Was all about speed work, after squats it was deadlift, conventional (left) & sumo (right) both with 140kg + 20kg of chains, comparing my technique & speed of both styles, not much in it with regards to the speed but feel technically my sumo pull is much better, #strongman #strongmantraining #strongmanmotivation #powerlifting #powerliftingmotivation #weightlifting #gpcgb #gpcpowerlifting #deadlift #sumodeadlift #deadliftday #speeddeadlift #chains #chaindeadlift #speedwork #comparisonvideo #gymmotivation #gymrat #ironaddict #asgardarmy #asgardian #thorathletics
Another champion to add to the list I've had the pleasure of working with. Cat was in a class of her own at the recent East anglia bodybuilding championships and won both her category and overall with ease. Super proud of her and looking forward to pca comp in Norwich #prep #champion #bikini #asgardarmy #asgardgym #newmarket #bikini #overallwinner #pca
Good Morning Asgardian's. If you didn't know, over the weekend we had a few Asgardian's competing in various Bodybuilding events across the UK... We are proud to say that the individuals competed brilliantly, represented Asgard and did themselves proud. We’re even more delighted to report that the Asgardian's had a massive success rate in their respective events and bought home the BLING!!! Kirandup - 1st time competitor finishing 2nd place in his respective event at the UKDFBA. Kirandip was coached and prepped by himself. Stu Saunders- 1st time competitor finishing 1st in the over 35's category men's physique at the East Anglian Bodybuilding Championships, and 1st place overall. Stu was coached and prepped by Paul Turner. Catherine Wisbey- 1st time competitor, finishing 1st in the open bikini class, and 1st place overall female at the East Anglian Bodybuilding Championships. Catherine was prepped and coached by Paul Turner. Phenomenal results for the guys and cementing Asgard as the place to train. We are products of our environments and you don't get a better place than Asgard. Huge congrats to Catherine, Stu and Kirandip. Our Asgardian's Warriors. #asgardian #asgardarmy #warriors #winner #bodybuilding #canfinallyeatcarbs
ASGARDIAN’S Please LIKE/REPOST & TAG. Get the word out. OPEN TO ALL MEMBERS AND NON-MEMBERS OF ASGARD As previously mentioned, Gracie Barra, Newmarket will be setting up shop in Asgard from now on. Ian Sheehan is our resident head coach who will be overseeing all training undertaken at Gracie Barra, Newmarket. I’ve taken the time to collaborate with him and get a few words so to properly introduce you to Ian, This is what Ian is about: Ian is a retired U.S. Air Force veteran, Special Missions Aviator of the Combat Search and Rescue 33rd Squadron. Click the following link to see a video of him during this time https://youtu.be/0JLogzysroc His family is circled around BJJ. He trains, competes, and coaches; his wife and two sons train at his academy. His oldest, Jak, actively competes as a yellow belt. With over 20 years of varied Martial Arts experience he started at the age of 15 in Normal, Illinois. Originally training as a Muay Thai kickboxer under Don Heatrick (https://heatrick.com/), he started BJJ officially in Okinawa, Japan in 2013. Ian joined Gracie Barra in 2015, he soon moved up the ranks to become a IBJJF Ranked Competitor. In January, 2018, Coach Ian was awarded his purple belt directly from Professor Victor Estima of GB Nottingham. Why teach? Coach Ian sees what Gracie Barra BJJ does for him and his immediate family. His goal is to pass the knowledge he's gained to others; be it for Martial Arts knowledge, self-defence, confidence, a sense of community or just for fitness. Seeing his students gain from his teachings is what brings him happiness.

