New Delhi: The Olympic gold medallist Neeraj Chopra clinched a silver medal in the World Athletics Championships in Oregon to script history for the nation. Track and field games, where Neeraj has held the Indian flag on the international stage, require a lot of fitness and endurance to keep on performing. It is true that medals are not grown on trees, they are made by burning on the field. Neeraj Chopra is one such athlete who works on his fitness tirelessly.
Recently, he tweeted a video of him training to gain back his fitness. His fans must be happy to see him back as he got injured during the Oregon games and missed the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham. In the video, he can be seen climbing a tall pipe with his bare hands. This shows how much strength he holds in his shoulders and hands as it is not at all easy to climb such a structure by pulling all your body weight. This goes on to prove the strength behind his consistent performance of 85 m+.

At the time when his friend and on-field rival Arshad Nadeem touched the 90 m mark in Birmingham, Neeraj seems to be motivated to achieve that mark soon. According to reports, when Neeraj had to lose weight after the Tokyo Olympics, he started a tough workout regime called Tabata circuit, an app-aided routine that involves abdomen and core workouts. For any athlete, the core defines strength and balance while playing, so it is tough but really important to keep the core strong.
Neeraj missed the CWG and the Monaco Diamond League, but this video is a ray of hope that we will see him competing in the Asian Games which will be held in Hangzhou, China next month.
