Why your lower back hurts…

 

One of the reasons why your lower back hurts…

The glutes, we all have them, some people have great ones, others not so much. But did you know that if yours are weak or inactive this could be the reason why you have lower back pain.

The glutes are responsible for stabilising the pelvis with pretty much every movement you do. Walking, going up stairs, picking things up and standing to name a few.

However, if the glutes are weak or inactive then they can’t hold your pelvis in the right position which can lead to increased stress and load on the lower back as it becomes over worked. Why?

Sitting is the new smoking

Well to be quite frank we sit on our arse way too much. Either behind a desk at work, driving, or when we get home for the evening. When we sit we put the hips into a forward tilted position, which causes the hip flexors to shorten and thus tighten over time, essentially switching off. At the same time this will cause the glutes to lengthen which cause the fibres to weaken and deactivate / switch off, this is known as reciprocal inhibition.

Think of it like this

When the bicep is flexed the tricep is unflexed and vice versa, over time being in one position over another for long periods of time will cause the opposite muscle to become weak.

With regards to the glutes this can have a significant effect on your posture. Without being able to stabilise the pelvis coupled with rounded shoulders, you will constantly be in an anterior pull when performing daily tasks. Because of this the lower back has to jack up in order to keep our centre of mass balanced and you on your feet.

As of yet our bodies haven’t evolved enough to adapt to our current lazy lifestyles, so in order to stay mobile, function efficiently and avoid pain and injury, we need to exercise to get these muscles working again.

How to fix your back issues

The human body is highly adaptable and by using the right activation drills and workout exercises, overtime you can fix these issues. Trust me I did it.

The video below is just a basic 3 minute activation drill you can do before training your lower body. It involves using 2 resistance bands as shown with one placed around the lower thigh and one around the ankle.

Process:

  • You are to separate your legs to create tension in the bands.
  • From here perform 5-10 glute bridges driving your pelvis up to the ceiling contracting the glutes hard at the top without allowing the pelvis to go into extension.
  • After this you should now perform a clam, again 5-10 reps per side separating the knees, keeping the ankles together, feeling the tension in the outer glute. (External rotation of the hip)
  • Next, do a reverse clam, keeping the knees together and separating the ankles, for most of you this will feel weird.
  • Once you have completed this circuit both sides jump up into an athletic position and set your pelvis in neutral. Again separating the the legs to create tension, (don’t allow the knees to collapse in) perform 5 very small lateral steps, repeat the other way and then work forwards for 5 steps and finally backwards.

By this point you should begin to feel the glutes burning.  Typically I would perform this after a mobility warm up and then repeat it either in between lower body exercises or again at the half way stage during your sessions.

Remember though this isn’t an actual exercise, it’s an activation drill only. You must add overload in order to really strengthen the glutes and by this I mean lift some fucking weight.

Let me know how you go if you use this circuit 👍 Enjoy!

Why strength training is the best exercise for the over 40’s

 

The Importance of Strength Training in Later Years (40+)

It’s not easy accepting the fact that you’re getting older, however, if you were under the impression that you are past your prime, you would be sorely mistaken. In fact, you have the potential to transform your life for the better and achieve new goals regarding strength, and fitness in general.

You only need the right set of tools for the job and the willingness to persevere under the changing circumstances, all the while optimising your training routine to maximise results according to your age and aspirations. The possibilities for growth are endless, so here is why strength training after 40 is important for men and women alike.

Build and retain muscle mass

The more you age, the more lean muscle mass becomes important for your overall health, vibrancy, and well-being. Not only does strength training promote muscle growth, but anaerobic training has been proven to effectively burn calories, sometimes even more than regular, steady-state cardio.

Because muscle mass is not energy-efficient, meaning your body needs to consume more calories to maintain it, you will be burning through calories at an increased rate. This leads to a lean, more toned physique in the long run. What’s more, increasing muscle mass is advisable for men and women alike, as it will make the existing fat spread more evenly across your frame, leading to an aesthetically pleasing result.

Balanced hormone production

To all the men out there, strength training can literally save your long-term health and spike testosterone production. After you hit that 30-year mark, your natural testosterone levels start to slowly dip, leading over the years to numerous health complications, and simply making you feel and act older than you should.

