Ryan Reynolds is not only an awesome actor, but he is also an amazing person. He works towards fitness constantly and prepares for each of his film roles with equal dedication. Here, we get to find out not only his recent workout and diet secrets, but we also get to know about how easily he accepts his flaws and why he won’t be doing many of his movie stunts on his own.
Planning the Workouts
If you want to look and feel great, you should try to plan your workouts like the Deadpool (2016) actor. He accesses online programs of his trainer Don Saladino whenever he has some time to spare.
He prefers online programs rather than meeting his trainer during early mornings. His advice to fans is also similar; you should plan your workouts like you plan your travels.
Sticking to the same trainer, if he is great, is another advice you can get as he has been sticking with Don for last 8 years and the results are quite excellent.
Accept Your Flaws
The talented actor also wants you to learn to accept your flaws. He recently admitted that he is not very good at cooking and knows it well. He even joked that if he takes up cooking, there would probably be a structure fire.
The Canadian actor likes to ensure that his meals consist of clean and whole foods. He also takes these meals at 3 to 4-hour intervals when he is bulking up for a role (which he is probably doing for Deadpool 2- 2018).
The Two Guys and a Girl and a Pizza Place (1998-2001) actor appreciate the dedication shown by Hugh Jackman to his craft. He admits that he can’t have a meal at 2 in the morning like the other actors. If he is awake at 2 in the morning, chances are something is wrong in his life.
Saladino thinks that the husband of Blake Lively is in the best shape of his life at the moment and the results of fitness attempts have improved over time. Now, he doesn’t leave the gym wiped out, years ago, he would have.
One of the workouts they do is reverse crunches as they boost his lower abdominal strength and don’t pose a risk of injury to his spine. Don also stays cautious and doesn’t overwork the abs. He believes that as many people judge the other person’s fitness by the abs, people often over train them. He doesn’t make the same mistake while training the stars.
The two best abdominal exercises in his opinion are deadlifts and squats as these exercises engage the whole body.

Not Doing His Stunts
Though Reynolds is training hard for Deadpool 2, many fans might feel a disappointed by knowing that he won’t be doing his stunts. He has revealed that he has been reducing the practice of doing his stunts since 2013 when he was injured on the set of Safe House.
Since then, he has relied on four stuntmen. While doing stunts in the past, he has also broken a few vertebrae in the neck. It was quite serious, and the doctor even suggested that he takes the help of stuntmen.
Well, we think it doesn’t matter whether the actor does his own stunts or not, we are still impressed by his current workout and diet secrets and are eagerly waiting for the release of Deadpool 2 on June 1, 2018.
