What did Alicia Vikander do to prepare for the shooting of the "Lara Croft"

    The premiere of the next part of "Lara Croft" will take place in March. Training of the actress, performing the title role in the film, and her meal plan became available to the general public.

    Action adventure has given rise to a whole universe called "Lara Croft". So, first the film "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" was released in 2001 with Angelina Jolie in the lead role, in 2003 came the second part (after which the actress has refused to participate in the sequel). One of the main visual lures of the film has always been the body of Lara Croft - attractive, sporty, pretty pumped over. Shooting of the last part of the film took place in South Africa from January to June last year, and Swedish coach Magnus Ligdbek was a "co-author" of a stunning body of actress Alicia Vikander. He and Alicia are compatriots that certainly helped them find a common language in training. "The main goal was to speed up the metabolism to work every muscle, and Alicia coped - said Magnus in an interview with Hollywood reporter.

     

     

    The actress will have to perform acrobatics, swim under the water and climb the steep walls of the cave, so the preparation was varied: martial arts, klaymbing, shooting a crossbow. The plan was based on two main cycles - building muscle and visual study, or, as they say in the fitness environment - drying. This requires products containing alcohol, sugar and fast carbohydrates to be excluded from the diet. Here's how Alicia's rough meal plan in the muscle building phase looked like:

    Breakfast: 4 eggs (omelet frittata, poached), half avocado coffee.

    Snack: sashimi, octopus grilled chicken.

    Lunch: chicken, fish, beef, slightly brown rice, quinoa or yam, 30 g of mineral fats (such as coconut oil or olive oil, avocado).

    Second snack: the same as in the first.

    Dinner: the same as lunch. 

    70% of success depends on the supply and training, and much else - it's your individual characteristics and genetics, - Magnus Ligdbek

    You can see the result of training under the direction of Magnus - photos of Alicia in a red bikini spread all over the Internet.
