Ladies, the weather is heating up which means bikini season is just around the corner! There’s already temptations of replacing gym sessions with beach walks. However, giving up resistance training could cause more damage than you think! Why resistance train?
Resistance training is crucial to maintaining a proper fitness routine. Your muscles will waste away without it. Once you’ve hit your twenties, muscle loss increases rapidly unless you work to maintain or build it. if you don’t use it, you lose it.
Only a few weeks off resistance training can cause muscle loss (if you’ve ever broken a bone you would already know this!).
Being a personal trainer I’m in the gym all day most days so my energy output is pretty high compared to most. My long term goal at the moment is to compete at IFBB in the bikini division in October next year, so at the moment, being in off season my trainings all about GROWTH. Building up my glutes, hamstrings, upper back and shoulders to create the X shape that the judges look for on the day. I ride my bike the 15 minutes to and from Surry hills everyday to get my body moving before my first client, I also don’t like public transport much and who wouldn’t want to be able to eat a bit more due to the extra output! I also do my strength training 5 days a week which consists of 3 leg focused days and 2 upper body days. My gym, Fitness Playground also offers Pilates and yoga so I try and get in to one of those a week to ground me a bit.
Bianca and Yasmin Wilshin are two passionate creatives from Newport Beach in Sydney. Both determined high-school graduates who completed their university degrees at UTS, Yasmin majoring in finance and Bianca in Marketing (Ying and Yang!, right?!). Whilst completing their degrees, Bianca set up The Hessian Collection, a swimwear business that had been a dream of theirs for many years. Since graduating, they’ve both accumulated work experience in their fields, however, Bianca’s business has also gained major traction, particularly amongst Sydney’s northern beaches ladies. So their decision to leave their full-time 9 to 5 jobs, and create a unique swimmer company together has been an inevitable outcome.
These twins have worked extremely hard to end up where they are today, but they certainly aren’t stopping here. The rebranding of Bianca’s business, The Hessian Collection, to a company owned by both twins now called Archie and Wolf represents a new unified phase for the brand. With both sisters focusing on the brand, the sky really is their limit. Stay tuned!
Working towards your neutral posture, as I mentioned above, promotes balance within the opposing muscle groups and leads to the muscular and skeletal system working free of dysfunction. Meaning that when one muscle group is too short, it creates a lengthening effect on the opposing muscle groups. Eventuating in these lengthened muscles to working overtime to bring the body back to neutral because the shortened muscles have pulled the body out of this neutral alignment.

The gorgeous Jazmin leary is here to share her tips on how to improve digestion. Take it away Jaz...
Our gut is absolutely central to health and overall wellbeing.
The term gut basically refers to digestion. Digestion is important for breaking down food into nutrients, which the body uses and absorbs for energy, growth, and cell repair. Food and liquid must be changed into smaller molecules of nutrients before the blood absorbs them and carries them to cells throughout the body.
