The Extra 1/5/10%…

How much further can we go? How far do we want to go, or even allow for?

The desire to push and break new ground in many areas of our lives is often encouraged, it’s the type of structure which enables us to grow, to explore and discover new possibilities.

Once thing that can be said, is that no matter of the goal we set out to achieve, how far we can go is down to one person – YOU.

The question is how much can we and should we apply to achieve this goal.

I’d love to deadlift 125kg – I’m not going to get there today, but slowly and surely, over a scheduled timeframe I’ll do it – pushing an extra 10% would possibly lead injury today, but an extra rep in the right direction consistently will change the game over time…

Whatever it is, decide the timeframe, where you can provide that extra % and put your all in, you’ll surprise yourself, EVERY day.

It’s down to you…

Bringing you the latest in not only my personal journal into the world of disability Bodybuilding, but a discovery into latest events, profiles, news and promoting awareness of this great sport Based in Bristol in the UK, I’ve been competing in Disability Bodybuilding for the last 3 years in a journey which has taken me all over the country to national, international & world championships and I am so so grateful for that opportunity that had changed my life. Living with Cerebal Palsy has its challenges, but everyone has their individual hurdles to negotiate. Gaining strength both physically & mentally and adapting to the surrounding is all part of this journey. This is a mission to raise awareness, to promote our great category to develop opportunities for others. Please get in touch if you’d like to discuss more!
