Bianca Belair In Workout Gear Is "Going To WrestleMania"

Here are her training tips.

WWE star Bianca Belair's training routine is hardcore—she doesn't skip a workout, even when she's on the road. And now the star has even more motivation to be strong and ready for the ring. Belair, 34, shared a video of herself wearing black shorts and a tank top, doing weights and cardio exercises at the gym. "It took a minute… But we are going to wrESTleMania. Been waiting for this moment for 2+years ever since Damage Control stepped into that ring with me at SummerSlam and I been fighting for my life ever since! It's time to end this! Stay ready so you don't have to get ready!" she captioned the post. Here's how Belair trains, eats, and stays strong on the inside and out.


No Fear Under Pressure

Belair thrives under pressure, and has always been keen to prove herself. "When you ask for an opportunity, actually I don't ask for opportunities because I feel like whatever comes my way is what I deserve and I don't have to ask for it, but I've been sitting here proving myself over and over, and I finally got that spotlight," she told Muscle & Fitness. "A lot of people were like, 'Who is this girl?', 'Where has she been hidden?' or 'Oh, she's so good now'. It's not now, I've always been good, it's just now you finally know who I am and now you are seeing what I've been saying [all along]. For me, pressure is just a part of the game, and part of competition. I've been competing since I was a little girl so I am used to it, I'm always ready for whatever comes my way."


Everything In Moderation

Belair has an "everything in moderation" approach to diet after not having the healthiest relationship with food in the past. "I feel like every woman has this moment where they have to figure out what works for them," she told Women's Health. "For me, I don't do diets because I find myself becoming a little obsessive… Everything in moderation. I don't believe in overindulging or in depriving myself of anything. I've had to learn that food is not my enemy. I work out once or twice a day and I'm lifting super heavy weights. I need fuel to keep going."


Pre-Fight Preparation

Belair may only be in the ring for 25 minutes but she and the other fighters have been preparing for hours ahead of time. "Once I get to the venue, it's nonstop movement from there: preparing to get in the ring, stretching, warming up, doing my own hair and makeup, putting finishing touches on my gear," she told Balance the Grind. "I like to listen to gospel music before I perform because I feel like it's just something that really gets you in a good mood. I love Kirk Franklin. It gets me pumped up, and it gives me a lot of confidence."


Mental Health Support


Belair is careful to rest when she needs to, to prevent burnout. "Mental health is everything," she told Essence. "I think everybody focuses so much on the physical. You go in the gym and you're training and you're working hard and you're sore. You feel good about yourself. But mental health is just as important. For me, my mental health is a lot of resting because I am constantly on the go."


Intense Training Routine

Belair's training and exercise routine is unsurprisingly intense. "I'm in the gym usually Tuesday through Friday doing cardio training, CrossFit-type of training," she told Balance the Grind. "And then Saturday through Tuesday is when I'm traveling and having wrestling matches inside the ring. But on those traveling days, I'm still in the gym at eight o'clock in the morning. Then I'm at the show, having a wrestling match at eight o'clock at night, and then I'm driving to the next show until about 2 a.m. And then I'm doing it all over again the next day. So it's a grind, not just mentally, but physically as well."
