So for our example above, assuming moderate activity (work out 3-5 days/wk),
As I mentioned at the beginning where your calories come from is also key in unlocking weight loss. So check out my other blog posts to find out what you should be eating, and what you should avoid at all costs if weight loss, or indeed health, is your goal.
You can also work with me personally to figure out a diet suited to you and your specific goals by contacting me through my Personal Training website www.MarkOneFitness.co.uk

I remember back at school we often did “fitness tests”. Even studying Sports Science at uni we went through these so-called fitness tests, and again on my Personal Training course.
The bleep test
Sit and Reach test (for flexibility)
The sit-up test etc.
These are all tests that have been used for years – but how effective are they?
The bleep test works. It’s a great way to test your general fitness level, and the key is in re-testing, NOT in the level you reach when you do it. (There are other considerations to bear in mind, but if all things remain unchanged, the re-test will show fairly accurately any gains or losses in fitness levels).
Sit and reach is pretty useless. It doesn’t show where your flexibility/inflexibility is coming from, since it is a whole body test.
And as for the sit-up/crunch test, that’s the reason for this post.
The rectus abdominus (the “abs” or 6-pack muscle) is a superficial muscle. Meaning, while it looks very nice, it doesn’t do much to support your body functionally. It won’t go far in helping with your stability, strength, or anything else... it will however help give you awful posture and back pain if overtrained.
Due to the attachments of the muscle in the body, if you do 100’s of sit-ups/crunches, it will pull your chest downwards towards your stomach, rounding your back and producing awful, and unattractive, postural distortions. As well as rounded shoulders and tight hip flexors (which are a problem many people face these days anyway, without these awful exercises reinforcing the posture!).
Obviously, as well as looking awful, this poor posture can cause all sorts of problems, predominantly in the shoulders, neck and back. Joints out of alignment will cause pain, stiffen up/lose mobility, and cause muscle imbalances which can lead to injury.
With back pain being as common as it now is, and all the hype about “core” training, more and more people are turning to these exercises in order to work their core. As well as the belief that thousands of sit-ups will help lose the belly (which obviously we know it won’t).
Well it’s not working. As I said earlier – the rectus abdominus is a superficial muscle, meaning it doesn’t work to stabilise and support the spine. In fact, it works to flex the spine. That means it’s actually going to make things WORSE, by exacerbating the problem. Plus, all the time you spend working your abs, you’re NOT spending doing the exercises that WILL help!
In order to reduce back pain, and pain in any other areas, you need to work on balancing the muscles across your body and re-aligning the joints.
If you want to work your “core”, you need to focus on exercises that will strengthen the deeper muscles of your trunk, such as the Transverse Abdominus and Obliques.
Planks, side planks, and side raises are good exercises for this, but sticking to large, full-body movements will make sure you’re activating your core in a functional way, instead of isolating the movements.
In short, you don’t need to specifically work on your core. If you’re using good exercise selection, your core will be working the whole time. (And as for losing the belly, it’s these large movements that are going to burn the calories, not small, isolated movements like crunches or bicep curls.)
Crunches will lead to imbalances, poor posture, back pain, and potential injury. You might have a nice looking 6-pack, but it won’t look good on a hunch-back who looks like they’re in pain!
For more ideas on exercises you can do that will work your “core” without causing back problems and muscle imbalance, check out my youtube channel www.youtube.com/markonefitness

If you’ve ever heard that you shouldn’t re-use plastic bottles, then you’ve heard right.
There’s been a lot of press about how many plastic bottles can leach plastics into your drink, maybe not so much recently, but over the years the articles have accumulated.
Well it’s true to say that if you can taste plastic in your drink – you’re drinking plastic. But what if you can’t taste it?
The numbers on the bottom of plastic bottles (usually in the little recycling triangle) like the ones below are there to inform you what type of plastic the bottle is made from.
I won’t go into great detail as to why bottles are required to have these numbers, I’ll just skip to the bit you need to know...
If your bottle has either the number 2, 4, or 5, then it’s fine (in theory – although I have read that any number under 5 is best avoided).
