Alexandra Albu in Two-Piece Workout Gear Shares "Favorite Back Exercises"

The Moldovan-Russian mixed martial artist is a star.

Alexandra Albu is breaking a sweat in her workout gear. In a new social media post the Moldovan-Russian mixed martial artist shows off her amazing body during a gym session. "Some of my favorite back exercises," she writes in the caption of the Instagram video. What exercises does she do and how does the athlete approach diet, fitness, and self care? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 


Rigorous Training Schedule

Alexandra spends a lot of time in the gym. "I train at least ten times a week. It includes MMA, crossfit and cardio training. Sunday is a resting day. I use sports nutrition," she revealed in an Interview.



As for cardio, she enjoys walking. You can find her outdoors on the trails. She also walks on the treadmill. "Evening warmup," she captioned a photo of herself. Going for a daily walk can be a game changer in terms of exercise, especially at a brisk speed. One study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that walking at a brisk pace for about 30 minutes a day led to a reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, dementia and death, compared with walking a similar number of steps but at a slower pace.


Mixed Martial Arts

MMA fighting takes up most of Alexandra's time. Studies confirm that the practice helps with balance, cognitive function and psychological health in addition to weight loss and physical fitness. 



Alexandra also swims laps. Swimming is a good way to get regular aerobic physical activity, according to the CDC. Just two and a half hours per week of aerobic physical activity, such as swimming, bicycling, or running, can decrease the risk of chronic illnesses. In addition to the many physical benefits, there are multiple studies supporting the mental health benefits of swimming as well. 


Strength Training

Alexandra relies on strength training to keep her body strong and fit. In her recent video she does a variety of back exercises. 

  • Lat pulldown
  • Chest supported high row
  • Reverse fly or rear delt fly 
  • Single arm dumbbell row
