1

She Works Her Back

Yim shares a lot of her favorite workouts on Instagram. She makes sure to work her back. Yim shared this video of herself doing pulldowns, captioning it, "No off days." Harvard Health states that back workouts are important. "Strengthening the muscles in the back can help you improve postural problems. Back muscle training may also help protect you from injury and back pain. As with other muscles, the muscles surrounding your spine can weaken with age or lack of exercise, making you more prone to injury and pain.'

She Worked Hard

Yim opened up about her career to RondaRousey.com. She says that she makes sure to work hard to get where she is. "It taught me everything from just the business aspect of it—from how to conduct myself—along with just the hustle. How I was in the indies, I worked every weekend, but I also still had a nine to five job from Monday through Friday. So it was different working and knowing how to balance… Not 'real life,' just because being in the ring is real life. but how to balance a desk job along with having to travel every weekend and getting to network and using social media as a networking tool."

She Gets Sun

Yim shares photos from the beach. "A healthy dose of sun can be an easy way to reap many health benefits. The recommended amount of daily sun exposure will depend on multiple factors. In general, getting 10-15 minutes of sun three times a week is adequate. If you plan to be out in the sun for extended amounts of time, make sure you are staying hydrated, protecting your body with sunscreen, your eyes with sunglasses and wearing a hat," says North Oaks.
