Reese Witherspoon in Two-Piece Workout Gear Stuns "In Our Pickleball Era"

Here is how she stays so fit.

Reese Witherspoon is "in our pickleball era," according to a caption on her new Instagram post. "Pickleball is similar to tennis but has its own court, paddle, ball and rules. Most people find it more forgiving than tennis and easier to play. But even though it can be less impactful on your joints, it's still a great workout, says physical therapist Jim Edwards, DPT. You need to move quickly and make rapid decisions," according to the Cleveland Clinic. "Advanced picklers are taking their play to the next level with tournaments across the U.S. and world," Edwards told the Clinic. So how does Reese stay in shape? Here's how.


She Rides Her Bike

Last week, Witherspoon shared photos of her "Summer so far," including her on a bicycle. "Health benefits include improved cardiovascular fitness, stronger muscles, greater coordination and general mobility, and reduced body fat. As with other types of exercise, it can also help improve mental health by lowering stress levels and stimulating feel-good endorphins," says Harvard Health.


She Does Yoga

"Yoga is as good as basic stretching for easing pain and improving mobility in people with lower back pain. The American College of Physicians recommends yoga as a first-line treatment for chronic low back pain," says Hopkins Medicine. "Gentle yoga has been shown to ease some of the discomfort of tender, swollen joints for people with arthritis, according to a Johns Hopkins review of 11 recent studies."


You Know She Reads

Reese's book club is an empire. This month's choice? "If you stumbled upon a curiously abandoned house, would YOU go inside? ๐Ÿ‘€ Our July @reesesbookclub pick, #TheCliffs by @jcourtsullivan follows main character Jane's journey as she uncovers the past lives of a home. ๐Ÿ”ฆ๐Ÿ  It's an entrancing spin on a generational novel and filled with mystery."


She Hydrates With Lemon in Her Water

"Most of us don't drink enough water. A daily lemon water habit is an easy way to get your day off on the right foot. How do you know if you're drinking enough? Your urine is almost clear," says the Cleveland Clinic. And: "Like all produce, lemons contain phytonutrients, which protect your body against disease. These phytonutrients have powerful antioxidant properties, which prevent cell damage from oxidation, the same mechanism that causes rust."


She Plays Pickleball Now!

"With a smaller court and many quick movements, pickleball is a great way to improve your balance and coordination over time. The game's lateral movements allow players to build strength while improving stability. Additionally, pickleball exercises your hand-eye coordination, which is especially good for older adults who may experience a decline in hand-eye coordination with age," says Tallahassee Memorial. "An obvious perk of pickleball is its effect on our physical fitness. With a wiffle-like ball and a smaller court and racket, most people find pickleball to be easier to learn and lower impact than other racket sports while still providing health benefits."
