Both Americans and Russians are fascinated by Vladimir Putin. He’s a larger than life world figure, a leader who is also a celebrity. Despite some controversy, he is slated to win his country’s next presidential election. What does the day-to-day life of this leader of Russia look like?
According to a Newsweek profile Putin is a night owl. He likes to work late into the night, so he does not get up until late in the morning. He will typically eat his breakfast around noon.
What does his breakfast consist of? Often he will eat a large omelette. Sometimes he will have a big bowl of porridge with some quail eggs on the side. In either case, his meal is accompanied with fruit juice and coffee.
After he is finished eating, then it’s time to exercise. The leader of Russia is famous for having an excellent physique. In fact, there have been many pictures of him, bare-chested, where he is seen riding a horse or swimming in the ocean. Yet those rippling muscles do not come without effort!
So he will have a substantial work out. He will often spend up to two hours swimming. While he swims, he also exercises his brain. During those marathon sessions, he his thinking is often more effective than when he is sitting behind his desk at the Kremlin.
