1. Run but, amidst nature
Milind Soman reveals that running is the best exercise in every aspect. It benefits your overall health and, running amidst nature has an added bonus too. This one helps you feel fresh and uplifts your mood too. Last but not the least of course, this form of exercise needs no cost at all. You don't need to hire a trainer or even have someone to see if you are doing it right or not.
Our very own Ironman believes that we should replace our regular mode of transport with cycles. From office to home or from school or college to home, cycling is a way to ensure that you are both active and healthy at all times. This way, you need not spend extra time on fitness and workout.
Here's another aspect of his fitness, swimming routine. Milind Soman swears by the benefits of swimming. It is also an overall workout for your outer and inner body too. Because of the strain that it puts on your lungs, swimming helps your respiratory system to exercise too. It tones your body, reduces unwanted fat and even keeps your mood uplifted at all times.
4. Combining water with a balanced diet
Hydration, hydration and hydration!
Milind focuses on the need for drinking more and more water but not too much of it. Instead, a person should drink a necessary amount of water which keeps hydrated but does not leading to bloating. For his diet, he explains that fruits are very important and should only be eaten before sunset.
They should not be mixed with other foods as it hampers digestion. Also, our Ironman loves to eat khichdi, ragda pattice and all Indian meals. He recommends eating food with skin peel on and avoids all polished grains. He prefers vegetarian food over non-vegetarian food.
5. Run but, run barefoot
One should run but putting something on while running disconnect you from the ground, he believes. When you run barefoot, it helps you maintain posture well and enables you to manage yourself more gracefully. Milind explains that after you practice running barefoot, you improve focus and also your body control while running.
Inspiring isn't it!
Our very own Made in India Ironman's fitness regime is surely one of a kind and we couldn't be any less inspired with him.
