One thing you realise with me is I love taking terribly pixelated rear back shots, I have a PhD in half natty lighting and I seem to wear the same shorts day in and day out πŸ˜‚ this is how my back was looking post pull session, My back has never been so thick and I must say I'm pretty excited about this 😊πŸ’ͺ🏽 the mini cut comes to an end on Sunday, so it will be time to pack on some more mass, the aim will be to progressively get stronger session to session while Keeping things relatively tight by increasing calories slowly πŸ˜‰πŸŒ±

#transformationtuesday 9 weeks into my mini cut, very happy with how things are looking and I can see I have made some pretty big improvements from last year . I'm pretty surprised with how I'm looking and how I'm feeling. Pb'd on legs last Friday, I've maintained all my strength on all push exercises (actually improved on some) the only lift that has gone down is deadlifts which is at 200kg for 7  instead of 220kg for 5 (all with reset) and I still don't feel all that hungry. As previously mentioned I had no idea what would happen when I moved to a plant based die, some probably thought I was making a big mistake but wow I'm really taken a back. Never felt better, full of energy and I have less aches and pains. I think the important thing to take note of with this is the importance of tracking you macro nutrients or making sure you eat sufficient calories. From what I have seen, when people make the change, you here all these stories of people loosing muscle, loosing strength a whole host of negatives when going vegan but the real issue isn't the fact that you can't put on muscle without animal products, it is because people simply don't eat enough food. There will be people thinking "ah he's only been vegan for 6 months and his physique is built from all those years of training" hand on heart I am legitimately telling you that I have never been this lean and muscular nor this strong at this body weight πŸ˜‰πŸ’ͺ🏽

I've had quite a few messages with people being intrigued as to what I eat daily while not eating any animal products. So here's some of today's culinary treats (no meal prep)  From left to right,  veg dumplings, veg dumpling undo noodle and a dish called greens grains and glory (minus the poached egg) all bought from itsu. 50g protein, 230g carbs, 35g fat. Today is a refeed so Calories are much higher πŸ˜‰ but I have been getting the veg dumpling udon on the daily as it saves me a fair bit of time with meal prep of an evening and it tastes πŸ‘ŒπŸ½πŸ‘ŒπŸ½

Far from shredded but a little look at my 9th week into my 10 week vegan  mini cut, morning weight of 77- 77.5kg. I was a lot more lax with food choices over this weekend, and solely focused on maintaining a Calorie deficit with fluctuations in carbohydrate and fat , this meant that I could enjoy some fries from 5guys (about a kg πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ) some vegan cakes from @mscupcakeuk (which are Amazing) while keeping my protein relatively high with the use of @vivolife raw plant protein. Training has been fantastic, I've had about 6 weeks off squats for no real reason other than being a little more Inventive with my leg regimes, with the focus being hack squats and leg press and a lot of hamstring work. So on the Friday just gone I decided to squat again, and to my surprise I  pb'd on all my sets with 120kg for 2 sets of 10 and 140kg for 6 with a few left in the tank (doesn't sound like a lot but I squats very deep, arse to grass) my all time pb on squats is 140kg for 10 but I weighed 10kg more so as you could imagine I was very happy. Last stretch now, and I am treating myself to a pretty heft refeed today πŸ˜‹ and will see how things are looking in tonight's push session. Who says you can't make gains living on a plant 🌱 based diet 😜

I'm incredibly happy with how things are looking 8 weeks into my mini cut. I've been living on a completely plant based diet (vegan) for the last 6 months. I've had no issue with getting my protein requirements through different sources and working  with @vivolife which are a completely plant based supplement company. With my research that I did prior to going meat free (when I went off meat). I was aware of quite a few Athletes in more endurance based sports that had made the change and seen great results but I had only heard of a handful of "body builders" that had gone down this route. In all honesty to begin with I was a little fearful as all I'd ever heard was that you wouldn't be able to make "gains" only consuming plants. Well as you can see im still making those gains and 4 weeks into my cut I deadlifted 220kg for 5 with reset which was an all time pb and I have no doubt in my mind that once I increase my calories again I'll be beating all previous gym bests. I have never felt healthier, recovery has improved, I seem to need less sleep as sleep quality is better. My skin is healthier. My general mood is better. The list goes on  but more importantly and what means the most to me is that no animals are be harmed 😊 I know that going vegan may not be for most particularly in the world of body building but maybe I can serve as an inspiration to others who might be thinking about make the change. Im very fluid with my Instagram so for those that are interested or would like some advice then be sure to comment of simply send me a dm 😊

