As of now, I’m 8 days out from competing on the Mr Kuala Lumpur 2013 stage. And I don’t want to just post updates of how I’m doing and make things all about myself. I want to share my experience so that others may learn from it too. So here are 5 things I’ve learnt from this contest prep so far.

People are often under the impression that to get fit you need to invest in expensive gym memberships, weight loss supplements and high end sports gear. Well this is simply not true. Kettlebell training requires nothing apart from your trainers, a decent personal trainer who can set you off on the right foot with a tailored programme and a kettlebell which you can buy online for as little as £11.99 and that’s literally it.
Kettlebell training is designed to increase strength, endurance and overall fitness using dynamic movements using the kettlebell itself. A kettlebell is a basically a ball with a handle and ranges in weight from 5lbs all the way up to 100lbs.
How Do Kettlebells Work?
Kettlebells are especially effective because of the way you use them. A general work out consists of holding the kettlebell with either one or two hands and either swinging or pulling the kettlebell in a way that forces the body to stabilise the core. Because of the way you move with the kettlebell you engage all muscles surrounding the core too, hence giving you maximum results.
Once you have been shown how to use a kettlebell safely and effectively you can then buy kettlebells online @ www.fitness-mad.com and carry on your work out at home! Give kettlebells a try – I dare you!Read More
When you have been weight training for a while you can often go through a period where you are not making any progress. Progress can mean many things to those involved in weight training but most commonly progress would be perceived as an increase in size and strength.

However in order to make progress you may require some extra supplements to increase your chances of achieving the physique you have always wanted. Monster Supplements have an excellent list of products in their range of supplements which can assist you in gaining muscle, increasing strength and shredding that unwanted fat. Many of these supplements can be used together so anyone wishing to obtain a muscular and toned body can achieve this by having access to right nutrition.
Nutrition is a massive part of bodybuilding. However your diet needs run alongside a great workout programme. You should probably change your programme every 4 – 6 weeks and employ different techniques such as Pyramid Training, Drop Sets and High Volume Training such as the training method Charles Poliquin of Canada has promoted.Read More
