Hrithik Roshan is a famous Bollywood actor who has stirred up a buzz with his incredible body transformation where he went from fat to fit in just 2 months for his newest movie WAR. In this video, I am going to delve into what I believe is the truth behind his transformation and what you can learn from it.
DID HE REALLY PUT ON THAT MUCH MUSCLE?
The first thing to note about Hrithik Roshan’s transformation is that in his before & pictures, there is not much difference in size in his arms and shoulders, as well as an outline of abs. The biggest difference isn’t the amount of muscle that he put on, but more about shedding the fat. By getting much leaner, Hrithik’s transformation appears a lot more drastic than it really is.
DID HRITHIK ROSHAN DO THAT IN 60 DAYS?
The next thing that we need to look at with this body transformation is that there is a possibility that Hrithik’s transformation did not actually take place over the course of 60 days. In an interview with Aamir Khan, he clarified that his personal transformation for Dengal took place over the course of several years to build muscle and that the shedding of fat is what occurred in 5 months. Thus, it is likely that Hrithik Roshan’s transformation is being misconstrued.
TAKE A LOOK AT WHERE HE WAS “BEFORE”
The next and possibly the most important thing is that when looking at body transformations, such as Hrithik or Aamir’s, is to look at the default state of the individual prior to the transformation. Hrithik Roshan is known as the Greek God of Bollywood, and for good reason. Before his fat state, he was known for being in incredible shape and taking great care of his body. It is much easier, especially in your 40s and 50s, to get fit if you have had some sort of training base in the past. To make a 60 day transformation such as Hrithik’s, it would be incredibly difficult to achieve those results if he had not been in as great shape prior to his weight gain.
HRITHIK ROSHAN’S TRAINING
Hrithik Roshan’s transformation also involved an alteration to his training. Suffering from disc problems, he had to make sure that his training was safe but effective and did so by using what he called “Zero Momentum Reps” – a training style that I have been a proponent of in the past, especially when dealing with injuries. You should also take note that it is important to change your training styles when you start to notice your progress stalling. You can’t rely on progressive overload forever, so you need to change the style with which you change, just as Hrithik did.
HRITHIK ROSHAN’S MEAL PLAN
Lastly, it is important to understand that nobody can make a transformation like Hrithik Roshan did in just 60 days unless they have their nutrition in check. To lose that amount of fat and to become as lean as he is, he had to make sure that he was eating the right foods. However, that’s not the end of it; Hrithik has said himself that he found it much easier when he discovered the healthy foods that he enjoyed eating. If you can find foods that you enjoy eating, your diet will be sustainable and become a part of your lifestyle.
So, when looking at body transformations, such as Hirthik Roshan’s transformation or Aamir Khan’s transformation, it is important that we don’t just look at the start and end points, but that we look at how they made that transformation. In Hrithik’s case, it was having a default state that was lean and muscular, his muscle building took course over many years prior, he adapted his training, and he found sustainable eating habits.
