  • Military presses
  • Farmer’s walks

Irfan varies his diet depending on his current objectives. He’ll eat healthily and comfortably in the off-season, giving himself the freedom to spoil in cheat meals several times a month and protein powder.

But, during the in-season, things get much more rigid. During this period, Irfan cuts out all processed foods, sugars, oily foods, and everything that is calorie-dense. This means he’ll only eat lean, low-calorie foods, including lots of green vegetables and salad.