The degenerative condition leading to a loss of skeletal and muscle mass quality is called sarcopenia, and while it is only natural to be affected by it as you age, it doesn’t mean that you can’t fight its effects for a healthier, stronger lifestyle. Unfortunately, sarcopenia affects men and women alike, with regular strength training being one of the only effective long-term solutions for staying strong, healthy, and vibrant in your later years.

Weight training supports healthy hormone production in men and women alike, helping you retain your youthful glow, build lean muscle mass, and sculpt an enviable physique.

Minimise injury risks and become sturdier

As the years go by, the risks of injuring yourself rise exponentially. While many adults over 40 will opt for a more “gracious” sport such as yoga or Pilates, it is strength training that will actually help you build a strong, sturdy frame that will safeguard you from accidents and injury.

Strength training targets your muscle and connective tissue, and more importantly, your central nervous system, builds bone density and dexterity, and makes you more resilient overall. A sound training program based on strength gain will help you strengthen your lower back and your core, improving your posture. Moreover, you will be strengthening the rotator cuffs in your shoulders, and by performing squats and deadlifts regularly, you will strengthen your hips and your glutes as well, which are some of the weakest areas in older adults.

Remain mobile and flexible

Contrary to popular belief, strength training will not ruin your mobility and flexibility. In fact, by exercising a proper range of motions under load continuously, you will be able to improve your mobility and safeguard your joint health. This means that your knees, hips, wrists, elbows, and shoulders will be able to move properly without any pain.

Couple your strength routine with short pre and post-workout mobility and flexibility routines and you will have no problem keeping muscle soreness at bay and recovering just in time for the next training session. As the years advance, maintaining adequate mobility and joint health will be increasingly important, and strength training will help you achieve just that.

Strength is never a weakness

Finally, while other sports might emphasise one body part over the other, increase the overall risk of injury, or simply be less effective in building a sculpted physique and a healthy lifestyle, strength training is the one sport that will ensure your body stays young, healthy, and vibrant.

Implementing strength training into your weekly regime with a clear goal in mind and the help of a trustworthy personal trainer will allow you to enjoy life to the fullest and take what you have learned and gained in the gym into the real world. Weight training translates into real-life scenarios, and no matter if you’re running with your dog or playing rugby with your son, you are bound to give a hell of a fight worthy of a twenty-year-old.

Strength is never a weakness. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to build functional strength, and while you should always exercise caution and safety during training, you can rest assured that the rewards will be great. With these essential benefits in mind, you will have no problem building an enviable, powerful physique regardless of your age.

Transform your body, transform your mind.

Does stress hamper fat loss?

Stress: a slight dose of it helps you kick ass by boosting energy, alertness, and productivity. But suffering high stress daily? That can seriously mess with your mind and body.

Not only does it increase your risk of contracting many diseases, but it also drains your energy, your desire to work out and eat healthily, and your libido. Besides, chronic stress is often claimed to hamper fat loss. But is that true?

In this article, you’ll discover the evidence-based truth about how stress affects fat loss. You’ll also learn three powerful tips that help you shed excess pounds. Let’s dive in!

Does Stress Hamper Fat Loss?

It’s often claimed that stress causes fat gain, in particular around the midsection. This belief evolved in 1999 when researchers found that men with higher stress levels tend to carry more belly fat [1]. As a result, the media and fitness “experts” started to spread the “scientific proof” that stress causes fat gain.

The problem? The study looked at whether there was a correlation between stress and body fat – which was the case. However, just because two variables are correlated does not mean that one causes the other. In fact, stress actually increases fat burning. Here’s why:

Stress Actually Boosts Fat Burning

The reason is that stress has a catabolic effect on your body. This means it aids in breaking down molecules for fuel, such as body fat.

For example, in one study hydrocortisone – a pharmaceutical form of the stress hormone cortisol – was infused into a group of healthy young males [2]. As a result, the men burned more fat for fuel.

But Here’s the Problem!

Even though stress aids fat burning, there are three ways in which chronic stress indirectly wreaks havoc on your figure and fat loss efforts. This may sound contradictory, so let me explain.

First off, stress raises appetite. This is particularly the case for sweet foods such as chocolate and desserts. I think we can all relate to this: if you’re stressed, it’s tempting to reach for junk food to feel better.

