SHAPE UP FOR

SUMMER Q

Spring is here! That means the race is on to get that bikini body ahead of summer. Unfortunately winter has been unkind to my waistline. What can I do to speed up the fat-loss process?

A

This summer shape-up supplement plan packs a 1-2 combo punch to help you beat the winter weight gain. Combining metabolism-boosting thermogenic (a.k.a stimulantbased) fat burners with stimulantfree fat burners, or body toners can enhance fat loss as both work in

a synergistic fashion to deliver an enhanced fat-burning effect. This is possible as they work via different metabolic pathways to enhance fat loss efficiency and the rate of fat metabolism. In terms of thermogenic fat burners, to boost your metabolism, even while at rest, opt for products

that contain efficacious doses of one or more of the following stimulants and other thermogenic compounds: Caffeine, citrus aurantium extract (synephrine), green tea extract, yerba mate and yohimbine. The active ingredients in beneficial body toner supplements

include L-carnitine, which increases the fat-burning capacity of muscle cells, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which is a fatty acid that can decrease the amount of fat that your body stores, and chromium picolinate, a trace mineral essential for maintaining optimal insulin metabolism.

In the gym context the treadmill is your best bet 20

Depending on your pace, incline and intensity, you can burn between 6001200 calories per hour when running. The only other aerobic exercise modality that comes close is cross-country skiing, owing both to the physical demands and the fact that it’s usually performed in near-zero-degree temperatures, but that’s irrelevant to this discussion.In the gym context, the treadmill is your best bet, if you are free from injury and otherwise healthy that is. To give an indication of its effectiveness, in a study conducted at the Milwaukee VA Hospital that compared cardio exercises, users who felt that they had exercised equally strenuously on bikes and treadmills actually expended 25% more calories on the treadmill. The main reason why the treadmill is more effective in this regard is because running is a weight-bearing exercise. On say a stepper, elliptical, rower or stationary bike, your body weight is either wholly or partially supported, which means it requires less effort. From a health perspective, cardio improves our cardiovascular health, which can include better blood pressure, heart function, and blood yÂœĂœ ĂŒÂ…Ă€ÂœĂ•}Â… ĂŒÂ…i Ă›>ĂƒVĂ•Â?>Ă€ ĂƒĂžĂƒĂŒi“] along with improving lung function.

noting that the right type, intensity and duration of cardio can also help to lose weight and burn more body fat. Whatever your goal, it is important to know your heart rate while exercising because it indicates your effort level, and also provides information

about how close you are working to your aerobic and anaerobic thresholds (read more in the other Q&A in this section). Your heart rate is also the primary indicator of which energy system you are using to fuel your exercise – be it fat or glycogen (usually from ingested carbs).

EMBRACE THE BURN 4GD ADMDŲÇR NE JMNTHMF VNSQK@BÇHBżQŷGNKC What exactly is lactic acid build-up in your muscles, and why does it hurt so much? à ˆÌ «œÃÈLi ̜ «Àœ`ÕVi iÃȘœÀ`iÀ̜ «iÀvœÀ“ >Ì…ˆ}…ˆ˜Ìi˜ÃˆÌÞvœÀœ˜}iÀ`ÕÀ>̈œ˜Ã¶ Puleng

Lactic acid is actually one of the most misunderstood chemical compounds produced by the human body, and our general understanding of the role it plays in exercise performance has led to a great deal of misconception about it. Until fairly recently Vœ˜Ûi˜Ìˆœ˜> …i>Ì… >˜` w̘iÃà wisdom held that lactic acid was merely an undesirable, rate-limiting by-product of exercise. In this regard, that ‘burn’ you mention was generally attributed to the accumulation of lactic acid, which was deemed to be the root cause of an athlete’s inability to continue exercising above a certain threshold. While this explanation is not technically incorrect, the term lactic acid isn’t that accurate. What actually happens is the accumulation of lactate and hydrogen ions, and it is the hydrogen that creates a more acidic state that results in the ‘burn’. Therefore, a build-up of lactic acid was generally something to be avoided. Thankfully we now know better. In fact, lactic acid – >VÌ>Ìi ̜ Li “œÀi ëiVˆwV q ˆÃ not undesirable and there >Ài ˜Õ“iÀœÕà Li˜iwÌà ̜ Li gained from training at or above your lactate threshold (LT).

A

LACTIC THRESHOLD Basically, your LT is the point during exercise when the intensity of your effort forces your body to switch

from aerobic to anaerobic metabolism to sustain that activity. When the body switches to the anaerobic pathway to sustain energy production we start to experience a build-up of lactic acid. Above a certain point this lactate production exceeds the rate at which the body can remove it. While this point is different for everyone based on genetics, physiology and conditioning, the effects are the same – the rapid onset of muscular fatigue.

