Anil Kapoor has been sharing regular workout posts on social media.
Actor Anil Kapoor has provided some insight into his workout routine during the coronavirus lockdown. The actor’s personal trainer has been staying with him during the lockdown.
Sharing a picture from a recent workout session, Anil wrote on Instagram, “It’s not all about being locked in the dungeon of my gym, hitting reps after reps day after day. We must take time to let the body rest.”
The actor continued, “When we hit weights we create stress on the body on the muscles from that forced stress the muscle rebuilds itself making it stronger. Rest days are important that’s why I take one whole day off. A day when I relax and enjoy the fruits of a disciplined week. On that day I do all the important things that help me unwind…”
“During this process my body and mind can unwind,” the actor added. “In this relaxed state I know I am being kind to my body and my body will be ready for the following 6 days of training . I take a more relaxed approach to my meals. A little more generous with portion size or may be a little treat thrown in. I was never into weightlifting nor did I take rest days so seriously….but this lockdown has definitely been a learning curve for me in many ways and this is one of them. For we cannot forget a training plan is long term and the body needs its reward. I let my body take it easy because I know from the next day I am gonna make it work like crazy till the next rest day comes round…it’s a perfect balance of faith…patience and perseverance…”

I made this post not to show off or talk myself up, but to pass on some simple advice on. When it comes to body building, nothing is beyond us. At different ages we can work differently to achieve great results. If you’re asking if you need to spend a lot of money on supplements to achieve this, the answer is no. I have not taken any kind of supplements in this process. My trainer Marc and I have been talking about doing this kind of rebuild of my body for as many years as we have been together, which is 6 years! Time was always a stumbling block, or filming requirements, endorsements, social obligations or family time. Every year we would say we – this year for sure. Now in these very difficult circumstances, time is something we all seem to have a great deal of, so why not use this time to do the things you always promised yourself you would do. Strengthen your body, build muscle, build immunity, build flexibility. Respect your body. We might never have this much time available to us ever again. 📸 @marcyogimead
