Ok Ive just completed my first full year of competing , did 7 shows. Now am taking time of to add size ready for next year.
I aim to do 1 of the last qualifiers for british finals and win this then go on to place at the finals.
I aim to do the light heavy weight class under 90kg but this could change

My current weight is 88kg and I have just recovered from lots of illness ie colds , so hopefully now I can concentrate 100% on training.

Damn man if I ate as many carbs as you in the offseason I'd get fat as ****!!

Looking great btw. And damn, 7 shows in one year? I'd be ready for a LONG break after that, jeeeeze.

Am lucky with what I can eat, Am not competing now until the last qualifier for the Brits which will be the end of september, so just trying to add size now so I come in at the limit of the weight category.
