We might have officially found our newest source of female and fitness inspiration. Model Iskra Lawrence, who shut down the thigh-gap debate and a body shamer on Instagram, continues to keep it real. Not only is she vocal about body positivity, but she also kills it in the gym. She posted an Instagram video of herself completely crushing box jumps while holding a 22-pound kettlebell. According to her caption, “3-5 sets of 10-15 reps” is how she likes to warm up.
She also shared an unfiltered photo of herself after her workout, sweat and all, to show that strength isn’t characterized by calories, weight, or size. She wrote in her caption: “I do this because I eat what I want (in moderation) . . . and I never feel guilty because I also eat nutritious foods and reward myself with exercise. I haven’t dieted, calorie counted in 6 years or weighed myself.” She doesn’t overdo it in the gym and works out about three times a week for two hours.
✨🤒 wanted to take a post workout pic to show you that without sweating my ass off and hardly being able to walk out the gym cus my legs are jelly. 💙I do this because I eat what I want (in moderation) I bloody love 🍩🍫🍕 and I never feel guilty because I also eat nutritious foods and reward myself with exercise. I haven’t dieted, calorie counted in 6 years or weighed myself. 🌸 I’ve learnt what works for me by listening to my body. 💛I now train 3 times a week for about 2 hours starting off with cardio warm ups like skipping and boxjumps. ✨ moving onto light weights and getting upto my heavy squats finishing off with stretching. 💙It’s taken me 5 years of consistently working out no matter where I am (you can exercise anywhere at anytime esp when traveling) trying all sorts of PTs, classes & YouTubes to get to the point where I LOVE working out because I want to be healthy and strong for life. 🦄✨I have never regretted a workout and when I struggle for motivation I just remember how good I felt after the last time. 🙌💪🏼 no one can hand you motivation but you and your body deserve it. You only have one body this lifetime so why not look after it💕✨🌸 #iskralawrence #everyBODYisbeautiful 🚫no retouching, filters, make up just sweat lol wearing all @aerie and for anyone who about to comment it’s #builtNOTbought
Badass and incredibly strong, Iskra is a force to be reckoned with. We can’t wait to see what else she shares!
