She Does Mixed Martial Arts
In a video clip she shared, Sydney can be seen boxing and kickboxing like a pro. In addition to fighting with her trainer, he has her incorporating punches into workout moves, including crunches. "I'm trained in mixed martial arts," the actress previously told Marie Claire. "I started when I was 14 and did my first competition at 18. It was a grappling competition against all guys a weight category above me, and I got first place. Those guys were probably saying, 'Oh, we didn't want to hurt her,' but they were definitely trying. Everyone broke a sweat!"
When she isn't kicking butt in the MMA arena, Sydney is water and snow skiing. In a recent Instagram "yearly ski post" she showed off her skills. "Hope one day i can do this everyday," she wrote. "Getting 150 minutes of cardiovascular exercises each week is important, according to the American College of Sports Medicine," says the Mayo Clinic. "There are many options to explore when it comes to cardio workouts. Consider what you can do in the comfort of your own home, outdoors or in the gym. Swimming, cross-country skiing, stair-climbing and jumping rope are examples of exercises that will increase your cardiovascular rate."
She Hikes, Walks, and Runs
Another one of Sydney's favorite outdoor activities is hiking. She has shared several photos of herself getting her walk on, oftentimes with her canine companion. "If you need me I'll be climbing some rocks," she captioned an image. "I try to take my dog on a walk twice a day. We'll do a 2-mile walk in the morning and again at night if I can. If I'm feeling really motivated, I'll run," she told Bustle.
She Avoids Two Trendy Workouts
"I've tried to get into yoga, but my mind just races too much so I can't get there yet," she admitted to Yahoo. She added to Bustle that she has never hopped on a Peloton. "When you lift weights, your muscles get stronger and bigger. When you do yoga, your brain cells develop new connections, and changes occur in brain structure as well as function, resulting in improved cognitive skills, such as learning and memory. Yoga strengthens parts of the brain that play a key role in memory, attention, awareness, thought, and language. Think of it as weightlifting for the brain," says Harvard Health.
Sydney focuses on hydration, and has one go-to drink. "I have never even tried coffee. I only drink water — for whatever reason, when I was like, 12, I decided I would only drink water and I just stuck with it. I love water, it's my thing," she told Bustle. "The National Academy of Medicine suggests an adequate intake of daily fluids of about 13 cups and 9 cups for healthy men and women, respectively, with 1 cup equaling 8 ounces. Higher amounts may be needed for those who are physically active or exposed to very warm climates," says Harvard Health.
She Does Workout Videos
Sydney also does workouts in the comfort of her own home. "If I have an hour, I'll do a workout video at home, like a DOGPOUND one. Sometimes it's hard if I'm missing equipment, but it's doable," she told Bustle.
She Eats a Little Sugar
Sydney isn't afraid of a little sugar, revealing to Bustle that for breakfast she is "really into" croissant toast that she eats with cinnamon sugar and honey butter. Other favorite sweet treats? "I'll have some Swedish Fish or anything gummy if I'm tired. I've had a Shirley Temple to celebrate," she added.
