Read on to see 5 ways Lana Condor stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.
"I also drink at least half my body weight, in ounces, of water every day," she told E! about the importance of hydration. "Staying hydrated is such a must- and I genuinely feel better when my body is fully hydrated." According to the Mayo Clinic, hydration is important for a variety of reasons. Water helps get rid of waste through urination, perspiration, and bowel movements, keeps your temperature normal, lubricates and cushions joints, and helps protect sensitive tissues.
She Does HIIT Workouts
Lana trains with Paolo Mascittii who works out with her at the gym five days a week, guiding her with cardio and high-intensity interval training like squats and lunges. While her workouts are grueling, "it's worth it, because now I have a booty," she told Self. They also do exercises with a slam ball. "I hate it, but it's very effective," she said. "If I'm having a bad day or I have a little aggression, slamming that ball down on the ground really helps me. It always makes me feel a lot better when it's finished." There is a lot of research backing up the benefits of HIIT workouts, including body fat reduction, improved cardiovascular function, and mental health. It is also time effective.
She Prioritizes Mental Health
Mental health comes first, says Lana. "If my body is so sore and I need a day off, he's so understanding about that," she said. "My mental health is the priority, and my mental health is always better when I am active. But sometimes when your body hurts, you're like, I can't do anything, I don't want to get up. And so he's very patient. If there's a day that I feel the need to be a little bit more gentle with myself, he's great."
She Enjoys Group Fitness
Lana appreciates exercise classes. "I always do a little bit better in a class setting or in-person, just because I think that I have a competitive nature in workout classes," she told Self. "So I feel like I can really hit it hard." Pilates, boxing, and hot yoga sculpt classes are a few classes she likes.
She Eats in Moderation
Lana's approach to diet is "to eat what makes you happy," she told Bon Appetit. Her theory? Eat what you want but in moderation. "I've tried to take away noodles in my life, and it just doesn't work—I'm miserable! I always think to myself, 'Well, I could starve myself and go on a diet and be fucking miserable. But what if I die in a plane crash? Or, what if I have the most amazing meal of my life, and then I could still die in a plane crash, but at least I'd have a happy belly!"
