Messi's Wife Antonela Roccuzzo Shares Swimsuit Photo in "Veranito Modo"
Antonela Roccuzzo is heating up social media in the middle of winter – in her swimsuit. In a recent social media snap Lionel Messi's model wife shows off her amazing body in a hot pink bathing suit. "Summer mode," she captioned the Instagram Stories image. How does the 35-year-old WAG maintain her model body? Celebwell rounded up her top lifestyle habits.
"Over the years, sport has become my escape valve; it is my time to disconnect and focus solely on myself. I like everything that encompasses the universe of sport; also the fact that sportswear has become a street style trend is wonderful," Antonela told Elle Spain.
Antonela is a big fan of cycling. "Honestly, I didn't train much with the bike, but what I liked most about this model is the possibility of training and doing classes with other users. You really feel like you are in a live class sharing the experience with more people. It's incredible the feeling of being able to do a spinning class while at home," she told Elle. 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.
"I try to take care of my diet by following a balanced diet; eating everything and allowing myself to indulge from time to time. In my case, if the diet is very restrictive or eliminates certain foods, I will not be able to maintain it over time, " Antonela told Elle.
Healthy Eating Habits
According to Antonela, it's not just what you eat but the habits surrounding eating. "I am not a fitness expert; but over time I have acquired certain habits that I believe are important; eating before and after each workout," she told Elle. Another one is "always hydrating, but especially when I am doing physical activity," she added.
Another exercise habit that Antonela encourages? She says to "stretch before and after; maintain good posture, do not push your body to the limit or to excessive workouts." "Stretching keeps the muscles flexible, strong, and healthy, and we need that flexibility to maintain a range of motion in the joints," says Harvard Health. "Without it, the muscles shorten and become tight. Then, when you call on the muscles for activity, they are weak and unable to extend all the way. That puts you at risk for joint pain, strains, and muscle damage."
