MyProtein MyPre review

Having acquired a couple of flavours of Myprotein’s new pre workout; MyPre, I put them to the ultimate test….. Leg days! First off we’ll start with the taste. I chose the Sour Apple first and wow does it pack a punch! It immediately reminded me of some super sour but tasty sweets I had as…

Quick at home cardio

After a long day and commuting I do not need performing cardio to be long or laborious… so, having taken a bit of inspo from Mr. Ben West (@benwestfit, see photo!) I just smashed out a quick “8 minute and 8 second” mini session in the kitchen. Best of all, no equipment was needed at…

A pain in the Butt

The Reeves Deadlift

As the star of Hercules, Goliath, and dozens of other bare-fisted, bare-chested adventure flicks, Steve Reeves helped lay the groundwork for latter-day action icons like Schwarzenegger, Stallone, and Van Damme.
