• Evangeline Lilly talks about her physical pain of 26 years
  • She portrayed Hope Pym's character in "Ant-Man and the Wasp"
  • Ant-Man 3 is slated to release on February 17, 2023

Canadian actress Evangeline Lilly -- who portrayed Hope Pym's character in "Ant-Man and the Wasp" -- took to Instagram on Wednesday to share her beach workout for "Ant-Man 3."

Alongside her 9-minute training video at a beach, Lilly also reflected on her physical pain. She first stated that the training video "is not for instructional purposes and one should seek professional guidance."

"I am just a beginner in this technique as you can probably tell from how long it takes me to get my footing set up," she noted.

Explaining her physical injuries, Lilly wrote: "I have spent a good part of the past two years in bed struggling through a very serious physical breakdown. Now I need to rebuild my strength in order to be able to bring the Wasp back to life again. In order to build strength, I need a strong base. My base is so compromised from decades of injury, misalignment, compensation, and over-working."

The actress also spoke about Eric Goodman’s Foundation Training, which helps overcome physical pain. The foundation helps people with series of body-weight exercises, ensuring a path to wellness.

"So, that is where I am starting - with my foundation. While the movements seem simple, Eric Goodman’s Foundation Training exercises are rebuilding my whole structure from the ground up," she stated. "Lots of tiny details - spread your toes, outside edges of the feet parallel, three points of contact on the foot, breath into your ribs front and back and sides, lift the tip of the skull, etc - are what make his postural exercises so uniquely effective."

Lilly said that after 26 years of lower back pain, injury and weakness, she is "starting to feel strength coming into that area of my body again and it feels amazing!"

"My heart is so full of gratitude for Eric’s research, dedication and passion to share his theories with the world. And I am so grateful that he will hopefully help me be able to do justice to this epic heroine one more time," she said.

"Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania" is slated to release on February 17, 2023.
