Have a plan or plan to fail. Meal Prep is the cornerstone of any nutrition plan. Without it, we will struggle to maintain consistency and eventually fall of completely. Check out these tips that have worked well for us personally and our clients. If food prep seems daunting, start out small. Pick one meal you struggle with the most and prep quality foods in bulk at the beginning of the week. Give it a go and comment below if you have any questions.
Box Brief: Hello and welcome to the Sunday blog! Today’s topic is about dealing with injury. Unfortunately, as long as you have a body you will be susceptible to injury. That’s just part of life, and it can happen doing anything. Now I’m not saying any of this to scare you, but rather to prepare you if it does happen. When you sustain an injury it doesn’t mean you have to stop training. In fact, I would encourage that you don’t. The reality is that we can still modify around most injuries. For example when I hurt my ankle playing basketball I couldn’t put any weight on that foot. I would train more core, shoulders and still get my other leg involved when I could. I still found ways to create a cardiovascular response. Now coming back from that speed bump I’ve lost very little in terms of strength or ability. I could have stopped training completely, and I would be much further behind and I would have recovered slower. Today’s article will go into some fantastic detail about how we can train around injury and why. As always I hope you enjoy.
