Bored at Work?

Bored at work? There could be a silver lining couldn’t there… You could be training just after work at CrossFit Staines. Imagine the camaraderie, imagine the fun!  Imagine yourself getting fitter and fitter by the day as you exercise away all your woes? You’ll become buff, people will start to fancy you more. Your miserable work colleagues who you can see now, your grey, soulless colleagues will want to be you…. even more than they do now. Earn the beer pal. EARN the wine you sexy minx. Come to the gym and start today, the only thing you have to lose is body fat Regards Paul Elliott-Smith White Noise – CrossFit...

Has Your Gym Been Mollycoddling You?

Hello you beautiful bounder… The weather is starting to get hot and your thighs may have started to rub at the top… A bit of chubrub at the top of your thighs never fails to let you know that your New Years Resolution to get fit and lose a bit of weight for summer has gone absolutely and utterly pear shaped, just like your body has. It’s time to face the facts… Last time you were walking around Tesco’s, there was so much friction your private garden was two steps away from bursting in flames!… If this tale sounds too awfully familiar it really is time to get your very hot, very sweaty butt into the gymnasium and try to get bikini fit for the summer because… Lets be totally honest it’s 2016, man or woman you should all be comfortable wearing bikini on the beach. So fellas if you fancy getting all dressed up in drag this summer by the sea; or ladies if it looks like you’re in drag when you’re wearing a swimming costume and you really wish it didn’t, come down to the gym for some nice group training and sort that gender bending summer holiday bod’ right out. Love you… White Noise...

There Is No Such Thing As Overtraining

Written by Rob MacDonald – Gym Jones There is no such thing as overtraining, there is only under-recovery. Most people don’t put in enough time, effort, or train with enough intensity to put themselves in a state of overtraining. Most people simply don’t recover well enough. “Genuine overtraining” refers to a long term pattern of being overworked often times coupled with substandard recovery. There are those who may put themselves in a genuine state of overtraining. Take for example the athlete who puts in between 1000 and 1300 quality hours a year. That works out to between 19 and 25 hours per week, every week of the year, with no time off. These aren’t just junk hours either. They are quality hours. Do you train that much? Do you put in that kind of effort? Ask yourself a simple question and answer it honestly: How much do I train in an average week? Remember that just showing up to the gym for a few hours a day doesn’t mean you trained. We are talking about quality hours here. So how many quality hours do you put in per week? It probably isn’t enough to actually be overtrained. Chances are that if you think you are overtrained you are actually just under-recovered. If you want to improve then recovery must be taken seriously. The work in the gym is only a piece of the puzzle when it comes to being fit. Remember that “Training = Work + Rest”. Without adequate rest and recovery the training will become less effective and you will plateau. In my experience when people have hit...
