In an article by PUSH X Lifestyle, 17-year-old Bailey was asked about his routine. “I have been working out since I was 10,” Bailey began, and stated that he would workout whenever he finds the time. His routine is particularly intense: “My workout routine would normally be full body depending on what muscles are aching that day then a half an hour cardio after the workout. It feels great, painful, challenging, and extremely satisfying.”
He also had a personal trainer when he lived in the Philippines, and tried to cut some weight in his diet, and included mostly meat, vegetables, coffee and green tea.
He has a message for those who wanna look like him, too: “Focus on your goal everyday. Imagine what you will look like once you’ve reached it. You will feel much better inside and out. Trust me, it won’t be easy but it will definitely be worth it.”
