Posture Part 2

Aug 20, 2014

Category: Other

Before I get going here I highly recommend that you first go back and have a read over ‘Posture Part 1’ were I discuss the type of posture that is very common in a society were we sit a lot more and move heck of a lot less than we used to. Nowadays more and more people are presenting with the rounded upper back and slouched shoulders look which goes hand in hand with the problematic forward head p…

Posture Part 1

Jun 13, 2014

Category: Other

Do you find yourself having annoying neck pain, shoulder pain or the ever so common low back pain? The list of pains and aches really goes on and on. Before I go on I will be sneaky and quickly plug my 1 hour ‘stretch/mobility/postural correction’ class that I hold every Tuesday evening and Sunday morning (ask our friendly staff for more details if interested!). Now let’s get on with the article. …

This past year I have really enjoyed using the maximal, sub-maximal method of training for the main compound lifts (squat, bench, deadlift). Combining both maximal and sub maximal training essentially means that you go heavy one day of the week on the squat, bench and deadlift and then a few days later you have a lighter day. The focus on the heavy day is to set some kind of personal best and typi…

LADIES pay attention! Weight training or strength training holds many benefits and for women especially. Lifting heavy weights, not 1 or 2 KG weights, is not just for men and bodybuilders. There are several health benefits that women should take note of when it comes to lifting weights. And when we talk about heavy weights, heavy is all relative to the individual on their body weight, frame and a…

To Diet Or Not To Diet

Feb 20, 2014

Category: Healthy Eating

To diet or not to diet. What does the word diet mean to you? The Oxford Dictionary gives two different versions of the Noun ‘diet.’ The first is ‘the kinds of food that a person, animal or community habitually eats.’ And the second is ‘a special course of food to which a person restricts themselves, either to lose weight or for medical reason.’ I personally see the word diet within the first defi…

I came across an interesting article last week regarding gyms. It was written about gyms in America, however, but I still found it very interesting and a little disturbing as to the perception of gyms and how we are just money making machines. The article gave you 10 things that gyms (based on America) will not tell you when you sign up. The first point was the worst; a gym may not be prepared if…

Goal Setting

Jan 09, 2014

Category: Goals

So it's that time of year again where New Year's Resolutions are made. How many of you still make New Year's Resolutions and more importantly, how many of you will keep these resolutions that you made this year? And what makes a good resolution, one that you actually stick to? And why do we feel the need to make New Year's Resolutions? New year, new goals I am assuming? For me, New Year's Resolut…

So, we all have those days when we just really cannot be bothered to go to the gym. Even washing the car is more 'important' at that point in time than getting in a workout. Any excuse will do! But what happens if you had somebody that you agreed to meet at the gym? A friend or work colleague that you had made plans with to train with? You would have to go! And I bet that you would feel a lot bett…

Welcome to the first blog post from Chris’ Gym! Posts will be put up sporadically but fairly frequently so make sure that you check in at least once a week! To kick us off, I thought it would be a good idea to discuss the importance of something that should happen at that the start of every day (symbolism, got to love it!) so, to start off with, we are going to talk about breakfast and why I thi…
