30 Somethings / What Made You Change?

Good luck!  Have to say Skimble helped me a lot since I joined up a few months ago.   For me it was the fear I may never be able to play football and express myself the way I do with a ball ever again, that fear was at its peak when I was being rolled into the operating theatre for a knee operation in 2011... when I woke up I didn't know if I could even walk but I promised myself I would make a comeback... it's been a series of comebacks in reality, failures, disappointments, lots and lots of learning and growth in the process... many things add fuel to your fire when you're going through this transformation and fighting for your dream, whatever it is.   Just keep going.

If I were at my computer, I could but I'm not at home at the moment. If you don't feel like waiting, you should make an account on myfitnesspal and it will definitely add up those calories for you

Welcome Wagon / girls that smoke

Quite simply, women become instantly invisible to me the moment a cigarette is raised to their lips... it's like magic, one puff and they just disappear! ;)

Motivation & Support / Motivational Inspiration

Do you know what truly motivates you?  When you isolate your true motivation/goal - everything is part of the journey.  You have ups and downs, emotional highs and deep lows, but, no matter what - you know the end goal because that is the pure thing that drives you forward.  Your best will vary from day today, sometimes we are at max power, sometimes weaker than usual, sometimes even sick so give yourself a break, forgive yourself - it's a journey, you are not losing focus again, you are simply showing signs of a true warrior - one who questions why is not weak, it shows you want to assert the validity of your mission, however great or small.

Ask the Pros / Fitness & Nutrition Tips


Some of the most effective supplements I use for burning fat:

Thermogenics (metabolism booster) also known as fat burners - mixtures of herbs and stimulants that can increase body temperature to torch fat.  Short term boost only - stick to label guidance. Avoid taking after 2pm if you plan to sleep! 

Green tea (great diet drink) one of the best natural fat burners - I stick a few bags in a 2ltr bottle of water and top up during day - drinking minimum 3ltrs of it - you get used to taste and awesome antioxidant.  I notice difference when I fall out of habit.  

Phosphytadyle serine (the cortisol buster) when training you put body under natural stress, so the stress hormone (cortisol) which is responsible for fat storage, is secreted in high amounts.  Phosphytadyl serine helps to block secretion which allows you to recover quicker, burn more fat and build more muscle.  800mg after training or for people prone to high stress take in the evenings. 

L-Carnitine (the fat shredder) amino acid responsible for transporting fatty acids into mitochondria (your cell's powerhouse)

Workouts and Programs / Football Fitness

Intensive Endurance

Cardio-Vascular Endurance for Football Fitness
The level of an individuals cardio-vascular (CV) endurance fitness is a good signifier of how well their heart and lungs work together to supply the body with oxygen. Endurance is basically the ability to delay the onset of fatigue during periods of exercise or training, which is crucial of football fitness. There are two types of endurance that ideally a footballer will have; aerobic and anaerobic (speed) endurance. The terms aerobic and anaerobic relate to the oxygen used by the body during the activity.

Aerobic based movements are continuous and occur over a period of time, such as jogging, with the aid of oxygen, so improving an individuals’ aerobic endurance will mean that a football player's body can more efficiently transport oxygen around the body and to the cells and muscles that require it.

Anaerobic movements are conducted in short bursts and do not use oxygen during their completion, an example of an anaerobic movement would be sprinting.

Due to the nature of movement in football it is crucial that football player's have good aerobic systems so that they are able to continue working at the desired level for the entirety of the match, however throughout the match the player will be required to sprint, jump (etc) so a good level of anaerobic endurance is also required, so that they can continually carry these motions when required. Football fitness training should therefore be designed to improve both of these bodily systems and functions.

Fasted Mountain Hill-Climb

More self-talk :) 

I am strengthening and stretching and building muscle mass and tone increasing cardio stamina and light on my feet, releasing my body to perform at professional levels.  

I'm concentrating all my efforts on being ready to play football, I am developing explosive acceleration, training to produce ferocious striking power and practicing daily to be a cool finisher.

In small-sided games am improving to be so sharp and explosive, getting space and my shots on goal will be precise and give goalkeepers no chance   I will be great in the air too.  I'm a natural goalscorer and have an Eagle eye for a pass and my fitness and technical training brings this out in abundance :)

More of my daily self-talk: 

I'm mindful and remember to mentally prepare deliberately for each training session - what I will do, why and how.  

I am working super smart, efficiently and effectively every day to be in the greatest shape of my life, extremely strong and fit with fantastic endurance and explosive power.  

I have incredible support from good people who want to see me successful in football and I am so grateful for this source of strength and motivation. I keep pushing!

I'm feeling fantastic and happy training hard to achieve the standard for semi/pro football.
