Former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen is known for voicing out his opinions boldly. He often presents his views on various topics via social media platform Twitter.
On Saturday, Pietersen posted a picture of himself doing plank workout – an isometric core strength exercise that involves maintaining a position similar to a push-up for the maximum possible time – by the poolside on Twitter. If one sees the scenes in the background, then it looks like the power-hitter seems to be on holiday.
However, Pietersen tweeted that there should be “no rest days,” followed by a hashtag “#PlankWell.”

Fans looked impressed and appreciated the 39-year-old for inspiring the young lads. Former Sri Lanka wicketkeeper-batsman Kumar Sangakkara also responded but in a cheeky way.
The left-handed batter teased Pietersen and said: “Would have been a beautiful pic without you in it @KP24”.
