    Good morning everyone,

    I’m going to be honest with the blog and say how it’s actually been. Honestly not been a good time in my career. With the constant pain from my shoulders, not being able to train properly. Even sleep properly due to the constant pain. A lot of back and forth with surgeons and doctors where the news has been nothing but the worst. No one wanting to help. It has been a very very tough time to try stay motivated or hungry. Sometimes there just never seems to be an end in sight. Hoping and praying for some good news soon so I can get surgery to fix my shoulders.

    Just started back on cycle this week and hope that helps with training and brining some spark back to that side of things. There is not really a good update from me at the moment as nothing exciting has happened or will soon. Just doing what I can and getting by. Cross your fingers and hope that’s soon 🙏

    Good morning,

    Unfortunately this has been a mega boring time for me and kind of in a limbo phase. Holding body weight around 275 pounds while I’m in a cruise phase before I get bloods done. This was too not get too heavy for surgery which I don’t have a time scale on. With a few more weeks left of this phase I will see if there is any word for surgery or will I push up In to the new year. Time will tell.
    The shoulder issues will never feel or be good until they are fixed. But for now they aren’t the worst they have been. Potentially keeping body weight down has helped this. 2023 was not my year even though I gave it my all. 2024 is going to be a new chapter and a blank sheet to go chase some more goals. Hopefully better news soon to document and some more exciting things to tell you all 🙏

    Happy weekend everyone.

    Hope you are all well!

    So that’s me 6 weeks post show and I’m super happy with the condition iv managed to hold while letting my weight slowly creep up while keeping all the negative sides away. Such as water retention, excess fat, out of breath etc. this is many to list. And in this rebound phase you really need to take it gradually and progress at a rate where you can control these variables so your health stays in check and you can continue to train optimally and grow. Also allowing the correct foods to be ingested and not over do it on the wrong foods. This has been the best and most controlled I’ve been post show and I can feel the benefits.
    I’m hoping to secure a surgery slot soon and have that boxed off at start of 2024 and let recovery take place and then come back fighting fit for next year.
    Stay tuned and follow the next part of my journey.

    Thank you

    Good morning all,

    Hope everyone is well.
    So another weeks in the books. Week 4 post show and things still going well. 281 pounds and holding condition very well. Our goal was 285-290 in this condition, so slow and steady to win the race at this point. Nothing drastic or fancy needed. Just allow the body to do its thing. Still in a very responsive state where appetite and hunger are still in a very good place. Areas I’m needing to work on Seem to be growing and changing as needed.
    Another 4 weeks in this phase and we will run a health phase in to the new year.

    Noticed this week more fatigue than normal. Which is my body hitting a fast strength update over the last few weeks and it’s catching up on it. From here it’s going to be a case of a deload soon or taking extra rest days when I feel they are needed. Try manage fatigue the best I can.

    Treating this rebound and off-season like a prep is giving me the best results and allowing me to feel the best I have felt

    Good morning everyone,

    So week 3 of my rebound phase. Or reverse phase If you rather. After my show my body was feeling in a good place physically so we decided to have a nice rebound phase over a health reverse phase. Kept PED exposure in at a very moderate amount and put food to my high carb day plan for all training days and raised rest day food and my body has responded really well. All things in a really good place. Appetite is still very high. Strength and performance in the gym is climbing very fast. Body feels great and still fresh.
    Taking each session gradually and not forcing weights. Controlling form and letting strength come to me. Will continue this until I feel I can go full send on the big weights again. So far this is the best reverse/rebound phase I have ever done. 6 weeks left of this then a nice deload and recovery phase over the festive period where I hope I can get shoulder surgery done.

    As always any questions you can find me on my instagram
