Frankie Bridge Shares Swimsuit Photo Saying "Hi England"
Frankie Bridge is best known for being a member of the hit girl group, The Saturdays. Bridge has also appeared on shows like Strictly Come Dancing and I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! She recently shared some stunning photos on her Instagram stories. In one, she sunbathed in a black swimsuit, captioning it, "Yes England." In the other, she wore a yellow swimsuit top and red bottom. How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Frankie Bridge stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.
She Does Exercises Correctly
Bridge shared some of her diet and exercise secrets with Cosmopolitan. She says that she worked with a trainer to not only help her get in shape, but to also help her learn how to do things correctly. "When I first started working out with my new trainer, he was like 'show me how you do a squat', so I did, and he said 'yeah, that's not gonna do anything'. I think it's important to learn how to do things properly. I've been doing squats and all sorts with a trainer before, and I've never realised that I've been doing them wrong. I could've done 100 squats the wrong way and been like 'yeah, it aches a bit'. Where as I can do five with this trainer and be in agony. I would say to learn how to do the moves properly, it makes a big difference."
She Eats Healthy
Bridge makes sure to eat healthy, and shared some of her favorite meals with Cosmopolitan. "I'm quite a boring eater. I go through phases. I've got an obsession with granola and yoghurt with raspberries and blueberries so I'll have that in the morning with a cup of tea. For lunch, I'll have salad with tuna, and then for dinner I'll have brown rice and quinoa and some sort of fish or meat, and some kale. I'm obsessed with kale."
She Weight Trains
One thing Bridge does to stay in shape is weight train. "Up until the new year, I was doing pilates and boxing throughout the week, whereas now I've started weight training," she told Cosmopolitan. "A lot of people I knew did it and I've heard a lot about it burning fat and being good for toning, so I've started doing that with a new trainer. I really like it. My bum and my legs just weren't changing before I started weight training, but now I have noticed a difference [from squatting with free weights] quite quickly."
She Indulges Once In A While
While Bridge eats healthy, she also doesn't like to restrict herself too much. "I try to stick to having a 'cheat day'," she told Cosmopolitan. I believe in them. I don't think you should restrict yourself completely. It's hard at social stuff, but that's where you have to be flexible. Don't set yourself a specific cheat day if your plans for the week don't fit in with it. If you know you're going out for dinner one night, that can be your cheat evening, and then try and be good the rest of the week."
She Loves Hot Yoga
Bridge revealed to Women's Health that she and her husband like to do hot yoga together. "I mean it's hard work – and so sweaty it's unreal – but it's also calm. I couldn't just sit there and meditate all morning – that's not really my thing. It's not good for me to give my brain too much space to think."
