Track and Field Star Maryna Bekh-Romanchuk Shares Swimsuit Photo
Maryna Bekh-Romanchuk is heating up Ukraine in her swimsuit. In one of her latest social media posts the track and field star flaunts her fit figure in a black one-piece during a day on the water. "It was a buzzing day, and any other words here would be superfluous," she captioned the series of Instagram snaps. How does the champion athlete maintain her fit figure? Here are 5 ways she stays in shape.
As a top long jumper, running fast is a prerequisite, so it is one of many ways Maryna trains for her job. According to the Mayo Clinic, running is great for cardiovascular health, muscle building, and weight loss. "For every mile run, the average person will burn approximately 100 calories," they say.
Romanchuk also swears by a hurdle jumping workout. She recently shared this video on Instagram of herself jumping over hurdles with her legs together. "My first hurdles jump. What do you think about?" she said. She also jumps on high boxes. Both are great for working her glutes and legs.
She Does Ab Work
Maryna does a lot of ab work to keep her midsection tight. "Gym exercises for ABS and stability," she captioned a video of her workout. "With this exercise routine, my tummy is happy."
Romanchuk also skis. "At least once in a lifetime, it's worth visiting, you find yourself in an incredibly amazing fairy tale.✨ I felt like magic around me and I couldn't get enough of the beauty around me," she captioned a video. Research has linked downhill skiing to a number of health benefits. In addition to promoting physical fitness, it may decrease risk of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. Studies have also found that the more frequently a person skis, prevalence of known hypercholesterolemia, systemic hypertension, diabetes, the frequency of mental stress and the occurrence of memory deficits declines.
In this recent Instagram post, Maryna is paddleboarding. The American Council on Exercise (ACE) agrees that paddle boarding is great for the core and also a great form of cardio. The water sport can burn an average of 385 calories for a 140 pound male and 436 for a female the same size, per a study conducted by Arizona State University.
