  1. Before I begin, let me make a couple of things very clear. 1) This is not my very first transformation. My first transformation was back in 2016. You can read about it here. 2) I have been training for nearly 2.5 years now and have an extensive athletics background. 3) The story documented here talks about me getting into photo shoot condition for which, the prep started early August last year. (This was preceded by a 6-8 months of hard core bulk.) 2018 was a big year for me. Not only did I complete 5 years at MXP but also got married to the woman I love. Both my personal as well as professional life moved into new realms of reality. For some things, I was ready. For some, I wasn't. More responsibilities at work came down like mountain, which of course, further narrowed the time I had for myself. Towards the end on 2017, I had made a resolution to put on more muscle on my frame and I knew that this is going to be a tedious task. And so it proved to be. I had too much on my plate to finish and wasn't able to get my diet and training in line and I also lacked accountability. I needed a coach and that's when I got in touch with Akash Vaghela at RNT Fitness. This is what happened after that. The Tri-Phasic Approach Phase 1 – Initial Cut Just like I mentioned above, my goal was muscle building, naturally. At the very start, I had put on a little fat. So to counter that, my first phase was to lean out. I still had muscle on my frame but not as much as I wanted. This was my initial cut and its objective was to prepare me for putting on more muscle later into the year. Always remember, lean out before putting on muscle. When you are fat, your body is well primed to getting fatter. Hence, this cut. Phase 2 – Bulking After losing over 5 kilos on the initial cut, we decided to start a long bulk. This had me eating up to 3500 calories a day and training the hardest that I ever had. My eating plans were set in stone and I followed that to the T. I am good at dieting and at the same time, work a 12-hour desk job. So a set meal plan saved a lot of time. I cooked, packed and ate. No thinking about what to eat. In The Middle Of The Bulk, Came My Wedding Just when I was eating huge amounts of food, I decided to get fat. This meant socializing and endless parties. Unsurprisingly, all the damage I had expected happened. I was already in a surplus and all the wedding food added further more to my daily caloric cap. Though I didn't track but I was easily eating nearly 5K calories during the month of June-July. I drove myself into the dirty bulking category but I had no choice. What I did here was I trained heavier than usual and made sure I was putting the surplus calories to worthwhile use. This Is How I Looked At The End Of The Bulk (Fat) Phase 3- The Final Cut In the early weeks of August, the wedding madness got over. The scale weighed me in at 80 kilos. This was the heaviest I had ever been and of course, I had more fat than muscle. This was about it, and my coach and I decided to start the final cut, which would eventually lead to a photo shoot. I geared up and got into it. This is how I ended up on the shoot day. (In January) I ended my cut at nearly 63 kilos at about 10 percent body fat .In all, a loss of about 17 kilos. What I Ate My diet plan was set which means that I ate the same things every day. Now please, you don't have to do this too. It was doable for me so I did it. These were the food items. 1) Rice 2) Potatoes 3) Ghee/Olive Oil 4) Oats 5) Milk 6) Chicken 7) Wheat The above things are all what my meals comprised of right from the bulk to the cut. Only the quantities were changed according to the goal. (Please understand that no food in isolation makes you fat. It's the amount of calories you eat.) Training This was a complete game changer for me. Before training with Akash I was hitting the gym almost 5-6 times a week. This meant no time dedicated to recovery. He flipped it all up and had me lifting only 4 days a week. This made a HUGE difference in my strength and recovery levels being a natural. 1) Monday – Chest, back shoulders 2) Tuesday – Off 3) Wednesday – Legs and arms 4) Thursday – Off 5) Friday – Chest, back shoulders 6) Saturday – Legs and arms 7) Sunday – off I didn't do freaking 5-6 exercises per muscle group. Instead, I picked up the top 2-3 exercises for every muscle group that I was perfect at doing and a huge margin to overload. Working to failure also went out of the window and sets were limited to 3 per exercise. The focus here was on perfect form and progressive overload. I also got used to reverse pyramiding the sets. Working with Akash as my coach to drive this transformation, it added to my knowledge and capabilities of my body to push to new levels. For an in-depth look at my eating habits and training, you can follow me on Instagram.
  2. Ever since my childhood, I was fascinated towards sports and cricket was my forte. The basic fitness required for playing demanded everyday drills. And to say the least, I was a champ at doing these drills. I still remember doing the maximum number of push-ups and running the most laps of the cricket ground. Soon into the first year of my grads, I was hooked onto building a physique. This is where my struggle started. All the regular push-ups that I did back in school did make me a bit strong but not as strong as I wanted to be. I decided to quit playing all sports and took up a gym membership. And just like any rookie, I started weight training twice a day. I slogged for hours on end six times a week. As far as nutrition was concerned, it was simply crap. I knew nothing about eating and protein intake. I ate what most gym bros ate- bananas before workout and eggs post-workout. Probably the stupidest thing I have ever done. The nutrition was just not there. Unsurprisingly, a few months into training, I still looked like shit. Pretty soon, somebody convinced me to believe that weight training before the age of 20 hinders height growth. I got so scared that I gave up weight training. Soon I was found myself drinking and smoking and soon, this became an addiction. Somewhere inside, I still had a dream of building a good looking physique. I joined a gym again and then again, as random trainers led me into doing stupid stuff. Yet again, there were no results and this time it tested my patience. Almost Got Into Steroids Tired of looking skinny fat, I looked at using steroids. A guy at the gym, of course, a regular user, advised me to do it. I gave it a thought but luckily due to being short on funds, I pulled back. I was almost convinced to invest in it but luckily I was short on funds, and later on, I simply quit the gym. My Job Made It Worse Soon after my MCA, I got into an IT job. As you would guess, it demanded me to sit for hours on end. Years passed by like this and my physique became worse. For one final time, I bucked up and looked through the internet and came across GetSetGo Fitness and trained under the guidance of Nagarjuna. Initially, I found it tough to cook all my meals and hitting the gym in the morning, since I came from being completely sedentary. But Nagarjuna guided me in preparing all my meals and answered all my questions. Hard Work Pays Off With the right guidance on nutrition and training, today I have a physique that I always wanted to have. Right now, I am training right and eating just as required. I have further set goals for the future as well.
