Get Wonder Woman Arms with Gal Gadot's Workout – Revealed!

Want to get Wonder Woman’s toned arms? Today, I've got a real treat for you as we dive deep into the world of Gal Gadot's workout for Wonder Woman 84. I’m your celebrity trainer Magnus Lygdback, with over two decades of experience in helping actors and actresses achieve superhero-worthy physiques, and I’m here to help you unlock the secrets behind the Wonder Woman workout.

Why Gal Gadot's Transformation Was Essential

Before we get into the nitty-gritty of Gal's workout routine, let's talk about why her transformation for Wonder Woman 84 was so significant. Just like it was essential for Ben Affleck to change his physique for Batman, when it comes to stepping into the shoes of a legendary character like Wonder Woman, it's about more than just looks; it's about embodying strength, mobility, agility, and, of course, that unmistakable Amazonian physique.

Filming a blockbuster like Wonder Woman 84 is like running a marathon. It takes months of dedication and effort, and staying healthy and injury-free throughout the entire production is crucial. Imagine the costs involved if production had to shut down due to injuries – we're talking millions of dollars. 

Gal Gadot had to not only look the part but also be physically prepared to perform all the demanding stunts and action sequences. That's where the right workout plan comes into play.

The Workout Split

Gal Gadot's transformation wasn't achieved through a one-size-fits-all workout routine. Instead, we followed a carefully designed five-day workout split. The beauty of this split is that it allowed us to work through her entire body twice a week. Now, that's what I call efficient training.

Full-Body Focus: Days 1-3

For the first days, we targeted different body parts but by the end of day 3 we’ll have worked out the entire body. This comprehensive approach helped build overall strength and ensured that Gal's physique remained harmoniously balanced.

Targeted Areas: Days 4-5

The remaining two days were dedicated to specific muscle groups that needed extra attention, such as the arms and outside shoulders. These targeted workouts allowed us to sculpt those iconic Wonder Woman arms.

Maintaining this five-day split over the course of her training was essential. However, it's important to note that as training cycles progressed, we adjusted sets and reps to keep the workouts challenging and effective. This adaptability is crucial for long-term success in any fitness journey.

The key takeaway here is that a well-structured workout split tailored to your goals can make all the difference. 

The Warm-up

A proper warm-up is essential before diving into any intense workout. It might not be as glamorous as the action-packed training sequences you see on screen, but trust me, it's just as crucial.

In Gal Gadot’s workout for Wonder Woman, we kicked things off with a five-minute session on the assault bike. Now, if you don't have an assault bike, don't worry. You can use any cardio machine you have on hand. The goal here is to get your heart rate up, increase blood flow to your muscles, and mentally prepare yourself for the workout ahead.

Now, I'm a firm believer in high-intensity interval training (HIIT), and Gal Gadot’s workout warm-up reflects that. After the initial cardio burst, we moved on to 20 seconds of high-intensity intervals with 20 seconds of rest, repeated for six rounds. This not only amps up your energy levels but also preps your muscles for the challenges ahead.

Whether you're training to be a superhero or just striving to be the best version of yourself, never underestimate the value of a good warm-up. It's your ticket to a safer, more effective workout, and it sets the tone for the rest of your journey.

Arm and Shoulder Exercises

Now, let's get to the exciting part of Gal Gadot's workout for Wonder Woman – her arm and shoulder exercises. We all know that Wonder Woman's strength is legendary, and Gal had to work hard to embody that power on screen. These exercises played a crucial role in sculpting those iconic arms and shoulders.

Alternating Bicep Curls: We kicked off with alternating bicep curls. Gal performed eight reps on each side for three rounds. This exercise targets the biceps, the front part of the upper arm. It's a classic move to build those arms of steel that Wonder Woman is known for.

Skull Crushers: Next up, we focused on the triceps, the muscles on the back of the upper arm. Gal did 12 reps of skull crushers for three rounds. It's a fantastic exercise for strengthening and defining those triceps, essential for both strength and aesthetics.

Bicep Cable Curl and Tricep Pushdown Superset: Gal Gadot's workout also included a superset, a combination of two exercises performed back-to-back without rest. For this superset, she started with 12 reps of bicep cable curls and then immediately moved to 12 reps of tricep pushdowns. This combination ensures that both the biceps and triceps get a thorough workout.

Isolated Bicep Curl Against the Wall and Lateral Raises: Another superset in Gal's routine consisted of 10 reps of isolated bicep curls against the wall, followed by 12 reps of lateral raises. This combination effectively targets the biceps and the outside of the shoulders, giving Gal those powerful arms and shoulders we all admire.

Remember, while Gal's workout routine for her role in Wonder Woman might seem intense, it's essential to find the right balance for your fitness level. Start with weights and repetitions that challenge you but are manageable. As you progress, you can gradually increase the intensity to reach your own superhero potential.

Core Training

Core strength is essential for any superhero, and Gal Gadot was no exception. We incorporated core exercises into her routine almost every day. 

The core muscles include the six-pack abs but also the muscles that wrap around your sides and back, providing support and stability to your entire torso. Gal's core workout consisted of a challenging exercise: the hollow hold. This move involved holding a specific position to engage the core muscles fully. She did this exercise for 45 seconds in four sets, ensuring that her core was not only strong but also capable of maintaining stability over time.

The Role of Nutrition

Now, let's talk about nutrition. You can't out-train a bad diet, and Gal knew it. If you want to look like Wonder Woman, you've got to fuel your body right. For the full lowdown on Gal's nutrition plan during Wonder Woman 84, check out my previous blog post here.
