Nina Dobrev has been getting creative with her lockdown workouts because she doesn’t have all the correct equipment at home.
The Vampire Diaries actress is a self-confessed fitness fanatic who loves to hit the gym with a personal trainer to maintain her toned physique, but the coronavirus lockdown has forced her to adapt her workout routine and find items around her Los Angeles home to use as weights.
“I’ve definitely been doing a lot of at-home workouts with random things for weight. You can’t go to the gym and I don’t have a home gym. I’m not fancy like that, so I was trying to do squats and things, but I usually do them with weights, which I don’t have. So, I have to get creative,” Nina shared with Allure. “I have this big, really heavy candle that I lift above my shoulders. I grabbed a planter from my backyard that I use to do squats. And then my hip thrusts: I put my puppy on my hips and I was lifting my dog.”
Although the workouts may not be as intense as her ones at the gym, the 31-year-old still feels the benefit of doing exercise routines, running, or cycling.
“It’s not just about looking good but feeling good, and I feel so much better when I’ve blown off some steam,” she stated. “And right now, we all need to be blowing off steam because you feel so trapped. You need to get it out somehow.”
Nina hit headlines on Thursday when she revealed she had turned hairdresser to trim her boyfriend Shaun White’s famous red locks. She was first linked to the Olympic medal-winning snowboarder back in March, when they were spotted on a bike ride together, but confirmed the relationship with her latest Instagram post.
