CHEST OVERLOAD | May 2013 – Model/Writer  UltraFitLogo
Rob Riches talks you through his chest training routine and explains why it works for him and why it will for you! I start my typical chest training routine by warming up the chest with the incline bench. Doing this not only prepares me physically by stretching my muscles through the movements that I will be doing later with heavier weights, but also increases blood flow and nutrients to my chest muscles.

FIT&FIRM | April 2011 – Model/Writer  Fit&FirmMagazine
Wanting to lose weight, often for vanity reasons, is nothing new. It has simply been a focus of attention thanks largely to the popular media and the increasing pressure from the multi-billion dollar diet and weight loss industry telling us to lose fat and shape up to keep their business booming. Information is perhaps the single greatest tool when it comes to losing weight, and I’m not just speaking about a reduction in body weight, I mean body fat.

A BODYBUILDER IS BORN | January 2009 – Model  IronmanMagazineLogo
Ron Harris teaches his young protégé how to plan for more muscle. Eight pounds of pure muscle in the right places makes a big difference in a physique, junior,” I informed him. “I like to use the old analogy Mike Mentzer made famous. He used to tell you to imagine what that amount, in this case eight pounds, would look like if it was raw steak piled on a table in front of you. That’s when you get a better appreciation for just how much muscle it really represents.  ABodybuilderBorn
