Ab roller on travel & kids on my back, adding fun to routine: Sankalp Chopra

| Updated on May 22, 2020 Published on May 22, 2020

1. I try to hit the gym at least three to four times a week. I prefer early morning workouts. But as long as I can spare one to two hours anytime of the day to work out, it is a sure shot uplifter. My key focus is on overall fitness and my usual workout involves weightlifting at least three times a week and cardio-based workouts at least once a week.

2. Cycling is another sport I have recently been inclined to and have found it fun and a great workout. The days I am occupied, a simple drop-down and a few sets of push-up variations, which can be done anytime and anywhere, do the job for me.

3. While travelling, I tag along my ab roller with me for doing short body-weight workouts, including core strength exercises.

4. When I miss gym, both my kids, especially my daughter, assists me with simple body-weight exercises. She sits on my back to add extra weight for push-ups or for core workouts, making the whole workout routine so much more fun.

5. I usually take a very regulated diet high in protein and fibres, along with a good proportion of carbs. I start the day with a heavy breakfast consisting of four whole eggs toast, peanut butter and an espresso and end it with a light dinner with loads of salad and some cheese and fruits.

A letter from the Editor

Dear Readers,

The coronavirus crisis has changed the world completely in the last few months. All of us have been locked into our homes, economic activity has come to a near standstill. Everyone has been impacted.

Including your favourite business and financial newspaper. Our printing and distribution chains have been severely disrupted across the country, leaving readers without access to newspapers. Newspaper delivery agents have also been unable to service their customers because of multiple restrictions.

In these difficult times, we, at BusinessLine have been working continuously every day so that you are informed about all the developments – whether on the pandemic, on policy responses, or the impact on the world of business and finance. Our team has been working round the clock to keep track of developments so that you – the reader – gets accurate information and actionable insights so that you can protect your jobs, businesses, finances and investments.