THE ROLE OF LACTATE However, rather than limit our ability to perform at our peak, lactate plays an important role in energy production in the absence of oxygen during high-intensity exercise and therefore actually helps to extend the time it takes to reach the point of muscular fatigue or failure. During highly intense exercise, lactate is resynthesized by the liver to form more glucose during anaerobic exercise, which effectively provides working muscles with more energy. Some of the lactate produced is also released into the blood stream and used directly as a fuel by cardiac muscle. More importantly, though, more recent research has shown that a large portion of lactate is actually metabolised in the muscle cell itself – in the mitochondria – to provide a direct fuel source for working muscles. Lactate accumulation in muscle tissue has also been shown in studies to delay fatigue through other mechanisms. As such, lactate has both a direct and indirect

Q effect on energy production during intense exercise. Lactate also plays a central role in the body’s adaptive response to exercise, as it stimulates a phenomenon called mitochondrial biogenesis. This process increases the concentration of mitochondria inside muscle cells, making ÞœÕ “œÀi ivwVˆi˜Ì >Ì i˜iÀ}Þ production. It is one of the most important adaptations to training for improved performance and enhanced metabolic function, which have applications in both sports performance and physique enhancement. Lastly, lactate also helps to boost the anabolic hormonal cascade that follows intense training, which is essential to repairing muscle and building new tissue. It therefore also aids recovery.

TRAIN FOR THE BURN To answer the second part of your question, the best way to train at higher intensities for longer is to train at higher intensities for longer. Stated another way, it is a good idea to train for that burn – at or above your LT – more frequently. By actively pursuing lactic acid production and training at the right intensities, you can actually push your threshold out. This means you’ll be able to train for longer and at higher intensities before reaching the point where you start to fatigue or feel the burn. This type of exercise is commonly referred to as threshold training. So don’t shy away from the ‘burn’. Embrace it as it has a lot to offer in terms of your performance and your physique goals.

with traditional lifting and CrossFit, but I always put my own spin on it. I use a lot of full-body movements and I never try to lift as heavy as I can. Proper form is so important.� In terms of her approach to dieting, Alexia believes that traditional diets aren’t sustainable over the long term. “What I’ve found works best is eating the right things for your body without feeling like you’re restricting yourself. If I feel like eating something, I do, but always in moderation. Otherwise I aim to eat vegetables at every meal, and I avoid red meat and anything processed.� When she’s not in the gym training or creating new content, Alexia loves to spend time with her dogs – an English bulldog named Roxy and a Rhodesian ridgeback named Mack.

3 BEST EXERCISES TO RELIEVE BACK PAIN

Collagen proteins are the building blocks of cartilage, tendons, bones, muscles, blood vessels and the skin. Age and poor lifestyle habits such as high sugar consumption, smoking and excessive sun exposure all lower collagen levels, making replenishment important, especially for injury prevention and avoiding osteoarthritis later in life. Pro Collagen is ideal for supplementing reduced collagen production to ensure a healthy, active lifestyle.

WHERE ’S YOUR HEAD AT? The perfect squat is about more than just your hips and feet

quat heavy and squat QHVGP6JCVoUCUWTGĆ‚TG approach to achieving the legs and butt you’re after, but it can also fast track injury if you fail to squat with proper form and technique. While we often discuss the correct biomechanics for the hip hinge, along with foot position and how your knees should track your toes, very seldom is the important subject of head position addressed. There are three options you’re likely to hear in the gym. These include the “eyes to the skyâ€? approach, keeping your gaze straight ahead, or looking down.

S

But which is correct? DOWN AND OUT According to a study published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research using the front barbell squat (D.V. Donnelly et al. 2006), a downward head position produced an 8% greater forward bend at the hips and a

Ă“ÂŻ}Ă€i>ĂŒiĂ€vÂœĂ€Ăœ>Ă€`yiĂ?ˆœ˜ÂœvĂŒÂ…i spine. The researchers found that this contributed to a greater stress load on the lower back and vertebral disks. Bending the lower back forward, which tends to happen when your head is cast forward, can also lead to spinal disc injuries. UP, UP AND AWAY An upward-looking head position, on the other hand, led to a loss of balance in the study. In other tests, the headup position was also found to iĂ?ĂŒi˜`ĂŒÂ…iĂŒÂ…ÂœĂ€>VˆVĂƒÂŤÂˆÂ˜i>˜` increased compressive forces along the entire spine. The eyes-to-the-sky position can also compromise the posterior chain muscles that add stability to the normal structure of the spine.

which can cause damage, or cause numbness, tingling, or pain, or even blackouts due to a lack of blood to the brain. NEUTRAL IS BEST The best head position, according to the Donnelly study and many other industry iĂ?ÂŤiĂ€ĂŒĂƒ] ÂˆĂƒ “>ÂˆÂ˜ĂŒ>ˆ˜ˆ˜} > Â?iĂ›iÂ? head position. In their study conclusion, the researchers recommended that weight lifters should watch themselves in the mirror while performing squats. This forward-looking head position ensures that your neck and spine remain in alignment throughout the lift. This is termed a neutral head position and greatly reduces the stress on the cervical spine during

the squat, as well as other compound lifts like deadlifts, lunges and step-ups. The neutral head position also allows the chest to stay upright and the trapezius muscles to remain under the bar, which enhances whole-body biomechanics. ACHIEVING A NEUTRAL HEAD POSITION To achieve and maintain a neutral head position, stand in an upright position with your gaze cast forward, then drive your chin directly backwards towards your spine. This will create a slight downward gaze with your eyes, but your neck and spine should remain in alignment.

