I've been training in various disciplines for many years. Martial arts was always my main background until I discovered weights, which led me in to bodybuilding. I made the noob mistakes of too much isolation and too many bicep curls. Then I met an Australian ex champion Powerlifter at the gym who was an instructor. He showed me the ways of the Squat and deadlift and from then on I fell in love with the feeling of power, strength and the way of the bodybuilder.
But also I was lured in to distance running by work colleagues to raise money for charity. Now I've never been any good at running, so my aim was only to raise money for charity, do the races, enjoy them and JUST FINISH. Though being the competitive fellow I am, I put the work in, and beat them all by getting the best time. It also shifted a good few lbs of bodyfat off me.
Now is the time to take it further, I want the CUTS the DEFINITION the RIPPED LOOK! And I'm willing to do what it takes to get it ...
