Shilpa Shetty embraces traditional fitness with 'chakki chalasana'; know its benefits

Bollywood actress and fitness enthusiast Shilpa Shetty Kundra was recently seen grinding flour using the old-school stone grinder or chakki on her Rajasthan trip.

Shilpa Shetty shared the video on Instagram with the caption'

During my recent visit to Rajasthan, when I saw a chakki, I knew I had to do it. And, oh my God! What a workout! No wonder the Chakki Chalasana strengthens the arms, improves digestion, stimulates the reproductive organs, and increases the flexibility of the back & hamstring muscles. (Going back to your roots and working the actual chakki also gives you immense respect for the people who do it regularly'.

Make sure to avoid practising this asana if you have back pain, suffer from slip-disc, and during pregnancy.

Benefits of using traditional chakki

Arm Strength: Grinding flour with a chakki involves repetitive motion that can help strengthen the muscles in the arms, shoulders, and upper body.
Improved Grip Strength:
Holding and turning the chakki handle requires grip strength, which can help improve hand and forearm muscles' strength and endurance.
Core Engagement:
Maintaining balance and stability while grinding with a chakki engages the core muscles, leading to improved core strength and stability.
Calorie Burn:
The physical exertion involved in grinding with a chakki can contribute to burning calories, making it a form of low-intensity exercise.
Functional Movement:
Chakki grinding mimics functional movements like pushing, pulling, and twisting, which are essential for everyday activities and can help improve overall fitness and mobility.
Mindfulness and Relaxation:
Grinding with a chakki can be a meditative activity that promotes mindfulness and relaxation, reducing stress levels and promoting mental well-being.
Cardiovascular Benefits:
While not intense cardio exercise, the repetitive nature of chakki grinding can still provide some cardiovascular benefits by increasing heart rate and circulation.
Low-Impact Exercise:
Chakki grinding is a low-impact exercise, making it suitable for people of all fitness levels and ages, including those with joint pain or mobility issues.
