Sudhanshu who never misses his fitness routine explains, Everyday, I wake up at 5:30 am. After completing my daily chores, I pray and start my day with pranayam, I do about 5 different pranayamas in the morning. This helps me to stay active and energetic throughout the day. Then, I also hit the gym and I do weight training or floor exercises and any form of cardio. I spend about an hour and half in the gym which also includes my warm-up and cool down as it is equally important like working out. I also perform stretches. I exercise for 6 days in a week and one day is the rest day.
