Women's Basketball Player Savannah Tucker in Workout Gear Leaves Fans "Speechless"

Savannah Tucker is breaking a sweat in her workout clothes. In a new social media post the NCAA basketball stars flaunts her incredible figure after a gym session. "Send ya 📍you know I'm comin," she captioned the post, throwing her followers into a frenzy. "I was speechless," one of them commented. "Such a baddie!" added another. How does the college athlete approach diet and fitness? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 



Obviously, Savannah's main form of fitness is basketball. "Basketball promotes speed, agility, strength, power and endurance. It [has] also been shown to increase flexibility and motor coordination. As a result, basketball is uniquely oriented to improve fundamental motor skills that are shown to be beneficial in promoting general health," Koco Eaton, M.D., orthopedic surgeon, founder of Eaton Orthopaedics and a former basketball player, tells Nike

Savannah also puts in her time at the gym doing strength training workouts. According to the Mayo Clinic, strength and weight training help reduce body fat, preserve and increase lean muscle mass, and burn calories more efficiently. Strength training may also help you:

  • Develop strong bones
  • Manage your weight
  • Enhance your quality of life
  • Manage chronic conditions
  • Sharpen your thinking skills


Beach Walks

Savannah, who goes to school at Long Beach State, spends a lot of time walking on the beach. Going for a daily walk can be a game changer in terms of exercise, especially at a brisk speed. One study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that walking at a brisk pace for about 30 minutes a day led to a reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, dementia and death, compared with walking a similar number of steps but at a slower pace.


Cheat Meals

As an athlete, Savannah fuels her body with healthy food. However, she does indulge every once in a while. One of her favorite meals? A cheeseburger with all the fixings. 



Because she spends so much time sweating, Savannah makes sure to hydrate. 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.