I promise I actually wear more than just these grey shorts πŸ˜‚ mini cutt update. So here's how I am looking at week 8 into my mini cut 78kg πŸ˜‰decide to hold the pose more classic as I'm really enjoying trying different styles of posing out. As I previously mentioned I will be continuing this mini cut for a further 2 weeks. So I let my foot off the gas a little last week, I had a few days rest and had a few higher carb days when I felt like it which meant as you can see, I look pretty full πŸ˜‰πŸ‘πŸ½ One thing that has changed with my training and something that I have never really done. I've been taking more rest if I need it and it really has had a huge impact on my ability to maintain strength this (mini cut) I feel raring to go in every session and super alert. Don't be scared to have a little more rest is you really need to. It really can do wonders for your gym performance πŸ˜‰πŸ‘πŸ½ going to dig a little deeper these next to weeks and see what we can achieve πŸ’ͺ🏽

It does make my day to showcase the hard work that my online clients have put in 😊 @rackett_michael has absolutely smashed this years cut 6 months between the two pics, we kept things a little slower this year and reduced calories slowly, the results speak for themselves, literally look like a completely different physique . We've been working together for the last couple of years and he just gets better and better year by year. Well done bro πŸ˜‰πŸ‘πŸ½ for anyone Interested in online coaching be sure to send me over an email or dm 😊

Completely unedited footage of way back last year when I was deep into prep and was pretty lean. Ill be updating you all with my mini cut update during the week. I implemented some refeeds during last week which had an amazing impact of my condition and gave me a nice boost. I've decided to continue for another two weeks as i am feeling great. I hit an all time pb on leg press last week and my bench is still as strong as 7 weeks ago. Excited to see how I look at the end of all this and very happy that I had pretty much maintained (in some cases increased) my strength 😊πŸ’ͺ🏽

Throwback to the British finals and probably my favourite shot of me on stage. People talk of body building being a bit of an illusion, you'd be surprised but at 5.9 foot I was weighing about 152lbs/69kg pre carbed up (yes super light). Only time will tell with my extended off season how much I will weigh when I hit the stage again, in all honesty my actual weight doesn't interest me but I foresee the look I want to attain. I've put on a fair bit of tissue already and with the knowledge Ive gained from doing my own prep I can only imagine that I will hold onto more when the time is right to dial in πŸ˜‰πŸ’ͺ🏽

#transformationtuesday 6 weeks into my mini cut and here's the progress so far. 83-84kg left(consuming 3500-4000 calories) down to 78-79kg right (consuming 2500-2700) (fluctuations in weight are due to hydration levels some mornings more hydrated than others) my mini cut has been a breeze so far with no real hunger and energy levels are at an all time high. Strength has plateaued with a decrease in strength on some of the heavier compound lifts like deadlifts only marginally (220kg for 4 instead of 5) but my deficit has been pretty substantial so energy stores have been more depleted. Very happy with how things are looking and really noticing that I have put on some decent tissue post contest. Some may wonder why I would go about a mini cut if I don't plan to compete for a while, well to be honest I was getting sick of eating so much, I've never had this problem before but due to the huge change in diet (becoming vegan) food volume is far greater and I would find myself literally force feeding myself of an evening, which wasn't fun. I have 2 weeks left of this mini cut and may very well continue for another 2 all dependent on gym performance, basically if I feel I am loosing to much strength.

