Anyone missing a leg above the knee (more especially both legs above the knee) will appreciate how difficult this is but with the right set up from experienced professionals, a proven training program and peer support you can take life to a wholeeeeeeee other level.

Hopefully I’ll get some downtime mid-year to go back out to Oklahoma and attend the Dream Team Prosthetics Bootcamp to sharpen some skills and mentor some newbies.

If you’re a bi-lateral amputee and you’re looking for a higher level of independence hit up @randydreamteam and get along to Bootcamp like I did 9yrs ago.

With the right tools, training and support, individuals with bilateral above knee limb loss can be full time prosthetics users! Pushing perceived limits everyday and rewriting the books on impossible!! That’s what our 2018 Bilateral Training Camp in June is all about!! •

Join the team! @dreamteamprosthetics @macnubbin

This just popped up on my Facebook timeline from a few years back.

Team work makes the dream work

Me and my main man raiding the top shelf for some treats 🤣🤣🤣

This weeks Throwback Thursday goes back to when myself and some of the lads got invited to a special screening of Batman vs Superman the day before its official release where we got to meet with @henrycavill and I had the honour of speaking on stage for 10 minutes to the audience and tell them how the @thermcharity had helped me and my family and how they help all Royal Marines and their families when they’re in times of need.

I read a lot of personal development books, listen to audio tapes, read motivational quotes etc... but I’m pretty sure I created this one “from adversity comes opportunity”

When things like this happen that quote often runs through my head and I’m always hugely grateful for all of the opportunities that have came my way over the years

Here’s the thing though, a lot of the time you have to have your eyes open to look for the opportunities and be willing to receive them, when they come along you have to embrace them and you’ve gotta be grateful for them.

Everyone goes through tough times in their lives and sometimes it can be REALLY difficult to look for the good in a situation but if you look hard enough you’ll find it.

Would I have had opportunities like this if my life had turned out differently? Who knows, I tend not to ask myself that question too much but instead I choose to focus on and be grateful for all of the good things that have & will come Into my life and then build them into something positive

I know I haven’t posted much lately but that’s because whilst I’ve been recovering from the laser eye surgery not much has been going on but today I went down to Cornwall to visit my friend @mrandrewrobbins and started listening to this audio book by @johncmaxwell

I’m always preaching to you guys to maximise how you spend your time and most of the time when I drive I listen to Podcasts and audiobooks and I’m really enjoying this one so far so thought I’d recommend it to anyone in the market for a new audio.

It’s a personal development book & I found it easy listening, go check it out.

That’s all I wanted to say 😊😊😊

So this is how my weekend has panned out.

Hopefully I’ve said goodbye to the glasses forever now after undergoing corrective laser surgery on Friday to give me vision equal to Superman’s 😆

If you’ve never been through it before or you don’t know anyone who has it’s a pretty quick procedure with minimal discomfort considering they slice your retina and zap your eyes with a laser.

I’m not gonna lie, it wasn’t a nice feeling on the drive back, my eyes were painful and very sensitive but I’ve just about got a decent level sight back now so can see my phone and all the eye drops etc... are working well.

Hopefully by Monday I’ll be back to full strength although I’m not allowed to lift weights for the next week 😔😔😔

And... what’s your excuse today for not giving everything you have?

Listen to this badass on our latest podcast episode! Trust us, his story will amaze you

Mark nearly died in the Helmand Province of Afghanistan while serving as a Royal Marines Commando after he knelt on an IED

Thankfully, his brothers in arms moved as quickly as possible and called in a MEDAVAC. While on the Chinook, he was drifting off due to the loss of blood. The medics on board the helicopter decided to use a drastic procedure that had only been discovered 3 days prior and he would be the first person they’d ever tried it on

In an unsterile environment and while the Chinook banked left and right, they performed this drastic procedure and he is able to share his story because of it

Mark is the first triple amputee from the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 and when he’s not training for the Invictus Games, he shares his story of resilience and the importance of having a never quit attitude to life.

