How you breathe affects your progress. So are you doing it right?

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….

Happy World Salmon Day!

If you didn’t know already,, World Salmon Day is tomorrow!  As we know Salmon is a superfood filled with a huge range of nutrients and what better way to celebrate such a wonderful food source than on World  Salmon Day.    I have however seen recently some interesting news from the Australian salmon producer Tassal, which has informed us and found that while the fish is a popular choice for Australian consumers, almost three quarters (71%) of the nation lack awareness on how to best cook it.

Pretty crazy stuff!   Lucky for us, and me, of course haha, Tassal has taken up the challenge In a mission to champion Australia’s love for the superfood.  They’ve  has also teamed up with leading nutritionist Susie Burrell to highlight how easy it is to prepare salmon for different meals of the day, while also championing the unknown benefits of eating salmon – and why it is known for being so super. 
“Fueling my family with the right foods is a key part of my role as a mum and salmon is one of the most nutrient-dense options available.  It’s one of the richest sources of omega-3 fats, its high in protein and contains Vitamin D, Vitamin E and a range of B group vitamins and antioxidants. ” she says,  “There are a few foods that offer so many key nutrients in a single-serve, which is why salmon is frequently referred to as ‘brain food’!  Omega-3 fatty acids in particular provide a multitude of benefits throughout the body.”

Despite 61% of Australians seeing salmon as a healthy and nutritious meal option,
research has shown that Aussies on average know only 2 salmon-based recipes, compared to 7 chicken and 5 beef.

With Aussies struggling to know what to do with salmon in the kitchen to take advantage of its health-boosting abilities, Tassal is commandeering a new routine to make it easier than ever for families to have the confidence to cook it.
Aussies are being encouraged to embrace the ‘5 + 5 = salmon made super’ routine – an easy and efficient method where a fillet of salmon is grilled on each side for five minutes before being served.

Is squatting actually bad for your knees?


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.
