I'm losing my 'dad bod' and six-pack is returning

I'm just back from two weeks at my base in Manchester and am glad to report there are signs of my body starting to remind me and the rest of the world that I'm an elite athlete.

Getting back to camp was great and I felt my fitness was at a good level - better than I had actually thought it would be. But I had got a bit soft because of the lockdown and there was a bit of 'dad bod' forming, but now I can see the six-pack beginning to return, which is a boost to the ego.

The lockdown has been tough on everyone and when you're used to going to the gym every day and working alongside people who are your mates, who are like-minded, it was hard and mentally at times the whole situation was tough, so there's no doubt that being able to train again in Manchester with my coach Jamie Moore and all the lads has been something of a release.
