Exercise regimen: I attend pro wrestling training two to three times a week, focusing on individual-based drills like rolls and bumps (also known as break-falls) and the fluidity of choreographed wrestling sequences. I also do weight training five times a week and have at least one day dedicated to cardio training.

Diet: I always eat the standard three meals a day and sometimes have light refreshments in between. I have five whole eggs for breakfast, followed by a more protein-rich lunch and dinner, with either chicken or fish. I favour pasta instead of rice as the carbohydrates it contains are more complex. Typically I avoid foods that are oily or sugary during the weekdays, and only allow myself to enjoy them during the weekends when I'm taking a break from all the training.

Exercise regimen: I work out at the gym three to four times a week, spending one to two hours per session mostly doing weightlifting. Some exercises I do for my upper body include shoulder presses, lateral raises, lat pull-downs and barbell curls. As for my legs, I do hamstring curls and stiff-legged dead lifts.

Diet: I aim to have a minimum of three meals a day, but this can go up to five if my day starts early. Breakfast for me is usually a shake, which consists of protein powder and quick oats. As for lunch and dinner, I make it a point to have fish or chicken. I do not have a sweet tooth by nature and also try to avoid fatty foods like pork.
