What is your favourite lift?
Gotta be the squat. It’s demanding but great because there’s so much you can do with it. It’s easy to play around with tempos, loads, and programming depending on your preferences and goals. You can also go heavy on it which is always fun. I’m also a big fan of Olympic lifting, especially the clean and jerk.
Who is your fitness idol?
I wouldn’t say I have one single fitness idol. There are a lot of people I look up to in the fitness and sports industry. Mainly I admire people with a strong work ethic and desire to become the best they can be.
If you could only use one piece of gym equipment for the rest of your life, what would it be?
A barbell. They’re so versatile and you can use them for everything. Functional training, strength training, and to build size. A barbell is all you need to train your whole body. Compound lifts are especially important to me when training my clients, and you can’t do them without a barbell.
