Alex Puccio in Two-Piece Workout Gear Shares "Secrets to a Good Session"

“What’s the SECRET to a good session and not getting injured?? It’s actually quite Simple!!”

Alex Puccio is revealing a secret to training without injury – in her workout clothes. In a new social media post the climber shows off her amazing body while letting her followers in on a secret. "What's the SECRET to a good session and not getting injured?? It's actually quite Simple!!" she captioned the post. What is her trick and what other ways does she approach diet, fitness, and self-care? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 


Cardio to Eat Sweets

"I'm a person that LOVES my sweet foods and can NEVER give them up. You can ask anyone that really knows me well and sees me all the time. And since I'm not really willing to change my diet that much I decided to do more cardio," Alex revealed in a Facebook post. "I know I don't eat perfect with all the sugar and sweets and deserts I consume just about every day, but I love it and i don't want to give it up! So this is why I do a good bit of cardio."


Minimal Gluten and Dairy


"The 2 main things I do for my 'diet' are I don't eat much dairy or gluten, except In my desserts. Dairy really hurts my stomach and makes me feel sick and I don't digest gluten very well. But cake and other desserts just taste better with those things in so I make a huge exception just about every day for that," Alex revealed in the same post.



Running is a part of Alex's routine. "I was running 4-5 days a week every week for about a year. I would only run 3-4 miles every time and sometimes faster and some slower depending on if it was a recovery run or not," she revealed on Facebook. According to the Mayo Clinic, running is great for cardiovascular health, muscle building, and weight loss. "For every mile run, the average person will burn approximately 100 calories," they say. 



Alex loves hiking to "decompress and go outside and have fun," she told Training Beta. "That's exactly what I did. I just started going outside to Rocky Mountain National Park and all over Colorado with my boyfriend, Joel Zerr, and just didn't care how long a boulder problem took me. Didn't go to the gym to train for them. I just went outside everyday, hiking everyday, and basically everyday I surprised myself by climbing something."



Alex reveals in her recent post that stretching is key for avoiding injury. "And we do it EVERY TIME!!! 💪🏻Yes you can still always have an accident or get injured, there are a lot of variables involved, BUT we can minimize the chances for sure!!! Honestly, I wish I learned this a LONG TIME AGO! Maybe I could have prevented some of my injuries from years ago?!" she wrote in her post. "Stretching keeps the muscles flexible, strong, and healthy, and we need that flexibility to maintain a range of motion in the joints," says Harvard Health. "Without it, the muscles shorten and become tight. Then, when you call on the muscles for activity, they are weak and unable to extend all the way. That puts you at risk for joint pain, strains, and muscle damage."
