Introduce us to a day in your life, as an athlete and a woman full of aspirations. The first-morning ritual.
-Wake up 6am, big breakfast with coffee and morning news on TV. My breakfast is 25g protein(egg/cheese) and 70g carbs (oats/bread/fruit).
-Short bike ride to the pool 7.00. Some pre-pool activation before jumping in the pool at 7.40. (shoulder preab, mobility with foam roller, and light core activation)
-protein shake and banana after swimming for 1.5-2h (4.5-6km)
-Lunch and work with sponsors / interviews between 11-14.30
-In the Afternoon I do a gym session or dryland cardio +core work and a shorter short swim (3-4.5km) after with some speed work and drills in the pool
-Between 13.30-17.00 ish dinner and relax by myself or sometimes with friends or family 😉
– sleep time 22.00
What exercises comprise your fitness regime? Five exercises that you would never stop doing.
-Straight leg lifts(hanging like in a pull up)
-Heavy hip thrusts
-1 leg deadlifts with kettelbell (hate them, but I need them… haha),
Share the diet that you follow to remain healthy and physically fit? Five foods you absolutely love.
Never ever eat meat, chicken, pork etc…. I do eat cheese because I love it (my treat is some good quality wines and cheese…) And sometimes (maybe 1-2 a month I eat fish). My fav healthy foods are oats, avocado, egg, mango, pineapple.
Having to train constantly in extreme climate conditions, how would you take care of your skin and hair?
I spent a lot of money on skin when I was a teenager because I had terrible acne for a few years, and I was so embarrassed about that. The only thing that actually worked was to stop stressing about it, eat healthy, get enough d-vitamins/ zinc etc. and eat absolutely no sugar.
My hair is actually amazing quality even if I’m spending a lot of time in the pool. My fav products for hair is bjorn axen and for skin ole henrikssen and dermalogica.
