Deepika Padukone’s workout regime
Deepika, who battled depression, revealed that it was the athlete in her that gave me the strength to fight and never ever give up – remember, the sexy curvaceous heroine was a badminton player before setting her foot in the film industry. Besides making healthier food choices, she also follows a strict fitness regimen, which is a combination of cardio, weight training, dance, and Yoga exercises.
The actress also includes Pilates in her fitness routine. Recently, celebrity fitness trainer Yasmin Karachiwala, who introduced Deepika to Pilates a few years ago, took to Instagram to post a video in which the actress can be seen doing some Pilates workout.
It is learned that Pilates and stretching have worked wonders for Deepika as it helps strengthen her core, increase her flexibility, and improve her posture. In one of her posts, Karachiwala said that Deepika had the perfect Pilates body.
Turns out, the actress is not a gym person, however, she likes to hit the gym when she is travelling and/or has a busy day. Deepika exercises daily and does not miss out on her yoga session for even a day. It is the different types of asanas she does every morning, which help her look young, fresh and gorgeous. She also loves dancing, which also helps her burn calories.
The bottom line is that adopting a healthy lifestyle, which includes eating healthy and daily fitness routine, can give you a flat belly, help you lose weight, build strength and stamina, perhaps achieve a lean body like Deepika.
