Going head-to-head with my training buddy…

Here we are then. Competition week. Time to rest and eat. Eating’s the easy bit. The resting, not so much. There’s not much to really tell you apart from the small matter of my fourth competition in three months. So what happened? Oh, I came second. But more about that later… This week, I also […]

PBs, van pulls, Oreos and holy fuck! 1 week until the comp!

Time is flying by. How the hell is it June already? I can’t believe that instead of putting the finishing touches to my blog this time next week I’ll be pulling vans, deadlifting cars, tossing kegs and all kinds of other stupid stuff. Despite doing this comp for fun and the photo opportunities, I’m still […]

Breaking Bad, Godzilla, Nando’s, Chicken Wings and Oreos. Oh, and training…

Welcome to another week of me eating a load of shit (my diet really needs sorting…) and training for a comp that might kill me! Haha. This week has felt incredibly long and I’ve been really grumpy. Thankfully, once I’ve got through this week, there is a long Bank Holiday weekend, so I can have […]

Training, training, training. Oh, and a personal victory!

Well, not long now! The comp is within sniffing distance and I still haven’t tried pulling a van! Oh well. That’s probably the least of my worries. Or maybe it’s just the tip of the iceberg. We’ll see. This comp is going to be my last one for a while: it seems utterly ridiculous that […]

Recovery, gluttony and it all starts again…

Hello!! I decided not to bother you with ramblings about fuck all last week. I didn’t train at all so apart from the mountain of food I ate, there wasn’t much to tell.  Don’t worry though, I’ll give you a brief summary of that gluttony in this post!!  Last week… Last week, I mostly ate burgers […]

Competition 3 disappointment and other whining…

So here we are! Competition week, and as you can imagine, it’s been full of stress, worry and nervousness. Much of the stress I’ve felt has been about my weight. After last week’s success, my weight has really fluctuated, which has caused me to become even more irrational and obsessive! So, be prepared for me […]

One week to go and I’m crapping myself!

Tired beyond belief this week, but thank fuck it’s only a four-day week this week, oh and next week! The competition fear has also started to settle in. I really want to qualify for the finals, and after last Sunday’s epic pressing fail, I just don’t know whether it’s really feasible! In terms of making […]
