'The Avengers' actor never misses her workout
A dedicated Johansson manages to hit the gym even when she is shooting. "When we're filming, we're basically in the gym every morning to start the day but that doesn't necessarily mean we're going 100% during each of those workouts," Johnson told WomensHealth. "You could say we follow a daily undulating periodization program, where the intensity fluctuates," he added.
