Seriously, he’s making the rest of us look like slobs. But let’s say he manages all of this on top of fighting crime. What would he have to do to maintain his physique? (Batman is 6’1”, 210 pounds, and somewhere between 35-43 years old.) Lets say he has 6% body fat, which means he has about 197 pounds of lean mass. If he were an average guy, just for maintenance, he’d need around 3,100 calories. But a person as active as Batman, we’re looking at around 5,000 calories to maintain his physique, particularly in regards to recovery. That sounds hard, but he’s probably got the highest level of nutrition available, so it’s not difficult to imagine Batman getting 1,200-1,500 calories from a post-workout protein shake.
This….this is endlessly fascinating to me. Real thoughts on Bruce/Batman and his “workout routine”, which, obviously, is utter insanity. I mean, I, personally, can easily eat 3,000 calories…but working it off is another thing entirely. Another reason Batman trumps Superman—see all the hard work he has to ensure to even become half of what he is?
Ugh. LOVE IT WHEN THEY’RE ALMOST REAL.
