Nikhat Zareen is a born fighter and glimpses of this attitude were quite visible in her childhood days. She was 12 years old when she came home having a bruised black eye after a defeat in one of the early boxing games in her career. “How did she beat me up so badly? I will return the favor the next time”, these were her words after that particular defeat and since then she has been quite successful in battering the opponent inside the boxing ring. In this blog, we will look at Nikhat Zareen’s Workout and Diet Plan.

The boxing star, Nikhat Zareen was born on 14 June 1996 in Nizamabad city of Telangana. Boxing was in her blood and she was trained by her father for her first year. Then she was inducted into the Sports Authority of India (SAI) in Vishakhapatnam to train under Dronacharya awardee, IV Rao in 2009. Just a year into training at SAI, she won golden best boxer at the Erode Nationals in 2010 and since then she has never looked back.

Boxing is a brutal game. You must have power, strength, mobility, speed, and flexibility in your body to take a blow and give it back. That’s where training and workout come into the picture. According to her, without speed other attributes are not very useful, as only speed can surprise the opponent. Hence to improve speed, she trains with a ‘speed bag’. This is a speed-intensity workout and a high-intensity workout with speed punches.

After speed bag training, she moves on to punching the bag. She generally does interval training with a punching bag. Nikhat hit punches with the highest intensity for 15 seconds, takes 15 seconds of rest, and repeats the process several times.

This type of training helps to convert strength into power which is the most crucial element that can knock the opponent out.

This is then followed by a cardio session. In boxing, you need the endurance to keep the intensity level high for a longer duration. That’s where cardio helps out a boxer. Nikhat generally does 30 seconds or 1-minute interval training with cardio. In total, she trains for 10-12 rounds of such cardio.

Skipping ropes is also a major part of her daily workout routine.

Nikhat Zareen’s Diet Plan

Nikhat always mentions that it is hard to follow a diet plan if you hail from Hyderabad and that’s where her discipline comes to the rescue. Nikhat starts to shed weight through her workout around 2 months before the actual game. You cannot shed weight suddenly and even if you do, it will damage the body in multiple ways.

Hence to lose weight in a systematic manner, Nikhat focuses on a protein-rich diet and generally targets losing 200-300 grams per day. Obviously, this amount varies depending on how many days are remaining for the competition.
