Sunday is cheat day for the Daiwa CEO when he eats everything he loves — ice cream and chocolates top the chart.

Arjuun Bajaj, CEO of Daiwa, starts his day early and ensures that he hits the gym first thing. “I do my cardio for 20 minutes, which includes stair climbing, the treadmill and cross-trainer. This is followed by weight training or HIIT for 45 minutes,” he says.

Bajaj concentrates on his chest, triceps, back, biceps, legs and shoulders, “I do kettlebells, TRX and bodyweight exercises on the three days I do HIIT. Post workout I do my stretches and back strengthening exercises such as hip bridges, CAT, camel or Superman. I believe that one should not lose focus towards health as it is the only thing that will keep you moving in life.”

Talking about his favourite exercise, he says, “Bodyweight single-legged squats and TRX training are my favourites. These really involve all your muscles throughout the workout and burns your fat down in just 45 minutes. I’m also a basketball player and usually play on weekends now.”

His diet is a balanced mix of water, veggies and meat. “In the morning, I have a protein shake along with eggs and oats. Two hours later, I eat a bowl of fruits. Lunch includes a bowl of rice, pulses and vegetables. For an evening snack, I have nuts and yoghurt. Dinner is usually chicken soup or chicken breast with vegetables.”

Fitness tips

Drink lots of water: With summer here, hydration during exercise is a must. The better hydrated you are, the more effective your workout will be.

Eat a balanced meal: The workout you do and the balance in your food are vital for staying fit. Ensure that you have the right amounts of vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates, and fats in your food.

Stay active: Even if you can’t hit the gym, just work out at home for 30 minutes. This can either be walking, running or a body weight workout.
