If you’ve been keeping up with Bollywood’s fitness domain, Sara Ali Khan’s fitness camaraderie with Ananya Panday is hard to miss and the latest to join her is none other than Janhvi Kapoor. Where health and wellness are paramount, actors are always on the lookout for innovative ways to enhance their monotonous workout routines to maintain mental and physical well-being.
Embracing the trend, many turn to pilates, known for its focus on controlled movements and holistic body engagement. Sara Ali Khan and Janhvi Kapoor teamed up for a workout session that transcended the conventional under celebrity trainer Namrata Purohit, delving into the realm of friction training. Adding diversity to their workout repertoire, they incorporated a dynamic variation of squats involving a sideward leg movement, half push-ups, and a pilates variation of mountain climbers.
According to Purohit, this workout takes a comprehensive approach, activating not only their entire bodies but also targeting the fascia—a vital connective tissue responsible for mobility and flexibility. The open and flowing movement of this exercise is a powerhouse for strengthening the thigh muscles. Beyond mere toning, it promotes resilience and flexibility, essential attributes for actors navigating physically demanding roles.
Incorporating these dynamic techniques into their workout arsenal, Sara Ali Khan and Janhvi Kapoor exemplify how a diverse and strategic approach to exercise can unlock not only physical strength but also mental resilience. So, whether you’re looking to tone your muscles, or simply find an outlet for self-expression, Pilates can be your ultimate fitness companion.
Building glutes and thigh muscles
This exercise goes beyond targeting the glutes, sculpting, and firming the backside. The sideward motion engages different muscle groups, ensuring a comprehensive lower-body workout. This technique not only enhances aesthetics but also contributes to improved functional strength for day-to-day activities.
Improved upper body strength and endurance
This multitasker exercise, not only targets the back and arm muscles but also enhances core stability. The controlled yet dynamic movement creates a synergy between various muscle groups, promoting overall strength and toning.
Slow and controlled core intensity
Unlike the conventional high-intensity version, this form intensively focuses on engaging the core and leg muscles. The deliberate pace adds a refreshing twist to a popular exercise, providing a unique challenge for both body and mind. The controlled intensity enhances core stability and fosters a mind-body connection, crucial elements for a well-rounded fitness routine.
