When did you first start training?

I started training when I was 16 after meeting a body builder in my school. From there I joined a gym near my school and went 5-7 times a week. The rest is history. Ive been training over 9 years solid now!

How often do you train?

I usually train 5-6 times a week unless I am training for an event, when I will train x2 a day 6-7 times a week.

How long do you train for?

My typical sessions are 45min-1hr 15 depending on what I am training (longer for legs, shorter for cardio and shoulders). Keep them short and intense!

What are your goals?

 Mainly Fitness physique. I am competing this October in Miami Pro in the under 75kg Fitness category.

Which is your favourite muscle group to train?

Chest and Legs (can’t beat legs).

Can you talk through your weekly workout?

Day 1 – arms

Day 2 – legs

Day 3 – chest and back

Day 4 – shoulders

Start again….

Do you follow a particular diet?

I tend to stick with a  high fibre and low fat diet. My protein comes from lean meat and I supplement with additional protein (whey, egg white etc). I am a big fan of the right carbohydrates and find they are key in fuelling a tough workout.

What supplements so you take?

My supplements are supplied by iSupp who support myself and the team really well. My typical supplements are:

Quantum – whey isolate, concentrate and egg albumin  – for breakfast and in-between meals.

Pure – whey isolate and concentrate – immediately post workout.

Meta-Rip – caffeiene and green tea – preworkout

Omega 3,6,9 – daily with meals.

What music do you listen to when training?

MOS running trax for cardio or anything loud.

When doing weights I like to have my hands (and ears free) so whatever is on in the gym.

 Who do you look up to or admire?

I don’t have many athletes that I look up to but Ryan Terry is possibly my biggest inspiration as he has respectfully achieved what most of us dream of doing and is very down to earth.

 Most of the UK fitness industry is full of fantastic individuals who keep me on track like Luke Haslett, Ben Mudge and of course team iSupp!

What is you best achievement?

My biggest achievement to date fitness wise has to be being cast and shot for Mens Health. Being on a shoot with the likes of Stuart Tomlinson and Lee Philips is an honour!

 Im hoping that Miami Pro this year will become my biggest achievement as its my first competition.

 What advice would you give anybody who wants to start training?

 It is never an easy path to follow, but those who achieve great gains do so by putting in hard graft and being fully dedicated. Don’t give up and you will achieve anything!
