If the events of the last few months have taught us anything, it’s that staying on top of your health consistently is super important. An important part of being healthy includes working out. If you’re someone who gets bored very quickly (we relate!), chances are you won’t end up sticking to your routine for long. The solution? Find something you love doing or switch workouts so you don’t lose enthusiasm, that’s what Bollywood actor Sara Ali Khan does.

 

Sara Ali Khan, who made her debut in 2018 with Kedarnath, has always been very vocal about her struggles with PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) and her weight loss journey. In a previous interview, she talks about working out regularly and her fitness routine is a mix of exercises that tone, burn fat, build endurance and improve flexibility. If you’re on the lookout for a new workout routine or just need some motivation to get fit, here’s a breakdown of the Sara Ali Khan’s fitness regimen…

Pilates

Sara trains with Bollywood’s go-to pilates instructor Namrata Purohit, who works with Kareena Kapoor Khan and Janhvi Kapoor. This workout routine helps build, strengthen and tone muscles while also increasing flexibility. The slow movements pack a punch and it’s still easy enough to be done by people of all ages and fitness levels.

Tabata

These high-intensity workouts are not for the fainthearted. Sara’s four minute-long routine includes 20 seconds for squats, mountain climbers, shoulder taps, jumping jacks and variations of lunges and burpees with a ten second break between each. Tabata is known for its heart rate and metabolism boosting powers and the best part is that you can literally add any eight exercises to the mix.Plus, you can do it anywhere without any equipment too.

Dancing

Don’t be fooled by this seemingly easy workout. Sara’s dance routine may feature sways, spins, twirls and turns, but they’re more than just fun. This full-body cardio workout can boost your mood, improve balance and coordination,  and aid weight management. Like Pilates, dance workouts can be as easy or difficult as you like, making it a perfect option for all the times that a treadmill seems boring.