  3. If there's one superhero that embodies the modern day quintessential superhero, it has to be Deadpool. A childish sense of humour, cleverness and no fear of anyone, Deadpool is easily among the most beloved superheroes, although he likes to call himself a mercenary. Ryan Reynolds has been the perfect person to play the part as he embodies the quirky characteristics of Deadpool. The perfect portrayal of the role aside, what's equally impressive is the physique that Ryan has built for the part. A lean, muscular and an athletic physique! This is something every guy wishes to achieve. A physique that does not make them look like mass monsters, and at the same time, have girls drooling over them once they take the shirt off. Here's what you must do to try and build a lean muscular physique like Deadpool: 1. Drop Your Body Fat © YouTube One major mistake that most guys do and even desi gym trainers wrongly preach is, starting to work on bulking no matter what your body composition is. Some idiots even go to the extent of saying that bulk first, as it is easier to cut later. No, it is not. A Couple Of Things Here: a. At a higher body fat, you will gain more fat: The sweet spot to work on a lean bulk is between 8 to 15% body fat. If you are above this, there is a good chance, you will gain more body fat. b. Fat cells do not die off: As you become fatter the number of fat cells in your body will increase. More fat cells mean it is comparatively easier for you to gain body fat or weight in future. So, always do a cut first until you are around 8-10%. If you end up looking skinny, that is okay. It is temporary. 2. Start Eating In A Small Caloric Surplus Once you are at lower body fat, start eating more calories than your maintenance calories to increase your weight. And yes, you have to do this very conservatively. It is not a contest of getting as fat as possible in the shortest amount of time. Aim to gain no more than 1 to 1.5 kilo per month. Which means a surplus of around 200 kcals per day! Ensure you are consuming at least 1.8 grams of protein per kilo of body weight. 3. Do More Of Compound Movements Lift multi-joint movements so that you can get stronger and pack more muscle. Do not waste all your time in the gym doing 100 sets of bicep curls. The more compound movements you pick, the more muscles you work on, increasing the opportunity to grow muscle. And do not do the conventional one body part a day training. Research shows that even when doing the same number of weekly sets, those who trained one muscle 2x per week grew more muscle. Do not be a knob. © Imgur 4. Do This Ab Circuit 3x A Week The one thing that stands out in Ryan's physique in 'Deadpool' is his abs. As abs are a smaller muscle group, they recover faster meaning you can train them more frequently. The primary function of your abs is spinal flexion. The two basic movements which do it is ab crunches and leg raises. Do 3-4 supersets of 12-15 reps of these exercises every alternate day to build muscle and have your abs popping.

  4. My fitness journey started in April 2013. I remember the first and foremost challenge was convincing my mom. You know how Indian parents are - “You are too young to join a gym. Turn 18 first.” I literally had to beg for it. But this endeavor only lasted about 5 months, as I had to quit the gym for 'board exams'. I was an active kid, who loved playing football and basketball. However, I was chubby and in pursuit of excelling the exams, my health took a toll. I gained 14 Kg during the boards and my eating habits went from not so healthy to terrible. Physics, Chemistry and 5 McDonald burgers became my constant companion. As soon as the board exams ended, I re-joined a gym and embraced the grind. After working out for several months, I could not see much change in my physique. The trainers would simply tell me one thing- “dabba nahi lega toh body nahi banegi”. I tried to find a good trainer in many gyms but found no help. After 2 years I finally decided to buy a supplement stack from my trainer. One tub of whey protein, a box of BCAA & fat burners! To your surprise, nothing magical happened. I was frustrated but this was also a blessing in disguise. I began educating myself about training and nutrition from the internet. I realized my biggest mistakes were- training every muscle only once per week. P.S- As a natural, you should train them 2-3 times week. Next, I was unnecessarily trying to gulp boiled chicken, potatoes and daal, whereas all my body and yours as well, is concerned with nutrition, not how the food is cooked. Once I began tracking my macronutrients, my physique began changing drastically. I followed Jim Stoppani's training plan and got leaner. But I was not satisfied with mere aesthetics; I wanted to get strong, really strong. For this Yash Sharma was a very useful resource. And once I learned about progressive overload, I was able to take my strength and physique to a whole new level. I have been natural throughout so far. I have taken plenty of different supplements like L carnitine, Creatine, Whey Protein, pre-workout, and fat burners, but have never taken anabolic steroids. I believe in prioritizing the health inside more than the looks outside. It has been over 6 years since I began this journey of becoming the best version of myself. And believe me, it was not linear. I was misguided, got injured and had multiple plateaus, but every time I felt like quitting I would think “Just one more day”. And now when I look back, it seems I have made some progress. I currently train 7 days a week with a combination of bodybuilding, powerlifting, and calisthenic workouts. I am lean, strong and agile. My name is Sidhant Rai Sikand, and this is my story!