However, the type most commonly used is number 1 – Polyethylene terephthalate
If you check your water/fizzy drinks/juice bottles, this is the number you’re likely to see, and these are definitely only recommended for one time use. DO NOT re-use these bottles.
What about those nice colourful gym bottles given out as freebies by all sorts of companies? Well you tell me – number on the bottom aside, they always seem to taste like plastic to me.
You may also read that number 7 bottles (we’re really not being left with much here are we?!) can leach BPA (Bisphenol A) into your drink.
Bisphenol A is a xenoestrogen which is a known endocrine disruptor – this means it disturbs the hormonal messaging in our body (not good), and has been linked to cancer, decreased testosterone in men, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. And is particularly harmful to babies and young children.
So since we can’t drink from pretty much any of these numbered bottles, what do we do?
1 – Use a glass bottle
Using a glass bottle will eliminate all of these problems (as well as save on the landfill!), but isn’t always practical – you don’t want to drop a glass bottle, obviously! Not to mention they’re not as easy to find as you might think.
2 – Get a BPA-free plastic bottle
This is probably the most practical option. Plastic bottles are more durable and won’t smash into a thousand pieces if you happen to drop them.
There are plenty of places to get these if you’re looking for them.
The one I use is the Kor One (which you can get here in the UK or Europe, or here in the US)
This isn’t the cheapest option – but it looks pretty cool! Plus, some of the money from each purchase is donated to an environmental organisation. So you’ll be doing your bit for the environment too.
3 – Use a stainless steel bottle
Again, this eliminates the above problems since they are free from BPA and other toxins.
And one of the sentences they use on their website sums it up – “What you put into your Klean Kanteen is exactly what comes out of it.”
They also donate a proportion of the sale price to environmental organisations through their 1% for the planet scheme.
You can see some studies on the effects of BPA on our endocrine system here: Environmental Health Perspectives Journal
Now go get yourself a drinking bottle that isn’t going to poison you!

So with that in mind, here are my top ten tips to leading a healthier lifestyle.
1. Drink only filtered or bottled water, and drink it from a BPA-free plastic bottle, or from a stainless steel or glass bottle. The plastic bottles that most people use leach plastic into your drink, and if you can taste plastic – you’re drinking plastic! This, and the amount of crap that’s in tap water (see video below) might not kill you – after all, it hasn’t up til now – but it WILL have an adverse effect on your health, and you may have problems that you haven’t even thought could be down to the water you’re drinking.
If you drink this EVERY day, the effects of it will build up over time and could cause all sorts of problems.
2. Drink at least 1 litre of water per 50lbs body weight. For most people this is 2-3litres. Carry a large bottle around with you and make sure you drink from it regularly to meet your quota!
If you’re not used to adequately hydrating yourself, you may find yourself rushing to the toilet every ten minutes when you start. Add a pinch of sea salt to your water. Just a pinch (if you can taste it you’ve added too much. And no, table salt won’t do!). This will help with electrolyte balance and you won’t be rushing to the loo quite so often.
3. Choose the HEALTHIER option. You don’t have to eat like a rabbit to be slim and healthy. Just make sure that when you’re choosing your meals, you choose the healthier option. It’s not rocket science, but if you consistently choose the healthier option, you’re saving yourself from a LOT of extra, unnecessary carbs/fat/toxins.
4. Take nutritional supplements. This isn’t a replacement for food, and doesn’t mean you can stop eating your greens, it’s just an extra boost to your diet that will help keep you healthy. A good quality multi-vitamin, fish oil/Omega-3, and a green drink will go a LONG way to keeping you fighting fit. But don’t be cheap - you get what you pay for with supplements so get the most expensive one you can afford – this is your health we’re talking about after all!
5. Get enough sleep. Sounds simple, but all sorts of chemical and hormonal processes go on while you sleep that are essential for balancing out your body and everything that’s gone on during the day. Make sure you get enough quality sleep. Go to bed earlier, and get up at the same time every morning (even at weekends if possible) – this will help to get your body clock into a rhythm and will help your sleep patterns no end. Also, make sure you sleep in a dark room, NO light whatsoever – that little standby light on your telly – cover it! Got an alarm clock that lights up or flashes – change it! And, this is very important, don’t take your phone to bed with you! – the electro-magnetic signals and radiation given off by your phone disrupt your sleep pattern, AND, subconsciously, leaving your phone on tells your mind that you’re expecting a call/text and your mind won’t fully rest.
