6 reasons why your arms won't grow

Hi i’m Justin and welcome to my website

I’ve been lifting weights since 2004 after a friend introduced me to weight training and cardio. I’m now 37 years I remember it like yesterday the first time I set foot in the gym. I was this skinny 24 year old completely unsure where to begin…

I’m sure some of you can relate.

Back in 2003

To be honest, I was afraid to go to the gym at first. I had always imagined there would be intimidating guys there who would laugh and make fun of me if I dropped a weight on myself or tripped over something.

I used to be self-conscious, shy, and was afraid to try new things. I kept making excuses and avoided going to the gym until my sister practically dragged me there.

When I finally joined a gym, I discovered my love for weight lifting.

I met my first training buddy Chris shortly after becoming a regular at the gym. This guy had years of experience weight lifting and definitely knew how to build muscle. The guy was full of lean muscle. On top of that he’s over 6 foot.

Chris spent several years weight training and even trained with professional bodybuilders, and I was fortunate enough for him to coach me for a few years.

Within a few months of training with Chris, I managed to achieve the results I wanted. Thanks to chris for being my training partner. I’d probably be lost without your guidance.

As a natural bodybuilder, I could never never imagine ever user steroids, which is why I never did. To be honest, i’m not a fan of today’s bodybuilders you see on stage today.

Most of them use steroids to get that big.  Personally I never like that huge over sized muscular look to begin with.

I much appreciate physiques from old-timers, guys like Frank Zane, Franco Columbu, Lou Ferrigno, Mike Mentzer and Bill Grant. These guys had perfectly defined muscles and ripped abs to go along with it.

For me, finding the right balance between building muscle (without looking huge) and having a six pack was always more attractive than simply being the biggest guy in the room.

I used to think it was impossible to get a six pack but after I had moved to Dublin, I focused more on core exercises to shed tummy fat.

You’d be surprised how many guys neglect training their abs, so I decided to train abs at least 2-3 times a week until I eventually did get a six pack.

Let’s just say everyone has a six-pack under the layer of fat covering it. If you are looking to get them more defined you obviously need to train them as often as you train any other body part.



Here, I let myself go for a while, but quickly got myself back on track.

After ten plus years of training at some of the best gyms and clubs in Ireland, I am grateful I have finally found what I enjoy.

On October 3rd 2015, I competed in my first ever bodybuilding competition that I’m quite proud of.

The bodybuilding industry tells you that you need to take all kinds of supplements and use steroids to build an impressive muscular physique. Now what kind of physique are we talking about here?

The old school bodybuilders?

or the new school of bodybuilders

I don’t know about you, but I prefer the old school physique. And with a proper diet and consistent training at the gym It wouldn’t be impossible to achieve achieve this kind of physique if you work hard and stay consistent.

I have been passionate for bodybuilding for quite a long time and I feel lifting weights is something I will continue to do for a very long time so a change in my diet won’t stop me from achieving my bodybuilding goals.

I have helped several guys transform their bodies by using my workout routine and diet plan and I can do the same for you if you are serious about it.

I can honestly say there is nothing more rewarding than changing someone else’s life.

The positive feedback I have received from them is quite uplifting and encouraging.