The problem? This increased food intake will undo the smidge of extra fat the stress hormone has you burn. Hence, stress may cause you to overeat hundreds if not thousands of extra calories, which can erase your fat loss efforts of the previous days if not weeks.

Second, chronic stress causes muscle loss. Why’s that? Because stress acts catabolically: it not only aids in breaking down fat, but also muscle mass. This is something that must be avoided when you want to shape an eye-catching figure.

Third, chronic stress causes water retention. As a result, the number on your scale might rise, giving the false impression you’ve gained fat, even though it’s just water. Such water retention also “softens” your appearance, making you look fatter than you really are.

Here’s What to Do

Keeping stress in check is essential to shaping an eye-catching body. So, whether you have 99 problems or just a handful of them, here are three tips to prevent stress from wreaking havoc on your figure.

#1:

First off, avoid stress-related eating such as reaching for a chocolate bar when you feel frazzled. Often, such behaviour is tied to a specific event. An example is reaching for a chocolate bar when you’re overloaded with work.

The best way to prevent such stress-related eating is by eliminating the trigger. So, let’s say you tend to reach for chocolate when you’re overloaded with work, improving your planning skills or outsourcing tedious tasks will decrease the likelihood that you will feel strained.

If you can’t drop the trigger, find an alternative way to cope with it. For example, instead of reaching for chocolate when you feel weighed down, focus for a minute on your breath. You’ll find that stress goes down and that it will be easier to deal with the situation.

Another powerful technique is the five-minute rule. Before you give in to the urge, wait for five minutes. During this time, reflect on how you feel, revisit your fitness goals, and evaluate whether short-term gratification is worth imperilling your long-term desires. Most likely, the cravings will wane in strength or even go away entirely.

#2:

Second, get enough sleep, as sleep deprivation increases stress levels in your body. While the optimal amount varies among individuals, aim for at least seven hours each night. It’s best to get those hours at the same interval daily, as irregular sleeping patterns elevate cortisol.

Getting enough sleep also boosts willpower, making it easier to resist the temptation of indulging in “comfort foods” such as chocolate or doughnuts during times of stress.

#3:

Third, take time to relax. Whether in the form of meditation, deep breathing exercises, yoga, walking, listening to music, or something else – plan at least one moment in your day during which you can unwind.

Use these tips to keep your stress levels low and improve your success of shedding those bothersome excess pounds of fat.

 

Transform your body, transform your mind.

How to lose belly fat to reveal abs?

 

Want to lose belly fat fast to start seeing those abs?

  • Are you confused as how to lose that stubborn fat around your waist?
  • Frustrated at the lack of progress given the effort you put in?
  • Have you read conflicting information about the best training plans and diet to lose belly fat: HIIT? Increased cardio? Low carb? Low calorie? 

It’s a confusing web of information out there, I totally understand how frustrating it must be to not have clear and accurate information for an issue such as losing belly fat, so hopefully this blog I’ve written will clarify things for you.

Targeted Fat Loss: Myth or Reality?

Can you burn fat from your belly alone?

In short…no!

There is no scientifically proven way to burn fat in particular areas of the body, no amount of sit-ups or abdominal workouts will help lose the fat in this area alone to reveal your abs underneath.

When fat cells are broken down to be used for energy they will be taken from anywhere in the body during exercise. There is no biological way to ensure that only fat cells from the belly area are utilised.

In recent years a study was conducted to investigate the effect of abdominal exercises on abdominal fat, the study took 24 participants who each partook in regular abdominal exercises whilst maintaining a healthy balanced diet. After 6 weeks there was no significant effect of abdominal exercises reducing fat in the belly area, or overall body fat percentage.

The products you see on shopping channels which claim to target these areas to deliver you great looking abs fast, i’m afraid to say are a complete waste of your time and money.

So how do you reveal those abs?

Firstly it’s important to have a basic understanding of how your body burns fat.

In it’s simplest form; fat loss is determined by the amount of calories you consume vs the amount of calories you burn. If you consume less calories than you burn it will result in fat loss.

What about low carb diets for fat loss?

We all know that food is fuel for our body. And like cars using either petrol or diesel, our body can utilise different fuels being either carbs or fat. It’s true if you consume a low carb diet your body will turn to fat as it’s energy source. However! This isn’t a good long term sustainable system for fat loss and can have detrimental effects on your health as the body ‘needs’ both carbs and fat in the body for optimal health.

