Here is a bit of an update from the weekend’s session, one of my good mate Geraint came down to train with myself and Pete. The main objective was to get him into his new bench shirt and start to work his bench. A late Sunday bench session seems to be the norm now and they are good. The gym tends to be cold and with a few of the guys in there working out it soon warms up and the banter starts. I think the session went well I have started to get back to basics with my training and used a Titan Ram for the night it felt good hit a 170 bench in it and then dropped back for some reps, Pete used some bands and Geraint stated to hit some bigger weight on to the block.
This week is going great guns started back in the gym with some good ground work ready for the main training cycle? Lots of sets and reps seem to be on the agenda at this time. I am currently using the NRG TTP before training and then their 100%Whey after. The TTP is a great pre workout supplement and it has lots in it for those hard training sessions. I am going to give it some time before I get any form of kit on and start to get into shape and a bit fitter for the main build up. I am working up to % sets of % on the main lifts and then for assistance I am going to do lots of higher reps on them also. I would like to fit in some cardio session and try to start to get the body fat down a bit, the Cross trainer seems to work well for me but it is hard to start with after so much time off.
Here is my weekly update on how thing are going. It is great to be back in the Gym and starting to focus on the Event that is later in the year. The Europeans is going to be in Maripol In the Ukraine in may. That should be a good Trip and I am sure that Team GB will do well there. Myself I am hoping to get there I have started to look towards the sponsorship for the trip and feel like it will be a great one to take part on. For any of you who are interested I have now started to use some more of the NRG range of supplements and I am currently going to use the TTP product. They also have a TTP anabolic and for me I don’t want the extra carbs at this point that there is in the Anabolic version. If any of you guys are interested in any of the NRG products then please feel free to ask about them or if you are down my way and you want any I have them at good prices.
Anyway back to the gym, started some light foundation work to get me prepared for the main build up in a few weeks. I am going to stick to what I have been doing for the main lifts and change the assistance around and maybe incorporate some band and chain work. My training partner was on about bands on leg press so we had a go at them and they were good. Well done Pete on making some input lol
So what is next for you guys there are a few Comps going to be around soon and what do you have planned for yourselves.
Here we are now back into the gym and back to some hard Training. It will soon be time to plan the years Events and see what comps are good for me. Now I have become a master lifter I have so much more to choose from. I think however the first choice is to do the British Masters in March and then see how it goes from there. So some light stuff for the first few weeks and then get myself onto some sort of program that will focus more on what I am going to do. In May the European open is in the Ukraine and that looks good. However the worlds are in Puerto Rico now that is miles away this year, mind you the World Masters is in the USA. Now I have competed all over this globe but never in the USA so that would be a good chance to get out there and see just how they do their events and catch up with some of my friends out there. Like before I will try to get the blog updated on a weekly basis and keep you guys updated on what is going on, feel free to add comments at any time, we now have that facility and it will be good to hear what you guys have to say.
Here we are the start of a new year and what a better than with a new web site. I would like to thank Rob for the site and his help in getting it up and running. Hopefully when I get the hang of the new site I can start to get some bits posted up for you guys to see what is going on with me.
The last year has ended and for myself it ended on a bit of a high. My last event was the Commonwealth Championships. Despite not being fully fit I set a World and European Squat record with 300kgs. Commonwealth Bench press and Total, 205 and 752.5kgs. The new body weight has helped and it is nice now to be training and competing at the same weight. I would also like to say a few Thank You’s to the guys who ave helped me throughout the year, The Gym boys Pete, Mat and Paul, Bobby for keeping my body together.
Then my Sponsor’s firstly NRG Supplements and also Titan Support Systems, Thank you Guys for all your help and Support.
