The Bachelor Star Christina Mandrell Shares Swimsuit Photo From "Paradise"
Christina Mandrell is sending her followers into overdrive – in her swimsuit. In a recent social media post the Bachelor star shows off her incredible body in a bathing suit while sending a cryptic message to her fans. "Don't search for Paradise, let it find you," she captioned the series of Instagram snaps. "Hot," commented one of her followers. Many others took it as a hint that she would be appearing in the next season of Bachelor in Paradise. How does the reality star stay in such amazing shape? Celebwell rounded up some of her top health habits.
Christina does a form of high intensity interval training, dubbed EMOM. It stands for every minute on the minute and involves doing a set of exercises each for a full minute and then repeating the set. "Last nights EMOM (every minute on the minute)" she captioned the post, revealing that she did "6 rounds for as many reps as possible" of the following exercises.
- Assault bike for calories
- 14lb Wall balls to 10ft target
- Burpee box jump overs
- Alternating DB snatches 35lb
- Walk walks
- 1 minute rest
Christina isn't afraid of lifting heavy weights. "Weight a minute," she captioned this photo. Each week adults need 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity and 2 days of muscle-strengthening activity, according to the current Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans.
Because she works out so much, Christina understands the importance of hydration. According to the Mayo Clinic, hydration is important for a variety of reasons. Water helps get rid of waste through urination, perspiration and bowel movements, keeps your temperature normal, lubricates and cushions joints, and helps protect sensitive tissues.
Christina loves the water and is also game for a wakeboarding session. "For if I must go, let me at least go throwing thy shakkas," she captioned a recent post. "This was my first time trying to surf on an actual wake boat and I must say, I was pleasantly surprised." Wakeboarding is a great workout for the core and legs, as it forces you to stabilize and balance.
Christina is into bike riding, especially while in South Florida. "Wheelie enjoyed Miami!" she captioned a post during a trip to South Florida. The Cleveland Clinic explains that biking, a low-impact aerobic exercise, is great for building muscle, improving strength and flexibility, and improving balance. It can also boost mental health and help other health conditions, including arthritis.
