DO WHAT YOU LOVE
Sivuyile “Siv” Ngesi is an actor, comedian and MC. Currently he’s shooting a global travel show, so his schedule is so hectic that he doesn’t see much home and gym time. Yet he still makes it happen. “In my 30s I’ve realised that I have to be smarter with my workouts,” he says. “Before, I could workout for an hour, not eat any protein and still gain muscle. And then just bounce back and do it again the next day – not anymore.”
According to Ngesi, the most important part of his training now is not the workout but the recovery process. “I make sure that I’ve eaten before a workout, and make sure that I fill up with protein when I’m done.”
Because his schedule is so demanding, Ngesi believes it’s crucial to do a type of training or cardio activity that makes you happy, while giving great physical benefits. For him, that’s boxing.
