This is DADBOarD

A journey into fatherhood, one ab muscle at a time...

Welcome to DADBOarD, thanks for stopping by!

This is my blog, aimed at all you dads out there - whatever stage of parenting you're at - who, like the rest of us, probably struggle to balance normal life and looking/feeling good.

I’m here to share with you my journey from a soon-to-be dad to a fully-fledged father, all the while trying to keep fit and not get that so-feared DadBod!

I hope you enjoy reading about my experiences...

I hurt my back. Again. The last thing I want to be is a young dad with a bad back!
