Milind Soman is a well-known name when it comes to the list of most fit people. The actor and supermodel have recently also achieved a huge milestone as he aced the eight-day barefoot run. He covered a distance of total 420 km, from Mumbai’s Shivaji Park to Gujarat’s Statue of Unity. Talking about the experience, Milind Soman talked to athlete Ayesha Billimoria in an Instagram live recently.
Milind said, "Unity was a great concept. I thought it would be nice to do it. I, however, didn’t train for it and was running for 30kms a week. During the run, because of low immunity and a mild form of bronchitis, I got 104 fever. But the recovery was so fast that I was able to bounce back 24 hours later to do 50 km a day. That’s because of the regularity of my lifestyle.”
Later in the live session, he also talked about the importance of being regular with fitness and how does he avoid laziness. The 55-year-old actor said, "Laziness is a natural instinct. You will not move unless absolutely required. So, you will have to fight that laziness. I do micro workouts — between 30 seconds to three minutes at a time. And I work out about 15-20 minutes a day. But in those minutes, I push myself a little every day I do 30 Surya Namaskar everyday, which takes me seven minutes. That takes to push up my mobility. I do 60 push ups in a minute. I might push myself to do 62, and I am happy. Make sure you are getting the correct form and doing it correctly".
He also shared that he has never tried his hands on any kind of protein supplements and any kind of lifestyle changes such as intermittent fasting. Lastly, he shared avoids refined sugar and instead stick to natural sources. Milind said, "I eat a lot of ghee, jaggery. Everything is sugar whether bananas, mangoes or jaggery as the body breaks it down to glycogen which is needed for its functioning. But the more whole, unrefined it is, I feel it is better for me." He also stated that she loves cashews and always adds them to his khichdi.
