Oxidative stress is a natural part of cellular metabolism and day to day activities. Our bodies have their own ways to combat excess stress. 🤺
Phase 1 and Phase 2 detoxification enzymes (namely the cytochrome P450 family) which convert drug metabolites into a soluble compound – The first line of defence. But we also have ENDOGENOUS antioxidants which will “mop up” stress (ROS) – second line of defence. These are protein (superoxide dismutase, catalase, glutathione peroxidase and non-protein (glutathione, alpha-lipoic acid, coenzyme Q, ferritin, uric acid, bilirubin).🚶♂️
EXOGENOUS antioxidants come from our food. Our vitamins and minerals. Some will directly “scavenge” the ROS. Others act as co-factors to spare endogenous sources. direct antioxidants are ingested in the diet. For example, ascorbate (vitamin C), found abundantly in citrus fruits, and to-copherols (e.g., vitamin E), found in plant oils and napthoquinoids (e.g., vitamin K), found in leafy green vegetables. 🥦
Think of Darwin from Marvel, he adapts to survive. That’s what our body does too. Small amounts of stress will trigger metabolic adaptations, increasing our tolerance to stress. It’s only when stress is deemed chronic that is can lead to inflammation and cell death. Inflammation has been attributed to conditions such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and chronic fatigue syndrome.
Our amazing NrF2 is part of the pathway for the antioxidant defence system, making it a key player in our overall health status. 🤓🤓
Another 10km on the treadmill. Nice and easy just do get the miles done. Fitbit however makes it look like I am going to have a heart attack.
Glute activation before each leg session. Make sure that booty is fired, take the strain off the lower back.
Normally I do three rounds of four exercises between 15-30 reps depending on how warmed up I'm feeling. Go with feeling, try not to count reps. .
🍑 Glute bridges
🍑 Frog pumps
🍑 Side lying kicks
🍑 Kick backs.
This little circuit targets all aspects of the glute muscle, and gets me focused for the session.
Give it a try! 💪

Pretty happy with my rack pulls.
My hip has been bad for a while. So went to see Aaron @mofobodymechanic
for physio and to manipulate the joint.
Hip has loosened up so much, I wanted to try rack pulls.
Top set of 80kg for 8 reps. About half what I normally do, but that's injuries folks. Gonna allow time for strength to come back up slowly whilst doing my stretching, flossing and mobility. 💪
In no rush to gain weight or size for my permanent off season 🤣. Just going to train when I want, doing what I want. Taking a leaf out of @pippa_mindandmusclefitness
on intuitive training. 😘