A good fat loss program will ensure you are consuming the correct amounts of carbs, fats and proteins keeping the body in a metabolically flexible state meaning the body will have the ability to switch from one fuel source to the next; from fats to carbs and carbs to fat. When executed correctly, you’ll have the ability to lose fat on either a high carb or low carb diet depending on how many calories you consume.

So now we know how fat is burned, how do we lose it from the belly area?

The only way you will be able to lose belly fat is to participate in a quality full body training and nutrition program, designed specifically to burn fat in a sustainable way, which will see you lose fat from ‘all’ areas of your body including the belly area.

By doing a plan such as the ART 12 week body transformation program we’ll take you through a series of nutritional phases designed to keep the body in a metabolically flexible state, coupled with a predominately strength training regime with limited cardio, you’ll be burning fat while building lean muscle mass, which over time will lead to a visible reduction of fat in the belly area revealing your already existing ab muscles underneath.

“Over the last two years, a lot has happened in my life that made me take my eye of the health and fitness ball. At the beginning of the year I started a new job, had a baby and planned to do a loft conversion all at the same time. I know right…madness! It all got a bit much for me and so I stupidly turned to wine, beer and generous helpings of fast food and cake to sooth my stress and anxiety. That was, as I knew at the time, not the best idea and as a result I bloated physically and mentally I was feeling depressed, lethargic and generally down and out.

I knew I needed to sort my selfout which is when I started to look for inspiration on Instagram. I stumbled across one of Olly’s transformation pictures and I thought I’d investigate some more. Within the 10 minutes of clicking the Instagram link to the ART home page I found that I had bought the programme and sat there in a little shock thinking ‘What the hell have I just signed up for?!’.

Let me tell you this right now: Best impulse purchase of my entire life.

I’m so happy with the physical results, but I’m even more happy about the way I feel mentally. I feel free of the stress and anxiety. I feel fresh and energetic. I get up in the morning and I feel ready to go and get on with my life. I’m more focused at work, I have more energy with my family and I’m so much more positive and happy. It’s the best feeling!

The ART programme is fantastic, it’s hard yes, but it’s rewarding in so many different ways. The food and recipes that Olly suggests are so so good that it got me excited about food for the first time in my life Looking forward to coming home to cook something new and different has been fun and I found that cooking it with my partner has given us something to do together when we get home, we both love it…its like Master chef in our flat at the moment!

The support Olly and Kim give you is amazing, always there and always answer questions no matter how stupid you feel the question is. The encouragement and support to get you to where you want to be is fantastic and to top it off, the Facebook community group of people going through the training with you is excellent.

I can’t thank Olly and Kim enough for this programme. Its changed my life, its changed my body into something that I thought I’d never have (Chuffed!) but most importantly it’s helped my mental health.

If you’re reading this and you’re in two minds as to whether you should do this or not. Do it. Believe me. Best thing you’ll ever do! ”

“Anyone umming and ahhing about whether to take the leap with ART, I’m telling you now – DO IT. It’s a no brainer.

Having spent a month in France for work during Euro 2016, I came back, shall we say, out of shape. A month eating croissants and pain au chocolates can do that to you. That’s when I came across the ART 12 week programme. I can safely say it’s one of the best decisions I’ve made. It’s gruelling, yes. Mentally and physically. But the results are fantastic. I couldn’t be happier. There were some bumps along the way, but I’m glad I persevered.”

CARL

“I researched numerous programmes on the internet prior to picking Olly’s programme, my main decisions were based around, this was predominately a weight based programme, I have never been a huge fan of cardio and I could see the results he was getting on his website.

I have always ate reasonably healthy, however this programme has totally changed my diet, I have gained so much knowledge on nutrition and with regards to the food I am eating, I can honestly say I prefer it.  I have noticed improvements not only in my body fat and muscle mass but in my skin and mood.

One of the best things with this programme is you actually deal with Olly himself, not a member of his staff and when I found a week particularly hard he listened and changed the programme accordingly.  With all this said, it is hard but I am extremely pleased with the results and the hard work was definitely worth it.”

