Well into my 30’s now, recovery times are even more crucial with my training, HOWEVER! I still feel we’re only just getting started. I’ve been training consistently for around 8 years, but I’m still learning every day, I think that’s why I still love it. Training and bodybuilding is a world of discovery. As isContinue reading “Just getting started…”

The power of accessible information….

Social media is playing a huge part in delivering accessible information regarding training . Both in terms of how things can be done and achieved and celebrating and sharing ideas. I’ve tried to be like a sponge with information – particularly with training practice and theory. This goes for nutrition and with trial and errorContinue reading “The power of accessible information….”

The battle to find the adaption…

Doing what I can but also exploring “what can I do?”

There has been an acceptance from myself that have to do things differently from many people. It’s a mental attitude picked up from an early age that I had to find alternative routes with things, so doing that in the gym wasn’t alien to me. That being said, it was notion having to find myContinue reading “Doing what I can but also exploring “what can I do?””

There are so many objectives ahead in 2022, more family activities, plans to get bigger physically , career development, sharing more stories, get more sleep, it could be literally endless… The issue I’ve realised at the turn of the year reflections is that I can’t cram it into 30 days, nor do I want someContinue reading “The 2022 Plan?

My Physical and Mental Fitness “Improvements Season”

I like the term “improvements season” – the transition from a pre-contest to post (physical) fitness contest or ‘off season’ is not always as straight forward as I think it will be sometimes… To elaborate, so much time and energy around the gym is allotted to the season ending finale with often a single focusContinue reading “My Physical and Mental Fitness “Improvements Season””

Motivation Mountains – Breaking down goals into mini movements

We have big goals and dreams. Some will be in touching distance, others maybe so far away that they barely seem reachable….for now. I try to work and improve on my thinking a little more every year when attempting new goals – from my gym work, my career and wider changes.
