“You can workout as a professional athlete. You can workout every single day, very intensely, twice a day, two hours per session till complete exhaustion but if you’re not eating correctly and having right nutrition and taking the right supplementation, to be honest you will not going to get the most of your workout. Your body can get deteriorate and worst, you will not recover as fast. Your workout will go to waste. Treat your body like a temple: have a right diet and have a right supplementation.” Striegl told the press.
“My normal day right now is a lot of training and sleeping in between training session and having a very clean diet and right supplementation, I wake up in the morning and take a bunch of supplements and vitamins.”

The press also asked Mark’s message for those who want to start a healthy lifestyle.
“Enjoy the process. It’s a process not a destination. You have to enjoy it. Embrace it. Just aim to workout every single day. Don’t burn yourself out. Do a little bit every single day. Embrace the lifestyle. Don’t let cheat meal turn into a cheat day. Just have a cheat meal here and there. Have fun with it,”
Aside from his various endorsements, he is also preparing for the URCC championship fight with a Korean fighter this coming August 25 at Manila Cove, Okada Manila.
