Today, we all are victims of stress and overloaded with duties, inconsiderate about our physical wellness and end up consuming comfort food.

Though cricketers are not one of the fittest athletes, recently the physical demands for the cricketer's body have increased dramatically.
Here’s everything you need to know about their fitness regime:

MS Dhoni and Strength Training

Apart from being one of the most popular cricket personalities in the world, MS Dhoni is also one of the fittest cricketers our country has ever seen. Strength training helps in improved flexibility and mobility, lowers injury risk, strengthens mental health (protecting from clinical depression and anxiety), elevates body image. Some of the favourite strength training exercises of MS Dhoni include:

  • Machine Chest Press
  • Dumbbell Chest Press

  • Walking Lunges with Dumbbell
  • Single Leg Deadlift
  • Reverse Lunges on bench