This forward-looking head position ensures that your neck and spine remain in alignment throughout the lift.

OBSTACLE COURSE RACING bstacle course racing (OCR) has become hugely popular as it combines running (or walking) with challenging obstacles in the form of monkey bars, rope climbs, swings, wall climbs, mud pits, tunnels, river crossings and platform plunges into icy water, among many others. For those at the back of the pack, this is often a lot of dirty fun... However, it is still a series of physical challenges as you need the ability to run between obstacles, the endurance to run and work over an extended period of time, and still have the strength to climb up, over, on, under, or through some of the most draining obstacles that sadistic race organisers can think up. The trick to being as prepared as possible requires some general >˜`Â˜ÂœÂ˜Â‡ĂƒÂŤiVˆwVvĂ•Â˜VĂŒÂˆÂœÂ˜>Â? wĂŒÂ˜iĂƒĂƒ]ˆ˜>``ÂˆĂŒÂˆÂœÂ˜ĂŒÂœ…ˆ}Â…Â?Ăž ĂƒÂŤiVˆwVwĂŒÂ˜iĂƒĂƒVÂœÂ“ÂŤÂœÂ˜iÂ˜ĂŒĂƒ ĂƒĂ•VÂ…>ĂƒĂ€Ă•Â˜Â˜ÂˆÂ˜}wĂŒÂ˜iĂƒĂƒ>˜`ĂŒÂ…i strength needed to climb.

Bonus tip:

Carina adds that one of the most important, yet often most neglected aspects of OCR training, is adequate rest. “You need to sleep at least seven hours a night to recover adequately. Recovery can also consist of active rest, like yoga or Pilates, or an easy swim – anything that makes you feel well rested.�

Alternate between looking just in front of you and further up the track to check your line and spot hazards. 2NCPCJGCF Once you’ve spotted a hazard, deal with it as early as possible by either changing your line or planning the appropriate move for when you get there. Brake or steer early and smoothly rather than

leaving it to the last minute to avoid a fall or panic. #UUWOGVJGRQUKVKQPYour riding position can mean the difference between staying upright or eating dirt. Always approach an obstacle in the ‘standing’ position with your pedals level and your strongest foot forward for more manoeuvrability and quicker response times. /CKPVCKPVGPUKQPCPFVTCEVKQP Shift your weight to the back tyre to maintain wheel traction. Tension on the chain lets you manoeuvre out of a stalled position or will drive you forward when you pedal. $GEQOGCDTCMKPIGZRGTV Harsh braking results in a loss of control. Rather, apply the brakes in a smooth manner (progressive braking) and brake when travelling in a straight line, rather than with the front wheel turned. If a wheel skids under braking, release the brake then re-apply with a little less pressure, or brake less with the front brake as the trail gets loose.

You need to enjoy being in the pool, on the bike and on the road, because if you don’t you will never have the drive to achieve your goals.

TRIATHLON laire Horner is a top elite triathlete and a coach at My Training Day (mytrainingday.com). She explains that training for a multi-discipline sport such as triathlon requires hours and hours of dedicated training, no matter what distance you choose to compete in. “The best advice I can therefore give to someone starting out is to ensure they’re getting into the sport because they really want to. You need to enjoy being in the pool, on the bike and on the road, because if you don’t you will never have the drive to achieve your goals.� STEP 1: Invest in the best equipment you can afford. “Equipment, especially running shoes, can make or break a triathlete,� says Claire. “Don’t cut corners on the quality of your equipment. Rather buy the best you can afford. Bikes and cycling gear and accessories make up the largest cost component of the sport, and triathlon bikes and equipment are generally more expensive than standard cycling gear. However, if you can afford it, get a specialised triathlon bike. The aerodynamic design and

C

equipment, such as deepsectioned rims or disc wheels can make an enormous difference to your times.â€? STEP 2: Find a group of like-minded athletes to start training with. “Many coaches will say that because triathlons are an individual sport you should do most of your training on your own. However, I feel the support offered by training with a group really helps athletes with motivation and pulls them through the hard days, which can be plentiful in this sport,â€? adds Claire. STEP 3: (KPFCSWCNKĆ‚GFEQCEJ who can assist with training, technique and equipment choices. “Periodised training is imperative in a sport with such high training loads,â€? continues Claire. She adds that ‘weekend warrior’ triathletes need a coach to ensure that the little time they have available for training during the week and on weekends is maximised. STEP 4: Improve your technique. According to Claire, technique is vital for competent swimming.

ing requires the g ocus on technique and is normally the discipline that takes the longest time to improve.� She advises that beginners start with pool swims, and progress to open water swims as race day approaches. In terms of running, a combination for running and walking in the conditioning phase of training is ideal. “Start with two minutes of running and a one-minute walk interval, then progressively increase the running component until you are comfortable,� suggests Claire. However, don’t just stick to road work. Claire advises that beginners eventually include track work, in addition to other forms of pacing and speed work, as well as endurance and strength training. In terms of cycling, time in the saddle is key, especially for Ironman distances. “And don’t leave out the hill work,� she suggests. If you have a triathlon bike, train on it often to get accustomed to the aerodynamic riding position.

