My friend and fitness cover model Rob Riches recently stayed at my house for a week and every second of his daily regime was planned to prepare his cover model body. Waking up at 5 a.m to do empty stomach cardio, 6 a.m cooking all his meals for the day, 7 a.m Showering with a special body scrub that makes his skin glow , 11a.m into the gym for a workout , 12:30 p.m shopping for his food to eat the next day , 2p.m practice posing , 4-7 p.m Social Media and Marketing himself and then its eat and go to bed. He does this everyday without the slightest slip up, and it's this dedicated Preparation in all areas that makes him a sought after fitness cover model.
