In an interview, Michael Mando got candid about his workout routine. “I try to go to the gym and I walk everywhere. I like to do circuit training. So I’ll focus on major muscle groups on one day and try to keep my heart rate up and incorporate plyometrics in between,” said the actor. He also finds ways to keep himself active by doing other activities.
He shared: “And lately, I’ve taken an interest in biking. I bought a really nice speed bike, so I clip myself in and take these long rides by the ocean. There’s an adrenaline rush and that really nice feeling of the wind hitting your face. It’s really meditative for me.”
