How things have changed🙌🏼 When I started on this fitness journey all I had in mind was to be the best I could possibly be and not let anything get in my way! I have had multiple injuries, had times when I couldn’t be bothered to go to the gym but I still went because the fire inside of me is too strong to achieve great things. This just goes to show what can be achieved if you put the work in a embrace the fitness lifestyle.

A 5kg fat loss was enough to turn my frown upside down. 😂
I often get asked for advice regarding fat loss and especially belly fat and I can only talk about my experience with this.
As we get older, our bodies naturally want to store fat around the mid section and it is harder to lose. So many people tell me they are doing everything right but they can’t shift it. The body is a funny thing and if you push too hard too fast with fat loss it can have the opposite effect. Under eating and over exercising as well as lack of sleep can all impact fat loss. Anything that raises cortisol (stress hormone) too much can lead to storing fat. That is why you should aim to remove as many stressful things (including people) from your life.
In terms of nutrition, what works for one will not necessarily work for all but everyone should aim to eat nutritious whole foods and eliminate as many processed and pre-packaged foods as possible. This is what we refer to as clean eating. What worked for me was focussing on eating lean protein, increasing green vegetables, eating healthy fats and replacing white starchy carbs for healthier options like sweet potato, brown rice and oats. I find that when I cut back on carbs I am much more likely to lose fat.
I feel like a broken record when I talk about intermittent fasting but it was a game changer in that it was the tool that eliminated cravings for me and made fat loss easy. I won’t go into details here but eating all my meals from roughly 12-8pm gave my digestive system a break and got my body to use stored fat for energy.
In terms of supplements, I find protein powder to be the one I can’t live without purely for convenience. When it comes to fat burners I won’t touch anything but natural ones like black coffee, green tea, chilli and cayenne pepper.
Cardio can be great to aid nutrition in burning a few extra calories and fasted hiit cardio is preferable to me when not doing too much other strenuous exercise. I now however only do low intensity steady state cardio (walking) as I lift weights 5 times a week and I just want to help my body recover on my rest days rather than raise cortisol further. 😊

I compiled YEARS worth of research and trial and error into a video less than 8 minutes long, where I tell you the MOST USEFUL pre workout ingredients AND what dosage you need to take for them to be effective 🔑
If you don’t care much for understanding what’s in your body, you can skip to 6:45 for 5 great pre workouts but I’d highly recommend the rest of the vid 😅

Another good pic although my traps tend to eclipse the rest of me! At least my forearms got a look in this time.....
Forearms and traps have a lot to do with your muscle insertion points, genetically mine are quite good but heavy curls, heavy hammer curls and shrugs help me a lot.
Don't beat yourself up if a bodypart is getting where you want it to be, people seem to forget that a lot of our strengths and limitations are genetically bound. Being natty means being realistic about yourself and moving forward from that point in a honest and realistic way!! No I'm never going to run fast or jump high, play the piano or do a backlip at 110kg..........but I can lift heavy sh*t, bust out 75 pressups in a minute
and can handle myself standup or on the ground. Be happy with what you have and work on it, throw away the jealousy.... Get my point? #naturalbodybuilding#bodybuilding#power#traps#biceps#armday#strength#fit#ukfit#ukfitfam#hulk#flex#pose#giant#forearms
