Gyms might be closed, but that hasn’t stopped Simone Biles from working as hard as ever to stay in top shape. The 23-year-old Olympic gymnast revealed she did Zoom workouts while in self-isolation, as gyms and fitness centers were closed amid the COVID-19 pandemic. “Our gym just opened up 2 months ago so we’re trying to get into the swing of things,” she told Laurie Hernandez during a June 13 interview on CNN. “It wasn’t easy so we had to do Zoom workouts.”
Simone also talked about the postponed 2020 Olympic Games, and revealed she’s maintaining an upbeat and positive attitude. “Yes, just trying to stay positive and letting kids know that we’re all in this together and keep your head up,” she said during the interview. Simone proved just how hard she’s been working in the gym when she took to Instagram to show off her rock hard muscles.
She flaunted her enviable physique in a June 12 snap which showed her posing in a white Nike crop top, and matching booty shorts, while holding her two adorable pups Lilo and Rambo. “I can’t ….. my frenchies say NO,” she hilariously captioned the pic. The Olympic Gold medallist clearly loves the two littlest members of her family, and they looked SO camera-ready, posing for the photo like pros. Simone kept her accessories simple, opting for a simple silver necklace, while showing off her belly button ring.
Back in February, the gymnastics champion posted a video of herself teasing a move that has never been seen before in competition. She is already the most decorated gymnast in the history of the sport; if she pulls it off she’ll go down in history — and likely cement a place on the podium! Fans on Reddit noted the move she was practicing in the clip was the Yurchenko double pike. The move — which carries a high risk due to the possibility of head or neck injury — has only been performed by a handful of male gymnasts. No woman has done so in competition. The awe-inspiring clip shows Simone flipping through the air multiple times before landing in a foam pit. It’s clear the move isn’t perfect, but she has plenty of time to practice ahead of the postponed Olympic Games.Click to Subscribe to Get Our Free HollywoodLife Daily Newsletter to get the hottest celeb news.
