Serena Williams shot to stardom with tennis and Wimbledon. The lady is a super player when it comes to badminton and she has been winning hearts since ages. One of the greatest athletes of all times, she has been breastfeeding, pregnancy and all that, still she is stronger than always.
Her delivery story is far from being smooth. This is what she shared about her delivery.
‘I had a really tough delivery, and I had to have multiple surgeries and almost didn’t make it, to be honest,’
‘I remember I couldn’t even walk to my mailbox, so it’s definitely not normal for me to be in a Wimbledon final. So I’m taking everything as it is and just enjoying every moment.’
Just after 10 months of her giving birth to her cute daughter, the lady was back into her game. She has spent a brilliant 300 weeks at the top spot and the time during which she took a break has forced her to come down at 181.
Serena Williams Workout Routine
She is never a big fan of working out in the gym. The lady has only followed a very strict diet plan which has been designed and made exclusively for her by her close pal and wedding officiator Mackie Shilstone.
Most she begins with her 10-minute warm-up session and then proceeds to cardio. She usually does Zumba but also combines the same with cycling, running and even swimming.
Then she directly heads to strength training exercises.
