Samantha Ruth Prabhu is busy lifting weights: ’75…78…80 kg!’

Samantha Ruth Prabhu is a fitness enthusiast — a glance at her social media handle is proof. But apart from following a regular fitness routine, the The Family Man 2 actor also loves to challenge herself in the gym. As such, Samantha, who trains under the guidance of fitness trainer Junaid Shaikh, recently set massive weight lifting goals.

Taking to Instagram Stories, Samantha posted videos of her lifting 75, 78 and then 80 kgs of weights as part of her weight training routine.

The actor wrote, “Hello 75, I missed you”. In the next post, in which she could be seen lifting 78 kg, Samantha tagged her trainer and wrote: “Hahaha, I wake up everyday not wanting to disappoint you.” Her trainer re-shared the video and said,” Get ready for war”.

The actor then swiftly went on to lift 80 kgs with a lot of focus and pause. Experts suggest it is essential for one to mix workouts for effective results as well as to not let their fitness routine hit a plateau.

Reiterating the same, fitness trainer Shwetambari Shetty had earlier said that one should mix cardio, strength, mobility, flexibility. “I’m all for that and I practice it myself,” she said. She added that it is also essential to lift weights, especially for women.

“Light weights are good, you can initially build some strength, but the same light weights with more reps will help you more with muscular endurance. Muscular strength will come with lifting heavy, progressive overload,” she added.
