Not only is the deadlift great for building full body muscle and fitness but it is also an amazing preventative exercise. It develops many dormant muscles that don’t get the action they need from other movements. It is as ‘functional’ and effective as you can get. It improves you in any sport, prepares you to survive anything that can come your way, and gives you a shredded back. That sounds like a triple play to me…so Tough Spotters start deadlifting today!Happiness

If You focus on results you will never change If you focus on change you will get results. Long-term health & strength require an investment in your body that might not pay noticeable dividends for weeks or months. It’s scary, but true. Of course, it’s no fun to keep looking in the mirror without seeing what you visualize when you close your eyes at night. When you feel yourself mouthing the words “It’s not working,” it can seem like the only options you have are drastic change or heading back to the couch. If you’re struggling to stay the course, don’t abandon all hope and give up on fitness just yet. You might just need some guidance and wisdom from a few fit minds.

The risk factors for adult chronic diseases, like hypertension and type two diabetes, are increasingly seen in younger ages, often a result of unhealthy eating habits and increased weight gain. Dietary habits established in childhood often carry into adulthood, so teaching children how to eat healthy at a young age will help them stay healthy throughout their life. The link between good nutrition and healthy weight, reduced chronic disease risk, and overall health is too important to ignore. By taking steps to eat healthy, you’ll be on your way to getting the nutrients your body needs to stay healthy, active, and strong. As with physical activity, making small changes in your diet can go a long way, and it’s easier than you think! Spotters Rock Get Your Tough Spot On

THE FRENCH FLAG

THE FRENCH FLAG -REVOLUTION & FREEDOM


I know what you’re thinking another grueling workout but not today REST DAY. Congratulations to our Tough Spotter Winners (Michelle. J & Luke. H)of time trials for last posted workouts they both received complementary personal training sessions with The Primal Unleashed Teaser Guide( full guide when we launch later this month) Although much prized, especially in sports, mental toughness is a term that is sometimes overused with regards to behavior during high-pressure situations. Our Stone Age ancestors didn’t need a big motivational speech to get them out of the cave and off to hunt for the necessities of survival. So what is mental toughness and how can we nurture and develop it in ourselves and others.  Motivation, that factor of wanting to achieve a specific goal more than anything else, is a key factor that separates champions from well non Tough Spotters
. Belief in yourself, the best athletes believe in themselves and as a result are better able to persevere through setbacks. Focus, mentally tough people don’t get distracted. They constantly stay on target by reminding themselves of what it is they are trying to achieve. Putting it into Practice Here’s how can we enhance our own levels of mental toughness. Set Realistic Goals – Goals are a roadmap that marks out how you’re going to get from where you are to where you want to be. For best results, think of the acronym of SMART goals. They should be Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely. Stay Positive, negative thought patterns only take away from your ability to attain your goals. Resolve to find the positive side to every situation, no matter how bleak it may seem. Internal Dialog, many of us get stuck in negative feedback loops in our heads (Sound Familiar). We criticize ourselves, focusing on negative outcomes and even berate ourselves as if we were the fans of an opposing team. Your thoughts eventually become your actions so make sure you don’t say anything to yourself that you wouldn’t say to anyone else. Focus on the Present, no matter what’s happened in the past, you can’t change it. You can only focus on the here and now. Worrying too much about the past or future detracts from your ability to focus on what you need to do to achieve your goals. When you make mistakes, let them go. When you do something fantastic, let it go as well. Both can negatively affect your level of attention to what you need to do right here, right now. As you work through these ideas, keep in mind that mental toughness is a skill, just as shooting a basketball or making a proper golf swing is a skill. You wouldn’t expect to master either of those skills immediately and you won’t master the art of mental toughness immediately either. Just keep working and try to get a little better each day more consistent, more confident and more focused the foolproof method of eventual success.

Unleash The Beast From Within

Training methods have changed dramatically in the last 10 years & for the better if I might say so myself. We are talking about unconventional training apparatus & routines, like heavy ropes, tyres, prowlers, rocks , kettlebells, sandbags, medicine balls together with body weight exercises. We at The Tough Spot Gym incorporate all the above to give our Tough Spotters a variety not to mention keep them on their toes. You might ask why I keep going on about this ? Because the results are there, research with trial & error have shown our body does not know muscle it knows movement. Unconventional training routines & workouts are usually known as caveman / cavewoman workouts. Let me elaborate a little on this in regards to using compound versus isolation exercises. Compound exercises are exercises that use more than one muscle group & run multiple joints in opposition to isolation exercises that limit one joint & one muscle group. An example of a multiple joint exercise would be the traditional squat, strengthening quadriceps,hamstrings, hip flexors & gluteus & working through the hip & knee-joint at the same time. A typical isolation exercise would be a preacher curl or dumbbell biceps curls that targets biceps & only moves the elbow joint. Even today still in gyms across our great nation we see the same thing day in day out an overweight guy walks on the treadmill for 4 minutes, then hits the chest press for a few sets, then he grabs the curl bar, stares into the mirror , then cranks out 2 sets of bicep curls. When he is done with that he grabs a squishy mat to do a few reps of crunches. If this sounds like you, you’re  in for a rude awakening ….. when you try our KATMA Strength & Conditioning Guide or take one of our group classes. You will learn to UNLEASH THE BEAST FROM WITHIN………
