A bit more about Martin...

Favourite exercise?

Dead lift. It is one of the most neurologically demanding exercises you can do. It takes approximately 420 muscles to lift an Olympic bar from the floor!

Favourite piece of kit?

Fat grip trap bar. A great way to reintroduce people who have had back problems into dead lifts, as it puts less pressure on the back.

The exercise you have a love-hate relationship with?

The prowler. I love it because it is so good for conditioning. I hate it because it hurts like absolute hell!
