Would You Like to Have a Body Like Gal Gadot?
‘How do you get a body like Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot?’
This is a question we get asked more than most by hundreds of female clients who come to Ultimate Performance with their own body transformation goals.
At Ultimate Performance, we are experts at helping turn corporate professionals into real life superheroes like Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot, in particular, who has become an icon for women everywhere as the super-strong DC Comics character.
Any superhero will need to cope with the weight of the world on their shoulders, so use this workout to ensure you are strong enough. To make sure you are ready, make shoulders and back part of your plan of attack.
Shoulders set the scene for any aesthetic upper body. The back muscles are like our shields strengthening our bodies.
It’s 2020 – strong is sexy.
Like any battle, you want to be in and out, making maximum impact along the way. This workout is designed to be efficient and effective. We pair sets and use compound movements to do your workouts justice.
Why This Workout Works
The rack pull – A compound movement using the major muscles in your posterior chain. The rack pull is a movement with high strength potential and which allows you to build a back of beauty. The rack pull not only strengthens the back but helps your posture and the way you stand too.
The shoulder press – This exercise is performed at a slight angle to protect shoulder health and allows us to load the movement.
Our next two series include three exercises each to keep you moving and take advantage of the superior work capacity women possess.
The back works in multiple planes and we want to take advantage of this to get everything we can from our workout.
The V-grip pulldown is used to stretch the lat through a vertical plane and the row is used to focus on pinching the shoulder blades together. Using both angles will leave no room for weakness.
The shoulders are made up of three muscle heads, each targeted by movements in different directions, so we need multiple plans of attack to develop them fully. We have included the lateral raise, face pull and cable upright row to work on each of these effectively.
Keep the rest to 45-60 seconds to maintain intensity.
Add this workout to routine to have people turning their heads saying, “Who’s that Gal?”:
