This weekend sees the return of the Body Power expo at the NEC. This is a brilliant expo and I am very disappointed that I can't be there this year. As I won the UKBFF show at this event for the first 2 years running it has a special place in my heart . The problem is that I had my final eye surgery on Wednesday and I can't drive long distances yet, also I have to protect my eyes which means that I would have to walk around the expo in sunglasses which is not an image that I want to project! I'm also having to miss training for a few weeks while they recover so I'm going stir crazy sitting about all day! On the plus side I now have HD vision for the rest of my life and it means that I have been able to spend some extra time with Lilybelle. Here is Granddad's Princess in my new jacuzzi, she loves bubbles!

Firstly a massive well done to my mate Martin Stevenson who placed 5th in the NABBA Pro-Am at Brierly Hill yesterday. Martin will now go on to the NABBA Britain in 2 weeks where he has a great chance of winning the Class 1. Thanks for all the kind comments about the new workout video, it was deliberately done while I'm off season and drug free, there are enough videos of me in show condition so this was a nice departure. There is a new "music" edit now online so please click this link and share it www.youtube.com/watch?v=D33DaxHuJDw I couldn't get to Martin's show as last week I had eye surgery to one eye, I had the lens replaced and it's still too blurry to drive long distances. The other one is being done at the end of this week and after that I will have HD vision and never need my reading glasses again! Finally, last week I spent some time with one of my favourite people in the whole world, 5 year old Bailey who had her Birthday last week. I've known Bailey since she was a baby and she just gets more beautiful every time I see her as you can see from the picture.

As the good weather has gone away again and we are all back indoors you might want to look at these links. Firstly, the new workout video is now on YouTube www.youtube.com/watch?v=VauUKYmNhLk Also the new special feature has finally been uploaded http://www.kevanwilson.com/YoungstersOnSteroids.pdf Finally please have a look at this video and you will be amazed http://vimeo.com/64287458 I knew Donna de Lisser when we both trained at Body Limit gym in St. Albans years ago but we still occasionally keep in touch. She always trained well and had great potential despite being only a few years younger than me. She then moved to Ian Dowes gym in Archway, Ian was a great help to me when I first started all those years ago so I was not surprised when he got Donna in such incredible shape that she recently won the Miami Pro fitness model contest despite being the oldest competitor on stage!

It's been a busy week. As well as the normal training and coaching on Wednesday the TV production company filmed my next workout video. I'm hoping to have it on YouTube within the next week or so, please subscribe to my YouTube channel and you can be among the first to see it. On Friday I did a coaching session with the owner of my clothing sponsors www.repraw.com and afterwards we did a photoshoot which will be on their website soon. Finally, a little bit of politics. David Cameron and his Etonian buddies should realise that on Thursday it wasn't about a protest vote, it was about what an increasing number of people are demanding, a Britain run by Westminster and not by the EU!

To answer some things that I've been asked, two of them as a result of the last blog. 1) If you have ever taken Decadurabolin or Growth Hormone you are not recognised as drug free until 10 years after your last injection. 2) Yes you can build and maintain good legs without steroids, heavy squatting or deadlifting, this picture of my legs was taken this week. 3) Yes Tyson Fury was excellent against a much smaller opponent because a good big 'un will always beat a good little 'un. More to the point, Fury will be beaten by David Price and finally 4) You can only measure your success by what you have acheived and what you have; not by what you talk about doing and having, just remember, anyone can talk.

Happy St. George's Day! Winter training has gone well but because it was so cold and wet, my knees have been painful for the last 6 drug free months. The steroid Decadurabolin is commonly used to lubricate and ease joints but while I'm drug free all I use is glucosamine and fish oils. I've had to alter my leg workouts drastically, the days of "arse in the grass" squats have long gone but I have been regularly repping out at half a tonne on the 60 degree leg press, albeit with limited depth. I've now changed that though and cut the weight to just 300 kilos but I'm dropping the weight so deep that my knees are on my shoulders, hopefully that will shock the quads into new growth. No such worries with the upper body as you can see from this "Repraw" pic.

Having a long off season is working well for me. Im training drug free, 4 x 75 mins a week, with good intensity whilst on a high carb diet. I'm 18 stone at an estimated 15% bodyfat and I feel great. The secret is that I train alone when the gym is virtually empty, like a lone wolf, with just one focus, strictly there on business. Often I'm accompanied only by music that is not too loud, yesterday we had Kings Of Leon, awesome music to train to, I love training in this way. After training is chat time and Martin & Kerry always have a laugh with me and any other members who have come in but only when the work is done of course. Finally, I have been well kitted out by my new clothing sponsors www.repraw.com the clothes look good for casual wear too as you can see in this picture taken at the gym on a day off. More Repraw pics to follow!