Xterra beginner tips: Natia van Heerden is a former springbok gymnast who switched to triathlon and promptly won the u/25 Xterra World Championship title in 2014. She is currently training towards qualifying for the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii. 5JGCFXKUGUVJCVĆ‚TUVVKOGTUVCMGKVUNQY “Don’t expect to perform on your wĂ€ĂƒĂŒĂ€>Vi°ĂŒĂ•ĂƒĂ•>Â?Â?Ăž}iĂŒĂƒiĂ?ĂŒĂ€i“iÂ?ĂžÂ…ÂœĂŒ`Ă•Ă€ÂˆÂ˜}>˜8ĂŒiÀÀ>iĂ›iÂ˜ĂŒÂ°/CMGUWTG VJCV[QWUVC[J[FTCVGFDGHQTGCPFFWTKPIVJGTCEGStart at the back if you are nervous about the swim. Take it easy, keep your breathing steady and just enjoy the atmosphere! Get onto your mountain bike and ride as many trails as possible, and also try to get at least four sessions of running in per week. The run course is usually very hot, technical and often underestimated. It gets stressful out there on the bike. People are going to charge up to you from behind, calling out ‘track’ or ‘move’. 5VC[ECNOCPFNGVVJGOMPQYVJCV[QWoNN OQXGCUUQQPCUVJGTGoUCICRq

STEP 5: Train hard, recov hard. “My athletes will neve a long run and a long ride o same day, even those with a fulltime job and limited training time. Recovery is very important, so make sure you cycle your training days accordingly,� says Claire. STEP 6: Don’t neglect transitions. “When competing in the shorter distances it’s important to get quick transitions down. Use training days to work on your various transitions on a regular basis,� advises Claire.

2. Avoid hidden calories.

3. Control portions.

Don’t add sugar to anything, and avoid sweetened foodstuffs.

Butter, cream, sauces and other indulgent ingredients in common winter recipes add additional calories to every meal. Also, ditch processed foods which contain unhealthy fats.

Count your calories to ensure you create a slight `iwVÂˆĂŒ ˆ˜ your diet, while burning additional calories during training.

4. Consider carbs. Switch starchy carbs to more wLĂ€ÂœĂ•Ăƒ ÂœĂ€ Â?i>vĂž veg options.

S&C work not only changed me physically, but the mental strength I’ve gained has been transformative.

HOW STRENGTH TRAINING CHANGED MY LIFE Off the Grid (OTG) Athletic is an institution, not only in the North Coast town of Umhlanga Rocks where it’s located, but throughout South Africa, where it is highly respected in the strength & conditioning (S&C) community. Lil is the founder and driving force behind the brand and is, I’m sure you know by now, a staunch CFXQECVGQHVJGDGPGƂVU of strength training for women, whatever their goals my be. But instead of merely taking her word for it, we asked OTG clients to give us their perspective on how S&C changed their lives – ed.

Traci-Lee Zima “I’ve always had big shoulders and a broad back from years of swimming at school. My fear of lifting heavy was that my back and shoulders would get bigger and I’d become ‘butch’ (again). After numerous chats with Lil, I decided to trust her and trust the system! ˆvĂŒÂˆÂ˜}Â…i>ÛÞĂœiˆ}Â…ĂŒĂƒ`iwÂ˜ÂˆĂŒiÂ?Ăž changed my body, but for the better, along with my mind >˜`“ÞVœ˜w`i˜Vi°ˆÂ?>˜`Â…iĂ€ female athletes are walking examples that lifting heavy won’t make you big! I have no doubt that strength training is the best way forward.

The only regret I have is that I didn’t start sooner.

Arenea Becker “I’m a powerlifter who comes from a competitive Figure background. I started training Ă•Â˜`iĂ€ˆÂ?Â˝Ăƒ}Ă•Âˆ`>˜ViwĂ›iĂži>Ă€Ăƒ ago.

Training for strength improved my physique tenfold. I took a whole new package to the competitive stage following a transformation that’s been nothing short of phenomenal – I placed second at WFF World Champs in 2015 and I’m currently preparing for Powerlifting World Champs in September, after taking gold and breaking a world record in my weight category at Nationals.

I’ve been with Lil and OTG since 2015. Two years down the line my body has completely transformed, and I feel stronger, both physically and mentally.

