Blood Pressure, Stress & Maximal Results
The pressure of circulating blood on the walls of blood vessels. Most of this pressure is done by the heart pumping blood through the circulatory system. It’s expressed in terms of the systolic pressure, maximum during one heartbeat over diastolic pressure, minimum in between 2 heart beats. It is measures in millimetres of mercury (mmHg) above the surrounding atmospheric pressure. One of the easiest things that I like to use that really shows an insight into someone’s health health is blood pressure. Research shows that 68% of all mortality risk, occurs with a systolic blood pressure between 120 on 140 (Altern, 2002). Now if yo [...] Read The Story

There is a lot of misconceptions around protein supplements but regardless of goal, training frequency, current body fat, gender, a protein powder may be a good addition to you diet. The most common things I get asked to do with protein powder is how much, when to use it, and what type. Before asking if you need a protein powder you need to know what your current protein intake is and what your protein intake should be in relationship to your goals. If you don’t know the answer to either of those questions, then working that out would be more beneficial than just buying a protein powder and hoping for the best. A good protein [...] Read The Story
Songkran is something that those of us who have been blessed enough to call Thailand home for a long duration of time know what to expect every year. However, Unit-27 is so blessed to show those who are new to Thailand every year what it's all about, and that's all about having fun, and really throwing yourself into the culture of Thailand. It's Thailands most famous festival, an incredibly important event on the buddhist calendar and marks the beginning of the traditional Thai New Year! Unit-27 is renowned for throwing a good competition, but this year, we really out did ourselves, with 4 incredibly (probably oversized) "floaties", [...] Read The Story
10 Lean Habits!
Lean, strong, fit and healthy people share these common habits. It’s not luck or genetics, it’s just a series of daily choices. These choices, once integrated with your lifestyle develop into a subconscious habit which in turn keeps you lean. Pick at least 8 of these habits below and practice them daily to get lean and (most importantly) stay lean. Getting lean can be easy. You can follow a boring, restrictive meal plan for 8-12 weeks, with little understanding of how or why you’re getting leaner. Then when the diet ‘finishes’ you go back to your previous habits and with it comes the weight gain. Sound familiar? Read [...] Read The Story
