When it comes to fitness, Disha Patani does not shy away from pushing her limits.
The Malang actor had earlier shown us how to ace a flip. This time, she posted throwback videos of her doing squats but with barbell. And the weight she carried goes on to show her immense physical strength.
“#throwback to the times when I was strong…75kg 1 rep, 2nd set is 80kg 1 rep full range squat,” she captioned the videos. Watch:
A barbell back squat involves carrying the barbell on your shoulder as you squat. It emphasises on building lower-body muscle groups and overall strength. It adds size and strength to the quadriceps, glutes and hamstrings, and also improves back and core strength, according to bodybuilding.com.
How to do barbell back squat
* Hold the barbell on either side and rest it on your rear shoulder muscles.
* Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, with toes slightly pointing out.
* Carrying the barbell, squat until your hip crease is below the knee. Keep your weight on your heels as you drive back up.
If you are a beginner, attempt the exercise only under the supervision of an expert.
