Electrifying as she normally is in her movie roles, Jennifer garner is an icon for women in Hollywood. She has landed roles in a series of romantic and fantasy films, such as 13 Going on 30, Catch and Release, Valentine’s Day and Love, Simon.

In 2003 she played the role of Elektra in Marvel’s Daredevil alongside Ben Affleck (her future ex-husband) and again in the spin-off Elektra in 2005. She was able to achieve these scenes of fight and action by following a strict exercise exercise mainly at body weight, such as push-ups, bodyweight squats, side planks, step-ups, barbell curls, and a host of other strength conditioning exercises. Garner and Affleck made Daredevil’s global box office hit nearly $ 180 million while looking good at it.
