It's an emotionally trying time for Padma Lakshmi. After writing a raw op-ed for The New York Times about her own sexual assault, the Bravo's Top Chef judge is taking some time to soothe her soul in whatever way she can. One way of finding comfort is tucking into a delicious plate of pasta; another of Padma's self-soothing techniques involves strapping on some boxing gloves.
In an October 1 Instagram post, Padma posted a short video of herself furiously hitting a punching bag, then sparring in the ring. "Light sparring is good for the soul," she wrote in her caption. And based on the expert moves she shows in the video, it's clear that Padma has some experience in this type of endorphin-boosting workout.
