While the onset of the festive season makes for a good reason to cheat on your fitness regimen, when you are ready to get back on the wagon, it helps to look to Bollywood’s fittest names for motivation. With minimal equipment needed, these celebrity-loved workouts won’t require a trip to the gym to help you get your fitness mojo back:
Malaika Arora: Utkatasana
A long-time advocate of yoga, Arora’s fitness files are unsurprisingly headlined by this centuries-old practice. Among her list of go-to exercises is utkatasana, or the chair pose, for strengthening the upper body and relieving stress.
Janhvi Kapoor And Sara Ali Khan: Squats
If you are looking to flaunt those toned pins by the beach, grabbing your BFF for a quickie workout can always help. Take notes on the benefits of couple workouts from Kapoor and Ali Khan who teamed up on their Maldives vacay for a series of do-anywhere exercises, including lunges, squats and pushups.
Katrina Kaif: Plyometrics
Haven’t considered adding plyometrics to your workout routine yet? Kaif might just convince you otherwise. Leveraging a variety of jumps, hops and pushups, the exercise form can be helpful for improving physical performance and building muscle power.
Anushka Sharma: Shirshasana
Sharma and her husband, Virat Kohli, are no strangers to the gym, and the actress ensured that she maintained fidelity to her fitness routine during pregnancy as well. Using her husband and a wall for support, the mum-to-be took to Instagram to share the headstand that she managed to pull off a few weeks prior to her delivery.
Bhumi Pednekar: Jump Ropes
The actor’s fitness transformation post the release of Dum Laga Ke Haisha is the stuff of Bollywood lore, and she remained devoted to an active fitness routine during self-isolation with weight training, kettlebell exercises and jump ropes.
