I believe that every gym session should involve an Olympic Bar, and anyone wanting to gain size or strength need to be including the 'Big Four in their routines-Military Press, Deadlift, Bench Press and Squat. Of the many training cycles I have done- Jim Wendler's 5/3/1 has got to be my favorite. A 5 week cycle that will see you progress beyond all your PR's, whilst at the same time building core strength and muscle endurance.Read More

This week I went event training at The Edge in Arlington, VA to train Strongman Events ready for my next competition. I had 3 events in mind that I wanted to practice-Log Press, Farmers Walk and One Arm Dbell Press.

The week after a competition always depends on how you feel. Sometimes I have trained again the next day but this last week it was the complete opposite! I felt like I had been hit by a bus, which meant a steady week at the gym.Read More

Competing in my first US Strongman competition and my first one in nearly 12months was a great feeling besides the usual nerves. On Saturday 10th march I competed in the Capitol Classic Strongman Challenge just outside Washington DC. Despite having pulled my back 2 weeks prior I still was eager to get my season underway and decided to compete.Read More

Well March is here which only means one thing for me........COMPETITION TIME!
I haven't been able to train Strongman Events for around 9months since moving over to the US but my gym training and overall strength has been progressing really well. I hope this and the experience I have gained competing the last 3 years in the UK will get me through. With any Strongman competition at this level it really could be anyone who could walk (or limp) away with the victory.Read More

Great start to the week training. Tuesday I wanted to Max out on 18" Deadlifts Raw-No Deadlift suit just my belt and lifting straps. Breaking down your Deadlifts can help iron out any weaknesses you have. 18" Deadlifts can improve your lockout powerRead More

Training Clever and listening to your body is something that we have all failed to do in the past-including myself. This last week still hopeful at competing at the beginning of March I took into consideration previous build up's.

So, with competition time fast approaching it’s time to up my game a little bit. I always get people telling me they are doing everything right in the gym but are not seeing any progress in size and very little progress in strength. First thing I ask them is what they consume on a daily basis-9 times out of 10 they are either eating rubbish or simply not enough. You can lift and train all you want to but without proper nutrition you will never progress the way you should.Read More

So it turns out that my Deadlifting session on Monday took more out of me than I thought. I rested on Tuesday as I normally would the day after a heavy workout. Wednesday was a complete wipe-out-I did hit the gym to Bench press; let’s just say it did not go well. Every single one of us has had one of those days where everything just feels heavy. So I know from past experience when I feel like this it’s better for me to save anything that I had for my next workout.Read More
