Her Workouts Are Quick But Intense

Hard and fast are two words describing Dua's approach to fitness. "It's high-intensity interval training, but it's so quick, it's over before it's even started," she explained to Vogue about her workouts. Each session involves 15-minutes of high-intensity interval training workouts, with lots of jumping jacks, mountain climbers, and burpees.

Dua wakes up and hits the gym, exercising at 8:30am, so she is sure to get in a workout. "This is normally the time I give myself to work out," she explained to Refinery29. "Whether it's on Zoom, doing a workout with my friend Ella in L.A. who leads a kickass workout class called Sculpt With Ella, or with my best friend Bunny who comes over to train me on days when I'm feeling super lazy and need someone to get me motivated, getting physical really starts my day off right." 


She Works Hard on Her Abs

Dua explained to Urban List that doing lots of ab work is the key to rock hard abs. "I think different variations of crunches like bicycle crunches are good. Leg raises are also great unless my back hurts. Planks are good although almost certainly my least favourite!" she said. 


Variety Is Key

Dua does a lot of workouts in addition to HIT, revealing to Refinery29 that some of her favorites include yoga, Pilates, or strength training. "Whatever it is, I try to change it up every day to keep things interesting," she added to Urban List. "I like that it's definitely a full body workout. Since starting boxing, I've probably been in the best shape ever. It's also a great stress reliever." 


She Doesn't Work Out Alone

Dua doesn't attempt to work out solo. "I would always be that person who made a new year's resolution, get a gym membership and then show up twice in the first week of January and then never go again," she told Urban List. "Now I love workout classes or working with a trainer. I feel like I'm pretty useless on my own, so I prefer being around other people working out with me."
