How Important Is Sleep For Muscle Growth, Fat Loss and Recovery?

With life as busy as it is today, getting a good nights sleep becomes harder and harder. There are work, family and all the other commitments that go along with modern life. Not to mention when you finally get to bed, your phone is buzzing from applications that are designed to keep you glued to your phone long into the night (unless you are ordering your Gym Meals, then it's okay).

Warm-Up Routines: The Basics

Last week we discussed how cold Canberra was and delved into the ins and outs of the warm-up. We looked at when more mobility work and static stretching is needed, and when it's probably not. The article provided some essential points to help people navigate the world of warming-up. We learned that we should focus more on warming up the muscles we are about to train, as opposed to just ''warming-up'' in general and elevating our core temperature. So with all that said, what does a good warm-up look like?
