“Somewhere inside all of us is the power to change the world.” - Roald Dahl
Slightly unrelated but an amazingly inspirational quote nonetheless! Plus I wanted to showoff that I can bench 140kg again after not being sure I would ever be able to do it again! 😎😂 I’M BACK!!

“Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
- Marianne Williamson

AK-47s, Uzis, M40s, helicopters, tanks... fun day at @battlefieldvegas! Thanks for hosting us! 🔫 🚁 🇺🇸

Im lucky enough to call these amazing people my family and friends.
Spending a few days down in Vegas chilling... when I say chilling, I mean shooting some tanks, machine guns, watching some shows and relaxing by the pool! 😁

My grandad was a dispatch rider in WW2, a military messenger racing around on a bike not too dissimilar to this... a Matchless G3/L. I’m going to restore one up one day, chrome it up like this one and it’s going to look sick!!

Some more pics & vids from my hike of Pulpit Rock, Norway 🇳🇴! If you don’t like heights AVOID THE VIDEOS! Lol 😂

Preikestolen/Preacher's Pulpit/Preacher’s Chair/Pulpit Rock’ is somewhere I’ve wanted to visit for many years... then I saw it on the new Mission Impossible: Fallout movie and I had to visit! Thanks Tom! Haha
After the hike being closed yesterday due to storm Ali, my buddy Royce and I were lucky enough to only be faced with 20mph winds instead of 50mph! Haha
At 604m (1,982 ft) high looking down the fjords below, this is this is now top of my epic hike list for sure!
Thank you NORWAY, and thank you Tom! 🇳🇴

WHAT A FLIPPING DAY!!
My first ever skydive and as you can see from the pics, I was nervous as hell!! 😂 BUT, I powered through as I believe a regular toe to toe with fear is a GOOD thing for personal development!! I pushed myself through my irrational fear of the parachute not opening and my 95kg body hurtling to the earth below at 150mph with nothing to slow it down... It’s not the fall that kills you, they say, it’s the sudden stop at end! Haha
People will tell you, “you’re gonna love it”, “it’s so peaceful up there, you’ll forget all your fears”, “once you’ve jumped you’ll realise the irrationality of your fears”, etc, you know the comments! Well, they’re all lies!! Jumping out of a plane at 15,000ft hurtling to sudden death in the next 49 seconds doesn’t dissipate a fear of the parachute not opening, if anything is actually accentuates the fear as it’s now ‘real’!! Haha
BUT, it doesn’t end there... Once the parachute is deployed, you then have the worry of the harness not holding you in!! Hahaha
Well anyway, it’s safe to say I’m happy to be back on solid ground! That being said, I’m really glad I did it as it was quite possibly the scariest thing I’ve ever done!
Thanks to my bro @dcfreestyle for the last minute opportunity and for metaphorically ‘holding my hand’ during this very tough time! Haha

I wouldn’t normally take pleasure in beating a 71 yr old pensioner at an armwrestle... but this is my dad; 3x world champion, old man strength level 100 and it was only last year he beat me last! Haha.

Ragnar Lothbrok gains ⚔️

SAVE & TRY the Kirlew Curl in your next arm session! I’ll be giving it a go again with 5lbs in just a few short weeks! Haha. Apologies for the horrible sound of the moving weights!
The exercise consists of a standard ez curl followed by a drag curl.
Standard curl: elbows stay static
Drag curl: elbows retract behind the body and bar drags up the body

Walking into the weekend like...
Wishing you all a fantastic Easter weekend!
I'll be heading back home to the U.K. 🇬🇧 on Sunday, but not before shooting some big ass guns and watching a bit of LDS General Conference! 🔫🙏🏼😂
