For her role in Green Lantern, which opens in theaters in June, Blake Lively toned up with the celeb trainer Bobby Strom. Here's a sample of the total-body circuit workout that Lively did five days a week (do the circuit three times).
Push-Up into Side Plank

  • Start on floor in full push-up position, balancing on hands and toes, body forming a straight line from head to heels. Do 1 push-up.
  • Shift body weight to left foot and left hand as you lift right arm toward the ceiling, rotating entire body to left. Keep hips and legs stacked.
  • Return to start.
  • Do 15 to 20 reps, alternating sides.

Jumping Squat

  • Stand with feet hip-width apart, elbows bent by sides with hands by shoulders, palms facing forward.
  • Lower into squat, then jump up explosively, reaching arms overhead as high as you can.
  • Do 15 reps.

Bent-Over Row

  • Stand on right leg, holding a dumbbell in left hand, arms by sides.
  • Hinge forward from hips until torso is parallel to floor, raising extended leg behind you.
  • Reach dumbbell toward floor then drive left elbow behind you to bring dumbbell by ribs. Return to standing.
  • Do 15 reps. Switch sides and repeat.

Stability Ball Crunch

  • Tie one end of a resistance band to a sofa leg or other stationary object close to floor.
  • Place a stability ball a few feet in front of sofa and grasp end of resistance band in both hands; sit on ball with back facing sofa.
  • Walk feet forward and lean torso back so that lower back is on center of ball and arms extend behind head.
  • Crunch up about 30 degrees, pulling band as you curl so that arms point toward ceiling.
  • Do 15 to 30 reps.

Is that all she did/does? That's more like a warm up before a workout. She's a beautiful girl, there's no doubt about that. I hope she is doing more for her personal fitness experience.
