As the governments around the world start to ease the COVID-19 lock-down restrictions and allow people back into the gym, there will be many people scratching to get back to their best straight away. For the past few months many of us have been restricted to strength workouts with little equipment and resources making it difficult to train the way we would like to. Now that the gyms are beginning to open there is a real danger that many will over-train and try to go ‘from zero to hero’ in the first week! This is a common mistake we see all the time when people return to the gym after an extended holiday or break and try to get back to their best instantly. Any elite sporting athlete knows they need a schedule to gradually ease their body back into peak form, for if they try to rush the process, they risk getting injured. In this article we asked our trainer Nathan to explain how he went about the process of getting back to full strength and fitness once he started training again.

I love pasta and lasagne, but since I started following the Keto Diet back in 2019 I found I was unable to eat them the way I had always had eaten them before. I needed to find ways to make these meals healthier by substituting vegetables for the pasta to give me the low carbohydrate option I followed with my new eating method that has worked so well. What I discovered was that if I use zucchini slices as my pasta sheets I could create an amazing lasagne dish that tasted just as good as the pasta dish. I created a simple to read info-graphic to show you exactly how I do this.

There is no doubting that life in lock-down has disrupted all our lives in a massive way, and one of the biggest problems to emerge from this is weight gain. It is difficult to say just how widespread and exactly how much weight people have gained over the past year as there is little research confirming this at the moment. In a poll of more than 1,000 U.S. readers of WebMD, nearly half of the women and almost one-quarter of the men said they'd gained weight “due to COVID restrictions.” A separate poll of 900 international readers found more than half of men and about a third of women reporting weight gain. There has also been a stack of memes and posts circulating on social media using the term #quarantine15, indicating people have put on 15 pounds of weight during the lock-down! With all the gyms about to open again there will be many people looking to get back into shape again as quickly as possible. While this sounds like a good idea, there is a real danger to their health in trying to do this too quickly, as people ignore many of the other important factors in their attempt to exercise their way into good shape. In this article I will explain why it is a much better idea to take it slowly, and I will show you exactly how to go from “zero to hero” with your health and fitness.
