Alex Fong Shows Off Muscular Body In Underwear Ad
Since Nick Cheung (張家輝) shocked the world with his muscular transformation, Hong Kong has seen a new trend of male artists exercising tirelessly to achieve the same look. Singer/ actor Alex Fong Lik Sun (方力申) recently joined the ranks when he showed off his ripped body for the first time in an underwear ad.
Although he was once a competitive swimmer, Alex abides by a more relaxed work out schedule since he left the team. Spending the past decade and a half focused on his singing and acting careers, the 34-year-old did not see a reason to train hard until he received the seven-figure advertisement offer.
He quickly sought help from bodybuilder and personal trainer Orlando To (杜德智), elder brother of singer Alex To (杜德偉). The two set up a rigorous workout plan that includes daily cardio and strength conditioning, as well as a strict diet comprised of vegetables and lean proteins. After four months of hard work, Alex successfully lost 30 pounds and gained a very sculpted physique.
To ensure the perfect look on camera, Alex also turned to a near-starvation diet shortly before the photo shoot. “I drank only water when I went with my family to yum cha. My abs became more visible then, though at the end my face became sunken and hollow. For awhile I did not eat, and I became just a pile of bones. When the ad came out I thought I was too skinny.”
The restrictive diet also caused Alex to suffer from terrible mood swings. Fortunately, his sacrifices were not in vain. He is happy with the results and is satisfied with his new ad, saying that he welcomes other opportunities to show off his body on screen. His girlfriend Stephy Tang (鄧麗欣) also approves of his new look, saying that his build is just right and that his transformation has motivated her to work on her own figure.
Now that the job is over, Alex can finally relax and has already gained back sixteen pounds in just eight days. Gaining confidence from this experience, he promised to maintain a regular exercise routine after enjoying a short break and hopes to inspire others to do the same.
