Mumbai and Delhi are still experiencing an upsurge in Covid cases, with many celebs in different cities having suffered due to the situation. Although COVID has taken a toll on everyone, whether they themselves or members of their families have suffered, there are certain fitness and wellness rules they need to adhere to post-COVID. Celebrities have been concerned with fitness in the aftermath of COVID, and we spoke to a few of them to find out how their future fitness plans are drafted and how serious they are. Here are the details they have revealed to us.
Khabhi Khabhi Itefaq Sey actress Delnaaz Irani: Due to my immediate commitment to work, I do not have time for exercise. On the other hand, whenever I have some spare time on set, I do my asanas, a lot of breathing exercises, yoga, and I walk as much as possible. We have a little garden to walk. My strength is restored by walking for 30 to 45 minutes. I continuously take my multi-vitamins and vitamin C to regain all the energy and strength and to build up immunity. I also drink green tea, kaada, tulsi chai and ginger tea. Even on the set, they are providing with kaada. Post-CoVID, one has to be careful about a few precautions. It’s just work and going for the shot. As I do not wish to consume any extra energy, I am being cautious about things now.
Tara From Sitara actor Eijaz Khan: I am still in the process of figuring out how to start workout. I have realised that COVID affects the lungs and the cardiovascular system and affects almost every part of your body. My first concern is that, since I’ve heard a lot of people suffering heart attacks. I have started doing walks for 40 minutes a day. The COVID fatigue has really hit hard. Sometimes I cannot get out of bed till 1 pm, I force myself out. After any walk or anything, I try running or slow jogging because my knees also hurt. The next day I cannot work out. There is a COVID fog as you are really confused about the timings and planning of the day. I have started putting 30-40 minutes into cardiovascular workouts. My body started hurting when I went to the gym once and did very light circuit training. All my friends who had COVID in the past keep advising me that it affects you for 2-3 months and after that you would be able to do all those things that you did. I was told that COVID fatigue is real and you will have days when you will feel great, there will be days when you will not be able to move. All I can say is that doing cardiovascular workout really helps.
Vidrohi actor Sharad Malhotra: Post-COVID, energy levels have dropped. Regaining my immunity is a must. Besides being a fitness freak, I have to look good as well. I’ve started walking briskly and going to the gym as well. I am going to the gym three days a week instead of six. Also I do five minutes of pranayam every day. In addition, I drink warm water and eat well. In addition, I am drinking kaada while on set. I also play with my dog sometimes, which gives me a lot of positive energy. I also avoid overexerting myself.
