Oh, we know how hard it is to wake up every morning and get yourself moving. We understand it’s a pandemic and there’s hardly any motivation, but you gotta do what you gotta do, right? That’s probably how fitness icon and popular celeb Mandira Bedi thinks. Every time she uploads a post sharing her workout, her fans go crazy and how. After all, she’s someone we all look up to!
In her recent post, she has proved to us that she needs no chair at all. Yes, Mandira can be seen doing a deep squat with a weight in hand like a medicine ball. Trust us, it’s giving us all the energy to move our bodies and get a physique like her!
Wearing a black halter crop top with a pair of black tights and black sneakers, she performed this workout like an ace. Standing on a yoga mat, Mandira can be seen standing with her feet hip width apart, and has her knees slightly bent. She is holding a medicine ball with both hands in front of her chest. Her balance, focus and agility are worth praising!
Here’s what she has written in the post, ““Did someone just slip the chair out from behind me?! (sic)”.
This is a full-body exercise that targets the quads, glutes, hamstrings, shoulders and triceps. When you hold a medicine ball with both your hands, it adds resistance and engages your core muscles to enhance stability.
Not only does it add more muscle, power, and strength to your body, but it also helps you tone your body and develops coordination.
Here are some benefits of deep squats:
– Increased strength: As mentioned earlier, deep squats work well at building glutes and inner thigh muscles. They are more effective than a standard squat.
– Enhances pelvic stability: Deep squats require more strength and stability in your lumbar spine. In this squat, the joints of the spinal column are the most vulnerable in a squat. Make sure to take care of this aspect, so that you don’t injure yourself.
– Functional movement: Deep squats are a great way to integrate functional movement in your life. It will also help you do other activities more efficiently, including picking up a heavy box from the floor, or preparing to kneel down to the ground.
So, go ahead and try these squats a la Mandira Bedi!
