Are You Going To Heavy To Soon?

DSC08909

Kettlebells – Sydney Kettlebell School of Strength For Women

The purpose of a strength program is to progress not regress.

If you start with a Kettlebell and finding you are needing to go lighter and lighter again to complete the required reps and sets – you are going to heavy to soon.

Start with a Kettlebell weight you can safely perform the entire rep and set range with. Master form and progress your weight accordingly.

You can’t rush strength. Try and it will only lead to injury.

Keep Safe. Good Kettlebelling.

3 Tips For Maintaining Your Health All Year Round

8901_10151612364569831_1294763055_n

Tania Poletti – Sydney Kettlebell School of Strength For Women

I read this headline this morning – “summer is coming, want some fat loss tips?”

These types of headlines are directed to send folk into a mad panic about how they are going to look in their bikini and budgie smugglers on the beach over summer. Good folk like yourselves read this and go into meltdown focusing on the layer of body fat, cellulite and body hair that has some how consumed your body. Yes it’s headlines like these that plant the “body beautiful” seed and before you know it you’re out their buying into weightloss programs and spending $$$ on weightloss products “for a summer body”.

Folks – why is it that we only begin to think about the way we “look” when summer is coming? The headlines above come from “professionals” in the health industry who’s job is to educate you folk on how to look after your bodies and minds “all year round” not set you into panic about being to “fat” for your bikini.

So today as a Health Professional I bring you the right message…

Folks – your health, it doesn’t know if it’s summer, autumn winter or spring. Body fat is body fat and cellulite is cellulite – the long term impact of not looking after yourself (lack of exercise and poor nutrition) doesn’t automatically get better or worse with the change of the seasons.

I, Tania Poletti – Founder of Sydney Kettlebell School of Strength for Women “maintain” a six pack all year around and have folk say to me “you must be super fit”. My response is always this – I look after “my health” all year around. I am consistent with my training (active daily) and I eat to nourish my body everyday because it makes me feel good. I write plans for folk showing them exactly how they too can take on this lifestyle but they don’t believe how easy it is to maintain a healthy “in shape” mind and body.

Exercise and nutrition serve more than just the purpose of looking good in your bikini in summer (think old age). Winter if any session is the one you really you should be focusing on. If you are not nourishing your body and exercising to keep your immune system strong all year round – come winter (right now) you are going to get smashed by colds, flus and all the nasty bugs floating around in the air. Imagine focusing on “your health” rather that “how you look” – a little bit of exercise everyday, eating to nourish your body – all year round. Think of the savings you’d make on weight loss products. Summer in Bali – here you go…

3 Tips For Maintaining Your Health All Year Round

1. MOVE DAILY  Don your training kit and training shoes daily and get 10 – 60 minutes of physical activity in your day. There is no right or wrong time to do it – do it at a time that best fits your schedule but – just do it. If you struggle for motivation we have a range of services to help you get on track with your exercise contact us

2. EAT TO NOURISH Understand food serves a greater purpose than just eating because it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner time. The food you put in your mouth is what runs your body at “cellular level”. Think about your car, if you put the wrong fuel in your car what happens to your car? it doesn’t run properly and well in actual fact if you put the wrong fuel in your car now days you can blow the thing up. This oddly enough is much like our bodies. Fuel it long enough with the wrong food you’ll kill your body! Avoid slow death by food by fueling your body with foods high in vitamins and minerals.

Lose the “salad” is weightloss food, it isn’t. Lean meat, fruit and veg are essential foods that must be consumed on a daily basis.

In a nutshell – eat less of what you now eat more of (takeaway, soft drink, conveniece foods) and eat more of what you eat less of (lean meat, fruit and veg). If you need help with nutrition we have a qualified nutritionist on stand by who is at the ready to help you get on track with your eating contact us

3. FOCUS ON YOUR HEALTH Believe it or not when you focus on exercising and eating for your health the body naturally takes care of itself. Yes, it’s true and again use myself as a walking living breathing example of such way of life. When I train I train to challenge myself – I set competitions with myself. When I run I run with purpose to better my previous effort. For example I’ve a 3km circuit. When I run – every Tuesday my aim is to better my last weeks effort. This way I am always improving myself, it give me a purpose when I train and my health benefits immensely as each week I work to without even focusing on it – increase my cardiovascular conditioning.

Same when I train Kettlebells – I go with the intent of lifting more volume and greater weight. I never train with the intention of a six pack or to lose weight. The stronger I get the more my body changes – leaner and more defined but this is not because I am trying to achieve this – it comes secondary as the result of getting stronger and preparing my body for old age.

When you focus on training to get physically fitter and stronger – the body naturally takes care of itself.

How do you maintain your health all year round?
