Whether you know Priyanka Chopra from “Quantico,” “Baywatch,” her work in Bollywood, or her lavish wedding to singer Nick Jonas, you probably know there is a lot out there to envy about her lifestyle.
Also worthy of envy is her workout regimen.
Chopra takes a realistic, low-key approach to exercise. Here’s what Priyanka Chopra does to stay in shape.
She does her own stunts
One way to stay fit? Perform all the punches, kicks, and chokeholds most people only see on TV yourself.
“I have to stay super active and agile because I do my own stunts,” Chopra told Women’s Health magazine in 2016. “I do all my fights myself. I trust my body and my instincts.”
She also does her stunts in heels, which she demonstrated on Live with Kelly in 2016. During the demonstration, Kelly Ripa called her “freakishly strong.”
She does yoga
In 2008, she told the Times of India she finds the practice both “relaxing and very energizing” and “great to keep your mind and body healthy.” She also said her workouts tend to last around an hour.
In December, Chopra posted several Instagrams of her hitting the slopes in Switzerland, along with Nick and Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner. Skiing happens to be one of the best workouts a person can do — according to Time, alpine skiing combines endurance and resistance training, so it has the same physical effect as rowing or cycling workouts. Because of this, skiing has positive effects on the heart and circulation.
She mixes cardio and conditioning
According to Women’s Health Australia, Samir Juara, a trainer who has worked with Chopra, said she runs on the treadmill for about 15 minutes as a warm-up. Then, she moves onto strength and conditioning, which might involve push-ups, reverse lunges, reverse crunches, bench jumps, bicep curls, and planks.
She doesn’t devote too much time to exercise
Chopra is clearly fit. Still, she says she isn’t too obsessive about exercising.
“Life is just really fast-paced and you don’t have to kill yourself in the gym,” she told Women’s Health. “You don’t have to starve yourself. I love having my pizzas and burgers and buffalo wings, on the side, for sure. But I like staying fit as well.”
