health and fitness

with Matt Philpot

Matt is a Personal Trainer and Group Fitness

Instructor of ATP Health and Fitness Norwich and is dedicated to helping people change their lives through exercise and nutrition. After much success helping people to lose weight, he would like to share some top tips:

Top Ten Tips For Weight Loss Through Exercise 1. Heart rate must be elevated throughout exercise. 2. Incorporate some form of resistance training using weights, bands, dumbells e.t.c 2 – 3 times a week 30 – 60 minutes, this will increase the rate the body burns fat. 3. Perform all exercises in a full range of motion, this will work the muscles harder aiding the body to burn more fat. 4. Encourage interval training (a ratio of 2:1 steady state exercise followed by a short burst of intense exercise) for example, when it comes to running, run a steady state for one minute, followed by thirty seconds of sprinting, repeat the process several times for a minimum of 30 minutes. 5. Perform compound exercises (Squats, lunges, bent over row, chest press) working multiple muscle groups. 6. Change exercise programmes frequently (every 4 weeks) to avoid your body coming to a plateau, the human body needs to be shocked with new exercises working different muscles 7. Exercise with a partner so you can encourage and motivate each other, this

4  The Iceni Guide

will enable you to work harder resulting in burning more calories. 8. Monitor your own progress frequently, once current exercise programme becomes easier increase the amount of sets and repetitions you do. 9. Have a clear mind when exercising, stress and emotions can have a big affect causing you to fatigue quicker. 10. Set yourself challenges and targets this will make exercise a fun and enjoyable experience keeping you on track with weight loss. Results will be greater with a healthy eating. It’s wise to check with your doctor before starting any new fitness regime.

Gardening tips with Mike barker

T

he warm weather of August is a breeding ground for pests and diseases. Such as Aphids, Powdery mildew and slugs. Roses are susceptable, the correct feeding and watering with all plants will encourage resistance. Unusual leaf colour in plants is often a sign of nutrient deficiency. Spraying with pesticides should clear the Aphid and Mildew problem. Slugs like lush green foliage. Holes in leaves such as Hosta are evidence of the pest. Beer traps or pellets maybe a suitable prevention. Continue weeding in the garden as seedlings of weeds will be sprouting. Notice any unusual plants that have taken hold. I have been encountering Japanese Knot weed infestations. This requires professional advice and treatment. Pruning of Rambling roses, dead heading roses and clipping back of non leggy Lavenders will ensure compact and flowering shrubs. Take care when dealing with pruning of Euphorbia and Rhue as the sap will cause skin reactions at this time of year. Deciduous hedge cutting may take place now as growth of hedges slows. Whilst on Holiday place together outside plant containers, it’s easier to water them and also raises the humidity levels. August brings the last month for lawn weed killing and feeding. Mow lawns at the summer height. And water during dry spells. Leave the cuttings on the lawn during dry weather to retain moisture levels. September brings the start of the autumn lawn renovation and new lawn creation.

8  The Iceni Guide

Cut heights are raised; autumn feeds, scarification, aeration and top dressings procedures are to be considered. September also brings the start of planting out container shrubs. Evergreen shrubs can also be moved. Climbing roses can be pruned back and old wood cleaned out if flowering has faded. Feeding programmes on containerised stock should stop to avoid soft growth pre the winter months. Bulb planting programmes such as spring daffodils are to be started. Sedum plants are a favourite this month. Enjoy the garden!

SPORT - The summer so far

I

n the first week of July my cousin Charlie broke his leg playing football. And when I say ‘broke’ his leg, I mean BROKE his leg. I have seen the X-ray, and he’s lucky his bones weren’t sticking out through his skin. As he deals with six weeks off work, and several months without physical activity, I am reminded again of my attitude towards sports: “It is better to observe, than to participate.” Fortunately, us armchair fans have been spoilt in the past couple of months. Novak Djokovic played some of the best grass court tennis seen in years on his way to the Wimbledon title.

