EXERCISE: 15-minute workouts
The Albanian songstress made headlines when she revealed in an interview that she only does 15 minutes of exercise a day... and it works.
"It's high-intensive interval training, but it's so quick, it's over before it's even started!" she explained.
On the workout agenda are high-intensity moves designed to elicit maximum results by raising the heart rate, including mountain climbers, jumping jacks and burpees.
When she's not time-poor on tour, Lipa turns to boxing, a workout also favoured by stars like Gigi Hadid and Gisele Bündchen.
"I love boxing in my spare time. I like doing it for fitness I like doing it just to kinda clear my mind. I really enjoy it. I like that it's definitely a full body workout. Since starting boxing I've probably been in the best shape ever. It's also a great stress reliever."
EXERCISE: A healthy mix
"When I have a tiny bit more time on my side I love mixing up lots of different training, finding different workouts in whatever city I'm in, whether it's yoga, Pilates, boxing or spinning," the singer has said.
"Whatever it is, I try to change it up every day to keep things interesting. When you're on a tour bus, every day and every place is different, so you never know what you're going to find. That's always one way to keep it interesting."
EXERCISES: Core exercises are king
To maintain those famous abs, Lipa opts for exercises that target her core. "I think different variations of crunches like bicycle crunches are good. Leg raises are also great unless my back hurts. Planks are good although almost certainly my least favourite!" she has said.
DIET: The occasional treat
DIET: Pre-workout snacks
To stay fuelled up for her workouts and on-stage performances, Lipa snacks on healthy, high-protein natural foods. Her go-to pre-exercise snack? "Bananas and cashew butter."
DIET: Home cooking