Apologies as always for the use of my potato πŸ₯” cam but I was pretty happy with how my back was looking post pull day πŸ˜‚  yes I know my legs look like baguettes in this shot but I don't care πŸ‘πŸ½ I don't think my back has ever looked so thick and this makes me happy as I have been completely animal product free for going on 5 months! as always the foundation of my pull workouts are based around heavy rows, and pull-ups, followed by isolation work. I actually keep deadlifts in a separate hamstring dominate leg day as I like to feel fresh as deadlifts are so taxing πŸ˜‰πŸ’ͺ🏽

Mini cut update. Body weight 78kg. Calories have been at around 2500-2700 this last week, keeping protein around the 180g mark, fat at 45-60g daily (very low I know) and the rest of my calories filled with carbs, I've been pretty lazy with meal prepping so I've been buying most my food on the go, itsu has been a staple for the last few weeks, with the veg dumpling udon noodles being a favourite dish of mine which  is vegan and packs 26g of protein. Starting to notice a little dip in strength on some of the compound lifts after the first couple of sets. I'd hazard a guess that this is nothing to do with actually loosing any muscle but more so the fact that I have less stored energy as calories are very low (for me) Im actually quite surprised how low my calories are and how good I feel, I really don't feel all that hungry and I'm feeling energetic. As you can see my abs are really starting to come through now and I'm really liking how I'm looking at this point 😊 2 more weeks of this mini cut and we will see where I am at. Like previously mentioned I may extended it another two weeks but this will depend on how I am feeling at the time πŸ˜‰πŸ’ͺ🏽 hope you all had a great weekend 😊

So as previously mentioned here's a little mini cut update. Really happy with how things are looking. Body weight floating around 78-79kg morning weight. Strength has been climbing on all upper body work, deadlifts are a little down which is inevitable as my weight drops. Feeling great and full of energy. Calories have fluctuated between 2500-3000 daily @vivolife sups have come in extremely handy, as I have been able to maintain well over 180g protein daily while reducing calories. I wasn't sure how my body would react cutting on a plant based diet, but it has been an incredible experience and dare I say it, easier than when I was eating animal products in terms of satiation as generally I don't feel all that hungry even though I'm on a fairly large deficit. It will be interesting to see how the next few weeks go, I may extend this mini cut another 2 weeks but time will tell πŸ˜‰

Thought I would put a comparison up over the last 2 months (left pic may, right pic July) it maybe hard to see but I am definitely noticing some improvements, looking thicker overall with my chest looking quite a bit fuller, before I get bashed for skipping leg day and all that, look back through my earlier post and you can see my legs aren't to terrible πŸ˜‚ I'm half way through my mini cut at the moment on a 1000cal deficit  and looking better week on week. I'm going to take my calories down even further though by probably another 500 to tighten up even more over this last 4 weeks.  I'll be updating you all with current condition this coming weekend πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ŒπŸ½

What do you think of my filming skills?? Pretty decent haha. Apologies πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ so I've been on a deficit for the last 2 .5 weeks and a pretty hefty one of 1000 calories, I'd only had 4 hours sleep πŸ™ˆ but I was able to hit 220kg for 5 reps with reset tonight, which is an all time pb.  What's more interesting though is that fact I have been completely animal product free for I'd guess 4 months now maybe more. It will be interesting to see how my mini cut effects my strength but at the moment I'm still getting stronger πŸ˜‰πŸ’ͺ🏽

Ah the famous velux window pics πŸ˜‚ throughout all my prep this was my favourite shape of all. Looking pretty full still at this point. My mini cut has been going great, strength has been climbing session to session even though I have been on a 1000+calorie deficit. I've been working with  @vivolife for a couple of months and what can I say, there sups are fantastic, my go to products are sustain, which is a plant based BCAA and perform raw plant protein, salted maca caramel being my favourite, they have made my life so much easier as I have no issues with hitting my protein requirements now. My condition at the end of this cut won't be anywhere near the pic you see here ( id been cutting for 4 months or so at this point) but it will be interesting to compare and see if I have made some physical improvements, especially as I haven't been eating any animal products for quite some time now. One thing I have noticed  is an overall increase in thickness as my body fat drops which is great😬πŸ’ͺ🏽 6 more weeks of deficit and we will see where I am at πŸ˜‰πŸ’ͺ🏽
