This is what one of Hollywood's greatest actors, Samuel L Jackson, does to stay fit

Samuel L Jackson's Instagram is filled with food pictures--the kind of food lesser mortals like us are never going to enjoy. But that's not the point; the point is, that despite being such a foodie as Samuel L Jackson is, at the age of 68, how does he keep so fit and hale and hearty?

Actor Samuel L Jackson's weekly workout regime includes heavy-duty exercises like Pilates and weight training.

The 68-year-old actor undergoes an intense fitness routine. He also fits in some time for relaxation, reports metro.co.uk.

"I do Pilates three times a week, weight training and conditioning three times a week and acupuncture and massage twice a week," Jackson said.

The Django Unchained actor loves having therapeutic after-care treatment, including the Chinese method of putting needles into the skin to target pressure points, as well as cupping to help with any aches and pains or inflammation he is left with after his workout.
