#IrishMusclePower meeting the man himself @alcocknocalves! Absolutely solid guy who knows what he's doing! It felt like I'd known the guy for years just from speaking to him. Chuck him a follow if you haven't already fellas!
Ps. I look far too happy in this picture lmao.
The CRAIC we had today with @kerrigansfoods4fitness at @irishmusclepower! Thanks to everyone for a great day and thanks for saying hi!! 😊💪🏼🍀 #irishmusclepower
We want to thank @miss_bikini_suits for her amazing gift for our office wall. Victoria and Miss Bikini Suits have been with us since our first show 4 years ago. And she is one of the first to sign up again for 2018. We know there has been no official announcement and while I could tell you location and date here and now, I think it's very unprofessional to start selling tickets and exhibition space without everything in a 100% written contract. Whilst other shows have made promises and not followed through or pulled their show, we just won't do that. We've 4 years experience and feedback from lots of you who attended. And we have listened and can make promises for a better event again. We're so excited to get this out there and with the backing of strong companies like @miss_bikini_suits behind us, we will always be pushing our thriving and amazing health and fitness industry in NI and Ireland. Together we have trophies in countless fitness competitions all over the world, and together we all become stronger. Please keep your eyes peeled for our next announcement of dates and location 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼 #irishmusclepower#2018#healthandfitnessexpo#northernireland#ireland#strong#fit#healthy

Morning Podcast was an excellent one courtesy of @philgraham01 , thanks for providing us coaches with Quality content & Information.
I always do Podcast Sunday especially after my Leg Session inspired by @lockgannon to help get movement back into the legs trying to offset the DOMS effect 😁. See below in Comments Section for the Leg Session Folks.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend Folks
3 weeks to go and the changes are really starting to come in now, no better feeling than when your coach tells you he is super happy with were your currently at :D . . . Just the push I need as it's getting really tough, just worked 7 days straight total of 62hrs and I feel fucking unreal after that little comment, last year I just wanted to quit at this point I was physically and emotionally destroyed I felt low all the time to the point of just wanting to cry and my sheer never quit mindset just wouldn't let me quit when I probably should have, it's sad but theres not one pic of me smiling on stage, this year ive just enjoyed the shit out of it, headed to London the weekend and I go out, cinema watch a match with my dad most weekends, it's.about enjoying it, im not a pro this is my hobby and in back loving it #irishfitfam#clarefitfam#ukfitfam#contestprep#quads#abs#lean#guyswithtattoos#happy#progress#irishmuscle#irishmusclepower#guyswholift

Is it to early to do a show tb?? Loved every moment of this...I loved the challenge of having to push yourself harder than ever before. . .
I hear people talk about post show blues all the time... and it's usually down to having abs one day and them being gone the next.
I had a mind set to never do a show unless I'm able to 1st accept that the shape I will be in on show day with only last for one day!
So the fact my body is changing doesn't bother me at all... I'd almost say I'm used to it from going from such a low body weight -to a bulk -to a cut and now back to a lean bulk... but one thing i didn't preper for was feeling down about loosing all my strength in the gym and feeling like I did when I 1st stepped into the gym over a year ago and having to build everything back up again. And not having confidence in my lifts. This has been the hardest bit for me...but I'm sure all you other bikini girls feel the same !! Here's to never giving up
...and to light weights for the next while 🙌🙌🙌

Some air walking with some #muscleporn thrown in at the end. Slow pull ups are a great exercise and a great way to see how your backs shaping up . Did you know that in bodybuilding the reason that the 8 to 12 rep range is so affective has more to do with the time under tension it takes to complete? 50 to 70 seconds under tension is optimal for hypertropy.
Från Europas Starkaste Man U105. Jag och Bryan fick lite feeling när barnen hade dansuppvisning emellan grenarna👌🏼Så vi dansade oxå 😃Om man kan få folk att le så fortsätt med det. Jag försöker alltid ha kul och ge tillbaka till publiken som är där och stöttar oss😉Sen några minuter senare så vart det tillbaka till fullt fokus och ladda för nästa gren, men de va skönt att dansa av sig lite 😂
From Europes Strongest Man U105. Me and Bryan got into mood when the kids had a danceshow between the events👌🏼 So we danced aswell 😃 If you can put a smile on peoples faces, so do it. I always try to have fun and give something back to the crowd that is supporting us😉 then a few minutes later it was back to full focus and get Hyped up for next event, but it was good to dance a little bit before that 😂#strongman#dance#esm#europesstrongestman#imp2017#irishmusclepower#havefun#makepeoplehappy#giveback