  5. Right from the start, I had no real drive to get a beach body other than the fact that it would have been nice to own one. I had been training with a personal trainer 5 to 6 days a week for about a year before this, but to be completely honest, although I felt stronger, I still looked very similar to when I started. I was still stuck in the 'skinny fat' region. For sure, my diet was not on point. I did feel a little disappointed and was massively sceptical about hiring a new coach. Then RNT and Akash came into picture and wanted to give RNT a run for their money, and I thought 'we'll see how it goes'. This is how I started. I started with zeal and within just the first month, I started seeing a change in my body composition. It was insane how quick the changes were to appear as I dropped body fat and increased muscle simultaneously – something that I had previously heard and believed was impossible. Akash had literally dialled in my nutrition and it showed very clearly. The weekly check-ins kept me accountable and made sure that I didn't deviate. Especially when I would try sneak in little bits of chocolate. I booked for a photo shoot which served as a constant motivation. There were times when I did feel that I need to loosen up but the thought of looking great on the shoot day kept me going. I held on very well through the weekly changes in calories and the peak week. The Results Two photo shoots later, I am now sporting a physique I had only previously only dreamt of. I thought to myself, 'I'm done now – I don't need RNT anymore'. However, the period after the initial transformation has actually been the most useful RNT have been. Having helped me to achieve the body I had only previously dreamed of, the trick was how to keep it going forwards without having to weigh out all my food, and live life. I've now realised that transforming your body will always generate results that transcend far beyond the physical. It positively impacts all areas of your life. Your mental health, your relationships, and even your wealth and finances will all benefit from the habits, discipline and structure a physical transformation embodies.

  6. My father being a semi-professional football player, fitness came pretty naturally to me. Right from my early teens, my father had me on my feet and taught me exercising. Every morning I used to accompany him and his fellow players to the practice sessions. It was here where I learned the basics of stretching, running and basic exercising. Soon after, I was sent off to a boarding school where sports were kept at the helm of all things. Of course, what my father taught me helped me a great deal to shine bright at school athletics. First Encounter With The Weights It was during my first year at college, that I got a chance to work out in proper gym. It was 2007, the very first year of my lifting journey. It all started there. As it happens, even I had no idea about nutrition and training. Nope, none! I used to follow suit that was set by the desi trainers at the gym. Doing bro splits six times a week and eating whatever came in sight became the norm for me. Some desi-trainers even sold me mass gainers, having me dream of a poster boy physique. Since I was very, or let's say skinny, I bought into the fake dream. Even when I was short on pocket money, I hustled my way through buying mass gainers. Soon after, in the following months, I started looking skinny fat. I did get a bit bigger but most of it was nothing but fat. My dream seemed fragile at this moment. I had no money to afford a personal trainer and thought that it was VERY expensive to afford one. I was left heartbroken. The Time When I Ate Boiled Chicken Like An Idiot! A few years ahead, I met this guy at the gym. He seemed sensible. I asked for his nutrition advice and he asked me to eat half a kilo boiled chicken and 10 egg whites to achieve a ripped body. Since they looked good, I started following their dumb advice. The diet was SO bad that I gave up just a few days into it. Digestion and acne issue started just about immediately. I then met a guy who was a professional bodybuilder. Right off the bat, he asked me to get on steroids, which of course I was completely unaware about. I was so blinded by the dream of a good physique, that I almost made up my mind to start a steroid cycle. Thank god that I was so short on funds at that time, that I had no option but to not do it. Education Days passed but the passion in me didn't die. I started reading about natural bodybuilding on the internet. Alongside, I started making friends with sensible and 'fitness-educated' guy on too. It was from here on where I started learning about the importance of nutrition and training. Self taught, I applied the learning and they did work, but at as much as I wanted. This didn't discourage me. I didn't look back kept reading EVERYTHING that was readily available. This photoshoot transformation which I recently had is all due to the help of Nagarjun Chowdary who is an intern with GetSetGo Fitness, an online fitness coaching platform. This is the best shape I have been in by far and everything was done 100% naturally. Fitness to me is a lifestyle which should be a part of life for everyone.
  7. In 'MXP Body Love', we ask people with amazing bodies the key questions about how to achieve, maintain, and basically take care of our bodies in the best way possible, while seeking their guidance on the same. While we want to know hacks on seemingly superficial topics such as how to look good without clothes, we also want to delve deep and discuss bigger issues such as body positivity, acceptance, how to deal with insecurities, and also how to move past difficulties and strive to reach the best version of oneself. Our 'Body Love' expert here is actor Dheeraj Dhoopar. © Dheeraj Dhoopar 1. One food item you should never, ever eat? I feel one must never eat anything made out of refined flour (Maida). It has no nutritional value at all and causes a lot of problems later on in life. 2. The one body part you should never ignore when it comes to workout? The one body part that is ignored the most but must never be ignored is legs. Working out legs has the most benefits, amongst all the body parts. It helps develop cardio vascular strength, helps burn fat faster and also helps in increasing metabolic rate. 3. Natural fuzz vs. waxed/trimmed body hair? I feel trimming body hair is the most convenient, and hence is the best. It saves a lot of time, and also does not affect the skin adversely. If someone naturally has less body hair, then nothing like that. © Dheeraj Dhoopar 4. Grooming essentials - what are the products you can't do without? I can't do without my perfume, and I definitely cannot do without my hair products. I have a lot of them and I keep buying new stuff to experiment with. Whenever I travel out of country I make it to point to get new products, or products that are not easily available. © Dheeraj Dhoopar 5. Shave down there or trim it? I feel trimming is better any day. Saves time and effort. © Dheeraj Dhoopar 6. Best lighting for clicking nudes (or just for the boudoir)? I think natural light during monsoon season is the best when it some to shooting nudes. That light is uniform and one can play with it to any extent as it's not too harsh. © Dheeraj Dhoopar 7. Did you ever face any insecurity about your own body? What did you do to deal with it? I have never faced any insecurity with my body. I know my body well and I know what suits my body. One thing I know is that I have a tendency to put on weight, and so I make it a point to only eat and drink what my body can handle. © Dheeraj Dhoopar 8. What is the toughest challenge according to you, when it comes to obtaining and maintaining a body in its peak shape? I feel the toughest challenge is to keep at it forever. One may attain a good physique but maintaining it forever it the toughest thing to do. A lot of mental toughness and will power is required to continue doing that. 9. Not everyone is content with the way their body looks. How do you suggest one should deal with it? One most know their body to the core. Once you understand your body, you will be comfortable with whoever you are. I don't think anyone who meets you will judge you on your body, because there are a lot of other things you need to work on before you focus on that. © Dheeraj Dhoopar 10. The lines are constantly thinning, when it comes to what is beautiful and what is not. Body positivity is slowly catching up, and the 'accepted standards' of beauty and fitness are getting questioned. What are your views about it? I completely support it, as there can't be any set parameters to judge anyone physically, especially since we live in a society. I feel getting comfortable with our own body by accepting the flaws makes us open to various other forms of body types around us, which is essential for our own mental well-being.

