A word from Richard: I am excited to be joining The Bodybuilding Warehouse team. I am looking forward to the opportunity to utilize my knowledge to help new and existing customers. For the past nine years I have served in the British Army, as an infanteer and completed an operational tour of Afghanistan. Currently I work full time as a personal trainer and prep coach. In 2013 I competed at the UKBFF Mens physique in Leeds, placing second in my first competition with an invite to the British finals. With this great opportunity to work with BBW, I hope to be able to offer my expertise within all aspects of the industry.
In off season i train alone, 5 days a week for about an hour per session. I hit one muscle group per day split into, chest, back, shoulders, arms and legs. I prefer to use high reps, 12 - 15, and 3 to 5 sets per exercise, averaging about 5 exercises per workout. My workouts are pretty intense and i always lift as heavy as possible. I always use progressive overload, and also like to switch it up some weeks and do a whole session of burn outs/drop sets on everything. Comp prep training, totally depends on what week im in and what level my metabolic rate is at, but i will start off with zero cardio for the first 4 weeks, just normal weight training, and then start to implement LISS and HIIT along the way as i progress.
