Out-of-favour India cricketer Suresh Raina showed that he still has a lot of steam and strength left in him. In the latest video posted by Raina, he is carrying a friend of his in the gym on his back as he gives fitness mantra to fans. Raina believes fitness is not about, gyms or fat diets. He believes there is much more to it than just that. Raina also feels there is no shortcut to fitness. The southpaw believes the desi way is the best way at times to go about it.

He also reminds his fans that having fun while workouts are essential. Humble Raina also thanks his friend for allowing him the opportunity to carry him on his back. His Instagram post was captioned as, ” Lifting on Back – Fitness is not about gyms, fad diets or shortcuts. Its a state of mind & a way of life. Sometimes you gotta go the desi way & grind out results. Dont forget to have fun along the way. My friend asked me for a lift, so i obliged.”

The southpaw is not in fray for the upcoming World Cup, but he would like to make a strong case for himself with some brilliant knocks ahead of the selection.

Meanwhile, Raina has been retained by Chennai Super Kings and will be seen in action in the upcoming season of Indian Premier League. Raina has been one of the most prolific run-getters in the history of IPL.
