One might think that wearing a saree is uncomfortable and might restrict movement, However, some women have been proving this wrong by working out in a saree! Recently, a video of a saree-clad woman doing pushups by lifting a gas cylinder went viral.
And now, a woman in Pune has been grabbing people’s attention with her workout videos where she is seen weight-training in a saree!
Meet Dr Sharvari Inamdar, who has become an online sensation after videos of her working out at the gym in a saree went viral. According to India Today, she can do pushups, pull-ups, and barbell lifting in a saree effortlessly.
Dr Sharvari believes that a saree shouldn’t be a barrier for women.
“Frankly speaking, women do not wear sarees every day. It is not comfortable for everyone to wear a saree. But as an Indian woman, when we celebrate, we purposefully celebrate it with traditional Indian wear. So, wearing a saree should not be a barrier for any household woman to look after her body. So, that is why I am celebrating womanhood,” she said.
She goes on to suggest weight training for women, adding that it helps in keeping a person emotionally and physically strong.
