• Do the basics and do the basics really well

     

    One of the most frequently asked questions I get in the gym is ‘Why do we do the same exercises?’   The easy answer is - because they work. Simple.   This might not be the answer you were looking for. There isn't some amazing new exercise/diet/detox drink out there that is the answer to
