Ranbir Kapoor is undoubtedly a dedicated actor who never shies away from going to extreme lengths to fit the part that he is essaying on the silver screen, even if it means undergoing a massive physical transformation. As such, his personal fitness trainer Shivoham has shared pictures of Ranbir featuring his six-pack abs and muscular body that he has built for his upcoming film, Animal. Shivoham calls Ranbir disciplined, dedicated and hardworking, and revealed that the actor would come for training even at 4 am. And when busy shooting, he would steal some time to train to get in shape for his role.
Shivoham wrote, “What you see is truly an example of a disciplined lifestyle, dedication and a lot of hard work. It’s a team effort and results like this cannot be achieved by half-hearted involvement”.
Shivoham emphasised that having willpower is the most important when embarking upon a physical transformation journey. “The nutrition, the supplements, the training but, more than anything, the WILL to wake up and do what is necessary is the number one reason why you achieve your goals and this is what sets you apart from the rest. 4 am training sessions, 11:30 pm training sessions or even sometimes finding the time in between shoots, Ranbir has done it all. Balancing his personal life along with his professional life. All these things cannot be learned from reading books, these are values that are imbibed in you and conditioning that you pick up from your parents and the company you keep”.
“So proud of you brother. Cannot wait to show the world “THE ANIMAL” look next,” he concluded.
Speaking to indianexpress.com, advance personal trainer Utsav Agrawal says that Ranbir seems to be at around 10 per cent or less body fat in the photos posted by his trainer.
“Going down to 10 percent body fat can be challenging for many people, especially if they are starting at a higher body fat percentage. The difficulty of achieving this goal depends on several factors such as genetics, age, gender, lifestyle, and current body composition. For most people, getting down to 10 percent body fat requires a combination of diet, exercise, and discipline,” he explains.
How can one achieve this?
To achieve Ranbir’s fitness, you would have to eat a balanced and healthy diet, reduce your caloric intake, and increase physical activity to burn off excess body fat. It may also involve resistance training to build muscle mass and boost metabolism.
“Getting down to 10 per cent body fat can be quite challenging for most people, as it requires a combination of disciplined diet and consistent exercise. The amount of effort required can vary depending on a person’s starting point and their individual metabolism,” says Agarwal.
He also advises keeping in mind:
*Losing body fat is not the same as losing weight. Losing weight can include losing muscle mass, which can actually make it more difficult to reach a low body fat percentage. To maintain muscle mass while losing body fat, a combination of resistance training and cardiovascular exercise is recommended.
*If you are considering reducing your body fat percentage, it’s essential to consult a healthcare professional or a certified fitness trainer to help you create a safe and effective plan based on your individual needs and goals.
*It’s also important to remember that everyone’s body is different, and some people may find it easier or more difficult to reach 10% body fat depending on their genetics and lifestyle factors. It’s important to set realistic goals and work towards them at a healthy and sustainable pace.
Is it advisable?
It’s important to note that going down to 10 per cent body fat is not necessary or healthy for everyone. “Body fat percentages below 10 per cent are generally only seen in athletes, bodybuilders, and fitness models who have specific aesthetic or performance goals. For the average person, a healthy body fat percentage range is between 18-24% for men and 25-31% for women,” concludes Agarwal.
