Trying Everything…

About a decade has passed since I cautiously went into a gym with hardly any experience and pretty scared of the free weights section all those years ago.

It takes a while to familiarise yourself. With the equipment, the environment & the variations that can used for a variety of different goals.

Making a swift decision to want to try EVERYTHING in there ended up being worthwhile in the long one, taking the time to not just work out what was available but how to adapt with them.

That’s not to say I can use every piece as it should be used but taking the time to slowly unpick the equipment to isolate the muscle groups needed in my workout continues to pay off to this day.

Yes I have my favourite pieces of equipment and go-to’s on a weekly basis but the more variation available, the more fun can be had with different ranges!

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!
