Margot Robbie's Suicide Squad Workout Was Way More Intense Than We Expected

Margot Robbie's personal trainer has revealed what it took to get the actress in shape for her role as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad: every day the actress trained for three hours. Three hours per day. Yes, the amount of time that we'd spend having a long brunch with a couple of Bloody Marys or mimosas, Robbie spent honing and toning her body in the gym. 

In all fairness, you'd probably do the same if you had to spend the majority of a film in tiny sequin hot pants. Thankfully, Andie Hecker, who helped get Robbie in shape, has dished the dirt on all the exercises Robbie did.

Speaking to People magazine, Hecker said: "She was a total trooper, it was very satisfying to see her body change into exactly what she wanted it to look like in such a short time."

Robbie wasn't limited to just one kind of routine and did a combination of various exercises to tone and sculpt her body, including Pilates and ballet. In addition, she also did some weights.

"We did a lot of heavy-weighted, low reps of arabesque pulls hooked up to resistance pulleys, as well as arabesque lifts with heavy ankle weights in order to build and lift the butt," reveals Hecker.

"We also did a ton of side series outer thigh work, targeting outer glutes with high reps and low weights, to pull those muscles in and create a beautiful line from the waist to the upper thigh."


Hecker also says that they did a mix of "non-bulking cardio" which entailed Robbie doing jump rope, rebounder and ballet jumps. Hecker says these are the "most challenging forms of cardio I've ever come across". Noted, we'll be doing those during our next workout then (we might need to upgrade our Bkr water bottle to a large, mind).


Speaking to, according to Hecker, Robbie wasn't restricted to a low-calorie diet as she still needed to look like a "sexy badass". Mission accomplished we think.
