The Hollywood star stays in shape by sticking to a healthy diet plan and consistently working out. The Ellen Hollman workout routine involves combined exercises. She also got more physically fit and even stronger for her role as a female warrior in Spartacus.
In an interview, the actress revealed that she actually performed her own stunts. And that’s not all — she underwent a rigorous training that both improved her physique and strength.
“Aside from a hell of a lot of core work with MMA and knife fighting, I recently discovered hot yoga mixed with ballet and weights. That combo calls for a little bit of grace, a lot of sweat, and a few occasional tears,” said the actress about her workout routine.
