Dasha Gonzalez in Two-Piece Workout Gear Shares "Workout This Weekend"

See her flat abs in a crop top and leggings during an intense workout session.

Dasha Gonzalez is getting her sweat on – in her workout clothes. In a new social media post the model and wrestler flaunts her flat abs in a crop top and leggings during an intense workout session. "Workout this weekend," she captioned the post. How does she approach diet, fitness, and self-care? Here is everything you need to know about her workout routine. 


Mixing Weights and Reps

"When we aim for 8 to 30 reps per set during our workouts, we're hitting a range that's good for making muscles bigger," her trainer, Cezar Bononi, explains in a post. "Let's say you're doing an exercise like squats. If you're doing sets of 8 reps, you're likely using a heavier weight. This challenges your muscles in a way that promotes muscle growth. But if you're doing sets of 20 reps, you'll probably use a lighter weight. This still challenges your muscles, but in a different way, focusing more on endurance and pumping up the muscles." He adds that by "mixing up the number of reps we do, we're hitting different aspects of muscle growth. When we lift heavier weights for fewer reps, it's like telling our muscles to get stronger and bigger. But when we lift lighter weights for more reps, it's like telling our muscles to keep going and not get tired easily."


Workout Buddies

Dasha is a fan of the workout buddy system. "It's Monday and I got to share a great workout with my girl @elisaayalaa at @bodysculptinggym this morning!!! I'm grateful for so much these days so remember to let your friends know how much you love and appreciate them while they are here!!!" Workout buddies are a great way to keep yourself accountable. 


Exercise as "Medicine"

Dasha views exercise as medicine. "Life is tough, but sometimes you've just gotta focus on yourself and dedicate some time to yourself. Exercise is my medicine and spending time with great people who love you helps. Check in your happy friends and let people you care about know how important they are to you. If you're on your health and fitness journey, I just want you to know that I'm rooting for you and I believe in you! You got this!!! Time to get off our butts and put in the work!" she wrote in a post. 



Dasha also does yoga. On a recent trip to Puerto Rico, she showed off her moves. Harvard Health explains the science behind the practice. "Researchers found that people who practiced yoga for at least 30 minutes once a week for at least four years, gained less weight during middle adulthood," they said. "People who were overweight actually lost weight. Overall, those who practiced yoga had lower body mass indexes (BMIs) compared with those who did not practice yoga. Researchers attributed this to mindfulness. Mindful eating can lead to a more positive relationship with food and eating."


Strength Training

In her latest post, Dasha does a strength training workout, executing a variety of exercises. According to the Mayo Clinic, strength and weight training help reduce body fat, preserve and increase lean muscle mass, and burn calories more efficiently. Strength training may also help you:

  • Develop strong bones
  • Manage your weight
  • Enhance your quality of life
  • Manage chronic conditions
  • Sharpen your thinking skills
