- Milind Soman shared a work-out post on Thursday
- "Was able to do 12 pull-ups with great difficulty," he wrote
- "The mind needs as much exercise as the body does," he added
Actor-model-marathon runner Milind Soman, who inspires every day with his fitness mantras, shared his experience of doing pull-ups after what appears to be a long time in an Instagram post. Milind Soman, who went running with his wife Ankita Konwar soon after lockdown restrictions were eased in Mumbai, wrote in his post on Thursday: "Was able to do 12 pull-ups with great difficulty after so many days in lockdown shows how quickly our strengths, both physical and mental, deteriorate with lack of exercise. We don't realise this till we are challenged. Either by something of our own choosing or the myriad situations life throws at us every day. The mind needs as much exercise as the body does, if not more, to perform to the best of its ability."
Milind Soman, who shared a video of him doing pull-ups, added: "We must do our best to train the mind to be calm and the body to be active every moment!" In the comments section Ankita revealed that Milind's pull-ups were preceded by an 8 km run: "And this right after an 8k! I was still normalising my breathing while recording it. You inspire every day."

How many things can you do with a melon ? Before you eat it 🤪 I eat fruits every morning, whatever is seasonal, a whole watermelon, a whole papaya, 5-6 mangoes, some bananas, yes all together 🙈 sometimes it takes me an hour!!! And then I rub the skins on my face :) . . . #thursday #thursdaymotivation #thoughtfulthursday #fitness #health #healthyliving #healthylifestyle #fruit #love #loveyourself #wellness #fitnessaddict 📸 @ankita_earthy

First run on first day of Unlock one!!! When you haven't run for 75 days, you have to take it slow 🙂 its unlock one for the body as well, so no matter the level of excitement, control is key ! Just a slow 5k enjoying the cool weather, mild drizzle and the lack of traffic and people, feeling F.I.N.E !!!!!!! . . And yes, I pulled the mask down while running and nobody was around! . . #betterhabits4betterlife #Live2Inspire #fitnessaddict #keepmoving #neverstop #nevergiveup #love #run #runnersofinstagram #runningmotivation #rain 📷@prasad_tt1
