“Tomorrow i start water loading , so pump up to 6 litres of water from Monday-Wednesday “
” So today I woke up at 10:45am went to work from 12-2 and then I went to my gym Galway City Gym where i do all my cardio and did 45 mins cardio. Skipping to treadmill, boxing bag and then bike, I went to town for an hour or so and got all my fight gear. I get all my sponsors done at Print on Galway.

” I was up at 10 am and did my Epson Salt Bath for 15 minutes. I then hit the treadmill with the sauna suit on for 10 minutes. finally I then sat in the sauna for 10 minutes to cut off the last Kilogram. It was managed perfectly then went and made my weigh-in. Then I re-hydrated a lot of coconut water. I had a boojum then I just spend time with my family and my girlfriend.
