Exercise regimen: My weekly sessions focus on specific body parts. For the chest, I bench press up to 90kg. I also cable fly up to 70kg and do 200 push-ups with variations. I work the abs with leg raises, crunches, sit-ups and side planks. I run three to four times a week, averaging 70km, and do callisthenics and ninja training.

Diet: I am a big fan of bananas and eggs, consuming about five bananas and 14 eggs a day. Breakfast consists of seven eggs, biscuits, bread and coffee. I am more easy-going with lunch, but maintain a balanced mix of rice, proteins and vegetables. I avoid rice at night.
