Ex-WWE Star Maryse in Workout Gear is "Back in the Gym!!!"

"So now…we are making it an everyday rendezvous?"

Maryse is getting back into fitness in her workout clothes. In a new social media post the former WWE and Total Divas star shows off her amazing body in a mirror selfie. "Back in the gym!!! Not being able to be in it for so many months!!! So now…we are making it an everyday rendezvous?" she captioned the Instagram Stories image. How does she approach diet, fitness, and self-care? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 


Strength Training

Maryse's main form of fitness is strength training. "Women are sometimes afraid they'll get bulky and big, but that's not true," she explained. "You'll get curves and just be lean, very lean. That's the trick. Doing cardio is not really going to help in that way," she told E! News. According to the Mayo Clinic, strength and weight training help reduce body fat, preserve and increase lean muscle mass, and burn calories more efficiently. Strength training may also help you:

  • Develop strong bones
  • Manage your weight
  • Enhance your quality of life
  • Manage chronic conditions
  • Sharpen your thinking skills


High Intensity Interval Training

"My favorite thing to do is HIIT workouts, or high interval intensity workouts," Maryse told E! News. "I like to do that because I'm not really a cardio person. HIIT is basically working your entire body, and it's burning [calories] for about eight to 12 hours after you work out," she continued. "A HITT workout is basically three to four complexes and a complex is about three exercises that you can do about three to four times with no rest. Your heart rate is always up and you're lifting weights." There is lots of research backing up the benefits of HIIT workouts, including body fat reduction, improved cardiovascular function, and mental health. It is also time effective. 


80 Percent Diet

You can't outrun a bad diet, says Maryse. "Eating is 80 percent of everything," she told E! News. "Working out for an hour is really easy, but the rest of the day is 23 hours and that's the hardest part."


Cheat Meals

Maryse eats healthy most of the time. However, she is always down for a cheat meal. "I love chocolate cake," she told E! News. "I'm French. I also love cheese and bread, so I could just live on that. 


A High Protein Diet

Maryse's diet is mostly "high protein, low carbs and low fats." According to clinical trials, consuming more protein than the recommended dietary allowance not only reduces body weight (BW), but also enhances body composition by decreasing fat mass while preserving fat-free mass (FFM) in both low-calorie and standard-calorie diets.
