On Your Bike!..

Summer is here and so is the lycra! London is a city of passionate cyclists and after this year’s successful Tour de France, we thought what better time to give you some top tips for training those legs to help reach your cycling goals. Whether it is to make your journey to work more pleasant on your body, or you have a big challenge you are working towards, then have a quick look at our short videos broken up into two posts to make sure you are developing the right muscles to help build strength and stamina like an athlete.

To start you need to understand a little anatomy (don’t worry we will keep it simple) of the muscles which are worked when you cycle. The motion of pedaling can be broken up into two sections, the Power Phase and the Recovery Phase. The Power Phase is where you pedal down towards the ground with the leg almost full extended (12-6 O’clock) and the Recovery Phase is lifting back up towards the bike again (6-12 O’clock) diagram below alongside a more in-depth explanation.

  1. From the top of the pedal stroke, a cyclist utilizes their hip extensors (gluteus maximus muscle) which initiates the Power Phase of the pedal stroke until point at 3 on a clock face
  2. From the point of 3 to 5 on the clock face the knee extensors activate: vastus lateralis and vastus medialis. Many cyclists associate this point with generating the most force for their pedal stroke; this is particularly prominent while climbing out of the saddle on steep gradients.
  3. From positions 5 to 6, plantar flexion occurs, thanks to the gastrocnemius which causes the toes to point outwards.

In the video below we are helping to target Hip Extensors, Knee Extensors & Ankle plantar Flexors (Power Phase)

In the next video we will be exploring exercises which can improve the Recover Phase. Combine both workouts to receive maximum results from exercises.

Healthy Food Business Venture Opportunity…

pt studio

2018 has been an incredibly exciting year for PT Workspace having gone from strength to strength at our private personal training studio in Islington, which we launched in 2016. So naturally we want to bring luxury affordable studio hire to personal trainers all across London, as well as attainable fitness for those looking for a personal trainer. With our eyes firmly on the prize, the next step is a new studio and we feel confident with the location we have found in Farringdon, close to central & Exmouth Market with great transport links.

healthy food

We love what we do and the sense of community we are building at PT Workspace, which is why we would like to offer the right individual/ individuals the opportunity to join us in this exciting venture. The space we will be leasing will be big enough for the right business to open their very own healthy food venture above our studio, meaning you will be able to offer your wonderful products to the independent trainers and clients which come through our doors.

If opening up or expanding your very own health food business is the next step in your career, than we would love to talk with you! Of course we ask that your product is inline with the health/fitness industry which PT Workspace is aligned with.

PT Workspace Football Club…

There is nothing  quite like getting together with an awesome group of individuals and blowing off some steam on the football pitch. Whatever week you’ve had up until this point, is left at the side of the pitch before the whistle goes and the excitement begins. Specially with the World Cup now in motion, it could not be a more inspiring time to get outside in the late evening sun and break a sweat.

Summer Time at PT Workspace

This summer we have had great fun renovating the front entrance of PT Workspace, into a user friendly space for personal trainers and clients to utilise. When the sun has everyone smiling, we know that you want to feel those rays too, so we have given you the best of both worlds! Sunshine outside or a cool personal training space on the inside! Although we anticipated a good reception to the newly laid astro turf, it has been amazing to watch the personal trainers we work with making the most out of the additional equipment too! From Boxing bags to sledges we have your summer covered!

Take a sneak peek around PT Workspace…

Below the studio manger Nathan has put together a short video, showing you how many sets could be done with just the a tyre alone! Including a random interval from the next door neighbour.

See if you can add one set to your summer routine…

Conquering Mount Snowdon

This weekend past the weather has smiled upon us all across the UK, as PT Workspace ascended the death defying Crib Goch route to the summit of Mount Snowdon in Wales. All for a fantastic cause of course… Sport Relief! It felt incredible to reach the top in an amazing time with our tour guide who was super helpful, he even showed us a more scenic route down the mountain where less hikers walked.

Mount Snowdon

Before we set off we  donned our PT Workspace T-shirts for the climb and when we met with our guide at the Pen Y Pass (the starting point for most hikes up Snowdon) our tour guide asked “so which route would you like to take?” in which we responded “the hardest route possible” aside from scaling the mountain itself, we were not disappointed!

Mount Snowdon

A few thing we have most definatly learnt and will take forward is:

  • Break your hiking boot in before you hike a mountain. It can be very painful otherwise.
  • Hiking socks will bring your feet better comfort.
  • Pack lots of water (we did almost 6 bottles)
  • Pack a hat- Sunburn can be sneaky
  • Pack Sun lotion and apply more than once!
  • Little snacks were a great boost like cereal bars and nuts.
  • Layers were great when there were areas of cold, including waterproofs.
  • Hiking boots really supported the ankle, but many opt for trail trainers which are still great.
  • We packed Compeed plasters just in case of blisters, but we were fortunate.
  • Sunglasses were great when the eyes needed a rest from the sun.
  • Eating a good meal the day before with carbohydrates helped with consistently burning energy on the hike.
  • Have a great charity to support really helped maintain a great momentum throughout the day.

Our tour guide had essentials such as a tent and first aid kit in case of emergencies, so if we were going alone up Snowdon then these might be additional pieces to pack due to any number of unpredictable circumstances which could occur. But luck would have it that the weather was amazing and a very helpful tour guide made the experience one to remember.

Mount Snowdon

Choosing the Crib Goch route to the summit of Mount Snowdon was a full body workout in parts having to coordinate both hands and feet at the same time. Training in advance really made a difference to the whole experience, If you are taking part in an exciting challenge this year and would like some guidance, then we are happy to offer our expert advice on training and gaining your personal best.
