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.
