  • Work-out designed by Ms Ashley Borden

It is not every Mickey Mouse Club alumnus who grows up to become the five-hanky hunk of The Notebook and elicits a "Well played, sir" from us for reportedly putting a bun in Ms Eva Mendes' oven.

We know it takes hard work and proper training. In the interest of removing some midsummer excess from our midsection (and becoming the star of our own off-screen melodrama), we've asked personal trainer Ms Ashley Borden for the techniques she used to chisel Mr Gosling's physique for various projects. This is his gym-free bodyweight work-out. No Nautilus or Cybex equipment was harmed in its creation.
