Twitter’s not too happy with your home workout videos.

Clench those glutes! Stretch those tendons! Plank! Feel the burn!

The itch to 'create' home workout videos seems to have given Twitter a rash, and a pretty raw one at that. Gone are the good old quarantine days when all one had to worry about was the flood of suddenly aware podcasters casting their boredom into the air.

And Twitter is not happy. Want to know why? Read on.

The Gods Have Spoken

There are two kinds of people on twitter as of today. Those who brook no excuse for a home workout. And those who can't stand it. Especially the videos.

It probably has to the do with the over-the-top enthusiasm and manic energy that are hard to associate with home. It's tough knowing that one needs to work from home. Why make it tougher by adding a workout to the mix?


Nothing Says it Better than a Desi Meme

Memes are alright, but sometimes, celebrities take it up a notch, and end up hitting a self-goal. Like Farah Khan, who shares twitter's collective hate for home workout vidoes, but for unnecessarily altruistic reasons.
