Unleash the BEAST!!

January 31, 2017

‘Beast grips’ is BEASTGEAR latest product and it’s another stormer!! Beast grips have been designed to improve grip strength by strengthening the muscles in the wrist, forearms, shoulder and neck.

Every time we use BEASTGEAR the customer service is outstanding, whether it be in…

So welcome to a brand new spanking year of 2017! Goal setting is huge for making your dreams more attainable. New year, new you….. What does that even mean?! There is always a lot of ‘fluff’ around New years. “I’m going to get into shape this year” “I’m going to try to be healthier” These are meaningless and massively vague!

Cardio for the gibbon (cardio without running)

September 6, 2016

Let’s define a gym gibbon first: A muscular beast who feels more comfortable on a bench press than running a mile. For reference, I am not saying this is a negative thing because I can be one! However we have to get the dirty C word (cardio) in somehow, and no that isn’t adding two more reps to each set. Because of the need for cardio (you heard me –…

Coconut water. Hydration hack or myth?

July 4, 2016

My friend thinks he’s smart. He said “Onion’s are the only food that makes you cry”….So i threw a coconut at his face. No real relevance just made me laugh. Anyway! Hot topic, does coconut water work as a hydration aid or is it all a load of rubbish?! Big companies have made millions by enlisting celebrities to endorse their products, Harry and I don’t believe in that crap we…