SEPTEMBER - OCTOBER 2017 | XXXmUOFTTNBHDP[B

Jo Hill “I’ve always been active, but never had the EQPĆ‚FGPEGVQ participate in team sports. Then I found Lil, and strength training. S&C work not only changed me physically, but the mental strength I’ve gained has been transformative. Lil was someone who I saw as having ‘the perfect physique’, along with an exemplary attitude towards training, and undeniable strength. I contacted her in the hopes that she could help me get the ‘toned’ look I wanted. I expected her to tell me to start each morning with fasted cardio and end each day with a long run, but she didn’t. She introduced me to weights – heavy weights; weights I’d never have thought I could lift. She pushed me to do push-ups – not girly push-ups, but proper push-ups. She introduced me to compound lifts: the squat, deadlift and bench press, and they’ve made all the difference.

KETTLEBELL SQUAT We love squat variations! They keep our training fresh and interesting, without having to skip out on the most effective exercise we can do in the gym. In this way we keep making gains, while also challenging our bodies and minds to master new moves.

KETTLEBELLS: Keep the kettlebells locked out in position above your head throughout h h t the movement.

HEAD AND NECK: Maintain alignment in your head, neck and spine, with your head up and your gaze cast forward.

ARMS: Keep your elbows locked (not locked out) and arms directly overhead.

BACK: Keep your spine in a neutral position and back straight. Squeeze your upper back.

CHEST: Keep your chest up throughout the movement.

TORSO: Keep your upper body upright and chest tall. Maintain an engaged core throughout the exercise.

HIPS: Hinge at the hips and lower yourself down toward the ground by moving your glutes back and down.

Performed by Nicole Warburg Dressed by Puma

TO START: Hold a kettlebell in either hand, in the top corner, with an overhand grip (palms facing you). Stand upright with your feet positioned hip-width apart.

50

Clean and press the kettlebells with both arms, rotating your wrist as you do so. With arms extended and the kettlebells overhead, you are ready to start the exercise.

HANDS: Hold the kettlebells with a regular grip – the top corner of the handle should sit in the palm of your hand, with the kettlebell positioned on the outside of your arm.

CAUTION: If the kettlebells fall forward during the descent into the deep squat position then either your upper back and/ or shoulder mobility needs to be improved or your squatting technique is incorrect.

SEPTEMBER - OCTOBER 2017 | XXXmUOFTTNBHDP[B

ABDOMINALS: Keep your core muscles braced throughout the exercise.

KNEES: Bend your knees to descend into a deep squat. Ensure your knees move outward in the same direction as your feet.

FEET: Use a wide stance with your feet pointing slightly outward. Maintain VÂœÂ“ÂŤÂ?iĂŒiVÂœÂ˜ĂŒ>VĂŒĂœÂˆĂŒÂ…ĂŒÂ…iyÂœÂœĂ€ĂŒÂ…Ă€ÂœĂ•}Â… all phases of the squat, with an equal distribution of weight through your forefoot and heel. Press through the heel and forefoot to return to the upright position.

LIFE LESSONS LEARNT THROUGH

#QNŝ&Ÿ $NM¼ÇRDŽKD My experiences within the CrossFit community have helped me realise that I can’t settle on anything in life, whether it’s love, work, life or sport.

(D@KşV#NLODÇŸHNM Another lesson worth sharing, especially COQPIYQOGPKUVJGDGPGƂVVJCVUQOG healthy competition can have on your results. Women tend to be more social, even in their training. CrossFit culture is built around competition, though, be it against others or against the clock, which helps to push you. Every day in your training, be it an hour in the box, running a 5k, losing weight, or even if you want to make it to the Games, there’s always someone to compete against, even if that’s yourself. Through this competition you soon realise that you’re capable of so much more, and it gives you VJGEQPƂFGPEGVQVCMGQPPGYEJCNNGPIGU CPFVT[PGYVJKPIU

epending on how you choose to look (and learn) from preparing for and competing in competitive CrossFit, the discipline holds a number of lessons that are applicable to everyday life. It has taught me many things, both about myself and about how best to approach every facet of life.

"K@WD8NSQ/TM0@Ĺź My CrossFit journey has taught me the value of blazing your own path, and that you can reach the same point without following the conventional route. My friends always tell me that I’m not ordinary, which is borne out in my approach to CrossFit. I’m often asked “why can’t you just be normal?â€?, but I can’t be ordinary because it scares the hell out of me. That’s why I chose ĂŒÂ…iĂ•Â˜VÂœÂ˜Ă›iÂ˜ĂŒÂˆÂœÂ˜>Â?Ă€ÂœĂ•ĂŒiĂœÂ…i˜wĂ€ĂƒĂŒĂƒĂŒ>Ă€ĂŒi` competing.

0SRG0@RÇ8NSQ,HLŸR Along similar lines, competitive CrossFit has helped me to realise that many of our so-called limits are self-imposed. If a mother of three who works full time, yet is still able to train enough to snatch 90 kilos or crush Murph (a WOD for time – 1-mile run, 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 squats and another 1-mile run), VJGPYJCV GZEWUGFQ[QWJCXGHQTPQVCVNGCUV trying?

