There are many ways of managing energy balance, pretty much every dietary intervention works on the basic principle of controlling the Calories in portion of 24-hour energy balance. A diet that cuts out entire food groups like plant-based, that cuts out meat and fish. Carnivore, that cuts out fruits and vegetables. Keto and low carb which cut out carbohydrate foods, intermittent fasting that cuts out all food for periods of time and so on. They all do one thing, they reduce the amount of Calories you consume. But, in health and fitness you will often hear phrases like: 'eat a balanced diet' or 'everything in moderation'. But what do those statements really mean?
This blog sets out to give you one method of creating a 'balanced' approach to eating. It is only one methods and that means that it may suit some people but not suit others. This will depend on a number of factors like, your relationship with food, your understanding of the composition of food, your time availability, your compulsive desire to put the effort in and so on.
What is this method? It's the macronutrient diet often referred to simply as 'tracking macros'.
By now you should have cottoned on to the fact that exercise is really important for your health, so important that it really ought not to be an option for you. Cardiovascular exercise, as the name suggests, develops the cardio (heart) and Vascular (circulatory system). But it works on the respiratory system (lungs) as well. In other words, if you want a healthy heart, lungs and arteries you should do some cardio, which means getting out of breath for prolonged periods of time. Cycling for example.
The hardstyle snatch is a full body pull pattern exercise that develops explosive power, especially in the hips and shoulders. It can be used as a strength/power exercise or a cardio exercise. It also acts as a transition to other more complex kettlebell movements. Its origins are come from the world of Olympic lifting, where the barbell snatch is a staple lift alongside the clean and snatch (also adapted to kettlebell training).
The Snatch is an explosive strength-endurance based exercise. Because of this, it can be a great exercise to help reduce back pain, it's excellent for endurance athletes like runners or cyclists who need more power and it's great for anyone who takes part in sports with an explosive element. But it's a very technical lift that is easily done wrong and is something that novices should build up to. You need to master basic movement patterns, establish a base of strength and stability and may need to work on improving shoulder mobility first. Here’s a break-down of the technique and suggestions on how to incorporate it into your sessions.
