When you watch any of the movies from the Fifty Shades franchise, it's impossible not to be amazed by the actors who confidently perform naked. But we all know that these celebs also earned that confidence, especially because they take their diets and workouts seriously; with the same determination (or maybe a bit less, LOL!) you can achieve your dream, nude-scene-ready bod, too!
While filming the latest Fifty Shades of Grey installment, her on-set trainer, Ramona Braganza, revealed that Dakota Johnson spent a good amount of time on the rowing machine. She told Pop Sugar that they "focused on posture, for length on camera." In general, the moves they kept going back to were geared towards "shaping shoulders and arms, and accentuating a small, tight waist."
So why the rowing machine, you ask? Because it's a head-to-toe workout. Not only is it great for "warming up the back, shoulders, and arms while using core muscles to stabilize the body," you also exercise your legs and glutes!
Here's Dakota's exact routine:
- Warm up for two minutes at an easy row pace.
- Begin sprint intervals: 30-second sprint (by pushing and pulling harder), then 30-second rest.
- Repeat five times = one set. Do three sets total!
