The majority of people that I have the privilege to meet in life know me through fitness or know my passion for the health, fitness and the bodybuilding world. I would make an educated guess of 95% of the people that know me, will know that Dorian Yates has been a huge inspiration to me in terms of his mental strength and laser like focus with the profession he desired to pursue.
I have followed Dorian and his High Intensity Training for the majority of my journey and I’ve trained with him and his son Lewis many times in the past. The thing with training high intensity is that we all think we are training as hard as we can and most likely we are training as hard as we think we can, but the lack of form and intensity is missing in all departments. For example, when I see people training biceps, they go to failure on the first exercise and then the 3rd exercise and then the 7th exercise and 21st set and yet they never execute the repetition correctly. By the 3rd set you should be at total muscular failure and all parts to the repetition should be performed strict and to total negative failure.
As the journey continues and an opportunity opens up which allows me to pursue my long awaited DY certification, I made arrangements, booked up and headed to Marbella for a week of intense training, studying and relaxing. I didn’t realise until a few weeks out that my good friend Gups was also coming along to pursue his DY HIT certification and that turned out perfect as we could share a hotel and discuss everything together as we went along. Needless to say there was no partying. It was literally a perfect bodybuilding experience, but with the whole week surrounding business with the certification. The week basically went, train, eat, rest, study, repeat. Perfect!
After the week of training and studying, me and Gups passed the course and Dorian certified us as DY HIT Master Trainers. Just saying that make me feel excited and fortunate enough to be able to have my mind set on one goal for many years and to battle through some very dark times in my personal life and to keep pushing forward to successfully obtain my prestigious certification. I’ve put just about everything I have into this one goal and now I have finally conquered a lengthy goal. It’s Now time to pass my experiences onto others, the correct way. The amount of adjustments to perform an exercise correctly is extremely in-depth without even talking about the different machines and weight.
I’m assuming people know who Dorian Yates is, but if you don’t then give it a google and you will get a good understanding of what he brought to the bodybuilding world and how he changed the game as it was known. Short 45 minute intense workouts 4 days a week was all he needed to train, but the intensity was extreme and so was the rest of variables that go with it. https://generationiron.com/dorian-yates-movie-promo/
I am very pleased to be one of the 35 DY HIT Master Trainers worldwide and I look forward to teaching people the most effective and intense way to train correctly. Keep as eye out for things coming up which you can get involved with and thank you to those that have supported me from the start… I can count them all on one hand or maybe even one finger…
