Now this very question has been answered, blowing everyone's mind. The National award winning movie Baahubali is back with its sequel Baahubali 2 – The Conclusion, and it's bigger and better as per the reviews. In the spotlight of it all is of course Telugu megastar Prabhas.

Prabhas is said to have dedicated five years of his time for perfecting his role for the Baahubali series, and it has definitely not been an easy ride. His character of Amarendra Baahubali became a household name as soon as it hit the screens. Be it the breathtaking sword fights or spectacular war scenes or the enormous stunts, the audience loved him through and through and therefore expectations were high from the second part. And by the looks of Baahubali 2, he seems to have nailed it.
Prabhas garnered as many accolades for his build as he did for his excellent portrayal of the character of Amarendra Baahubali. And quite deservingly so, as the journey to build his body wasn’t an easy ride for the actor either. Did you know Prabhas apparently consumed 40 egg whites daily as part of his breakfast to bulk up for the role? Here’s a peep into the Telugu superstar’s fitness regime and diet -

Prabhas, a nature enthusiast, has an interesting gym set-up in his garden, as he loves being around natural environment surrounded by the greenery. The actor has mixed his love for nature and fitness and has been practicing outdoor fitness for quite some time now. His regime also consists of a lot of outdoor activities like cycling and running. Prabhas believes that working out in open spaces lets you breathe fresh air, which is so much better than inhaling the air of the air-conditioned gym.

Prabhas loves indulging in outdoor sports such as playing volleyball with his friends, whenever he gets some free time off his hand. Unlike many of his Telugu and Bollywood counterparts, Prabhas didn’t call a foreign trainer to train him for the part, but worked out with his local trainer. Prabhas also visited the US where he interacted with the wrestlers of WWE to understand their extensive training regimen. The actor studied their workout sessions, imbibing their mindset and body language to build body. And you thought sweating out in the gym was all that was required to build those bulging biceps?
