020217: Australia day & Training Legs

Where ever you are in the world!!!!!!

Happy February and I hope everyone had an awesome Australia Day last week.

Last week I trained with a very good friend of mine Sean Massey and we Hit Legs and Coffee 🙂 I am currently 87.8kg’s at 12% Body Fat. I’m really happy with how my body is building on my current style of training and Food Plan (Macros). Calories are around the 3500-4000 mark at the moment.

My goal this off season is 92kg’s under 15% Body Fat before I start cutting toward my next Physique comp in October this year. I have been eating alot of good wholefoods, natural supplementation and intermittent fasting.

240117: Building a Big Chest

Yoooooo!!!!

So last week I met up with my close friend Angus Bailey for a Big Boss Chest workout. We have trained together on and off since I was 20 years of age. That was 10 years ago! Wow.

Angus is an INBA WA Body Building Champion, INBA International Judge, A Family and a all round Legend. Find him on INSTAGRAM @angus_bailey

MY TOP #4 MOVEMENT TO BUILD A BOSS STRONG CHEST

1. Barbell Bench Press

Why it’s on the list: You can generate the most power with barbell lifts, so the standard barbell bench allows you to move the most weight. It’s also an easier lift to control than pressing with heavy dumbbells. The exercise is easy to spot and relatively easy to learn (if not master), There are plenty of bench-press programs you can follow to increase your strength

In your workout: Do it toward the start of your chest workout for heavy sets in lower rep ranges. Consider varying your grip width for more complete chest development.

2. Flat Bench Dumbbell Press

Why it’s on the list: With dumbbells, each side of your body must work independently, which recruits more stabilizer muscles; dumbbells are harder to control than a barbell. Dumbbells also allow for a longer range of motion than the barbell bench press, both at the bottom and top of the movement. Flat dumbbell presses allow you to hoist a fairly heavy weight, and they make for a good alternative if you’ve been stuck on the barbell bench for ages.

In your workout: Do flat dumbbell presses toward the start of your chest workout for heavy sets in lower rep ranges. We don’t typically recommend doing dumbbell presses in addition to the barbell bench press, because both moves are so similar.

In fact, the similar nature of these movements was confirmed via electromyography (EMG) analysis, which demonstrated no significant differences between flat-bench dumbbell and barbell in regard to muscle activation.

3. Low-Incline Barbell Bench Press

Why it’s on the list: Many benches are fixed at a very steep angle, which requires a larger contribution from the front delts than the chest to move the weight.[2] If possible, go for a less-steep incline to hit the upper pecs without as much stress on the delts. You can also easily do low-incline benches with an adjustable bench on the Smith machine.

If you’re really looking to build that shelf of an upper chest, EMG results have suggested that bringing your grip in a bit closer may hammer upper-chest fibers significantly more

In your workout: Many chest workouts start with flat-bench movements first, then progress to inclines, but it’s time to get out of that bad habit. Every so often, start with inclines. The benefit is that you’ll be fresher and can lift more weight, which puts a greater amount of stress on the upper pec fibers and could lead to more growth.

4. Pec-Deck Machine

Why it’s on the list: Chest flyes are hard for many trainees to learn with dumbbells or cables because the arms need to be locked in a slightly bent position for the duration of the exercise. Luckily, the pec deck simplifies things because it allows you to work in only one pathway. So, this exercise is a great movement teacher, and you can go for a great pump without having to balance any weights.

EMG data shows that activation of the pectoralis major and anterior delt are statistically similar between the pec deck and bench press, which means that even though you’ll probably be working in different rep ranges for each exercise, you’ll get great chest activation from this machine.

Get into it!!!! Find your gym partners or get yourself a Personal Trainer. Form is very important as well as finding the right intensity to suit your goals.

Fight Back Against Muscle Loss

Beginning around age 30, we begin to lose muscle and gain body fat every year. Specifically, age-related muscle loss occurs at an average rate of three to five percent per decade between the ages of 30 and 60 and accelerates significantly after age 60 (1). This is a serious concern since abnormally low muscle mass, know as sarcopenia, is linked to loss of strength and mobility, culminating in unhealthy aging and frailty.

The good news is that no matter your age, you can take steps to improve your muscle health. Both good nutrition and regular exercise are essential to maintaining muscle mass over time. If you want to give your muscles the best support, these are three steps you can take today to boost your muscles now and in the future.

