Training Secrets from Terminator Dark Fate: Linda Hamiliton #2

Linda Hamilton was 61 when she began her preparation for the role of Sarah Connor in Terminator: Dark Fate. She would need to be in the best physical condition possible to fulfill her expectation of living up to the physical capabilities Sarah Connor displayed in Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day—while making sure not to embarrass herself in the process (her biggest fear).

Needless to say, the studio was ecstatic with her outcome—both visually and from a performance perspective. After systematic medical and physiological assessments were ascertained, my diverse team and I developed and implemented a one-year performance training plan.

Core Training—the transition of power between upper and lower extremities.

Elevated Double Leg Curl:

Place feet on top of the stability ball with legs straight.  Elevated the body into a bridge, using the elbows to support the upper torso. Place heels on the ball. Pull back (curl) the ball to 90 degrees at the knees. Try 10 reps.

Alternating Hamstring Stretch (legs gripping ball):

Grip he stability ball in similar format as the reverse crunch. Alternate extending one leg, while holding ball with the other leg.

Remember, you should always consult your physician before beginning any exercise, diet, or nutritional supplementation program.
