On Sunday evening, I came to the scary realisation that I’d skipped more consecutive days in the gym than ever before during my two years and two months of training.
Five days. Yep. Five.
Now, five days of absence from the gym might not sound like much to most people, but for me, it felt like an eternity. Even during my five-day vacation to Miami back in February, I still managed to find to go to the gym three times. What can I say? I just love training! It is a huge part of my lifestyle and it’s what I live for.
I knew Monday’s trip back to the gym was going to be intense: High volume, heavy sets and plenty of food and Bio-Synergy supplements to keep me fuelled.
My Current Training and Nutrition Goals:
I am currently trying to hit all muscle groups twice week whilst being on a calorie surplus. I have a very high metabolism and I like to train pretty high volume, so my daily regime may not work for everyone, but feel free to give it a try.
