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…

The human flag – How to

A bit of a different post this week. But who doesn’t want to be able to do the human flag… When scouting out a good spot to practice, I look for four things: 1. Correct height – I like my bottom hand to be about waist level or slightly below at the start of the…
