He trained in martial arts

As expected for an action movie, there’s a lot of action in this film, and Gosling is at the heart of it. To make these fight scenes realistic, Gosling allegedly underwent seven months of martial arts training and choreography.

“There was an amazing stunt team that kind of showed me all these different styles of martial arts and then tried to figure out what would work best for me and worked for the character as well, so they kind of curated this style for me,” Gosling said in an interview with JOE.

He ate well

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, abs really are made in the kitchen. Unfortunately, no amount of training can compensate for a poor diet, and the visibility of your abdominal muscles is based on your overall body fat percentage – here it is how to calculate your body fat percentage and why it matters.

Unsurprisingly, Gosling’s hard work didn’t stop at the gym — according to interviews with the film’s makers, he ate extremely well on and off set. In an interview with Anthony and Joe Russo (known as the Russo Brothers), Anthony said EO (opens in a new tab), “we would feel very guilty because Ryan was on a very restricted diet for a long time, and there’s us, just indulging, indulging, indulging. I remember he finally got to the point where we were about a week away from filming, and Joe and I had a great pizza brought to the set. Ryan was just like, ‘You know what? Today I’m going to eat one of those damn pizzas.’ And he did, and he was very happy.”

He practiced several times a day

Again, double days are nothing new for those who are truly dedicated to the gym, but how the hell Gosling fit them into a busy shooting schedule, I’ll never know. In an interview with HEY (opens in a new tab) At the Time 100 gala, Gosling’s Barbie co-star Simu Liu, who also plays a version of Ken, was asked which Ken actor works the hardest to get in shape: “Definitely Ryan – 100% He’s definitely, like, gym in the morning, gym after work, a bit of a guy….
