As we all know, Hina Khan loves to work out, so not even the lockdown could keep her away from sweating it out! The actress, too, decided to keep fit during the lockdown with some household items.

I know I know, it seems very easy when u look at it.. My reaction was exactly the same when my Pilates instructor @shefalishirke gave me a demo and explained the exercise.. buuttttt trust me guys it’s not that simple..when you lift your feet up in the air and your entire body weight lies on the tips of your toes or max to max on the balls of your feet.. you hv to keep going and continue to pulse, squat, releve and many other forms of barre exercises, without breaking the flow.. #TryItToBelieveIt And Barre is just a prop to balance, you can’t put your weight on the barre.. Rule no 1 🙂 A very effective workout to strengthen and tone your muscles, and definitely improves your posture.. #WorkoutWithHinaKhan #PilatesGirl #Beginner #BodyBalance
