    As the second wave of Covid-19 swept through the country with devastating effects, doctors across the state began recommending proning exercises as a good way to enhance oxygen levels in Covid positive patients, both in home isolation and in hospitals.

    Pronining is a medically approved exercise that was heavily pushed during the COVID19 outbreak by the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. In this exercise, patients are made to lie on their stomachs which increases their oxygen levels.

    2. Pullover Exercise

    In 2021, the pullover exercise remained a trending topic. Workouts grew popular during the months-long lockdown, with the pullover exercise being one of the most popular.

    The dumbbell pullover is a free weights exercise that primarily focuses the lats, but also targets the chest, shoulders, and triceps to a lesser extent.

    Dumbbells and a flat bench are the only pieces of dumbbell pullover equipment you need for this exercise. You can try a variety of dumbbell pullover variations that may require different types of dumbbell pullover equipment or even no equipment at all.

    3. Deadlift Exercise

    To get a fit body, deadlifts became a popular trend. Deadlifts are a multi-joint exercise that engages multiple muscle groups at the same time. This workout helps in growing muscle of legs, back, and other posterior chain muscles while also puts a lot of strain on the central nervous system. Because the deadlift has so many moving pieces, weaving them together takes more concentration than you might imagine for a move with such a basic finish.
