This post is not just a shout out to all the mard hazrat who lift and spend hours at the gym each day, then go for a game later on (Xbox or the playground, you pick) this is also for all those khawateen who want to stay fit but are shy to ask their bhai jaans or abba jaans to take them to the gym and working out at home maybe just isn’t for them because the taanay young ladies get from their own mothers sometimes, if not khaalas and phuppiyan, would leave them with no better option to keep themselves fit. Got a playground at college/university? Got a basketball rink? A membership to Islamabad club or Gym-Khana or anything?
Then you certainly do have some more ways to stay healthy and workout, maybe even tone some belly fat and lose a few calories each day. Yes, a couple of sports can actually be very beneficial for you in terms of losing weight. Here’s how:
Go For A Swim!
Swimming is a very healthy activity, even if a few people might not consider it as a full-fledged sport. It really works well on your muscles, their toning, strength, and flexibility as each stroke that you make require muscle-work and physical effort. Hence, if you are looking forward to losing weight, make sure you are swimming for longer intervals of time and be quick in between strokes. The best part is, swimming is never age specific, therefore it doesn’t matter how old you are you can always do it.
Be A Desi Wild-Cat
Speaking of basketball, who else comes to memory better than Zac Efron from High School Musical does? Here’s for the ladies who have a basketball court at college and yet just haven’t made the best use out of it yet. The sport is equally interesting for both genders and no, you don’t have to be a six feet tall person to play it. The jumps and all the run really contributes to the muscle building. No wonder all those basketball players have those dolay if not fat elsewhere.
If you really plan to stick to this one, do invest in it, otherwise, the money isn’t too much for buying a bicycle. Cycling is especially beneficial for those individuals who want toned legs, calves and hip muscles. This is another thing that works equally good for all ages.
If you are one of the paindu folks, do note that this isn’t a drink we are referring to here, it’s a sport played similar to tennis. If you are searching for a sport that’s more of a cardio routine, squash should be number one on your list for sure! You can also replace it with badminton. A really good pick to burn those calories.
Run, Run, Run!
Going for a run isn’t as simple as a fast version of jogging, mind you. This is sprinting that we are talking about and yes, it would certainly require more than just your gali and mohallay ki sarkain to practice. Hence, if you have a big playing field at school or access to a stadium nearby, go for it. With sprinting, you would definitely feel the muscle burn and realize its working its way into getting rid of those calories.
