The notion that fasted cardio is better at burning body fat has been thrown around for a few years now. The thought process When you perform cardio in a fasted state, your body’s glycogen levels are low so your body has to use body fat for energy rather than food. The research Fasted cardio can oxidize more body fat during exercise, however it is balanced out by burning less fat during the rest of the day. If you eat first you may burn less fat during cardio but you will burn more after. The bottom line Fat loss is determined by CALORIE DEFICIT, fasted cardio will provide no additional benefits in terms of burning body fat! #fatloss #fastedcardio #fatburningworkout #fatburn #fatburner #weightloss #cardio #cardioworkout #fitnesslife #caloriedeficit #caloriesburned

Part 4 - Jumping pull ups So yesterday we brought you different grip variations to focus on. In this part we will be using those grips for a jumping pull up. Use your jump and new found strength to jump and pull through the movement. Start with one and aim to get to 3, then 5 and so on. Remember slow lowers on the last rep of each grip variation. Good luck and happy pulling! #pulluptime #pullupsfordays #jumpingpullups #jump #fitnessinspo #fitfam #fitlife #inspo #fitspo #fitnessfreaks #newchallenges

Pull ups are all about having big muscles...right? Not necessarily. The heavier you are the more work it requires to do a pull up. Secondly the longer your arms, the greater distance you have to pull your mass. Lastly, Gravity plays a huge role in your ability to do a pull up, you need the ability to overcome it! No matter your height, mass or ability everybody is capable of a pull up, It is just a matter of physics! #pullupproblems #justphysics #physics #biomechanics #pullup #pullupsfordays #fitspo #motivation #fitfam #fitnesspro #biomechanist #humanmovement

Many people think the pull up is all about big biceps and pulling with your arms. The primary mover in the pull up is actually your latissimus dorsi along with 22 other muscles including your pecs, deltoids, upper back muscles, arms, forearms and your core! Not so simple, is it? #movementpatterns #biomechanics #simpleexercise #notsosimple #pulluptraining #pullups #anatomy #humananatomy #fitspo #motivation #fitnessjourney

Part 1 - The hold! As promised we will be talking all things pull ups this week. We are going to start with a really simple way to get you on the road to a full pull up. People often use assistance, bands or even their training partner on a pull up. We are not going to use any of those. We are going to use gravity and your bodyweight. Start with the static hold, 15-20 seconds. Practice until you can comfortably hold the position. Then when you are ready move on to a slow lower, at least 5 seconds. Practice, practice, practice! Part 2 coming tomorrow! #pullups #pullupsfordays #pulluppractice #pullday #pullworkout #pullupmaster #manchester #personaltrainer #camerashy #fitnesslife #fitnessmotivation #fitfam

Most people that have taken part in any form of exercise will at some point be guilty of overtraining. When you get into a good routine and start to see the benefits of exercise it is difficult to stop and take a rest. You want to keep going but it’s not always the best for your body. There are several warning signs you are overtraining and need to take a break: - [ ] Tired, drained or a lack of energy - [ ] Mild aches and pains - [ ] Sudden drops in performance - [ ] Insomnia - [ ] Headaches - [ ] Decreased immunity If these apply then maybe it’s time for a rest day or time to drop in and see us for a recovery massage. #restday #overtraining #restandrelaxation #trainsmart #painfree #chill #chillmode #recoverymassage #sportsmassage #sportstherapy

We often get asked by clients how it is, that personal trainers make pull ups look so easy at times. Simple answer is practice, but, doing other exercises and breaking the pull up into stages can help. Next week we will be running through everything pull up. From benefits to progressions, so look out for our daily post! #pullups #pull #pullupmasterclass #masterthepullup #pullworkout #backexercises #onlinetrainer #personaltrainer #fitnessaddicts #fitspo #fitfam

We know the British are world famous for saying sorry, even when we are not at fault, but our studio is not the place for that! If you try an exercise and can’t do it, lift a weight and it won’t move or your technique isn’t as good as you would like, don’t apologise. You tried, it didn’t work, but next time you will do better #noapologies #sorrynotsorry #fitnessrules #gymetiquette #trainhard #trainsmart #fit #fitlife #manchester #northernquarter #personaltrainer
