Gul Panag is a fitness enthusiast; the actor earlier had shown us how she did not skip exercise even during the lockdown, while working from home.
The Dor actor keeps sharing glimpses of her workout routine, on Instagram, mostly push-ups. This time too, she shared yet another Instagram video of her doing the exercise.
Gul expressed how people keep asking her which ‘form’ of push-ups she does, each time she posts a video. “The key is to do multiple variations of forms, friends. So in addition to the primary pectorals, one can train biceps, deltoids and trapezius too. So there’s technically no one correct form,” she wrote on Instagram alongside her workout video.
She added that military push-ups are commonly considered the “correct” form.

Narrow stance. 💁🏻♀️ I get a lot of comments on the ‘form’ when I post push up variations. They key is to do multiple variations of forms, friends. So in addition to the primary pectorals, one can train biceps, deltoids and trapezius too. So there’s technically no one correct form. The military push up is what most folks identify as the ‘correct’ form. Professional trainers like @saltchennai @bodyfit_deepavaswani would be happy to help. Have a super day!! #feelitreelit #feelkaro
