An enjoyable evening with Tommy Staunton
The wife and I had a nice evening yesterday at a Q&A session with Tommy Staunton 2012 Nabba World and Universe Class 4 champ.
He was really informative and down to earth and very candid about all aspects of training, most there wanted to know about cycles etc and he gave all that he knew from experience and gave his opinions again stating that it was just his opinion from experience rather than what he had read or 2nd hand knowledge.
He's very realistic when talking about training and nutrition giving advice, quite often telling people to put things into perspective that bodybuilding is just a hobby, and you job puts the food on the table and roof over your head.
Whilst I was probably the smallest guy there, and looked like I didn't belong, I was probably looked at with envy because I had my wife there with me and she was as interested as me!!!! Had some good conversation with her coach as well.
What surprised me the most is that he only does a cycle in the 16 weeks coming up to competition and doesn't use anything off season. I didn't get a chance to ask him whether taking nothing off season really meant just a TRT dose cruise or really nothing at all.
