She Speaks Out
Calling out her phone's inconsistencies is child's play for Britney Spears. Ever since the #FreeBritney movement took off, Spears has never been afraid to speak out about the treatment she endured from her family and from the conservatorship. She called 911 to report herself as a victim of conservatorship abuse, she testified on the stand, and has posted several revealing Instagram posts detailing her feelings.
She Spends Time Outside
Spears loves to spend time outside, and does a lot of outdoor activities. She has posted several photos of herself spending time in the great outdoors. Spears loves to go hiking, go to the beach, and go horseback riding. "Get moving with these low-risk outdoor activities during the COVID-19 pandemic:
- Walking, running and hiking
- Rollerblading and biking
- Fishing and hunting
- Rock or ice climbing
- Kayaking, canoeing, diving, boating or sailing
- Skiing, including cross-country and downhill skiing
- Ice skating
- Fitness classes, held outside or virtually, that allow distance," suggests the Mayo Clinic.
In addition to being a pop culture icon and a singer, Spears is known for her dance skills. She has been showing off her moves since the beginning of her career, and has tackled some difficult choreography in her live performances. Spears is also known for posting several dance videos in her kitchen on Instagram.
She Does Yoga
One of Spears' favorite ways to exercise is by practicing yoga. She even has an Instagram story highlight entitled "Yoga", which features videos of herself doing different poses. In the first post in the highlight, Spears wrote, "Yoga every darn day!" "The goal of calming and relaxation exercises is to help change the way you perceive a situation and react to it — to help you feel more in control, more confident or secure, and to activate healing processes within the body. Give yoga a try!" says the Cleveland Clinic.
She Strength Trains
Spears is a fan of lifting weights and doing strength training exercises. She posted this video on Instagram of herself doing several different weight training exercises including, lifting hand weights, lifting barbells, and doing kettlebell squats. "Muscle burns more calories at rest than fat explains strength and athletic trainer Tom Iannetta, ATC, CSCS. Lots more! Ten pounds of muscle burns 50 calories at rest, whereas 10 pounds of fat burns 20 calories. This means, long after you've stopped working out — even while lounging by the pool or sleeping — your body is still burning over twice as many calories when you're toned than when you're not," says the Cleveland Clinic.
