Yoga and Pilates are her go-to fitness activities
Whether she's shooting outdoors or is on a vacation, Kapoor is very consistent with her yoga sessions. "We have been practicing kriyas (internal cleansing techniques), asanas (hatha yoga), restorative yoga (rested with props), pranayama, and guided relaxation/shavasana," she captioned an Instagram post tagging her yoga trainer Nishta Bijlani. With Pilates, she works around a strong core which keeps her body balanced and stable.
She is an advocate of 'Shunya' which keeps her spiritual
For Kapoor, mental health is also something that plays an important role in her overall fitness. "Shunya, as in Zero. And for me, the ultimate spiritual achievement! The state of Shunya is returning to our original state where we are full of positivity, purity, and goodness! That's the power of Shunya." she captioned one of her Instagram posts.

The actor is clear about warm-up and pre/post-workout snacks
Kapoor starts with a good warm-up session before her workout. She even posts about its importance on her Instagram. As for her meals, "I try to eat 1.5 hours before my workout and eat whatever I feel like but mainly some food that will give me energy. And post-workout, I try to eat as much protein and vegetables as I can," she shared.
The 'Baaghi' actor is quite disciplined about her diet
Kapoor loves to savor home-cooked food even when she is shooting. For breakfast, she eats poha, upma, or some egg whites along with some fresh fruit juice. Her lunch scenes feature two-three chapatis, dal, and some green veggies. She enjoys dal, grilled fish, fish curry, and whole wheat bread with butter peanuts/brown rice for dinner and finishes the meal by 6-7 pm.
