Earlier, Gigi wasn’t into too much working out and hitting the gym. She preferred going out for walks on the hills and dance to keep herself fit. However, she has made changes to her lifestyle and has increased frequency of her workout sessions.
When she feels that she is gathering fat around her lower tummy, she prefers to perform leg raises while lying on the floor. She usually performs this exercise at the night with repetitions somewhere around 50 to 100. The other exercise she is obsessed about is squats.
To make sure that she is going low enough, she stands right next to the couch and lightly touches her butt on it, before springing up.
Also, she always keeps a bottle of water in her refrigerator so that when she is craving for her favorite diet coke, she can go for water, instead. She makes sure that she is chugging a lot of water throughout the day. Plus, she drinks a lot of healthy and nutritious juices and smoothies.
