Gal Gadot Diet and Fitness Routine

So This Is How Gal Gadot Carved Her Superhero Physique For Wonder Woman

Gal Gadot may play a badass superhero in Wonder Woman, but what most people don't realise is that Gal, 32, is somewhat of a superhero in real life as well. She's pretty much done it all. She's been a basketball player and a hip-hop dancer; she was even crowned Miss Israel in 2004. That's not all, though. Gal served two years in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) as a combat instructor, of all things. You can't get more badass than that.

At the Critics' Choice Awards on Jan. 12, Gal was presented with an award she has certainly earned: the #SeeHer award, and Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman director and screenwriter, presented her with this honour. It's no surprise that Gal was be the recipient of this award, as she has become an icon of strength and courage for young girls all over the world.

You can't become Wonder Woman, though, without being fit AF, and we can't help but be blown away by Gal's strong biceps and long, lean legs. Here's what we know about Gal's fitness routine and diet. If you're looking to make some changes in your own program, you'll definitely find some inspiration here.

She Worked Out 6 Hours a Day to Prep For Wonder Woman

Yep, you read that right. On Live With Kelly and Ryan, Gal told the audience she worked out for six whole hours a day to chisel her Wonder Woman physique. She did a combination of strength training at the gym, fight choreography and martial arts, and horseback riding, which she says is much harder than it looks. All the hours paid off, though, because she looks so toned and strong as the world's greatest superhero.

She Loves Rock Climbing

When she's not training hardcore for a film, Gal is known to enjoy rock climbing. The proof is on her Instagram, and she often rock climbs with her trainer, Mark Twight, the founder of Gym Jones. We're guessing this is where her ripped abs comes from, because it takes an enormous amount of core strength to hold yourself up on a rock climbing wall.

Protein and Greens Make Up Most of Her Diet

Whole foods are the name of the game when it comes to Gal's diet. Although she doesn't have any dietary restrictions, she and her trainer, Hayley Bradley, decided that protein and fresh greens were the most important components of her diet in order to get strong and stay lean. When she was preparing for Wonder Woman, she also drank a lot of green juices.

She Loves Using TRX Bands and Stand-Up Paddleboarding

Gal previously told Harper's Bazaar that, when she's not training for a movie, she loves using TRX bands to get in a good workout. Another one of her favourite exercises is stand-up paddleboarding, which requires an immense amount of core strength. No wonder she's got washboard abs!
