Q: I had a tremendous response to a you tube video I posted of you talking "Ten pack abs", surprisingly the overwhelming number of inquiries were about your nutrition & supplementation. Can you give my readers a detailed day of what your diet/nutrition is like. Being a fitness professional requires your body fat levels to be low year round for photo shoots and such, how do you manage to keep your body fat levels at a manageable level to be ready to shoot?Ben Noy: PlayBoy, Aussie Bum, Diet Coke campaign, D&G & Dolce Underwear campaign, Daily Star, 69 magazine, The sun, Muscle&Fitness Magazine, Flex Magazine, Musclemania & Men's Health Magazine just to name a few of many. Also I can't Mention names due to confidentiality but I have worked with some celebs as a Pro trainer at Reebok UK.
Ben Noy: My diet varies weekly, I don't tend to get much time annually to put on size as I don't have a off season as such due to the high demand in fitness shoots! So my aim, is to gain as much lean mass as possible whilst maintaining very low body fat! I manipulate my carbs and fats to feed my body and shock my system but I tend to eat the things I fancy but make sure I get all my nutrients
Q: What is your current weight training split like?
Ben Noy: Again, I tend to varie my training routines to keep my muscles guessing but generally it varies from high rep isolation to slow compound movements...due to keeping my nutrition in control I fuel my body more on the more active training days & heavy training days.
Q: Give ABFITT readers a few important tips leading into this new year who are looking to achieve their best body ever?
Ben Noy: Knowledge is the key...its a science after all! Keep your veg high for fiber and fuel your body the most (high carb) first thing in the morning, pre-workout and post workout!!! The sooner you realize it's all in your control the quicker the results will follow...learn your body and the rest will follow!!!
Q: Can you give us the names of people, company's and projects you have been involved in.

Ben Noy: Competitions I have won.....Britain champion, European and commonwealth champion and pro card winner, Abs Uk, Abs of the year '11, Abs of the world and a few more.

Q: Ben anything you would like to leave us with?
Ben Noy: Believe in yourself, you build your own future. Be positive and focus on one muscle group per work out (growth), don't spend hours @ the gym, don't train your jaw line by talking all the time as you need to keep your rests short (ripping out), stay hydrated for so many reasons and try and keep a diary of your food to learn what works for you...Rome wasn't built in a day, keep @ it peeps!!!! Cheers, Ben Noy
