Early Life of Kane
Kane was born in 1968 in Manila, Philippines. His father was an engineer with his own consulting business, while his mother was a pharmacist.
To offer their children an opportunity for a better life, the entire family relocated to Toronto, Canada, in 1973. For the sake of his family’s future, his parents gave up their employment.
When they did, Kane’s father took two “full-time blue-collar jobs” to support the entire family because his father’s degree wasn’t recognized in Canada, leaving his mother at home to care for the five kids.
Kane, who was raised in Canada, recalls his father beginning each morning with a calisthenics regimen that included pushups, sit-ups, and planks. “Nearly 40 years later, and he still starts his days the same manner,” Kane claims.
When Kane was 22 years old, his father gave his elder brother a barbell and dumbbell set. But Kane, who took to working out right away, was the one who benefitted the most from the weights, not his older brother.
Getting Motivated By Bodybuilding
As Kane’s enthusiasm for exercise increased, he began working out in the basement with his father’s heavy bag and barbell set.
Posters of his heroes, including Frank Zane, Serge Nubret, Scott Wilson, Steve Reeves, Samir Bannout, Bob Paris, Mohammad Makkaway, and, as Kane acknowledges, “one of my earliest crushes, Gladys Portugues,” quickly began to cover his wall.
Kane Sumabat was very interested in developing his mind, especially the creative side, in addition to his strong and healthy body. He had pleasure in using both written and visual materials.
Kane attended the University of Toronto to study English literature after he received his high school diploma in 1999. But it didn’t take long before he was presented with an offer to work as a training instructor at a sizable gym nearby.
Even though he liked his employment, he departed after a year because he had been accepted into a full-time illustration program that gave him the chance to pursue and shape his artistic goals.
Over the years, Kane.
Getting Fit Again
There was a period when Kane began to take his training for granted. His workouts began to grow sparser and less regular, and eventually, he quit altogether. He perceived his time in the gym as a diversion from his creative work.
He had a serious depression during this time while he wasn’t training, which had an impact on both his personal and professional lives. When he reached 30 at the end of 1998, he returned to the gym to find salvation.
His passion for training was quickly reignited, and he hasn’t stopped since. From that point on, I’ve made my best gains, as Kane puts it.
Gains I credit to persistence, commitment, and drive, but consistency is also crucial. In 2001, Kane not only restarted his workout routine but also his training business.
“My training objectives are still changing. I’ve also realized that for me, training is a goal in itself. I’ve never been the type to be driven by anxiety or rivalry; instead, I’m driven by passion.
Even while I value having better strength, health, and looks, they are all secondary. I go to the gym twice a day, six or seven days a week, at varied times.
Being a mid-senior athlete, Kane is an inspiration to millions of people worldwide who are seeking their ideal bodies.

Sunday – Conditioning
- Superset ladder
- “Perform 10 reps of chin-ups immediately followed by 1 rep of overhead squats. With no rest or as little rest as possible in between return to do 9 chin-ups and 2 reps of overhead squats.”
- “This continues until you perform 1 rep of chin-ups and 10 overhead squats. Record total time.”
Kane enjoys using both types of cardio because he thinks they each serve a different function. Although HIIT promotes overall conditioning, he will frequently work harder with it because it is harder on the joints.
The fundamental issue with low-intensity steady-state fat-burning exercise is that while it may aid in calorie burning, little will be accomplished in terms of conditioning. You won’t be able to outrun a zombie by cycling for 60 minutes in the fat-burning zone. And the Concept II rowing machine is my favorite cardio apparatus.
Kane Sumabat will employ carb cycling as one of his main strategies to achieve the exceptionally thin physique he likes to flaunt for the majority of the year. To replenish his muscles, he would alternate days of eating a lot of fat and a few carbohydrates.
He’ll keep a tight eye on his macros and overall caloric intake. In comparison to the total number of calories he will consume, the timing of his nutrient consumption is somewhat less significant.
He doesn’t like breakfast much, but he will have a tiny snack before his morning workouts, like toast and peanut butter.

When compared to other bodybuilders of the time, he was impressed by how well-developed their abs and core were.
What Kane Sumabat Can Teach Us
