Abbey Lee shared her exercise routine. According to her, a sports bra is a must for workout to avoid aches. Dancing and yoga are her regular exercises. She said to InStyle magazine –
“I mix up my exercise routine with yoga, dancing and running. I used to run outside in NYC, but I have bad knees and it’s too hard running on concrete. So I have resorted to treadmills. The most important thing is a good sports bra, otherwise it hurts.”
