Ryan Reynolds' Workout Secrets
Personal trainer Bobby Strom shares the workouts he gives actor Ryan Reynolds.
Did you design his diet as well while you were in New Orleans?
I cooked for him six days a week. I’d make a healthy Bolognese: 97% fat-free ground bison, sautéed in a skillet with broccolini and my own marinara sauce, along with black pepper, a little cayenne, and some garlic. No salt, so sugar, served over brown rice or a top-quality brown rice pasta.
I’d also cook ground turkey and grilled salmon.
What do you say to clients who tell you they want to look like Ryan Reynolds?
It’s good to have a role model but don’t carry it too far. Don’t say, ‘I’ve got to be that or I fail.’
You might not be able to be a Ryan Reynolds, but achieve what you can achieve and be OK with that.
Though a few will fall off and quit, most people accept the limitations of their achievable goals. I think that is a good thing. If everybody could [look like Ryan], it wouldn’t be special.
