Lindsey Vonn in Workout Gear is "Super Pumped" During Workout

Here are her go-to lifestyle habits. 

Lindsey Vonn is showing off her strength – and flat abs – during a workout. In a new social media post the ski champ flaunts her strong and svelte body in a crop top and leggings while executing some impressive moves. "It's time to reset, recharge, and go hard. 💪🏻 Super pumped," she captioned the Instagram slip. In it, she does a variation of lateral lunges with a barbell. How does the athlete stay fit? Celebwell has the details on her lifestyle habits. 


Tailored Training

Lindsey got "a lot leaner" after she retired from skiing with the help of Gunnar Peterson. "I used to do things that were so sport specific, so I had to be bigger," she told New York Post's Alexa magazine. "But everyone is like, 'Oh my God, you're in the best shape of your life.' It's like — yes and no. I'm not training for my sport anymore, I am training to be lean and fit," she said. She has dramatically decreased her body fat. "Different training. Different diet. Crazy!" 


Three to Four Workouts a Week

Lindsey listens to her brain and body when it comes to exercise. "Whatever you like doing is what you should be doing," she told Women's Health. She aims for at least three to four times a week, usually in the mornings. Her workouts are a combo of strength and weight training, using a lot of weighted balls, battle ropes, lifts, squats.

Two Cardio Workouts a Week

Lindsey does cardio at least twice a week. One thing she avoids? Running."I have a doctor's note that says I should never run again in my life, and I'm okay with that," she says. Instead she cycles or surfs. 


Post-Dinner Walks

After dinner, Lindsey tries to go for a walk. "I have to go outside and walk the glucose off with my dog," she says. 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.


Clean, Plant-Based Eating

While Vonn's "ski season" diet included "a lot of protein and carbs," she told People, she had Phil Goglia revamp her diet when she retired. It now focuses on drinking a lot of water, eating clean food, and timing her meals. "I try not to eat too much in the morning before I work out," she told Women's Health. After exercising Lindsey eats "egg white omelets with broccoli, chicken, and pepper, and stuff like that." For lunch, she chooses between chicken or salmon with kale or cabbage. Dinner is also a mix of protein and veggies – like chicken salad with avocado or a zucchini pasta with bolognese meat sauce. Her favorite snacks are almonds, kiwis, and blueberries. She also tries to eat a lot of plant-based foods. "Listen, the kitchen can be intimidating to anyone. But I'm here to tell you: You can do it. And with the new year, let's do it better, together. I've got 14 places to help you start eating more plant-based foods," she captioned a recent post, suggesting the Just Egg cookbook to her followers. "Now, if only every new year's resolution came with a side of omelets."
