Blake Lively Trained With Cirque du Soleil for Role

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Health & Beauty, News,

Blake Lively showing off her toned figure at the Met GalaActress and stylish celebrity credits gymnastic acrobatics for her newly-toned figure.

The actress had to get in shape to play villainess Star Sapphire in new movie Green Lantern and spent hours training with members from the Cirque du Soleil to give her the body she needed.

She told , “All I want is to be a hero to my nephews and nieces. I’m going to be the coolest aunt ever. Our director likes it real - the fights close and dirty. I’m 40 feet in the air, spiralling around. That’s the best workout you can ever do because it’s all core. You do that for ten minutes and you should see your body the next day! It’s so exhilarating, so thrilling - and nauseating.”

The 22-year-old beauty’s personal trainer also confirmed Blake had put in that extra bit of effort to get into tip-top shape. Bobby Strom told Us Weekly, “She always looks good. But she has to do stunts, so we’re focusing on core and strength training. Her workout routine includes four-day-a-week, 90-minute circuit training sessions full of planks, push- ups and walking lunges in a gym near the film’s New Orleans set. She looked at her stomach and said, ‘I have abs!’”

This automated gymnastic bot is more talented than most humans we know. Earlier studies showed that walking robots needed pressure sensors on the soles of their feet. Take this a step farther and this one features a layer of urethane foam which have been embedded with LEDs and photodiodes. When the light disperses in the foam it is detected by those diodes. All we know is that the robot is incredibly impressive as it goes through its acrobatic routine.
