Our brand ambassador Scott Burns has taken some time out to fill us in on the secrets to his success, and a lot of it comes down to careful meal preparation and planning.

Scott's training plan consists of a 5 day split with one rest day. He alters the rep range when he wants to cut and bulk: - shoulders - back - chest - legs - arms Scott puts a rest day in between wherever he feels as though he would benefit from one and also does cardio at the end of every other session, (LISS) for about 15 minutes.
Do’s and don’ts while training at the gym. Whether it be putting the weights back or training technique
- push yourself to the limit, don't worry about 'over-training', do it for yourself, stay hydrated, aim to have an even better and harder session than yesterday! And finally, motivate others Dont's
- sit around talking on equipment, mess about with weights you're there to train, leave weights scattered, and never cut your session short because you 'aren't feeling it'
Scott's favourite food when bulking/cutting is simply chicken with peri peri flavouring and sweet potato. His cheat meal would have to be a pizza or burgers - the dirtier the food the better!
His favourite exercise would be the deadlift as he feels it's a real challenge - Scott loves lifting heavy! He also enjoys all three of the major compound exercises, including the squat and bench press. Follow Scott on Instagram here.
