I am a self-taught programmer originating from the Isle of Wight. I have approximately 3 years commercial experience in developing LOB applications for a wide range of customers (local companies to FTSE 100). During this time, I have honed my development skills across a wide range of platforms and frameworks including C#, VB.net, T-SQL, Web Services and Android programming.

I am currently training towards my MCSA SQL Server 2012 qualification alongside my degree in Computing from Bournemouth University (Graduating 2013). During my time at Bournemouth University, I have built an extensive knowledge in core networking protocols and architecture including TCP, IP (v4 & v6), DNS, ARP, HTTP, EMAIL (SMTP, POP3 and IMAP), WiMAX (802.16) and WiFi (802.11).

comment Inflated abs when my abs are relaxed?
I found that milk inflates my stomach also. Beer is not going to help either.

comment Lower back pain when stretching hamstrings
Disagree, pain is your bodies way of telling you something is wrong , thus it shouldn't be ignored. I would say its unusual to feel a hamstring stretch in the lower back before the main body of the hamstring.

comment Started weight training, but cannot see progress
10-15 reps in a set is more for endurance/definition so you wont gain the weight you are expecting. Try upping the weight a bit and dropping the reps to 6-8.

comment Exercises to improve speed and running ability
+1 with recommendation of NOT doing weights. In my opinion, at the age of 8 even body weights are a bad idea, the frame is too undeveloped, more so in females. Running up hill. Speed ladders are good as well.

comment Should I stretch before exercising?
It is worth mentioning that dynamic stretching for any activity is good as it prepares the muscles for what you are about to endure as you have stated above. However, it has been proven that static stretching actually reduces the maximal power output for the session by up to 30% (obviously the amount will affect what you are doing and what build you are etc)
