Hot Bods

Christophe Ang, 20

Undergraduate

Height: 1.70m Weight: 74kg

Exercise regimen: I train four to five times a week with my powerlifting coach, with a focus on strength training as I'm a competitive powerlifter. I do squats, bench presses, and dead lifts, lifting heavy and making sure my form is good. I used to swim competitively for 15 years.

Diet: I eat whatever fits my macro-nutrients (fats, proteins, and carbohydrates) and try to keep my body weight between 75kg and 77kg during the off season, between 71kg and 73kg during competitions. I don't go out of my way to avoid certain foods. As long as I don't go overboard, it's all good. My favourite food would have to be pasta, in particular, chicken bolognese with meatballs.

Exercise regimen: I run 5km to 15km at least three times a week, aiming for a faster timing and longer distance each time. I also do gym training at least once a week. My typical workout routine consists of a 15- minute interval training on the treadmill, three sets of bench press/tricep dips/lifting weights, and a 30-minute slow jog on the treadmill. I participate in half-marathons, cycle and train in muay Thai.

Diet: I eat whole grains (whole wheat bread, oats) for breakfast, salad for lunch and protein-packed foods such as salmon and chicken breast for dinner. My snacks are yoghurt and fruits, and once in a while, I would indulge in fries and pies. My favourite food is salmon and avocado.
