Ira Khan Shows Off Fit Bod Next to Husband Nupur Shikhare
Ira Khan is enjoying the newlywed life – in her swimsuit. In a new social media post, Aamir Khan's daughter, who married fitness trainer Nupur Shikhare earlier this month, shows off her amazing body in a bathing suit while posing with her husband. "Red red," she captioned one of the Instagram Stories. How does the new bride maintain her fantastic physique? Celebwell has the details on her health habits.
Ira does yoga. "I can hold it for long enough for @nupur_shikhare to leave the frame while someone clicks the picture. That's about it. But baby steps, right?" she captioned a recent post of herself doing a yoga handstand. There is a laundry list of reasons to do yoga, explains Harvard Health. "Researchers found that people who practiced yoga for at least 30 minutes once a week for at least four years, gained less weight during middle adulthood," they said. "People who were overweight actually lost weight. Overall, those who practiced yoga had lower body mass indexes (BMIs) compared with those who did not practice yoga. Researchers attributed this to mindfulness. Mindful eating can lead to a more positive relationship with food and eating."
Strength and Weight Training
Ira also does strength training with the help of her husband. "Can it be our wedding without a bunch of workouts?" she joked in a caption, revealing details about her workout, starting with push-ups as a warm up and then progressing to jump squats, Namaskar push-ups, squat and press, wide push-ups, side squats, burpees, donkey kicks to wrestler sit outs, and then handstands.
Ira goes on fasts. "I recently fasted for 15 days to help me kickstart my attempt to lose weight. I haven't been doing so well with the self-motivation and self-image department. I've been very active for most of my life and then in the past 4-5 years, I've been very inactive. I've put on 20kgs. And it's been really messing with my head," she wrote in a 2022 post. "I didn't lose a significant amount of weight in numbers – not that I could sustain anyway. But I did find a renewed motivation to try harder. And I found a rhythm. I'm doing everything I can to hold on to it now. I did a lot of thinking and reflection and monitoring," she added.
Ira also enjoys biking. "I want that cycle! And roads to ride it on. The e-bike pictures just have nice back drops. I don't want that cycle. Though I have to say, so much more powerful than I thought it would be," she captioned a post. The Cleveland Clinic explains that biking, a low-impact aerobic exercise, is great for building muscle, improving strength and flexibility, and improving balance. It can also boost mental health and help other health conditions, including arthritis.
You can find Ira hiking. "Top of the world," she captioned a post. "Hiking is one of the best ways to get exercise. No matter what type of trail you find yourself on, hiking is a great whole-body workout—from head to toe and everything in between," says the National Parks Service. Some of the physical benefits include building stronger muscles and bones, improving your sense of balance, improving your heart health, and decreasing the risk of certain respiratory problems. It also offers many mental health benefits, according to a Stanford University study.
Ira is a coffee drinker. "Today was a terrible coffee day for me. So throwback to a good coffee day," she joked on Instagram. According to the Cleveland Clinic, there are several benefits of drinking coffee in moderation. "It acts on your brain to improve memory, mood, reaction times, and mental function," they say, citing a study finding that caffeine can improve endurance and performance during exercise. It is also antioxidant-rich, can ward off diabetes, prevent neurologic disease, lower cancer risk, and ward off depression, they point out.
