Now, how does he come up with an insanely fit and toned physique and appear physically strong in his action-packed TV series? According to the actor in one of his interviews, he’s already active during his younger years. “In my early 20s, I did a lot of weights. I was huge — closer to 90kg,” he explains. Aside from that, he is also known to be a great surfer. He shares, “Surfing is my great passion in Hawaii. I have a bunch of boards.”
When asked about any particular diet that he practices, he says he just simply eats foods with reasonable amount of carbs and protein. “For lunch I’d have a chicken, a loaf of bread, two litres of milk and a bag of chocolate biscuits,” says Alex. Now we all know how he got that chiseled physique. His active lifestyle is indeed a great factor on what he’s gaining now.
