Infinity War is coming, and we need our Scarlet Witch.
It helps that she’s a total babe.
Elizabeth Olsen has been in a bunch of other roles besides Avengers (although that’s OBVIOUSLY the coolest one), such as Godzilla, Martha Marcy May Marlene, Kill Your Darlings, and a good handful more. That being said, she definitely stepped up her game and brought Scarlet Witch to life in a way I’m totally down with.
Basically I’m saying she’s awesome.
This is also a fun one to write because Olsen went into her training regime with the goal of losing fat and toning muscle. She wanted to be strong and lean! And, she did just that.
Elizabeth Olsen Stats:
Weight: (approximate) 126 lbs.
Age: 29 years old
Elizabeth Olsen is actually right at the average height for the women we see at SHJ. She’s not quite as tall as women like Gal Gadot, Jennifer Lawrence, Gwendoline Christie, Karen Gillan, Zendaya, Rihanna, and many more women that are above average.
She is however right at the average height.
But, this is just for fun.
Regardless of your height and weight you can utilize this routine.

Elizabeth Olsen Diet and Nutrition
Like I said, Elizabeth Olsen went into her Avengers regime looking to cut fat and build muscle.
That’s something we strive for within our Academy as well.
It’s something we refer to as a body recomposition.
To do this she teamed up with Dr. Goglia, who is a celebrity nutritionist.
He tells People Magazine:
“Fat is light and fluffy and takes up a lot of room, and muscle is dense and doesn’t take up a lot of room at all. She wanted to be dense, heavy and athletic, and she just really nailed it.”
Another thing People Mag tells us from Dr. Goglia is this:
Olsen was doing plenty of workouts and training for the action-packed film, but Dr. Goglia emphasizes that nutrition and sleep is the key to a better body composition, not exercise.
We say that all the time here at SHJ.
You can’t out train your diet.
We also know the importance of sleep and what it does for us as well. Well, hopefully.
Breaking her diet down a bit more, we find out:
For Olsen, that meant seven to eight meals a day, with no gluten, dairy or yeast. She would start out the day with a teaspoon each of almond butter and jam before training, and then follow that with a protein shake or eggs and vegetables for breakfast, fish or chicken for lunch and vegetables and another fish for dinner, with snacks of fresh fruit, vegetables and hard-boiled eggs throughout the day.
So I guess no intermittent fasting for this diet plan, but you can still feel free to check out all our Nutrition Pillars to see if there’s anything else you can pair to make this plan sustainable for you.
Elizabeth Olsen Workout Routine Research
So we know Olsen was working out a lot from the quotes above, but I dug a little deeper to find out what we was utilizing.
Livestrong tells us:
While Olsen is no stranger to the gym, doing everything from boot-camp workouts to yoga five to six times a week, Dr. Goglia emphasizes how important sleep and nutrition are when it comes the process of losing fat and gaining muscle.
We love yoga.
We even have a Jedi Path dedicated to yoga and meditation within The Academy.
But, another thing I want to point out is the fact that Dr. Goglia really strongly believes in focusing mainly on sleep and dieting. He states:
“The training is great, but the important thing to remember about training is that it makes you weaker, it doesn’t make you strong,” he says. “Training is inflammatory: It breaks you down. The other pieces are what make you stronger, and that’s the kitchen and the bedroom. So you’ve got to make sure your kitchen is in order and you’re getting enough sleep.”
So let’s focus on our yoga, some bodyweight training, and mainly zone in on our sleep and nutrition!
