Energy as fuel, fuel as energy, we have all heard it before…
So let’s break this down so you have a better understanding of why you may lose weight or gain weght or not even move on the scale at all…

Just Breathe!

These are the words you might often hear if you are guilty of not breathing correctly or event at times, not at all, well very lightly breathing that is anyway.

Breathing is one of the basic fundamentals in any physical activity we do.   During high intensity regimes, your body uses more oxygen as your heart pumps it to your exercising muscles.  Our resting pace of breathing is about 15 times a minute and can quadruple when we exercise.  The way you breathe can affect the quality of that respiratory delivery, your workout and ultimately, your progress….

It’s a question that people have asked for centuries, or well a little while that is…

I was recently reading an article which referenced to “Squatting bad for your knees (Squat University)” and I instantly thought this would be a great opportunity to add to my weekly email through a reliable and referenced site I read up on regularly.  So I have picked a few bits of information from the write up to spark some interest from you to head over to their site to read the full write up.

Sweat testing the All Blacks

Gatorade has been putting the All Blacks through their paces with sweat tests ahead of their Tokyo campaign.  One of its main agendas is to educate athletes on the fuel they put in their bodies to achieve optimal performance and win from within.

In 2016, the world’s number one sports drink started a five-year partnership with one of the world’s most successful rugby teams to become the official hydration partner of the All Blacks, helping the boys to perform at their peak.   The partnership also provides access to the Gatorade Sports Science Institute (GSSI), the research and development arm of Gatorade.

Healthier population eases Australia’s disease burden

Measuring the number of years living with an illness or non-fatal burden indury or premature death, The Australian Beureau of Disease Study reports an overall improvement in health of Australians between 2003 and 2015.   Released in a report by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW), they conclude that 38% of total burden of diseas experienced by Australians in 2015 could have been prevented by reducing exposure to the risk factors identified in their study.

‘The 5 risk factors that caused the most total burden in 2015 were tobacco use (9.3%), overweight & obesity (8.4%), dietary risks (7.3%), high blood pressure (5.8%) and high blood plasma glucose—including diabetes (4.7%).’ said AIHW spokesperson Mr Richard Juckes. 

For the first time, living with illness or injury caused more total disease burden than premature death.  In 2015, the non-fatal share was 50.4% and the fatal share was 49.6% of the burden of disease.
