Blake Lively Exercise Routine

'Blake hadn’t done much training before but when she saw me training her co-star Ryan Reynolds, she wanted to take advantage of my services,' he says. The willowy blonde already had a beautiful figure but, for Blake, training was more about improving her strength, core and aesthetics. Blake had to perform some of her own stunts on the film, so turned to Strom to help her achieve strength and flexibility. 'She knew if she trained with me she could master these stunts amazingly,’ he says. And with Strom as her taskmaster, Blake says she's being tested more than ever. ‘I’m working out harder than before,’ says Blake. ‘With all those stunts, it makes sense to be well-prepared.’ BLAKE'S SCHEDULE Strom trained Blake for 60 to 90 minutes four times a week, depending on how her shoots were going. ‘Ryan and Blake normally both had day shoots but because Blake started shooting her scenes later in the day, I’d train Ryan at 5.30am and then Blake around 9am. Sometimes there were night shoots, so it was quite tiring,’ he explains. On top of that, Blake had a lot of massages to help her get through. ‘It really helped her back,’ says Strom, ‘while helping to break up all the tight muscle tissue so she could relax and get stronger.’ So exactly how did Strom whip Blake into tip-top shape? ‘We started with functional training,’ says Strom. ‘Because of the way you’ve been conditioned to use your body in life, your dominant body side means you have weakened, underdeveloped areas, which prevents you from making muscle and strength gains. This training targets weak areas and activates other muscles to adapt and grow. It also helps stability and core strength too,’ says Strom. The trainer also did unilateral training with Blake. For example, while standing on your right leg (soft knee), lift your opposite foot in front of you, then lateral lift a 5lb dumbbell with your left arm. Do this for 20 reps and switch sides. ‘Using opposite sides of the body destabilises it,’ he says, ‘so you have to use new muscles to stabilise.’ This exercise improves balance and co-ordination while building up muscle but not bulk.

Kourtney Kardashian's Exercise Routine

With a baby, a bicoastal lifestyle, and a business to run, Kourtney Kardashian needs an exercise routine that fits into her crazy days. "I tried working out at the gym in our New York City hotel, which was boring, and I took bootcamp classes with Kim, but they're just not for me," she says . So she decided to return to her favorite workout: running. To help her stay strong for her almost-daily runs and avoid aches and pains, we put together some moves and drills that will work her legs and core and even make hoofing it feel easier. 1. Start Small "I used to always get a chai latte from Starbucks, but I just switched to one espresso shot," Kourtney tells Life & Style. Simply swapping 16 ounces of latte for an espresso saves 235 calories! "I'm allowing myself one serving of caffeine while breastfeeding [baby Mason], and the latte was really all sugar and milk," said Kourtney, who also cuts out other unnecessary calories, like those from juice and dehydrated fruits. "I was eating a lot of dried fruit, and I didn't realize how much sugar that added. And now I'll eat raw almonds instead of salted ones." 2. Know What Works Best for Your Body Kourtney likes the few extra pounds she gained in her bottom while pregnant -- so she's found exercises that will help her keep her booty, but tone and lift it. "I want to try to do squats -- stuff that will keep the booty up there," she said about the classic power move that helps lift, tone and define the legs, quads, hamstrings and glutes. 3. Find a Sport You Love -- And Run With It "I'm big on running -- just putting on my iPod Shuffle and going for a run by my house," said Kourtney, who also uses the treadmill or elliptical at her mom's house. Nutritionist Oz Garcia says choosing an enjoyable activity is half the battle. "You'll be having fun and losing weight at the same time." 4. Pairing Up Makes A Workout Twice As Fun I've been jogging on the beach a little with Khloé," Kourtney says about her younger sister. "At home, Kim and I were going to workout classes." Having or finding an exercise partner who shares the same fitness goals increases your motivation, said Garcia. 5. Keep Your Body Guessing "I started doing weight-training to shock my body into doing something I'm not really used to -- and I've noticed a difference already," Kourtney tells Life & Style. Garcia said it's smart: "If you keep the same routine when training your muscles, you probably won't see growth or a major difference in your body." A good rule of thumb: Switch up your regimen every six to eight weeks.

