This video of Rakul Preet lifting 170 pounds is all the motivation you need to hit the gym
Actress Rakul Preet is quite the fitness freak. From lifting weights to trying pilates and yoga, she has done it all. The star also keeps her fans updated with videos and photos from her fitness sessions.
The latest is a video of her doing a deadlift of 170 pounds. She wrote: “Keep pushing your limits. Cos you are limitless. My heaviest deadlift till date.. 170 pounds and then drop to 140 The form needs to be better but then this was the 5th set ..thankuu @smackjil -we have 3 more months to reach my goal @kunalgir #stronggirlsaresexy.”
In the video, Rakul can be seen deadlifting 170 pounds (77 kg) to improve her core strength and muscle strength. The diva is seen in a black sports bra with grey training tights with a sleek ponytail.
In an exclusive interview with Indulge, Rakul said, “Ever since I told a friend that I was working out at the airport gym, when I had a six-hour layover, the word that I am fitness freak seems to have been doing the rounds. I had a long flight, and it felt nice to stretch myself that day, but that episode really went viral. For me, working out is like meditation. On the contrary, I can never meditate. I am an activity monster — I need to be kept engaged or I will bug you. I love to hustle, move my body, stretch, twist and turn and use my energy. As regular Vinyasa Yoga looked too static for me, I tried Aerial Yoga (yoga done using a swath of fabric suspended from the ceiling, used as workout equipment). I find that it stretches and relaxes me. You see, I always love to stretch myself thin.”
Rakul was last seen in De De Pyaar De with Ajay Devgn and Tabu and Manmadhudu 2.