If you use your phone as an alarm, BUY AN ALARM CLOCK! (Or most phones now will allow you to turn them off, and the alarm will still go off).
6. Exercise daily. This doesn’t have to be a 10 mile run, or a 2 hour workout in the gym. It all adds up. Even if you only have 15 minutes spare, use it effectively. It might not seem worth it, but if you’re doing it EVERY day, it’ll soon add up and make a BIG difference to your health and fitness.
If you are short on time and want some intense 15-minute workouts that’ll boost your metabolism and leave you burning calories all day, you can check out my book Fab In 15 Minutes – it’s got 20 workouts, all 15-20 minutes long, that you can do at home with little or no equipment.
Check it out here: www.FabIn15Minutes.com
7. Get some sun! Not only will the fresh air do you the world of good – getting away from the false, air-conditioned environment many of us work in – but sunlight is essential for health.
Get at least an hour or so of sunlight every day. And if you really can’t (but seriously – can you really not go outside for your lunch break? (and NOT for a cigarette!)), then take a good vitamin D supplement. This would also be a good idea in the winter months when the sun isn’t so forthcoming!
Sunbed’s DO NOT count and have been proven time and again to be bad for you. AVOID THEM! Get some real sunlight.
8. Take time for yourself. This may sound strange, but stress is one of the biggest causes of disease. A body without stress won’t get sick. If you can take any amount of time out to just relax, take your mind off things and appreciate all that you have, then you’ll be on your way to relieving stress.
Meditation, yoga, tai chi, breathing exercises are all good. Or you could just take 30 minutes out to sit and relax, go for a walk, listen to some relaxing music... ANYTHING that relaxes you.
This is so powerful, yet consistently overlooked by 99% of people. Whether you believe it or not, give it a go for a week or two and see what happens... I dare you.
9. Cut back on watching TV. Not only will the extra time you have enable you to exercise, enjoy more time with family and friends, prepare healthier meals and a million other things, but it will also save you from mind-numbing TV shows which really don’t do you any favours or stimulate your brain.
Select the main programmes that you really can’t miss, and scrap the rest. You could read a book instead!
10. Laugh! You’ve heard the saying that laughter is the best medicine. Well it really is! Laughing has many effects on the body including stress relief, improving immune function, strengthening core muscles and your diaphragm...
To see more of the effects laughter has on our bodies, take a look here:
And a bonus number 11 - Take your shoes off. There are so many benefits to walking barefoot. Our feet have evolved without shoes! I’m not saying take a stroll down the high street barefoot, but when you’re at home, in the garden, in the park, or anywhere that’s safe to take your shoes off.
Not only will this strengthen your feet, ankles, knees, hips and back, but it could also help alleviate knee, hip and back problems.
I personally do ALL of my training barefoot, inside or outside (when the gym don’t moan at me), and if I do wear shoes, I wear the thinnest, least supportive ones I can find (such as Vibram FiveFingers, or some cheap water shoes – very thin, flexible soles, no support or cushioning etc.)
To read more on going barefoot, you can read an article I wrote a couple of years ago (called Barefoot Is Best) here:
If you can do all of these things I assure you you’ll feel ten times better than you do now (unless you’re already doing them, in which case I congratulate you!).
To your Health!

Here is a list of just a few of the chemicals routinely added to our water supply:
Even if the water leaves the source in a relatively clean state, don't forget that your water travels through pipes, which may have been underground since Victorian times. It is almost impossible for the water not to become contaminated by something undesirable.
Contaminants in Tap Water
Tap water is treated with a large number of chemicals in order to kill bacteria and other microorganisms. In addition, it may contain other undesirable contaminants like toxic metal salts, hormones and pesticides, or it may become contaminated by chemicals or microbes within pipes (e.g. lead, bacteria, protozoa).
