Here's how Shah Rukh Khan managed to achieve that chiselled physique in Pathaan
With so many positives around Shah Rukh’s much-awaited film, Pathaan,there’s one thing that has beaten everything else in terms of limelight and attention from the people, and that is King Khan’s jaw-dropping transformation. Whether we talk about Shah Rukh’s chiselled abs or ripped physique, the results he achieved at the age of 56 have inspired almost everyone. Thus, today, we will break down the steps, tips, and rules that Shah Rukh Khan strictly followed to achieve his drastic transformation in Pathaan. So without further ado, let’s get straight into it!
1. Shah Rukh Khan followed a strict 'No Sugar Diet' to achieve those abs
In recent decades, the no-sugar diet has gained a lot of popularity in the health business, and people across the globe are strictly opting to include it in their diets. Some of the biggest benefits of a no-sugar diet are that it helps massively in losing weight, preventing obesity, having clearer skin, reducing inflammation, and so on. These are precisely the reasons why Shah Rukh Khan said no to sugar during his body transformation for Pathaan, and it’ll be fair to say that all those efforts paid off brilliantly.
2. Shah Rukh Khan maintained a balance between the intake of Micronutrients and Macronutrients
One of the most difficult things to achieve when you’re working on achieving abs is to strike a perfect balance between the intake of Micronutrients and Macronutrients. People often put a lot of focus on getting as many Micronutrients as possible and don’t pay a lot of attention to Macronutrients, which are equally important for getting chiselled abs.
However, that wasn’t the case with Shah Rukh Khan, as he followed a strict diet chart that had a perfect balance of both Micro and Macro nutrients. It is one of the reasons why Shah Rukh’s transformation isn’t all about his abs, but his overall physique has improved drastically, which is the direct outcome of striking a suitable balance between Micronutrients and Macronutrients.
3. Shah Rukh Khan did both weight and strength training during his fitness transformation for Pathaan
Shah Rukh Khan is reportedly going to lock horns with John Abraham in their film, Pathaan, which is why it was important for King Khan to work on his physique. Everyone is aware of John’s physique and the muscle power that he already has shown in most of his action films, which is why Shah Rukh needed to maintain a physique that could give competition to John.
If reports are to be believed, Shah Rukh included weight and strength training in his fitness program. While with the help of weight training, he achieved explosive fitness, strength training helped him build muscle mass and made him stronger. No wonder seeing John and Shah Rukh up against one another in the film will be a spectacle for the audience.
4. Shah Rukh Khan stayed hydrated while building six-pack abs
Shah Rukh Khan worked extensively in the gym in order to achieve the results on which everyone is drooling over right now. However, it wasn’t a cakewalk for the 56-year-old, and one thing on which he had kept a strong tab on was staying hydrated all the time. From taking fresh water to natural juices multiple times in a single day, Shah Rukh paid strong attention to his body’s hydration, which helped him in achieving a healthy physique.
5. Shah Rukh Khan worked consistently in the gym for his look in Pathaan
Over the years, time and again in his many interviews, Shah Rukh Khan has admitted that he had worked tirelessly to reach the pinnacle where he is today, which is why he never takes his success for granted. Well, we have to admit that he has once again proved the mettle of his hard work and sheer discipline when it comes to preparing for his characters.
