Hot Bods: Alvin Lee, 21 Undergraduate

Alvin Lee, 21 Undergraduate

Height: 1.7m Weight: 72kg

Exercise regimen: Weight training in the gym is a staple for me. I prioritise lifting heavy weights for muscle growth and maintenance. Jogging and interval training are my main forms of cardio.

Diet: For breakfast, I have a protein shake, a bowl of oats and a multi-vitamin supplement, followed by sweet potatoes or a bowl of rice with chicken breast for lunch. I have a chicken breast or protein shake in between lunch and dinner as a snack, and dinner is a sutchi fillet with a chicken breast and a cup of broccoli to meet my daily fibre intake and prevent hunger at night.

Height: 1.65m Weight: 57kg

Exercise regimen: My exercises consist of squats, lunges, box jumps, good-mornings, step-ups, overhead presses, bench presses, push-ups and dips, combined with running 5km twice a week. One of my greatest achievements is going from 104kg to 57kg last year after giving birth. I love playing volleyball, badminton and tennis. I participated in these sports from my school days and have quite a lot of medals, certificates and trophies!

Diet: First thing in the morning, I drink warm water with one full lemon, and have five small meals spread out over the day. Small, healthy meals, rather than the standard three large meals, keep my energy up. I drink 12 to 15 glasses of water every day. I avoid liquor, junk food and sweet food. My favourite foods are chicken breast, grilled salmon with garlic brown rice and soups.
