So where is Nic now? Apart from winning the September Shred, he has also hit some incredible goals. “In the last couple of months, I’ve been able to start doing proper toes to bar, kipping pull-ups, double-under, snatches, overhead squats and handstand push-ups. I never thought I’d be able to do those things! Looking forward to smashing handstand walks and muscle-ups in the next 6-12 months.”
I bet you are wondering if Nic faces any challenges nowadays, well, in fact, he does still have pain points that he tackles. “CALLUSES!!! I’m learning how to be better at recovery so that I’m fresh for each class and not feeling too many residual aches from the day before. I also have long/disproportionate legs, which makes certain exercises difficult to do correctly. Working on my flexibility is helping and I plan to keep at it!”
You have probably got all through this to realize that we haven’t spoken about the September Shred, well fret not for I hold all the answers. After pushing through the hurdle, Nic won the 30-day challenge and changed for the better. So we had to see how he did it.
“I have always attended 5-6 classes a week at BBB, but I never fully committed to a stricter diet. Having the accountability of the Wodify Rise and BBB Sept Shred, it gave me a competitive mental incentive to stick with it and see how far I could take it in the 30-days.”
So would Nic do it again, would he recommend the shred to any inquisitive minds? “Do it!! And go hard from day 1. After a month of developing healthier habits, it feels weird to go back to how I was before. I’m bringing those habits into my every day now, without feeling like I’m missing out on anything – specifically now I’m walking to/from work and gym (equals to about 9k steps for me), never skipping out on training on Mondays, especially after a big weekend, and I am more motivated and prepared to stick to my diet during the weekdays (relaxing on the weekend though.) Not only that, but I’ve been hitting PB’s the entire month and I feel stronger and faster than ever.”
We can’t wait to see what Nic gets up to next and watch him smash through those Handstand walks.
