The coronavirus pandemic has made all of us more cautious about our health. From having kadha every day to doing some yoga, we all are trying our best to keep our immunity up and tight. But sometimes, doing the same exercise routine every day can be boring and monotonous. Also, having the same exercise routine doesn’t motivate you to work out after some time.
Thus, the best and the easiest way to maintain your daily physical activity is to keep changing your workout and find ways to make it more interesting.
Talking about hatke workout, Hina Khan’s new barre pilates workout on Instagram is a perfect example. In one of her recent Instagram posts, the actor was seen doing a barre pilate fusion and acing it with grace.
Here is Hina Khan’s video doing the barre pilate workout
Barre pilates fusion
The combination targets core strength and flexibility. The fusion is also called isometric contraction where you have to hold challenging poses, like balancing at one leg. The workout is a combination of non-aerobic pilates moves and aerobic barre moves. The moves are small but intense and help you burn those calories.
The workout improves postures, helps tone the body and get a sculpted core. It’s a full-body workout which also incorporates some elements of strength conditioning.
For those who don’t know about barre workout
Just like pilates, barre workout includes high-repetition bodyweight exercises that require you to hold the muscles of your legs, abs, glutes and arm for an extended time. This improves your cardio strength and your ability to maintain a posture.
When you balance your body on one leg and externally rotate the hips, it technically moves all the muscles of your body. This helps in making you more mindful about your body’s movement.
Tips for beginners
The workout is a little intense for muscles but gentle for joints. It puts less pressure on the spine, tendons and ligaments, which reduce your chance of injury. The workout improves your posture tremendously and also increases the metabolic rate. Increased metabolic rate helps you burn calories even after the workout is over. This makes the workout a great choice for people who are trying to shed those extra kilos.
Things you need to do this fusion workout
Sticky socks are recommended and you need a barre. It’s recommended not to practice barefoot and wear ballet slippers, jazz shoes or dance sneakers.
You can try taking an online class to help you understand the basics better.
