Splitting up Leg Sessions, so quads and hamstrings are separate. Keeping it simple❗️On the menu for today it's Heavy Quads & Calves... Food first though😋 #LegDay #Legs #Dontskiplegday #Foundation #compoundmovements #squats #legpress #asstograss #quads #calves #health #menshealth #bodybuilding #bodybuilder #weightlifting #weightlifter #insta #fitfam #fitfamuk

I'VE NEVER BEEN SO SORE IN MY LIFE 😳. Okay maybe an exaggeration but I trained calves on Thursday night for pretty much the first time (I'd done body weight calf exercises before in circuits but never weighted concentrated exercises). I only did 4 x 20 calf raises on the smith machine with 5kg either side and a bunch of other lunges/glute focused exercises. Yesterday I was feeling okay but I've literally been hobbling around like a cripple/gremlin today 😂🙄. It keeps it interesting to try new exercises, although can't remember the last time I was this sore, lots on stretching in store for me! #progressnotperfection #saturdaysession #legday #calves #postworkout #teamnocalves

Just 2 and a half more weeks til I'm home. I can't wait to see our newborn babies and the bottle babies we'll buy. We had 2 heifers and one little bull calf born this year. #calves #babies #calvesofinstagram

Some DB pressing with the 145 (65kg) DB's & 130's (59kg) from todays chest session. It's safe to say DB pressing strength is an all-time high, hoping to smash the 150's in the next 2 weeks. #thatdroptho #diditevenhappen #nospotterzone

When your calves are as big as your thighs 😂 always had super muscly calves and I always used to (and still do) feel self conscious about them as it's something people always comment on, the amount of guys who said they wish they had my calves haha💁but now I take it as a compliment and I'm proper starting to love the muscle definition, always amazes me how people just have no calf muscles, how do you walk?! 😋

The last few days the weather has not been great in #London. From chilling #spring mornings to random hailstorms, a lot of people have been using this as an excuse to stop #keepingfit and to not go to the gym/park and train. ------------------------------------------
Don't let anything stop you from keeping on track with your #progress. Find a way to hit your daily target, whether that's miles or steps, and break though new barriers. ------------------------------------------

Cattle was a vital part of ancient Germanic culture. Its importance is made evident when we consider the Swedish word for cattle, 'nötkreatur', where 'nöt' has the original Old Norse meaning 'property'. During olden days the cows and bulls must therefore have been of such importance that the collective word for them was synonymous to "the things you owned that were of particular worth and importance" .

The importance of cattle is as evident if we consider mythology, or even human anatomy.

In Norse mythology the milk of the cow Audhumbla gives nourishment to the giant Ymir, from whose body the world is created, and her licking on a pillar of salt forms Bure - the father of the gods.

When considering anatomy, we can see that Europeans in general, and Swedes in particular, have a genetic mutation that enables them to drink bovine milk, which people from most parts of the world find harder to do. This is the result of positive selection, where people who could drink the cow's milk, with its high content of vitamin D, had an easier path to survival in the cold, dark North, where vitamin D from the Sun was not as abundant as in most other parts of the world. It also gave them an alternative source of calories during times of famine. Some of the earliest finds of this genetic mutation in Man has been found in Falköping, Västergötland, Sweden. It might not have arisen here however, and could very well have arrived with immigrants from other parts, as have most, if not all, cultural and natural expressions we now think of as constituting genuine "swedishness" .

Everyone's at #LaBoracay while I'm at #LaBagasbas, trying to learn surfing while swallowing lots of saltwater. We all know bodybuilders hate sodium. 😂
