He prefers doing 25 minutes of cardio in an empty stomach after a cup of black coffee without sugar. He either uses the elliptical machine he has at home or any cardio machine the hotel gym has during tours. Following this, he has a meal of one banana, oats, and a scoop of protein shake.

Jinder Mahal is exceptionally particular about his meals. Therefore, even when he is travelling, he carries his meals with him.

Either he uses the refrigerator in his hotel room to keep the meals frozen or puts in a request at the front desk to use the kitchen’s freezer. It’s a lot of work for him to maintain his six-pack bag system, but he ensures to stick to it.

Coming to eating out, he likes to stick to Chipotle because of the options of clean eating. Apart from that, Jinder Mahal likes to keep Taco Bell Hot Sauce or any hot sauce with him on-the-go. This way he can add flavour to any plain meals he purchases from delis or grocery stores.

Mahal doesn’t lift very heavy weights because he doesn’t want to put immense pressure on his joints. Therefore, the WWE Superstar prefers doing cardio on an elliptical machine rather than a treadmill.

During his workouts, he sticks to a series of compound movements such as deadlifts, lat pulldown, barbell rows, squats, bench press, and shoulder press.

He mixes these compound movements with isolation movements to maximize the efficiency of his workout.
