She Jet Skis
Mikayla loves jet skiing. "Aquatic exercise can also have several health benefits, such as improved heart health, reduced stress, and improved muscular endurance and strength. Exercising in the water can be a great way to include physical activity into your life. It may also be a beneficial way for older adults to stay active," says the Mayo Clinic.
Mikayla understands the importance of stretching. "Pre-workout stretch," she captioned an Instagram Story showing off her moves. "Stretching keeps the muscles flexible, strong, and healthy, and we need that flexibility to maintain a range of motion in the joints," says Harvard Health. "Without it, the muscles shorten and become tight. Then, when you call on the muscles for activity, they are weak and unable to extend all the way. That puts you at risk for joint pain, strains, and muscle damage."
She Does Yoga
On her Instagram Stories you can regularly find Mikayla doing yoga. There is a laundry list of reasons to do yoga, explains Harvard Health. "Researchers found that people who practiced yoga for at least 30 minutes once a week for at least four years, gained less weight during middle adulthood," they said. "People who were overweight actually lost weight. Overall, those who practiced yoga had lower body mass indexes (BMIs) compared with those who did not practice yoga. Researchers attributed this to mindfulness. Mindful eating can lead to a more positive relationship with food and eating."
She Does a Lot of Glute Work
If you want a booty like Mikayla, you are going to have to work out for it. She does a lot of glute work to build her behind. She shared an example of a glute set on her Instagram Stories. She does glute kickbacks, jump squats, and glute rainbows.
She Plays Hockey
Obviously, hockey is one of the ways Mikayla stays in shape. Even playing the sport recreationally, as little as once a week, is great for your health, one study found. Physically active males age 35 or over who play ice hockey regularly experienced enhanced health more so than other physically active males. "While these players are larger in body size, they have significantly lower rates of diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease and report significantly higher rates of self-assessed health," the study found.
