India's wrestling star Bajrang Punia has not let up in his training at all even as the entire country is locked indoors for two months due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Time and again Punia shares videos of his intense training session on social media and amazes his fans with his commitment to his craft.
On Monday, Punia shared another video of his acute cardio session and had an inspiring message to give along with it.
"Safalta ki yatra me dhoop ka bohot bada mahatva hai kyunki chaav milte hi kadam rukne lagte hain (In the journey to success, sunshine plays a very important role because as soon as there amid shadow, feet begin to stop)," Punia wrote along with the video.
सफलता की यात्रा में धूप का बहुत बड़ा महत्व है . क्योंकि छाव मिलते ही कदम रुकने लगते हैं । 🙏🏽 pic.twitter.com/v4RhYf8KsG— Bajrang Punia 🇮🇳 (@BajrangPunia) May 18, 2020
In the video, he can be seen performing customised burpees, weight training, lunges, a couple of rope training techniques, skipping and customised squats.
Four days ago as well, Punia had shared a video of his cardio session, which had him sweating profusely.
Even with that video, Punia had written, "Mai do hi cheezon par vishwas karta hun. Ek to apne bhagwan par aur doosra apni mehnat par (I have faith in only two things. One on my God and secondly, on my hard work."
