Ben Affleck Batman Workout

Affleck Gained Over 20 Pounds for Batman Role

You may have been a little shocked when they announced Ben Affleck landed the lead role in the new Batman movie. After all, Ben Affleck? As Batman? People were even MORE shocked when the first previews and images from the movie were being released and they saw how ripped Ben Affleck had gotten for his role so quickly.

When Ben got the call, shooting was to start in less than 8 weeks. He was told he would need to gain at least 20 pounds of muscle before shooting. Somehow Ben managed to gain all that weight and showed up looking fitter than ever for shooting. His amazing muscle gain made excited our curiosity and we dug around to see what the secret was. After some digging, we discovered Ben’s complete workout routine and diet plan and will be revealing it here!

“The working out is the easy part. There are only so many ways you can move your bicep up and down, what it really comes does to is following a plan, and making sure your giving your body exactly what it needs to do what you want….grow muscle. You basically need to pump your body with the right stuff, help it grow, and then lift heavy 3-4 times a week and you will explode. Apart from dieting plan…..which basically just consisted of eating good food and cutting out all junk food…..I used a 2 stack series of workout supplements to gain the extra weight, Formula T-10 and Alpha Fuel X. Without the supplements I would not have gained a pound, because of all the junk food I cut out of my diet, I would have just lost weight without them.”
