Indian skipper Virat Kohli’s physical transformation is one of the most talked about topics from the past couple of years. He has been one of the most impactful cricketers in the world in recent times. It isn’t a surprising thing that all that requires a lot of devotion and focus on achieving your fitness goals. For a fitness freak like Kohli, weight training and cardio have become an integral part of his lifestyle.

During a conversation with CRICKETNEXT, Kohli’s coach Rajkumar Sharma talked about the change in fitness level of the run-machine in the last couple of years, he said, "He takes it so seriously that he got a gym built in his new house. He believes that fitness is very important if you have to succeed in international cricket. And his only goal in life is to keep raising the bar.”

Here are some insights of Virat’s gym training sessions:
Virat has been pretty regular with posting videos of his training sessions on his Instagram accounts. He posted a video of his morning cardio session.

Virat is fond of lifting weights and believes in training hard and according to him, fitness has no shortcuts. He also posted some videos of his weight lifting sessions.

An athlete needs to be strong in his lower body and squats happens to be one of the most important exercises for explosive power. Kohli also posted a video of him doing squats with weights.

Even when isn't playing any matches and when he is at home, the fitness enthusiast inside him doesn’t allow him to be relaxed and lazy. In one of his videos, he demonstrated the same.

The Indian skipper sometimes gets accompanied by his little stud when he sweats it out. Here is the video for the same.

After watching these intense videos one can easily guess that how Virat manages to carry this much stamina and endurance in himself which helps him to turn the singles into doubles.

Virat’s fitness coach says, "Whatever be his work schedule or travel scene, he always finds time to hit the gym”. This statement shows that how much punctual is Kohli when it comes to fitness.
