Gracyanne Barbosa is a successful fitness model. Naturally, she shows of her toned figure on Instagram. She also shares her favorite workouts on her page. Barbosa hit the gym with a friend recently, and she filmed her friend working out. She captioned the video, "I force her to train, but I guarantee the best angle LOL (stories)." How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Gracyanne Barbosa stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Works Her Legs

Barbosa doesn't skip leg day. She and a friend shared this lower body workout video on Instagram. In it, they are seen doing squats, ankle squats, and the Malasana pose. Piedmont states that having a strong lower body is important. "Having strong glutes, quadriceps, hamstrings and calf muscles gives your body a strong foundation and can: Tone your lower body muscles. Boost your metabolism as you increase muscle mass. Give you a higher calorie burn as you train larger muscle groups. Improve your balance. Strengthen your bones. Reduce joint pain. Reduce your risk of injury, particularly in your back and knees."


She Pole Dances

Barbosa likes to pole dance. She shares a lot of pole dance videos on Instagram. Life Hack states that pole dancing has a lot of benefits, including making someone more limber. "People often forget the importance of joint mobility and flexibility. As you become more limber you will have fewer problems like back pain, a stiff neck and muscle soreness. You will also minimize the risk of sprains and will be able to move more freely."


She Cooks

Barbosa likes to cook. She shared this video on Instagram of herself making apple cheesecake with berries. Barbosa captioned the post, "Base: almond flour + coconut oil, I won't say the exact amount because it depends on the size of the shape, mix the two, until it forms a small machine and it will shape the shape, then put in the preheated oven for 8 min just to make it firm. Stuffing – I decided to make two flavors: -200g strawberry Jelly + 1 shot of whey + 1 cup zero yoghurt + sweetener to taste + 1/2 pack of colorless jelly. -200g apple jelly with cinnamon + 1 cup zero yoghurt + sweetener to taste + 1/2 pack colorless jelly. Mix each one in a container, until it becomes very homogeneous, place on top of the batter (it has to be cold), I put it divided because I thought it was nice lol fruits on top to decorate, take it in the fridge for 2/3 hours and you're ready this wonder."


She Works Her Core

Barbosa has an amazing core, and she makes sure to do core workouts. She shared this video on Instagram of herself doing hanging crunches. Barbosa captioned the post, "If I'm happy: workout. If I'm sad: workout twice. And you?" The Mayo Clinic states that core workouts have a lot of benefits. "Core exercises train the muscles in your core to work in harmony. This leads to better balance and steadiness, also called stability. Stability is important whether you're on the playing field or doing regular activities. In fact, most sports and other physical activities depend on stable core muscles."


She Goes To The Gym With Others

Going to the gym with someone else, like Barbosa did in her Instagram post, has a lot of health benefits. The Whittier YMCA states, "Maintaining motivation is crucial when it comes to fitness. Working out with a friend creates a sense of accountability. Having a reliable partner waiting for you at the gym or park encourages consistency and eliminates the temptation to skip a session. When you witness your workout buddy's dedication and commitment, it spurs you on to match their enthusiasm. Sharing goals and cheering each other's progress creates a positive and competitive environment that drives both of you to push harder and achieve more."
