Choosing the correct trainers


Not that you may realise, but buying a pair of trainers which are right for you rather than ones you like the look of can be one of the most important things you do. Buying trainers which are not suited to you can lead to an array of problems and is one of the most common mistakes people make.


How many reps should I do?


Over the last few weeks I have expressed my views on lack of knowledge and interpretation when in the gym environment. This is down to many things but as I stressed knowing the basics in all areas definitely should not be ignored.


Carbohydrates pre, post and during exercise


LAST week I talked about the need for liquid during exercise and deciding the correct form for your specific needs. I don’t think there is any argument that this is essential, but what else is needed? To keep it basic our body needs an energy source to perform even just the daily basic tasks.


Hydration in exercise


IT IS not an uncommon sight to see drinking water facilities in workplaces or just even people carrying a bottle of water. We definitely have become more aware of the benefits of drinking water and the need of having water as part of our diet.


Colour vision defects


THE ability to perceive colour adds an extra dimension to the way we see the world. The process of colour perception starts with the absorbtion of light by small cells known as “Cones” which form part of the retina at the back of the eye.
