Following other videos where he recreated the diets and training routines of movie stars like Jason Momoa and Mark Wahlberg, fitness YouTuber Will Tennyson most recently spent the day living like actress Gal Gadot, best known for playing Diana Prince, a.k.a. Wonder Woman, on the big screen.
With Gadot primed to reprise her famous role in the upcoming DC sequel Wonder Woman 1984, Tennyson decided to try out the workouts and meals that she shares on her social media accounts, to see just how hard she works to get into superheroine shape.
Tennyson starts off with shakshuka for his pre-workout breakfast; a tasty, protein-rich Mediterranean classic made with poached eggs, tomatoes, onions, peppers and spices, and a freshly mixed green juice, all of which amounts to 530 calories. And while the spicy eggs are a hit, he is not a fan of the smoothie. "It tastes like a Jamba Juice practical joke," he says.
Then it's time for the first workout of the day, a high-intensity circuit consisting of rows, bear crawls, backward bear crawls, burpees, crab walks, board jumps, pull-ups and ring pushups, all done for 10 seconds all out, followed by 50 seconds of recovery.
Next up is lunch: chicken breast with chickpea cakes and salad (566 calories). "I really like her diet, it's really fresh, I love fresh herbs," he says. Then, for a mid-afternoon snack, Tennyson heads out for avocado toast (260 calories).
The second workout of the day is a barbell complex, which requires Tennyson to do a series of different exercises including the Romanian deadlift, bent over row, reverse curl, push press and squat without putting the bar down at any point. "This is some sick cardio," he says.
For the final meal of the day, Gadot prioritizes vegetables with a hand-sized serving of protein, so Tennyson opts for some prepped shrimp with garlic mushroom rice (486 calories), with chocolate and ice cream for dessert (500 calories).
At the end of his day following Gadot's routine, Tennyson admits to having been pleasantly surprised both by the food and the quick, intense training sessions. "It just goes to show," he says, "you don't need a lot of time for a good workout."
