Singh likes to share her favorite workouts on Instagram with her followers. She posts a lot of workout reels, videos, and photos on Instagram. One of Singh’s favorite ways to stay in shape is practicing yoga and meditation. She posted this photo on Instagram of herself doing a headstand yoga pose. She captioned it, “When life turns upside down simply adjust your view.” She also posted this reel of herself doing some meditation exercises.
Yoga isn’t the only way Singh does stretching and flexibility exercises. She also remembers to do other forms of stretching. Singh posted this photo on Instagram of herself doing a side leg stretch with cables. She captioned the photo, “Choose stretching over stressing.” According to Harvard Health, “Stretching keeps the muscles flexible, strong, and healthy, and we need that flexibility to maintain a range of motion in the joints. Without it, the muscles shorten and become tight. Then, when you call on the muscles for activity, they are weak and unable to extend all the way. That puts you at risk for joint pain, strains, and muscle damage.”
Singh has an impressive set of abs and a flat stomach. In order to have them, she does a lot of workouts that target her abs. Singh posted this reel on Instagram of herself doing a fun set of ab exercises, set to Sean Paul’s song “Temperature.” She is seen doing plank ups, mountain climbers, and part of a sun salutation stretch. She captioned the reel, “This is how I like to dance.” Having a strong core and set of abs is important. According to the Mayo Clinic, “Core exercises train the muscles in your pelvis, lower back, hips and abdomen to work in harmony. This leads to better balance and stability, whether on the playing field or in daily activities.”
In another of Singh’s workout reels that she posted on Instagram, she revealed that she likes to do full-body workouts. Several of her full-body exercises involve using weights and strength training. In the reel, she is seen doing kettlebell swings, using battle ropes, doing pulldown rows, and chest presses. She captioned the post, “Workout because you love your body, not because you hate it.” According to the American Cancer Society, “Strength training increases bone density and reduces the risk of fractures.”
Singh is a big fan of boxing as a way to stay in shape. She posted this reel on Instagram of herself doing boxing exercises with a trainer, set to “Eye Of The Tiger” by Survivor. She captioned the reel, “Don’t give up, glove up.”
