8 weeks ago Sanjay started an 8 week plan to trim down and re-shape his physique, and in the photos above you can clearly see his awesome results!
While weight loss wasn’t the primary target, Sanjay still managed a 3.3kg drop from 63.8kg to 60.5kg, and a drop in body fat percentage, from 19.5% to 17%. Also on the improve is his posture, and while this will be an ongoing work on for Sanjay, he is now literally seeing the world from a different point of view.
We have also improved his technique in all facets of his lifting to the point where now he is squatting pain free for the first time in years.
AWESOME JOB SANJAY! well done mate.

Welcome to the second part of learn to skip – advanced skipping. The techniques shown in the video above will really test your skipping ability once you have the basics down.
In a nutshell – the key to success in skipping is the same as anything else – practice and consistency. It can get demotivating when you struggle to find your rhythm but if you stick to it skipping can become something you actually look forward to like I do!
Skipping is one of my favourite exercises to do, and it comes in handy when I want to keep my endurance and agility up for wrestling. We’ve all jumped rope at some stage of our lives, you maybe a bit out of practice, but I rate it as one of the best forms of cardio, and once you master the basics I cover in the video above and move into the more advanced techniques, it may well become one of your favs as well!
Benefits of skipping
Its a full body workout – core for stability, legs for jumping and arms for turning the rope
Studies show 10 mins of skipping is the equivalent of 45 mins running!
Its super convenient, a rope can fit in a small bag and can be done anywhere
It increases bone density
Cardiovascular improvements also help people with high blood pressure, high cholesterol and other heart related issues
Done in High Intensity Intervals(HIIT) skipping can produce a high calorie burning workout
Improves agility, balance, co-ordination and footwork for many different sports
Improves muscle tone
In a nutshell – Skipping can be tricky to pick up if you haven’t done it for a while, the trick is to start simple and go from there – e.g. trying to get to 20 skips without stopping, then 30, then 40, 50 and so on up to 100…. try doing the same with the other simple techniques in the video.
Next week I will cover more advanced techniques to get the mind and body working!!
