When she started modeling, Karina "went back and forth between being a model and just needing to go out and run. Running was my sense of identity – running is my coffee," she told Muscle & Fitness. 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. 


Strength Training and HIIT

"It's a misconception that I live at the gym. I work out anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour and a half at least every other day. I start off with weights and then do HIIT," she told the publication. She does full body workouts all the time instead of training upper and lower body separately. "My mantra is to do something active every day because of the high that it makes me feel." There is lots of research backing up the benefits of HIIT workouts, including body fat reduction, improved cardiovascular function, and mental health. It is also time effective.


Portion Control


Karina has a healthy approach to diet. "I don't count calories. I believe in portion control, cooking for myself, and eating simple ingredients like potatoes, chicken, broccoli, avocados, and eggs," she told Muscle & Fitness. 



She Feels Sexiest When She Is "Sweaty"

"I feel sexiest not necessarily when I'm strong, because what is strong? I feel sexiest when I'm sweaty. Sweaty represents hard work. When I'm drenched in sweat, I know I killed it," Karina says. 



In her latest post, Karina reveals that she also does yoga. "It's always been important to my practice to play with the yin/yang of strength + flexibility. Exercising both powerful masculine + divine feminine energy (that lives within each of us) creates balance in the bod to help us be our happiest, sexiest self," she writes. There is a laundry list of reasons to do yoga, explains Harvard Health. "Researchers found that people who practiced yoga for at least 30 minutes once a week for at least four years, gained less weight during middle adulthood," they said. "People who were overweight actually lost weight. Overall, those who practiced yoga had lower body mass indexes (BMIs) compared with those who did not practice yoga. Researchers attributed this to mindfulness. Mindful eating can lead to a more positive relationship with food and eating."
