Turns out the Coolie No 1 actor was exercising despite a shoulder injury. He recently posted a throwback video on Instagram in which he is seen exercising with weights.
In the video, Varun is seen doing push-ups by balancing his arms on a dumbbell while putting pressure on the left side. He captioned the video, “…had a shoulder injury from the time of shooting Street Dancer. Never healed properly but now after proper rehab, rest, training and yoga I can start putting weight on it and maybe get back to these exercises.”
Push-ups are beneficial in building upper body strength, according to Healthline. They work on the triceps, pectoral muscles and shoulders. They further help strengthen the lower back and core by engaging the abdominal muscles.
Push-ups are done in the plank position where the body is raised and lowered using both the arms. Several celebrities, from Nick Jonas to Hardik Pandya and Virat Kohli have shown us how to do variations of push-ups.
