Superman's Rachel Brosnahan in Two-Piece Workout Gear Flexes Her Biceps

"You DO NOT hesitate..."

Rachel Brosnahan is best known for her role in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. She also is a part of the DC Universe, starring as Lois Lane in the new Superman, filming now. Brosnahan met up with some of her DC Universe stars for a workout. Jennifer Holland shared a set of group photos on her Instagram. Holland captioned the post, "When the gorgeous ladies of @dcofficial #Superman invite you to workout with them and our personal trainer @paolomascitti at 6:45am, you DO NOT hesitate." How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Rachel Brosnahan stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Makes Time For Herself

Brosnahan shared her wellness secrets with Shape Magazine. She says that she makes sure to make time for herself. "Sometimes I find that the best thing for my body is to just take that extra hour of sleep and not work out. I'm good at making time for self-care when I get overwhelmed. I read a book or take a bath or snuggle with my doggies and watch Survivor. I'm a Survivor superfan. Or I have coffee with friends. One of my favorite things is to spend the time catching up with someone doing nothing but drinking coffee with them for hours and hours."


She Eats Healthy


Brosnahan makes sure to eat healthy, and shared her typical diet with Shape. "I start a typical day with a green smoothie in my NutriBullet, or I eat a piece of gluten-free toast with a poached egg and some avocado. For lunch, I have a salad or a sandwich with some kind of protein-like salmon, chicken, or quinoa-and lots of vegetables, and I really like roasted root vegetables with fish for dinner. I'm not a great cook, but I can do simple things. I just try to change up the spices."


She Drinks Bone Broth


Brosnahan tells Shape that one of her wellness secrets is drinking bone broth. "My stay-healthy secret when I'm working 14- or 15-hour days on Mrs. Maisel is bone broth. For the first season of the show, I was feeling very tired. And because I have a fast metabolism, I felt like I was dropping weight in an unhealthy way. Bone broth has collagen and fat in it, along with all kinds of vitamins and minerals, and I really think it helped me. I was the only person on our set who didn't get sick that season. I have to credit the bone broth."


She Tries New Workouts

Brosnahan tells Shape that she likes to try new workouts. "Exercise keeps me focused and clearheaded. These days, I find it difficult to have any kind of set routine because my schedule seems to be constantly in flux. So I'm working out where I can and when I can. It's hard to hold on to a gym membership because I travel so much, but I've had fun finding new classes wherever I am. I like to take yoga or Pilates or Spinning."


She Works Out With Others

As you can see from the Instagram post, Brosnahan likes to workout with others. Better Health states that group workouts have a lot of benefits. "If you've arranged to meet a friend for a walk or booked an exercise class, you're more likely to keep that commitment. Not wanting to let your friend or exercise partner down can be a great motivator to show up. And as your exercise becomes routine, perhaps after a few weeks, you'll both find it less challenging and will more likely stick to your commitment. On those days when you don't feel like exercising, a pep talk from your workout buddy might be just the lift you need. You can support each other."
