2019 saw me achieve a long held, burning ambition – to compete in the world famous Mr Olympia in Las Vegas. As a two times British bodybuilding champion, to step on the most prestigious stage in bodybuilding, in the best shape I have ever been in and competing in the middle weight class against some incredible international athletes was an unbelievable experience! But to then place third was a dream come true. Training, diet determination and mind-set had never been as critical as it was for this journey. I had to follow a very strict supplement and workout regime and the only brand that would get me to where I needed to be was Boditronics, they never fail me on quality, performance, endurance and taste. A tried, tested and trusted brand for over 20 years, all products are manufactured in the UK in an Informed Sports accredited facility. There is no doubt at all that I would not have got to Mr Olympia or be where I am today without the fantastic Boditronics products and amazing support of the team.
A typical day’s diet for me would be:
Fasted cardio with Boditronics BCAA Intracell Xtra sipped throughout my workout. This helps fat burning, whilst preserving muscle and supporting overall recovery. My favourite flavour is orange & passionfruit but they are all amazing!
THROUGHOUT THE DAY:
ISO Express 100% Whey Isolate is an amazing, exceptional quality isolate protein. This helps me fuel my high protein diet, helping build lean muscle. The protein is delicious and mixes well. There are 6 incredible flavours but my favourite is Vanilla Cream.
Before weight training I take Red Mist V4 Pre-workout. This really packs a punch! It helps energise me, provides pump and focus, getting me through my hard-core workout. But then you don’t get the crash that you do with some pre-workouts. Awesome product!
I sip BCAA Intracell Xtra throughout my work out again. This is key to preserving muscle and aiding recovery. It’s a much underestimated supplement which should be a staple in everybody’s supplement regime, MAKE SURE YOU GET SOME!
I always use RecoverEX Extra or ISO Splash RecoverEX to help my recovery; the key factor is its ratio of carbohydrates to protein, refuelling the body and replenishing glycogen recovery whilst providing the protein for building muscle. Boditronics have really covered every requirement and taste palate with having 2 recovery products, the RecoverEX Extra comes in 3 incredible milk shake flavours and also has added Collagen Hydrolysates which really enhances the recovery process. The ISO Splash RecoverEX is made with Whey Isolate and comes in 3 incredibly refreshing fruity flavours. It’s extremely light and so easy to consume straight after a workout. It does not bloat or sit heavily on the stomach like some recovery products can do.
Before I got to bed I take Boditronics Casein Xtra, this is the ideal product for ensuring I’m fuelled throughout the night with an 8 hour slow release protein. This really helps my body recover and boost muscle building. Casein Xtra is another Boditronics staple that needs to be in everybody’s supplement stock!
