    BCAA INTRA HARDCORE™

    X-PLODE HARDCORE™

    SHRED-X RIPPEDCORE™

    Background information:

    I have always, from a young age, been highly involved with sports in some way or another. However, I didn’t start going to the gym seriously until I was about 21. From there, I trained regularly for a further 2 years and it was only just after I turned 23 I decided to compete competitively in my first bodybuilding show. Since then, I have competed 6 times, placing top 5 in 4 of those shows and have been awarded a pro status in both fitness and muscle model categories.

    Interests:

    I love all sports, mainly rugby, football and cricket, then of course my biggest interest is bodybuilding!

    What are your top most effective exercises whilst training?

    It would have to be the deadlift! For me personally, this is my favourite exercise as once you’ve mastered the correct technique it’s easy, but trying to keep that form while lifting heavy is a lot harder. The deadlift is a compound movement which helps you with overall body strength, which to me is important.

    What does the future hold for you?

    Hopefully a long lasting career within the fitness industry. I want to help and inspire others to start out and complete their own fitness goals in life. I would love to become a WBFF PRO one day and compete with the best athletes from around the world at a pro show.

    Top tips for someone wanting to get into fitness…

    My best advice for anyone starting out in the fitness industry would have to be first of all make sure you love what you do and always attack each task with a positive mind-set.

    Secondly, I would say consistency is key. So stay true to your diets and true to your training. Where possible, try to stick to a good health routine. As that in itself will help anyone wanting to start in this industry.
