Scarlett Johansson is fast becoming one of Hollywood’s sexiest, hottest celebs , Scarlett is one of the few women who embrace their curves and don’t try to change her natural body shape. She’s admitted in the past she knows she’ll never be a waif and is lucky to have what she’s got. For her preparation of her role in Iron Man II, Scarlett workout with the trainer of Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow. Some of her favorite exercises are jumping jacks, walking, crunches, pull-ups, push ups, jogging, planks, squats, and lunges.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON SAID :

"It was many, many, hours, days, and months of stunt training and strength training, but it's fun because I had a goal. The goal was the Lycra catsuit."

SCARLETT - "Nutrition is what makes the difference—it's the key to seeing the results you want," says Strom. "It's the most important change factor."scarlett-johansson

SCARLETT JOHANSSON WORKOUT ROUTINE :

•  Mix up your cardio with something new like kickboxing. Go for eight three-minute rounds resting 60-90 seconds in between.

•  Sculpt your body with three sets of stabilization exercises, resistance bands or bodyweight squats and lunges.

•  Finish with 15 minutes on the treadmill, every three minutes sprint 20 seconds and rest 40.

 

 Scarlett Johansson teamed up with husband Ryan Reynolds's longtime trainer Bobby Strom five months before filming to get in bodysuit-worthy shape. "When I met Bobby, the first thing I said was, 'I have to wear a Lycra catsuit!'" Johansson says. "He was, like, 'Calm down—and walk on this treadmill.'" They worked out for 90 minutes, seven days a week and kept a strong focus on her nutrition. "She really hated working out, she'd done it for a past film and had a bad experience," he says. "It was a transition, but once it happened she loved working hard.

The first day she freaked out because it was really hard," Strom says. "But by the end of the five months she had totally changed her lifestyle. She has eliminated salt, and works out three days a week, and now can workout with her husband, Ryan Reynolds" (who Strom also trains).

T-Push up – 5 reps each side (works arms, chest, core and shoulders)

Get in pushup position with feet together and hands shoulder-width apart. Lower yourself untilyour chest is a few inches off the floor. As you push back up, lift your right arm straight up and rotate your body to the right until you for a T, balancing on your left hand and the outside of your left foot. Return to the top of the pushup position and repeat to the opposite side. That’s one rep.

Flamingo Extensions – 10-12 reps, all left leg, then all right leg (works back, core, glutes and shoulders)

Stand with feet together. Bend left leg slightly and lift right foot off the ground behind you until right knee is bent 90 degrees. Bend forward at the hips as you extend your right leg behind you and left arm in front of you so your body form a T. As you do this, brace your core, squeeze your shoulder blades together, and engage your glutes. Return to start, and repeat for 10 to 12 reps. Repeat on the opposite side. This move can be challenging if you have tight hamstrings.

Jump Squats – repeat 10 times without stopping (for cardio and works lower body)

Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, arms at your sides. Lower into a squat then, as you come up, jump explosively into the air (you can throw arms up for even more height). Land with knees soft and sink back down into the squat.

She sometimes does yoga, but puts her slim figure down mostly to living in the city, as “you do a lot of exercise and eat smartly.”
