Mini Olympics

you are lovely

In conjunction with our open day and mini olympics being held at our Bulimba facility on September 2nd I thought it would be good to give everybody the chance to have a go at the events that will be held on the day.

Below is a list of the events which our competitors will be competing in to win some pretty awesome prizes. We have a total of $3000 worth of prizes to give away.

Take a video of you completing each event and document your times and reps and post your videos on our Facebook page so we can see how you compared to all our athletes on the day. Get involved and have some fun.

 

Please complete a full warm up and stretch before trying the events. All events will have a 5-10min rest period before the start of the next event.

 

Event 1. 100m sprint – recored time

Event 2. Maximum metres covered in 1 min on the rowing machine

Event 3. Maximum amount of push ups in 1 minute (chest must touch the floor and elbows must be locked out at the top of each rep)

Event 4. Maximum amount of calories on the assault bike in 1 minute

Event 5. 60sec sprint on the spin bike then 50 air squats for time, record time it takes to do the squats

What is Genetic Wellness?

What is genetic wellness - card(1)

What is Genetic Wellness? By Mark Haynes
We uses 15 sciences (anthropometrics, genomics, phenotypology, embryology, endocrinology, nutrigenomics, molecular biology, geo-medicine, traditional medicines, geneology, ancestry & lineage, neuropsychology, chronobiology, lifestyle medicines, advanced diagnostics and semiotics) to quantify the phenotype, or Body Profile, and calculate the resulting needs of the body. The outputs from the program include:
•    Specific digestive and dietary considerations
•    Optimal exercise and physical activity recommendations
•    Environmental needs
•    Social and lifestyle preferences
•    Personality traits, natural talents and disease predisposition

Below is a general outline of  the genetic program works and a link to more science.

This genetic wellness program measures your genes which don’t change through out your entire life. But obviously you look different as you age, we can learn’t behaviours and are conditioned from our environment which all effects who we are both physically and mentally.

What the program also measures is which genes are turn on or turned off. Then it works out what you need to do turn the right genes on and the wrong genes off. So with all the measures, you get the DNA and you also get how that DNA has been changed and that is your phenotype. That is what you show on the outside. Then the outputs are calculated based on the things that you need to do to restore balance to your body and mind.

Most people think you just have to look at food and exercise.  But have you ever been in a crap workplace, a crap relationship and/or a crap environment. All of those things effect your whole body and this program understands what you need to do to re-balance that part of you because it can be more power sometimes than food and exercise.

Basic terms – it measure you DNA, measure which genes are on or off and it tells you what to do to turn the right genes on and the wrong genes off. And all of these things that effect that are food, exercise, mind, social, place, talents.  Which are the areas we look at and coach on.

Chest of the Gods

Chest of the Gods

For all you guys out there looking to grow that chest but have hit a plateau, this program is for you. There is no need to target this muscle group more than once a week with a huge variety of different movement patterns if trained properly. Keep the program simple and targeted and work to failure and you’ll be on your way to the chest of your dreams.

Before any good workout should come and very good warm up and your chest is no different. Without an adequate warm up to prepare your chest and shoulders for what is to come there is no way you will hit the numbers necessary for you to achieve your gaols.

Warm up. 

Part 1. 3 sets of

15 broom stick shoulder dislocations

30sec dead hang

 

Part 2. 2 sets of 15 reps (60sec rest between sets)

Prone DB Cuban press

 

Part 3. 2 sets of 15 reps

Cable or resistant band internal /external rotations

 

Part 4. 2 sets of 10 reps

Push ups

Standing resistant band pull-parts (big squeeze of the scapulas)

 

Workout.

Week 1-2: 3 sets x 8eps (2min rest between sets)

Week 3-4: 4 sets x 6 reps (2-3min rest)

Week 5-6: 5 sets x 3-4 reps (3-4min rest)

Strength training program for beginners

With the new year well under way our training facility has been lucky enough to have a lot of new members joining the THINK family. New year resolutions are giving new and existing members the extra motivation to get to the gym and chase their goals.

Knowing where to start and exactly what to do to achieve those goals can very scary and at times a little overwhelming. I have put together a strength training program for anyone who is a little lost or unsure where to start when it comes to strength training.

I have designed this program with 5 training days and 2 rest days. Before each session make sure you perform a 10-15 min warm up. Warm up should include a form of cardio (rower or bike) mobility, miofacial release (foam roller or massage ball) and specific movement payments that mimic the session movements.
