This hilarious Star Wars parody, at least for Star Wars fans, promotes organic vegetables. In an epic battle, Cuke Skywalker and Obi Wan Cannoli take on Darth Tater.
It's a great parody and a very funny clip, but on a serious note I was chatting to a few colleagues in our staff room the other day & was saying I like to get lean beef mince usually 5%, my body fat is roughly 10% right now, so I wouldn't want to consume 20% or even 15% meat products which is what they can sell in a lot of supermarkets stores like Tesco, Asda, Somerfields & it changes periodically.
We do need to shop around and be mindful of what we are consuming & how the advertising is effecting our choices of what we eat....or join the dark side.

In the last few weeks, your gym has probably been as packed as an IMAX theater with more strange creatures than Star Wars latest saga "The Force Awakens".
On a serious note though January is almost done, but in the past few weeks you've probably seen folks come into the gym raring to go like a Bull who is not going to give two f*cks …but they haven’t been lifting the iron in a long time (or they have, but not really making any real gains) you feel compelled (by the force of the dark Jedi) to do a heavy chest day, Why? because when you think a bit more .. it just doesn’t make sense... you’ve heard about the "Chewbacca theory” on South Park right?.
What is your One repetition maximum lift? (1RML) if you don’t know, get a Personal trainer to have a session with you & you can work it out.
From there, what's your fitness goal? is it Hypertrophy? (getting bigger), losing weight?, toning up? getting stronger? just be clear on what you want, then get a plan of action, with your trainer.
In the Video. ( click here to go to a facebook post)
I am doing a "Matrix workout" on the bench press, what is that? it’s lifting full & partial repetitions in a sequence at only 40% of my maximum lift, & this is for Hypertrophy/ & toning, by doing this you cumulatively recruit more and more "reserve" muscle fibers.
So lets see the breakdown, my (1RML) on the Bench press is currently 140kg, so 40% of that is 56kg, round it off to 55kg
(Bar is 20kg +10kg+ 5kg +2.5kg weight on each side)
My body weight is 95kg / 209lbs so that's 147% of my body weight to lift ratio.
How about you where do you fit in?, Personal training clients over the years in the city, I have experienced an average around 70% - 110% (males) of body weight to lift ratio & 40% - 90% (females) of body weight to lift ratio)
In the video you see me doing one set of 5 sets in total of (“C" Matrix Giant steps) with 90 sec rest in between sets...
5 full reps
1 half up
2 half down
3 full reps
4 half up
5 half down
6 full reps

Reactive training & Central nervous system.(CNS)
If you want to be at your best then you need to get your "CNS" fired up, too many times people come into the gym & find out that there performance is under par simply because there is a lack of something that they can't put their finger on.
The CNS takes up about 5% of your body weight but manages to use up around 20% of the oxygen our body produces!
That's what you call high maintenance!, any type of reactive training you do before weights will definitely improve your performance in the gym, also it's a great way of doing cardio intervals & can be challenging & fun.
Reactive training is anything that tests your hand eye coordination & proprioceptive awareness, boxing , skipping, throwing & catching, anything that's skill based.
Try this drill with the B.O.S.U ball with a 1 or 2 kg soft medicine ball, take 5 heel to toe steps away from the B.O.S.U ball & mark it with a towel.
How many times can you catch the ball in I min with your best hand?
My record is 58 catches in 1minute!
The video version show me switching hands if you try this you will realize how difficult a skill this is, the rewards are a great cardio workout & that you need to fully concentrate on the task at hand so you will forget any problems outside of the gym,..as they say "If you want a change, mix it up & have a go"!"Motivation comes from looking at the things you want and realising what it takes to get it"
