HOW THIS SINGAPORE BUSINESSMAN
FINALLY GOT THE BODY THAT HE WANTED!
BUSINESS MAN AND ENTREPRENEUR, CHARLES NG, CHANGED HIS BODY IN JUST 12 WEEKS BY ABANDONING HIS OLD FITNESS REGIME AND EMBRACING NEW EXERCISE AND DIET METHODS TAUGHT TO HIM BY ULTIMATE PERFORMANCE (UP), A LEADING EUROPEAN PERSONAL TRAINING BUSINESS WHO HAD RECENTLY OPENED A BRAND NEW GYM IN SINGAPORE. Charles dropped from a respectable but slightly soft 18% body fat to a super ripped and tight 7% in only 12 weeks and here’s how he did it.
In the gym – Charles trained 3-4 times / week with his UP trainer, Fariz Adam. Fariz put together a routine that was specifically designed for Charles’ aesthetic goals of improved v-taper, a six-pack, and an enhanced shape and six pack. The gym sessions were no more than an hour in duration and exclusively focused on resistance training, with Charles steering clear of traditional gym cardio machines like the treadmill and stepper. To really increase calorie burn Fariz had Charles blast out some sessions on UP’s 30 metre long sprint track using “modified strongman training”, an exercise modality that uses weighted sleds and loaded carries to build a functional and ripped physique. Diet is paramount to a successful transformation and Charles followed a strict regime of “carbohydrate cycling” whereby Fariz would manipulate his carbohydrate intake every few days based on how Charles was performing, feeling and looking. Protein intake was kept moderate to high at close to 2 grams per kg of bodyweight, and Fariz ensured that Charles never went hungry as that leaves the door to cheating and binging on junk food. Twice a week Charles was allowed to go out and socialize and eat any meal of his choice. This kept him sane and allowed him to comment on how surprisingly enjoyable the entire process was. UP recommended some nutritional supplements to Charles, but we have to stress that the key is healthy eating, not popping pills or powders. Charles stuck to the basics such as UP’s own brand of US manufactured fish oils, magnesium and digestive enzymes, plus the healthy treat of “Chocotrients”, a powdered greens and fruit blend that tastes just like chocolate powder and is delicious in water, milk and even yoghurt for a guilt free mousse like dessert! The end result for Charles is that he says “I’ve never looked or felt better in my life, not even 20 years ago”. We leave the final words in this story to Charles himself, a businessman who defies age with his youthful looks and body (he also owns The Skin Botanique, a plant-based skincare practice): “We live only once and we only have that little time to change and improve ourselves”
I WAS 39 YEARS OLD AND WORKED WITH PERSONAL TRAINERS IN THE PAST WITHOUT A LOT OF SUCCESS. I WASN’T CONVINCED THAT PERSONAL TRAINING COULD DO MUCH FOR ME BUT I WANTED TO GIVE IT ONE LAST SHOT! “EVERYTHING WAS DONE AT A VERY MICROSCOPIC LEVEL.
