As a boxer, Vaishnavi faces many problems related to the government not providing new equipment when the old ones have been worn out. Maintaining a diet has also played a major role in keeping her fit as well a proper exercise. Meditation is the key to a proper boxing match. Vaishnavi usually takes deep breaths before a match or even when she is scared are tries to control that energy into the ring and even helps in thought processing. A loss is got over by training in the areas which she lacked before or during a match for example, if the defence was less, the coach trains her to be equally balanced. The toughest movement for her is to think what her opponent is going to do. It’s those split – decisions that count for everything.
