I don’t know who Vincent Ng was. Saw his book at MPH few weeks ago. The cover page showing his nice ripped body has caught my attention. Based on what I found from the Internet, Vincent Ng is a former Singapore athlete in Wushu. He later became an artiste with Mediacorp. Now, he is an author for this book.
Whatever reasons he wrote this book, I guess that it will probably sell in Singapore. I have to give credit to the excellent photography showing his torso.By spending 15 minutes flipping the pages, content wise, not bad.
Apart from an opportunity for Vincent to flash his assets, the book actually provides practical advice on how you can firm up your body in 10 weeks. That is the reason the title of the book is actually TEN: A Lean and Sculpted Body in Ten Weeks. To lose 5.5% body fat by increasing 3.3 kg muscle mass within 10 weeks – that was what he has achieved under strict monitoring and coaching.
The exercises, the advice and the experience, though good, is nothing new. The exerises can be found in almost other fitness books or from the Internet. However, one cannot deny the fact that not everyone can write a book and showing fantastic body shape like Vincent.
This former world wushu champion-turned-actor is at the forefront of a trend that is seeing more Asian celebrities trying to keep up with their female counterparts by showing well toned bodies – in the name of getting ahead or being metrosexual. With workout in gym, men are generally more confident in their physiques.
I guess the books will go into his female fan’s collection. And I guess, the gay will drool over his shirtless pictures too. As for a straight man like myself, his nice torso photo at the front page will be my motivation.