“I first heard of Olly through Up Fitness and have always been impressed with his approach & the results he has achieved with his clients. I always think it is important to work with someone who practices what they preach and when you look at Olly’s track record i think it’s fair to say he does exactly that.

I took on the ART programme during the Chrismas period which for myself always coincides with when I lose focus particularly with my diet. I was delighted with the outcome of the programme & the results I achieved. Olly is always on hand to answer your questions & give encouragement.

For me I have always thrived on accountability and this is what this programme offers. The Facebook forum is a fantastic tool which allows you to reach out to others whether it be support or just general banter.

Great programme, top lad. Thanks Olly. ”

How to choose the right fitness program for you?

You get what you pay for…

In this day and age this old saying still holds value and as the fitness industry continues to boom I’m here to warn you that this saying is more important than ever.

With the recent Black Friday and Christmas discount deals I’m amazed how some trainers are able to discount their services by 30% and more. Granted we at ART ran a discount of 15%, which on reflection was perhaps too great as our current cost is on point for the service we provide.

Now don’t get me wrong, my goal and passion is to help people achieve the body they desire, however it’s vital that I’m able to place value my time and experience and cover our overheads such as the systems we use and the great staff we have to make sure the business runs smooth, efficient and effectively as possible for a positive client experience.

“We are by no means the cheapest online product on the market but I know we are worth every penny.” 

When trainers are able to sell online plans at such ridiculously low prices do you really think the program is right for you?

Do you also think that you will be dealing directly with the face who fronts the plan?

I’m sorry to say that in almost all cases it won’t be the right plan for you and and you won’t be dealing with the face who fronts the plan.

Personalisation is key

When it comes to fitness and especially nutrition, in order for it to be successful and maintainable, the plan has to be bespoke to a certain degree. It’s important that the trainer for example sees your current stats and knows your activity level, knows of any medical issues or health concerns before they are able to set you a starting calorific intake. This intake would also need to be continually adjusted in order to get the best out of you.

Training plans themselves can be a little more generic but must have scope for alternations based on the client. The client may not have all the equipment in their gym that is required, they may have an injury or they simply may not feel comfortable doing a particular exercise. Therefore you should be able to email or contact the trainer to address these concerns and have suitable changes made.

It’s unlikely that a program selling for £100 or less can factor in all these requirements. The amount of time and dedication needed to communicate with clients would mean they would be working for less than the minimum wage so something is clearly a miss.

Quality time online with your trainer is needed

Now I’m not trying to badmouth any fellow competitors here directly, I’m just bemused how they can offer such services without it being a generic cookie cutter plan. I’ve been in this industry a long time, more than most, and I know the level of time needed with each client directly to get the best out of them in the healthiest manner possible with the confidence that I’m educating them at the same time.

This is why here at ART we keep things on a relatively small scale in order to make sure every client gets or has the access to the same level of service throughout. We were recently very open and honest as to why we needed to put our prices back up, which is all related to providing the best online 1-1 personal training service in the UK.

Beware of scammers

So please take all this into consideration when looking to sign up to an online program. There are some fantastic, valuable services out there, which can genuinely help you as an individual, however there are also more and more scam artists who are too keen to take your money and provide you with some crap that might work with 1 in 20 people. I’m not keen on those odds so I know what I would be doing.

Do your research; ask some questions and then make an informed decision based on the response you receive.

“I would like to thank Olly and the team from the bottom of my heart.

I have trained on and off for many years but since I transferred to a desk based job I’ve seen my body fat percentage slowly creep up.
I’m 45 now and just got divorced, I thought it was time to put myself first for once in my life.
Olly’s way of training was slightly different to how I’d trained over the years, I bit more intense but not too intense. The diet was easy to follow and I rarely felt hungry.I quickly started to see results and this inspired me further to follow the plan.
It really is simple if you are willing to trust Olly’s advice. Follow the exercise plan and the dietary advice and you can’t go wrong. Olly and the team respond quickly to any enquiries you make and the Action Reaction Facebook group provides a valuable source of advice and peer support. Everyone is working towards the same goal and hence they are very supportive and friendly. My results speak for themselves.
I highly recommend the program to anyone wanting to make a change to their life and appearance.
Stick to the plan and follow Olly’s instructions, don’t cheat as you only end up cheating yourself. It’s a short small sacrifice in your life for a massive impact. ”
