How Kamala Harris’ husband Doug Emhoff stays healthy on the road

Since Augustwhen former Vice President Joe Biden picked Kamala Harris as his running mate in the presidential electionthe life of Harris’s husband, Doug Emhoff, was uninterrupted.

But the 56-year-old, who took time off from his job as an entertainment lawyer to join Harris on the campaign trail, recently said men’s health that despite the long hours, constant travel and terrible food options, he is in great shape.

Emhoff, a former competitive tennis player and divorced father of two, said the key was his strict fitness routine and what he dubbed his “Dougie snacks.”

“Every day is the same. Stay focused. Stay disciplined. Stick to your routine,” Emhoff told Men’s Health.

Emhoff said he always travels with turkey jerky, Clif bars, pistachios, almonds and water so his energy never crashes, even if he doesn’t have time to eat a meal before a campaign event.

Emhoff said he and Harris also work on junkies.

“When I met her, Kamala was training every day. She still does. It doesn’t matter if she has a meeting, she just wakes up early,” he said.

Emhoff said Harris also got him into the habit of working out every day. Typically, the pair take six to seven mile “walks” together and run up stairs when they get the chance.

Emhoff also does 30 minutes of yoga every day and four sets of one-minute planks.

Emhoff and Harris also rely heavily on Biden and his wife Jill for support after long, stressful days.

“They’re going through that too and they’re such great, normal, warm people. You know, we’ll talk to them,” Emhoff said.
