High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is one of the best ways to build strength and endurance. It works on core functional exercises, which are performed with great intensity with very small intervals of rest in between different exercises and sets. I have been doing weight training for a while and tried various techniques to build strength and endurance. I spoke with Rajesh, a top HIIT, strength and fitness trainer at RAAW gym in Pune. Rajesh recently won the Lift For India (an event dedicated to families of victims of Pulwama terror attack) held at Recomp gym. I had also participated in the competition and posted my videos here. Rajesh is known for strength, endurance and power. His best one rep in Squats is 200 kg i.e. 440 lbs.
Rajesh has won numerous fitness events at the national and state level and is a promising power lifter. He was kind enough to share time with me and recommended a few exercises for strengthening core and endurance. I prefer to record my videos impromptu for on the road feel. Thankful to RAAW management for their support in shooting the video and deeply grateful to Rajesh. I would be soon releasing my video as well. Its time to put a video face to the blog. Lot more exclusive work is coming soon. If you like the video, please subscribe to the You Tube channel.
Recently uploaded a video of my interview with Tinkesh on Twitter. I met Tinkesh at a gym in Pune and got impressed by his calm demeanor and true grit. In spite of adversity, he followed his childhood dream to become a fitness trainer through sheer determination. Tinkesh was electrocuted when he was a kid and lost both his legs and one arm. Over the course of his life, people helped him in his endeavor. A nonprofit, Aditya Mehta Foundation, sponsored his prosthesis for both limbs and Tinkesh successfully ran 10K and 5K long distance runs with Maj D. P. Singh “the Blade Runner” from India. Tinkesh follows a strict diet and strength training regime to keep fit. I spoke with him at my house in Pune, India.

So what are you waiting for, please apply for jobs at The Lego Group…I need to watch the Lego Batman movie sometime soon. Have a good night…
As an exception, I am publishing Lift For India competition held in the local gym near my place. The power lifting competition included three core strength exercises: Bench Press, Squats and Dead Lifts.
