Steve: This is Steve at Calibre Fitness, speaking with Jarrad Waite of the Carlton Football Club. How are you doing, Jarrad?

Jarrad: Good Thanks, Steve.

Steve: Could you describe your typical training week?

Jarrad: In our typical training week, we will train 2-3 times a week depending if we play a Saturday or Sunday. If we play a Saturday, we train on Monday and Wednesday. We have weights in the afternoon, so usually train for anything between 1 – 1.5 hours, rest for about 1 hour, go have a meal and recharge the batteries and then jump into weights, usually 45 minutes to 1.5 hours. So we do that twice a week, then we usually have either the Tuesday or Thursday off, and the other day we come in and have a bit of touch, bit of goal kicking, a few meetings and stuff like that. Then the day before a game it’s usually just a light training session, half an hour max, a few ‘feel good’ drills and then in to a meeting.

Steve: What is your diet like?

Jarrad: My diet is a lot better than it used to be. Obviously, the way football is becoming more professional, and the players becoming more fit and looking after their bodies, you really have to maintain your diet and you can’t really eat poorly these days, almost more for recovery. We have a full time dietician. You speak to him more when you’re injured to make sure you don’t lose too much weight and keep the fat off. So yeh... Diet is very important.

Steve: In your footy career, you’ve spent time both in the forward and back line, which do you prefer and why?

Jarrad: I enjoy the forward line. I feel it’s a bit more challenging... and you get to kick goals, haha. It can be very frustrating playing forwards at times, because you are so reliant on other players. But I probably enjoy playing forward more for those reasons.

Steve: ... And you found it an easy transition from back to forward?

Jarrad: Yeh, I always have, it’s never been that difficult for me to transition, I suppose that was probably why I was used in that sort of role so much, because it wasn’t that hard for me.

Steve: Did you always want to play for Carlton?

Jarrad: Yeh, I did. Obviously Dad played there. When I was younger, I sort of went away from barracking for Carlton, I barracked for Essendon for a little bit, because I had brother-in-laws and cousins who went for them. But deep down, I knew if I was going to get drafted, it’d be to Carlton.

Steve: So you don’t see yourself going anywhere else?

Jarrad: Haha, Not at my age. I think I’m going to be a one-club man.

Steve: So this year, you’ve been elevated to Carlton’s leadership group, what added responsibilities have you taken on?

Jarrad: The only thing that’s changed is I take more of a role leading the forwards. I take a few of their meetings and help develop the younger forwards. I go through their tapes most weeks, critique their games. Myself and Johnnie Barker, who’s our forwards coach, go through their tapes, which helps my development if I ever want to go down that path and obviously hopefully I’ll be able to help the younger guys.

Steve: You’ve been fairly plagued by injuries over the past few years, how’s your fitness at the moment?

Jarrad: At the moment, I’ve hurt my back a bit, so I’m probably still a couple of weeks away from playing, but before that, it was good. I was feeling good, and got over my groin issues, but unfortunately my back’s reared its head up. It’s pretty frustrating, but I’m doing everything right to keep my fitness up, so when it comes good I’ll be right to go again.

Steve: Is there anything in particular you’re doing to keep your body right?

Jarrad: A lot of maintenance work on my body. A lot of hip exercises and leg weights to keep strength through my legs and core, a lot of pilates too. So there are a few things we can do, and it really is helping.

Steve: Even though only a few weeks ago, Carlton were the premiership favourites... Now people are questioning whether you’ll make the 8... And now with Marc Murphy out injured, how have things changed around the club?

Jarrad: Even when we were ‘premiership favourites’... We didn’t really think we were. We wanted to finish top 4 and knew that was the expectation at the club. We will make the 8; I have no issues with that. Murph is obviously a massive loss... But it gives someone that hasn’t been getting a game the opportunity to take his position. I’m pretty sure Murph will get it back when he’s right, but it’s an opportunity for someone else to step up and fill his spot.

Steve: Who do you feel is the best player you’ve played with or against?

Jarrad: The best player I’ve played against would be either Jonathan Brown or Nick Riewoldt. Obviously 2 very talented players, 2 different players, even though Jonathan Brown’s as big as he was, he was still very aerobic and Nick Riewoldt just worked so hard from one end of the ground to the other. Blokes that I’ve played with, probably Andrew McKay, very hard at it, very diligent backmen and was someone who when I first got to the club, I looked up to... And obviously Chris Judd.

