After six seasons on SNL, actor and funny man Jay Pharoah is probably best known for his top-notch impressions and jokes. But when it comes to his health and fitness, the comedian doesn't play any games. For the latest installment of Gym & Fridge, Mens Health met up with the 33-year-old at his Los Angeles home to discuss how hes kept in shape amid quarantine.

His secret? Juiceand lots of it. Watermelon juice, ginger juice, grapefruit juice, and more. He makes his go-to drink by putting beets, apples, limes, and lemons into his trusty juicer. Pair that with a mostly protein and vegetable diet and he said hes good to go for the day.

The former SNL star said its sometimes difficult to keep up with his diet when crazy filming schedules get in the way and food options are limited. He even admits he fell off the wagon while on set for his latest film, All My Life.

I have a cheat day like every two weeks, he said. Ill indulge, have a nice burger, and get some fries, but make sure that I get back on track afterwards. Thats a timeshare. Enjoy it while were here but were not going to stay here.

Pharoah said he grew up being the "fat kid." Now, he works out about five days a week and is constantly switching up his workout routine to help build muscle.

While working out at a home gym can get tough, the actor said he leans on his family and meditation to stay motivated and keep his mind fit. But when he needs a little extra push, he has another secret weapon: what he calls "warrior music."

"When you come in my gym, youre not going to hear Drake playing all the time," he said. "No offense, I love Drakes music, but when I come in here, Im trying to be a warrior, so I listen to warrior music.

Now that's a playlist we'd love to hear.
