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 [...]

Protein Powder

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 [...]

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 [...]

5 top tips to get the most out of training at Unit-27!

One of the common mistakes keen trainees make when arriving on the Soi is thinking more is better. We understand you want to maximise your time here, but your training is only as good as your ability to recover from it. Remember during the workout is not when we are making progress, just creating the stimulus for progress to be made, it’s when we get outside the gym, we start the recovery progress and make the positive adaptions we’re looking for such as improved fitness, strength levels, muscle mass etc. From a calorie burning standpoint more classes will burn more calories initially however try to look at the week as a whole not an [...]

Dont Skip Leg Day Training Unit 27 Fitness Phuket Thailand

DO NOT MISS LEG DAY!

Who knows that type of person who wears the singlet, gets that pump on walks around the gym think they’re hot s**t, however conveniently wears long shorts to hide their suspicious chicken legs? I think we’ve all seen those people in our life time and if you haven't you have not been to the gym in some time. When asked they’ve blurted out the reason being that “I’ve gotta get that pump man!”, or “My knee’s hurt when I squat”, when in reality, the majority of the time these are actual excuses and why is that? Well, because it’s damn hard work training the lower extremity of the human body, and some people just d [...]

Flexibility And Fitness Training By Unit 27 Fitness Phuket Thailand

Flexibility – What Is The Benefit?

Flexibility is the the range of motion of your joints or the ability of your joints to move freely. Furthermore the mobility of your muscles and the allowance of movements around the joints. Flexibility is something that always comes up during a coaches’ brief, or pre gym talk, and it can be a great hindrance to individuals who’re looking to get started on their fitness journeys, but do not fear, it’s not something that can’t be fixed. Almost every athlete, whether beginner or elite, will partake in flexibility work prior to working out, to prevent injury and give themselves the best chance of performing. As a wh [...]
