The Ben Affleck Batman Workout


By Shekinah Sabrina Colcol, |

From flabby frame to an astounding superhero body, Ben Affleck have accepted that he is playing Batman to become the rival of superman on the much anticipated soon-to-be-released movie. Ben Affleck is chosen to play the new Batman in the now soon-to-be-released movie, Batman vs. Superman. Although he originally turned down the role for the fear of not being able to deliver, his preparations to fill in the shoes of the Caped Crusader is astounding as we have recently witnessed Ben flex his well-sculpted body. Achieving this superhero physique from a previously flabby frame takes more than just a day’s work, so how did Ben train for his role as Batman?


Training Routine

The Ben Affleck Batman workout is a 90-day program which consisted of sessions that lasted for 3-4 hours per day, 5-6 times per week. Being focused on full body workout, his workouts consisted of strength training, cardio workouts, martial training, bench press, squats, dead lifts, bicep curls, resistance training etc. Once filming began, he pruned his exercise time to 2 hours, performed his workouts 3-4 days in a week and inculcated 30-minute jogs thrice a week.


Since playing the role of batman requires one to possess great speed, stamina and agility, the heartthrob actor stopped at nothing in molding his body with these pairings that yielded the best results:

  • Chest and triceps on Monday
  • Back and biceps on Tuesday
  • Shoulders on Wednesday
  • Legs on Thursday
  • Arms on Friday


Ben Affleck is ripped! Committed to his diet and exercise routine, Affleck worked hard to be a convincing Batman.

Diet Plan

With this kind of workout, it is impossible to believe that a person is not using supplements or steroids, but as Ben’s trainer assures us, he would not jeopardize his reputation for he never works with clients who uses such. Affleck has put on 40 pounds after following a 5,000-calories-per-day meal regimen instead. To build up and repair his muscles, he consumed a minimum 250 grams of protein in a day. Avoiding junk food, anything with lots of dairy and oil and focusing on “clean chicken breast, clean vegetables, egg whites and brown rice and baked potatoes” with every meal five times a day was key to donning a perfectly chiselled body.


Now that Ben is in the works for his upcoming turn as Bruce Wayne in Zack Snyder’s “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” we hope that critics, even the social media, will relent and rave about his performance set for release on May 6, 2016.
