Amitabh Bachchan’s Le Panga has always had a mounting impact on all the Pro-Kabaddi viewers in a way that his voice haspenetrated into the hearts of the sport lovers and eventhosewho are not the regular viewers. ‘Like the enthusiastic viewers, like the dedicated players.’But what comes with the invincible dedication, is the thumping stamina which every player ought to carry within them to hold this game till the end.
Following this, the continuous chants of Kabbadi, play a pivotal role in this game. The raider here holds his breath until he out reaches thedefending team by nudging its player and successfully returning back to his court.During this process the chanting requires the player to hold his breath, and to live up to this, he has to withstand the art of holding breath. Thisis mastered with the help of Pranayama, a meditative form of yoga.
Similarly,the defending team has an equally rigorous role to play as far as running, dodging, and other defensive skillsare concerned.The game demands players to operate at an optimum level in areas that summon; endurance, speed, power, flexibility and agility. Hence the players are highly encouraged to focus on functional movements.
Since Kabaddi is a hard core physical sport, strengthening the core becomes crucial, especially when a raider clashes with a defender. Sudden changes in the course can be executed effectively only with a rock-solid core. In-order to strengthen the core, building substantialstamina is important and to build such stamina,physical and spiritual exercises is required to be performed diligently. Through with physical fitness, a Kabaddi player needs a high calorie diet for about 5 times a day, inclusive of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other workout supplements to keep up with vigorous training sessions.
Hence, we are all inspired by this sport andthe aura of all the Pro Kabbadi players and also, how beautifully they challenge their opponents with jaw dropping stamina and physique, we ought to take some inspiration from them and inculcate few habits that are necessary for our body andcreate a remarkable journey of fitness and sound health.
