And even if you manage to shed those extra kilos, it’s quite common to reach a plateau. Well, that’s a bummer for sure! But what if we tell you that you can burn fat, and at the same time, burn 300 calories in no time. Yes, all thanks to the YK300Challenge by none other than celeb fitness instructor, Yasmin Karachiwala.