&HMC 8NSQ "@K@MBD Lastly, my CrossFit experience has taught me the value of balance. As I shared in my previous column, I trained myself into the ground and paid the price. Being a competitive person means it can often be all CrossFit, all the time, which meant I would take it with me into every aspect of life. You need to separate your worlds, though. You need balance. Now that I’ve compartmentalised my life, with the ability to leave training at the gym, I feel so much more at ease. Make sure to take breaks and to relax, as being too strict is unsustainable.

BURNING OUT WHY WOMEN SHOULD AVOID USING FAT BURNERS FORMULATED FOR MEN

HORMONAL DIFFERENCES

MYRIAD FACTORS hile the hardcore packaging of the thermogenic fat burners in your man’s supplement cupboard may look appealing, especially as it may imply that it’s more effective at ‘shredding’ or ‘torching’ fat, it’s important for women to understand that taking products formulated URGEKĆ‚ECNN[HQTOGPECPJCXG an adverse effect. That’s because men and women are distinctly different, not only physically in terms of their weight, height and relative body composition, but also in their physiology and biology, particularly the ways their hormonal (endocrine) systems function, along with their metabolisms.

It’s important for women to understand that taking products formulated specifically for men can have an adverse effect. 72

Let’s look at the obvious FKHHGTGPEGUĆ‚TUV Women generally weigh less than men, which means to have the same effect, a dose of a potent thermogenic compound would ˜ii`ĂŒÂœLiĂƒÂˆ}˜ˆwV>Â˜ĂŒÂ?ĂžÂ“ÂœĂ€iˆ˜ a fat burner formulated for men than it would in one formulated ĂƒÂŤiVˆwV>Â?Â?ĂžvÂœĂ€ĂœÂœÂ“i˜° The manner in which compounds are metabolised in the body of a female can also be vastly different to the way the same substance is metabolised by a male’s body. Take alcohol, for instance. As a women’s body is, in general, composed of more fat, and they carry less water – the average adult male is approximately 60% water and the average adult female is approximately 50% – the concentration of alcohol (or medication or stimulants) will likely be greater in the body of a female, even when body weight is the same. Alcohol is also metabolised slower in the digestive systems of women, allowing more alcohol to reach the blood stream and other organs than in men.

There are also differences in enzyme activity between “i˜>˜`ĂœÂœÂ“i˜ĂŒÂ…>ĂŒˆ˜yĂ•i˜Vi the metabolism of substances like medication and alcohol. For example, gastric alcohol dehydrogenase activity is higher in males than in females. As a result, women have a lower alcohol threshold than men. Differences in digestive health, food interactions, gut motility and transit time (mean transit times are shorter in men than in women), gut pH (gastric yĂ•Âˆ`ÂˆĂƒÂ“ÂœĂ€i>Vˆ`ˆVˆ˜“>Â?iĂƒ ĂŒÂ…>˜vi“>Â?iĂƒÂŽ]>˜`}Ă•ĂŒyÂœĂ€> VÂœÂ“ÂŤÂœĂƒÂˆĂŒÂˆÂœÂ˜V>˜>Â?ĂƒÂœˆ˜yĂ•i˜Vi differences in the absorption ÂœvĂƒÂŤiVˆwVVÂœÂ“ÂŤÂœĂ•Â˜`Ăƒ]Â?ˆŽi those found in thermogenic fat burners.

Alcohol is also metabolised slower in the digestive systems of women, allowing more alcohol to reach the blood stream than in men

In terms of hormonal differences, oestrogen, which is the dominant sex hormone in females, has a “>Â?ÂœĂ€ ˆ˜yĂ•i˜Vi ˆ˜ }>ĂƒĂŒĂ€ÂˆV wĂ€ĂƒĂŒÂ‡ÂŤ>ĂƒĂƒ “iĂŒ>LÂœÂ?ÂˆĂƒÂ“ >˜` the elimination rates of both >Â?Vœ…œÂ? >˜` ÂœĂ€>Â?Â?ĂžÂ‡ÂˆÂ˜}iĂƒĂŒi` medications (the ways drugs are metabolised is known as pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics). Even caffeine is metabolised at different rates, with men experiencing a greater effect, and within just 10 minutes, than that experienced by women, according to a recent study conducted by researchers from the University of Barcelona. The fact that the metabolism of most substances is slower in women than in men is believed to be the major cause of differential pharmacokinetics between the sexes. Practically speaking, this means that higher doses of compounds will take longer to be metabolised and get to work in females, and will also take a longer time before they can be eliminated from the LÂœ`Þ° œ˜}Â‡ĂŒiÀ“ Ă•Ăƒi Âœv ĂŒÂ…i wrong fat burner can therefore V>Ă•Ăƒi > LĂ•ÂˆÂ?`‡Õ vÂœĂ€ ÂŤÂœĂœiĂ€vĂ•Â? compounds as the female body is not able to process the dosages and volumes being taken.


