It’s comforting that Bruce has an appreciation for yoga & stretching (very important!).

Batman Begins

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.

Now…

DIET

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.

BEFORE BED: Protein shake.

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!

Seriously, I'm not gay....

  1. This post is really great. Now I feel the need to go out and get some exercise, as opposed to my usual staring at a computer screen all day. Though Bruce may want to lay off a bit on the carbs, as protein right after workouts builds muscle much more quickly. Great information overall, however.
    By the way (I’m just curious), what are your opinions regarding the new series of Doctor Who?

    Protein is what builds the muscle but carbohydrates make the muscle look fuller and replenishes energy which is why Bruce Wayne who trains so much and so hard, needs it a lot in his daily diet.

  3. What I don’t get is why Batman feels the need to take the essence of plant fragrances (essential oils)
