Im gonna surprise you

(or maybe not)

 

Despite being a Physical Fitness and Performance Coach

Talking with a brummie accent

And spending my day in a tshirt, shorts and trainers…

 

I’m actually a published scientist

(full on geek)

Oh yeah…

 

Yep, many years ago

When I did my Masters Degree

I did a research study

Which was then published in a Science Journal

 

‘The effects of combined sodium bicarbonate and carbohydrate ingestion on intermiittment exercise performance’

 

Yawn!

 

Now if I haven’t bored you off already…

There is method to madness!

 

The science like this is great…

It informs how to do the best training…

Nutrition, injury prevention etc.

That’s why I’ve spent years

Speaking with world leaders in this field

(and also traveled ‘down under’)

 

But the thing is…

This is black and white information

Do we live in a black and world?

 

Nah…

You train and perform in a grey world

And this means…

This great info, means nothing without context

 

TWO EXAMPLES….

 

So back to my published study

It concluded…

Sodium bicarbonate taken before exercise

Could reduce the physiology which causes fatigue

Here’s the thing though!

 

Its not practical…

 

Ever took this supplement?

It causes your stomach…

To feel the same as after laxatives

(and make you go to the toilet as much)

 

A good risk to take before your match?

Worthwhile gamble before your race?

 

Second example…

Plyometric training

This can improve performance

Lots of studies show it, BUT…

 

Unless your very well trained…

In the resistance training department

You will get more superior gains through…

Resistance training, getting stronger

And…

You won’t risk getting injured

 

So when you read about all these things

In your magazines

On the web

From other people

Just think about the context

 

That’s where i’m using my skills

Its great I’ve got the knowledge

(training, performance, nutrition, coaching)

From my geeky scientist mates world wide

 

BUT ALSO…

My years coaching in the field and understanding this

Getting to talk to experts about these things

Mean I also get the context

 

Knowledge can help you get faster, fitter, stronger…

But add in the experience in the context…

Its a whole new game!

 

Literally can’t wait to open up!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Hope you’ve had a quality week
