I studied Kungfu as a teenager. I started training in terms of lifting when I was around 22. Over the years I’ve self taught and improved my training.
Depends on my current plan/scheme/target. Minimum 3-4 times a week.
Never more then 60 mins.
This year to earn a MP and WBFF Pro Card. Also to build my website and gain/help more people. Long-term to become a name in the fitness industry and travel the world promoting fitness.
I’m not sure I have a favourite to be honest. I have always enjoyed Deadlifts.
Again, this depends on whether I’m cutting/bulking or prepping for comp/shoot. It will either be five day body part isolation or a four day compound DUP based scheme with some HIIT on the fourth day.
Diet is everything. I always eat clean and ensure I get enough protein throughout the day. Hydration is also very important and I literally only drink coffee and water. I start counting Macros in the build up to competition. I only count calories when I’m bulking to insure a calorie surplus.

Normally, some trance or house music. If I’m going for PB on a big lift then I’ll put some angry rock on.
I’ve always enjoyed Steve Cook’s mindset, advice and online content. I think he’s got a great attitude towards fitness and life in general.
Fatherhood – I became a dad in 2009 and raising a son will always be my proudest accomplishment.
Get the diet right first. It’s a lifestyle change but if you don’t get it sorted you wont see results and ultimately you’ll quit.
