Bella Thorne Shows Off Toned Tummy in Swimsuit "Bday Look"
Bella Thorne is staying warm this winter – by heating things up in her swimsuit. In a new social media post the actress shows off her amazing body in a bathing suit outfit. "Throwing it back to this bday look as I'm in the snow covered in jackets," she captioned the Instagram photos. "Beautiful," commented one of her followers. "You look stunningly gorgeous and sexy as always, Bella," added another. How does the young star stay fit? Here is everything we know about her diet and exercise routine.
Her Brother Trains Her
Bella's trainer is a family member. "I wouldn't say I'm in my best shape at the moment. My brother is my trainer," she told Allure. She added to Hollywood Life that she and her family exercises together, calling fitness "a family affair."
She Does Circuit Training and Weight Lifting
Bella's workout is based on strength and weight training. "[My brother] has got me doing circuit training and weightlifting—I never do cardio. A lot of people think that cardio burns off weight better than weightlifting does…but weightlifting works your muscles, getting them toned while losing fat," she told Allure.
She Does Yoga to Help Her Sleep
Bella maintains that yoga is helpful in "helping her fall asleep easier at night," while also helping her feel like she "can do more in the day." Harvard Health explains that yoga is a great workout, according to science. "Researchers found that people who practiced yoga for at least 30 minutes once a week for at least four years, gained less weight during middle adulthood," they said. "People who were overweight actually lost weight. Overall, those who practiced yoga had lower body mass indexes (BMIs) compared with those who did not practice yoga. Researchers attributed this to mindfulness. Mindful eating can lead to a more positive relationship with food and eating."
She Eats Clean
Bella fills her plate with veggies, fruit, protein, smoothies, and even rice and pasta. "Rice, black beans, pasta, fruit for my smoothies, veggies and some protein," are things you will find in her kitchen, she told Hollywood Life. She added to Wired that she also incorporates plant-based foods into her diet. "I'm not, I'm so sorry guys. I really want to be though," she said when asked if she was a vegan, adding that she eats "a lot of vegan food but man, bacon. Oh, gets me every time."
She Does Reformer Pilates
Bella also does reformer pilates. "Getting back on that #grind #pilates and it feels good," she captioned a post. Why is pilates a good workout? According to the Mayo Clinic there are lots of benefits to the workout, as it "strengthens the body's inner core while increasing its flexibility resulting in improved overall health. It can also promote longer, leaner muscles, injury prevention, relief from stress and back pain, enhanced athletic performance, and heightened mind-body awareness.
She Stretches Before and After Workouts
"I always stretch before my workout and after, to make the muscles grow longer and slimmer #workouttip #thirstythursday #thankfulthursday," Bella informed her followers in a 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."
She Takes SoulCycle Classes
Bella also enjoys taking SoulCycle classes. The Cleveland Clinic explains that biking, a low-impact aerobic exercise, is great for building muscle, improving strength and flexibility, and improving balance. It can also boost mental health and help other health conditions, including arthritis.
