While the politician has been tight-lipped about her weight loss journey, she shared a picture on Instagram Stories giving us a peek into her fitness routine.
In the picture, she can be seen weight training in the gym. “Koshish jaari hai,” she wrote.
Here’s how weight training can help.
Weight training has immense benefits, ranging from fat loss to reduced back pain and better bone density.
“For years, women have been misinformed that weight training is not for them and they should only focus on cardio exercises. However, while cardio is important one must also focus on weight training for overall health,” Sameeran Chetia, certified fitness trainer, K11 Academy of Fitness Sciences said earlier.
As per Chetia, a well-designed cardio and strength training program can help in achieving a well-toned body. Many studies have shown that with strength training one is able to burn more fat and put on lean muscle than by just doing cardio.
Some of the best strength training workouts one can incorporate in their daily life are:
*Shoulder press with dumbbells
*Alternate dumbbell rows
*Chest press with dumbbells
