Undergraduate

Height: 1.68m

Weight: 68kg

Exercise regimen: I go to the gym at least four times a week, each time concentrating on a muscle group.

I would also do cardio such as running or speed-training twice a week.

Diet: I don't have a very strict diet but I always try to go for the healthier option.

Breakfast is two pieces of wholemeal bread with peanut butter and a bowl of fruit and nut crunch cereals.

I do, however, try to taper my carbs intake to the earlier part of the day.
