Also known as bar hold, human flag is an exercise in which the body is lifted parallel to the ground and supported by a vertical bar such that the arms and body are in a straight line. This exercise, naturally, requires a lot of upper body strength.

How does it benefit? According to onnit.com, this exercise ensures great grip strength and also works the shoulders, obliques and quadratus lumborum.

In another Instagram post, Sonu also shared pictures of him doing standing cable chest press. This helps you to be in control and move slowly. Cable chest press strengthens the core muscles, and improves balance and stability, according to Healthline.
