How I began
Back in 2001, I received a comment down at the pub from some mates of mine as I was scoring a game of Darts. ‘Hey Clint, nice man-boobs’.
That’s all it took
You forget how far you can let yourself slide when you’re a teenager. Going out four times a week, even on ‘school nights’, I was hammering my system with alcohol and poor food choices.’ There is a phase that you go through where no matter what you eat or drink, you don’t seem to get fat. Suddenly, your metabolism slows down and your body goes ‘hang on a minute’. It ‘s this realisation, which potentially saved my life. Its your body’s way of telling you that you are punishing it and that you need to stop. I began training like a mofo and shedding all the fat from my body (which took a LONG time as I didn’t really know what I was doing).
Fast Forward to today
I am now constantly floating under 10% body fat year round and feel happy and strong all of the time. What you learn as you get more and more experienced is that you can do things in a more efficient manner as time goes on. If only I knew then what I do now, I could have spent half the time in the gym for the same if not better results.
