Rakul Preet Singh in Two-Piece Workout Gear Does Deadlift

“If you think training is hard , try losing."

Rakul Preet Singh is lifting heavy weights – in her two-piece workout gear. In a new social media post the Indian actress shows off her strength during a gym session. "If you think training is hard , try losing 💪🏼🔥Deadlift -65kg," she captioned the post. How does she approach diet and fitness? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 



Rakul is a yogi. "Yoga is a balance of life .. a connection of mind , body and soul, a feeling of being one with the consciousness .. yoga is a way of life !! Wishing all of you a #happyinternationalyogaday and a big thankyouuuuuu always for @anshukayoga for guiding me through this path of enlightenment," she captioned one of them. 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."



Rakul enjoys cycling, both indoor and out. 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. 



Rakul kickboxes. "Don't give up glove up," she wrote in a caption. Harvard Health maintains that boxing is a great way to build strength, improve balance, posture, hand-eye coordination, boost mood and endurance, and helps increase alertness.



Meditation helps Rakul maintain her mental health. "Meditate anywhere , everywhere even if it's a chair," she captioned a post on World Meditation Day. "When you meditate, you may clear away the information overload that builds up every day and contributes to your stress," says the Mayo Clinic. Benefits include:

  • Gaining a new perspective on stressful situations
  • Building skills to manage your stress
  • Increasing self-awareness
  • Focusing on the present
  • Reducing negative emotions
  • Increasing imagination and creativity
  • Increasing patience and tolerance
  • Lowering resting heart rate
  • Lowering resting blood pressure
  • Improving sleep quality


Strength Training

In her recent post Rakul engages in a hardcore strength training session, lifting heavy weights. According to the Mayo Clinic, strength and weight training help reduce body fat, preserve and increase lean muscle mass, and burn calories more efficiently. Strength training may also help you:

  • Develop strong bones
  • Manage your weight
  • Enhance your quality of life