1.      Focus on Protein

Dietary protein is essential for ensuring muscle health. A number of studies have shown that people who consume higher amounts of protein over time, maintain more muscle mass compared to those who consume less protein (2). Consuming enough protein-rich foods every day is important, but scientific studies have shown that the source of protein also matters when it comes to preventing age-associated muscle loss. For example, numerous scientific studies support whey protein as the best source of protein to promote muscle building for people of all ages (3). Additionally, scientific studies suggest timing of protein intake is important and that dividing your protein intake evenly throughout the day creates an ideal environment for maintaining and building muscle (4). So, your best strategy is to choose a balanced amount of protein at each meal and make sure you include a quality source of whey protein on a regular basis.

2.      Get Your Vitamin D

It has long been known that vitamin D is important for healthy bones but continued research has also identified a role for vitamin D in muscle function. In several recent studies, researchers found that vitamin D supplements supported improved muscle strength and balance for older adults (5). Surprisingly, one third of all U.S. adults have low levels of vitamin D, or vitamin D insufficiency (6). For people who live in southern latitudes moderate daily sun exposure can help your body make its own vitamin D, but people who live outside of the sun belt or who spend most of their time indoors are at increased risk of suboptimal vitamin D concentrations. Consuming fortified foods and supplementing with vitamin D are more reliable approaches to adequately meeting your body’s vitamin D needs.

3.      Resist Muscle Loss With Resistance Exercise

Regular exercise is one of the most important strategies for maintaining strong, lean muscle. Any type of physical activity has benefits for muscle health, but resistance exercise, such as lifting weights, is more effective for increasing muscle mass and strength (7). Regardless of your level of fitness, adding resistance exercise three days per week will have great benefits for both protecting and building muscle.

Better Together

Each of these tips for boosting muscle health can have great benefits on its own. However, the results of a recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition demonstrates that all three work together to produce combined benefits (8). In this study, researchers developed a program to help improve muscle health in older adults who had low muscle mass. The researcher’s program evaluated the use of whey protein, vitamin D supplements, and strength training exercises compared to a group of subjects who only exercised. The exercise-only group showed some improvement in muscle health; however, the group following the combined exercise and nutrition program showed significantly greater improvements in muscle health and added more than three pounds of muscle on average over the course of the 12-week study.

Muscle loss is a gradual process with effects that accumulate over time. To stop negative effects of muscle loss, it’s important for people of any age to take steps to support muscle health with sound nutrition and regular exercise. Especially when used together, whey protein, vitamin D and strength training can combine to give your muscles a boost.

191116: Your Muscles are THIRSTY

You know that growing muscles require lots of protein, but they need even more water. Don’t wait for dehydration to impact your performance. Fill up on one of the most anabolic agents there is!

When you’re watching elite physique competitions like events constituting Olympia Weekend, it can be easy to come to the conclusion that water is something to be “shed” in the quest for a more defined physique. While it’s definitely true that dehydration practices are common in contest prep, in any other setting water is quite simply one of the most important anabolic nutrients you can ingest. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most overlooked.
jacewater.jpg

A few years back, the Sports Science Institute collaborated with Bally Total Fitness on a hydration-focused study, and researchers determined that more than 40 percent of participants going into a group exercise class were partially dehydrated.1 How strongly this percentage carries to strength training individuals is unclear, but there’s no doubt about the negative impact that dehydration has on performance in weightlifting, as well as on muscular growth and recovery.

You’ve probably heard that the human body consists of approximately two-thirds water. However, this number barely begins to portray the importance of H20 from a muscular or training perspective. Let’s plumb the depths of what water means to you in the gym.

A Little Bit of Dehydration Makes a Big Difference

Several studies have indicated that during aerobic performance, such as running or cycling, performance begins to decrease when dehydration progressively exceeds 2-3 percent body weight loss.5 That may sound like a lot, but research has also shown that the thirst sensation doesn’t really kick in until you’re already dehydrated. So if it helps, think of it this way: If you’re thirsty, your performance may already be affected.

For intense training, such as multiple sprint sessions and weight training, the window is slightly larger, but the impact can still be dramatic. Power generation is thought to become compromised at 3-4 percent reduction in body weight, but one research study was able to show that upper and lower body power output was reduced after 3 percent dehydration. The researchers concluded this simple amount was enough to increase athletes’ risk of injury.6-7

Fill The Tank!

When we do the math, it becomes clear that our dietary need for water far exceeds any other essential nutrient. The symptoms of water deficiency begin to show much more rapidly than for any other nutrient, and as such, water should be a top priority throughout the day—especially if you train.

