Natalie Portman’s 10-Month Training for Thor 4

When it was announced that Natalie Portman would be in “Thor: Love and Thunder”, many people were excited to see her back in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). But as soon as the first pictures of her on set came out, the internet went crazy.

Not for less, Natalie Portman went through a big change in her body, with her muscles getting much bigger.

Then, the pieces started to fit together, and we found out that the Israeli-born American had returned not only as Jane Foster, the brilliant astrophysicist and ex-girlfriend of the Asgardian warrior Thor (Chris Hemsworth), but also as The Mighty Thor, the superheroine Jane becomes when she gets the magical hammer Mjolnir.

Portman worked with a trainer for 10 months before and during filming to build up her muscles like never before so she could play a hero in the MCU. Taking on the role of Mighty Thor had a special need to define arms and abs.

Natalie worked out for about four months to get her body ready to lift heavy weights and avoid getting hurt. She worked with her trainer three times a week to build up her upper body. They did exercises for her arms, back, chest, and boxing. They also jumped and ran. On the other two days, they worked on preventing injuries by doing things like pilates-based exercises, stretching, relaxation work, and balance exercises.

Due to the pandemic, Portman did her first workouts at home. Once filming started, however, she moved to the gym.

In the same way, Natalie combined physical work with a diet based on the actress’s vegan lifestyle. She focused on eating more protein to get the extra volume she needed.

Every day, he worked out for about an hour and a half to two hours. His warm-up routine started at 4:30 a.m., when he did exercises with his own body weight, a Swiss ball, or a band to start the system. Some stretches were part of the warm-up, but I mostly did exercises that worked weak muscles instead of just stretching tight ones. By warming up this way, he made sure that his whole body was ready to go before he started lifting heavy things.
