Emma Raducanu Shares Swimsuit Photo During "Quick Breather"
Emma Raducanu is heating up social media with her latest swimsuit snap. The tennis pro shows off her incredible body in a bathing suit in one of her latest social media posts. "Quick breather in hellas 🧿 – 🔥 in the belly to go now," she captioned the series of Instagram photos. How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Emma Raducanu stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.
She Follows a "Step-By-Step" Approach
Raducanu has a "step by step" approach to fitness, which she detailed in a recent video, so she doesn't overwhelm herself. "When I posted that video, it was literally the first time in the last year (that) I'd done a proper little chunk of training, so I was really, really happy to be starting that," she told TODAY. "Because I honestly hadn't done much, I just needed to start at the beginning and build my foundation up again. It's so important to have a good foundation in everything, and after that, you can add complications and throw some more interesting things in."
Emma makes sure to stay hydrated. "Being on court, I'm sweating so much that staying hydrated is important to me," Raducanu told Today. "It's so good for mental clarity and to feel energetic. Otherwise you feel sluggish. And I know it improves my mood, as well."
She Eats Healthy
Raducanu's favorite food? Sushi. "I could have it all the time," she said. "When I travel it's one of my go-tos. But as a snack I've recently gotten really into fresh coconut water. I love it. And it's ironic because I always hated coconut. It's the one thing I would not have. And now I just love coconut water." She also relies on smoothie bowls and energy balls to fuel her workouts.
She Keeps Herself Motivated
"I think about how good I feel afterward," Emma told Today about how she keeps herself motivated. "For me, nothing beats the satisfaction of a really big training day and feeling really proud of yourself, knowing you've pushed yourself to the max. Right now, I've been doing so much work that sometimes I feel completely uncoordinated toward the end of it, but I know I've pushed myself to that stage, and I accept that once I freshen up, I'll be a lot better. The feeling afterward is what keeps me going." She added: "Every time I get into the gym, it's a win." When she is in the gym she does a lot of weight-lifting and core work.
She Plays Tennis
Tennis is obviously one of Emma's main workouts. According to ACE Fitness it blends together cardio and aerobic exercise, as there is a lot of running around, and hand-eye coordination. "While tennis provides numerous health benefits—improved aerobic fitness and anaerobic endurance, muscular fitness (grip strength and endurance), flexibility, multiple skill parameters (balance, speed, agility and quickness), reactivity, and power—it also is psychologically demanding," they say.
