The Warrior Team Update

The Warrior Team Update

We think it's fun to be able to share with you guys what we get up to each month, so here goes - PBs and progress and a bit of a laugh…

What are our secrets to getting the progress we get?

  1. Work hard - be prepared to show up for sessions even when we don’t feel like it.

  2. Be willing to fail and f**k things up.

  3. Know that it takes time - things rarely happen as fast as we want them to.

  4. Seek outside help - we all have our own coaches depending on what goals and struggles we have.

Where To Get Veggie and Vegan Protein From?

Are you veggie or vegan and not sure if you're getting in enough protein?? I’ve been vegetarian for nearly 25 years and I’ve been asked it in many a lunch queue, by many a colleague and by many a relative.

For lots of people not in the know, being vegetarian or vegan apparently means being pale, sickly, and struggling to keep (or put on) muscle, as we’re ‘never getting enough protein.

If you're interested in if finding out why this is not the case and how to eat more protein as a vegetarian or vegan, check this out:

Warrior One Arm Pull-Up!

Amy achieving a one arm pull up after a client suggested she tried!

It is Amy’s strength training- with barbells, dumbbells and body weight exercises which has allowed her to become capable of movements like these with no practice.

To find out more about how we help people build strength and confidence in our free weights gym, visit our website www.thewarriorprogramme.co.uk for more information.

At The Warrior Programme we are notorious for fake tanning, chicken and broccoli diets and only trying chest and arms. So naturally we had to go to Body Power- the event of our lives.

Check out our beef cakes- Meg, Amy and Matt showing everyone else up. Truly smashed it. #workhardplayhard.
