Piolo Pascual has been busy keeping himself healthy and fit amid the extended lockdown period due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Recently, the hunk actor shared a peek at his fitness routine that his fans and followers can also do at home while under quarantine.
On Instagram on Tuesday, August 18, Piolo posted a video of him doing a series of exercises using only a mat, a medicine ball, and pair of dumbbells. His workout routine included squat burpees to target his lower body, mountain climbers to work his abs, and front raises to hit his shoulders.
“PAPAwis,” he simply wrote in the caption of his post.
According to Philippine health officials, one of the best ways to combat COVID-19 is to boost one's immune system through exercising, and keeping an overall healthy lifestyle.
Piolo, 43, has always been physically active.
In an interview with Metro.Style, the “Since I Found You” star said he always finds time to work out despite his busy schedule.
“I workout once a day, everyday. Because you can interchange routines, like bike today, run the next day, swim or do badminton on the side. During break time, I bring my mat and workout, or run or play badminton for an hour on the side if I could. I always prioritize to do training so I do not feel sluggish because you get to sweat out all the toxins in your body,” he said.
Piolo said he considers fitness not only as his passion but also one of his investments.
“In showbiz, you are your own representative. You are your own product, so for me, I have to present myself at my best. So how do I do that? By having a good, healthy lifestyle and the right state of mind. I take care of my health and present myself the best way possible,” he said.
