In the case of SRK, he went for a shoulder surgery after Chennai Express, which followed a rehab training. However, he also met two accidents hurting his knee, while shooting Happy New Year, hence it took more time to recover and get those pack abs for him.
The Shah Rukh Khan Way
After working for six long months he was able to get those eight pack abs on his body. Despite having great energy, it took that time to get the body. Luckily, SRK is blessed with an athlete’s body, which is vital for these things. For SRK, Sawant was the man whom he always trusted hence he is there with him since Asoka days. He has been guiding SRK in everything right from the workouts to diets. Besides, SRK always loved trying out the newer methods and techniques introduced in workout and exercising. This has therefore created a good bond with his trainer, which helped him a lot to get the body despite being the age of 49.
It is really difficult to have that kind of body at this age unlike seen in the case of SRK. But thanks to his commitment and hard work he was finally able to do despite all the injuries and surgery he went through over his body since one year. With his passion, dedication, energy and consistency, he was able to set trends in this domain.
He is also known to have ample amount of self control hence you would never see him eating junk or fussy stuff. He always relies on healthy food and keeps himself into a light eater. He is never an overeater even during the parties or festivals. He is indeed a true sportsman, who played a number of sports including soccer and hockey during his school days.
The workout session
He is known to work out for around five days in a week for around one and half hours at the time when the world sleeps – 2 or 3 am. He is indeed a great nightrider. He tried various blends to see this body turning for him. It was a blend of strength and functional training along with trying out things like weight and suspension training. He even tried special vibrating dumbbells, while the other training options include the powerplay methods that kept his shoulder in a right shape and lets not forget to count his 10 minutes cardiovascular exercises too that made the difference.
