Shriya Saran maintains her slender physique and healthy well-being by taking care of herself. She tries her best to eat as healthy as possible and exercise whenever her schedule permits her. Working out is something that she enjoys. She also knows the multitudes of benefits she can get from exercising on a regular basis. She said: “I exercise every day, not because I am an actor but because exercising keeps me healthy and happy.” She also revealed that she doesn’t like working out at the gym.
When asked about her fitness philosophy, she answered: “I don’t chase the perfect figure. I’d rather focus on staying and eating healthy. A combination of running, swimming, yoga and circuit training works brilliantly for my body. ” But how does she stay fit exactly? She said:
“I exercise five times a week, and prefer doing it outdoors rather than inside a gym. That way, you sweat more and stay away from unnatural surrounding which air conditioned gyms trap you in. I start with a 20-minute run followed by 25 minutes of circuit training, which is an excellent high intensity but basic workout to strengthen the body. Back extensions, squats, lunges, push-ups, side to side jumps, jumping jacks, sit ups, bicep curls — I do it all in three sets of 15 repetitions each. The training works out various areas of my body.”
