Training Calves . Fit Empire team member and Personal Trainer @philbarnett_ goes through his 3 go to exercises for training calves and why. . Exercise #1 (Gastrocnemius stretch): I like to start with an exercise that i feel a good stretch in. Usually this is either a donkey calf raise the machine seen in pic #1 . You can also use a leg press or any other machine were your hips are flexed and at a 90 degree angle. This will help to ensure you are getting the maximum stretch through your calves . Exercise #2 (Gastrocnemius contraction): Secondly I like to do a standing calf raise. Keeping knees slightly bent I start from a full stretched position. I then squeeze through my calves imagining I’m pushing my toes through the floor rather then just pressing by body up. I then hold for a second before I try to further my contraction by trying to raise up even further. I find doing the concentric part of this movement in this 2 step fashion helps me get a better contraction then i would by doing it in one motion before going down into the eccentric part again. . Exercise #3 (Soleus activation): My third exercise of choice is the seated calf raise. Because you are in a seated position with your knees bent at a 90 degree angle you get better activation and engagement of the Soleus muscle then on the previous exercises. The Soleus is the muscle that sits behind the Gastrocnemius and when developed can add good thickness to the overall look of your calves . Usually through any give calf workout i will do some sort of variations of all these exercises. Always changing up the manner is which i do them. Aka; super sets, giant sets or variations with different rep ranges to ensure im always hitting them to their fullest. . If you are looking to better your own results, @philbarnett_ is now taking on new clients from @worldgymtownsville . DM his page for more information.
Some would say @kay.anneobrien is in a good mood. In store till 4pm!

Everybody, this is Scout. He is a Service Dog and best friend to one of the many former ADF members who are now living with PTSD. He spend has spent the last 24 hours walking Castle Hill right along side his owner, helping to raise awareness for mental health. For a lot of our returned service men and women, Best Friends like Scout are invaluable to help them deal with many day to day activities we often take for granted. If you see someone with a service dog, don’t be afraid to strike up a conversation with them, they may just open your eyes to world you weren’t aware of. It was great to meet you Scout and thanks for the pic!

💥 RESILIENCE HAS LANDED AND IS IN STORE AT FIT EMPIRE!💥 . . From today onwards you will be able to find Resilience in your local supplement or health food store. Ask them about how you can get your hands one of the first tubs of RESILIENCE! . What is Resilience? ️ . RESILIENCE: an ability to recover from or adjust easily to misfortune or change. . Resilience is a powerful blend of shielding and fortifying herbs and spices: Turmeric, Reishi, Frankincense, Myrrh, Artemisia, and Amla. Did you know it is actually your immune system that makes you feel lousy when you have a cold or flu and not the infecting bug? It is your immune response that determines how sick you feel. The pain associated with a sprain or bad back is your response to the insult or injury. In essence, you make the inflammation that causes the pain. . Overstimulating these survival mechanisms will create exaggerated responses, excessive mucous, fever, pain, aches, oxidative stress, and reactions. For optimal performance, we want to be resilient. We want to be able to adjust, respond and recover quickly. Be tougher. Launch an efficient and effective defence and then switch it off as soon as possible to protect the host (you) from your own defence mechanisms. . What does Resilience do? Resilience is formulated to correct immune dysfunction. In practical terms, it may assist in reducing the signs and symptoms of the common cold, but it is more than that. Frankincense, myrrh and turmeric work in synergy to kill infections. Frankincense dissolves the infection’s biofilm that is hiding and protecting the bug; myrrh, reishi, and artemisia deliver antimicrobial actions to the bug, while turmeric amplifies the effects. If your immune system is flat, Resilience will help boost a flagging immune system. And if your immune system is overactivated, it will help return it to normal. . This is an ultra-potent formulation with only the finest herbs and spices sourced worldwide. We use the best so you can feel the best!
I had a great discussion last night with one of our awesome customers who works in a pretty full on industry dealing with difficult situations regularly. Her view on life and the hardship we often face was one to be admired. The point is. Old Ab Lincoln had it right... always do your best to find the good in the bad and don’t always look for the bad in the good.
This product has quite literally change my life. I initially started taking it for recovery from my workouts and it works a charm. Maybe the best side benefit I've found, is that while I always suffered from horrendous period pain, since using this product I've not had to use any Panadol for my periods. Magnesium does more than aid in your muscles recovery - with high stores it can do wonders for your whole health. #maketheswitch #flicktheswitch
