Men’s Health Cover Guy 2018: Meeting Finalist Sanele Mashego
Top five finalist for our 2018 Cover Guy competition, Sanele Mashego, has always lived an active life. In primary school he participated in athletics. At 16, he was doing push-ups in his room to work on his strength.
Watching the consistency of her son, his mother rewarded him with a gym contract – a gift that transformed his life. As an asthmatic, the young fitness trainer saw first- hand how training can improve your quality of life.
Variety Is The Spice Of Life
Sanele is a full-time bodybuilder. To sculpt his body, he keeps his workouts interesting. Each set has its own rules. His advice? “Alter- nate your intervals during sets. For instance, rest for 30 seconds for set one, and then rest for 20 seconds for set two.” To up the intensity of his workouts he keeps his rests short between sets.
Form Is Everything
If you’re trying to achieve certain fitness goals, Sanele suggests performing moves using the proper exercise techniques. “Use weights that your body can take, and that help you reach the repetitions suggested by your gym programme.”

Stretch For Energy
The first thing Sanele does in the morning? A 10- to 15-minute stretch. “You want to let blood flow easily through your muscles, relaxing and activating those sore areas every morning.” Stretches are most beneficial when he’s sore from the previous day’s workout, or when he’s had a long day at work.
Squats, deadlifts, and plank side twists.
