Shaitaan actor Jyotika’s fitness consistency is showing

Must read

Shaitaan actor Jyotika has been consistent with her fitness journey. In fact, the Tamil actor’s consistency in the gym is proof that fitness is for all without any age bar. Jyotika too believes in the same as she shared a few snippets from her practice with coach Mahesh Ghanekar of Mahesh Fitness Club.

Fitness is not about the weight you lose, but the life you gain,” she shared. The 45-year-old’s occasional fitness videos have been inspiring many of her fans and followers. One wrote, “Your occasional gym videos is why some of us even hit the gym! Inspiring the crowd right Queen!”, while Soha Ali Khan who also trains with the same coach expressed, “Amazing!!!”

Jyotika can be seen doing mostly bodyweight exercises in the reel. Bodyweight exercises are strength-training exercises that use your own body as resistance, requiring no additional weights or equipment. “These exercises leverage your body’s weight to build muscle, improve flexibility, and enhance overall fitness. Popular examples include push-ups, squats, lunges, and planks,” said fitness expert Garima Goyal.

How do they help?

One advantage of bodyweight exercises is their accessibility – they can be done virtually anywhere, making them ideal for home workouts or when gym equipment is unavailable. Goyal shared that these exercises engage multiple muscle groups, promoting functional strength and endurance.

Push-ups, for instance, target the chest, shoulders, triceps, and core. Squats work the muscles in your legs, especially the quadriceps, hamstrings, and glutes. Lunges engage the same lower-body muscles while also requiring balance and stability. Planks strengthen the core, back, and shoulders.

“Bodyweight exercises are adaptable to various fitness levels. Beginners can start with modified versions of exercises and gradually progress to more challenging variations as they build strength,” said Goyal.

Advanced practitioners can intensify workouts through variations, increasing reps, or incorporating explosive movements. “The versatility of bodyweight exercises makes them suitable for full-body workouts or targeting specific muscle groups. They also contribute to improved body awareness and coordination,” Goyal said.

Additionally, incorporating dynamic movements like burpees or mountain climbers enhances cardiovascular fitness.

What to keep in mind?

To maximise the benefits of bodyweight exercises, focus on proper form. Maintaining good form ensures effective muscle engagement and reduces the risk of injury. “Consistency is key, and you can create a well-rounded routine by combining different exercises to target various muscle groups,” said Goyal.

In summary, bodyweight exercises offer a practical and effective means of improving strength, flexibility, and overall fitness without the need for additional equipment. They are versatile, adaptable to different fitness levels, and contribute to a holistic approach to physical well-being.