Asgard 4.0 UPDATE. We don’t mess about at Asgard. When we say we are upgrading, we upgrade. The cardio suite is being built as we speak and Mark is throwing it up to his usual high standard. He built Asgard from the ground up so tip your hat to him when you see him. The cardio suite is going upstairs to make way for all the new bits of kit coming towards months end. But you won’t be secluded in a box. We’re knocking through and you’ll have a brilliant view from up high looking down on all the other Asgardian’s pumping gunz and tightening buns. 👍🤟🤘 We are also doing our bit for the environment with help from a local grant scheme. We are swapping out all the fluorescent tubes downstairs and the high bay lighting upstairs, for planet friendlier LED units. It’ll really brighten the place up and reduce our businesses carbon footprint. Ventilation is also happening. Primarily upstairs where it’s getting stiflingly hot in the summer months. Our A/C units are being upgraded and overhauled with additional fans and extractors to circulate the airflow. Be proud of your gym, without your membership non of these upgrades are possible. You’ve helped us to build the best training facility Newmarket has ever seen. That’s not up for debate, it’s fact. No one comes close to what you’ve helped us achieve. From the staff and owners of Asgard Fitness Ltd, we salute you 🤘🤘#asgardian #asgardarmy #givingback #evolving #investing #cardio

Gódan dag Heathens (Good Day in Norse tongue) Little update on the 4.0 upgrades. We listened to your comments from a few days ago and got our heads together. We have decided to go with the majority of Asgard as a whole and not the individual. So, if you chose a bit of kit that we haven't, that's why. But all is not at a loss. We aim to spend a little bit every couple of months on continually upgrading what is already a pretty good set up. Thor's Hammer has been dropped on the following bits of kit: 1: Hip/ Beltsquat machine (Watson) 2: Adduct/ abduct leg machine (Watson) 3: Stepper cardio machine (Stairmaster) 4: Full sized cable cross over (Power Fab) 5: Smith machine (Power Fab) 6: Seated dip machine (Power Fab) 7: Standing hamstring curl machine (Power Fab) 8: Standing lateral raise machine (Power Fab) 9: Extra 500KG of plated weights (Jordan) 10: Static shoulder press bench (Free from Power Fab) 11: Several items yet to be announced. Big changes are in the making for upstairs. Again, do not despair if your selection hasn't been chosen, we aim to please everyone but sometimes this is just not possible. Special shout out to Carl at Power Fabrications for throwing in the free shoulder press bench, and for giving the best customer experience. This man is a star. WE ARE ASGARD#alwaysevolving #listening #listeningtoourcustomers #alwaysinvest #customerservice #asgardian #asgardarmy #powerfabs #watsongymequipment
We don't consider ourselves frugal. We pay it forward. We have always had a grand design in mind, an end game so to speak, of what our dream gym would look like. We kind of achieved that last year. But things change and we are rolling with the punches and evolving to match the current trends in the fitness industry. We are making Newmarket's biggest and best gym even bigger and better, if that's actually possible :) Shout out down below what you think our new upgrades might mean. Let us know what YOU want in YOUR gym. WE ARE ASGARD. P.S No, you can't have a Sauna. No, you can't have a swimming pool. Yes, you will be getting a kick ass gym to make you savages happy. #getyourtrainingon #investing #asgardian #asgardarmy #yourchoice #newkit #alwaysevolving
What being a gym owner really looks like 😃 Lucky for me I love a bit of vacuuming #asgardarmy
