Four weeks in and this is the half-way point. I’m starting to feel a little frustrated at the rate of change; I don’t seem to be building any muscle and I can’t really see any changes to my body. I know it takes time to build muscle and for fat to be burned but I was really hoping and wanting to see more muscle definition at this point. I’m not sure what else I can do apart from continue to do what I...

Week 3, I’m feeling really strong and felt great when I went for my PT session. This was a great week for building confidence as I got a personal best doing the deadlift..


The key thing for me to focus on this week is making sure my diet is correct and that I eat enough protein and carbohydrates. I’m embracing the protein shake culture and make sure I have one after every workout! I’ll also be stayin...

This session was focused on my dead lift technique, which at the moment is bad! When I do dead lifts, I end up hunching over, and I can feel it pulling my lower back.

The gym I go to in Hoylake is called the UTS (Underground Training Station). It has some amazing coaches and personal trainers. I wanted someone who was really going to push and challenge me and help me to get the strong body I’m after.  It was a real struggle trying to decide who to go with. In the end I decided to pick Skooby as he’s not going to take any shit from me and will definitely make me wo...
