Charlotte lifts heavy weights. "I just turned 35, and I'm like, I want to be in the best shape of my life," she says. "I've done CrossFit and I was really into running in college, but right now I love bodybuilding," she told Muscle & Fitness about her new workout obsession.
She Also Does Cardio and HIIT
Charlotte mixes up her routine. She breaks up her bodybuilding with regular cardio and HIIT circuits for 3 days per week. "I'll cycle with an app where we do 20 seconds on, and 20 seconds off, or I'll ride around the park. We'll do pull ups, dips and push ups before we start the workout," she told Muscle & Fitness.
She Makes Nutrition a Priority
Charlotte also prioritizes nutrition. She eats five meals per day. "It's about portion control," she told Muscle & Fitness. "It depends on what your goals are." An average breakfast would be protein enriched oatmeal. Then, for lunch, she might eat steak with two tortillas and cactus followed by chicken with half a cup of rice, cucumbers, and lettuce for dinner.
She Has a Workout Buddy
Charlotte has a workout buddy: Her husband, All Elite Wrestling star Andrade El Idolo. The two regularly work out together, sharing their couple sessions on social media. Having a workout buddy makes exercise more fun and helps keep you accountable.
"I love ice cream, chocolate, cheeseburgers, and tacos, but I have developed a plan that I can enjoy food and not worry about it being labeled bad or not healthy," Charlotte told Food & Beverage. However, she makes healthier choices, like eating a cheeseburger on a whole wheat bun and adding avocado. "There is always a way to make the food you love enjoyable, healthy, and a part of your dining routine if you commit to it," she said.
