Tiger Shroff approved workouts & fitness regime to stay fit –
1. Lift weights
Sometimes, the answer to how to get jacked like Tiger Shroff lies in plain old weight lifting. Get your dumbbells in place and lift some heavy sets for multiple reps. If you want to build muscle, ensure to pick a weight in which you reach muscle failure between 8-12 reps. But if you’re looking for maintain muscle endurance, go for a weight that allows you to do more than 15 reps.
2. Do the chin-up bar workout
If you’re a beginner performing the standard chin-up bar workout, grab the bar with shoulder-width grip and keep your palms facing you. Pull yourself up until your chin is in level with the bar and then gradually lower yourself until your arms are fully extended above your head. This exercise is helpful in engaging your back, lats, biceps, core and more.
3. Shake a leg to some filmy tunes
You know that in order to lose weight, you need to get your heart beat racing with some high intensity moves. But if you feel like taking a break from your HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), indulge in an hour-long sesh of dancing. This workout will help you burn maximum calories for weight loss.
4. Indulge in some solid MMA
MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) is a full contact combat sport that involves striking, grappling, standing and performing moves on the ground using techniques from various combat sports and traditional martial arts. A regular class of one hour includes calisthenics, strength training and cardiovascular workouts – all of which will help you burn at least 500 calories at a time.
5. Perform a few somersaults
A somersault is an acrobatic movement in which a person turns completely head over heels in a 360 degree motion. There is no one way to perform a somersault – you can perform it forward, backward or even sideways and can execute the exercise in the air or on the ground. Somersaults help your body become extremely flexible and gain balance required for performing other exercises.
6. Brush up on your boxing skills
The key to losing weight is to indulge in any physical activity that makes you sweat. So, even if you’re bored of your monotonous gym routine, you could switch up your workouts and play a sport such as boxing which could effectively help burn fat from your body. It also has other health benefits such as strengthening your core muscles and shaping your arms as well as increasing overall upper body strength.
7. And also kickboxing while you’re at it
Kickboxing is a moderate to high-intensity workout which is great for helping you burn calories and getting in shape in no time. It is yet another form of intense cardiovascular workout and can help build muscle as well as tone it in addition to weight loss.
8. Don’t forget your cardio routine
Hitting the treadmill for a mere 30 minutes could help you burn maximum calories. You need to burn about 3500 calories to lose about half a kilo of weight and while a single cardio sesh (on the treadmill) won’t help you achieve that, if you are at it on a regular basis, it will boost your metabolism rate and help you lose weight faster.
9. Learn pro-level gymnastic moves
According to studies, gymnastics is considered to be a moderate fat-burning exercise routine. But if performed regularly and consistently, it promotes steady weight loss. Coupled with a healthy diet and persistent training, different gymnastic moves could help you achieve your weight loss goal faster.
10. Focus on working your lats
One of the main exercises to work your back muscles and help you get bulked up, the lat pulldown is a compound exercise that simultaneously works several joints and muscles. While the latissimus dorsi is the primary muscle that is worked – the largest muscle on your back – other muscles such as your forearm ones and biceps are also worked with this exercise. Additionally, several muscles of the rotator cuff also assist as you pull the bar down during this movement.
