If you follow Alia Bhatt on Instagram, you would know how committed she is to sweating out daily. Be it cardio, yoga, pilates, cycling or swimming…she does it all. Here’s what you can learn from her to get fitter.
1. Mix it up
Any fitness enthusiast will agree that doing the same set of exercises daily can get boring. So the trick is to add as much variety as you can. If you don’t want to do cardio, try Pilates, or put on your swimsuit and hit the pool or focus on strength training. Switching your focus between cardio and strength training, would help you build stronger muscles and also rev up your metabolism to burn fat faster.
2. Find a workout buddy[instagram]https://www.instagram.com/p/CHsOP5MMmUB/?utm_source=ig_embed&utm_campaign=loading[/instagram]
There’s no denying the benefits of working out with a buddy. Kareena Kapoor Khan and Amrita Arora, Sara Ali Khan and Janhvi Kapoor all know how important it is to have a workout buddy if you want to stay motivated and not fall off the track. Alia does the same too, she makes her sessions fun by working out with her BFFs.
3. Sign up for online sessions[instagram]https://www.instagram.com/p/B_FXyZ3lU0x/?utm_source=ig_embed&utm_campaign=loading[/instagram]
In the current scenario, it maybe difficult to go to a gym. However, it can’t be an excuse for not working out. Sign up for an online session with a trainer for an hour every day. But do remember to sign up with an expert, blindly following YouTube videos may cause more harm than good.
4. Be consistent[instagram]https://www.instagram.com/p/BqR_hobgeq_/?utm_source=ig_embed&utm_campaign=loading[/instagram]
Even when you are travelling or have had a hectic day at work, try and pack in some form of exercise. It needn’t be strenuous, you can try some stretching, yoga or brisk walking wherever you are.
5. Make notes of your progress
When you click your photos at every stage of your fitness journey, you would be motivated to try harder. Experts have often said that results could be the biggest motivator.
