Ryan Reynolds – Green Lantern Workout Routine

Ryan Reynolds had to get into the best shape of his life for the role of Hal Jordan in ‘Green Lantern’, and he did not disappoint.

There are many those who say that Ryan should have received an award for his body alone, if not for his acting in the movie.

As per usual with superhero movies, you can never anticipate what kind of success the film will have when it hits the theaters, which is exactly what happened with Green Lantern.

Although the movie itself received mixed reviews, Ryan’s performance was admirable, and you could see that he has worked a lot to fit his character.

In order to achieve the body of a superhero, Ryan had to follow a certain routine that he developed with celebrity trainer Bobby Strom. The workout routine involved a 7 days a week regime, with sessions lasting 90 minutes each. The core circuit training focused on one body part per day, which is the only way Ryan could have achieved the desired effects in a relatively short period of time.
