Andreia Brazier in Two-Piece Workout Gear Shares "Jumping Box Workout"

Here is how she stays so fit.

Andreia Brazier is doing box jumps! The four-time Fitness Model World Champion who is "empowering women to unleash their fullest potential" accompanied a video of her doing them with sage advice: "Train smart! Keep your joints safe! You will always need them specially after 40's ……," she captioned it. What are all the ways she stays in shape?


She is Anti-Bad Carbs

Brazier posted a video that says you should avoid "processed foods, particularly those high in sugar, salt, and unhealthy fats," because "they are addictive and lead to cravings and overeating." She listed more short-term side effects. "Processed foods are often high in refined sugars, unhealthy fats, contributing to weight gain and obesity." Not to mention: "The high sugar content in processed foods contribute to glycation, a process that accelerates aging of the skin and other tissues."


She Does Functional Training

"Who needs heavy lifting when you can train smart?," she captioned one post. "My approach to functional training for longevity is all about shaping and toning your body while keeping it enjoyable and effective! 🏋️‍♀️ Dive into exercises that boost strength, flexibility, balance, and mobility, perfect for everyday activities and injury prevention as you age. From squats to lunges and reaching exercises, we're mimicking daily tasks to keep you agile and independent for years to come. Plus, we've got a stash of core-stabilizing and joint-loving moves to supercharge your overall quality of life!"


She Ups Her Protein

Brazier shared a video of protein ice cream. "Protein is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage and skin. In fact, your hair and nails are comprised mostly of protein," says Piedmont Health. Also: "About half the dietary protein that you consume each day goes into making enzymes, which aids in digesting food, and making new cells and body chemicals."


She Uses Bands

"Exercise bands can be a safer alternative than traditional weights for older adults because they exert less force on your joints and bones. This means that you can use more stimulus to the muscles with less chance of injury. You can easily control the difficulty and resistance of the exercise band," says Village Physio.

How to do Box Jumps? Says the NASM

"Step 1: 

Stand with your feet hip to shoulder width apart and toes pointing straight ahead. Draw in the belly button.

Step 2: 

Rapidly descend to a depth that feels explosive (typically around a quarter squat) while pulling the arms back to the side.

Step 3: 

Quickly and powerfully reverse the pattern and jump up and forward, raising the arms above the head. Land as quietly as possible on the box.

Step 4: 

Once balanced, step down off the box. Maintain posture throughout.

Step 5: 

Repeat for the desired number of repetitions. Avoid knees collapsing inward, back arching or slouching, or uncontrolled head movement."
