With the highly anticipated release of ‘The Batman’ starring Robert Pattinson dropping in theaters a little over a year from now we decided to release this gem of a workout a little earlier than anticipated to give you guys more than enough time to get into Superhero shape.
We’re actually seen a handful of “Batman” workout routines here at SHJ, but this one will be strictly calisthenics for all of you at home looking to use your own bodyweight to get into Batman shape.
We’ve had Robert Pattinson’s Workout Routine, our Batman Workout Routine, a Batman Inspired Circuit, and even other actors like Christian Bale’s Workout and Ben Affleck’s Workout at SHJ; not to mention nearly a dozen other members of the bat-family!
We really love Batman…!
Weight: 210 lbs.
Real Name: Bruce Wayne
Batman actually falls into the average height range we’ve seen among male celebrities here at SHJ.
And you’ll also see his name listed below being that we’ve already seen his stats here before!
Vegeta was 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 Morales only 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.

Batman Diet and Nutrition
**Keep in mind: this section will be nearly identical for each hero, unless I mentioned differently (for example someone like Hulk may get something specifically different)**
Every hero needs to still have a good diet.
Unfortunately we can train like them, but I don’t think any of us are suddenly getting their powers, or the ability to magically stop caring about nutrition.
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!
Curious where over a hundred celebs fall in their dietary choices ranging from High Protein and Keto to Vegetarian, Vegan and Intermittent Fasting? Want exclusive celeb meal plans? Check this out.

Batman Workout Routine Information (and Research)
We’ve made it to “the fun part”.
And, if you don’t know by now, I say that every single time we get to the workout routine research section for character workouts.
Now we all know The Batman origin story but it doesn’t hurt to go back over it. What’s amazing about Bruce is that he is a mere mortal who trained his body to peak physical perfection.
Batman is the superhero protector of Gotham City, a man dressed like a bat who fights against evil and strikes terror into the hearts of criminals everywhere. In his secret identity, he assumes the alias of Bruce Wayne, billionaire industrialist and notorious playboy; though “Bruce Wayne” is technically his real name, this Bruce Wayne is a disguise–that of the man he would have been had his parents not been murdered before his eyes when he was no more than a mere boy.
Let’s see what kind of powers and abilities the The Dark Knight is capable of ….
Here’s what his Wiki Fandom has to tell us: about Bruce’s abilities.
- Peak Human Strength: Bruce’s strength is at the highest limit a normal human could achieve. He was able to break through a thin brick wall
- Peak Human Speed
- Peak Human Agility
- Peak Human Endurance
- Peak Human Stamina
- Peak Human Reflexes
What is inspiring about the Dark Knight is that we all have the ability to train like him, all it take is a little hard work and dedication.
So let’s check out this special Batman Calisthenics Workout to get you started on your journey.
Check out all The SHJ Programs and start unleashing your inner SuperHuman.
Batman Calisthenics Workout Routine
5 days per week
The Batman Calisthenic workout is a 5 day total body plan that will not only enhance overall body control through movements we have seen the Dark Knight build his legendary physique out of, but will also enhance your strength and make you look superhuman.
As with any crime fighting vigilante Martial Arts are an essential part of the jobs so, we will also be providing Mixed Martial Arts resources available on the site so you can choose to sprinkle them into the routine as you wish.
Calisthenics / Bodyweight Explanation:
Calisthenics/ Bodyweight training is vital to building a physique that not only looks Superhuman but also allows you to perform Superhuman feats.
This is part of a calisthenics and bodyweight theme we have going for the next few weeks. I suggest also checking out our new Ultimate Calisthenics Workout and Guide for [The Ultimate Calisthenics Workout] and tons of other resources and workouts.
