The Cooper Barnes workout is finally here.
It’s been requested enough times to where I could no longer ignore the power of Captain Man.
Barnes stars as Captain Man in Henry Danger AKA Ray Manchester, which he’s been in since 2014, but has also taken on some other roles in gigs such as: Reasons Why I’m Single, The Mindy Project, The Adventures of Kid Danger, and The Perfect Host.
Oh, AND Henry Danger: The Movie has also been announced, where Barnes will continue to strut his role as Captain Man.
So it’s time for US to learn the ways of Captain Man.
Cooper Barnes Stats:
Weight: (approximate) 181 lbs.
Age: 40 years old
Cooper Barnes is slightly below average height compared to other male celebrities we’ve seen at SHJ.
Although he does fall into a category with some pretty awesome members in it.
But, don’t worry either way.
We write these routines to be utilized by any shape and size.

Cooper Barnes Diet and Nutrition
And by that I mean I didn’t find a whole lot, and there’s not much on the internet, but I at least have a small amount to build an idea on.
Oh, and yes he knows his Instagram handle is “a little douchey”. He says so in an interview with Teen Weekly Insider!
He also tells Kristian Harloff in an interview on his Podcast with Collider all about his younger years being MUCH smaller as a kid.
In response to Kristian asking about him being picked on as a kid, Barnes states:
“I was not athletic in any way. I was not good at sports. I was a skinny kid. I was about a foot shorter than I am now.”
And even goes on to talk about how his feet were huge as a kid because he hadn’t hit his growth spurt in time to make up for their size.
No, not much about his nutrition, but it does show that he hit his growth spurt, tacked on a ton of muscle, and went on to become Captain Man!
He’s all about going after your dreams, and he tells Teen Weekly Insider:
TWI: Now for my last question: what do you want to say to those who wish to pursue their careers in Hollywood?
CB: I would encourage anyone to shoot for their dreams and not get discouraged by what anyone says to them. Prepare for a lot of hard work – much harder than you expected, because it is a very, very, very tough business to break into. But anything is possible if you push yourself and stay disciplined and never give up. The good and talented people eventually rise to the top. That being said, if you can see yourself being happy doing something else, there’s nothing wrong with working in a Waffle House. Everybody likes waffles.
Everyone likes waffles.
But, what it comes down to is Barnes doesn’t have the most shredded physique, and he also isn’t incredibly huge, but he does have a good base of muscle and looks stocky and fits his Captain Man suit.
This allows him to essentially eat what he wants, in moderation, and eat rather intuitively. If you’re going to try this, though, keep in mind it does actually matter whether or not you’re looking to lose or gain weight and you might have to at least take a quick glance into your caloric intake to make it possible.
Like Barnes, sustainability is key, so it really comes down to what is going to work FOR YOU.
We see a lot of celebs opt for a sustainable approach like this.
That’s why our Academy Nutrition Classes (Monks, Minimalists, SuperHumans, Vikings, Spartans, Hunter Gatherers, Greek Gods, Samurais, & Eat Fat, Lose Fat) revolve around helping you find the specific diet that is right FOR YOU.
Of course, there are a lot of reasons to HAVE the strict guidelines.
We’ve seen a lot of celebs opt for specific restrictions.
For example: Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart incorporate 80/20 dieting with big weekly cheat meals, Hugh Jackman, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hopper, and Terry Crews utilize intermittent fasting(something I use daily as well), 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.
And, that’s just to name a few celebs from each, by the way.
You can check out our Nutrition Pillars for more information and articles on all of the above and more.

Cooper Barnes Workout Routine Research
Similar to Cooper Barnes’ diet, his workout isn’t anything crazy or over the top either.
He does workout, and he definitely has a decent amount of mass, but it’s nothing that’s going to be unsustainable or incredibly hard to obtain.
That’s good new, by the way.
On his Instagram he has all of maybe 2-3 fitness related posts, one of which shows him utilizing a small little cable “total fitness” type of machine, in what also looks like a small corner-of-the-room home gym.
That being said, I don’t mean to say he doesn’t take his fitness overly seriously, BUT, it does mean his physique can be obtained without hitting Gold’s Gym Venice Beach for 3 hours a day.
In the interview with Teen’s Insider Weekly he’s asked what he is most passionate about and answers with:
TIW: Besides acting, what are you passionate about?
CB: I’m passionate about animal rights and the rights of those who are disenfranchised, in general. I also love reading comic books and going to the movies.
As you can tell, fitness isn’t the first thing Barnes thinks to mention.
He actually prioritizes animal rights, comic books, and even going to the movies as part of his answer.
That being said, we do also know that this training will prioritize mass gain (muscle).
So while it might be fairly basic, we will still be hitting the gym to gain strength and mass.
