How Arjun Rampal keeps fit!

How Arjun Rampal keeps fit!

Also known as the Greek God of the Hindi film industry, Arjun Rampal is one of those actors blessed with the right mix of good looks, a stunning body and suave personality. The trailer for his next movie Inkaar has all his female fans drooling. Over the age of 40, his ageless looks and body has many asking, ‘How does he do it?’
Focus on developing stamina.

Arjun was an athlete during his college days and even represented Tamil Nadu in the state level 400 metre run. A sports enthusiast, he can be spotted sweating it out, playing cricket, football and tennis. According to Arjun, fitness should be a necessity that will automatically push you to maintain yourself. He feels that it is not necessary to hit the gym to keep fit, sports such as tennis, swimming and running can be a good way to toughen up as well. His advice to all people looking to get fit would be to focus on stamina rather than being worried about how much weight you can lift. It is essential that you work out your entire body.

Eating right is the key
Blessed with a great metabolism, Arjun says he does not put on too much weight easily. To him eating right is the key to keeping fit. His diet is usually a simple mix of all the major food groups, but when a role requires him to look leaner, he cuts out the carbs. His breakfast typically consists of eight boiled egg whites, cereal followed by papaya. He makes sure that he has a banana before he starts his workouts as it keeps his energy up. His lunch is simple and is usually daal, roti and subzi. Dinner is light with just a bowl of soup and some salad. He keeps his metabolism up by eating every three hours and drinking black coffee with a little sugar.

Arjun says that it is extremely important for you to work out only after you have eaten something. Working out on an empty stomach is counter- productive to weight loss or building muscle. If you work out early in the morning, make sure you have a heavy and healthy breakfast before you hit the gym.

Add variety to your workouts
Arjun says he prefers to play some sort of sport, rather than hitting the gym to stay fit. A practitioner of Tabata (a high intensity training regime) his work outs vary from quick 30 minute bursts to longer 90 minute workouts. He believes that it is this variation that keeps him fit. Kareena Kapoor introduced him to the benefits of Yoga, and he was hooked. He now practices the Indian form of exercise regularly. His trainer Zarine Watson initiated him to core training and helped him increase his inner strength. Arjun confesses that going to the gym can be a bit boring for him, in order to make working out more interesting he mixes his routine up by running, swimming or practising Karate.

It isn’t just about the biceps
Arjun says that most men forget that the legs and buttock are pillars to core strength. Working them out is as essential as building up your biceps. According to the actor, symmetry in the body’s muscles is essential to get that perfect look. He says that your calves, biceps and neck should always be the same size in inches.

While not all of us are blessed with the good looks and panache of an actor, we can definitely strive to keep as fit. Following some of Arjun’s tips might get you that much closer to a fitter and healthier body.
