Get Fit

Wrestling involves lots of contact with the opponent. For that, you must have the strength and the stamina to last in the ring. This is why you must get fit. Improve your body. Not only will it help you to win in your matches, it will also help you look good. Working out should be part of your daily routine.

CrossFit: Nutrition

Great video, from Greg Glassman, founder of CrossFit, discussing the principles behind the ‘Zone Method’ and diet.

I’m still learning about this so it would be good to get your thoughts on whether this nutrition works for you.

I’m not an elite athlete and don’t train that often (my kids generally wake me up twice a week), so I’m modifying this guide for me. Which involves about 1/3 protein and then carbs and vegetables, trying to reduce sugar intake.

Mythbusters: I Cracked the Code!

If you want to loose the fat, this article has some great pointers from Joy who is actually putting them into practice. The pictures speak for themselves. Thanks Joy for this post – “Eat Clean and Train Dirty”.


So I’m standing in line at Nutrishop to pay for a few supplements that my coach has recommended I partake in and the woman in front of me is asking the cashier to recommend a fat burner that will make her lose weight. As the conversation continues, it becomes clear what she is asking – she wants a pill that will just shed the extra pounds for her and I’m thinking “ooo I want that too!” so excitedly I await the response.. Ready? Here it is:

1. What supplements can I take to lose weight?

It’s this magic pill that you can’t purchase from fantasyland. lol All kidding aside, supplements are designed to “supplement” (get it?) and amplify your results. That means that you can take something to help you while you (1) put in the work and (2) follow a clean and healthy diet. Muscles are built as a result…

Mothers Day Classic 2014 Australia

The 2014 Mothers Day Classic Is Coming

Running for a cause | The Satellite.

The 2014 Mothers Day Classic on Sunday 11 May 2014. Its a good event to train for and you can lose it in lycra or decide even to wear a tutu as some participants often do.

The event aims to fundraise and remind the community that breast cancer:

The Mother’s Day Classic walk or run for breast cancer research was established in 1998 by Women in Super. It started from modest beginnings as a walk in the park and has grown into a major national community event.

Its purpose is to raise money for National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) research programs and awareness of breast cancer in the community.

The founding organisers are Mavis Robertson, Former National Chair of Women in Super and Louise Davidson, National Chair, Mother’s Day Classic.

The idea for the Mother’s Day Classic came from Mavis Robertson when she saw a similar event overseas. She came back from her trip and spoke to Women in Super about organising an event in Australia.

Three years earlier, Louise Davidson had lost her mother to breast cancer at the age of 52. Louise had cared and supported her mother through her two-year battle with breast cancer. So when Mavis spoke about the event and raising money for breast cancer research, Louise knew that Women in Super could take the idea and make it a reality.

With no experience but lots of enthusiasm and dedication, a Women in Super volunteer committee was established in Melbourne and Sydney and the first event was held in both cities in 1998.

The Mother’s Day Classic ran in Melbourne and Sydney for six years before other capital cities started to join in. Then Women in Super volunteers established Mother’s Day Classic committees with volunteers from the superannuation industry helping to drive participation, sponsorship and promotion in each city. The committees also work with event management companies in the 10 cities across Australia.

The Mother’s Day Classic also works closely with the National Breast Cancer Foundation. The money raised by the Mother’s Day Classic supports quality and cutting edge research across Australia.

From the inaugural events in Melbourne and Sydney which attracted approximately 3,200 people the event has now become an integral part of Mother’s Day morning for more than 125,000 Australians who enjoy getting up early to walk or run and raise money for breast cancer research. It has become a morning of activity and entertainment for families, schools, universities, corporate teams, runners and anyone who enjoys sharing activity on Mother’s Day morning. The event also brings together people who are living with breast cancer or know someone who has been affected by, or lost someone to breast cancer. It is a time to remember, pay tribute and celebrate their lives and their strength.

In 2013, a record 130,000 people across Australia ran or walked in a Mother’s Day Classic event in eleven cities and 63 regional locations. Participants and fundraisers raised $5 million for National Breast Cancer Foundation research programs – the highest amount of funds in the event’s sixteen year history.

Participation in the city events ranges from 1400 in Darwin to 44,000 in Melbourne. Regional events range from 65 people to 3,000 people.

In October 2009, Her Excellency, the Governor General, Quentin Bryce, agreed to become patron of the Mother’s Day Classic.

Since 1998, the Mother’s Day Classic has raised $19.8 million for National Breast Cancer Foundation research programs.

The success of the Mother’s Day Classic is due to the hard work and commitment of volunteers across the country who are willing to work together and go the extra mile for a cause that affects so many lives – breast cancer.

So there will be a huge amount of pink tshirts and pink lycra and its all for a good cause. To register or fundraise visit Mothers Day Classic.
