Great show on Sunday!

Had a great day on Sunday at the UKBFF Muscle Talk show in Bedford. It was a busy day helping some friends out backstage and also doing some promotional work for Golds gym, I even got to present some trophies (see pic) The only thing that spoilt it was the worst decision I have ever seen that robbed my good friend Richie Goodwin in the Under 90kgs, he accepted the result much better than most would have but I did feel for him. All is going well with everyone else that I'm coaching, Danny is 5 weeks out and spot on. It's nice being off season but everyone keeps on telling me that I have to do the UKBFF Britain again in October, I'm leaning that way now I must admit.

Back in the groove

So here as promised is the first picture of my newest protege Danny Henman. It's his 20th Birthday today and I'm preparing him for his first proper bodybuilding show, the totally drug free BNBF show at St. Albans on July 31st. He's doing really well and I'll keep you updated regularly. I'll be working at the Muscle Talk event at The Corn Exchange in Bedford this Sunday, promoting Golds gym and also helping some friends back stage, please come along and say hello. Finally here's two links, firstly one for the Trip Advisor review of my holiday http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowUserReviews-g189119-d1739623-r114593719-Longevity_Wellness_Resort_Monchique-Monchique_Algarve.html and secondly a trailer for the documentary that is currently in production. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4CXHGTLyj0A

A week in Monchique

Just got back from a brilliant relaxing week in Portugal at this beautiful place www.longevitywellnessresort.com and now I feel great again, which is bad news for those that I coach because when I have lots of energy they need to have the same! Chubbed up nicely whilst away but eating clean again now, being 19 stone is nice at mealtimes but its a lot of weight to lug around in the sunshine all day so some of it can come off now. It's time for Danny to get serious too so we are having a full posing practice and diet review on Thursday, I'll post a picture of him on here after that so that you can see how my totally drug free protege, who will be 20 tomorrow, is looking.

Here comes the sun

Holiday fever has hit the gym, it seems that everyone is going away sometime soon. That means, as is usual for this time of year, dishing out advice on how to look good on the beach. Although in almost every case people leave it too late and expect miracles in a matter of weeks when it really is a year round thing to keep in top shape and look your best for the summer. A quick word about Jenson Button on Sunday and that word is awesome! The drive was incredible, as was the look on Lewis Hamilton's face as he tried so hard to be pleased for his "team mate" Spent yesterday afternoon with Caden, he's so grown up now, here he is eating with his knife and fork in the wrong hands, just like his Granddad does!

Bodies Knackered / Site hacked

Well Danny got through the leg workout - just! At one stage he was lying on the floor in agony so I bellowed at him to get up and to his credit he did. Later he was dizzy and felt sick so I put my arm around him and made sure that he was OK. That's how I coach people, push them to the limit but make sure that I care about them too, and it works, that's for sure. I too am feeling the pace, it's been months since I had a holiday so I'm counting the days. Apologies for the website being down for a while today, I spoke to Steve and he said that it had been hacked! What a nightmare, fortunatley he fixed it, what would I do without my super son!

Portugal beckons

One week of rebound training and I've gained over a stone. Highlights of the week were shopping with Natalie & the boys and curly fries with chimichangas, just because it's fun to say chimichanga - try it! I have now cleaned up the diet and am counting the workouts and days until I go to Portugal. I need a holiday and I'm also going to have a look at property out there as I do miss having a home in the sun. First though I have to get Danny properly set as his show is at the end of July, so that starts tomorrow with his first show prep leg session, I feel sorry for him because it does hurt but I know that he will respond well. They are also doing some more filming for the documentary this week, that will be at my house and Danny is going to be in it too as he is my number 1 protege. Here's another picture from my win at the NAC UK Open.
