Not a bad day in the office

It’s taken me ages to get round to writing this post and, to be honest, I wasn’t sure if I’d even bother. But actually, last Sunday’s competition was probably the most important competition I’ve ever done (and today is 12 months since I did my first Strongwoman competition: Britain’s Strongest Woman), so as I’ve bored […]

Is there such a thing as a self-belief supplement…?

Wotcha! I told you I wouldn’t be able to keep up the blogging again. Ah well, I’m sure you haven’t missed me!! This week’s training didn’t get off to the best of starts. Up until this point, things have, generally, gone well with this cycle and I have felt that the projected numbers were within […]

Oh hello! I’m back…kind of!

Hello everyone! It’s been a while… My biggest fan told me off for not writing anything for a few weeks, so I thought I’d better placate her with a post full of really exciting shit.* (*this post is probably only exciting for me. Sorry.) The reason I haven’t posted is because I was boring myself. I mean, […]

Paintballing sucks.

Oops. I appear to be a day late with my blog, and as usual, I have nothing to say. Sunday 16 November Again, work has got in the way of my training schedule, so I had to lift today rather than on Wednesday. I still don’t like lifting on Sundays!!! Bench press: 20kg x 10 […]

A new mesocycle, yoga and a new Powerlifting federation

I’m back from my rather enjoyable deload! Man, did I need it!! Matt’s made some changes to my programme for this cycle, which has me focusing on leg drive and quad development. It also contains the most vomit-inducing back exercise: 50 pull up reps!! Luckily, that comes next week, so I have time to prepare myself! […]

“Ouch! That fucking hurt!” and training at the Weights Room, Dover (with a bit of a gym review)

This week, I hurt myself whilst doing cardio, and popped down to Dover to visit family. They’re the highlights. You don’t need to read any more 😉 Monday 27 October I was so fucking excited about this workout: max double squat. I’ve been feeling really good about squats lately, and just knew I was on for […]

More food. More squats. And more deadlift meltdowns…

Week 4 of my off-season mesocycle, and I’m definitely looking forward to deload (week 6). You never know, I might have the energy to tidy up my flat! My diet has totally gone off the rails and I’ve gained 5kg in 5 weeks! As Matt would say, “Gainz”. Luckily, I still just about fit in […]
