Dua depends on short but intense workout sessions, revealing to Vogue that she completes 15-minute high-intensity interval training workouts that include plenty of jumping jacks, mountain climbers, and burpees, whenever she can squeeze them in. "It's high-intensity interval training, but it's so quick, it's over before it's even started," she said.

She Tries to Workout in the AM

To ensure she gets a workout in, she tries to slip in a workout at the start of the day. "If I've got a really early call time, I don't want to be waking up hours before I need to go and do a workout. So a high-intensity workout, shower, breakfast, and I'm on my way," she told Urban List

She Prioritizes Abs

Dua's washboard abs didn't form on their own. She told Urban List that she works hard to achieve them. "I think different variations of crunches like bicycle crunches are good. Leg raises are also great unless my back hurts. Planks are good although almost certainly my least favourite!" she revealed. 

She Is Really Into Boxing

To keep exercise fun Dua mixes up her workouts, and you will often find her doing yoga, Pilates, spinning, or boxing, which is one of her absolute go-tos. "Whatever it is, I try to change it up every day to keep things interesting," she told Urban List. "I like that it's definitely a full body workout. Since starting boxing, I've probably been in the best shape ever. It's also a great stress reliever." 

She Doesn't Like to Workout Alone

While one Instagram Video workout seems to be a solo effort, she confessed to Urban List that she is more effective when she trains with others. "I would always be that person who made a new year's resolution, get a gym membership and then show up twice in the first week of January and then never go again," she said. "Now I love workout classes or working with a trainer. I feel like I'm pretty useless on my own, so I prefer being around other people working out with me."

She Stays Away From Sugar

While Dua hasn't divulged many of her dietary secrets, she tries to "stay as healthy as possible whenever I can," she told Urban List. For example, she tries to stay away from sugar, instead fueling up on bananas and cashew butter. "I'm never one to stop myself having treats, I do love naughty treats. But I try and limit it to days when I'm not as busy, because if I do eat a doughnut it usually puts me in a food coma!"
