Fitness - Bollywood Style!

11:48:00 am

Ok, if you think this is another long winded article about the various, ever changing (and questionable) fitness routines of bollywood stars, you couldn’t be more wrong. I, for one, don’t believe all the stuff they say in their interviews. Ok, parts of it may be true, but I can’t help feeling that they are leaving out all the gory details and making it appear that effortless is really just a façade. Anyway, leave that, I’m just talking about how they can help us attain fitter bodies – through their songs!!

I mean, aren’t there some songs that just make you feel like jumping up and dancing away to glory!! And isn’t dance one of the best cardio workouts around? Well, there you are!! A perfect, enjoyable workout to do at home; completely equipment free, trainer free, everything free!! So, to make things a wee bit easier for you guys, I compiled a list of some of the ‘dhamakedaar’ songs I think would be perfect to work up a sweat :-). Here they are:

1. Sadi Gali from Tanu Weds Manu

2. Rang De Basanti from Rang De Basanti

3. Ainvayi Ainvayi from Band Baaja Baaraat

4. Dhan Te Nan from Kaminey

5. Sheila Ki Jawani from Tees Maar Khan

6. Pappu Can’t Dance Saala from Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na

7. It’s the Time to Disco from Kal Ho Na Ho

8. Koi Kahe from Dil Chahta Hai

9. Desi Girl from Dostana

There you go! More than 40 minutes of energy boosting, mood boosting cardio!! Do it alone, or have your buddies over.

What do you think of my list? Tell me about your fav cardio workout too :-).
