Preity Zinta's ‘weekend workout before cheat day’

Whether she is in Los Angeles or in Mumbai, the Bollywood diva never skips workout, even on a Sunday and her latest viral video straight from celebrity trainer Yasmin Karachiwala’s fitness studio is enough motivation to get out of bed and hit the grind.

Taking to her social media handle, Preity shared a video that gave fans a glimpse of her robust exercise session.

Lying on a Yoga mat with her hung on a stretch band each, Preity worked on strengthening her core. With her arms outstretched and lying on either side, the actor raised her torso and keeping her lower body off the ground, she pulled down the stretch bands by bending and bringing her knees till her waist and then releasing the pressure to straighten her legs.

Benefits:

A strong core influences the legs and upper body and core muscles play a fundamental role in stabilising and controlling the pelvis and spine. For improving one’s posture, mood, sleeping pattern and boosting energy, core exercises must be performed two to three times a week as they train the muscles in your pelvis, lower back, hips and abdomen.

Strengthening the core helps not only in smoothly performing everyday activities and sports but also helps improve balance and stability and ensures a good posture. A strong core also protects one against injuries.

Anushka Sharma: Worried about hating my own body after pregnancy

Actor-producer Anushka Sharma and her husband Virat Kohli welcomed their first child, Vamika in January this year.

In a recent interview with Grazia, she opened up about embracing body positivity and said, “Only a week ago, I was telling a friend how afraid I was because of this pressure that’s thrust upon women to look a certain way, even before they become mothers, before they get pregnant, and definitely after they’ve had a baby. Despite being somebody who is fairly self-aware, I was worried. I kept thinking – am I going to hate my body?”

The actress added, “I’ve realised that it’s a state of mind, it has nothing to do with how you look,” she said. The actress added, “My body’s not as it used to be; it’s not as toned as it was. And I’m working towards it because I like to be fit. Having said that, I am so much more comfortable in my skin today than I was before, even when I had that perfect body.”

She further stated, “I don’t do that anymore. I click a picture and I post it without obsessively scrutinising how I look. You have to be accepting of the body that’s done something so profound and miraculous for you. I’d never want my daughter to grow up with that sense of lacking that we’re always made to feel as women. Ultimately, it’s all about perspective. The girl who has the ‘perfect’ body can still not feel great while the girl who doesn’t have a body that aligns with societal beauty standards can still, be immensely confident.”
