You’re doing it wrong-sprains and strains

Traditionally, the acronym RICE which stands for rest, ice, compression, elevation was used to treat sprains and strains. You’d be surprised to learn that actually; the researcher who suggested RICES as the best line of action himself now disagrees with the concept. Even more shocking… it’s the “rest” and “ice” aspects that are outdated. We…

Recently, I’ve been practising to be more holistic and mindful. Why you ask? Well, I am currently doing a Masters degree, working 20 hours a week, and on a Weightlifting Team.

How Eating Unhealthy Has Made Me Healthier

This time last year, if you were to look at my diet, most would think it was unremarkable. I tracked all my calories and macros, catered each and everything I consumed to fit my macros, and I rarely ever had a cheat meal. When I speak about a cheat meal, I mean I would eat…

This is a very minimal amount, which many people overestimate. My average protein intake per day would realistically be between 38.4g-57.6 g. This isn’t much. One scoop of…
