For actor Vidyut Jamwal, doing martial arts and gymnastics is a way of life. My exercise regime I train every day for anywhere between six to eight hours. I have been practicing a variety of martial arts like kalarippayattu, jiu-jitsu, etc. from a very young age. Also, I practice gymnastics with my trainer and other friends. I’m not really a gym person so I hit the gym three to four times a week for strength training and to work on my legs, shoulders, etc. I believe that the body has the wisdom of its own and in order to fine-tune it, one must work out and indulge in adequate exercise.
My problem areas
I have never really had or had any problem areas as such since I have always been fit since a young age.
I feel my strength lies in my brain because I’m very focused and motivated when it comes to staying fit. The ability to go beyond determination and motivation lies in the brain. I don’t consider myself a fitness freak but I guess I am one. Besides, gymnastics and martial arts, I also practice parkour.
I am a vegetarian since the age of 14. Being vegetarian is much healthier and it keeps one mentally agile as well. I drink protein shakes every day but my main source of protein is tofu. I don’t really adhere to a strict diet as I believe that our food should contain a balance of all the basic tastes i.e. sweet, sour and salty. I eat four meals a day and avoid oily food and aerated drinks. As for my food weakness, it would have to be cheese. I love the taste of cheese!
