Beth Phoenix in Two-Piece Workout Gear Does "Joint Mobility" Exercises

“Joint mobility before moving big weights."

Beth Phoenix is getting her body ready for weightlifting in her exercise clothes. In a new social media post the WWE hall of famer shows off her strong body as she does some functional training exercises. "Joint mobility before moving big weights," she writes, demonstrating a pistol squat. How does she approach diet, fitness, and self-care? Here is everything you need to know about her workout routine. 



Beth is a fan of CrossFit, which "has its foundations in strength training and uses many of the very same motions and exercises to take their members to the next level," she wrote for  Perez Hilton. "All shapes and sizes participate and are pushing their bodies to new heights of personal best. There are even CrossFit competitions for those that enjoy the thrill of leaving others in the dust," she added, calling it "a great, accessible, affordable option that will help you meet your fitness goals."


A "Healthy, Clean, Natural Diet"

Beth's healthy living plan starts with "eating a healthy, clean, natural diet," she told WWE. She even grows her own produce. "I love plants. I LOVE roses. I love eating veggies and fruit straight from the garden. My little barn shed is my oasis. A place to think, pray, dream and play. If you need me, I'll be in the dirt," she captioned a post


Weight Lifting

According to Beth, "women shouldn't be intimidated to get into the gym to lift some weights," she told WWE. "I know some women are afraid that if they weight train they are going to gain bulk and get really muscular and heavy." What are the benefits? "As far as weight training, it strengthens your bones, gives you healthy muscles and protects your joints," she adds.



Beth maintains that "as far as mental health goes, I think taking a break is important, too." This is why she doesn't overdo it at the gym. "Over-training can be a problem. It can definitely set you back farther than it can set you ahead. So definitely take that time to relax, kick your feet up and bask in the glow of all your hard work."



Beth also does yoga. "Here's a quick sequence for incorporating a classic yoga pose into your @gopureplank routine," she writes in a post. Why should you do yoga? "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," says Harvard Health. "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."