Typical Tap Water Content:
Testing Your Own Water
You can assess the quality of your water by testing for Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) with a TDS meter which reads the TDS instantly and gives a read-out in parts per million (ppm) TDS. Generally, water with a TDS of 500 ppm or more is regarded as unfit for consumption. Most tap water ranges from 150 to 420 ppm TDS. A Reverse Osmosis system typically produces water with a TDS of 90 - 95% of the incoming water.
Fluoride in water
Another very important health hazard is fluoride, which is added by some water authorities in the UK, and is also present in many toothpastes and mouthwashes. Around 10% of the UK’s water supply is fluoridated, despite a huge and ever-growing body of evidence that the science behind this mass medication programme is questionable to say the least.
Fluoridation of water is banned in all other European countries. (see the Flouride Action Network - Statements from European Health Authorities).
For still more information on the dangers of fluoride, visit these links:

Chlorophyllin is a key derivative of Chlorophyll, with research demonstrating that it possesses several potential health benefits.
2 - Is an Antioxidant
Scientists believe that a portion of Chlorophyll's therapeutic capabilities lies in its capacity to neutralise free-radicals and limit oxidative damage.
3 - Acts as an Anti-Cancer Agent
Several animal and in vitro studies have shown that Chlorophyll (or its derivatives such as Chlorophyllin) possess anti-carcinogenic properties - the ability to prevent or slow Cancer. Successful findings have included several types of cancer, including liver, stomach and colon cancers.
4 - Protects Against Toxins
Scientists have repeatedly found that Chlorophyll and its derivatives can protect against toxins and the effects of those toxins, including abnormal cell death and carcigonesis (onset of cancer).
5 - Supports Health of Blood Cells
Researchers believe that Chlorophyll improves the health of blood cells, and that it may increase the uptake of oxygen in the blood. Some experts attribute this to some similarities between Chlorophyll and hemoglobin.
6 - Increases Energy Levels
Partially due to the blood-friendly attributes of Chlorophyll and its ability to detoxify, Chlorophyll may allow the body to optimize its energy production.
7 - Enhances Immune Function
Studies indicate that Chlorophyllin was able to increase the number of and activity of various immune cells, including T cells, B cells, and macrophages. These cells are some of the crucial components of the body's immune defences.
8 - Supports Cardiovascular System
Due to Chlorophyll's antioxidant properties, it may help prevent the oxidation of LDL (the "bad" cholesterol), thereby lowering the risk of cardiovascular disease and related conditions.
9 - Minimizes Side Effects of Chemotherapy
Scientists have shown that Chlorophyllin is successful in thwarting the undesired side effects of the chemotherapeutic agent cyclophosphamide.
10 - May Reduce Risk of Kidney Stones
Research suggests that Chlorophyll may help protect against calcium oxalate stone disease (one variety of kidney stones).
11 - Eliminates Odour
Findings from different studies indicate that Chlorophyll may eliminate or reduce odours associated with colostomies and urinary disorders.
12 - It's Alkalising
Many studies now have proven the benefits of alkalising the body, reducing the acidic environment needed for disease and parasites to thrive in. By drinking Chlorophyll, you are helping to neutralise the acid and prevent many health problems relating to the acidic environment.
How can Chlorophyll help prevent disease? First of all, Chlorophyll appears to have an affinity for blood (which may be explained by some similarities between it and hemoglobin cells). Some research suggests that Chlorophyll can increase oxygen uptake in the blood, which can increase energy, relieve fatigue, and improve certain blood disorders.
Chlorophyll also supplies the much-needed micronutrient magnesium, which is lacking in today's common diet, and can contribute to increased energy levels.
It also possesses antioxidant capabilities, which may account for some of its reported benefits.
Finally, Chlorophyll is a vital component of the plant kingdom. Since we know that a diet high in plant-based foods significantly reduces the risk of a wide range of diseases, it can be assumed that the Chlorophyll intake plays a part in that risk reduction.
I rarely drink water without this now!

Come to think of it, every woman needs a good woman.
What am I talking about?
These are all essential for health, and without any one of these, you're pushing your luck for staying healthy.
Water is the most essential element and we can't go for more than a couple of days without water before our body starts to shut down.