Our 'Body Love' expert here is actor Kunal Kapoor. © Instagram/kunalkkapoor 1. One food item you should never, ever eat? I believe one should consciously avoid eating fried food. I grew up eating fried food, and the college I went to had the best Pav-Vada. I, however, have given it up completely, and haven't indulged in it since the past two years or so. © Instagram/kunalkkapoor 2. The one body part you should never ignore when it comes to workout? Legs. Unfortunately, in our country, it's always somehow about 'looking fit' than actually being fit. It's always about looking muscular and filling up the T-shirts. So people don't really work on their legs - which is absolutely unhealthy, not to mention unaesthetic. Apart from legs, glutes are also important when it comes to overall fitness, not only to look hot in a pair of jeans, but to maintain a healthy core as well. Also, we should also train the smaller muscles in our body regularly, that often gets ignored, thereby causing muscular imbalances and injuries. © Instagram/kunalkkapoor 3. Natural fuzz vs. waxed/trimmed body hair? I'm absolutely comfortable with the natural fuzz, but I'm open to trimming or waxing if a role demands it. © Instagram/kunalkkapoor 4. Grooming essentials - what are the products you can't do without? A good face wash, a good perfume (I have a huge collection of perfumes), and a nail-cutter. © Instagram/kunalkkapoor 5. Shaving Vs. trimming? Shaving seems to be a lot of work. Trimming is far easier. Anyway I like my stubble, so trimming it is. © Instagram/kunalkkapoor 6. Best lighting for clicking shirtless pictures? Till this point, honestly, I never thought about it. © Instagram/kunalkkapoor 7. Did you ever face any insecurity about your own body? What did you do to deal with it? I did, of course. Even though the popular belief runs that only overweight people get body shamed, it's not true. I was skinny as a kid, was always conscious of it. I tried to deal with it by taking up physically demanding stuff, in order to prove myself in front of other kids. I discovered the magic of exercising and workouts when I was about 16, and have never looked back since. I started doing martial arts, push-ups, pull-ups, and also started going to the gym. Even though I did it mainly to just look good at that point in time, it proved to be life-changing. © Instagram/kunalkkapoor 8. What is the toughest challenge according to you, when it comes to obtaining and maintaining a body in its peak shape? I have a terrible sweet tooth. I can finish off mithhai boxes or bars of chocolates in minutes. Even though I control it well now-a-days, it's still challenging for me. Also, I'm an overall foodie who comes from a family where everything is cooked in desi ghee and food is rich and delicious overall. Ghee is good for you, btw, provided you limit the consumption in case you're trying to build an aesthetically appealing physique. © Instagram/kunalkkapoor 9. Not everyone is content with the way their body looks. How do you suggest one should deal with it? I think the only way to deal with that is to look at it with a different approach. One should of course try to look good, but that should never be the aim with which they should plan their workouts. The goal should be to always be stronger than what you were yesterday. That way, you remain consistent, and automatically gain a better physique. I have seen really strong looking, muscular people who can't even touch their toes. What's the point of such shallow satisfaction in terms of how your body looks if it's not strong and flexible enough? Also, you should have fun while working out. Remember how we used to do somersaults and cartwheels effortlessly as children, and can't seem to do it any more when we are adults? Perhaps that's just because we forget to have fun once we grow up. © Instagram/kunalkkapoor 10. The lines are constantly thinning, when it comes to what is beautiful and what is not. Body positivity is slowly catching up, and the 'accepted standards' of beauty and fitness are getting questioned. What are your views about it? One should stop following trends, because they are just that - trends, and they will keep changing. What a body should look like will keep changing, and you can't keep up with that. What one needs to look at is their overall well-being. By that, I don't mean only physical well-being, but their mental and emotional well-being as well, and there can be multiple ways to achieve that. For example, I do an hour of meditation every morning, and that seems to help me out a lot in terms of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. So all one needs to focus on is what they feel about their own physique, and their own health, rather than focusing on what the world thinks about it.

