Thor’s Arm Blast!

Deciding to cosplay as the God of Thunder was a brave choice as I most certainly do not have the body like Chris Hemsworth. In particular, those arms in Thor: Raganarok were so pumped they looked like they were about to explode! via GIPHY My buddy Francesc had made the most amazing Thor costume that I borrowed for an upcoming photoshoot but I needed the body to match. Realistically, the only body parts that are on display Thor’s arms so that’s what I wanted to beef up for the shoot.  I threw together this upper body workout that gave my…

Party Season Survival.

With Christmas, comes a certain level of responsibility not to over indulge. And it is boring AF. I mean, no one wants to make a total idiot of themselves at the office Christmas party but hey, we’ve all done it.

I learnt that, as well as a boat-load of other stuff when I hung out with the London Otters one sunny autumn Saturday morning. I’d been aware of the London Otters for some time. They have a great social media presence and cute outfits, which led me to feature them in an article for MTV Fit.  They’re the UK’s only LBGT rowing team and they’re super popular.

Meet Me In St Louieeee

“Excuse me, do you have a lighter I could borrow?” says Dor, taking a cigarette out of a pack. “Sure!” replies a nice American lady. She eyes him, while handing him her lighter. “Say, where you boys from?” “London, London, England!” I felt necessary to say, as if she’d never bloody heard of London. I winced. I felt so British. “London?! Then what the hell are you doing here in St Louis?!” Well, we had learnt something within minutes of arriving. The city wasn’t called St “Louieeee”, like the way we say in when we think of any Famous French…
