Bollywood Star Esha Deol In Two-Piece Workout Gear Shares Gym Selfie 

Here are her fitness tips.

Indian actress Esha Deol is in the best shape of her life thanks to steady, consistent work over the years and long-term healthy habits. Deol, 42, shared a picture of herself wearing black leggings and a tank top, posing for a gym selfie with her trainer Satyajit Chourasia. "Under construction with this solid rock by my side 💪🏼🧿 The best @fitnesswithsatya ♥️ #workout #fitness #gymmotivation #stayfit #love #gratitude," she captioned the post. Here's what Deol's fitness and training routine looks like in her 40s.


One Hour Every Day

Deol believes every woman needs an hour a day to herself. "I have always been a fitness freak, whether it was training for films such as Dhoom where I worked very hard for the washboard abs," she told IndianExpress. "I have always been athletic and into sports. My body structure itself and blessings of good genes have helped. I like to work out, give that one hour to myself, no matter what. It is so important to not just workout to look good but for your mind as well. I follow a healthy diet. I don't eat a lot of junk food and don't starve at the same time. Maintaining a balance and not overdoing anything is important. Every woman should give herself an hour every day."


Love For Lifting

Deol loves strength training and cardio. "I run on the treadmill for 45 minutes, weight-train for 30, and practice yoga," she told Mid-day. "I love lifting. It helps keep muscles toned and proportionate, and makes me feel good because endorphins are released. I also love cardiovascular work because I can let my mind wander."


No Extreme Diets

Deol believes staying active is crucial for health and happiness. "Because we women are the ones who are keeping everyone together. We need to be strong emotionally, mentally and physically," she told IndianExpress. "Don't indulge in extreme diets and starve. Don't be too desperate to achieve a supermodel's figure. Give yourself time. Each individual is unique. Learn to love yourself. Do pamper yourself too. Swim, do yoga, walk, run, whatever suits you….but do something and give yourself that one hour in a day. That is called me-time."


Dancing Workouts

Deol is a talented and accomplished dancer. "Dance is a form of training that keeps you physically and mentally fit," she told Mid-day. "One has to remember the right steps, and also the appropriate techniques, and execute it on the beat. It is a body and mind workout."


Postpartum Care

Deol's postpartum workouts consisted of lots of walking. "If you are taking your kid for a walk on a pram, then perhaps put weights on your ankles and walk," she told IndianExpress. "That way, you are brisk walking with the kid and simultaneously toning your leg muscles. The leg is the most important part you hit during a workout, which takes care of the rest of the body automatically. Apart from that, just drink lots of water. We forget to hydrate ourselves when we do so many things. Sometimes, squeeze a lemon in it and drink it for vitamin C."
