Physical Exercise and Bodybuilding

A look at Ibrahimovic‘s daily physical activity routine and diet at 40 (video)

So how does the man who describes himself as “god” keep up his form despite being nearly 40 years old? A quick look at his workout at Milanello explains just how.

The veteran forward focus on both power and mobility. Most efforts throughout the 90 minutes involve bursts of energy – sprinting, headers, shooting – the importance is undeniable.

At the same time, given the fragility that comes with his age, prehab is equally crucial and that includes a lot of mobility work.

Ensuring joints and muscles are well conditioned helps prevent injuries – while at Manchester United, Zlatan suffered an ACL injury that ended his season prematurely.

So here’s what a typical workout looks like for Ibrahimovic:

Personal Chef

When you’re one of the best football players in the world, you get paid a lot of money. Most professional athletes spend their money on cars, houses, and lavish jewelry. But Ibrahimovic spends money on his body. He has a personal chef who creates meals so his weight remains between 92 and 94 kilograms.

This is a very important concept that many young players should take note of. You can have a longer career by eating the right kinds of foods and taking care of your body.

Plus, a personal chef can actually make the food taste good. Eating healthy doesn’t have to be bland when you have a personal chef.

Healthy Fats

Ibrahimovic had an interesting habit of eating eight almonds a day early on in his career. This was advised to him by Italian dietitians when he played for the Juventus Football Club.

Eight almonds may seem like strange number, but it was probably calculated based on his body weight and nutritional intake.

There are many healthy benefits to almonds that can help everyone from professional athletes, to regular people. They are packed with antioxidants, nutrients, and healthy fats. Almonds may also help with weight loss and they can reduce hunger, because of the fiber and protein.
