While watching Alicia Vikander climb up big things and jump off even bigger things in the Tomb Raider trailer, it was impossible to miss how ripped she's looking these days. She spent seven consecutive months working with Magnus Lygdback, a celebrity trainer and wellness expert who has worked with Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, and Katy Perry in the past.
We spoke to Magnus about his program with Alicia, and unsuprisingly, he said strength training and weightlifting were the big focuses for them. That's how she tacked on 12 pounds of muscle and earned an eight-pack.
"I would love to try to help women get into the gym and start lifting."
"I would love to try to help women get into the gym and start lifting," Magnus told POPSUGAR. "Every woman can do strength training, so get in there and you can do anything from classic bodybuilding or strength training to Olympic lifting. This is something I feel really strongly about. I work with a lot of strong women."
