muscle mass. With The support of Paddy and Monster lab my aim is to excel in my rugby career to the highest level
and create an opportunity to compete in another strength competition".

Connor has lost over 4 stone training with Paddy and the Monster Lab team and is now on his way to being a Strong man competitor.

"I played rugby for 11 years as a prop at St Pats. The reason i train is I enjoy the challenge, pushing myself to my limits every training session. I studied BTEC in sports science as I enjoyed seeing the methods and theories of training and how they work. Training at Monster Lab has changed my life, i love training and it has helped me physically, mentally and socially. 

My goal is to keep progressing, getting stronger, fitter, and win a strong man competition.
