Serena Williams is on vacation in a tropical place and she shares small clips with fans on Instagram. The latest: Serena who goes full-on modeling poses while snorkeling.
The 40-year-old tennis GOAT posted a series of underwater photos in a new post, and they are everything. There’s Serena showing off her toned legs as she stretches out in a one-piece snakeskin print, Serena floating in the sea with her hand under her head, Serena flashing peace signs over a bunch of fish, and a final shot of just Serena’s tight legs and ass.
“If you ask how I got to that ball… it’s underwater training :)” she joked in the caption.
People were all about it in the comments. “Stop intimidating the sharks!” one person wrote. “Legs,” said another.
Obviously, Serena gets a lot of that overpowering tone from logging on the tennis court. But that’s not all she does.
Last year, Serena dropped a modified yoga-inspired workout routine (which she calls a “warm-up”) on Instagram. In it, Serena and her sister, fellow tennis legend Venus Williams, worked through a series of stretches and strengthening moves for 30 minutes.
“I like to call [this] a warm-up, but it’s a bit intense,” Serena said at the beginning. Afterwards, Serena said to her sister, “I’m going to do some cardio,” because of course she did.
As for that cardio, Serena also shared a video on TikTok last July doing a weighted HIIT workout. She threw a little bit of everything into the mix, including interval ladder training, some abs with a resistance band, weighted jump squats, box jumps, a range of plank variations, and more.
However, Serena doesn’t just train hard: she also eats well. She recently told Women’s Health that she follows a plant-based diet and tries to view food as fuel. “Eat to live. Don’t live to eat,” she said. “I want to have a healthy lifestyle and, you know, [I’m eating] a lot of green lately and especially plant-based, just super healthy.”
Serena said she doesn’t like food very much — “When I roll out of bed, I’m just not hungry” — so lunch, which usually contains vegetables and protein, is often her first meal of the day.
However, when she has a tournament, she switches to pasta.
“The only time I eat pasta is while playing or exercising. Normally you never see me eating pasta otherwise. Because I feel like I’ve had to eat it so many times in my career. It’s like I never want to see pasta again,” she said.
Just before a match, she often sticks to a certain menu. “I usually like to eat a lot of veggies before my competition and then fruit really, and a little bit of carbs and some kind of protein,” she said.
But Serena also describes her eating habits as “moody.”
“I can drink a smoothie for six months, and then I’m like, I don’t ever want to see another smoothie for the next six months,” she said. “And then I’m like, okay, I’m back on the smoothie. My food is very moody.”
