Cooking Tip:

Sneak your veggies into your cooking. Your kids (or adult's) wont even know it's in there. For instance blend some carrots capsicums and spinach up and add in with your mince to make rissoles.

Training Tip:

Intervals and EMOM's are a great way to build capacity. When constructing an Emom you want to make it hard but achievable. Ideally by round 3-5 you should be just making cut off, however, getting the work done. Vary workload and weight lods as well as lenght of EMOM's. Try rowing, running and riding repeats. A few of our favourites are

This is one of the all-time favorite curry to make. Mandras Lamb Curry is a delicious and savourful curry recipe ideal for elaborate dinners and parties. You can use beef if you like, but it often takes a little longer to cook, so just leave it simmering for another 20 minutes or until the meat melts in your mouth.

If you like hot curry like we do, this recipe will surely satisfy your curry craving. 


  • 2 tablespoons light olive oil
  • 1.5kg lamb neck chops
