Scarlett Johansson's Avengers Workout Schedule

Besides working a hectic Hollywood schedule, Scarlett, 34, is also a mom to 4-year-old daughter Rose, meaning all workouts need to be fast, early, and efficient. She works out four or five days a week, doing sessions of 45 minutes to an hour that start before Rose is up - around 6 a.m. Hitting the gym in the morning is key to Scarlett's routine, "clearing me so that after work, I can make dinner and do bath and nighttime with [Rose] before preparing my lines for the next day," she said.

Scarlett Johansson's Workouts: Weightlifting, Plyometrics, and Reflexes

Scarlett has worked with New York-based trainer Eric Johnson since her Black Widow debut in 2009, and he split her prefilm training into three phases, each lasting three to six weeks.

Phase One: Honing the mind-body connection. With explosive swinging and plyometric (jumping) movements and muscle-burning isometric holds, Scarlett sharpened the reflexes and agility she'd need for stunts.

Phase Two: Strength training. Scarlett and Eric pushed her body to achieve specific goals, incorporating Olympic weightlifting and gymnastics to be able to nail moves that included a 245-pound deadlift, single-leg pistol squats, and a push-up series with a 45-pound plate sitting on her back. "What is the Black Widow able to do? Lift 500 pounds," Eric told The Hollywood Reporter. "We're trying to create this crazy comic book hero in real life with somebody who's normal."
