The following disclaimer is included: Seeing Zoe Kravitz on the red carpet in her bespoke Oscar de la Renta gown, which had a corset and two cat-shaped panels, made me curious about her fitness programme. There’s no denying that she looks amazing in the role of the fabled feline, but how did she train for it?
Acting is something I’d never want to do, and being a fitness editor has taught me that lesson. It’s no secret that celebrities’ exercises are serious business. Robert Pattinson’s Batman workouts, Lily James’ Pam and Tommy makeover, and Alan Ritchson’s 30 pound muscle gain for his role as Jack Reacher are all examples of this.
Furthermore, it seems that Kravtiz had the same experience. Kravitz noted in an interview with Elle that: “It’s understandable that you want to look beautiful in a catsuit, but I also wanted to make it seem as like I can do anything in this movie really. As a result, I was forced to be a survivor.” In an interview, Kravitz said that she worked out for three hours a day after shooting for eight hours. “It was the best year of my life. To be able to see what I was capable of was a great feeling. Confidence was high, and I was capable of kicking ass.”
However, how do you do that? It was a combination of dancing, martial arts, and yoga that Anne Hathaway used to prepare for her role as Catwoman in Christopher Nolan’s 2012 film, The Dark Knight Rises.
At the time of her interview with Vanity Fair in April 2020, Kravitz didn’t go into depth about her preparation for Catwoman, but she did mention that she stayed in shape when production for The Batman was put on hold due to the Coronavirus epidemic. “Five days a week, I’ve been doing virtual workouts with my trainer David Higgins. On top of all that, the fact that I work out at the same time each day has been incredibly helpful in keeping me on track, as well as making it seem like a weekend because there are no workouts on the weekends for me to participate in.”
Celebrity trainer David Higgins has worked with Margot Robbie, Samuel L. Jackson, and Claudia Schiffer, among others, on their fitness goals. His workouts are based on Pilates, weight training, and flexibility.
Catwoman abs: a step-by-step guide
Would you like to have the abs of Catwoman? You’ve struck gold. Fortunately, Higgins has posted a three-week core regimen on YouTube that you may follow for free if you can’t locate Kravtiz’s identical exercise. On the first day of the programme, you can expect to do the following exercises:
Begin in a press-up stance with a broad range of motion from the shoulders to the elbows and a flat or forearm-on-the-floor weight distribution, depending on the plank variant you choose. Imagine drawing a straight line from your heels to the top of your head, all while focusing on your abdominal muscles. You need to hold a plank for this long to see effects.
Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor to begin heel taps. As you complete a crunch with your arms extended towards your feet, lift your head and chest into the air. Your right hand should tap the heel of your right foot before you tap the heel of the heel of your left foot. Repeat this as many times as necessary.
Lay on your side with your knees bent and piled on top of each other to do a side plank. Your elbow should be supported by your whole weight. Hold your hips up off the floor. You may either raise your top leg off your bottom and straighten it, or straighten your legs, stacking them on top of each other, and lift your hips off the floor to develop this exercise.
Superman holds: It only seems sense that the superhero ab exercise would include Superman holds. Lie on your stomach on your workout mat, with your arms and legs extended outward from your body, in order to do a Superman hold. When you’re ready, lift your arms and legs approximately six inches off the ground. In your lower back, you should be able to feel a stretch. Before returning to your starting posture, hold the pose for a few seconds.
