I have gained many professional titles over the years including NABBA British Champion, Mr England, Mr UK and PCA Pro. Alongside the following titles:
- 2nd Place Worlds
- 3rd place Mr. Universe
- 2nd Place amateur Olympia in Spain
- 2nd Place diamond cup Liverpool
- 1st Place PCA Bodypower x2
- 1st Place PCA European championship
How did you get into Bodybuilding?
When I was younger, my mother took me to the gym because I was a skinny kid at 56kg and I was obsessed with muscle ever since!
How did you become part of the Chemical Warfare family?
I wrote an email directly to Kirk Elliott the CEO and Founder of Chemical Warfare back in February 2020 and lucky enough, he found me in his spam emails and instantly contacted me. Kirk has known and followed me for years, he immediately offered and welcomed me to his team under a sponsorship! I am extremely grateful for this opportunity and I am very happy to be part of this team!
What are your go-to Chemical Warfare supplements?
My top favourites have to be Intra Surgance, L-Gutamine & Iso Strike - these are a must for me! Then all of the essential range, bomb proof and citrus bergamot on top of that! I use other supplements obviously but this is my daily supplements without a fail.
Favourite body part to train?
My first plan of action is always my brain - that's the strongest muscle and the most important one! Then legs for sure the most challenging most demanding -suits my personality - I don't like when things come easy. I'd always choose the hard way so I can then appreciate the feeling of accomplished.
Describe your current training split?
- DAY 1 Chest
- Day 2 legs
- Day 3 rest
- Day 4 back
- Day 5 shoulder

Always go to maximum effort and total failure on the last 2 working sets rep range can vary depending on a body part but effort into the working sets is the key 100% or nothing.