Today has been another in the ever increasing list of disasters that are hampering prep for my next competition, and frustration levels are reaching critical now. First was a shoulder issue at the end of April, then about two weeks ago was an elbow injury picked up at work, and today I find out that the cause of some niggles and mobility issues I have is a sprained pelvis. That’s right...PELVIS!!! Which in turn has sent my glute into lockdown. I did however pick myself up a little red number from @asgardfitnessltd to cheer myself up. These set backs have made it pretty difficult to keep up the Asgardian mindset of late but I’m lucky enough to train at a gym where I am surrounded by seriously supportive and knowledgeable people, which is helping me stay focused. It’s not an injury, it’s just an opportunity to learn more about how my body works, and how to push its limits. #asgardarmy #weareasgard #nopainnogain #fuckyoupelvis #strongmantraining
#Bodypowerstrongman comp done & dusted, & what a tough day in the office that was, no where near my best comp, had two very poor events but finished 23rd out 35 competitors. #bodypower2018 #strongman #strongmancompetition #bodypowerexpo2018 #log #logpress #yoke #yokecarry #deadlift #silverdollardeadlift #conanwheel #loadingmedley #asgardian #asgardarmy #thorathletics #thorathleticsteam

A few pics from yesterday’s XC race over at Phoenix Cycleworks. I had a great time, even if my facial expressions tells you differently 😂 The heat definitely made it tough! #mtb #phoenixcycleworks #mudsweatandgears #firstrace #lovedit #buzzing #sunshine #scorcher #asgardarmy #hardtail #boardman #29er #wontbemylast #sorryforallthehashtags
Hit a pretty significant milestone today.... my first peeing deadlift 🙊😇 I’m super disappointed I didn’t hang in there for the lockout on the third rep, but no lie the pee freaked me out a little bit. Can’t say I’m used to peeing my pants 🤷🏻‍♀️ First slide is 140, second is 150. Regardless of the distracting situation, a top set of (almost) 3 at 150 was definitely max effort and only 12.5kgs under my current PR, so I’ll take it. #repPR #peedmypants #totallynormal #eeeeekk #ohwell #yolo #hypesquad #strongmandan #hulkmode #grrrlarmy #asgardarmy #powerlifting #bodybuilder #powerbuilder #sinemetu #withoutfear #8weeksout @grrrl_clothing @ryderwear
First time posting a leg pic 😂 finally not as small as they were!! I freaking love training!! the days when you notice the slight difference makes it all worth while 💪🏻 🤙🏻 #asgardarmy
Killed a cardio session on the static bike this morning . A decent workout with over 18 miles in an hour . My cycling game needs to step up massively . If you know me well and know what I'm planning you'll know the end game is complete and utter insanity. But every moment of brilliance that was ever a success undoubtedly had a touch of lunacy in the sound of it before it was achieved . #recordattempt #cardioworkout #staticbike #cycling #cardio #asgardarmy #addicttoathlete #strong #nevergivein #nevergiveup 💪 #neversurrender
Had to force myself through circuit training today. Well, @catherine.r.wisbey forced me through it! I just wobbled and whimpered #gym #asgardarmy #circuittraining #feelbetter #getitdone #health #fitness
Opening hours on Monday 07 May will be 08.00 to 16.00 folks! #asgardians #asgardarmy #bankholiday #getyourtrainingon
All it takes is you and will power...plus a great gym like @asgardfitnessltd and a great gym buddy @kentlaar44 to help you aim to what you want or push you that little bit further, not enough people feel good about themselves these days and in a non big ego way I do feel good about myself recently in everything I’m doing 🙌🏻 to much negativity in world at the moment! It’s way easier said than done but just begin with feeling good about yourself 👌🏻💪🏻 #gym #asgardarmy #workout #summersummersummertime #summerbody #summerready #tattoos #ink #feelinggood #positivevibes #nofilter #nofilterneeded
Heavyyyy leg sesh on Sunday started with a high bar 6x2 at 120/264. This may not look so ‘high’ but compared to my low bar this felt higher than CO on 4/20. Followed that with a 5RM sumo deathlift: 132.5/292. Not sure by how much, but this was definitely a rep PR. Don’t worry @bigjay_c I still had lots of volume after... it’s just not as fun to watch! 😉 #highbar #skyhigh #coloradonative #gotoxygen #notaboutthatlife #likeitlow #thatlowlow #getlow #yingyangtwinfeels #hairmask #ipromiseicansee #violetvibes #theincredibles #nocapes #deathlifts #pullsumo #peachgang #adultasfuck #highlyaggressive #livesore #powerlifting #bodybuilder #powerbuilder #sinemetu #withoutfear #asgardarmy @livesore