Steve: You’re coming up for your 150th game, What’s been the highlight of your career to date?

Jarrad: There’s been a couple. Obviously 1st game is always a highlight, first time you run out on a ground is very exciting and a moment you never forget. Another highlight is my first final that we played against Sydney a couple of years ago, we lost that... but almost should have won it. Then a couple of victories where we’ve come from behind, a few years ago against Essendon were down by 50-60 points and came back and won. So they’re probably the 3 that I’ll always remember.

Steve: And Finally... How quickly do you get around Princess Park?

Jarrad: Not as quick as I used to. My best time is 10:26, which was about 7-8 years ago. I was a bit lighter of frame. But I haven’t had a year when I haven’t got under 11 minutes. Some of the boys are getting low 10s these days, Andrew Walker and that. I don’t think I’ll ever get that quick again, but if I continue to get under 11, I’ll be pretty happy.

Steve: Fantastic, Thanks for your time Jarrad.

Jarrad: No Worries, Steve!

Posted in Interview By Calibre Fitness

Arthur Boorman had given up hope. He was a disabled war veteran who had been told by his doctor’s that he’d never walk unassisted again. He had blown up to 135kg’s and basically acknowledged defeat, when he came across a yoga program that would change his life forever.

Posted in Latest News By Calibre Fitness

You want to look like the Gerard Butler in 300? Well, this workout is how they trained to get it shape for the movie. It’s not easy and it requires a tremendous amount of dedication. Not only do you have to physically punish your body over a prolonged period of time, but you also need to step up your game when it comes to nutrition. You can't work out like an animal and then eat junk and expect to look like King Leonidas. It just doesn't work that way.

It should be noted that Gerald Butler wanted to get EXTRA big for his role, so he worked out more than the rest of the cast. The entire cast would spend 2 hours per day doing their workouts and 2 hours per day working on fighting techniques. Butler went above and beyond, and hired a personal trainer for an additional two hours per day of training, making it a grand total of six hours of training per day. He figured that since he was the King, he should look the biggest.

People are amazed that the cast of 300 only trained for three months to look the way that they did. What is especially amazing is that a good number were in poor shape when they started; one actor was reportedly 40 pounds overweight and still ended up looking like he was chiselled out of stone. Ask Edward Norton about training for American History X or Tobey Maguire about training for Spiderman; both actors dramatically altered their bodies in a period of just 3-4 months. It is possible, but requires complete dedication.

So how did the cast of 300 start out? Working out in a hot gym with no air conditioning, doing nothing but cardio. Their trainers wanted to get everyone's metabolism up, and get those pounds coming off. Their daily meal plan was the standard bodybuilding fare throughout their entire regimen; plenty of chicken, protein shakes and vegetables. Just enough to fuel their bodies, but not too much, as the makers of the movie wanted the actors to have a real shredded look.

The trainers did their best to keep the actors' bodies guessing during the three months. One day they would be doing cardio until they thought their hearts were going to burst; the next day they would be lifting heavy weights until their arms were going to fall out; then the day after they would be doing an assortment of unorthodox exercises such as doing windsprints with a cable attached to their bodies for resistance or lifting a massive tire, tipping it over, jumping through the tire and then repeating. Keeping your body guessing is one of the best ways to ensure that you stay growing.

At the end, the actors were challenged to complete the "300." Only half of them even tried, with the best time coming in at 18 minutes and 11 seconds.

Here’s the workout:

-25 pullups

-50 deadlifts (135 pounds)

-50 pushups

-50 24-inch box jumps

-50 floor wipers (basically benchpressing 135 pounds, but holding the weight in the air while you swing your legs up and down, while not touching the floor. The ultimate Ab workout.)

-50 single arm clean-and-press with 36 pound kettlebells

-25 pull-ups

(There is no scheduled rest time at all between any of the exercises)

If you can even complete this, you are an absolute machine. Just the fact that half of the actors, although in amazing shape, didn't even attempt this should tell you how hard it is. If you make it past the push-ups, then the 24-inch box jumps will take the rest of the strength out of you. If you happen to make it past the box jumps, have fun, because 50 floor wipers are waiting for you.

With absolute dedication, you can look like a Spartan warrior within three months. But just remember the words of Gerald Butler. "I thought I was going to die."
