Exercise Myth Busters #36

Fasting will help you lose more weight

To build a lean, healthy body then you must eat. You can’t starve off the unwanted fat, rather you must work with your body and supply it with the energy that it requires to exercise safely and effectively and get through the day. Your body will fight back if you fast by burning its fat stores more slowly as it fears it will run out of energy and insulation.  It will also break down your muscle and you will become highly fatigued, weak and your immune system will begin to fail in the long-term. There is also the risk you will start binge eating on anything and everything and eventually when you stop fasting you will regain the weight you lost in the first place.

Man Up Monday Personal Fitness Training Workout 13

Good Morning, yet another weekend has come and passed us by and its that much loved day of the week….Monday! 🙁

Not to stress through as its time for your weekly dose of ‘man up’ and I think its about time we had a bit of check and see how our fitness levels are coming along. Today we are going to do a lap of Melbourne’s own The Tan Track. One of my favourite runs in Melbourne

Starting on the Alexandra Avenue side. Run a lap as fast as you can in a clockwise direction.

Once you have finished record your time and post it below. You can also use that as a regular target to aim for to improve upon.

Have fun and enjoy the run!

Lazy Sunday @ Paintball

Good morning, well its the post AFL grand final aftermath and no doubt there are a few sore heads waking up  in Melbourne today.

But just to get you up and active for a sensational Melbourne Sunday afternoon, try and get together with a group of friends and head on down to your nearest paintball centre for afternoon full of fun, laughs and the odd bruise too.

With many fields located all over Melbourne both indoor and outdoor there is sureto be one close to you. So why not check it out for an afternoon you are sure not to forget in a hurry.

And best yet while you are desperately running around trying to avoid being hit by a barrage of paintballs there is sure to be loads of calories burnt up in the process.

So good luck and happy hunting.
