Gal Gadot had no idea what she was auditioning for when she went in and eventually got the role of Wonder Woman.
I don’t know about you, but I’m happy she got it!
We’ve been on a DC role lately after Scarlett Johansson with Tom Hardy as Bane, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, and then last week with Ben Affleck as Batman (which is where you guys voted for the Gal Gadot Workout Routine), but I’m happy we’re getting another one for the ladies!
Speaking of the ladies, I actually included two possible women for next weeks workout routine as well – so don’t forget to vote for who you’d like to see at the end of this post!
I actually have a lot of pictures to share of Gadot, and I think she’s quite fond of her own transformation! She’s gone from extra skinny model status to adding some beef, staying lean and ready to kick some ass!
In my opinion at least…
What did she do?
One thing I found when researching a bit into Gadots Wonder Woman workout routine is that she definitely utilized a few different things.
First off, we know women gain muscle and their bodies tone much differently then men. There’s been a fear for some women that lifting weights will make them look like a bodybuilder – and not that this is the topic of discussion – but I’m just letting you know it won’t happen while utilizing this routine! If you think back to ScarJo’s routine for Black Widow, she mentioned how much she loves “training like the men”!
Here’s what Healthy Celeb has to tell us about Gadots routine:
The smashing beauty who is all resolved to give her hundred percent to the role is embracing really intense workouts such as kickboxing, martial arts, kung fu, sword fighting, jujitsu etc.
The hot babe executes numerous cardio workouts to perk up her speed and endurance. However, she is more inclined to strength training to build up her killer abs and make her look more muscular.
What can we conclude?
I mentioned the fact that I knew she did multiple things for her physique. That much is obvious. Healthy Celeb even informs us of all the different things that she is involved with. They even share this to back that up:
Gal shares that one of the reasons why she has been chosen for the role is her insight about the use of diverse weapons.
The point is though, not only did Gadot begin incorporating weight and strength training into her routines, but she also is very active.
This is huge.
Think back to a full section I talked about in the Jason Momoa workout routine. Momoa is super active and was already fit before even going into some of his roles (where he’s even more shredded!). Well the same goes for Gadot. She’s skinny and lean and in great shape before even needing to put on some lean woman-like curves.
How do you combine the two?
It’s quite simple actually.
In order to get the Wonder Woman body, you’re going to need to stay active, train with full body workouts including things like pilates and high intensity training – but then also incorporate strength training to make sure you also have some nice sculpted lean muscles!
In an Examiner.com article they even give us a full quote from Gadot and tell us a little bit more about how she trains:
Despite her fragile build, Gadot served in the Israeli Army as a fitness trainer, and is devoted to a healthy diet and regular exercise that includes yoga, Pilates and weightlifting.
“I’m a big fan of a good diet and healthy lifestyle,” said Gal. “It’s important to eat a lot of vegetables, drink a lot of water, and stay active. I believe that what we put in our bodies will reflect on the outside.”
Well, while I may not be a yoga instructor (yet), we know I love to incorporate it into my daily routine!
No, dudes, it’s not just for the ladies…
In conclusion, Gal Gadot is an active badass that is [in my eyes] a perfect Wonder Woman – and if it’s okay with you, I think it’s time for the Gal Gadot Wonder Woman Workout Routine!!!

The Gal Gadot Wonder Woman Workout Routine
I will admit, it’s slightly difficult to make a program that also involves staying active. How do you tell someone that on one given day to “be active”. It’s not enough!
So, for that reason I’m going to give you two active days that can either be inserted with your own strenuous activities, OR a routine that I give you.
The Workout Routine
Training Volume: This routine revolves 3-5 training days. 3 days will be programmed for you, and you will also have 2 active days that you can either choose to provide yourself (tennis, rock climbing, hiking, etc. etc.) or insert my active day routine.
Extra: If you’d like to also incorporate Yoga into your regime I suggest the app “Yoga Studio” if you’re looking for an immediate start. I’ve been using it and think it’s amazing for just $3.99! (Does not count as an active day filler)