General recommendations for people who train and sweat are 3-5 litres per day, or the equivalent of about 7-15 pounds of water. Do you think this is a lot of water? Well, don’t sweat it! Some of it will come from fruits—which are often 80 percent water—and other foods. However, the bulk of your liquid needs need to come from water and watery beverages, including milk. Many weight trainers and strength athletes will hydrate before a workout and train with water bottles nearby or will frequent the water fountain, but others still ignore hydration opportunities before and during training.

Even pre-workout drinks, BCAAs, and electrolyte-based performance fluids consumed during training contribute to hydration, and the timing helps muscle cell volumization. As a general rule, drink fluids throughout the day and try to create the balance between not feeling thirsty and not spending too much time in the bathroom.

Don’t leave your results up to chance. Staying hydrated is the cheapest, easiest way there is to maximize your performance in the gym and afterward, so keep a bottle close at hand and always know where you can get more!

1310216: Eat for Productivity, Energy and Longevity

Eat for Productivity, Energy and Fat Longevity

Eating for productivity and eating for energy is actually simpler than many think.

Why do we really eat?

When playing sport, going to the gym or Yoga, Building a business, travelling or just going through your day to day life, fueling your mind and body towards success starts at the mouth. What we put into our bodies affects our performance physically and mentally.

 You decide!

If we choose to eat poorly, consuming highly processed foods like fatty fast food, chips (French fries) and sugary drinks etc, we feel sluggish and tired. The scales will also let you know when your body isn’t happy. If we eat fresh vegetables, fruit, lean meats, nuts, seeds and other dense minerals and vitamins or bodies feel alive, energetic, balanced and healthy. You wouldn’t put cheap fuel in a Ferrari, why do the same with your body.

At Boss Strong Fitness and LifeStrong Movement we believe in intermittent fasting, dense nutrients and making every calorie count and ensuring our food is of high quality. The way we structure our eating allows us to sleep better, wake up with more energy and feel better both physically and mentally. Building a body and mind toward success in life takes a lot of effort and so it’s important to look after our one body, our temple.

We eat so our bodies can move, be awake and alive.

I personally use a dense nutrient Nutritional System with Isagenix. In today’s fast paced world it fits my lifestyle and it is the only natural cleansing and nutrient product I endorse with pride as it has help my family and myself in so many ways.

EAT FOR STRENGTH, PRODUCTIVITY, SUCCESS, LIFE and LOVE!

290916: Building Biceps

Happy Sunday!

I hope everyone has been awesome and is working toward their goals. Winter is gone and Spring is here but the cold mornings and winds are still here in Perth, Western Australia. A lot of people are starting to dust the cobwebs off and getting out for their morning walks and gym sessions.

I know that in today’s society that seems to be 90% of the populations yearly health and fitness cycle. When it’s cold stay inside and eat hot foods. When its Warm, get healthy, shredded and head to the beach. As a Personal trainer and Lifestyle Mentor I empower people to live a balanced life and mindset all year round so you dont have these physical and emotional ups and downs. It is not the easiest thing to do but it can be done.

Yes one way would be to travel the world throughout the year and chase the sun but its not most peoples reality. SO LETS CREATE A HEALTHY MINDSET CHANGE AND LETS GET INTO ACTION NOW! 🙂

—————————————-

Building strong arms is always a want for most men. I remember comparing biceps with mates in primary school all the way up til the end of high school. hahaha

Isn’t it funny how we use our biceps or chest muscles to compare each others strength and masculinity. As I grew up, joined the Australian Navy, got educated and did my Master Personal Trainers and Strength & Conditioning. First thing, I now know that that majority of your arm size comes from your Tricep muscles (back of your arm) and your true strength and masculinity comes from your determination, consistency and hard work.

BUTTTTTT……… It’s still great to have BIG BICEPS & and a well built CHEST 🙂 hahah

arniearms

Check this great artlicle out from BodyBuilding.com on Building Biceps.

———————————–

In bodybuilding everybody wants big biceps, as they are a most impressive area to develop, and given their high visibility and superficiality, signify strength perhaps like no other body part. When someone asks, “flex a muscle” they do not want to see your calves. It is the biceps that are usually requested.

Also, the greatest professional bodybuilding champions are usually those who are known for tremendous biceps size and shape. From the Austrian Oak, Arnold Schwarzenegger, through to current Mr. Olympia, Ronnie Coleman, great champions usually possess great biceps.

The biceps grouping (anatomically known as the biceps brachii), of which there are two heads (the short head or outer biceps and the long head, or inner) comprise the upper portion of the upper arm and are responsible for elbow flexion (moving the hand toward the shoulder), elbow supination (rotating the palm upward) and shoulder flexion/transverse flexion.
