Snow and more snow seems to be the order of the day, Well things are starting to warm up with the training. The last few weeks I have been focusing on the Bench ready for the comp in March. I did start the coan deadlift Program also but last week I was a bit under the weather and felt that I could not do my deadlifts so I have decided to make sure I am fit and healthy and start it again. This time I plan to use it towards the British Masters and see how things go at the comp.
Well at about 2 degrees the gym was def cold this morning and the order of the day was reps and lots of them on the squat with a light weight but to get the blood flowing around these tired legs of mine.
I was asked the other day about what Supplements I have been using and as you will be aware I am Proudly Sponsored by NRG Fuel. Well my answer was Breakfast Whey for my first meal of the Day and before training I have been using the TTP. The other times i use 100% Whey and this time I am trying out chocolate orange, Well Lush I do have to say. The only other product I am using is CLA now to help with my weight management, the strange thing is I am not really over weight after the festive season.
On another note for all you Powerlifters out there I have been told that Titan Support systems have revamped their signature series knee wrap. The feedback is it is great as good or if not better than the THP but not as harsh on the legs. More about them when I get mine from Titan

Lets get back Traininig and Nrg Fuel

Hi Guys, well a quick updated on how life and training is going. We have now had the festive season over for another year and it is all back to normal now. Myself i did enjoy christmas and although i worked most of it the family enjoyed.
Well training i have sort of planned the next few months out and i am going to to the National Bench Press championships in March. Some of you may be aware i have done this event in the past and whilst i am not a Bench Presser i do enjoy it.Sort of a weird statement to make considering i hold the Records Nationally and at the commonwealth, i am a powerlifter and the whole thing is a bench press guy a powerlifter or not thing comes into mind
Powerlifters do three lifts and yes the Bench is a powerlift. Same but different comes to mind eh. Anyway for the next few weeks i am going to hit the raw training to get my bench fired up for the forthcoming event.
The start of the week was fun i popped up to see my sponsors Nrg Fuel at HQ to grab some supps and see how they are all doing. It was great to meet some of the Team who i have only spoken to on the phone and have a look around the warehouse and have a catch up. It was def worth the drive up and maybe i will be doing that a bit more often. Well i have benched this week raw and with loads of reps it is now time to deadlift and get back to four days of hard Training each week.

New Year People

Happy New year to you all. Well now the festive season is all over and normal life is resuming I am now back in the gym as normal. Since there is some time till the National Masters Championships I have decided to mix my training about and try some new things. For a start I am now using a bench Program from the good guys up north “The Horncastle Method” Marc Giles has his guys doing it and there are doing well with their Bench Press so I figured why not give it a go and see how it works for me. I just hope I don’t turn out to be a farmer like the rest of them up north.
For the Deadlift I have started the Coan Phillipi Program the link for anyone wanting to see it is here:
So what’s is next for me then at this point I am looking towards the National Bench Press for the first comp and then onto the Masters where I would like to stake a claim to being selected for the Europeans later in the year. I have put a bit more thought into the first 6 months of the year and what comps and where I would like to compete. However for now I have the time to get some foundation work in and try some new things out.
