Globetrotting former Olympian needs to pack some protein
By Monique Savin – The Globe and Mail
Before Rosey Edeh, 44, became a reporter for ET Canada, the former college track star represented Canada in three Olympic Games. Now her athleticism helps her race between movie premieres and airports.
â€œTo always keep my level of endurance and strength high; I used to run 400-metre hurdles and now I love running 5K and 10K races for charity.â€
â€œI copy my old coachâ€™s workouts, but I donâ€™t worry about speed. I have a Nautilus combination system at home where you turn the keys to have anywhere from five to 50 pounds in your hands, so I do two to three exercises per body part, two days a week. And I do a lot of circuit training, so I might do lunges with some weights, stop, and give legs a break and do bench press or even push-ups, and then go back to lunges, and then back to push-ups. For core, I do crunches with a five-kilo medicine ball. Realizing cross training gives my body a break, six years ago I added the elliptical machine or the recumbent bike to my cardio workouts, which are about 40 minutes, five days a week.â€
