Ryan Reynolds is already prepping for his return in “Deadpool 2.”

On Thursday, Reynolds’ personal trainer, Don Saladino, shared a video of the “Green Lantern” actor doing his favorite ab workout on Instagram. According to the fitness instructor, this is in preparation for Reynolds’ return as the Merc With a Mouth in “Deadpool 2.” “@vancityreynolds performs one of his favorite ab exercises in preparation for #deadpool2,” Saladino wrote in the caption of the clip.

The routine, which targets the abdominals and core, consists of three sets with 10 to 15 reps each. The trainer suggested to those who want to do this that they should discontinue the lift portion once it becomes too difficult to perform. He also encouraged everyone to try it, emphasizing that his ab workout can be done at home.

For those interested, one can lie on the floor or a decline bench for the exercise. Keep the lower back flat and pull the legs towards the torso, then drive them to the ceiling. It is recommended that one stays under control and to not use any momentum while performing the exercise.

In an interview with Men’s Journal, Saladino shared the other routines that Reynolds, 40, usually does. “Ryan loves deadlifts, and he loves squats because he knows that’s how he’s going to make real gains,” he said.

Reynolds explained that while they work out to build an aesthetically pleasing look for the role, they were also focused on actual strength. “Most of it is self-preservation. You want to still be able to get up after take 50 of falling off some ledge and landing on cement,” Reynolds told Men’s Fitness about his workout goal. “As I’ve gotten older, falling on cement has become less and less hilarious.”

Reynolds admitted that he was unhealthy in the past and didn’t care about what he ate or drank. That is, until he was cast in “Blade Trinity.” According to the actor, he worked out for three months, six days a week, for the said role and stuck to a 3,200-calorie diet. After his hard work, he gained 25 pounds of muscle. That was the start of his fitness journey. “That time changed my life because it taught me you can actually do things that were previously impossible,” Reynolds explained.

Following “Blade,” he then starred alongside Denzel Washington and Sandra Bullock in “Safe House” and “The Proposal,” respectively. He was also offered the starring role in “Green Lantern” and the role of Deadpool in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.” “I’ve been a fan of Deadpool all my life, so I was gonna murder someone if it wasn’t me [who played him],” Reynolds joked about the role.
