Balancing Warrior poses builds muscular stability by engaging your core and stabiliser muscles, as well as your hamstrings, gluteus, and spine.

While we all want to have the perfect goal-worthy body, developing a strong core and working on all major muscle groups is not an easy task. Shedding light on the same, Kareena Kapoor Khan’s yoga trainer Anshuka Parwani has shared a video giving tips about some Yoga poses to build muscle. Anshuka has shared a video on Instagram showing how one can strengthen the core muscles with the help of warrior poses and make it ‘hardcore’ with the help of weights.

In the video, the yoga trainer is seen performing the exercises with weights. Revealing details about the workout, Anshuka wrote, “The Warrior Pose variations work on all the major muscle groups, especially the arms, shoulders and legs. It helps to stretch and strengthen the glutes and hip flexors, according to her. It also expands the chest and lungs while improving balance, focus, and stability.”

She further wrote about the importance of adding weights to the exercise. She wrote, “Adding weights to the Warrior pose makes the Yoga workout more intense and challenging especially when it comes to building muscles and strength”.

Warrior poses, also known as Virabhadrasana, is a series of yoga poses that represent the mythical warrior Virabhadra, a form of Lord Shiva as per Hindu mythology.

Virabhadrasana is a core asana, a lunging, standing asana that can help you strengthen your legs, spine, and torso.
