Henry confirmed the fact in a separate interview.
He usually works in the gym for 4 days a week. However, it can change if he has a busy schedule. He trains each body part only once in a week. However, he works on his abs twice in a week and trains his calves every third day. For individual body parts, he alternates between heavy and not so heavy days in the gym. His each workout session usually has more than a dozen exercises. You can find his overall workout plan here.
When it comes to diet, he is conscious that it is the fuel that will keep his body going. So, he tries to eat protein-heavy meals. But he also believes that his success lies in how he handles his cheat meals. Vince makes sure that he indulges in his cravings in his single cheat meal instead of having it in small quantities almost every day. When he is having carbs, he makes sure that he eats as much as he can handle. He almost force-feeds himself.
