Always a very gifted athlete Darren began his
sporting career playing semi-professional football for Ilkeston
Town from the age of 16 to 20. At age 15 he started weight
training more seriously to try and improve his size and strength for
football and it was there that he fell in love with weight
Specifically back in 1996 he remembers seeing
the cover of Flex Magazine one day with Dorian Yates and Nasser
El Sonbaty on the cover and it was then that he made the decision
to pursue a career in bodybuilding and turn what started out as a
hobby, into a passion and his chosen sport.
Since then he has gone on to win the EFBB Leicester Heavyweight
Class, the UKBFF South Coast Heavyweight Class, the UKBFF
British Finals Heavyweight Class and the Belgium Hercules Show.
I really try to
keep my diet the same all year round, it just makes it easier when
dieting and I don't have to lose so much weight. Also I'm a firm
believer that if your diet is roughly the same off season as
it is when you are dieting, your body won't react badly when
you come to a competition. Those guys who eat loads off season
and then dramatically change their diet never really know how their
bodies are going to react.
really believe that you don't actually need that many calories in your
diet to bulk up. I'm currently about 18 stone and I only have
about 4,200 calories a day. I think this idea that you need
7,000 - 8,000 calories is more of a British thing since on
the European bodybuilding scene athletes aren't eating as much. I
find sticking to a 40:40:20 diet (Protein: Carbohydrates: Fat) and
getting about 400 grams of protein per day is enough to grow.
Also one of my favourite things about Myprotein is the range
of flavours. I find sometimes after doing cardio you don't
want a heavy, milk based protein since they sit heavy on the
stomach. Whereas the fruit flavoured proteins that Myprotein make
are brilliant since they're refreshing and just feels easier to
digest. Also because I have a protein shake at 2pm at night, I
find the Impact Whey Isolate protein is best for this, since
it's low in carbs and fat and just ensures my muscles have
everything they need to repair and regrow whilst I'm sleeping.
Impact Whey Isolate, Crunchy Peanut Butter, Exceed and Taurine.
I would say consistency and focus are the keys to success.
Just have a goal and a dream in mind and don't deviate from
that. It was like that for me, when I started in 2001
progress was very slow, but I just stuck with a plan that I knew would
work and eventually it paid off. Also listen to yourself
since no one knows your body better than you do! We all make
mistakes but take charge of that yourself and look to better
yourself. I had a great year in 2007 and won almost everything I
entered, then I ever so slightly got led astray listening to
other people (who were only trying to help.) Now I've
realised no-one knows my body better than me and so I'm
taking charge and doing everything myself. Everything from even making
my own drinks and that's what I like about Myprotein that you
can take individual ingredients like Taurine and Leucine and
mix them in the quantities you want.
