Kasey Kahne’s Healthy Living Tips
Welcome to the Inside Track, where Farmers comes together with NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne’s No. 5 Farmers Insurance team at Hendrick Motorsports, to give you their professional advice on everything from auto maintenance to healthy living tips.
Kasey Kahne has a reputation for being one of the most physically fit drivers in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series garage. For Kahne, working out and eating right is a lifestyle, something critical for his life on and off the track.
As fans, we can all learn a lesson from Kasey’s healthy living.
“I enjoy working out as much as I can,” said Kahne, driver of the No. 5 Farmers Insurance Chevrolet SS. “I tend to work out more early in the season than in the middle of the season when it’s the hottest out. In general, I’ll workout at least five or six days a week.”
Change it up
When it comes to his workout regimen, having a variety of activities is key for Kahne.
“I like running, biking and swimming,” Kahne continues. “Some of my favorite workouts are when I mix running with some sort of lifting. I might run one mile then stop to do 50 pushups, sit-ups, pull-ups and squats, and then run another mile and do another set like that.”
Keep it lean
Besides working out to prepare for the weekend, Kahne also eats lean on race day, focusing on foods that fuel his body to withstand the conditions he experiences inside the race car.
“My go-to race meal is probably chicken and salad so I eat pretty plain,” Kahne said. “I like eating simple foods on race day and not getting too full, either.”
It’s not all workouts and lean eating though! To stick to a healthy lifestyle it’s important to still enjoy what you eat…something Kahne knows all about.
After a long race weekend, Kahne likes to splurge a bit.
“On Mondays, I’ll enjoy Mexican dishes and really good heavy food.”
For Kahne and the entire No. 5 Farmers Insurance team, maintaining a healthy diet and a consistent fitness program both play important roles as they work each weekend to race into Victory Lane.
With 11 Sprint Cup Championships, Hendrick Motorsports is the most successful racing organization in NASCAR history. Kasey Kahne's No. 5 Farmers Insurance Chevrolet SS is supported by some of the most talented engineers, mechanics and race strategists.
