Several studies have linked regular exercise with enhanced immunity. Experts are of the opinion that the COVID-19 infection is more likely to affect those with a compromised immune function. Therefore, it is very important to amp up your body's defence mechanism which will reduce your risk of catching this deadly infection. So, as you spend your days stuck at home amidst the lockdown, make sure that you don't lead a sedentary lifestyle and stick to a workout regime. Celebrity fitness trainer Yasmin Karachiwala has recently shared some super-easy, immune-boosting workouts on her Instagram handle. The best part is, they don't require any gym equipment. All you need is a pair of socks to practise these exercises. Yes, you heard us right here. You are required to wear a pair of socks while hitting these poses as they are quite difficult to perform in shoes. The rubber under your shoes won't let your feet glide as smoothly as the socks would. Also, trying these exercises barefoot can hurt your ankles as they involve sliding and rubbing on the floor. This can increase friction and cause injury. Checkout the post shared by Yasmin:
