Shakira’s pre-Super Bowl workout routine

Before the big performance, Shakira cut out dairy and sugar, eating a restrictive diet made mostly of vegetables.  With her body fueled, Shakira was ready to undergo dancing training.

Shakira’s trainer and friend, Anna Kaiser, spoke with Marie Claire to discuss Shakira’s 2020 Super Bowl performance preparations.

Anna revealed, “The focus of this workout is cardio endurance. I want her to push through with few breaks for the entire 90 minutes.”

The intense workout saw Shakira alternating between strength training and cardio.

However, Shakira still managed to have fun while exercising.

Anna continued, “She will make some of the movements her own, adding flair with her hips. Even though it’s super intense, she’s still having fun!”

The Super Bowl kicks off at 6:30/5:30c on CBS, NFL Network, and ESPN.
