San Miguel guard Chris Ross is on the road to a fit and healthier life amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

And his recent Instagram post, showing a six-week body transformation, is concrete proof of that.

“Success isn’t owned, it’s leased and rent is due everyday,” wrote Ross, citing American football player JJ Watt of NFL’s Arizona Cardinals.

Ross, 36, revealed that the photos he had taken were six weeks apart, ranging from February 10 to today, March 26.

The veteran San Miguel guard furthered that he has been working out with “no days off” and occasionally, four times a day.

“Testing my mental capacity and pushing my body to the limits. I haven’t taken one supplement but I have made some adjustments to my diet,” said Ross, adding that he has consumed 50 pieces of cookies the past week.

Call it a cheat day or whatever, but Ross deserves that much at the very least.

The 6-foot-2 playmaker added that he weighed at around 210 lbs, approximately 95 kg, during the 2020 PBA Philippine Cup bubble season, as seen in the first picture.

This kind of achievement made the San Miguel stalwart in glee, recalling the same feeling when he bagged the Best Player of the Conference in 2017.

“I actually told myself right after Christmas that when I got my body healthy I was gonna work as hard as I’ve ever worked,” said the eight-time PBA champion. “So here I am 6 weeks into my transformation. Can’t wait to see what can be accomplished!”

In the PBA bubble, Ross averaged 7.18 points, 5.00 rebounds, 3.82 assists and 2.27 steals as the Beermen ended their five-year reign in the All-Filipino conference sans key cogs in June Mar Fajardo and Terrence Romeo due to injuries.
