    @Jim , fucking awesome writeup! Congrats on your success mate.

    Couple questions:

    1. How many times have you competed now?
    2. Has Panther's gym got a full mirror posing room?

    This will probably be the toughest question to answer...
    Tbh I just dnt know...
    Few things rolling round the old noggin really...
    1- would love an Arnold Madrid invite for about this time ish next yr as they have a 85k class and this is where I see my self at my absolute best.
    2- With the Amateur Olympia being in the UK next yr it seems like too big a chance to pass up... Would love to do that as well...
    3- I dnt really wanna comp at national level again unless I have to next yr... right now for me it's ether international or nothing...
    The reason being is our bab is due mid Feb... So life is gonna be mental what with George a new bab and work and trying to fit a prep in to that so I'd only really do all of this next yr If it was for international competition as I'd love to compete against the best in Europe and the world!
    4- Take a full yr off skip the Brits next yr and come back as a light heavy in 2016.
    I think realistically I could have been 83k this yr in same condition so for me to be where I wanna be in the 90s I need to add another 4-5k from now that's 1k every 5 months... I feel this is very realistic and attainable and would have me a shredded 87k or so...

    So yea gotta lot of questions to ask and see what invites I can get then make a decision from there...
    Atm I feel like im in limbo... James wants me to stay u80 for now and dominate the class, I assume he wants me to make a name before moving on to 90s and getting lost maybe?
    Iv not spoken to him properly since the finals and due a chat today...

    Mate depending who you use and the service they give it could make all the diff!
    Honestly changed my view on competing and prep and being coached... Was best thing iv ever done in bbing was hooking up with James!

    Thanks bud
    2010 stars Mr 80 3rd
    2011 stars Mr 80 4th
    2012 south coast Mr u80 1st and overall
    2012 British finals 8th (going by score card as only top 6 are placed).
    2012 stars Mr 80 4th
    2014 kent Klassic Mr 90 2nd
    2014 British finals Mr 80 1st

    So as you can see... quite a lot and it's been condition that has held me back every time... always striated gluts just smooth over massively on the day due to stupid decisions...
    Now I'm with James this will be a thing of the past and I'll start to unleash my true potential that ppl have told me for yr's I have... Feel like iv waisted so much time... wish I'd have hooked up with James from day one... I'd have a much better track record if I had!

    Yea they do... Full wall mirrored just off the main gym area

    Awesome read mate and definitely a deserved win!! Onto the next chapter now :)
    A close relationship between client and coach definitely makes one hell of a difference.

    NICE! TBH would make sense to listen to james and James only. He is a pro himself and has certainly "been there done that." Too many cooks spoil the broth and all that.

    Can you see rear shots in the mirrors in panthers too? The only place I have access to mirrors to see my rear shots is in my sisters house who lives 200 miles from me so I only get to check progress every few months! Panthers is close to my work so would be great to go there at times.
