Chitrangda Singh in Workout Gear Says "Hair Flippin' Workout Done"

“Hair flippin’ workout done,” she captioned the mirror selfie.

Chitrangda Singh is hitting the gym in her workout clothes. In a new social media post the Indian actress shows off her amazing body post-sweat session. "Hair flippin' workout done," she captioned the mirror selfie, shared via her Instagram Stories. How does the 47-year-old stay in shape? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 


Four Workouts a Week

Chitrangda hits the gym four times a week. "I am not an exercise junkie but definitely an enthusiast. I like to try out different combinations of aerobics and cardio exercises for a well-rounded workout. Also, I'm not fanatic about a regimen or schedule. I try to be regular and dedicated and when I have a project, I like to get into shape for it, but it happens over a course of a few months, on and off," she told Times of India.



Chitrangda maintains that her father always woke her up early to go for a jog or play tennis, "but my favourite was always swimming. In fact, my dream body is not a skeletal size zero but a beautifully toned swimmer's or diver's body," she told Times of India. Swimming is a good way to get regular aerobic physical activity, according to the CDC. Just two and a half hours per week of aerobic physical activity, such as swimming, bicycling, or running, can decrease the risk of chronic illnesses. In addition to the many physical benefits, there are multiple studies supporting the mental health benefits of swimming as well. 


Cardio and Weights

Singh's trainer Promod Dadlani has her work out for an hour and fifteen minutes. The sessions include 40 minutes of cardio and include running, cycling or working on the cross trainer. "She gets bored easily, so I have come up with a range of exercises," he explains. She also lifts light weights but does lots of repetition — about 30 to 40 reps per exercise. She claims her upper thighs and calf muscles are her "problem areas," so she works on them a lot. "I like to have shapely legs," she says. "The impact of low weight-high repetition is higher for my body type and it's got the result I was expecting. Women don't have a high musculature so to maintain a toned physique, cardio-based exercises work really well."


Morning Cardio and Stretching

Chitrangada warms up in the morning by jogging for 10-15 minutes or cycling. She also stretches. "Stretching keeps the muscles flexible, strong, and healthy, and we need that flexibility to maintain a range of motion in the joints," says Harvard Health. "Without it, the muscles shorten and become tight. Then, when you call on the muscles for activity, they are weak and unable to extend all the way. That puts you at risk for joint pain, strains, and muscle damage."


High Protein, Low Fat Diet

Singh focuses on sticking to a high protein and low fat diet filled with fish, lean meat, fruits and nuts. "For breakfast I usually have an egg white sandwich, oats or nuts. I love fish so I have it grilled with vegetables and with bajra roti, brown rice or bread for lunch and dinner. After workouts, I snack on fruits, Oreo shakes or Twix bars. I indulge in my favourite fried eggs and bacon once a week," she revealed.
