Virat Kohli’s discipline and work ethics are unparalleled as far as his fitness is concerned. Perhaps the fittest cricketer in the Indian side, whose individual game rotates around a lot of running between the wickets while batting, maintains strictest of diets and fitness schedules to ensure he remains in his best shape.

Kohli’s attitude has certainly rubbed on many others in the Indian side. There are several Indian cricketers who keep posting videos of them sweating it out in gyms or taking part in activities that keep them fit. (IND v AUS live scorecard)

However, the Indian captain wants not only his teammates, but also his fans to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Keeping the same in mind, Kohli had recently rejected a multi-crore offer to endorse an aerated drink. Kohli said he would never endorse something that he will never consume himself.

The Indian captain recently took to Twitter to post a short video of him doing one-handed push-ups, an arduous exercise for many. Challenging his fans to take up this exercise, Kohli wrote, “How many one handed push ups can you do? #TrainToLive #LiveToTrain.”

The Virat Kohli-led Indian cricket team have taken to the field on Sunday afternoon in the first ODI of their five-match series against Australia, at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. The two teams will also play a three-match T20I series post the ODIs.
