    L.A.’s Hottest New “Work Out” Is Basically Dandiya


    This is dandiya. It’s a traditional folk dance from Gujarat and is performed ubiquitously during the festival of Navratri. It’s said to have been invented by Lord Krishna.

    This is "Pound", an air-drumming workout that's "taking L.A. by storm" and was invented by two female drummers, Kirsten and Cristina.

    It uses specially designed instruments called "Ripstix" or as the South Asian world would say – DANDIYAS. They're called fucking dandiyas.

    They even have a super tagline.

    *Slow claps in garba*

    A lot of people are not pleased and have been calling out PoundFit on a video uploaded by Insider yesterday.

    First ghee and now dandiya? #stopwhitepeople2k16