In Germany, attendance records were shattered at the Womens World Cup, as female footballers showed their male counterparts how to play the game in an entertaining

10  The Iceni Guide

and exciting way. (Surprise winners Japan dedicated their win to victims of the earthquake and tsunami that devastated their home country earlier this year.) In boxing, while David Haye’s poorly toe saw him lose in the rain in Germany, Amir Khan defeated a very tough opponent to remain World Champion, and the beautifully named TYSON FURY became the new no.1 British Heavyweight. Darren Clarke was an unexpected and popular winner of Golf’s British Open, and at the closest (and cleanest!) Tour de France for decades, Mark Cavendish became the first British winner of the coveted green jersey. With all that going on, I’ve barely noticed how bad the weather outside has been. And still to come this Summer? The World Athletics Championships from South Korea, England’s cricketers bidding to beat the World’s best Test team India, and the small matter of Norwich City in the Premier League… Get well soon, Charlie. Greg Powles is the presenter of North Norfolk Radio's 'Shortcut to Sport' programme every Saturday 2-6pm.

LISTINGS The Norwich Theatre Royal is alive with The Sound of Music from August 9-20 as the UK tour of the classic stage musical reaches the city. Heading the cast is Verity Rushworth (Emmerdale and the West End run of Hairspray) who plays Maria in the lavish and critically acclaimed production which tells the uplifting true story of the Von Trapp family’s flight across the mountains and features a host of classic songs including My Favourite Things, Do-Re-Mi, Climb Ev’ry Mountain and the musical’s iconic title track. If you are looking for something to do over the August Bank Holiday weekend, then head along to this

year’s Norwich Theatre Royal Open Day on August 27. You can see behind-the-scenes of the theatre exploring the areas normally closed off to the public and take part in lots of hands-on activities – and entry is completely free. Ending the month is the return of the popular family musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, which runs from August 30-September 3. Any Dream Will Do runner-up Keith Jack takes on the lead role in Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s sparkling family musical. The Biblical story of Joseph, his eleven brothers and the coat of many colours features unforgettable songs including Any Dream Will Do and Close Every Door To Me – and sees the cast joined on stage in the show by young people from the county’s Broadland Youth Choir.

Later in the month, one of Alan Bennett’s biggest hits comes to Norwich Theatre Royal. The Madness of George III runs There is a chance to catch a poignant musical which was the talk of the West End. End of the Rainbow charts the determined comeback by Judy Garland in 1968 while juggling a gruelling schedule of concerts with a drink and drugs addiction, and stars the Olivier Award-winning Tracie Bennett. Running from September 5-10, the show has won huge West End acclaim for its powerful performances and storylines. After a welcome Norwich return for popular diva Jane McDonald on September 11, the trials and tribulations of a family Christmas are explored in Alan Ayckbourn’s festive treat Season’s Greetings which runs from September

from September 19-24 and features the Olivier-Award winning actor David Haig in the lead role. With a huge cast, this epic production combines drama, politics and humour into a vivid theatrical portrait of English history. The month then draws to a close with the return of The Glenn Miller Orchestra (September 25), everpopular poet Pam Ayres (September 28) and the Norwich Theatre Royal debut of children’s TV favourites Numberjacks (September 29).

Teen perspective

Where are young people’s priorities? NR10 based teenager Sophie Leeson offers her views on recent events from a young person’s perspective...

young people think about these stories. When I talk to them about the death of Amy Winehouse they seem full of conversation and seem to know a lot more about her life,

On the 22nd July Norway suffered from a

massacre of fatal shootings some of which happened at a Norwegian Labour Party youth summer camp. This ended many young lives, leaving Norway grieving for the estimated 85 people killed, yet many more are being discovered. This is heartbreaking news, and we cannot even begin to contemplate what Norway is going through at this moment in time. A few days later on the 24th July, Amy

and also her death than I do. Then, I bring up the shootings in Norway and a blank, vacant look falls over their faces as they simply ask ‘What happened?’ This astounds me, the idea that young people know about the death of an apparently drug & drink addicted singer yet are clueless about the devastating killings which tore families apart.

Winehouse a singer from North London had been found dead in her apartment, the cause of death is still being treated as unknown. As devastating as this news is, Winehouse was never a role model for young people to look up to as she had problems with drugs and alcohol which lead her to spending a time in rehab. Being a teenager myself, I hear about what

18  The Iceni Guide

It begs the question ‘Where are young people’s priorities?’ Surely teenagers should be thoroughly informed about issues that are driving this society, rather than the death of some wasted talent. Personally, I believe that not enough young people care for what is happening in the world today, with a very small minority of youth watching the news.

