What’s non-negotiable for you when it comes to fitness and health?
A non negotiable for me is gymnastics. It is an iron rule to keep your gymnastic/calisthenic muscle performance. So 5 days without a handstand or calisthenic training is a no no.
What’s a typical breakfast for you?
At least two eggs in the morning and my meals are typically based on the classic food pyramid approach.

Do almost nothing. Just sit and stare into space. Like a resting muscle after a high intensity workout, our brain needs a period of time to relax and stop thinking.

Protein within 30 minutes.
Sum up your dietary approach in a sentence?
My dietary approach is a classic 3 meals a day.

What’s the biggest diet mistake or misconception?
“This boba tea is my lunch and dinner meals replacement,” said someone I knew. You need foods that contain macronutrients and micronutrients for your body system.

Try to sleep at 10.30pm and achieve 8 hours of sleep. It will get brighter tomorrow.