Most people are wlaking around in a constant state of dehydration, and as a result of this, suffer joint pain, back pain, headaches, and limited function of every organ in their body. Inadequate hydration has so many effects on the body I can't even begin to list them.
Suffice to say that it is imperative that you stay properly hydrated for your body to function properly.
A good rule of thumb is to drink 1 litre of water per 50lbs bodyweight.
And no, tea, coffee, alcohol, fizzy drinks, ANYTHING other than water just won't do.
Oxygen is again, essential for life. I feel like I'm insulting your intelligence just by pointing this out! Yet as obvious as this is, people don't breath properly!
Yes, we breath, but we don't breath fully, using our entire lungs and abdomen. Long, deep breaths of clean, fresh air are what we need for health, not the shallow, hunched over breaths we take most of the time.
Take time out every day to take 10 or 15 deep breaths. Take a deep, belly breath in for 5 seconds, hold for 10, and exhale for 10.
This will help to oxygenate your blood, improve lymph drainage (clear the crap out of your body), and expand your ribcage.
Sounds simple, but do this every day and it WILL have an impact.
On top of that, try to pay attention to your breathing. If you find yourself slumped over a computer desk, sit up, and take deep breaths for as long as you can remember to. Then when you find yourself slumped over again, repeat! Do this until your body remember to sit tall and BREATHE!
Minerals - All of the biochemical reactions that take place in your body require minerals, they are also required to maintain proper cell function.
Unfortunately most of the foods that plague our diets these days are severely deficient in vitamins and minerals, meaning we're left devoid of these valuable minerals.
This leaves our bodies chemically imbalanced, and makes it impossible to maintain optimal health.
Simply eating a healthier diet, with more fresh vegetables and fruit will help, but a good mineral supplement such as Colloidal Minerals will also go a long way towards helping.
Alkalinity - This one you may not have heard of, but research shows that disease, fungus, parasites and many other health problems like cancer, heart disease, premature ageing, obesity, allergies, fatigue, can all come from a having an acidic body.
In fact, most diseases (including cancer), and all parasites (which studies suggest up to 85% of people have) NEED an acidic environment to live.
So if you can make your body alkaline, instead of acidic, the health benefits are almost immeasurable!
And this is easily done by following a healthy diet, and using a green drink such a Liquid Chlorophyll, which are alkaline and will help to shift your pH levels back to where we want them. Aside from that, eat plenty of alkalising foods.
You can find out more about alkaline diets here.
Nutrition - Good nutrition is essential to health and wellbeing. It encompasses all of the above and more.
You need to be well hydrated, obtaining all of the essential vitamins and minerals from your diet (even if that means supplementing to fill the gaps), and cutting out ALL foods and drinks that are detrimental to your health.
If you haven't downloaded it yet, enter your name and e-mail in the box on the right of this page, and I'll send you some healthy eating hints and tips that will steer you in the right direction.
If you're interested, I use the following supplements on a regular basis, along with daily exercise and a healthy, balanced diet: -
Liquid Chlorophyll (to clean blood and alkalise body)
Omega Blend (I'm sure you've heard of the benefits of Omega 3 fatty acids...)
Super Supplemental Multi-vitamins (to help supplement what's missing from our food)
Vitamin C (just get the best one you can afford, ideally with Lyceine)
Vitamin D (Same as above, best you can afford - or just get more sun!)
I'm sure now no-one will disagree that everyone needs a good WOMAN. So go get one! :)

Until recently I'd only "dabbled" in yoga. Taking a class here and there, when I get the chance.
But earlier this year I started to take more of an interest and recorded a couple of those follow-along-at-home yoga programmes on Sky. And I liked!
Now these aren't my favourite programmes to follow, but they piqued my interest and got me looking into the different styles a bit more.
Having always done Martial Arts, and being a big fan of Scott Sonnon's work, I quickly found a couple of styles that I preferred (though I'm still not sure of what their particular names are).
Being an active person, I'm more into the "flowing" yoga, moving swiftly and smoothly from one posture to the next in sequence. Rather than holding a position for 10 minutes until you get bored or fall asleep (whichever comes first!).
And of all of these, there are a couple I've found that I highly recommend.
