practise under pressure.

Leave no stone unturned.

Dead Hang! If you struggle with shoulder mobility and health, give the dead hang exercise a go. It'll help strengthen grip, it'll pull the shoulder joint back into it's natural position. Helps with thoracic extension and gives a nice upper body stretch...the list could go on.

But if you've got a shoulder niggle definitely give them a try. Aim to do 3x30s daily or if you can't build the time up until you can do this.

It's all well and good being strong but if you've got a weak link somewhere or your prone to aches and pains then you can be doing better. Often not included or overlooked but loaded carries, unilateral work or sled drags will definitely help make you the strongest and physically dominant person you've ever been.

The end is in sight and I'm planning on playing some proper rugby again this month and finishing off the season. The next big step is just taking a hit and proper contact but after a few times the confidence will be there. At this stage i'm sure it's mostly confidence going back in now.

Running is pain free now. It took a couple weeks to re-learn how to run properly and efficiently again. But i'm happy I can sprint and push off both legs now. Now it's just about getting myself ready for match fitness and i'm definitely feeling it in the gas tank these past couple field sessions.

S&C is still high rep and high sets. Gradually adding the kilos every session so progress is still going forward. Trying to make the rests relatively shorter or do a superset to work on the work capacity a little more.

Noticing the stretching and deep tissue work is helping a lot. Theres only 1 position I know off now that's causing me slight pain and it's nearly back at full ROM. So all my other ways of gauging progress have slowly been eliminated which is great! Just this final hurdle but it's not too much of a problem.

Extras is mainly just prowler pulls and knee health & stability related exercises. Definitely doing wonders for me.

Strength training when performed properly, will massively increase the amount of force that all muscle fibres can produce. Stronger muscles mean greater force production. Greater force production means greater propulsion of the body during the drive phase of the endurance activity. It'll condition your body to sustain movement under heavy loads.
There's more reasons to strength train to aid your endurance activity and goals but we can talk about that another time.

Possibly just as important as being physically resilient. Definitely harder to develop though. Do something that challenges you and pushes you!
