Douglas Soh, 26

Civil servant

Height: 1.70m

Weight: 70kg

Exercise regimen: My exercise routine is to do strength training at the gym thrice a week. In between those days, I do some light cardiorespiratory exercises that help me to recover from the gym sessions. I also play canoe polo during the weekends.

Diet: I adhere to a nutritious diet. I ensure that I get adequate protein intake but I am not too averse to carbohydrates or food that contain some fat. Proper hydration is also important in aiding training performance and it also prevents me from overeating.
