I know the weekend is nearing and #FridayFeeling is about to take over but, the entire nation has already been already swept by another wave and hey, we are not complaining. In case you haven’t heard, sports minister Rajyavardhan Rathore‘s fitness challenge that began with him crunching push-ups in work attire has fueled the revolution #HumFitTohIndiaFit and India is getting fitter with every post.
Yesterday, after being tagged, Saina Nehwal posted her video lifting weights. Also, Hrithik Roshan who took to Twitter to share his joy and his bicycle-ride that helps him stay healthy.
In fact, even man in blue, Virat Kohli acknowledged Rathore’s initiative and posted his favourite sweat routine.
