The young 25-year-old who made his Bollywood debut with Student of The Year has turned 35 today as he finishes a decade in Bollywood. Varun Dhawan, one of the most entertaining actors of this generation is celebrating his birthday today. The young actor has worked in over fifteen movies and did justice to every single character he picked. The actor does Bollywood masala movies such as Coolie No. 1 as well as dark thriller movies such as Badlapur.
The actor has been sporting a chiseled, toned body with washboard abs ever since he made his debut with Student of the Year. Ever since he has made himself synonymous with someone who puts his fitness first. The actor is not only spotted outside the gym several times a week but he is also known to experiment with several workout forms.
The actor often takes to Instagram to share pictures of himself sporting his muscular body. He also often shares his workout regimes, and videos of himself working out. The actor draws inspiration from the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone. He once shared pictures of them in an Instagram post and had captioned it, “Arnold and Stallone. One at the age of 70 and the other at 69. Inspiring us all even now.”
The diet he follows
According to a leading fashion magazine, Varun Dhawan revealed that he follows intermittent fasting where he only eats for approximately 14 to 16 hours and fasts for the rest of the day. While intermittent fasting is an age-old technique, it has gained popularity in recent years. Studies show that it not only helps you reduce weight but can also make you live longer.
Talking about the diet he followed during the lockdown, he said that at one point he was guilty of binging on whatever he liked, but he soon put an end to it and picked a disciplined routine. In an interview, he revealed, “Just like my workout, I completely switched up my diet too. I was just binging and eating everything, I think we’re all guilty of doing this at some point during the lockdown. However, I eventually disciplined myself and picked up a workout too. I started my day with a vegetable smoothie and then some fish. I was actually living the life of a pescatarian then and I in fact still am. During the day, I indulge in some sweet potato, gluten-free bread, and soy milk. I also end the day with absolutely zero carbs.”
His workout regime
In an interview, the Student of the Year actor also revealed that he works out every day. He said, “I workout every day no matter how tired I am. I also try and get a good massage, a sports massage. Because, it’s very important for the mind to be healthy if you have to function. If your mind is messed up, it shows on your full body. Keep your mind cool, and let the heat show in your workout.”
What Varun Dhawan’s trainers say about him
Varun Dhawan also believes in the power of pilates. His pilate trainer Namrata Purohit spoke to an interviewer about Varun Dhawan. She said, “Pilates has made Varun more flexible, lean, and has improved his balance. He is also better able to cope with injuries and is being able to prevent them. Since he loves dancing, pilates has also helped his movements become more fluid and he’s gotten a lot stronger”
