Blake Lively : Fitness secrets, Exercise Programme
Actress Blake Lively who is best known for her role on CW’s ‘Gossip Girl’ has teamed up both on screen and in fitness with Actor Ryan Reynolds in preparation for the filming of DC Comic’s action flick ‘Green Lantern’ filmed last year.
To tone up for these roles both actors enlisted the help of personal trainer Bobby Strom. The celebrity trainer reveled that he kept Lively and Reynolds on a diet of flaxseed, protein, salad, oatmeal and suggested abstinence from alcohol; all meals were personally prepared by Strom for the acting duo.
In addition to healthy eating Lively also underwent regular workout sessions with Strom who stresses that circuit training is the ultimate way to change a body.
She focuses on cardio-conditioning-core circuits classes, designed by one of America’s top personal trainers to the stars Bobby Storm. She uses dumbbells and swiss balls to combine exercise movements, meaning that she will use more muscle groups at once – a very clever way to train as it burns more calories and means you will shape up quicker.
Blake Lively Diet and exercise by Storm!
Blake Lively’s diet consists of a fresh vegetable juice to start the day and lean proteins (such as eggs, chicken and fish) mixed with salads and steamed vegetables. Classic food for eating healthy and loosing weight… we all know that!!!… Now it is time to get inspired by her and start eating a healthy balanced diet…
She’s always been lean and slender, but, for her first action role, in the recently released “Green Lantern,” Blake Lively had to double her efforts to be in the best shape possible. Her trainer, Bobby Strom, is now revealing the secrets behind that killer figure that Blake has.
Storm has trained anyone and everyone who’s an A-list celebrity, from Britney Spears to Shakira and Beyonce, so he was probably just right for the job of getting Blake in action girl mode.
He also trained Ryan Reynolds for his part in the same movie, so seeing that both stuck to his conditions and limitations was easy, he reveals in a new interview cited by Daily Mail.
For “Green Lantern,” for instance, he made sure Blake would resist temptation by cooking her meals himself: this way, he made sure she got enough nutrients to make it through training, while also keeping an eye on the calories.
“With this project I did all the cooking. For breakfast I made Blake and Ryan eat oatmeal. I’d cook a big batch of steel cut oatmeal – not the instant type they sell in packets,” Storm reveals.
“It may sound a little boring but it’s a very good complex carbohydrate, which is really low in fat. I’d put fresh fruit in it – usually berries like blueberries,” he says.
“Then I added a little almond milk to sweeten it and a bit of protein powder so they got some carbohydrate and protein in one meal and I also added some flax seeds which are essential fats,” Storm further explains.
For lunch, he would usually make chicken or fish for his two actor clients, with a salad on the side. Dinner usually consisted of the same, perhaps with some brown rice to go with it.
“Eat one little candy bar and you have the same calories as eating a whole trough of salad and vegetables with steak or fish,” Storm notes.
Because of this, he underlines that he recommends his regular clients, those who are not movie stars preparing for a role, to change their lifestyle, because that’s the secret. Dieting on short periods of time doesn’t work.