Mickey Rourke Immortals Workout

Mickey Rourke: I had torn my bicep and I just had bicep surgery. I lost my whole tendon. The operation didn’t work. So I was actually worried about just being able to tie my shoes. It’s one of the reasons I wore a gauntlet up here (motions to top of his right arm). I had a big scar. I’m going to have to have a cadaver tendon put in to fix it. I was arm wrestling some rugby players at four in the morning. We had been drinking at a pub in London and I lost [laughs]. But we became good friends and out of that actually I got interested in meeting these guys. They gave me a magazine about their club. I was reading the magazine. There was an article about Gareth Thomas, the rugby player who announced that he’s gay. I came back home and was watching Pardon the Interruption and they were talking about Gareth. They were saying how brave he was for coming out and announcing it. I got on a plane and I met Gareth and I told him, “I wanna make your life story.” I think I beat the studio out there by about four days and he gave me the rights. We’re gonna do this movie now. He announced his retirement three days ago. I’ve been writing the script for the past year. Hopefully we’ll do it in March. In the beginning he had full days devoted to training and learning sword combat, and on lunch breaks he had to eat and sleep. As for the exercises, he would do: Pull ups for his awesome warrior back Dumbbell rows Push ups for triceps muscles Deadlifts for core strength Box jumps Floor wipes with the barbell as the crew from 300 did Burpee (more of a cardio exercise) Bench press for huge chest Cable chest press Shoulder press Tricep dips for the warrior look Squats for bulking legs Leg extensions for a shredded look Calf raises Also kettlebell swings can improve your overall condition (added bonus)

Kate Upton Exercise

Using his method called “ModelFIT”—customized to each and every client—the powerhouse trainer ran Upton through a mix of circuit training workouts that changed daily. An example routine would consist of some stretching exercises with elastic bands to work the back, chest, and legs, followed by Pilates, yoga, or kickboxing with work on the BOSU ball and core board, then stepups and moves on a step ladder. Their circuits would include 4-5 bootcamp-style sets of 8-10 exercises and a 30-second rest period in between each move. Each set, however, would be slightly different to work multiple areas of the body. (Use this simple guide to create the perfect circuit workout for you.) “Kate is one in a million! She always puts in a whole-hearted effort to her workouts and is always ready to work,” Gelband says. “She would put in seven days a week if I let her! She knows how to get it done and is so humble, sweet yet tough, and educated at the same time.” Kate’s circuit training consisted of 8 to 10 exercises in a single circuit with a 30-60 seconds rest in between the exercises. She starts with walking on the treadmill as a warm up exercise. Then, shifting to kickboxing, elastics bands, rope skipping. Daily the exercises are different so as to develop different muscles and keep away the boredom. She uses weights also to develop her muscles. She perform 3 circuits of the exercise chart made by Gelband. Her workout schedule is much similar to Candice Swanepoel as Gelband is one of the person behind the success of these beauties.

Dwayne Johnson Walking Tall Workout

As he transitions into meatier roles that require him to look less superhuman--this spring's gritty remake of Walking Tall; the summer 2005 flick Spy Hunter; and a comic turn in Be Cool, the ensemble follow-up to Get Shorty--his body has needed to transition as well. He's lost 20 pounds and slashed his body fat from 14 percent to 7 percent--all through a program you'll find in these pages. Just another Kafka moment in a pop-culture work in progress? Hardly. The longer we sat in that diner booth with the Rock, the clearer it became that, to him, change is sustenance. Another evolution was at hand--bigger and better roles were coming. It was time to shed the cartoon qualities that work under wrestling's bigtop, and project totally unexpected qualities: human warmth, vulnerability, and humor. That's when the Rock's blue-chip workout program--the one that had kept him primed for years of turnbuckle abuse--failed him. "I'd work out religiously," he recalls, "but my muscles were flat. And I always felt like I was running on empty. Not only was I not seeing any gains, I was barely maintaining." But the Rock has seen and accepted more change than the cheapie slots at the MGM Grand. "I like change," he says, spearing--maybe even bruising--the tabletop with his forefinger for emphasis. "Being on the road with my dad, traveling from state to state and living like a gypsy, man, life made me deal with change. Now, whenever change is needed, I say, 'Okay, I get it. Let's devise a plan and see what I can do.' " For this evolution, the Rock consulted a new trainer, Billy Beck, and with a new plan in hand, slimmed down to 245 and cut his body fat in half in 4 months. The amount of time he spent in the gym didn't change. The amount of food he ate did: He had to eat more.

