THINGS YOUR FAVORITE BOLLYWOOD CELEB DO
If you want to emulate the way they keep fit, here are some things to keep in mind:
1. They take out time to stay fit
Research suggests that weight loss is all 75% about consuming a healthy diet, and 25% is exercise. While celebrities find it tough to work out because of their busy schedules, they make sure to get their body moving every time they get an opportunity.
For instance, when Bollywood beauty Shilpa Shetty Kundra was in Manali recently for a film shoot, she made sure to perform some of her favourite yoga poses in a picturesque setting.
“Manali isn’t called ‘Dev Bhoomi’ (the Valley of Gods) for nothing! ? The energy and beauty are exhilarating. So inspiring that I decided to start my day at the break of dawn with the mountain pose in front of the mountains. Starting with Padahastasana, Parvatasana, Marjariasana… this flow opens up the whole body; strengthens & stretches the back, hamstring, calf muscles & shoulders; improves digestion & blood circulation. If you want to be immovable like the mountains, then you must try this flow,” said Shilpa in her Instagram post.
2. They do interval training
Since celebrities do not have too much time on their hands, they prefer to move their body in short bursts rather than working out for hours at end. That’s because high-intensity workouts are effective when it comes to boosting metabolism and toning muscles. They increase your heart rate to the maximum, and help you burn calories even post your workout sesh.
When the covid-induced lockdown had just begun, Sara Ali Khan gave us a sneak peek into her 3-minute Tabata workout, a high-intensity interval training workout. The sesh included eight rounds of heavy duty exercises for 20 seconds with 10 seconds between sets.
3. They opt for well-rounded workouts
We know cardio is good for aerobic fitness, while lifting weights helps you tone your body. And that’s why celebrities know both are equally essential. That’s why they go for both cardio and resistance training that includes sprints to boxing to even jump rope, and some bodyweight exercises. Some also prefer to do kickboxing and work out all their muscles!
Bollywood actress Rakul Preet Singh also shared some stories that showed her punching in the air, and mastering the art of boxing during quarantine.
