Fitness Athlete Avernell Modest Shares Swimsuit Photo With Bronze Medal
Avernell Modest is showing off her medal-winning swimsuit body. In a recent social media post the bodybuilder flaunts her incredibly fit figure in a bathing suit after placing third at Amateur Olympa. "We took home 🥉at the prestigious @amateurolympia . Thank you to everyone for the continuous support, success is not final because there's always work to be done !," she captioned the post. How does she maintain her fit figure? Celebwell rounded up her top health habits.
She Is Dedicated
Staying in shape is literally Avernell's job. "Right off my flight, after 4 meals , straight to the training with my Coach @jl_ganot ….. then threw on my bikini and heels to a**es my posing and shape . Only those who know how it feels to pose right after training," she captioned a post.
She Gets Her Steps In
Avvernell works hard in the gym but also makes sure to get her steps in. "What I saw on my walk yesterday." she captioned a post. Going for a daily walk can be a game changer in terms of exercise, especially at a brisk speed. One study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that walking at a brisk pace for about 30 minutes a day led to a reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, dementia and death, compared with walking a similar number of steps but at a slower pace.
Avernell also swims, another great cardio workout, according to the CDC. Just two and a half hours per week of aerobic physical activity, such as swimming, bicycling, or running, can decrease the risk of chronic illnesses. In addition to the many physical benefits, there are multiple studies supporting the mental health benefits of swimming as well.
If you want glutes and a butt like Avernell, you are going to have to squat for it. "Listen ! Your knees shouldn't be collapsing in at no time when doing a banded AND non-banded squat . It's more easily noticeable when using a band. No need to rush the set either … I know .. IT BURNS 🥵….. GET YOUR SET IN PROPERLY , Rest, then go again," she instructs in a video.
You can also find Avernell taking dance cardio classes. Dancing is a great workout for many reasons. Not only does it build strength and promote flexibility, but helps you lose weight and even promotes cardiovascular function. A 2016 study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine determined that people who engaged in moderate-intensity dancing were 46 percent less likely to develop heart disease or die from it than non-dancers. In comparison, moderate-intensity walkers were just 25 percent less likely to suffer heart health issues.
She Does Push Ups
Another tried and true exercise that helps Avernell keep her arms strong? Push ups. "Because what's more sexy than a girl in a bikini doing push ups ???" she captioned a post.
