Who doesn’t want to become Brock?
Alright, maybe you don’t compared to some other superheroes, but I’m obsessed with Pokemon.
Like the last time their was a big Pokemon release (Let’s Go Pokemon was the last one I’m referring to; which I beat in like 30 hours I might add), I’m ready to get some Pokemon goodness on the site.
If you didn’t know, Pokemon Masters (mobile app) just launched this last week, and it’s incredible. It still has that typical Pokemon grind, but it’s well worth it to power up your Pokemon.
Being that it’s not as easy to include Pokemon stuff on a workout site, I’ve decided it’s time for something new.
We saw Misty last time, and I based her workout around people who were trying to cosplay as here. Now I’m back for Brock and I’m actually officially announcing a new category specifically for Cosplay Themed Workout Routines.
Boom! Get hyped.
Height: (Fan Guesstimates) 5’3-5’5
Weight: (Fan Guesstimates) 150-165
Real Name: Brock
We have to keep in mind that Brock is only around 16 years old.
I’m also going to compare him to some other characters in our regular character workout category for now (until we have more cosplay themed workouts).
Vegeta were tied Wolverine for the shortest spot among comic characters we’ve seen at 5’3, prior to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles coming in at 5’2, (and Gimli even shorter) – but Damian Wayne (Robin) is only 5’4. Goku isn’t that tall either, though, standing only 5’7, with Miles Moralesonly an inch above him.
We’ve had Superman and Eddie Brock’s Venom at 6’3, and Captain America, Scorpion and Batman at 6’2, and Carnage at 6’1. Thor and Cyborg are towering over them at 6’6, Thanos and King right there with them at 6’7, Bane at 6’8, and Deathstroke right below at 6’5, and Black Manta at 6’4.
But, don’t worry if you’re not the same height or weight range.
We write these routines to be utilized by anyone and everyone.

Brock Diet and Nutrition
This is normally where (in the character workouts at least) I’d throw you guys a nice copy paster to give you some links to awesome dietary guidelines.
The celebrity workouts get their own custom planning based around what that celebrity does, but the characters are very contingent on specific goals/starting points.
The same is going to be done here, but I’m going to be making some changes to help you out a little bit more.
So I’m going to start by suggesting what I think is the best Superhero Program for this cosplay if you choose to step it up a notch.
Of course, you can really step it up a notch and join our Academy to get access to everything we have to offer, but if not, you might want to check out The Program Shop for other options or even take The Program Selection Quiz to help you out.
Either way, my suggestion would be: The Cut and Shred Vol. 2 Program.
We’ve seen Brock shirtless and he’s lean and toned (which we’ll talk about some more in the next section) and I think regardless of your starting this program is definitely the one to get you there.
But, if you’d like to build your own diet plan, I also have some more links that’ll help you do just that.
Which brings us to our information from the character workouts:
You can’t out train your diet, so I want to still give some pillars for nutrition.
You can start by checking out The Nutrition Pillars on the site, but I’ll break down some more information for you guys as well.
Guys like Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart incorporate 80/20 dieting with big weekly cheat meals, Hugh Jackman, Tom Hopper, Benedict Cumberbatch and Terry Crews utilize intermittent fasting (something I use daily as well), Ariana Grande, Mustafa Shakir and Madelaine Petsch are vegans, Brandon Routh and Frank Grillo opt for paleo, and tons of others utilize their own variations as well.
It’s all about sustainability.
AND, there are a thousand different ways to reach your goals, so finding the most sustainable way is what’s important.
Which is why our Academy utilizes multiple different Nutrition Classes (Greek Gods, Vikings, Spartans, Hunter Gatherers, Monks, Samurais, Minimalists, SuperHumans) to allow people to choose what is right for YOU!

Brock Cosplay Workout and Appearance Information
This is the part where we have some fun with it.
Normally I’d break it down by the character’s powers and abilities, but instead we’re going to specifically be looking at their appearance and basing our workout and judgement on that.
So the best place to start is still Brock’s Wiki page, which describes his appearance as such:
Brock’s most notable feature about his appearance is his eyes naturally appear closed. The rare times people see them open are when they are forced open unnaturally, such as these examples from what happened in the anime: a hit from Charmander’s Flamethrower in The Ninja Poké-Showdown, when being hit in the back of the head by Arbok’s tail in Who Gets to Keep Togepi?, and when he makes a face for Larvitar in A Crowning Achievement. This has been the center of fan attention for a long time. He also has spiky brown hair and tan skin, notably darker than the skin of any other major character in the anime (until Iris in the Best Wishes series).
Along with Tracey, Cilan, and Kiawe, Brock is the tallest of Ash’s traveling companions and the closest to looking like an adult. Next to actual adult characters, however, it is clear that he is still a teenager. Not counting temporary outfits, he has worn three different outfits, all of which have had the colors orange, green and brown with blue shoes.
So we have three key areas to hit when it comes to dressing and looking the part for our cosplay:
- Eyes closed [in pictures at least].
- Spiky hair
- Orange, green and brown attire (picture below is the OG Brock attire) and blue shoes
And since this is Superhero Jacked, we are going to be shooting for that ripped look Brock sports in the first picture I shared and the one above in his Sygna Suit from Pokemon Masters.
If you’ve played Masters you’ll also know that his Sync Move has him shirtless with a shredded physique and six-pack as well.
I’ll admit that if this was a regular character workout I’d likely be forcing you to train using rocks, but since this is our first ever addition to our new cosplay workout/guide series, we’ll keep it strictly revolving around looking like Brock!
But before we get into that, let’s finish off with a brief biography for Brock for the newcomers or people coming who have maybe played some Pokemon but aren’t familiar with him:
Brock is originally the Gym Leader of Pewter City Gym but he decided to follow his dream to become the greatest Pokémon Breeder he can be. After his defeat from Ash Ketchum, he quickly gave up his title. He accompanied Ash on his journey for quite some time, all while trying to live up to his goal. He currently wishes to be a great Pokémon Doctor.
With Misty, Brock is one of Ash’s original companions who is a recurring character (and an awesome one at that) throughout the series.
I’m sure if you’ve played some of the games you’ve likely went head to head against his Rock Type characters like Oynx!

There’s obviously a ton of ways you could obtain this slim and toned physique, but I’ll be programming you something that anyone can start with that’ll consist of some cardio and full body training.
