How To Know When You’re Overtraining and Why It Should Be Avoided Like the Plague

Hi Everyone,

I have indeed moved to the lovely

So that it’s a bit easier for you to find my new site, I’ve decided to post “trailers” to my new posts on here.  To subscribe, so you know about new blog posts when they pop up (along with free information and offers if you so choose to indulge etc. that is yet to be revealed- oooooh), please fill the no frills subscribe box at the top right corner of the site. It asks for your e-mail, nothing else. You can unsubscribe at any time. Super easy.

So I’ve posted this new chunky article on overtraining, how to know when you’re overtraining and why it’s important not to fall into that trap. In this age of you can do anything, you don’t need sleep or rest society, we believe that we should put in our 200% regardless of how we do it. if we get worse from working too hard, we assume it’s because we’re not working hard enough! So it becomes a vicious cycle. But putting in the effort can mean training in a varied and more considerate way, not training for the sake of it in mass volume. Please click on the link below to see the full post:

Look forward to seeing you get involved on my site!


Fat People at the Gym- All hail

Getting the Perfect Body- Why you must know you’re already there

So in the course of this blog I certainly intend to shed light on fitness, weight loss and conditioning.

But listen please.

The best place to start in the pursuit of the “perfect body” is understanding that you’re perfect already. Your body is an incredible machine with a high capacity to heal and be moulded into a tool for action accomplishing incredible things (dance, martial arts, gymnastics, climbing, swimming – you name it). It can also be moulded into any level of fitness and beauty you desire. Muscles can be grown and suddenly appear, fat can disappear. Miraculously without you even realising it, particularly when you live the martial way. It’s up to you!

You can work on it, refine it, focusing on process not product. This keeps you enjoying the ride and not giving up because you’re worried about the destination.

Think of your body in whatever state it’s in, as a beautiful slab of marble , obsidian? Pick any beautiful stone alright I’m not being prejudiced . All of that marble is beautiful and valuable right? Even though the intention of the sculptor is to chip away at it and create a certain image. Refine it.

See it as a process. And accept that the raw material you have to work with is already gorgeous. No one generally looks for a pile of shit and thinks. Yes. I want to turn this into a sculpture. You’re not turning something ugly into something beautiful. You’re turning something beautiful into something different and potentially more beautiful.

Begin with self love and your motivation will be positive, inspiring and self perpetuating.

As always I would love to hear your thoughts on this topic. See you later you walking works of art 😉
