Heptathlete Lauryn Davey Shares Swimsuit Photo from the North Sea
Lauryn Davey is heating up the North Sea in her swimsuit. In one of her latest social media posts the Heptathlete flaunts her famous figure in a bathing suit while vacationing in Nordsjö. "Never been so jealous of a fish in a lake before," commented one of her followers. "No.1 girl crush," added another. How does the British athlete maintain her fit physique? Celebwell rounded up some of her top lifestyle habits.
A heptathlete is someone who competes in seven different sports. One of the basic ways Lauryn trains is by running – a lot. According to the Mayo Clinic, running is great for cardiovascular health, muscle building, and weight loss. "For every mile run, the average person will burn approximately 100 calories," they say.
She Soaks in the Hot Tub
Lauryn knows how to recover from heavy training – a soak in the hot tub. "Off SZN," she captioned a photo of herself indulging in a little heat therapy.
She Lifts Weights
Strength and weight training is also an important part of Lauryn's regiment. Each week adults need 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity and 2 days of muscle-strengthening activity, according to the current Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans.
Lauryn loves riding bikes. The Cleveland Clinic explains that biking, a low-impact aerobic exercise, is great for building muscle, improving strength and flexibility, and improving balance. It can also boost mental health and help other health conditions, including arthritis.
When Lauryn is on vacation she keeps her body moving. One of her go-to activities is paddleboarding. "It's not as easy as it looks," she captioned a post. The American Council on Exercise (ACE) agrees that paddle boarding is great for the core and also a great form of cardio. The water sport can burn an average of 385 calories for a 140 pound male and 436 for a female the same size, per a study conducted by Arizona State University.
Finally, Lauryn loves to swim, a good way to get regular aerobic physical activity, 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.