Young people’s priorities must start taking shape, as we are the future generation.

The Distant Hours by Kate Morton Book Review by Kath Bennett

F

ifty years after it was posted, a letter arrives for Edie Burchill’s mother. Its effect is immediate and obvious, but the two have never shared their secrets and Edie remains in the dark about why this unexpected voice from the past has affected her mother so deeply. As she attempts to find out, she discovers a link between the letter and her favourite childhood story, The True History of the Mud Man – both of which have originated from Milderhurst Castle, still home to the mysterious and fascinating Blythe sisters. Morton cleverly juggles a number of narratives in this long and complex tale – Edie begins and ends the story, but in between several voices rise convincingly from the page. Each has their own tragedy: Percy Blythe, the eldest sister, inexorably linked to the castle; Saffy, her twin, dreaming of escape; Juniper, still waiting for her lost lover; and the lover himself, Thomas Cavill, doomed never to arrive. Their stories are true and tender and carefully, gradually revealed, with enough twists and turns to keep the reader guessing until the final pages. Equally vivid are the minor characters – even those like Raymond Blythe, who never actually appear to us.

20  The Iceni Guide

This is a book about love, madness, dreams and the supreme power of the written word. Once again, Morton shows how well she can pull the various threads of her tapestry together, drawing us on until we feel we are really there at Milderhurst, watching as the shadows form themselves into ghosts and suggestions. A haunting and beautifully told story, which merits reading and re-reading.


High Noon for the High Street? The poor state of the UK economy continues to bite. More well known brands are going to the wall – clothing brands, electronics companies, kitchen manufacturers, even Thornton’s are pulling off the high street. When no-one’s buying chocolate you know things are bad! All this gloom and doom in the headlines includes news that the housing market has slowed again and yet not a single estate agent seems to have been affected. Quite the opposite in fact, they appear to be springing up all over the place. How can this all add up? According to a recent article in the Guardian, in some parts of London estate agents only need to sell one house a year to keep themselves in Armani suits and Gucci loafers, because of the levels of commission they earn on high value homes. How can that be equitable?

So while other parts of the high street wilt, estate agents survive because the consumer is being given a bad deal and they are largely getting away with it. Or they have until now. House Revolution is a new breed of estate agent and a real alternative to the high street agent. We do absolutely everything a traditional agent does, but for half the cost. Our normal fee is 0.75% + VAT, which is half what a typical agent charges, and we still have the option of a flat fee of £999+VAT if you pay up front. If you’d like a free valuation of your home or just like us to start marketing your home, please call our customer service team on 0845 017 6060.

30  The Iceni Guide


Beat the recession with The Iceni Guide Testimonials: advertising works I run a local, independant, family owned business. Over the years we have advertised in a variety of magazines, with varied results. Recently, we placed a quarter page advert in the ‘Iceni Guide’. In comparison to other magazines, the response to this advert has been exceptional. The Iceni Guide advertisement has brought far more new customer enquiries and orders than anticipated. We have already agreed to further advertising with the ‘Iceni Guide’ and will definately recommend advertising in this magazine to other advertisors. Gary W, business owner.

Firstly, thank you for producing an excellent publication, secondly I would like to recommend one of your contributors. Over the festive period I unfortunately had my boiler break down, I originally contacted a number of plumbers who were either unavailable or who did not bother to return my calls. When I received my recent copy of The Iceni, I found the advert for SR Heating & Gas Service and spoke with Paul, I found him to be polite, professional and willing to carry out the required work, this was completed yesterday with the minimum fuss and I am now happy to say we have heat. Adrian Abbotts, OSR Recruitment.

Thought you might like some feedback on your excellent Iceni Guide. For months, we had been talking about getting our home freshened up, but had not found a suitable painter/decorator. In Iceni Guide, we then spotted an advertisement placed by Steve Anderson, who came, quoted, and duly did a first-class job. We could not have found a better professional anywhere - nothing was too much trouble. Eric & Barbara P, Haveringland.

I can’t praise you highly enough, the advertising has worked really well. Andy Mills, APM Blinds.
