Did you do the fundamentals? If your schedule permitted you could also include the GB Thoracic Bridge series for additional shoulder girdle mobility if you wanted to really target the shoulders.

Hard work and dedication aside, if we were all able to excel then we’d all be on the Olympics insert appropriate achievement here podium. Fast forward to today everything on GB has stagnated except for a few updates once in a while and the public forums are near death. Ready to set another goal! Hi Joel, Cheers for your comment — I did 4 days a week on F1.


What was the biggest mistake and best idea you ever had in life? I had osteochondral fragments in my left knee. Big money difference too three times the cost.
