Taking in Show Day!!

For me, when it comes to a show, it’s the cherry on top of the work that has been put in during the proceeding weeks and month.

Rest and knowing when to take it….

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 swiftContinue reading “Trying Everything…”

“Trusting The Process” Mid-Prep for a competition…

It’s a phrase I’ve seen a lot of recently in the years I’ve been competing, one which holds much meaning. To me, it signifies a point where the results of your work are starting to pay off, it’s a marathon not a sprint and putting the structure in place to see you through to yourContinue reading ““Trusting The Process” Mid-Prep for a competition…”

Reviewing the growing momentum of disability sport!

With so much disruption over the last 18 months you’d be forgiven for thinking that maybe it’ll take a while for momentum to start build again toward opportunities to compete across the board in any sport given that restrictions have only just lifted.

The last 18 months has created a huge amount of unexpected change, for everyone. It’s been disorientating for many and without realising too much at the time it affected me greatly, but through breaking down elements, change was slowly processed and provided a blueprint for a very recent change in circumstance which I’d love toContinue reading “Adapting to change and making opportunity…”

Lessening The Impact…

As my training has developed over the years, the major hurdles that I’ve needed to change from a physical perspective has not only been working around “standard” equipment and being patient with learning what fits but to understand my body to greater degree as it gets older. What I have found much more recently isContinue reading “Lessening The Impact…”

Building My Own Two Teams…

The opportunity to build and develop muscle has taken me to different places physically and mentally over the last few years. There are literally two sides to this story…My left side and right side. Generally, many people will enter a gym aware of a dominant side perhaps. The machines and equipment are likely set upContinue reading “Building My Own Two Teams…”