Despite its primary function as a fat burner, overdosing on these products can actually reduce your ability to lose fat over time. STRESS RESPONSE Exceeding gender-relevant FQUCIGUQHURGEKƂEEQORQWPFU can also affect your body in other ways, as Gareth Powell, Technical Manager for Ascendis 5RQTVU0WVTKVKQPGZRNCKPU “Thermogenic fat burners have a tendency to elevate cortisol levels, which increases total stress, reducing muscle mass and `œÜ˜‡Ài}Տ>̈˜}…œÀ“œ˜iÃ̅>Ì play a vital role in lipolysis (fat “iÌ>LœˆÃ“®°/…ˆÃ…>Ã>È}˜ˆwV>˜Ì impact on your ability to change your body composition.” Yes, despite its primary function as a fat burner, overdosing on these products can actually reduce your ability to lose fat over time. Powell elaborates: “By increasing stress hormone output, fat burners and stimulants iˆVˆÌ>w}…̇œÀ‡yˆ}…ÌÀi뜘Ãi by increasing adrenaline output. While this will give you more energy and you’ll be able to work harder during this time, with the

A BETTER APPROACH Rather stick to the wide range of products that have been URGEKƂECNN[HQTOWNCVGFVQ work with female physiology and biology by delivering the right dose and combination of research-backed ingredients that have been proven to FGNKXGTTGUWNVU In closing, when it comes ̜Üiˆ}…̇œÃë>˜Ã]*œÜi recommends only using fat burners in the last third of the plan. “While I’m certainly not against the use of fat burners, I believe they’re only required when absolutely necessary. This is typically when body fat or weight loss has stalled, or slowed

rise in body temperature helping to boost your metabolism, over time this effect will diminish and your body will eventually stop responding in this way as adrenal fatigue sets in. You’ll very quickly start to burn out as endocrine organs and the metabolic hormones they produce become overworked, with the receptors in your brain responsible for signalling fat loss also becoming fatigued.” Faced with all these potential issues, it’s pertinent to ask yourself if you really want to dip into his stash of powerful thermogenic fat burners. You may get an initial boost, but as time progresses the metabolic costs on your body will mount, and you’ll ultimately pay the price with what can often be severe endocrine disruption and hormonal imbalances that will lead to a metabolic shutdown, which may eventually require medical intervention to treat.

It’s important that all other factors have been scrutinised and considered before planning the acute use of fat burning compounds.” He adds that this more conservative approach also ensures that there’s not enough time for your system to build up a tolerance to the products, which can negatively affect your hormones, metabolism and, ultimately, your success. “In this instance, it will give the individual the ‘push’ they need to adhere to their nutrition and training plan as they consistently feel good and perform better,” concludes Powell.

NULAID’S ‘SAFE EGGS’ PASTEURISED FOR PROTECTION Nulaid’s pasteurised ‘Safe Eggs’ offer a long shelf life and peace of mind. Safe Eggs have two major advantages over normal eggs – they are bacteria free and therefore protect against food-borne illnesses, most notably salmonellosis, and have an extended shelf life of up to 56 days at ambient temperature. The eggs, produced by hens fed an all-grain diet, are pasteurised using a technologically advanced heating method that does not boil the eggs but kills bad bacteria. Nulaid, which recently acquired Safe Eggs, has now relaunched under the Nulaid brand. Available at various Checkers stores in Gauteng, Western Cape and KwaZuluNatal.

Post-workout meal options HIGH-CARB, HIGH-PROTEIN OPTIONS: Banana and peanut butter smoothie:

Before moderate-intensity cardio: During longer cardio workouts, when intensity levels are low to moderate, your body has the ability ĂŒÂœ ivwVˆiÂ˜ĂŒÂ?Ăž Ă•Ăƒi v>ĂŒ >Ăƒ > ÂŤĂ€ÂˆÂ“>ÀÞ ĂƒÂœĂ•Ă€Vi Âœv fuel. You want to ensure that most of that fat is metabolised from stores in your fat cells, which necessitates that glycogen and insulin levels remain low. A good pre-workout meal in this case would therefore be one that is low in carbs, with some form of more easilydigestible fat, such as MCT oil. Any activity under two hours in duration can be fuelled by stored glycogen and fat alone, provided your intensity remains below threshold levels. Before intense cardio sessions: During intense cardio sessions, where you spend the majority of the time exercising above your aerobic threshold, your body’s primary source of fuel will be glycogen, which is derived from ingested carbohydrates. A highcarb, low-protein meal is recommended before these types of sessions, if they’re ÂŤĂ€ÂˆÂ“>Ă€ÂˆÂ?Ăž >ˆ“i` >ĂŒ LÂœÂœĂƒĂŒÂˆÂ˜} wĂŒÂ˜iĂƒĂƒÂ° Ă?>“Â?iĂƒ include track sessions, hill repeats, intervals or fartleks. It is best to consume meals 90 minutes to two hours prior to your session.

Pre-workout meal options LOW-CARB, HIGH-PROTEIN OPTIONS: Eggs and avo: Two hard-boiled eggs with half an avo delivers highly bioavailable protein and easily-digested fat. Omelette: An omelette is another tasty way to get in 2-3 eggs before a workout.

