New mommy Sania Mirza is taking her fans on a journey with her. No, we are not talking about a holiday, it is her journey to fitness after her pregnancy.
Sania Mirza has been sharing small clips under the Mumma Hustles hashtags and has been sharing how difficult it was for her to go back to the gym and continue going back. She also speaks about how she reached a stage where she felt healthy and confident with her body again.
The latest video that she shared is captioned, “Day 4-Getting into it. And it was all about strength training with a bit of cardio since I still needed to drop weight but also needed to be strong for my sport.”
In the caption, she gave away the entire routine of her workout, “It consisted of – 2 km warm-up on a treadmill followed by a lot of stretches and exercises to loosen my lower back and hips. Since my body was adapting to so much exercise after a while, needed to make sure I stay injury-free.”
“Bench press – 4 sets of 10 (try and increase the weight with every set and decrease reps)
Lat pull downs – 4 sets x 12 reps
Forward moving jumps 4 sets x 12 reps
Glutal kick backs – 4 sets x 12 reps
Dead lifts – I started with 15 kilos 4 sets
Assisted push up – 4 sets of 12
Bodyweight squats – 4 sets of 20
Ski abs – 4 sets of 24
Burpees – 4 sets of 8
Leg press – 4 sets x 6
And finally 20 mins of running cooldown on 9 km. It’s all about muscle memory, when I started I didn’t think I could do any of it but you’ll be amazed how quickly the muscle, body and mind adapt to exercise #mummahustles”
Sania gave birth to her baby boy Izhaan in October last year with husband, Shoaib Malik.
