The actress, through her proactive guidance, seeks to empower her fans to achieve their fitness goals.
Bhagyashree, a dedicated fitness enthusiast, extends her passion beyond personal endeavors. She regularly takes the opportunity to provide her followers with valuable and accessible tips for a well-rounded fitness routine. Lately, her focus has been on optimizing leg workouts. In addition to highlighting common mistakes people make during their daily exercise sessions, she stresses the importance of focusing on the calf muscles.
In one of his videos, Bhagyashree explained, “A leg workout is more than just squats and lunges, which primarily target the quads and hamstrings. You have to target the glutes, calf muscles, and ankles.” He mentioned that most of us need a reminder from our trainer to focus on the calf muscles and not neglect their importance. He reported that these muscles are the ones that “They help propel you forward while walking and running. It also acts like a spring when it jumps. A strong calf muscle can not only protect you from having calf tears, but it will also prevent ankle sprains, Achilles tendonitis, and tendinopathies of the ankle, foot, and even knees.”
While explaining the importance of working out the calf muscles, the actress was seen doing a series of freestyle exercises. Along with that, she also makes use of a leg press. She added that these simple exercises “will improve blood circulation, increasing mobility and flexibility, as well as strengthening.” She urges her followers to include at least a few of these in their daily routines.
In another video, he emphasized the importance of developing balance, coordination, and strength, especially for the elderly who have trouble walking or doing simple movements. He asks his followers to initially focus on these two aspects: being able to stand on one leg without support and getting up from the chair without support.
First, with the help of a wall, stand on one leg and count to 50, then gradually support yourself only with the tips of your fingers. Slowly withdraw your hand and assess how long you can remain upright without support. She mentioned: “This will help them get a sense of balance when walking and thus avoid possible falls.”
Second, while sitting, keep your legs at a 90 degree angle. Next, keeping your torso strong, extend your hands horizontally in front of you and stand up. “This will increase the strength of your core, glutes and quadriceps, providing support to the bone structure of the hip,” he said. Bhagyashree advised starting slowly with 10 counts and then increasing it to 50.
