Simone Biles Is One Of The Greatest Gymnasts Ever. But How Dose She Train?

Simone Biles is undoubtedly one of the most decorated gymnasts in the world. Her feats have earned her numerous medals as a gymnast and might even prove as a successor to retired Romanian gymnast Nadia Comăneci. Comăneci was the first gymnast at the Olympic Games to receive a perfect score of 10.0. She achieved this seven times in the Montreal 1976 Summer Olympics at the age of 14. Moreover, Biles became the youngest ever person to receive the prestigious President Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian award in the United States of America. The 25-year-old gymnast received the medal from POTUS Joe Biden.

Biles performed the Yurchenko Double Pike, becoming the first female among five other male gymnasts to successfully execute this move. This gravity-defying move begins with a round-off back handspring succeeded by two flips in the pike position. Performing this means that Biles would have had to be at the top of her fitness game, both physically and mentally. Here are a few insights on how she trains to be one of the best.

A gymnast’s workout routine makes them one of the most skilled athletes in any bodyweight discipline. This requires strict discipline, especially in Biles’ case as one of the world’s best gymnasts. In an interview with Women’s Health, she explained her training routine for five days every week. “In the morning, I usually get up between 7:40 a.m. and 7:45 a.m., and then I’ll brush my teeth, do my hair, and just throw on my leotard and my clothes and go to the kitchen.

I make breakfast, which is usually Kellogg’s Red Berries or egg whites, and then I go to the gym that’s only 10 minutes away. I have practice from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and then I drive home and eat lunch, which is either chicken or fish so I get the protein. I grab a quick snack and head back to the gym from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. and usually have more routines. After that, I either have therapy at the gym or home and then I eat dinner and chill and do it all again the next day.”
