चट्टान हथौड़े की आखिरी चोट से नहीं टूटती। बल्कि यह तो उससे पहले लगातार और बार-बार किए गए प्रयास है, जीस की वजह से सफलता प्राप्त होती है। इसलिए, जब कोई मुझसे पूछता है कि मैंने जीत कैसे हासिल की, तो मैं उन्हें उस प्रशिक्षण क्षेत्र की ओर इशारा कर देता हूं, जहां पर मैंने नियमित रूप से लगातार और बार-बार जीतने का प्रयास किया है।🇮🇳 जय हिंद जय भारत 🇮🇳

Bajrang Punia's Diet

Bajrang Punia believes in eating good organic whole foods. He adds desi ghee in most of his meals. The reason for the heavy meal is to keep the glycogen level high in the body which is required for producing immediate Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) required for anaerobic training which Bajarang Punia mostly performs.

Almonds are like a staple for Indian wrestler Bajrang Punia. He even drinks four litres of milk fortified with almond and desi ghee every day. Although four litres of milk may seem a little excess, wrestlers like Bajrang need micro-nutrients like vitamin D, vitamin BI, B6 and B12, calcium, which can be derived from this ghee-almond milk. Bajrang does not compromise on his lunch and dinner he eats an equal proportion of macro-nutrients in both his meal.

It is important to note that your diet depends on the way you train. Especially for athletes, diet plays an important role in their performance and training, as insufficient nutrient can deteriorate the health and can also cause injury. However, the diet requirement differs from different sports, for example, a cricketer will not be required to eat as much as a  wrestler does. Having said that, it is necessary to first determine your fitness goals and take consultation from a professional dietitian and fitness trainer before choosing any workout programme.
