Congratulations Alisdair - 170kg deadlift

Nothing this guy does with weights surprises me now - training hard for a couple of months, we took his deadlift to 165kgs, then he travelled for work and unfortunately was away for a month. He came back, came back to the studio, and smashed this awesome 170kg deadlift like it's nothin' (almost).

An awesome goal smashed as he nears a 2x bodyweight deadlift!

 

This man possesses an exuberance for training hard, lifting weights, and smashing goals, so well done, *tips hat* and keep up the good work!

Super inspirational stuff, show's what can be acheived, and he's training 2x or 3x times a week!

Feel Better - Everyday (3/3)

Welcome to Day 3. If you’ve been following closely, you will already have 2 days of life changing tips in the form of meditation and mindfulness, and food and nutrition. Making small changes to your life will go a long way to helping your results, you just have to put some planning in an actually make them happen. Day 3, the final part of this series, is training. The Active Lifestyle exists to help people, so it makes sense that this final instalment is focused on exercise and training. Without exercise, you’re missing out on so much that life has to offer – how does that work you say?

Exercise releases endorphins, which literally give you a kick up the butt and make you feel good. They also interact with pain receptors meaning that you hurt less! That’s short term – the long term benefits of exercise are well studied and documented, but if you don’t know; exercise keeps your heart working well and can help with problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure and other cardiovascular related decreases, for example being overweight is the biggest precursor to future medical issues like hypertension and strokes. But it’s not just cardio training that you need to be doing to futureproof your body. Weight training is the only way to ward off osteoporosis and keep your bones healthy for as long as they can be. Walking is just not enough. if you want to keep your quality of life at it's highest for as long as possible, the answer is weight training and exercise.

Every week we post a completely free workout on our YouTube channel to help you get started. It’s a high intensity interval training workout which will get your heart rate going hard and your muscles firing.

Here's one of our TAL Blast 10 minute workouts, hit subscribe to be updated when a new one comes online!

 

This kind of training is proven to give you the most bang for your buck – that is the best results in the shortest amount of time. Most people don’t want to be working out for hours, which is why we keep our in studio sessions to 45 minutes – so you can get in, work hard, and get back to your busy life.
