Apart from her acting, one of the most notable attributes of Gal Gadot in the Wonder Woman movie was her jaw-dropping physique! But even her regular diet and exercise regimen (Gal Gadot is a model) was not enough to get her to Wonder Woman bod status, and so her trainers formed the ‘Wonder Woman Workout’ to get her into the best shape of her life.
With the Wonder Woman Workout, she needed cardio and toning for strength, plus a protein-rich (lean meats), high-hydration (water and green smoothies), and nutrient-rich diet.
If you want to get a physique like Gal Gadot and be a real-life Wonder Woman, then here are the exercises that you need to start doing:
• Rowing – warm up for 5 minutes
• Easy Sprints – 5 x 10-second repetitions
• Mountain Climbers – 1 minute
• Bird Dogs – 1 minute
• Burpees & Broad Jumps – 1 minute
• Pull Ups – 7 sets of 3 repetitions
• Push Ups – 5 sets of 3 repetitions
You have the option to replace rowing with other cardiovascular exercises. The reason it was specifically chosen for Gal Gadot was to minimize her risk of injury as much as possible. You can also replace the Mountain Climbers with Bear Crawls if you prefer higher-intensity work. For Bird Dogs, you can do Crab Walks instead, and Knee Push Ups can be used instead of the traditional Push Ups.
Let’s be clear – Wonder Woman didn’t get her muscular figure from cardio alone. If you want the Gal Gadot bod, you also have to incorporate some weight training into your regimen. Start off with a barbell workout to tone the body and improve your strength and conditioning.
A quick workout that you can try for both your arms and abs consists of a circuit like this (start off with 3 repetitions):
• Push Ups – 30 seconds
• Planks – 30 seconds
• Rest – 1 minute
As you build your strength, you can work on something that’s more physically demanding:
• Cardio Circuit
• Arms and Abs Circuit
• Squats – 2 minutes
• Deadlifts – 2 minutes
• Pull Ups – 2 minutes
• Medicine Ball Training – 2 minutes
Make sure to rest after completing the circuit and before starting another round. Start with 3 repetitions of this cycle. These exercises are designed to help you improve your endurance and strength over time.
So now that you’ve seen her workout, are you ready to work on your Wonder Woman physique?
