Hunger Games Star Willow Shields in Two-Piece Workout Gear Does "My First V3 Outside"

"Skimmer in Hueco Tanks finishing like a beached whale."

Willow Shields is rock climbing in two-piece workout gear. In a new social media post the Hunger Games star shows off her amazing body and her strength while climbing outdoors. "My first V3 outside: Skimmer in Hueco Tanks finishing like a beached whale. Also upon research I believe I started this climb wrong but will be back to try again 🫶🏻✨ #climbing #beginnerclimber #huecotanks," she captioned the post.



Willow is a reader. "Here and there and everywhere ✨Drop your books recommendations below pls," she captioned a post. One Harvard study published in Social Science & Medicine found that people who read books regularly had a 20% lower risk of dying over the next 12 years compared with people who weren't readers or who read periodicals. 



Willow loves to read books. "A reminder to go on a solo adventure," she captioned a post from White Sands National Park. 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.



Willow has been an avid hiker long before she started rock climbing. Here she is hiking in Yosemite. According to the National Parks Service, the physical benefits of hiking include:

  • Building stronger muscles and bones
  • Improving your sense of balance
  • Improving your heart health
  • Decreasing the risk of certain respiratory problems



Willow enjoys going running. 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. 


Rock Climbing

In her latest post, Willow shows off her rock climbing skills. Willow started rock climbing and it has transformed her body. One of the benefits? She has seriously strong arms. According to the NHS, rock climbing boasts mental and physical health benefits. It can improve stamina while working multiple muscle groups at once. "Climbing involves concentration and thought, as well as physical exercise, which helps to keep you focused, clear your mind of outside worries, and build your confidence and self-esteem," they add. "This may help to alleviate the symptoms of some mental health problems."
