The One Workout Margot Robbie Doesn't Do

Margot Robbie is perhaps one of the most well-known actresses of our time. She convincingly starred as both Tanya Harding and Harley Quinn (in separate projects, of course) while sharing the screen with names like Leonardo DiCaprio and Sebastian Stan.

The Australian-born actress is known for roles heavy in drama and action, and that can require some intense exercise. However, she told Women's Health in an April 2021 interview, "When I'm not preparing for a role, I prefer to do workouts I really like, such as dance classes or playing tennis with friends."

The star also revealed her love of Pilates, which she tried after moving to Los Angeles in 2013. The actress said she "always feels better after a good stretch" and found that the popular workout really hit the spot. But unless she's training for a movie, the superhero actor won't be caught dead doing a particular form of exercise. Here's a look. 

You won't catch Margot Robbie pumping iron on her days off

It may sound hard to believe but unless she has to for work, Margot Robbie does not lift weights. "I found boxing sessions and fighting practice for Suicide Squad really fun, but quickly realized I wasn't so much a fan of lifting weights," the actress told Women's Health in an April 2021 interview.

However, personal trainer Luke Worthington told Insider that strength training is important. Aesthetics aside, there are good reasons for people to make sure they're pumping enough iron. Women's Health outlined the benefits of lifting weights for women, in particular. There is, of course, the fact that weight lifting can build and maintain muscle mass, which in turn helps with weight loss. But even more important are the impacts that weight lifting has on bones.

The National Osteoporosis Foundation revealed that 80% of Americans who have osteoporosis are women. This disease leaves your bones brittle and prone to breaking, leading to many of the serious injuries people associate with aging. Lifting weights helps strengthen bone density as well as joints, reducing a woman's risk of osteoporosis later on. Although Pilates, dancing, and tennis are all great workouts, most people will still want to log some time in the weight room, just to be on the safe side.
