Fitness expert Yasmin Karachiwala posted an intense workout session video on her Instagram handle. Demonstrating 5 power-packed exercises, Yasmin has combined two different workout techniques to ensure a guaranteed full-body workout. The two types of workout techniques she has combined are HIIT and Pilates. HIIT is high-intensity interval training, which is a form of exercise wherein one performs a series of intense and high-energy exercises followed by a low-intensity recovery period. Pilates is a versatile form of exercise that can be done anywhere. It is a form of low-intensity exercise that improves the fluidity of movement and is good for correct posture alignment, it also strengthens muscles.
