She Kick Boxes and Boxes
Fighting is her job, so Nikkita spends plenty of time training. She shared this video of herself sparring on the beach. She captioned it, "Born to be authentic. You hold the pen, so write YOUR story how YOU want." She also posted this video of herself using different bags at the gym. She captioned it, "Why hit 1 when you can hit 5."
Nikkita makes sure to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. "Before I eat 😡 …. After I eat 😇 lol," she captioned this photo. According to the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine men should drink about 15.5 cups (3.7 liters) of fluids a day and women about 11.5 cups (2.7 liters) of fluids.
She Is Body Positive
During an interview with Out of Character With Ryan Satin, Nikkita explains that she shuts out the haters. "I might get hate comments, and I might get people that are saying, 'She's only popping because of this and that.' But in reality, I know that the hard work and grinding that has transpired throughout my life is paying off." She also embraces her buff body. "It's thunder thigh day. Thigh gap? It's thigh CLAP B***H," she captioned this video of her workout.
Nikkita also dances. She likes to share videos of herself busting a move. Dancing is a great workout for many reasons. Not only does it build strength and promote flexibility, but helps you lose weight and even promotes cardiovascular function. A 2016 study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine determined that people who engaged in moderate-intensity dancing were 46 percent less likely to develop heart disease or die from it than non-dancers. In comparison, moderate-intensity walkers were just 25 percent less likely to suffer heart health issues.
She Weight Trains
Nikkita also spends a lot of time weight training to keep her body in fighting form. In this video she shares an example of her workout, doing deadlifts with a barbell, kettlebell squats, and lateral pulls with a weight. She captioned it, "New beginnings. Me vs me." "Kettlebells have been used for centuries, most famously by 19th-century strongmen. Today the weights (which range from 8 to 105 pounds) are featured in exercise classes, gyms, and fitness equipment stores, and for good reason: they work several muscle groups at a time. Holding a lot of weight by a handle engages your arm, leg, shoulder, back, and abdominal muscles. The pull on your muscles helps to strengthen them. The pull on your bones helps stimulate new bone cell growth," says Harvard Health.
