It’s comforting that Bruce has an appreciation for yoga & stretching (very important!).
And to think all we see in Nolan’s films is a few push-ups. They could do an entire film OR comic-arc about Batman working out.
BREAKFAST: Oatmeal, a banana, two boiled eggs, orange juice or green tea.
MID MORNING: Tuna, four rice cakes with peanut butter.
LUNCH: Grilled chicken, jacket potato, steam vegetables, vitamin and essential oil supplements.
AFTERNOON SNACK: Cottage cheese, oatmeal crackers, fruit.
DINNER: Grilled chicken, fish or steak, steamed vegetables, rice or pasta.

HYDRATES CONSTANTLY BY DRINKING PLENTY OF WATER
They forgot “crime.” Batman also has crime “BEFORE BED.”
And Batman is like you or me! He too thinks rice crackers suck without peanut butter! Plus, I’m sure the extra protein doesn’t hurt with all that training.
Seriously though, you’d need like a butler or something to prepare all that shit while you’re constantly working out.
Good luck, would-be crime fighters!