The one body part you should never ignore when it comes to workout? I'd say legs. You should always train legs. © Instagram/saqibsaleem 3. Natural fuzz vs. waxed/trimmed body hair? Waxed/Trimmed Body Hair. © Instagram/saqibsaleem 4. Grooming essentials - what are the products you can't do without? A good body wash, a collection of perfumes, & a good face wash. © Instagram/saqibsaleem 5. Shave down there or trim it? No comments. © Instagram/saqibsaleem 6. Best lighting for clicking nudes (or just for the boudoir)? Why would I click nudes? I don't click nudes. © Instagram/saqibsaleem 7. Did you ever face any insecurity about your own body? What did you do to deal with it? I was a little chubby as a kid, but somehow the fat didn't make me conscious about anything. I was a sportsman. I played sports & it was all good. I eventually lost that extra weight. © Instagram/saqibsaleem 8. What is the toughest challenge according to you, when it comes to obtaining and maintaining a body in its peak shape? The toughest challenge is the diet - to get the food right & to keep it really clean. That's undoubtedly the toughest thing when it comes to maintaining a body in its peak shape. © Instagram/saqibsaleem 9. Not everyone is content with the way their body looks. How do you suggest one should deal with it? One should just be happy with whatever they have while always trying to be a better version of themselves. One should always motivate themselves, and push themselves to try and be a better person, along with working towards a better body everyday. It's essentially an everyday affair. © Instagram/saqibsaleem 10. The lines are constantly thinning, when it comes to what is beautiful and what is not. Body positivity is slowly catching up, and the 'accepted standards' of beauty and fitness are getting questioned. What are your views about it? I think one should concentrate on just being fit, rather than 'looking fit'. You don't need to have a six pack to be fit. You're fit if you can comfortably finish a 5 km run, irrespective of what people say. All I care about, superficially, is just looking good in all sorts of outfit - right from jackets to T-shirts. That is sustainable and would suffice for me.

While we want to know hacks on seemingly superficial topics such as how to look good without clothes, we also want to delve deep and discuss bigger issues such as body positivity, acceptance, how to deal with insecurities, and also how to move past difficulties and strive to reach the best version of oneself. Our 'Body Love' expert here is actor Sooraj Pancholi. © Instagram/soorajpancholi 1. One food item you should never, ever eat? I won't comment on any food item, but I strongly advise against taking fat burners. I always see youngsters ingesting fat burners without any proper guidance, and that should be a complete no-no, for your general well-being in the future. © Instagram/soorajpancholi 2. The one body part you should never ignore when it comes to workout? Legs, for sure. © Instagram/soorajpancholi 3. Natural fuzz vs. waxed/trimmed body hair? I have never waxed my body. I'd say trimmed. © Instagram/soorajpancholi 4. Grooming essentials - what are the products you can't do without? The basics. Perfume and Vitamin E cream suffice for me. © Instagram/soorajpancholi 5. Shave down there or trim it? It really depends on the occasion. © Instagram/soorajpancholi 6. Best lighting for clicking shirtless pictures / nudes (or just for the boudoir)? Again, depends on the kind of picture I'm going for, but I'd say top lighting doesn't work for me, even though it's popular. © Instagram/soorajpancholi 7. Did you ever face any insecurity about your own body? What did you do to deal with it? I'm still insecure about my body. I feel that is what takes me to the gym every day. I feel that's not essentially a bad thing, because while I'm not obsessed with it, I don't want to feel complacent as well. I feel it's okay to feel that way, because even the most successful bodybuilders are not completely happy with their body. © Instagram/soorajpancholi 8. What is the toughest challenge according to you, when it comes to obtaining and maintaining a body in its peak shape? Diet, without a doubt. It's extremely difficult to strictly maintain a diet all year round. © Instagram/soorajpancholi 9. Not everyone is content with the way their body looks. How do you suggest one should deal with it? No one can be perfect. Perfection is a myth. Especially, with the advent of social media, especially Instagram, the pressure of obtaining a particular standard has been mounting on everyone. I feel instead of chasing something unrealistic, one should actually work towards something sustainable, and what they feel at peace with. Even the best of bodybuilders aren't 100% happy with their physiques, but they strive to achieve what matters to them. We should take a cue from them and work towards goals that we ourselves have set, and not participate in someone else's race. © Instagram/soorajpancholi 10. The lines are constantly thinning, when it comes to what is beautiful and what is not. Body positivity is slowly catching up, and the 'accepted standards' of beauty and fitness are getting questioned. What are your views about it? I think it's amazing. I feel body positivity is essential because it boosts everyone's self-confidence. One doesn't need to have an eight pack to look good. A little bit of tummy or curves are beautiful in their own way, and everyone needs to understand this. A quintessential 'beach' body might look aesthetically appealing from outside, but it's not necessarily healthy if it's loaded with steroids. I think people should focus more on being actually fit, rather than focusing on looking fit. If you feel fit, you are automatically beautiful, and no other validation is required post that.

The one body part you should never ignore when it comes to workout? Legs. © Instagram/pulkitsamrat 3. Natural fuzz vs. waxed/trimmed body hair? Waxed/trimmed. © Gaurav Bhatt 4. Grooming essentials - what are the products you can't do without? Skin oils help keep your skin hydrated, and bees wax balm - a multipurpose miraculous balm that keeps dry skin and chapped lips at bay. © Rohan Shreshta 5. Shave down there or trim it? Depends on the demand ;) © Gaurav Bhatt 6. Best lighting for clicking nudes (or just for the boudoir)? Moonlight ;) © Instagram/pulkitsamrat 7. Did you ever face any insecurity about your own body? What did you do to deal with it? Never! One feels insecure only when one starts to compare with others. Every body is different. Every muscle group reacts differently to your workout and diet regime. Find an active balance in life and make more active and wise choice of food and lifestyle. © Gaurav Bhatt 8. What is the toughest challenge according to you, when it comes to obtaining and maintaining a body in its peak shape? After sometime of hard hitting and consistent workout there comes a tipping point when your body's just about go on a roller coaster change overall. Patience is what will help here!! Just when you think body's not responding to workout or being stagnant for sometime now, throw in a challenge, change your regime, shuffle things around and the body will happily move forward with you on this fitness journey. © Instagram/pulkitsamrat 9. Not everyone is content with the way their body looks. How do you suggest one should deal with it? Never compare. Never chase any sort of unattainable Instagram-ish Photoshopped physique! Every body had strong points and weak points. Recognise them and make the weak ones strong and strong ones stronger. © Gaurav Bhatt 10. The lines are constantly thinning, when it comes to what is beautiful and what is not. Body positivity is slowly catching up, and the 'accepted standards' of beauty and fitness are getting questioned. What are your views about it? I have no opinions when it comes to what is a beautiful body! I like a fit body. That's beautiful! And fit doesn't just mean that one has to have six packs etc. It's about moving your ass every single day and shunning the sedentary lifestyle. It's about making wise food choices. It's about how you feel when you done with any sort of activity, be it weight training, functional training, jog, cycle, martial arts, dance, swimming and what not! But move that ass to keep that heart pumping in a healthy fashion.

