After a gruesome 8 weeks – proud recruits of Chief Original Bootcamp finally ended their 8 weeks challenge with a blast! What much can you ask for – FOOD. After starving themselves (not really) and being on a strict diet – the flood gates are now open!
Check the picture out – the amount of food!!!
Can you spot the Nasi Lemak! According to Armin – the nasi lemak he tapau is the best in town! From a stall in Taman Tun – near 7-Eleven. Maybe in one of my cheat meal I’ll wallop those!
You can see the amount food – and Melvin’s face of course. All stuffed with food. Even the secret recipe cheesecake is left untouched (until food slut a.k.a. Tan Wee Liam saw it).
The laptops on the table are for the challengers to update their photo and measurements before the deadline tonight! We do have some strong challengers from Malaysia – we shall see!
After walloping all the food – most of the recruits just borak kosong while keep stuffing food to their tummy. Checkout the array of not-so-healthy food! Donuts, 7-up, coke, roti canai, muffins… name it – pretty everything is there. Anything that is not in the list is on the table! Amazing.
Part of the event is to do some measurements and photo shoot!
Fitness routine is one of the most important part of the a person’s daily life. Yes – there’s a lot of mixed thoughts and thinking around this, but fitness routine is a core importance in ensuring a healthy life.
A healthy body is a combination of 4 things (to my own opinion of course!):
Good exercise means that you would need a balanced schedule of workouts, be it running, cycling, gym or even bootcamp. For me – my typical schedule is as such:
Run or Cycle
Well – each and every day of my workout, I give myself a bonus workout. A bonus workout would be extra swim or extra 5-10km run. Depending on the extra time which I have!
For example, typically after a bootcamp session – I would go for a quick swim because I have a lot more time before I go to work. A bootcamp session finishes about 6.45am. By the time I get home, it’s about 7am. A quick 20 mins swim is great to relax my muscle.
Having such rigorous workout routine is somewhat not so good, therefore I will always ensure that my sleep is good. In the past, I’ve neglected sleep. 4 hours of sleep is good???? Yah right. Nowadays I’ll try to ensure that I sleep a minimum of 6 hours though a good 7 hours is the preferred choice. In fact 8 hours is idea!l
Another good thing to do – is to always make a check on your resting heart rate. An elevated heart rate in the morning, right after you wake up is a good gauge that your body needs rest. I’ve written about this couple of times – and I cannot emphasize is a lot further. If your body needs rest… better give it a rest. Otherwise you will end up with injuries and such!
Last note – losing weight is not just about workouts! It’s…
