Batman the Human

February 17, 2014

Now before I begin I would like to say that I have gathered most of the information I am stating from comics,cartoons,movies, etc. as a huge Batman fan from a very young age I feel in a way somewhat qualified to write this little piece on Batman’s training/diet since he has to stay in too notch shape in order to protect Gotham or Earth with the JLA(Justice League of America).


As you can see in the above image, batman has been portrayed in the early 90’s as a fit,buff, ripped human who uses almost every muscle to fight villains. The main muscle which he is well known for is his brain,which is by far the most superior brain in DC history,or maybe even in Comic books in general. There may be some arguments that would stir based on that statement,names would be thrown in the ring such as Death Stroke(Slade Wilson) or maybe even Tony stark(Iron man). But from what I have read and seen, Death Stroke would always call Batman “Tactician” if I’m not mistaken,due to the amount of thinking Batman does for every situation that might occur. You can say Batman is a master at real life chess. On the other character,Tony Stark, I would say they are almost Carbon copies yet Tony is an alcoholic who just likes to self loath in pity in almost every story arc I’ve read until he finds a new meaning,then he just suits up and the suit does all the talking. But Tony feels like he had a purpose halfway through where is Batman felt like he had a purpose at a very early age. I am very excited to see what the production companies will do when they release the new TV series Gotham, where Bruce Wayne will be a youngster still learning, where I believe Alfred will teach him a huge chunk of what he knows now. The movies made it out that Bruce Wayne traveled the world and learned everything in 7 years, but based on the comics that was only half. Remember Alfred had taught him a lot since Alfred was once a British equivalent to a Navy Seal; you get a little story from him in the Dark Knight about his military days.
So in order for batman to be out and and about,kicking ass and fighting crime,he would need to have plenty of rest. To have an insanely sculpted physique means rest to grow,heal and proper nutrition to help. I would like to say Batman parks the bat mobile in the bat cave by 5:30 am,usually 10 minutes before sunrise, sleeps for a Heavy 6 hours straight and gets up at 11:30 for a protein/good carb filled breakfast. Lunch would always be at a public place,either the office or a restaurant to show off his billionaire status. He is so freagin rich that he would have his chefs make all his healthy meals fresh and with different herbs,spices to his liking. If he has pulled a muscle he would eat foods,veggies and fruits that would help health inflammation and help repair muscles. The third meal would consist of a pre workout meal, since Batman has to be fast with his body and mind he would workout fast I believe. Lift heavy, lots of drop sets,reps to the fullest,in the 12-16 range and always with free weights. He would incorporate HIIT to mimic types of situations he would get in like jumping from roof to roof or swinging from building to building. This would obviously be done in the Batcave and would take 45 min for himself then another 30 for simulated combat training. Again with the billionaire status and his mind,he came up with a specific type of combat dojo in the Batcave that would simulate real life, I’m guessing once Alfred got too old to train with Bruce Wayne, Bruce and Alfred came up with combat ready robots that are highly agile and function as killing machines like the Shaolin Robit from the 52 series in DC” alt=”20140217-174026.jpg” class=”alignnone size-full” />
Then he would take a 2-3 hour nap at an undisclosed location where a sleep mud tub would be available, exactly like the Ones from Wanted that helps repair the body insanely fast from any type of stress or damage.


Once Bruce Wayne is at home he would spend some time working on his senses,training them,meditate play insanely high level mind games. Then he would spend some time listening to the police radio frequency,browse the internet and social media for any hints and where abouts of villains who either escaped prison or plotting something. Of course Alfred is there to give him a protein packed meal with tons of healthy carbs and electrolytes to wash it all down as another pre workout meal. Then he’ll start his 12 hour shift 20 minutes before sundown of course and that’s where we actually see based on the comics,movies and cartoons what he does the best! Also he would pack another meal just in case but would sometimes forget to eat it due to the insane amount if stress he might be on on some nights.