I am allergic to corn, but I eat that too when the craving is too much. © Instagram/imkaranwahi 2. The one body part you should never ignore when it comes to workout? Legs. It's the base of your frame, and stronger legs mean a better frame. You don't have to go mad with heavy weights, but one should make it a point to work on them for sure. © Instagram/imkaranwahi 3. Natural fuzz vs. waxed/trimmed body hair? I have become a fan of natural fuzz with time, though I don't mind either. © Instagram/imkaranwahi 4. Grooming essentials - what are the products you can't do without? I believe in the basics. A body wash, a perfume, and mouthwash suffice for me. © Instagram/imkaranwahi 5. Shave down there or trim it? Let's just keep that a mystery? © Instagram/imkaranwahi 6. Best lighting for clicking nudes (or just for the boudoir)? Not a fan of nudes. If you're comfortable in your own skin, lighting honestly doesn't matter. © Instagram/imkaranwahi 7. Did you ever face any insecurity about your own body? What did you do to deal with it? I have never really faced insecurities about my body. But I make sure that if I want to achieve a certain goal, I work towards it. © Instagram/imkaranwahi 8. What is the toughest challenge according to you, when it comes to obtaining and maintaining a body in its peak shape? I think obtaining a good physique is easy, but maintaining it is the hard part. No one can be in peak shape for a really long time, so you gotta know where to draw the line, and at what point u can maintain it easily. © Instagram/imkaranwahi 9. Not everyone is content with the way their body looks. How do you suggest one should deal with it? Well, body shaming is the reason people feel uncomfortable. But I feel everyone needs to have a goal and work towards it. Every body type is different and every person is different- so what works for someone, might not work for you. Get inspired, but don't copy. © Instagram/imkaranwahi 10. The lines are constantly thinning, when it comes to what is beautiful and what is not. Body positivity is slowly catching up, and the 'accepted standards' of beauty and fitness are getting questioned. What are your views about it? I feel the pressure of looking ripped or chiselled has got to do with the fad than people actually wanting to be fit. Fitness has never been about how you look, but it's about how you feel, and in the process, if you obtain a chiselled structure, that's an add-on. People are finally realizing that it's more important to be healthy than to be size 0 or have an eight-pack. It's important to understand that accepted standards have been set by people only, and what is great for one, may not be for others.
  13. We grew up admiring Bollywood stars for a number of reasons - some for their charisma, some for their physique, some because of how good-looking they were. However, sometimes, those criteria change. For example, Suniel Shetty wasn't really admired because of his fashion sense back in the '90s, during his peak years, but look at the man now! He is 57, but he looks incredible, and we won't even be exaggerating if we said he looks better than ever. He was recently spotted at the airport in a fitted T-shirt and jogger pants, and we couldn't help but admire how excellently he is embracing age. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani To have maintained that toned, musclebound physique at the age of 57 in itself is worthy of appreciation, but Suniel sure knows how to do justice to it by dressing right. We love his choice of T-shirt. The royal blue perfectly complements his skin tone. Plus, it's doing wonders for that perfectly shaped salt-n-pepper beard as well. © Viral Bhayani The fact that he has chosen to wear a pair of well-fitted jogger pants in light blue, shows that he understands how to utilize the shade card in terms of choosing outfits. We are in love with the combination. It is classy, and extremely versatile. © Viral Bhayani Mr Shetty's choice of footwear shows that he is all about minimalism and class. What other footwear, other than a pair of white sneakers, can possibly look better with this outfit? © Viral Bhayani He has kept the accessory bit minimal, by opting for a pair of aviators and a silver 'kada' - simple, but classy. The youngsters are jealous, Mr S. And rightfully so!
