Hot Bods

Exercise regimen: I train twice a day from Monday to Thursday with a complete rest day on Friday. Cardio work is done in the form of interval or circuit training during lunch breaks, while evening sessions are for heavier strength sets. I spend my weekend mornings paddling with a dragon boat team and afternoons in the gym for conditioning work.

Diet: My meals consist of a mixture of carbohydrates, greens and proteins. Breakfast is overnight oats soaked in milk and paired with fruits and nuts while lunch is usually mixed-vegetable rice or chicken rice. After my evening training, I usually have a protein shake and head home for dinner. I'm not a fussy eater but I do steer clear of fast food and deep-fried food. Occasionally, I indulge in pizza and ice cream.

Exercise regimen: I work out at least four times a week. My exercise schedule consists of high-intensity interval training (HIIT), weight training, running and yoga. I have a gym membership so I usually join their group HIIT and bodypump classes. For cardio, I either do an 8km run or explosive interval runs of 400m. I rely on my yoga classes for deep stretching and loosening of my muscles.

Diet: I follow a relatively healthy diet. My breakfast on weekdays is overnight oats mixed with milk, various fruits, chia seeds and nuts. I avoid oily and fried food and go home for dinner on most days as it is a lot healthier compared to eating out. Having said that, I do indulge in french fries or ice cream once in a while.