Simon Low's Yin Yang Yoga (The Yang sequence)
Trudie Styler's Warrior Yoga
And most notably, Prasara Yoga, from CST coach Ryan Hurst.
This is delivered electronically (download) and has 5 "Flows" - Wind, SeeSaw, Cricket, Ocean and Vine.
I can't recommend this enough, it has instructional videos for every section as well as follow-along sequences, with 3 difficulty levels so you'll be able to follow along whatever your current ability.
You also get a course manual explaining all of the moves and sequences too.
I bought this a couple of weeks ago and love it. If you're looking to get into yoga, then you should start here! (Ok, maybe this one's a bit more challenging than the previous two suggestions, but you've got to challenge yourself hey?!)
Take a look at their website here: Prasara Yoga
and I highly recommend you give it a go!
If you're not as convinced as I am that this will benefit you in numerous ways, just ask for a refund within 60 days! NO RISK at all!
And you can even download the video's to your iPod or iPhone to take to the gym with you!
I've definitely noticed an improvement in my flexibility since doing yoga, and, although some are still very challenging, am getting to grips with the postures and movements and feeling more and more benefit as I do.
It's not just for old people and hippies, Yoga really IS for everyone. If you can keep your joints and spine healthy, the benefits will be priceless! Less aches and pains, more freedom of movement, and you'll feel great after each session.
I really, REALLY recommend giving it a go. And the options I've listed above are, I believe, a great place to start.
Let me know how you get on.

Do we just get fat and lazy? Or does something more happen that makes it harder for us when we DO eventually decide to move?
I think "The Fuzz Speech" explains this pretty well, and shows why I advocate DAILY movement/exercise, yoga, and manual therapies like massage.
The same holds true for injuries - it may be a good idea to rest for the initial day or two after the injury, but the sooner you can get moving again (doesn't have to be hard exercise, just move), the better.
Here's the Fuzz speech:
And here, as promised, is (I won't say THE, but AN) antidote. Frank Forencich is a movement coach and works along the same principals that I believe in. He's written a number of books that are well worth a read, particularly "Play as if your life depends on it".
He may look like a loony in this video, and you might look like a bit of a nutcase doing it, but who cares?! It's good for you, feels great, and if you're really bothered, you can do it in the privacy of your own home each morning to start your day!
Do this daily and you'll soon start to feel the difference!

Many people take multi-vitamins with no idea what they're actually supposed to be getting from them, and this could be the reason that well-known companies are making a LOT of money selling cheap supplements.
I can assure you that if they're cheap to buy, they're cheap to make - which means cheap ingredients, and most importantly NO RESULTS!
Your health should be your first priority. People have no problems paying the extra for an upgrade to their car, or the bigger, better TV etc., yet when it comes to supplements for their health, they choose the cheapest option available.
Are you one of these people?
If so, it's probably not your fault. You've taken supplements before and not noticed any difference, so why pay more?!
Well hopefully I've explained that (though very briefly) above.
For the record, the supplements that I recommend are Nature's Sunshine Products, they're all natural and organic or wild-crafted ingredients. And although they're more expensive than your average supermarket or high street brands, it's for good reason - THEY WORK!
A good friend of mine has also recently pointed me in the direction of Fulvic Acid.
Watch the video's below, where he's interviewing Peter Gouge, the Technical Director of The Fulvic Acid Company.
Hopefully you'll learn why it's important to go for quality rather than price when it comes to supplements.
You can visit the Fulvic Acid Company's website at www.thefulvicacidcompany.com
You can also visit the Nature's Sunshine website and take the free health analysis questionnaire to find out which of your body systems might need strengthening, and what supplements are best for you, rather than guessing!
You can take the analysis here

Apologies for the lack of posts recently. But this should be a good one to get back into things again.
I recently (today in fact) had an e-mail from someone asking his mailing list for inspirational video's that he can show his students, which reminded me of a few that I've seen that really get you thinking.
Take a look, if none of these inspire you, then I don't know what will...
I hope you can draw some inspiration from these, especially this time of year when people tend to fall off the wagon with regards to their new years resolutions.
Stick with it. You can't win the game if you don't play. So if your goal is weight loss, better fitness, or ANYTHING - you need to do something about it!
