  1. Dumbbells for fitness

Bollywood yogini Shilpa Shetty is someone we look up to for fitness advice! We’ve always seen her ace even those complex yoga moves, and now she’s lifting weights like a boss. 

Here’s what her recent Instagram post reads, “When you put your heart and mind to something, anything is possible. I’d been aiming to achieve this for a while now, and it has finally happened. It may look easy, but the 20-kg weighted squat is no mean feat! It helps strengthen the glutes, thighs, hamstring, calves, core, knee joints, and lower back. It also helps burn fat. A great start to the day and week.”

  1. Resistance bands for fitness

If you want to take your fitness game to another level, make sure to use resistance bands, just like Bollywood actress Rakul Preet Singh. These bands improve the quality of your exercises, and help to stabilize muscles. Moreover, they are a good alternative to machines, and are lightweight yet effective.
