Bryan Teo, 21


Height: 1.72m Weight: 72kg

Exercise regimen: I train five times a week, two hours per session. I train my chest and back on Monday, shoulder and arms on Tuesday, legs on Wednesday, arms on Thursday, and back to chest and back on Friday. Weekends are free unless I have a competition. Then I would have cardio workouts twice a day.

Diet: My diet consists of foods that promote muscle growth like brown rice, chicken breast and eggs. Contrary to popular belief, I make it a point to lightly salt my food because salt helps to balance out the electrolytes in my body.

Exercise regimen: I do a six-day split each week for two hours per session. Throughout the week, I train all the different muscles in my body; from chest and biceps, to hamstring and quadriceps.

Diet: I try to restrict my carbohydrate intake when I am training for bodybuilding competitions. My only source of carbohydrates are oats and sweet potatoes. On top of that, my coach also recommends that I have only fish and beef as a source of protein in my diet.
