A video of the hottest new workout that's taking Los Angeles by storm has gone viral.

The cardio workout called 'Pound', where you pretend to play the drums, has been developed by two female drummers, Kirsten and Cristina.

It turns drumming into a full-body experience as participants use drumsticks for their workout.



It comprises of cardio, conditioning, strength training with some yoga and pilates.



This video of Americans learning 'Pashto dance' is hilarious!

Watch here:


What these participants aren't aware of though, is that we, South Asians have been "rocking out with our workout" for years now.

So, before you jump on to yet another crazy bandwagon, please take a moment to appreciate Dandiya that has been keeping desi families fit for years.



All you have to do is wait for the next desi wedding to get in the groove.

Trust a Pakistani paper to take credit for anything Indian which becomes popular in the West as South Asian. Dandiya is a purely Gujarati dance form. Who knows tomorrow they might claim Holi to be theirs too.