If, however, your aim is to lose weight and/or fat, it may be best to stick to a carb-free meal, with only a high-protein snack and a bit of fat ingested to limit muscle tissue breakdown.

TIPS: If you do not have my Healthy Girl No Bake Cacao Crunch Protein Ball Mix, substitute it for another cup of cacao or oat flour (youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need to increase the maple syrup as cacao is really bitter and needs some sweetness). You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to use macadamias, either. You can use any nut of your choice. However, I do find that macadamias add such a lovely creaminess. Goji berries can also be substituted for dried cranberries (sulphur-free is preferable), if you prefer.

The real discussion pertains to store-bought coconut water. Is it really, well, coconut water? Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s break it down... 80

Just like any concentrate-based juice sold in stores, fresh coconut water is heated and reduced to a syrup as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cheaper for them to import this concentrated liquid. In so doing, more coconut â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;waterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; can be transported per load and then reconstituted at its destination (as water would take up more space and more weight). From the syrup, water is then added prior to packaging.

WATER SOURCE Another warning sign KUYCVGTUQWTEGFHTQO mature coconuts. Young coconuts on the tree are usually green with an abundance of nutrient-dense water in the centre. Anyone who drinks coconut water straight from a coconut drinks it out of one of these young coconuts. As they begin to age, though, the nutrients in the water begin to seep into the meat of the coconut, and the water becomes less nutritious. This also happens when young coconuts are picked and allowed to lie on the ground in the sun for an extended period of time. While â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;matureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; coconuts might be used to make coconut oil, coconut milk and other coconut products, the coconut water from older coconuts is often discarded because it lacks nutrients and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t taste the same. However, as the popularity of coconut water has spiked, some companies have realised they can buy the water from mature coconuts

This is because most coconut water at the store is heat pasteurised, which literally means that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been heated to a very high temperature to kill bacteria and extend shelf life.

BUYING TIPS When browsing through your local fruit and veg shop or market, look for zucchini squash that

still has flowers attached as they offer the freshest and juiciest variety. A sleek, smooth and firm zucchini that has bright-coloured skin is what you want with every purchase.

A fully grown zucchini, which can reach nearly a metre in length, is referred to as a marrow.

My healthy lifestyle gave me a new lease on life.â&#x20AC;? In December she signed up with a personal trainer at Virgin Active, Milesh Morar who started training her and helping her with a strict diet to improve her physique and conditioning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My body wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t where I wanted it to be, but I could see subtle changes starting to happen, which excited me. However, it was my mind that did most of

the changing, along with my attitude toward life.â&#x20AC;?

STAGE PREP Carrie-ann embraced the transformation process, using the dogged pursuit of a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;new meâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to replace her alcohol addiction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As part of the process I set myself small, achievable goals and in January 2015 I decided to enter the IFBB Novice competition being held in Durban in March that year.â&#x20AC;?

It was on 10 June 2014 that Carrie-annâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transformation began, after she was involved in a serious motor vehicle accident. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had gone out that night and partied up a storm, as I usually did, but after the accident I knew I had to stop drinking. If I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it would only have been a matter of time before my life came to an abrupt and early end...â&#x20AC;? Carrie-ann explains how alcohol made her feel invincible, and how she would always turn to drinking to take off the edge when life became too intense. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would always say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;how could I ever cope without it?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;, but the accident was a turning

Persevere and believe in yourself, because you are capable of so much more than you think you are! experience and I was absolutely hooked on the sport from then on. My motivation levels climbed and my gym and cardio sessions became my top priority.” Since then Carrie-ann has gone from strength to strength, making the KwaZulu-Natal IFBB team in 2016, and receiving her provincial colours for the Bikini Fitness division. “My goal for 2017 is to achieve my best condition yet and win national colours.” To achieve this goal she is currently training under Grant Ramsey at Ramsey’s Conditioning, based at Virgin Active Pavilion. “He plans all my training and takes care of all my nutritional requirements. I believe that together, Grant and I will achieve great things as he’s an incredible trainer with a seemingly unlimited amount of industry knowledge.”

A NEW LIFE Through her pursuit of a better, healthier life, with the gym and the competitive stage as her greatest sources

of motivation, Carrie-ann says she has overcome her alcoholism and feels like she has got her life back. “The past two years have given me more than I could have ever imagined. I now …>ÛiVœ˜w`i˜Viˆ˜“ÞÃiv and have won the respect back from people whom I loved but thought I had lost due to my addiction and my behaviour. I also have a new lease on my health as I no longer suffer from high blood pressure or high cholesterol thanks to my healthy eating habits and all the exercise. I have to give thanks to God and to my family for helping me get my life back on track.” In closing, Carrie-ann says her aim in sharing her story was to hopefully reach out to others who may be battling through their own addictions or challenges, and inspire them to make a change. “I want to let them know that they too can do it, and that they are not alone. To all of you, persevere and believe in yourself, because you are capable of so much more than you think you are. The mind achieves what it believes, so set yourself a few goals and go out there and smash them. I’m living proof that you can change your life around.”
