The afterburn effect and how to maximise it

The “Afterburn Effect” and why KettleFit workouts guarantee you maximise it every time! After a long car trip your car’s engine stays warm as it gradually cools to a resting temperature. Here’s a cool fact: The same thing happens to your body after a workout. Similar to how a car engine stays warm, your body’s metabolism can continue to burn calories after an intense workout even when you are at complete rest. This physiological effect is called excess post exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC), or more commonly called the Afterburn Effect. EPOC is the amount of oxygen required to restore your body to its normal, resting level of metabolic function (called homeostasis). It also explains how your body can continue to burn calories long after you’ve finished your workout. Here are seven things you should know about EPOC and how KettleFit workouts can optimise calorie burning from your workouts: Immediately after…

How to train like a professional tennis player

How to train like a professional tennis player By Stuart Marsh Jan 25th, 2016   Despite its genteel history, tennis is a decidedly brutal sport for the athletes who choose to make it a career. It’s easy to see why when you look at the unique strength and conditioning challenges that the game throws up for coaches and athletes. Firstly, there's no set time – you could be on the court for anywhere from an hour to more than five. (For those wondering, the longest match ever played was an 11-hour slog-fest between American John Isner and Frenchman Nicholas Mahut at Wimbledon in 2010.) Secondly, in professional tennis there's no real off-season. Players travel the world from tournament to tournament all year round, managing their recovery as best as they can in airport lounges, hotel rooms and stadium gyms. Thirdly, and perhaps most importantly, since tennis is primarily a strategic…

How to train like an AFL player

How to train like an AFL player By Stuart Marsh Dec 18th, 2015 (image) iStock It's not just the short shorts that make women love AFL footballers – it's the sculpted physiques, incredible athleticism and sheer explosiveness that sets hearts aflutter. But training like an AFL player is not easy. Behind each player is a crack team of coaches, doctors, physiotherapists and facilities all working together to give them the best possible performance – and the best possible bodies. But that doesn't mean you can't replicate some of their training at home, says Jarrod Egan, one of the co-founders of KettleFit and a former strength and conditioning coach of Geelong, North Melbourne and Port Adelaide Football clubs. "A lot of your traditional gym programs are quite slow, with long rest periods and minimal cardio work," Egan told ninemsn Coach. "To replicate what the players do out on the field, you…

How to train like a professional cricket player

How to train like a professional cricket player By Stuart Marsh (image) iStock It's known as "the gentleman's game", and for a long time cricketers have trained like gentlemen too, hitting the nets once a week and knocking back a carton after a game. But with the advent of shorter forms like 20/20, increased pay packets and pressure to perform, that's all changing. Modern cricketers have to be explosively quick between the wickets and have enough strength to bowl balls as mind-bogglingly fast as 160km/h. Jarrod Egan, former strength and conditioning coach of the West End Redbacks and co-founder of KettleFit, gives ninemsn Coach a behind the scenes look at how a modern cricketer must prepare for game day. Your training should reflect your role in the team Cricket is by and large a technique-driven sport. Whether you're a batter or a bowler, the core of any cricket training program…
