David Beckham’s son Brooklyn Beckham seems to be following in his father’s footsteps. No, not with soccer. Brooklyn Beckham’s workout and healthy diet regimen seem to be heavily influenced by his retired pro-footballer dad’s.
For all intents and purposes, David Beckham is not a bad person to take after. Take for example; Brooklyn, 17, and David, 41, are regularly spotted sipping on healthy smoothies at local juice bars after their cycling workouts.
David Beckham is best known for his 20-year soccer career where he played for teams such as Manchester United, Real Madrid, and LA Galaxy. Brooklyn also has a history of playing football for the Arsenal U16 team; however, he was released after the 2014-15 season.
Brooklyn recently took a photography course in New York City, and now David Beckham’s eldest son is frequently spotted hitting the gym and working on his fitness routine. Brooklyn is often photographed lifting weights, hiking with his parents, as well as skateboarding.
Brooklyn also seems to share a lot of healthy habits with his 19-year-old actress-girlfriend Chloe Moretz. Brooklyn and Chloe actually met in a SoulCycle class back in 2014, and are often seen eating healthy lunches and enjoying workout dates together.
Still—it’s David who seems to influence Brooklyn’s healthy lifestyle. So, what’s David Beckham’s diet like?
David Beckham’s Diet and Healthy Lifestyle
To help maintain David Beckham’s lean body physique, the former soccer star eats nutrient-rich foods, healthy fats and lean protein (i.e. chicken and fish). Lean protein helps with muscle repair while healthy fat helps maintain muscle growth.
David Beckham is also a big fan of complex carbohydrates, such as cauliflower, spinach, soybeans, and cabbage. David Beckham reportedly avoids high-glycemic carbs, such as white bread, white rice, and corn flakes.
In a typical day, David Beckham eats three meals, along with healthy snacks. For instance, Beckham could eat a cheese and tomato omelet for breakfast, fish fingers for lunch and pasta Bolognese for dinner. Nuts would be considered a healthier snack.
David Beckham’s Workout Regimen
Brooklyn Beckham is in great shape—and his workout regime is pretty similar to his dad’s. Some of David Beckham’s favorite exercises include cardiovascular exercises, agility training, abdominal exercises, and weight lifting. Special training exercises called Plyometrics also helped David increase his speed and agility during his soccer-playing career.
David Beckham prefers whole body workouts instead of isolated workouts that focus on a single body part. Beckham’s high-intensity workouts allow him to maximize his heart rate. The intensity of the workout means that David Beckham’s workout is never boring (no wonder Brooklyn is such a fan).
