What kind of fitness routine do you usually follow?

I conscientiously do heavy weight muscle training for six days a week with an average session of two and half hours. But once a week, I often extend the session to four hours. I’m into all kind of fitness I follow a whole body workout regime. I’m doing a lot of martial arts, swimming, cycling, skate boarding, that keeps you entertained as well as charged up. I like to work out in open space, so I play a lot of sports like football, volleyball. While playing you enjoy yourself, but you also burn a lot of calories. Hour and half of any sport is equivalent to any workout in the gym. I also do 40-45 minutes of Muay Thai.


What does fitness mean to you and why is it important?

Fitness is to stay internally and externally healthy. I don’t want to be a body-builder and I don’t want unnecessary size, unless for a film.


A fitness tip for your fans.

You need to know your goal well and accordingly plan your fitness regime.

How do you supplement your diet with your workout?

I have been on a stringent diet regime high on proteins, with a considerably reduced intake of rice, carbs and sweets. I was taking a lot of protein shakes and amino pills, but now I have cut down a lot. I’m going the organic way now by eating a lot of healthy and organic food.
