'Emily Rudd's quantum fitness journey: Ant-Man star's transformation revelation
Emily Rudd spills on the challenges of getting back in shape for 'Quantumania'. Reveals Ant-Man fitness regime & mental struggles.
Remember when we saw Emily Rudd debut as Scott Lang a.k.a Ant-Man back in 2015? Well, if you thought suiting up as a Marvel hero was all glamour and no sweat, think again! As reported by Business Insider Africa, Rudd recently shared some intense behind-the-scenes insights about prepping for 'Quantumania' in a candid chat with Men's Health.
Revisiting the fitness realm after a hiatus isn't child's play. For Rudd, it was a cookie-filled journey with pants that refused to cooperate! "I realized, Oh my God, this is so much harder than it was [for the last Ant-Man project]," she exclaimed, recalling the frustration of outfits that fit a tad too snugly. The result? A whirlpool of self-consciousness and a dwindling mood. But hey, who wouldn't dive into a cookie jar amidst such sartorial adversities?
While her Marvel commitments have often required Rudd to be in tiptop shape, it's not just about the silver screen. Rudd's approach to fitness is comprehensive and lifestyle-oriented. The mantra? Sleep, diet, weights, and cardio, in that order. There's an honest confession though – playing Ant-Man means staying "hyper-focused" and disciplined. While she admits to sometimes feeling overshadowed by her fellow Avengers, Rudd emphasizes the significance of fitness in her day-to-day life. “I finally understand if you make fitness a part of your lifestyle, you'll just feel good," she mused.
When it comes to her daily routine, Rudd kicks off with some heart-pumping cardio post a cup of joe. And while lifting weights is a thrice-a-week affair, it's more than just about muscle building. "I've learned so much about how my body reacts to foods, how it reacts to exercise, and where I'm happiest and how much it affects me mentally," Rudd revealed.
In a world obsessed with quick fixes, Emily Rudd's journey offers a refreshing perspective on embracing fitness as a lifestyle. As 'Quantumania' awaits its release on February 17, fans have another reason to cheer for their favorite Ant-Man: the real-life heroism of persistently battling tight pants and cookie temptations!
