STRETCHING IMPORTANCE- FOCUS ON FLEXIBILITY
FLEXIBILITY apart of muscle strength, muscle endurance, cardiovascular fitness and body composition is one of the 5 FITNESS COMPONENTS. It’s very important for the human body, without it our muscles would be stiff and the range of movements in the joints very limited. To improve flexibility we should STRETCH our body on the regular basis.

IS DIET IMPORTANT IN A SPORTSMEN LIFE?
When I started my sports career I never thought about the diet and at that time I didn’t realise how healthy eating can improve my strength and stamina.
I never thought what I ate cause actually I had everything… until the last year. That was the time when I decided to try something new. I wanted to test myself and to see what would happen if I started eating well. So I completely changed my diet into having only a healthy stuff, 5 meals per day, every 3 hours.
For now my daily menu is: Read more
EXTRACTS FROM THE TRAINING DIARY SO FAR!
Well it has been a busy few months since kicking off training in Dec after a relaxed Oct and Nov. The diary was not filled in during Nov but I did a little swimming, biking and running, taking it steady and just enjoying myself. I knew it would be a good idea to reset with the season goals I had in mind, I already knew what I wanted to do in September and luckily it all came together! I took 1 complete week off but with no injuries/niggles I did not feel I needed any more, just a very reduced volume for about 6 weeks to make sure I came into winter training fresh, motivated and ready.
The end of February will mark 3 months of proper training so far. Year on year I have increased total hours training a little over the months, the goal for February will be Read more

MUSCULAR ARMS – TWO THINGS A REAL TOUGH GUY MUST HAVE-
ADAM ‘JABI’ JABLONSKI
A pair of guns hanging off the shoulders – a dream of every male gym goer. However, you should remember that the arms are not only biceps, but also triceps which account for nearly 2/3 of their size. Why are “big guns” the Holy Grail of every bodybuilder? Everyone wants to have it, but not everyone knows how to get it. And what does the arm workout mean for you? Do you like it and find it necessary? I simply love to exercise this muscle group. Given the experience accumulated over time, today, as a bodybuilder competing in bodybuilding competitions, I must say that my approach to biceps and triceps workout has changed a lot. Below you will find a set of exercises for building guns of steel – powerful and rock-hard arms.
Steel-cord arms, also known as “guns” to gym goers, are a must-have for every bodybuilder. Whether you are wearing a T-shirt, elegant shirt or sleeveless, strong arms will stand out a mile. The arms are the first thing to be noticed by other gym goers and used to judge their fellow bodybuilders in the same manner as models are judges on a casting for a photo shoot. Read more
