Why I love it: The whey protein blend I rely on during competition prep. My favourite flavour has to be Chocolate but I equally love Rocky road and Salted Caramel.
How I use it: In smoothies, with water post workout, sometimes with milk before bed if I am running low on Casein for recovery.Add 1kg Chocolate Thermowhey to cart
Why I love it: This is one of the most innovative product Bulk offers. I absolutely love the macros a 100g pack offers. Tastes like a dream and only takes 2 mins to make. Fits perfectly in my breakfast or a tea time snack.
How I use it: 2 perfectly made pancackes with 4 scrambled eggs, handful of mixed berries and a hot cup of tea. Makes the perfect high protein breakfast.Add Vanilla Protein Pancakes to cart
Why I love it: A cheat snack I depend on without actually cheating. Takes 2 mins to roll and tastes like a dream. 100g pack offers 35g of protein and I usually include it in my pre workout meal.
How I use it: With my Pre-workout meal - usually with some fast acting carbs like rice cakes and honey.Add Protein Ball Mix to cart
Why I love it: My go-to carbs and protein blend during my off season. The 2:1 carb and protein ratio makes it a great product for muscle recovery. In a nutshell it is a perfect mass gaining supplement.

My fitness eBook contains my full training plan where I break down training each of my muscle groups by day.
Mondays for example I train my back using a variety of lifts and machines like:
- Wide grip pull ups / 4 sets of 12 - 15 reps
- Close grip pull downs / 4 sets of 12 - 15 reps
- Barbell bent over rows / 4 sets of 12 - 15 reps
- Deadlifts / 4 sets of 8 - 10 reps
Between each set I'll usually go with a 60 second break to recovery slightly but still keep my heart rate up.

My approach to nutrition
My meal plan and frequency of meals depends on the goal I am trying to achieve.
During off season I keep my carbs and protein intake on the higher side 2:1 ratio and keep my fat intake low whereas during a competition prep I reverse the carb vs protein ratios and add in some more healthy fats into my diet.
What is my average daily calorie intake? 3500 during off-season and about 2500 during competition prep
Are there foods you avoid? Why? No sugar in my diet for obvious reasons. I use Bulk Nutrients' Stevia instead.
Foods I crave... I crave for sweet stuff when I am on a calorie restricted diet, but Bulk's Protein Balls and Pancakes always saves my day.
My ultimate cheat meal is... Has to be a Big Juicy Beef Loaded Cheeseburger with sweet potato chips. Burgers are life!
