She Strength Trains

As you can see in her Instagram post, Brooke is seen using weights. The Mayo Clinic states that strength training has a lot of health benefits. "Strength training may enhance your quality of life and improve your ability to do everyday activities. Strength training can also protect your joints from injury. Building muscle also can contribute to better balance and may reduce your risk of falls. This can help you maintain independence as you age."


She Does Squats

In her Instagram video, Brooke does squats. Allina Health states that squats are very effective. "The squat is one of the all-around best exercises to do for your lower body. It strengthens and tones muscles in your thighs, butt and calves and improves posture, balance, flexibility and inner core strength. Squatting also improves bone mineral density to keep your bones strong."


She Does Donkey Kicks

As you can see in her Instagram post, Brooke does donkey kicks. According to Inspire USA Foundation, they have a lot of health benefits. "This particular exercise provides a myriad of benefits not solely reserved for athletic or rehabilitation purposes, with a variety of other positive effects being imparted from the cable machine assisted lower body exercise, such as improved flexibility apart from its muscular hypertrophy and neuromuscular adaptation benefits."


She Paddleboards

Brooke spends a lot of time outside. One thing she likes to do is go paddleboarding. She shared these photos on Instagram of herself paddleboarding with a friend and a dog. Brooke captioned the post, "I love any time I can get w/ Lacy! We are both so busy but when we get together we just pick back up!"


She Hikes

Another outdoor workout Brooke likes to do is going for hikes. She shared these hiking photos on Instagram of herself on Crowders Mountain. The National Parks Service states that hiking has a lot of benefits. "Hiking is one of the best ways to get exercise. No matter what type of trail you find yourself on, hiking is a great whole-body workout—from head to toe and everything in between. Check out all of these physical benefits of hiking: Building stronger muscles and bones. Improving your sense of balance. Improving your heart health. Decreasing the risk of certain respiratory problems."
