Hot Bods

Exercise regimen: I do Thai boxing competitively, training up to three hours each day after work and six days a week if I have an upcoming fight. Off season, I still put in about four to five sessions a week, making sure to stay sharp and generally fit. I also do strength and conditioning once a week, comprising heavy lifting and plyometric exercises.

Diet: I try to eat as clean as possible, and have quite a balanced diet comprising whole grains, lean meat and lots of fruits and vegetables. I can afford to indulge occasionally without worry, due to the intensity of my training regimen.

Exercise regimen: I work out at least five days a week, training different muscle groups in each workout. I'll squeeze 11/2 hours of workout in between lessons at my school gym. I target my weaker muscle groups like legs twice a week and others like arms once a week. I go for more sets with lower reps and heavier weights.

Diet: I eat about five to six meals a day, with each meal focusing on protein. I usually pack chicken breast or fish fillet with eggs for the mains and consume a protein shake in between meals. I also take supplements from NutriFirst to aid in my dietary requirements. I drink only plain water but I snack on junk food occasionally in moderation.
