Camila Cabello Gets In Bikini Workout While on Vacation
Camila Cabello has been enjoying a vacation with her family in the tropics. However, instead of just spending all day lounging on the beach, throwing down drinks, and feasting on food, she is staying active. On Wednesday the Havana singer shared a photo of her clad in a bikini while breaking a sweat. Read on to find out the workout that is helping Camila Cabello stay in shape while on her vacation—and to get beach-ready yourself, don't miss these essential 30 Best-Ever Celebrity Bikini Photos!
Camila is Paddleboarding
"Nothin to do nowhere to be," the 24-year-old captioned a photo of herself standup paddleboarding in a black bikini. The body confident singer stood aboard her board, holding a paddle in the air while posing for a photo. "Stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) has moved away from just a resort sport-something you can only find at fancy beachside properties-to an activity that you can do anywhere you can find a body of water. You can take a SUP class, go on a SUP trip, and rent SUP boards at most sporting goods stores," says Shape.
Stand Up Paddleboarding Is a Great Workout
A recent study conducted by The American Council on Exercise (ACE) found that standup paddleboarding offers a majorly beneficial core workout and is also a great form of cardio. And, from the look on Camila's face, it is super fun as well. "ecause SUP involves maintaining your balance on a board with water underfoot, the belief is that your core muscles need to fire more to steady yourself. Study participants paddled at three levels of difficulty-light, somewhat hard, and hard/heavy (but not at maximal exertion). Researchers found that when people paddled at or above a light level of perceived exertion, the erector spinae (muscles of the back) and rectus abdominis (abdominal) muscles were stimulated enough to boost strength. The external obliques, on the other hand, weren't activated enough to improve strength unless people were paddling really hard," says Shape.
Camila Continues to Celebrate Her Body
During her beach vacation, Camila has been proudly showing off her curves. In a recent TikTok video titled "I luv my body" that went viral, she explained that she is full of self-confidence. "Being at war with your body is so last season. I am grateful for this body that lets me do what I need to do. We are real women with curves and cellulite and stretch marks and fat and we gotta own that baby!"
She is Anti-Airbrush Generally
It's likely that the star isn't using any filters or airbrushing her photos either. In 2019, she reminded fans that the bodies seen on social media aren't always as real as they seem. "I'm writing this for girls like my little sister who are growing up on social media," she wrote in an Instagram story. "They're constantly seeing photoshopped, edited pictures and thinking that's reality, and everyone's eyes get used to seeing airbrushed skin, and suddenly they think THAT'S the norm. It isn't. It's fake. AND FAKE IS BECOMING THE NEW REAL." She added that "a completely unrealistic view of a woman's body," is promoted. "Girls, cellulite is normal. Fat is normal. It's beautiful and natural."
She Is Committed to Authenticity
"No matter who the person is or how much I want to impress them, I'm not going to let that rule how I act, how open I am, or what my opinion is," she once told Elle about her commitment to self. "I'm just going to be myself. I listen to my gut. That's all I can do." "Self-compassion means accepting yourself as the imperfect person that you are. When you embrace the idea that you'll never be perfect, you can accept that mistakes are an important part of your life's journey that contribute to who you are. Being kinder to yourself also boosts your resiliency and makes you kinder and more compassionate toward others," says the Mayo Clinic.
