Liza Soberano is preparing to take on bad guys as “Darna”.
After being chosen to play the iconic super heroine, Liza has begun working out to get her body in shape to play the role.
From her Instagram account, Liza posted photos of herself in the gym, doing various workouts and gym exercises.
Liza captioned her post with the following quote: “If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you. #DarnaTraining”
Here are other photos Liza included in the post:
From her photos, it seems that Liza’s current training regime is focused on building her cardio and upper body strength. Boxing, rope exercises, and planking all strengthen the core muscles and improve cardiovascular endurance.
Liza accepted the role of Darna last year, and she’s ready to star in the upcoming movie which has yet to reveal a release date.
Erik Matti will serve as the director for the film. In a quote from last year, Matti said that Darna will be a coming-of-age film not only for Darna but also for Liza becoming a serious actor.
Darna was last played on-screen by Marian Rivera in 2009, who was 24 at the time. At 20 years old, Liza will be the youngest to play the Pinay super heroine.