Daniel Craig's Workout Routine

Craig’s workout began every week with a full body circuit routine routine. Circuits seem to come and go as far as popularity, but if done correctly they can be an awesome way to not just build muscle and shed fat but to also actually get in shape. After hitting the circuit routine on Monday, the rest of the week was focused on building solid muscle until Friday where he repeated the circuit. Then he took the weekend to do light cardio and recover from the week’s grueling workouts. Monday & Friday – Full Body Circuit Since this is a circuit, doing all of the exercises consecutively is considered 1 set. Do 15 reps for each exercise with as little rest between exercises as you can do. After you’ve done 1 set rest for 3-4 minutes and repeat. Do a total of 3 sets. Clean and Press Weighted Knee Raise Weighted Step-ups Pullups Incline Pushup Triceps Dips Tuesday – Chest & Back Incline Bench Press – 4sets of 10 reps Pullups – 4sets of 10 reps Incline Pushup – 4sets of 10 reps Incline Dumbbell Flys – 4sets of 10 reps Wednesday – Legs Squat – 4sets of 10 reps Straight-Leg Deadlifts – 4sets of 10 reps Hamstring Curl – 4sets of 10 reps Weighted Lunge – 4sets of 10 reps Thursday – Shoulders & Arms Incline Biceps Curls – 4sets of 10 reps Triceps Dips – 4sets of 10 reps Lateral Raises – 4sets of 10 reps Shoulder Press – 4sets of 10 reps Saturday & Sunday – Rest / Light Cardio

Channing Tatum Routine

As trainer William J. Harris reveals, the focus with Tatum for “Fighting” was to make him athletic looking without making him bulkier. The fact that, while still in an enviable shape, the actor also loves junk food and knocking back a few cold ones every now and then made it imperious for Harris to come up with a routine that would make Tatum lose some weight while also building muscle. After all, the aim was to make him look agile and, at the same time, incredibly strong: and the first step into that direction was to get him to drop 30 pounds in the 3 weeks before shooting started, Harris reveals. Here’s a plan I drew up that you guys can follow to get a body like Channing Tatum: Day 1 (Chest + Back + HIIT) Incline press – 4 sets x 8 reps Wide grip bar dips – 3 sets x 10-12 reps Weighted chins – 4 sets x 8 reps Bent-over barbell row – 3 sets x 10-12 reps Weighted lower back extension – 3 sets x 10 reps On treadmill/bike: Begin with a light warmup for 3 minutes (moderate walking pace) 30 second sprint followed by 90 seconds rest Repeat step 2 for 15 minutes Day 2 - Rest Day 3 – (Shoulders + Arms + Abs) Seated dumbbell shoulder press – 3 sets x 8 reps Dumbbell side raise – 2 sets x 13 reps Dumbbell rear delt raise – 2 sets x 13 reps Dumbbell curl – 3 sets x 8 reps Overhead tricep rope extensions – 3 sets x 8 reps Weighted cable crunches – 3 sets x 12-15 reps Side plank – 2 minutes per side Day 4 – Rest Day 5 – Repeat Day 1 Day 6 – Rest Day 7 – Repeat Day 3

Kevin Nash Workout

Here what's Kevin said : As far as my personal life, here’s a look at my typical day: Alarm goes off at 12. I’m still keeping my practice of waking up at the crack of noon. Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, a couple of 16-ounce mugs before taking my Hydroxicut. I try to ride my stationary bicycle first thing in the morning. Shower. My training partner is Disco Inferno, and we usually workout from 1-3 p.m. If I don’t do cardio at home, I do it at the gym with Glenn. After working out, I drive 23 miles north of city and spend the rest of the day with my son till it’s time for him to go to bed. We play video games, go to the arcade, play Army-men, watch TV, or just do whatever. "T" usually spends 2 nights/week at my loft. I don’t watch much TV, but the only can’t-miss show these days is, Six Feet Under. That’s my show, the show I watch every week. I also watch ESPN SportsCenter nightly, usually the 2 a.m. edition. I go to bed at 4 a.m.