Repost from @mentors4mil using @RepostRegramApp - PODCAST ALERT. 🚨
In the early hours of Christmas Eve 2007, Royal Marines Commando Mark Ormrod was out on a routine foot patrol in the Helmand Province of Afghanistan when he stepped on and triggered an Improvised Explosive Device. Thanks to the swift action of the men around him and the intervention of the Medical Emergency Response Team he was airlifted via helicopter to an emergency field hospital in a desperate attempt to try and save his life. An innovative and dangerous procedure carried out onboard a Chinook helicopter en route to the hospital did save his life. He woke up three days later in the UK in Selly Oak Hospital, Birmingham: Both legs amputated above the knee and his right arm amputated above the elbow. He was the UK’s first triple amputee to survive the Afghanistan conflict.

Mark joins Robert, Scott Kinder, and Scott Johnson to share his story of how he never lets his circumstances or past define who he is and his relentless effort to live life to the fullest. Mark is always free to share his story to inspire others and he finds ways to give back to those who can benefit from his amazing journey.

WOW! Found this beauty in the archives last night.

This was from late 2008/early 2009 when me and the lads got invited to the premier of the new James Bond movie Quantum Of Solace.

As difficult as rehab was back in those early days they’re still some of the best memories that I have. We quite regularly got to go to star studded events like this and meet film stars, musicians, tv stars and as you can see here even Royalty.

Daniel Craig was the star of this particular bond film, when he arrived I had nothing to get an autograph on so grabbed a Sharpie, took off my peak cap and got a signature squiggled on top

I’ve still got it boxed up in a display case in my office 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

So I’ve been cleaning out/re-arranging the Man Cave this week and just when I was about to throw a bunch of stuff out I came across this.

Now I have no idea where it came from or who gave it to me but what I can tell you is that this picture was taken roughly 6 months post injury when I walked to collect my medal at my units medals parade

As I was just about to screw it up and bin it I had a brainwave! Why not do the same with this as I did with my Invictus Games shirts and auction it off to the highest bidder with the proceeds going towards my JustGiving page

Now I’m not sure what kind of person would want a 3ft poster of me hanging about their home or office but if you’re crap at darts it’d make something great to practice with, if you happen to live in an area with an above average crime rate it might help scare off burglars or if you have several cats at home who need house training it might make a novel ‘practice pad’ for them to crack their business on 👍🏻

Anyway I’m gonna do the same thing as I did with the shirts and give 24hrs from now for people to get their bids in, highest bidder wins. Not only do you get to help me clear out my Man Cave of junk but you also get to feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that your cash is going straight to The Royal Marines Charity 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻

Just playing around with a new video editing app this morning

Not a great video but I’m sure as I use it more I’ll get my rhythm and start to find my style so I can really start mashing some cool videos together.

Got back on the bike this morning for the first time since Christmas 🤢🤢🤢

25 minutes HIIT training with Brian on the rower beside me, then had a play around on my new @limitlessgymequipment machine

This thing really is versatile, I could do so much with it my biggest problem was actually deciding what to do! •

I’m looking forward to discovering everything this equipment can do as I start to play around with it a bit more.

For now though it’s an afternoon of networking and then I’m cooking a Valentines dinner 😬😬😬

P.S pull ups are soooooo much easier without legs 🤣🤣🤣

Massive thank you to @empiremattweston for sending down my customised Concept 2 erg today and the lads at @limitlessgymequipment for the free trainer, tomorrow’s session is gonna be EPIC!!!

I’ll try and get some footage of it or at least some stills, either way it’s gonna be a smashfest with all this kit.

So that’s a rower, a hand bike, the limitless free trainer and a small stretching and recovery area complete with the foam roller of discomfort and the massage chair of distain! •

I didn’t have any excuses before really why I couldn’t train but now I definitely have none 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻
