EXERCISE ROUTINE I go to the gym four times a week to work out for 1½ hours each time. On top of that, I do a home workout every day to maintain my muscles. I do 50 push-ups and 50 pull-ups every day.

DIET My diet consists of protein powder, half-boiled eggs, honey and a multi-vitamin to ensure I get sufficient protein and nutrients. I have nuts and chocolates for snacks, and I try to eat less fast food.
