Keep the questions coming guys. I am travelling abroad for work tomorrow so I will be without internet access for a couple of days but i will then catch up with all questions and pass the torch on before too long.

No I dont play rugby as a hobby. It wouldnt be very compatible with weightlifting to be honest. You pick up little knocks and bruises in every game (even if its just for fun) and this would definitely hold you back in weightlifting training. I miss it, but being involved with rugby in a coaching sense helps keep me in the sport so that is good compensation.

I have been lucky enough to have travelled alot. I have been to probably about 15 states in the USA, I have been to over a dozen countries in Europe like France, Germany, Belgium, Holland, Portugal, Italy, Switzerland, Croatia, Denmark, Czech republic and Andorra.

I have also been to Canada, China, Egypt and Brazil. It would be hard to pick a favourite. Brazil was one of the most fun places. Insane night life, beautiful people, great beaches, really hospitable people and fantastic music. In terms of scenic beauty, the coast of Croatia is stunning, lots of little islands, rocky coast and some of the most crystal clear blue sea water you can imagine. In terms of culture Egypt and China were fascinating just because they were so different.
Good luck at the national championships!

Wow, you are quite the world traveler.

What is the training accomplishment you are most proud of?

What is the competition accomplishment you are most proud of?

What are your superfoods?

What is your nutrition like surrounding training?

What has let you travel so much? School/research? Rugby? Competitions? Personal fun?

Where are you going now? Haha...

Is there anywhere you haven't been that you want to go?

Favorite childhood toy and what made it your favorite?

Biggest goof up in the gym?

If you had to pick one exercise to do the rest of your life, what would it be?

Music - The roots; Alabama 3; Ian Brown; The Strokes; DJ Shadow, TV on the Radio, Rage against the machine. I listen to alot of music, this list could go on for hours if I was to include everything. I have pretty ecletic taste.

Best training accomplishment is my front squat. 183kg (400lbs) with full range of motion. My best competition acheivement is probably clean and jerking 139kg (305lbs) at about 88kg (193lbs) body weight.

My "superfoods" are oats, quinoa, broccoli and eggs! The staple of my diet.

Nutritional philosophy is just to eat clean and try to time meals well - ie. always have breakfast right after risigin, always eat 1.5 - 2 hours before training, always eat right after training, always have a good pre-bed snack etc.

I try to choose unprocessed, natural foods.

I recently told myself that I need to eat more vegetables, I had been getting slack.

All of the above!! Research and college has given me the opportunity to live and study in the USA. It has gotten me to Brazil, China and Austria for conferences.

Weightlifting has helped too. I have visited Luxembourg and Greece as a result and ma going to Malta next month.

Personal fun covers almost everywhere else!

Right now I am in Italy. I am over here with an Athletics squad I work with (sprinters). I do their strength training, we are over here for 10 days warm weather training (weather is miserable in Ireland at this time of year). I am doing the gym sessions and some video analysis.

Yes, lots of places. I am very keen to visit Thailand and other parts of south east asia and Australia. I dont know when I will get the chance to go to those places. But I am hoping to do a short road trip around spain (a week maybe) at the end of June.

Screwball Scramble. Awesome game. I just loved the ingenuinity of it and I liked how I could do it and lots of my friends couldnt.

Biggest goof... there is alot of them. i often load the bar wrong (2.5kg more on one side than the other) but worst was probably unloading one side of a bar in squat rack completely while weigh still on other side. Needless to say the bar whipped upwards on one side and actually hit the ceiling. It was lucky no one was hurt.

One exercise? Probably power clean and jerk.
