When Roger Federer went on his remarkable 2017 run, people were stunned. How could he come back from 6 months off, in his mid-to-late 30s, and do that? And then people started asking questions about his longevity and what he ate to keep him going.
Man of Many wrote about Federer’s diet and workout plan, which isn’t as stringent as you might think. Look at his breakfast:
Waffles – The tennis star gets his important day off to a sweet start with homemade waffles, topped with a fruit compote.
Fresh orange juice – It might be high in sugar, but it’s high in Vitamin C as well. Plus, it’s quite tasty.
Coffee – Waffles and coffee make for a combination too delicious to refuse.
Shot of vinegar – If you haven’t read about the reported benefits of apple cider vinegar, it’s time you started.
As for the workout, that’s pretty standard for a world class tennis player:
- Stretches, jump rope, and sideline sprints to warm up
- Medicine ball work to build core muscles
- Resistance band exercises
- Cone drills
- Trampoline to work on balance
- Racket drills
- High-Intensity Interval Training for building energy needed for 5-set slugs, should they arise
