LOOKING like superman minus the cape and bodysuit, Canning Vale body-builder Ang Vincenti has proved he is one of Australia's most muscular men.
The 41-year-old was crowned Mr Australia at the National Amateur Body-Builders’ Association/World Fitness Federation’s body-building championships in Tasmania on October 12.
The father-of-one said he was shocked to have come home with the top gong.
‘It feels unbelievable – it didn’t sink in for a while,’ he said.
‘Winning my category was great; to win the overall, I couldn’t believe it.
‘It feels fantastic.’
He competed in the Masters Class, for competitors over 35, weighing a maximum of 81kg and measuring 170cm-175cm tall.
Vincenti said competitors were judged on symmetry, leanness and muscularity.
To achieve this, the furniture restorer said he was on a strict diet and trained about three hours a day at Pure Fitness 24 in Canning Vale.
‘I do cardio twice a day for about 45 minutes to one hour and then I train with weights for about an hour,’ Vincenti said.
‘Diet-wise, it’s basically eating a strict diet day in day out. I’ve been going for about 15 weeks now with it so I eat lots of chicken, fish and egg whites.’
He did admit to having cravings for sweet foods and snuck in a cheat day, but most of the time he was on a diet.
For the past four months he has been training for Worlds, which is being held on November 2 in the Gold Coast.
Vincenti said he hoped to make it to his division’s top five.
‘Worlds will be pretty tough,’ he said.
‘My whole goal was to go and get up on a world stage so I can say I’ve competed on a world stage.’
