She's A Fighter
VanZant is a professional mixed martial arts fighter and boxer. Naturally, this means she's in top shape at all times. Boxing and martial arts are a great way of getting exercise, and can help with muscle building and burning calories. A 2017 study in Biology of Sport states that boxing can increase muscle mass and decrease body fat.
She Takes Ice Baths
In this reel from her Instagram, VanZant revealed that she likes to take ice baths to help her muscles recover. Ice baths, while cold, are a great way to help your body recover from a tough workout. Elizabeth Gardner, MD, tells Byrdie that ice baths work well because of the "rapid dilation of the blood vessels also delivers much-needed oxygen and nutrients to the muscles, which in theory should help them to recover after a hard workout."
She Enjoys Time in The Pool
VanZant loves to spend time in the pool, and posts a lot of poolside and swimming photos and videos on Instagram.
She Works Out With Her Husband
VanZant and her husband, fellow MMA fighter, Austin Vanderford, like to workout together. They sometimes will work out with the same coach. VanZant posted this video on Instagram of the couple exercising together. She captioned the video, "Couples who workout together stay together."
She Weight Trains
VanZant is a fan of weight training, and she isn't afraid to do some heavy lifting. Literally. VanZant posted this video on Instagram of herself lifting a large barbell. She captioned the video, "What's the weight???;) Getting stronger with coach @evertonvoliviera at @americantopteam."
She Does Yoga
VanZant also does yoga. She posted a series of photos on Instagram of herself doing poses on the beach. She captioned the photo, "Sometimes I do yoga."
