World Badminton Champion PV Sindhu: Result of Right Training, Workout, Diet and Discipline

Success and strength both don’t come easy and strength is important for bringing in success. PV Sindhu’s exemplary performance at Badminton World Championship, bagging India its first Gold, left every one speechless. Let’s have a look at her hard training schedule for bringing in this glory!

PV Sindhu created history and pushed India on top of the world by hitting Gold at Badminton World Championship in a dominating performance at Basel, Switzerland. Japan’s Nozomi Okuhara was defeated by her in just 37 minutes with an impressive score of 21-7, 21-7.

She was clearly on the attack mode right from the beginning and didn’t let her form faze at any point of time throughout the game. However, this was not her first face-off with Okuhara, they met inside the court before in 2017 championship and then, Japanese player won the 110 minutes long final, recorded the longest in the tournament’s history. In 2018, Sindhu again lost to Spain’s Carolina Marin. Still Sindhu’s undeterred continuous efforts for improving her performance, have brought her to this well-deserved victory in 2019. The whole nation has applauded her with pride.

If we observe closely, such a breakthrough success brings greater responsibilities and greater efforts with it. The ace shuttler of India now has to focus more on her form and fitness to be able to lift the same accolade in Tokyo Olympics next year. She also can’t assume that her main challengers won’t improve till then, they certainly will. The game and the challenge both will be going a notch up and hence, PV Sindhu has no time to settle. After proving her mettle this time, it has become all the more important for her to keep herself ready for a strong challenge with her fitness and game in place, without losing her great form.

Pusarla Venkata Sindhu was born on July 5, 1995 in Hyderabad. Both her parents were volley-ball players so playing across the net is in her blood. She started playing badminton when she was 8 and later trained with coach Pullela Gopichand, joined his academy. Her coach, however, seemed to know that she will write history with badminton racket in her hand. The medals and glory do not come cheap. PV Sindhu works real hard to train and achieve fitness level which helps her perform consistently.

PV Sindhu’s day starts at 3:30am and she works out for 6-8 hours a day! Her combination workouts for building endurance and strength includes 2 to 3 sets of 400m run per day and 2.5km run every alternate day. The unstoppable shuttler tops it up with 10km run every now and then.

She does 100 push-ups and 200 sit-ups and if we sum it up, it becomes astonishing 600 pushups and 2400 abs exercises in a week to steel plate her core and abdominal muscles! And of course, that is not the end of it because she teams this workout with Yoga, Pranayama, Kapalabhati and Swimming.

Her first lot of training starts at 4:30am and moves till 7am with her coach. It is a usual sight to find her coach and her in shuttling a thousand shots across the net in one single session.
