John Abraham’s Workout

 John Abraham

John Abraham made his acting debut in 2003 with Jism, an erotic thriller starring Bipasha Basu. But it wasn't until Dhoom that he became a household name. His ironed long locks and chiseled torso became a model for every fitness fanatic.

John is one of the few celebrities who can pull off a bare-chested shot. His impressive eight-pack abs and massive biceps serve as an inspiration to many fitness fans. It takes months of hard effort and hours of sweating it out in the gym to accomplish this feat. That being stated, let's take a closer look at his workout routine.

Given his meaty physique, one may assume that the Batla House actor is on a diet that involves a lot of food consumption. Contrary to popular belief, he consumes small amounts of protein-rich foods to keep him going throughout the day. According to GQ India, the actor admitted to a leading daily in 2016 that he eats eight meals a day, and they are hardly big feasts.

John enjoys snacking and eats throughout the day, but he strictly avoids fatty foods. He always has dry fruits on hand. Unlike other Bollywood celebrities, he does not smoke, drink, or consume sugar.

John works out like a beast. His trainer, Vinod Channa, previously gave a sneak peak into John's workout regimen. According to The Free Press Journal, Channa stated, “I have been training John since the film Force. He has a body type called the Endo Meso, which would mean that he is a mixture of the Endomorph and Mesomorph types of bodies. For these kinds of body types, it is easy to gain fat and muscles, but tough to lose them easily. But for every ten kilos of fat, you add three kilos of muscle. Having said that, he is someone who always works hard on his body for various films. Since I have a certification in 16 types of training, we always use permutations and combinations of different things — from calisthenics to parkour, animal flow to even stick mobility — and work on a complete workout.”

Vinod Channa goes on to say, “There are times when he has shot for around 16 hours and he has still managed to hit the gym after that. That is the kind of dedication he has. He schedules his time so that he can either come late at night or early in the morning depending on his shootings and work commitments. When he is in Mumbai, he is at the gym six days a week. He does cardio exercises and spends an entire day working on his back and strengthening his core muscles. A day is allocated for shoulder muscles and biceps and he keeps increasing the intensity of these exercises depending on the nature of the physique he needs to build for his films.”

John Abraham is a cyclist who prefers to keep his training as natural as possible. In an interview with the Times of India, the Attack actor stated, “I am an outdoor person. I enjoy simple things like rock climbing, lifting sandbags, and flipping tyres. I paddle regularly. If I can’t go outdoors, I clock in my miles on the cycling machine at home. I cover 10 miles a day to burn around 300 to 400 calories. Average Indian men tend to ignore their legs. You’ll always see a great upper torso but weak legs. Cycling helps strengthen your entire body, including your quadriceps, hamstrings, abductors, and calves. It might seem difficult to begin cycling, but once you get started, it turns into an addiction. I also make use of various apps to keep track of my heart rate, calorie intake etc. Apart from cycling, I am also into running, brisk walking, and CrossFit.”

In addition, he enjoys football. He is frequently seen performing alongside Bollywood actors such as Ranbir Kapoor, Abhishek Bachchan, Arjun Kapoor, and Varun Dhawan. He has frequently used his Instagram account to demonstrate his abilities.
