My exercise regime
I train everyday anywhere between six to eight hours. I have been practising a variety martial arts like kalaripayattu, jiu jitsu, etc from a very young age. Also, I practise gymnastics with my trainer and other friends. I'm not really a gym person so I hit the gym three to four times a week for strength training and work on my legs, shoulders, etc. I believe that the body has wisdom of its own and in order to fine tune it, one must work out and indulge in adequate exercise.
My problem areas
I have never really had or have any problem areas as such, since I have always been fit since a young age.
I feel my strength lies in my brain because I'm very focussed and motivated when it comes to staying fit. The ability to go beyond determination and motivation lies in the brain. I don't consider myself a fitness freak but I guess I am one. Besides, gymnastics and martial arts, I also practise parkour.
