“You’ve got to do it. He goes running and I go cycling.”

The EastEnders favourite has also shared snaps of himself decked out in cycling gear while enjoying bike rides.

This isn’t the first time Adam has toned up by using exercise.

He completed the London Marathon in 2017 and again in 2019.


Running can be a great way to get fit and Adam is sure to have burned a lot of calories while training for the 26 mile races.

In fact, the average runner will burn around 80 to 140 calories per mile.

Of course, this will vary based on the runner’s height, weight and speed.

A marathon usually requires months of training and Adam is sure to have improved his fitness while putting in the hours.

A low carb diet plan is often credited to helping slimmers get into shape. 

When following the plan, those hoping to lose weight can eat foods including meat, fish, vegetables, nuts and eggs.

Foods high in unhealthy carbs such as sugar are off the table.

This can include bread, pasta, rice, sweet treats and high carb fruits.
