Sometimes it can feel like there is not enough time in the day to get everything done, but prioritising, rather than sacrificing your sleep will give you more energy to get things done and allow you to thrive.
No excuses, own your sleep! Quality and Quantity are important. Train hard, sleep harder
Squats are great, we can do them anywhere in multiple ways, in this guide we will cover a bunch of variations that we use which allow you to balance your body and squat using different equipment.
We cover many types of squats, from weighted ones to goblet squats to jumping squats, there are benefits of doing the variations as well as keeping things interesting.
Good squat form allows for the exercise to be fully effective, as well as preventing injury. Consistent bad technique can become a habit and reinforce poor movement patterns which can wear joints, ligaments and muscles in a way which can cause injury.
At Witterings Fitness we focus on technique first, then once we can consistently do that technique, we can increase intensity (speed or weight). Light weights are used when learning so we can master the basics, no need to go too heavy too soon. Not being able to anything because of injury is far worse than lifting a weight too light, having said that it is good to be able to push yourself. Getting a good coach is a great way of knowing if you are pushing yourself enough without risking injury.
We just watched 'The Social Dilemma' a Netflix documentary highlighting issues with social media, phones and the effects it has on our lives. With a huge increase in the use of social media and the clear links with mental health, we thought we would share some of the issues with you so you can be aware of how social media and your phone can affect your health. We will of course be sharing it via our own social media channels, hopefully in a responsible way!
In the documentary ex-employees of various social media companies shared past experiences of how they worked and how they encourage 'user' engagement. Almost everybody had ethical issues with how the company ran their app, most of which was the reason why they left the business.
Some employees wouldn’t let their children use the apps!
