Sharing his fitness mantra the actor said:
"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."
