Being the best cricketer in the world, it comes as no surprise that Sachin Tendulkar’s favourite way of staying fit is to repeatedly do what he is best at, i.e. play cricket. Batting for hours in the nets as a child, the Little Master’s will to be the best batsman he can be in different conditions across the world has helped him stay fit. It would’ve also gone a long way in helping him with his craft.
‘His fitness schedule is very specific to his needs. A lot of things are out of the box. His understanding of the biodynamics of exercise and the kinematics involved is astounding. His spatial awareness while doing a particular regime has in fact made youngsters look at him in awe. Apart from his sessions in the gym, his speed, agility and core strength is amazing. His discipline is impeccable, like a Navy Seal when it comes to fitness and eating patterns during a tour or off it.’, Ramji Srinivasan, a fitness trainer closely associated with the Indian team, told TOI. Besides batting (and making the bowler feel helpless), Sachin also does breathing exercises and practises meditation to keep his inner peace.
