She Makes Smoothies

In this reel, Baker shared some of her wellness secrets. At the beginning of the video, she makes a smoothie. Baker puts spinach, bananas, apples, and coconut water in it. Utah State University states that smoothies have a lot of benefits. "Smoothies can be a vehicle for many nutrients considered essential to the human body. It all depends on what ingredients are used. Most of the healthy nutrients in our smoothies will come from fruit or vegetables used. Benefits of a diet high in fruits and vegetables include lower risk of diseases such as diabetes, obesity, cancer, and cardiovascular disease (Slavin & Lloyd, 2012). Smoothies may be an effective way to increase the amount of fruits and vegetables in our diets (Bates & Price, 2015)."


She Strength Trains

Baker likes to strength train. In the previous reel, she is seen using a barbell. The Mayo Clinic states that strength training has a lot of benefits. "By stressing your bones, strength training can increase bone density and reduce the risk of osteoporosis. Strength training can help you manage or lose weight, and it can increase your metabolism to help you burn more calories."


She Does Squats

Baker also likes to do squats. She is seen doing squats with a barbell in the previous reel. Piedmont states that squats are a very effective exercise. "Squats are a compound, multi-joint movement, which means they exercise several muscle groups. When you perform a squat, you work your calves, quads, hamstrings, glutes, core and part of your back…Squats also improve blood circulation and boost the mind-body connection. They help you retain mobility by keeping your body strong as you age."


She Works Her Abs

Baker has an amazing set of abs. She shared her favorite core workouts in this reel. In it, Baker is seen doing side leg lifts, leg drop extensions, and straight leg cycles, among other things. Baker captioned the reel, "CORE EXERCISES. Try these burning ab exercises!" The Mayo Clinic states that core workouts are important. "Your core is the central part of your body. It includes your pelvis, lower back, hips and stomach. The stomach muscles sometimes are called abs. Core exercises train the muscles in your core to work in harmony. This leads to better balance and steadiness, also called stability. Stability is important whether you're on the playing field or doing regular activities. In fact, most sports and other physical activities depend on stable core muscles."
