One of the most important factors in his physical fitness is in his mind.
“Mental strength is just as important as physical strength,” Ronaldo said of his training. But it’s not only about exercising and dieting. Cristiano confessed he avoids alcohol, which can have lots of calories and give you a gut.
Other tips to become as fit as the mega successful footballer are being disciplined and setting goals to keep track of your progress, which will go a long way to improve your fitness level, the Portugal captain says. Eating regularly, getting enough sleep, warming up and stretching, and mixing up strength training with high intensity or aerobic training are some of the things Cristiano Ronaldo suggests to stay fit.
Not many are going to have Cristiano Ronaldo’s legs, but he can certainly serve as an inspiration on how to make your fitness goals a reality.
