Discover the Full Boar Sports Team: Sean Barber
Sean Barber specialises in Online Transformation of his clients, as well as being a Prep Coach and of course one of Full Boar Sports’ very own athletes! His accolades have earned him champion status in the bodybuilding community, having won multiple regional bodybuilding championships, as well as becoming the British Champion and a PCA PRO.
Sean’s aforementioned accolades, paired with Personal Training Certificates make him highly qualified to serve his clients, of which there are over 90 - a mix of lifestyle and prep clients.
We caught up with Sean to talk everything bodybuilding including his career roots, successes, supplements and everything in between.
We asked Sean to lay out exactly how his career panned out:
“My fitness journey started when I was around 17, gym now and then with no real direction, training arms every other day. Then, 7 years ago, my training partner decided to prep for a show. I went to watch and support him and from that moment I was hooked into bodybuilding. One year later I competed in my first show and came 6th in men’s physique. I then took 18 months out to grow and improve and came back into the classic to take 1st place. Since then, I’ve gone on to win many regional shows, a British title and my PCA PRO CARD”
Sean uses a split muscle group approach to training and regularly uses Strom Supplements at the core of his regime. We asked Sean for his top 5 and why…
Formulated to provide support to bodily functions, SupportMax is a favourite among athletes and general lifestyle enthusiasts. Containing Vitamin D3, Selenium, N-Acetyl Cysteine, TUDCA, Betaine HCL, Citrus Bergamot, Hawthorn Berry, Co-Q10 and Dandelion Root, SupportMax is designed to help support the natural immunological defences in the body to aid longevity and recovery.
EAA, or Essential Amino Acids are amino acids which the body cannot produce naturally. Therefore, they must be consumed through diet or supplementation. Amino Acids play an essential role in the development of muscle, various crucial chemical reactions in the body, prevention of illness and the list goes on.
Amino Acid deficiency can lead to immune suppression, digestive issues, fertility issues and, again, the list goes on. Strom’s formulation uniquely includes L-Alanine in place of tryptophan. Tryptophan being a precursor to 5-htp can induce drowsiness which is undesirable intra-workout.
Strom HydraMAX is a winning formulation designed to provide a natural and optimum mineral balance whilst also helping to maintain optimal hydration levels. It contains: Cranberry Extract for improved urination and its natural antioxidative properties; Coconut Water, Ascorbic Acid and Dandelion for their hydration and vitamin contents; Taurine for its osmotic properties which allow more fluids to be held inside muscle cells.
Strom CreaMAX is one of the best creatine products on the market. It provides a clinical dose of the patented Creapure ® ultra high purity creatine as well as ActiGin. Creatine is one of the most well researched compounds in the sports industry with solid evidence that it improves athletic performance, particularly high-intensity performance, speeds up muscle growth and supports various muscular functions.
Interestingly, some new data shows that creatine may in fact help with Parkinson’s Disease and other neurological ailments. ActiGin is a proprietary product that is a formulation derived from highly purified Panax notoginseng and Rosa roxburghii. Its purported effects, backed by various clinical studies, are of increased muscular endurance and improved muscular recovery.
Strom StimuMAX is a pre-workout that contains Citrulline Mallate, a combination of Citrulline and DL-malate. Citrulline is a non-essential amino acid that does not aid muscle growth but instead benefits the urea cycle, aiding the removal of toxins, particularly ammonia as well as acting as a vasodilator. It also contains N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine and Beta Alanine which are both amino acids helping with various bodily functions including muscle synthesis and improved muscular endurance in high intensity exercise to name a couple. Finally, a good dose of caffeine is provided for an immediate performance booster, helping with muscular output and mental stimulation.
