He has one of the most envious bodies in Bollywood. Ask Arjun Rampal what one needs to do to be as lean as he is, the actor matter-of-factly replies, "Work out!"
The 40-year-old actor has a physique that belies his actual age. It's a mix of pumping iron in the gym and eating right that has helped Arjun attain that chiselled look that he is known for.
The actor's health card says:
>> Try to eat healthy. It's the most important part. Everything begins with what you let inside your body. Metabolism makes all the difference.
>> Spend at least an hour in the gym. Thanks to the hectic lifestyles, it allows you to be disciplined. Be regular about your timing.
>> I personally don't go and lift heavy weights. Not because I can't but because I don't. I prefer light weights as I don't wish to exert too much. To me, fitness is not about having bulging muscles.
>> Don't do the same exercises again and again. It's always good to keep changing your routine and trying out new regimes. Plus, don't burn yourself out.
>> When you're not hitting the gym, involve yourself in other activities like cycling, swimming or walking. It's also good to play a sport for a change. The competition aspect also helps.
>> I do repetitions too and also perform a lot of cardio.
