Love a leg day Nothing earth shattering numbers wise but really enjoy training just as much as the day i started and leg day @fully_pumped is a little bit like that kid in a sweet shop feeling with more new additions to come. #stillloveit #training #bodybuilding #bnbf #dfac #naturallybuilt #muscleformperformancenutrition #fullypumpedgymnorwich #legday #darkastan at Fully Pumped Gym Norwich

Transformation Tuesday! Still more improvement to come by this was 19 years old to 25. Putting on size naturally doesn’t happen overnight or come easy!

Might just be a photo off of a camera phone, but this was the first time I got to see myself on stage. This was from the BNBF Northern qualifier last year.

While bodybuilding is a process that takes alot of time and there is no real ceiling to what you can achieve provided you can stay injury free, its undoubtable that if you find yourself achieving pro status in the UK, you have already 'made it' and can consider yourself among some of the best bodybuilders in the world. #noargument #progression #levels #levelup #tieredbodybuilding #structure #passionbeforeprofit #supportthesport #homegrown #bestofbritish #grandprix #bigprize #bnbf #dfac #muscleformperformancenutrition #muscleformnutrition #fullypumpedgymnorwich #fullypumpedgym #darkastan #surroundedbygreatness

These 3 pictures are all within a year, if you believe you can you will succeed πŸ’ͺπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ’― . Thinking about my physique for my show next year I want to build and bring a better body to the stage, including my back even though personally I think this was my best asset πŸ’ͺ🏼 .

A bit too heavy with this one but i just wanted to know if i could do it. Every other set will seem more attainable now that i've done it. Good to push yourself but in hindsight going this heavy isnt whats best for your training and the risk v reward isnt really worth it. #bnbf #dfac #fullypumpedgym #fullypumpedgymnorwich #muscleformperformancenutrition #muscleformnutrition #darkastan # at Fully Pumped Gym Norwich

Life is alot like a workout in alot of ways, so through persuing bodybuilding to the degree you need to to be successful at it i have learnt that its when times are hardest, when things are uncomfortable, when there is suffering, when circumstances are not in your favour, when every fibre in your body and thought in your mind tells you you cannot do it and give up,...it is THESE moments that define you, your life, your outcomes. When the going gets tough, the tough dig their fckin heels in and push back HARD! #bnbf #dfac #bodybuilding #legday #quads #muscleform #muscleformperformancenutrition #fullypumpedgym #fullypumpedgymnorwich #osteostasis #darkastan at Fully Pumped Gym Norwich

Well what a year 2017 has been! Many ups and downs but I can safely say it’s been a great year, tried to cram as much in to 10 photos as possible so here it goes - I started the year off with my best mates stag do in Prague - Followed by my first BNBF show where I won my class at the Northern qualifier - Next was the big day, my best mates wedding where I had the honour of being best man - Then came the BNBF British Finals where I placed in the top 4 of a very hard class - Last but not least ended the year off with a fantastic trip to Miami with some great people and of course @me26x - Excited to see what 2018 brings. Happy New Year to everyone when the time comes - #herecomethehashtags #bnbf #novice #northern #champion #british #finals #bodybuilding #naturalbodybuilding #thebodyacademy #darkas #darkastan #bodybuilding #naturalbodybuilding #stagdo #bestman #wedding #bestmate #kilt #prague #newfriends #miami #holiday #dfac #world #finals #heat #basketball #miamibeach #allthehastags #newyear #flexfriday #flashbackfriday at The Body Academy

There are countless variables involved in maximising your potential in training, diet and supplementation, then people spend years going over even the finest minutia of every aspect to be the best they can be, yet rarely take the time to be honest with themselves about the effort they are putting in, and if they are 'doing the hard stuff'. I have met some really dillegent, dedicated and knowledgable people that still fall way short of what they are capable of. Why?... Because they lack that ability to take themselves to dark places whether it be for ten seconds of a really unpleasant set, or the final push for that last bit of condition in a contest prep. EMBRACE THE HARD STUFF! It's what makes the difference! #bnbf #dfac #bodybuilding #trainingnotexercising #fullypumpedgym #fullypumpedgymnorwich #muscleform #osteostasis #muscleformperformancenutrition #darkastan #mentalfortitude #howbaddoyouwantit at Fully Pumped Gym Norwich

Couple shots from my show this past weekend. IDFA in Mississauga, Canada πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦. I took 4th place in Open Bodybuilding, not what I was hoping for but was very happy with the package me & my coach @tom.kiat brought to the stage. I had better conditioning than my last show, maintained muscle mass which is always the goal & repaired my metabolism. I was anxious to compete even though I needed more time to further enhance my physique, we decided to go ahead with it. I’m glad we made that decision, no regrets at all & further reinforces what my coach @tom.kiat & I set out to do. With that being said, we’re not done, it’s back to lab with my coach @tom.kiat the mad scientist! Thanks for everything coach @tom.kiat ! A big thank you goes out to my wonderful wife @duncan716 ! For putting up with all my πŸ’© , for always being there for me. I wouldn’t be πŸ’© if it weren’t for you 😘 #bodybuilding #classicphysique #aesthetic #shredded #ripped #bodybuilder #idfa2017 #dfac #wnbf #darkastan #notsodarkas #gymlife #preplife #contestprep at Meadowvale, Ontario

Motivation Monday! Sometimes it’s hard to see where you have come from, but finding an old photo of when I was 17 and practically starved myself for over a year after years of being bullied for being β€˜the fat kid’ puts into perspective just how much I have achieved for myself. Much more to come! #motivationmonday #skinnyfat #noarms #comealongway #thebestisyettocome #bnbf #thebodyacademy #darkastan #darkas #bodybuilding #naturalbodybuilding at The Body Academy

Still my favourite shot from this year! Seeing as it’s chest and biceps today.. - - Strength still increasing, worked up to 170kg for a single on the flat bench press. First time since my shoulder injury last year I have been over 160kg. I wonder if I’ll get back to the 4 plates.. #bnbf #thebodyacademy #teambodyacademy #chest #biceps #benchpress #bodybuilding #naturalbodybuilding #powerlifting #darkas #darkastan #british #finals #flashbackfriday at The Body Academy

#motivationmonday Final prejudging round with the top 3 at the DFAC Worlds. I judge multiple shows all over the globe and for me the muscularity round is the part that we all look forward to. It's the chance for athletes to really showcase the hard work and highlight the strengths of your physique, unlike the symmetry round which always feels like a bit of a warm up in comparison. Practice your posing though, these rounds can hurt!!! #muscularity #condition #justmakeshapes #bodybuilding #naturalbodybuilding #dfacmiamiworldfinals #dfac #bnbf #cnp #cnpprofessional #thebodyacademygym #darkastan #thechampishere #posebig

Probably my favourite snap of the whole 2017 season. It's not your typical bodybuilding shot, but what it represents to me is the culmination of months and years of hard graft and overcoming all the challenges that come along with the ride. That's bodybuilding in a nutshell!! Do it for you, and you'll feel the same satisfaction πŸ’ͺ #setgoals #aimhigh #workhard #stayhumble #naturalbodybuilding #bodybuilding #dfac #bnbf #dfacmiamiworldfinals #thebodyacademygym #darkastan #cnp #cnpprofessional #thatwastough #keepmovingforward

Yeah we did it. Last day here in Miami and already reflecting on what's been a great season. From what was virtually a disastrous start to my prep, I'm proud I dug deep, powered through and finished strong. 4 x British Pro Grand Prix champ and now 2 x Overall Pro World champ. Not too bad for a laddie fae Dundee πŸ˜‰ Thanks to everyone who has and continues to support me. Much love to you all!
