British actor, Idris Elba, is the cover star for Men’s Health magazine’s latest edition.
In this edition, Idris talked about his career, lifestyle health and more.
On his fitness regimen and emotional well-being, the ‘beast of No Nation’ actor said, “When I’m fit, I’m more focused. I have greater patience and my temper is more stable, so I’m better in almost all my relationships. I’m more vigilant about the sh*t I put up with. I see clearer. When I’m out of shape, I’m emotionally lazy.”
On his ultimate fitness goal, he said, “Some guys want to be toned or want to jog for miles, but my ultimate fitness goal is to be fight-ready. That’s what I strive for. That’s what I consider fit. I want to know that if I’m being wrestled to the ground, I’ve got the strength to fight a man off.”
