HOW THIS SIN­GA­PORE BUSI­NESS­MAN

FI­NALLY GOT THE BODY THAT HE WANTED!

Men's Health (Singapore) - - NEWS -

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.
