Easy Ways To Lose Weight And Burn Fat For The Summer

I came accross this quote only today . . I don’t know how i missed it. . it’s quality. .

‘If they can make penicillin out of mouldy bread, they can sure make something out of you.’ – Mohammad Ali

That means YOU

That means YOU

I thought I’d put that there 1st just to spur you on. .

Did it work? Good. .

You see lately i have been hearing a lot of negativity and dismay among trainees, not just in Northwood, but on twitter, facebook, and just listening to general conversation in Dublin. . oh and lets not forget The Biggest Loser. . . what a load of C**p ๐Ÿ™‚

Weight loss, fitness and getting a beach body seems to be on everyones agenda’s but surprise surprise nobody is doing anything about it. Each and every person that i encounter thinks it is too late now;

‘It’s summer already, i cant lose the fat now’

Its too late, its May already, maybe next year’

I’m sorry to tell you but thats a loada crap. . I’ll refer to Ali’s Quote above. . its never too late and your NOT different. You too can lose that stubborn bellyfat. . . on that note. .

A member ofMy Athletic Body Space recently told me;

‘But its hard for me to lose fat, and I lose muscle easily’

I was actually a little understanding and compassionate until i looked at his food diary on the WEB SITE . . bread sticks, ‘just a little’ cereal and ‘seeded bread’ frequented the menu. . lets just say the ensuing message was not friendly ๐Ÿ™‚

Let’s be honest; It’s only May, you can make a lot of progress in a couple of weeks, even if your holiday is in June or July, there’s still time. . you know what your doing? Making big, fat, hairy, lazy excuses. . That’s right . . I’m not going to sugar coat it. .

On that note i would like to make a blatant sales pitch. .

Theres still time for you to burn that last bit of fat for summer. . its only May. I know our friends across the water celebrated ‘Memorial Day’ yesterday so we’ve decided to make a silly -belated- offer. .

We have (well Ian did) repackaged abs and i think it will suit some people down to the ground.We literally took the ‘Fat Loss Pathway’ Out of Athletic Body System and Made ABS for Fat Loss

This is especially for people who just want a quick fix and a no BS route to fatloss.

You dont want to read through 100’s of pages of information, you just want the workouts. . good old fashioned effective workouts. . well I have just the thing.

Irish Doing Thai Boxing . . Random Physical Punishment Continued. . .

So the last post was about building muscle and burning fat. . i got a few emails in response . . it was okay. . i got more personal emails asking for videos of the torturous ‘Magic Hundred Workout’ than i ever got from this Blog. .

I have a feeling you just want to see me inflict pain on myself you sickos haha

So last week i was crawling up a beach completing a challenge the sadist Dax Moy had set for us all in our Thailand Camp. . .

This week I decided to take it easy . . We just had a hard weeks work here in Thailand so I thought some R&R might do me good. . I got wind of a vacancy in a thai boxing camp about an hours drive from the airport. .

Long Story short I’m here now and im in pain ๐Ÿ™‚

Dumb Hole On The Left

Dumb Hole On The Right

. .

Had my first thai boxing session this morning, It was good crack. . .there is a lump on my shin the size of an egg though. .maybe kicking a thai guys elbow when doing padwork isnt the way forward. . hmm

. . .

Session went as follows

0725-0750 –

5-7km run (i hate running. .but how do you explain that in cardio is a waste of time in thai?)

. . .

0750-0805 –

Skippingย  (constantly . . none of this girly 6x 3 min rounds shite. . oh did i mention the ‘rope was weighted cable. . not your usual reebok speed rope. . forearms were killing haha)

. . .

0805 – 0815 –

Wrap hands and warm up/stretch (last time i kicked was xmas so i needed this ha)

0815 – 0840 –

Kick bag. . (7 x 3minute rounds with push ups for the whole rest period. . oh the guy stood beside me shouting at me the whole time which made it particularly enjoyable)

. . .

0840 – 0915 –

Pad work. . high tempo kicking and punching drills (emphasis on power) then push ups between rounds. . im convinced he was picking on me. .nobody else had over a half hour on the pads. . i felt like a was swinging a rope at the pads by the end of it. . . grrr

so . . . many. . . push ups. . . ha(i enjoyed it really)

. . .

0915-0930 –

3x 3min rounds just constantly doing front push kicks alternating feet with no rest. . you have to kick the back on the way back (against the swing) each time and NO stopping or you get abused in thai. .

. . .

0930-0940 –

200 crunches,minute break + 150 crunches,minute break + 100 crunches. .

Again if I see people doing crunches in the gym im like

‘duhhh dont you know they’re bad for your spine’. .

. .

But I reiterate. . how do you tell a thai trainer that ‘your abs aren’t made to flex your spine they are made to prevent hyperextension’

Whats thai for hyperextension again i forget ๐Ÿ™‚

. . .


Pictures and retire to you room to recover. .

There are a few guys from Melbourne here too. .

Guy 3rd from the right in the back row is a crazy Estonian machine. .

Will update tomorrow after sparring.

Lose Fat, Gain Muscle. . ‘Can I Gain Muscle And Lose Fat At The Same Time?’

During my time in Northwood Health and Fitness in Santry i have worked with a LOT of people.

I tend to attract questions, left, right and center people question me on one topic or another.

. . .

I wouldn’t mind if I looked particularly intelligent . . i look like a bit of a meat head. . im loud and ‘playfully’ aggressive ๐Ÿ™‚

But still they come, questions, questions and more questions. Its great (except for when I’m training then it gets kind of annoying!)

. . .

Some for weight loss

Some have trouble area’s they want to address

Injuries and rehabilitation

Nutrition advice

. . .

The above questions are easy enough to address. . simple lifestyle adaptations. . sorted!

The worst group of people are the men in their late teens to mid 20’s looking to put on muscle. . they ask the same thing every time!

. . .

‘I want to put on muscle, but first I’m going to eat less and lose the fat first,THEN get a good weight gainer protein shake and bulk up’

. . .

Oh dear, this is when the alarm bells go off!

The concept of losing fat first by eating less and performing aerobic activity to lose fat

and then

Eating excess calories and taking weight gainers to put on weight . . ? Oh dear!


Is this you?

Do you think you have to lose fat and gain muscle at different times?

. . .

Then you have the opposite. . The crowd that are constantly in a state of confused bulking and cutting, their weight fluctuates all over the place and they cant really assess their progress because they are basically fat and cant ‘see’ any visual differences.

Do you have to ‘Bulk’ up by training hard and eating lots of calories and protein and then ‘Cut’ back on calories and strip the fat at separate times?

. .

Is that really necessary?

Personally i think it works GREAT! For a small percentage of people.

But think about this for a moment. . how many fat bodybuilders do you know? I don’t mean out of season competitive bodybuilders, i mean the ones that are constantly ‘bulking’ and ‘massing’ and they try to cut for a month and because the scales starts to go down below 200lbs/90kg they get freaked out and go back on a ‘Bulk’ and get even fatter.

I’m just venting here but i think you get my point. . i have no doubt it works for some people but it seems a little contradictory to me for most people with average genetics and body types.
