Thinking man wasn’t a thing

  If you were a young boy in the 60s, 70s or 80s you probably had an Action Man.   Maybe you had one if you were a young girl then, but they were definitely more ‘binary’ times.   You remember, don’t you?   The wiggly eyes from the switch on the back of his…

It’s like walking then sprinting

  Imagine you’ve got two pals.   They’re both in a race.   They finish at the same time.   Both setting PBs.   Exact same result.   One jogged at a steady pace.   One sprinted then walked.   Who did better?   They, of course, both did the same.   Which approach worked…

It’s like reloading the bar for 21 singles

  I’m doing a lot of squats at the moment.   Regular weighted ones to try and build my squat back up after injury.   Imagine I wanted to do 21 reps.   I set the bar up, adding the weight and did one rep.   Then stripped the bar off and put the weights…

Full destructive wipe?

  I’ve been on a bit of a rampage recently.   Clearing up little things that mildly irritate me or slow me down.   Nothing major but things that just take that bit of mental space and energy away from something more important I could focus it on.   I’ve installed Google Pay so I…

When I was a very small boy, very small boys talked to me

“When I was a very small boy, very small boys talked to me”

  If you’ve read these blogs for a while, you’ll know that I’m sometimes listening to the wireless in my car and a song lyric jumps out at me.   You’ll also know that I say olde words like wireless (for the radio) that were already outdated when I was young, just to wind my…

Friday: "I love it when a plan comes together"

“I love it when a plan comes together”

  You know who said that, don’t you?   “I love it when a plan comes together”   Surely everyone does?   Hannibal from The A Team innit?   Pretty much every week he, Faceman, Howling Mad Murdoch and BA would be captured by the bad guys.   Locked in a tool shed or similar.…

Eating after 6pm?

Eating after 6pm?

  Someone asked me the other day if they should not eat after 6pm.   As always, if one person has a question, others will too.   So here’s the answer.   It’s up to you.   If it helps you create an overall weekly average that takes you in the right direction, it is…

We WON'T optimise your training and nutrition

We WON’T optimise your training and nutrition

  I mentioned an ad I’d seen from a local facility in one of last week’s blogs.   About what they do not being a “transformation”.   ###### And, therefore, being a minimal, or temporary change 😉 #########   Got quite a few replies from you lovely folk.   Many pointing out other phraseology that…

“I haven’t got time to make more time”

  As a population, we’ve never been so busy.   More and more demands on out time.   We get this.   We know.   Because it’s the same for us.   But……….   That doesn’t always mean that we’re using the time available to us as smartly as we could.   When we say…

High fives and changing lives

  I was in Newcastle on a quarterly meet up last Friday as part of the coaching programme I’m in.   ######## As mentioned before, beware coaches who want to coach you but don’t have coaches themselves. They either have every single aspect of their life absolutely perfect (unlikely) or they don’t believe in coaching…
