Online PR News – 22-July-2011 – – Blake Lively's career is blowing up since her starring role in the hit movie, "Green Lantern". The Gossip Girl star had to get in top shape for the movie, and with the help of celebrity trainer Bobby Strom, she did...
Bobby, who met Blake while she was filming the 'Green Lantern' last year, says the starlet had experienced little fitness training before he began working with her.
"She had a really nice shape when we met and is healthy anyway, so it wasn’t as if she needed to lose any weight," he says.
"At first it was more about improving Blake’s strength, core and aesthetics. She also had a couple of stunts to do for the movie which she wanted to be proficient at."
Blake began working out with Bobby for 90 minutes, three or four times a week before filming her scenes for the comic book movie and the trainer says that her body shape changed almost overnight.
"Maybe three weeks after we’d started training together she did a photo shoot. She came back and told me she looked different," he says with pride.
"Blake’s shoulders, arms and back did look fantastic!".
Bobby's work-out method, named Functional Training, targets weak areas and activates different muscles to adapt and grow, a technique which did wonders for Blake.
"Several exercises that we might do are what's called Unilateral Exercises, for example standing on the left leg, then raising the right arm with a dumbbell.
"With Blake, we’d do around 20 repetitions on each side with all these different sorts of movements. I did them all pretty light, so the weight she used would be around 5lbs.
Unlike some popular celebrity diets like the Tracy Anderson diet, Blake has stuck to just eating healthy and working hard. I'm sure that's not easy as Blake's on and off relationship with Leonardo DiCaprio has been well documented by gossip magazine and paparazzi, which can be distracting.
