Right after completing his graduation in engineering, Prabhas started to look for his carrier in movies, since his father was also working in the same field, so Prabhas was always attracted towards acting. Soon he got to debut in Telugu movie Eshwar in 2002. And he began to learn acting and soon became the king of Tollywood. When he was at the peak of his carieer in 2015, he got an offer for S.S. Rajamouli’s movie – Baahubali. This movie was released in ten different languages not just across India but across 7 continents. The movie was a huge success and after this came its sequel Baahubali 2, which actually broke all the records of Indian Cinema including Bollywood and made Prabhas the Unreachable King of Indian Cinema World. He won all the prestigious awards and got a world wide recognition for the movie.
But he worked really hard for this movie; not just in acting part but did a lot of work on his body as well. He has to built a “Hulk Like Body” to suit the role of Baahubali. Lets checkout the lastest vital stats of Prabhas that he has after Baahubali.

Making such a huge build is not an easy task. But Prabhas, with his dedication and hard work achieved it in a matter of days. So, let’s checkout what Prabhas’s Workout plan to achieve Baahubali’s giant physique.
Prabhas Raju Workout Plan:
Prabhas is very much inspired from WWE wrestlers and wanted to use their technique for revolutionary change. He spent a lot of time in observing the wrestlers and even bought equipment’s costing 1.5 crore to build his gym at home.
Below is Prabhas workout schedule:
He would work out six times a day that includes four sessions in the gym. It is too much, but building such a massive hulk sized body requires such massive efforts. Please do not start to gym four time after reading this. He use to work under proper guidance of professional body trainers and had special dietary supplements that supports his body to withstand this hard workout.
Apart from this, he follows a morning cardio session for about an hour that would include swimming, running, hoping on a bike. After this he use to work on building the core; and for this he use to so below mentioned exercises:
- Mountain Climbers
Start with plank position with core tight. Push alternative leg to the arm and return to the starting position. To make this workout rigorous, try a push up after both the moves. Start with a pushup and a mountain climber and increase the intensity slowly by one pushup two mountain climbers and so on.
2. Squat Jump
Start in a squat position. Then jump, maintain a momentum with arms and hop back on the squat position by lightly landing on the toes. You can opt for 20 second squat jump and 10 second squat hold. Repeat for 5 minutes.
It’s a move for that killer workout session. This one is just enough to sweat it out. Stand with feet hip wide. Jump and immediately land on the high plank position, do a quick pushup and quickly jump back to hand and jump again for the next start.
Thereafter he followed a three hour session concentrating only on abs and muscle building.
1. Hanging Leg Raise
Just like the normal leg raise when you are lying on the floor and use your core to lift your legs 90 degree. The same is to be done while hanging and lifting your legs parallel to the ground. If you do it with a little twist, with legs side to side, it can give you much needed results soon.
2. The Plank
It develops overall strength and stability for the body. An elbow plank is more effective, you can also incorporate side planks as you have to bend on side while doing it alternatively.
3. Exercise Ball Pull In
It builds stability as it requires great balance to do the exercise. It will not only train your abs but also helps in giving the curves you need for a perfect body.
Next is the Muscle building session for Prabhas. The evening session is usually about building muscles by lifting weights and doing HIT.
There are certain rules that Prabhas likes to follow while lifting weight, you might want to follow the same.
- He makes sure to do 30 rep with certain weight. It is quite a big set for the beginners, so we suggest you to start with 12 reps per set if you are new to gym workout.
- Too much weight or too less weight, both are harmful in their own way, defining a perfect weight is important. This is a very important rule. Never use a heavy weight without a senior mentor supporting you.
- While doing repetitions its best to take time and do it rather in a fast mode. As it won’t give you the much needed sculpt rather it will be a waste of energy.
- Follow the 70-30 rule. This rule means, give 30% efforts and focus on your workout and 70% on your diet plan.
Now lets have a look into Prabhas’s super diet plan that helped his body withstand these rigorous and insane workout sessions:
Prabhas Diet Plan:
The diet chart is simple and anyone can follow it.
He believes in staying hydrated. He makes sure to drink 10-12 glasses of water every day. As dehydration makes you weak and sick easily.
He starts his day with 40 half boiled eggs blended with protein powder. These are divided in equal quantities throughout the day.
His dietician made sure to exclude all the carbohydrates and he should be bulkier for the role.
He took 6 meals a day that included protein rich food, and instead of rice he consumed brown rice. He incorporated the habit of small and balanced meals. A huge meal is not necessary just the right proportion of proteins that would also encourage healing in the body.
He had to take about 2000 to 4000 calories a day, which required him to eat every 2 hours. This means to gain weight, you should eat after regular intervals of time. So having 6 to 7 medium meals in a day is better that having 3 meals a day.
He says that the body needs right amount of post and pre workout diet to make sure your efforts in the gym are not wasted.
Though there was a high requirement, still Prabhas never had steroids for building body. He says steroids are body building drugs which are risky and can cause health problems. They might give you quick results but those results won’t last longer. He always motivates people to follow a natural diet to build body.
This was it from Prabhas’s workout and diet plan to build that giant Baahubali like body. Now it’s your turn to get into action. Follow what Prabhas did and be the next Baahubali.
