Lexi Thompson in Workout Gear Shares "Hotel Gym Workout"

“Hotel gym workout,” she captioned the mirror selfie.

Lexi Thompson is getting her sweat on – at a hotel. In a new social media post the golfer shows off her amazing body during a grueling workout. "Hotel gym workout," she captioned the mirror selfie. How does the athlete approach health and wellness? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits – including her diet and workout routine. 



Lexi spends most of her time on the golf course, perfecting her swing. Golf's health benefits are extensive, including mind, body, and even lifespan, according to a comprehensive review published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine. Benefits include improved longevity, decreased risk of developing heart disease or suffering a stroke, good mental health, and improved strength and balance.


Sled Pulling


During an interview with Holly Sonders and Gary Williams, Lexi discussed her love-hate relationship with a particular exercise. "Sled pulling is pretty hard," she confessed. "That is something interesting, and my trainer puts a good amount of weight on the sled," she added. "It is very difficult, but I love it. I love training and just knowing I can improve on my fitness is very important to me."


Core Strength

Lexi also explained that she improved her core strength in the gym, which helped a lot with her golf swing and self-esteem. "I feel a lot better about myself," she said. 


Special Diet Before Events

When she is playing a golf event, Lexi follows a special diet, which includes a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, protein bars, and beef jerky. She revealed that Tiger Woods suggested it to keep her calories and energy levels up.


Intense Exercise Sessions at the Gym

In one of her workout videos, Lexi revealed her intense routine. It included squats with a kettlebell. "Feet shoulder width apart, feet a little toed out. Ensure good posture — header, chest out. And squeeze at the top," she said in the clip. Then she did 10 single-leg deadlifts per side using a kettlebell. "Good posture, keep your core tight and really focus on your balance," she said. Next up, hip rotation using a band. "Really focus on keeping your balance as you rotate that hip. Keep it nice and slow and controlled," she suggested. She ends the video with a monster walk.
