  • “High reps low weight. Cardio, diet, n u should see results. If not- TRY HARDER!”

  • “Days when u just can’t get yourself to workout, you are free not to. BUT GET URSELF TO THE GYM FIRST and decide THERE!!”
  • “Run / walk (flat n incline) 1min each alternating, totally for max 15mins is good enough! My target-700cals per w/o [workout] (cardio+ weights)”
  • “Don’t forget legs- large muscle- promotes testosterone which helps increase overall muscle mass. RUN/walk when u can for cardio!”

  • “Consistency is paramount! Keep changing your w/o everyday. Do something different, anything! Every time u get tired, do one more last set”

Bollywood Hungama reports on Hrithik’s Twitter advice: “Hrithik states that ‘Body doesn’t grow in the GYM, it grows while you rest! He also adds that one need not splurge on protein supplements, since they are great if they are used in the right amount. [His most basic mantra includes drinking] Water! He validates this advice stating that it is water which is probably the only alkaline food in our diet!” Hrithik’s personal trainer, Satyajit Chaurasia, confirmed the importance of “consistency” to Hrithik’s fitness regimen to the Hindustan Times. Chaurasia also revealed a detailed version of Hrithik’s very own diet and fitness plan:
