Workout In Stairs

Soha never compromises on her fitness and can turn any place into her gym at any time, even if it is the stairs of her house. Soha Ali Khan decided to exercise on the stairs to keep herself fit, "but not in the usual way." Instead, she chose her time on the stairs to work on her core and leg muscles.

While doing the first exercise in the video, Soha can be seen going up the stairs sitting in a squat position. In the next part of the video, Soha can be seen coming down the stairs in the same position while doing other exercises. For the third exercise, Soha is seen setting each of the squat climbs and crawls, before descending the stairs to the plank position.
