Freestyle Wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt’s Fitness Regimen.

Blog By: Kavitha Iyer.

Yogeshwar Dutt (born 2 November 1982) is an Indian freestyle wrestler. At the 2012 Summer Olympics, he won the bronze medal in the 60 kg category. He was awarded the Padma Shri by the Government of India in 2013. He won a gold medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.


In an interview Yogeshwar said he worked out twice a day with a six-hour gap in between, generally from 9 am to 6 pm and focussing on strength building. Yogeshwar is trained hard at the 83-acre Sports Authority of India (SAI) facility in Sonepat’s Bahalgarh village for Rio last year, where India’s best hone their grappling skills in gruelling training schedules. Yogeshwar had recently been to Georgia, US, for special training.

To enhance his stamina, endurance and cognitive ability, Yogeshwar is primed himself in the hypoxic chamber.

“Inside the chamber, the amount of oxygen in the air is reduced which forces our body’s cardio-respiratory systems to work even harder to deliver sufficient oxygen to the working muscles. This enhances performance significantly,” Yogeshwar explains in an interview for indiatimes.

Such training helps increasing power, stamina and endurance. It also helps in quick recovery.

“The good thing is now India’s dependence on foreign countries for such training will reduce. I feel we are gradually standing on our own feet in terms of modern sports coaching systems,” he adds.
