I’m back with more banter,
Raise your hand if you’re a serial yo-yo dieter, a fan of fad diets, a spoof for those silly celebrity endorsed diets, the low-carb to no carb queen, along with all the other nonsense sh*t we allow ourselves to be sucked into.
Because I’m guilty on all counts, bar the stupid celebrities- screw tv and screw the media selling us someone else’s lifestyle, I’m happy with mine thank you.
I’ll be the first to raise my hand and say when it comes to diet I’ve experimented with everything, some I’ve gotten results from and so..
When people look from a distance they see your strength, your courage and your forever shining determination. They see you are independent and you have bigger goals than fears. But they don’t know that this wasn’t how we always were, it’s taken years of practice to build and maintain, just like a killer physique. You see we’ve faced our demons, both real life ones and those within ourselves. Obstacles have become a part of life we no longer fear.
I tossed this topic over and over in my head for many years, neglecting to really acknowledge or feel it again, it’s often easier to embrace..
Over the years I have wanted to be a whole heap of different things, some I conquered and some I detoured from (we’ll say detour because I don’t believe in failure). My main goal along the way was to be genuinely happy and in love with my life. If you know me, watch me or follow my Instagram, you’ll know I have an obsession with happiness. I have always been a firm believer in doing whatever it means to be content with your life. But if you’re daring and if you want more than the average well then sometimes happiness is a little unavailable momentarily.
Like I said I wanted ..
Sportswear branding is very important to customers. No longer is a brands success based just on price and affordability, customers want to be representing certain ideologies and support athletes too. A lot of times I when you ask people why do you wear that brand of gym shorts or vests, it is due in large to their idol or favourite athlete sporting the same brand. Very few times when you ask them this question do they tell you it is because they like the design. Stone's they do say however 'because it was cheap' as supermarkets like Aldi are seeing more and more of for example (a place where I..

Normally we call it pet hates however I wanted today to talk about pet likes. I was asked by big Red Apparel to talk about something other than gym clothes in my most recent blog, instead of talking about the latest fat calipers and gym shorts today I get to talk about my other hobby besides bodybuilding. A vet little known fact, but something so many people love when they find out is that I am a keen reptile enthusiast and hobbiest.
I currently have a spare bedroom in my house that I use to home several really useful boxes (rubs) and vivaruims. At the moment I use these to ..
No matter what you do in life, no matter what you like or dislike, their will always be one memorable feat that will never be repeated. on the 9th July 2016 in the bodybuilding/powerlifting world we saw just that, a feat that i genuinely do not believe will ever be beaten. Eddie Hall deadlifted 500kg yes that is right five hundred kilos. At the first direct arena in Leeds, West Yorkshire, Eddie Hall deadlifted one thousand one hundred pounds. Thus beating his 2015 world record of 462kg by 38kg, that is almost a plate (20kg) per side! in just one year to be able to lift this much more is just i..
Carbs, Curves and God Damn Cellulite!! Nothing is ever just straight forward right? You can’t have those nice rounded hips that flow into a big booty and chunky thighs without having that unappealing cellulite. You can’t even enjoy the bloody carbs without thinking about the cellulite. I don’t think there’s a lady out there that doesn’t hear me and if you don’t understand me believe me you will, just give it time. It’s like waiting on a train to come in and its coming…
I never quite got it, I didn’t really understand when girls couldn’t wear that short little dress on a Saturday n..
We get so busy living in the past, days of better times, moments of absolutely happiness that we miss out on what's right in front of us. We all do it, just some of us stay in the past a little longer because the present ain’t as pretty, we leave yesterday take over, stories of years gone by get the better of us and break us. Triumphs and failures- they are in each and every one of us. We celebrate the triumphs differently, just like we pick ourselves back up different.
You look at that girl or guy who seems to have it all figured out, mister happy go lucky, with the massive..
Some people may think that they are healthy and they may even fall into a healthy weight range, but they could have way too much body fat and not even know it. This is why it is important to use a body fat tester to see exactly how much body fat you have. Excess fat is associated with several medical complications and diseases such as high blood pressure, heart disease, heart attack, stroke, diabetes, some cancers, and high cholesterol. Simply using a body fat tester to monitor your percentages of fat can greatly increase the chances that you will not have to worry about those medical complica..
As I write this, I sit here i am coming off the back of 5 days of been foggy minded, groggy, sick and with no appetite. It is only when things like this happen to me and I am ill of health, that I begin to appreciate been in good health. When the sickness hits I become more conscious about the amount of fluid that I take in and the religious intake of vitamins and minerals that I take in however a few days later this ‘new found respect’ for health begins to slip away again.
The diet of a sick person is far easier than someone an eager fitness person or bodybuilder who ..
Nothing will ever beat the hunger you have for the gym the first time you touch the iron. The first time your muslces contract and blood begins to engorge the muscle and though everyone else your arms may look the same, you feel like they have ballooned to twice the size.
You feel every rep past that enjoyable pump feels like your skin is tearing and your arm is going to either pop or fall off. Yet you keep going, you feel amazing in both mind and body and want to push as hard as you can to grow and become more like that guy you saw on the front of a bodybuilding magazine wearing a ..
In a world that craves beauty over brains, a world that encourages women to need the attention of a man to feel valued, societies that encourage women to be soft and feminine, rigid to the confines of society, where certain sports are unfeminine and strong is frowned upon, female muscle is ugly. Be the woman who challenges, be the woman who is unbreakable, don't be a pawn in the game, be the queen and change the rules. Don’t be a Kimmy, be a Dana Linn Bailey, and be a force to be reckoned with.
I thought 2016 was a new era where women were less concerned about beauty and more abou..