  14. Everyone might have seen the internet famous picture of The Rock's cheat meal after five to six months of strict dieting where he ate 12 pancakes, 4 double dough pizzas, an entire tray of brownies, and a jug of milk. Basically, all the junk food a mountain can stomach in a sitting. Just reduce the amount of food being eaten and insert every weekend instead of the five to six months and that is you. Every week, a majority of people on a diet do the deluded 'deserved cheat day' and wreck their progress and have average physiques all their life. Either they are constantly deviating between diet days and cheat days or they have totally given up on their physique goals. © YouTube Truth be told, the concept of cheat days is pretty shitty and it does not help anyone! Reason #1: You Start Labeling Food Items As 'Clean' Or 'Dirty' The concept of cheat days means you label certain foods as 'good' or 'clean' and certain foods as 'bad' or 'dirty' and this misses the entire picture. Any food in isolation does not have beneficial or harmful effects on your body composition. It will always come down to calories and macronutrients. Yes, some foods are less nutritious and some are more nutritious but by themselves alone, they do not mean anything. It is the entirety of your diet. You can still have an average physique or stay fat by just eating those 'clean' or 'good' foods if you are eating a lot of calories via them. And by this labeling of 'good' and 'bad', you can invite the creation of a terrible relationship with food in the long term. Reason #2: Cheat Days Make You Fat (Mostly) By having these so-called deserved cheat days every weekend, you are eating a shit load of calories and undoing your progress. Let's assume that your maintenance is close to 2200 kcals and to lose weight, you are eating 1700 kcals per day. You follow that strictly from Monday to Friday and then Saturday and Sunday are 4000 kcals each. By doing this, you are effectively eating calories over and above your maintenance calories for the entire week and those extra calories are going to be stored somewhere. In short, you are going to gain fat. Reason #3: You Can Incorporate These Treats Or Foods Into Your Routine If you get your basics about dieting right, i.e. understand calories and macronutrients at a basic level, this will change the entire dieting situation for you. Every food has a certain amount of calories coming from the grams of protein, fats and carbohydrates in it. Yes, it holds true for both of your 'clean' and 'dirty' foods. You can moderate the food that you like and tend to binge on into your routine regularly. Having majority (70 to 80%) of calories and macronutrients for the day from the more nutritious food items and the remaining calories (20 to 30%) coming from these less nutritious foods that you like binging on. © YouTube This way, you can have a better food relationship and enjoy the dieting process more instead of doing these shitty cheat days and staying average.

  15. Looking at a well-built physique and thinking that the person is knowledgeable about fitness and nutrition is a wrong assumption. It's common for trainers with the biggest muscles to have the most numbers of clients on the floor. In the same way, people tend to listen to that fit Instagram model more than a person who might be 10 times more knowledgeable just because the Insta model is ripped (or Photoshop-ripped) 365 days a year. And this is wrong on so many levels! © YouTube Now, don't get me wrong here. Want to build bigger arms? Find the guy with the biggest arms in the gym and replicate his every trick, right? Nope, wrong! That's because you would be ignoring numerous factors that come into play here. From genetics, to training age, to nutrition, to exogenous assistance, the list here is endless. This is almost foolish to think that the random advice given by that buff dude in the gym is Holy Grail. © Pixabay It is true that dream physiques are the result of years or sometimes even decades of hard work, dedication, patience and consistency in the gym. But many of these so called 'natties' that you see in gyms or on the covers of fitness magazines are actually very, very gifted when it comes to genetics. Also in almost 99% of the cases, they are on steroids. And being enhanced means that no matter which technique they use, they will make progress and keep growing or keep getting shredded, which of course a natural guy like you won't. Confused? Think about it, tomorrow just because a bodybuilder claims that he developed huge arms by doing 1000 reps and eating frog legs, would you start doing the same? Just because a fit looking person says something and (tries to) sound knowledgeable and technical about fitness and nutrition, does not make it true automatically. In other words, someone who looks good does not necessarily have to be an expert in the field of training and nutrition. On the other hand, someone who is not the most ripped or the buffest dude can know a lot more about the art and science of training. Case in point is that of knowledgeable writers/speakers who often get criticized for not being big enough or ripped enough. All a good coach or trainer needs is to know things about fitness that you don't; stuff that was learned in class, through books, through personal experience, or by innovative genius. That person also needs to be passionate about teaching weight training or fitness and has academic qualifications which shows that the person has put in time and effort in learning the art and science of training and nutrition.

Our 'Body Love' expert here is model and actor Prateek Jain, who was also Mr World India 2014. © Instagram 1. One food you should never, ever eat? I'd give it straight to you, because I myself follow that religiously - please avoid fried and sugar laden foods. It's a must. © Instagram 2. The one body part you should never ignore when it comes to workout? Legs, definitely. Indian men have this weird fixation with working only their upper body, which results in the unfortunate and unsightly condition which is called 'chicken legs'. Please train legs, folks! © Instagram 3. Natural fuzz vs. waxed/trimmed body hair? Trimmed, definitely. I want to see my definition when I'm working out, but I can't take the pain of getting waxed. Trimming works perfectly well! © Instagram 4. Grooming essentials - what are the products you can't do without? I just can't do without three things which are basic, but extremely important: my perfume, my body butter, and my sunblock. © Instagram 5. Shave down there or trim it? It really depends on my mood. I do both, from time to time, but I'd say trimming works better when you have a busy schedule like I do. © Instagram 6. Best lighting for clicking nudes (or just for the boudoir)? Why don't I just leave it for the photographer? (Winks) © Instagram 7. Did you ever face any insecurity about your own body? What did you do to deal with it? Well, I have always been into sports. The result? I was skinny AF. Plus, when you're out in the sun all day, you get tanned like you've been to the sun. So yes, pretty much these two were the biggest issues I had with my body. © Instagram 8. What is the toughest challenge according to you, when it comes to obtaining and maintaining a body in its peak shape? Diet, without a doubt. When you want a shredded physique, you need 6 hours' worth of sleep, and probably 4 hours in the gym. But the rest 14 hours, you need to be on top of your game about what you're eating. Trust me, it's tough. © Instagram 9. Not everyone is content with the way their body looks. How do you suggest one should deal with it? Work towards getting your dream physique, of course. But along with that, it's extremely important to embrace what you have. When you're comfortable with your own body, you automatically become really attractive. © Instagram 10. The lines are constantly thinning, when it comes to what is beautiful and what is not. Body positivity is slowly catching up, and the 'accepted standards' of beauty and fitness are getting questioned. What are your views about it? I like how people have started becoming aware about body positivity. The usage of social media platforms to promote messages about inclusivity is something which I really find fascinating. No matter what size or shape you have, the key is to just embrace the same and be happy, provided you're healthy and fit. That's all!

