I had the opportunity earlier this year to work with fitness model Ethan Maxwell Landry (a.k.a. Eh Moo La) a couple of times when he traveled to New York City from his home in Chicago. You can’t tell it from his photographs, but Ethan (a.k.a. Moo) is a rather private and shy person. Recently, New York photographer Mark Edwards scored an exclusive interview with Ethan. Here’s what we found out from that interview…
Moo is originally from the Asian country of Burma, now officially known as the Republic of the Union of Myanmar. He’s 25 years old and stands at 5’8″, weighs 140 lbs. with a 29″ waist.
As you can tell, Ethan is a little fanatical about his workout. He started his workout / fitness program only two years ago.
As for his exercise routine… “I work out at the gym about four to five days a week, one to two hours each. Once I’m at the gym, I try to hit almost every body part and take no more than one-minute breaks in between. That’s really gotten me shredded and lean. Plus I’m not there to chat, so anything longer than a two-minute break gets me bored and I don’t feel like I’m productive. On the days I don’t have energy, I’ll sometimes start my workout by running for 10 to 20 minutes and that warms up my body; then I’ll lift for another hour or more. Lately I’ve been trying to bulk up mass, so I’ve started focusing on one or two body parts. On those days I try to hit hard the one or two muscle groups, such as tries or chest, with the maximum weight almost from the beginning of the workout. I start and stay heavy instead of gradually working up the weight because if I do it for too long, the muscle tires out and I can’t get to that heavier weight.” he told Mark Edwards.
As with any good exercise regiment… diet is an important part. Ethan says about his diet… “I have pretty high metabolism, so I don’t really have to avoid fatty foods or foods with carbs. But I’m Asian and it’s in my nature to eat healthier, leaner foods. Usually, you’ll see me eating many small meals throughout the day. I love fresh fruits and vegetables. But after a long work at the gym, don’t be surprised to see me in line for Chipotle. I love those burritos and they seem to fill me up. I try to avoid processed or packaged foods, in part because I don’t like the taste. Fresh is always my preference.”
