So what’s your story?

I first joined a gym about 4 years ago but went casually and was not very committed. I didn’t concentrate on working the whole body just really chest and arms. It was only last year when i went to Barbados and saw my holiday pics that i really told myself that I want to get ripped, fast!

It was around that time that I got into acting and I always wanted to play a Super hero / Action role and wanted to be in great shape for my trip to L.A in August.

Although I got in good, better shape, on returning to the UK, I decided to qualify as a Personal trainer. I wanted to be the best personal trainer I could be for my clients and be an example to them to get the physique they desire.

This year too, I have landed some awesome acting action roles which I have needed to be in shape for.

Alongside Acting and Training, I want to compete next year as a Fitness/Muscle model and earn my Pro card. This will be a huge achievement for me and one i think about everyday which motivates me to eat well and train hard.

What does your current training schedule look like?

I usually combine my training in the following ways;

  • Strength training
  • Muscle gain training
  • Muscular endurance training
  • Flexibility training
  • HIIT training
  • Long slow duration training

With this I usually work 1 or 2 body parts in each session, usually finishing with some cardio and abs. I will work all body parts throughout the week.

I usually train 5-6 times a week. A typical week would combine all these training methods.

If you’re wondering my flexibility training usually involves Bikram Yoga and Swimming

If you have to pick only 3 exercises, what would they be and why?

I would say:

  1. Bench PressIt makes me feel like superman! A great feeling when i pyramid this knowing that i am giving it my all.
  2. 2k Rower time challenge – I love the way I feel after this, its exhaustion but an inner strength i get when i do it in less than 6:50
  3. Squat – The feeling of all my lower body muscles working is an incredible feeling with the drive I give off my heels is pure power! Love it!

What is your diet like?

I try and eat as healthily as I can. I  try to balance Protein, Fats and Carbs as much as I can. I have tried to filter starchy carbs out of my diet by replacing them with good fats although this has been quite a challenge for me.  For 6 days of the week, I will eat pretty healthy but one day I have my cheat meals. (Chinese food, Haagen Dazs ice cream) for example.

Typical day would be;

Breakfast – 3 Scrambled eggs (Only 1 yolk), with some lean turkey, salad and some fruit juice. 1 slice of wholemeal toast

I always have quite a big breakfast

Mid morning – Fruits or Mixed nuts and Protein shake

Lunch – Grilled Chicken with half avocado, kidney beans, sweetcorn, lettuce, olives, nuts

Mid Lunch – Fruit or Nuts or Fruit and Fibre cereal

Dinner – Salmon with Spinach, vegetables salad,

Late night snack – Activia Yoghurt

You taking any supplements?

My Protein shake of choice is by PHD, Synergy,

  • For Workouts – I usually take 5 x BCAA’s and 2 x Beta Alanine capsules twice a day Pre and post workout.
  • For diet – I also use L’Arginine and Citruline 2 capsules per day

In addition to that I have:

  • 1 cod liver oil capsule,
  • 1 vitamin b3,
  • 1 Omega 3, 6, 9
  • 1 zinc capsule.

Favorite bodybuilders:

My favourite bodybuilder to have ever lived was Serge “The Black Panther” Nubret. A real inspiration for me.
