    Knee pain sucks. In this article I am going to give you 7 reasons why your knees hurt. However before I get into it I want to say if you have any sort of knee pain then it is a good idea to go to your medical practitioner whether that be a Physio, Chiro, Osteo or whoever it is that you see.     There are literally hundreds of possibilities for why you have knee pain but the most common knee issues I see tend to be some form of Patellar Tendonitis.

Happy Thursday     In today's edition of Thursday's training I am going to share with you my number one tip for better movement and we are going to talk about HIIT that is High Intensity Interval Training.   Movement, it's such a fundamental part of our lives yet we often take it for granted.

Happy Tuesday I love strength training and let's face it life is easier when you're stronger. It's easier to carry the shopping, it's easier to carry the kids and it's easier to haul yourself up the Peak. It's what gives you the ability to run faster, jump higher and shed more body-fat   You can't build a house without a solid foundation and strength training is that solid foundation.   For my workout I did some Turkish Get Up (TGU) practice.   What is the Turkish Get Up? It's a highly effective, highly functional exercise that uses the whole body. T.G.U's require massive...
