Prior to working out, Maddie fueled up with some "oats." She then started her do-anywhere routine, which consisted of lots of jumping jacks, kicks, running in place, pliés, crunches, leg circles, yoga stretches, the splits, and lots of stretching.
She Showers Post Workout
"The reason why I shower immediately after I workout is that I am prone to breaking out on my face and back," Maddie explains. "So if I quickly get into the shower right after I don't break out as much." In addition to potentially protecting skin from breakouts, showering post-workout can help prevent a number of other health woes, including skin and yeast infections.

While drinking too much caffeine can leave you jittery, there are a number of proven health benefits of coffee drinking, per Johns Hopkins Medicine.

But coffee also contains antioxidants and other active substances that may reduce internal inflammation and protect against disease," explains Diane Vizthum, M.S., R.D., research nutritionist for Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Not only does it help promote longevity, as coffee drinkers are less likely to die from coronary heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and kidney disease, it may help decrease your chance of developing type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, and stroke.