Our 'Body Love' expert here is actor Udaybir Sandhu, who just made his Bollywood debut with Akshay Kumar in 'Gold'. © Instagram 1. One food you should never, ever eat? Eat whatever you like but in a smart way. Do not punish yourself by not eating all the time. Eat anything and everything but once in a while. Please eat whatever you like because that will make you happy, but you need to be in control. My day comprises of 90 percent healthy food and 10 percent unhealthy food because I'm already in shape and I can burn those extra calories with one or two hours of exercise. But for someone who needs to get in shape, it has to be 100 percent healthy eating everyday (maybe have a cheat meal once a week till you achieve the results). Once you get the results, you'll know how your body reacts and you can adjust your exercise routine and diet accordingly. © Instagram 2. The one body part you should never ignore when it comes to workout? Chest and Legs both. I think these two body parts define a perfect body. © Instagram 3. Natural fuzz vs. waxed/trimmed body hair? Trimmed hair. You got to wax or trim regularly if you wish to see the results and also it makes you look younger. © Instagram 4. Grooming essentials - what are the products you can't do without? I try to keep everything very natural as I hardly use any products. Natural rose water is something I always rely on. © Instagram 5. Shave down there or trim it? Definitely trim. © Instagram 6. Best lighting for clicking nudes (or just for the boudoir)? I need to try it and get back to you on that one haha! © Instagram 7. Did you ever face any insecurity about your own body? What did you do to deal with it? Well, I have always been into sports but never had a great frame like an athlete.I had to work harder than the rest to have a defined body and that included going to the gym twice a day for 2 months when I was in college. © Instagram 8. What is the toughest challenge according to you, when it comes to obtaining and maintaining a body in its peak shape? Maintaining rock hard abs for sure. That's the time I completely go on a low-carb diet - which is very hard. © Instagram 9. Not everyone is content with the way their body looks. How do you suggest one should deal with it? Stop eating unhealthy food all the time and not doing any form of exercise. You need to maintain a balance in your daily life. Start slowly and don't give up. Start with 3 days of workout a week and then increase it slowly. Also, start with 50 percent of healthy diet at least, and then shift to a 100 percent healthy diet plan.The initial phase is always the toughest. © Instagram 10. The lines are constantly thinning, when it comes to what is beautiful and what is not. Body positivity is slowly catching up, and the 'accepted standards' of beauty and fitness are getting questioned. What are your views about it? Well, it depends on what makes you feel happy and pretty. It could be eating a lot and not working out or vice versa but you also need to respect your body by keeping it healthy. I'm not saying you become good-looking by getting fit but it definitely helps you stay active and more focused in life, and that in itself makes you feel pretty and confident.

Our 'Body Love' expert here is actor Sahil Salathia, who answers 7 intimate questions about his physique. © Sahil Salathia 1. One Food You Should Never, Ever Eat? To be honest, try and avoid sugar and junk as much as you can. Keep your one or two cheat meals in place every week but don't make a habit of consuming sugar and/or junk every other day. Personally, I even avoid white rice completely. I have replaced white rice in my diet with quinoa. I have even found a substitute for wheat chapatis in 'naachni roti'. These small changes in your diet go a long way and once you form a habit of them, life seems super normal, unless you are a Bengali and just can't live without rice haha! Btw, I love Bengali fish curry with white rice. That is my ultimate food fetish. Hence, I am going to marry a Bengali girl who can make me fish curry every now and then. Rest of the time, I'll cook quinoa and 'naachni roti' for the two of us. © Sahil Salathia 2. The One Body Part You Should Never Ignore When It Comes To Workout? For me, it's legs and chest. As Indian men, we love huge shoulders and that's it, we stop there. Most of us then look like some strange species that has legs made of paper and shoulders of steel. It's very important to have a body that's proportionate and not out of order when you look at it from head to toe. Plus, having strong legs automatically helps you in building a strong core. Chest happens to be my personal favourite body part to work on. I like it tight and toned and not so huge. Lean is in, and rightfully so! © Sahil Salathia © Sahil Salathia 3. Natural Fuzz Vs. Waxed/Trimmed Body Hair? I would say it depends on my mood. Sometimes, I like to look like an animal that is not really into fixing body hair. And then, that guy with that trimmed body hair is also me! I prefer trimming body hair though because it's definitely more hygienic and weather-friendly in a city like Bombay, where I currently live. Waxing is a major no for me. It hurts, man, I have been told. 4. Grooming Essentials - Top 5 Products? 1. My medicated soap called 'Acneguard' that keeps acne under check. Clear skin is a major plus for anybody, be it a man or a woman! 2. Sunscreen/sunblock. Could be any brand as long as the SPF is good enough to save that skin under the sun. 3. B Blunt volumizing leave-in spray for that perfect hairdo. © Sahil Salathia 4. Clinique Aloe shave gel for a good shave. Since it's Aloe Vera based, it really cools the skin down and helps with cuts, if at all. 5. Clinique charcoal face wash for that extra push for a relatively cleaner face and to keep all that Bombay pollution ruining the skin under control. © Sahil Salathia 5. Shave Down There Or Trim It? I like to trim it mostly. But not that I have never shaved it. So, yup, both...depends on my mood. I'm such a moody guy I tell ya! © Sahil Salathia 6. Best Lighting For Clicking Nudes (Or Just For The Boudoir)? Top light. Body looks amazing. Now, since you are taking nudes, you might as well look your naked best! *winks* © Sahil Salathia 7. Any Last Minute Tip? Just stay happy from within, man! I know it sounds preachy but it's true AF. Meditate if you can take some time out. Don't miss your workouts because they will fix your mental health also and you will obviously look sexier naked. Now, who doesn't want that? Picture Credits: Tanmay Mainkar
