Undoubtedly, Namrata has designed this amazing high-intensity interval training (HIIT) routine for the ladies, which will help them shed those holiday pounds in no time.
Get Ready to Sweat with Sara and Janhvi: The 7-Step Routine
1. Leg raise roll
This exercise targets your core and upper body, including your shoulders, arms, and traps. By lifting their bodies while performing the exercise, both Sara and Janhvi create more contraction in their core region. Give it a try and do 25 leg rolls clockwise and anti-clockwise.
2. Side bends
As the name suggests, this exercise targets your sides. By opening their legs wide, placing their hands on their heads, and bending side to side, they work out their oblique muscles, maximizing the stretch. Placing your hands on your head helps you hold the pose longer and target the muscles even better. Aim for 25 side bends in both directions.
3. Dynamic lunges
Dynamic lunges are a fantastic compound exercise that combines cardio and muscle training. Remember to keep your core engaged, avoid extending your leg too much, and maintain a steady breathing pattern. Complete 25 dynamic lunges with each leg.
4. Leg raise roll, again!
Back to the core with the leg raise roll. Repeat the first move by performing 25 rolls in both directions.
Take a look at the post, and you’ll notice Sara and Janhvi on all fours with resistance bands around their calves, intensifying the exercise. This advanced version of kickbacks specifically targets your glutes. Aim for 15 kickbacks with each leg.
6. Forward bends
Forward bends are highly effective for engaging your core and glutes. When you bend forward, your core muscles contract, and when you lift your leg backward, your glute muscles come into play. The dumbbells that Sara and Janhvi hold help them maintain balance and add extra contraction to the movement. Perform 15 forward bends with each leg.
7. One-leg squat
As you can see from Sara’s determined face, one-leg squats are no easy feat. Balancing themselves with the help of each other, they make this move more challenging and targeted. One-leg squats increase the impact on your leg muscles since your entire weight rests on just one foot. If you don’t have a workout buddy like Sara and Janhvi, you can use a wall or a table for support. Aim for at least 15 reps with each leg.
