If you’ve seen the amazingly toned body of Tiger Shroff in his latest release Baaghi 2, then you know what we are talking about. If you haven’t seen it then just check out this picture:
Okay, now we are all up to speed – eyes on the text please! – we can begin talking about how the hell he managed to achieve such a toned body.
Thankfully for us, Siddharth Singh, a Mixed Martial Arts trainer for Reebok, has released a guide that helps beginners with forming a body just like Tiger Shroff so that by Baaghi 3, you can pretend you were an extra in the movie, only refused the main role because Tiger was too jealous of your abs.
Train in gymnastics
It may seem irrelevant, but gymnastics helps you develop all-round muscle coordination, flexibility and strength. Without these skills then training in any martial art or sport can be even more challenging and potentially dangerous.
To get a body like Tiger Shroff you need to train religiously. It’s not rocket science but make sure to focus on the consistency of training. That means you don’t always have to push yourself to lift the heaviest weight or spar the longest, but just keep training challenging and consistent and you’ll develop a lot quicker.
Here’s his weekly training plan:
12 sets of pull-ups of 4-8 reps
4 sets of lateral machine pull-downs (80-85kg) 10-12 reps
12 sets of low and one-arm dumbbell rolls of 100 kg of 4-8 reps

Eat protein and lots of it
Eat multiple high-protein meals throughout the day will help you really build muscle. A good mix of hard training and a good diet of healthy food and probably a bunch of supplements if we’re honest, and you’ll get the body you’ve always dreamed of.
His daily diet looks like this:
- Breakfast includes 8 egg whites and oatmeal
- He snacks on dry fruits and whey shake before lunch
- Brown rice with chicken and boiled veggies for lunch.
- Evening snack includes protein shake followed by Gymnastics practice.
- Fish and broccoli.
Focus on real-life martial arts
Don’t go thinking that fighting hard and on the offensive is always what you need. Take a step back and see what training is actually useful in everyday life and to help tone your body. Think about hand-to-hand combat over flying kicks and look into the techniques found in boxing, Muay Thai, wrestling, and Brazilian Jiu-jitsu to find a balance of power, endurance and physique.
Whatever method you choose, don’t expect results overnight. It will take a while to tone your body like that and as for Tiger, well he had months of intensive training beforehand to bring him up to size specifically for that role. So unless you can quit your job, hire a trainer and work out non-stop for six months, expect results to come a lot slower.
Do you think you could commit to a plan like this?
