Ben Affleck’s Tough Training Program for Building Muscles

Have you ever seen a skinny Batman? No, right? A Batman has to be muscular and lean and look like a thick MMA heavyweight puncher.

Affleck’s trainer, Walter Norton Jr., helped whip Affleck into shape for the leading role of Batman.

Affleck gained 225 pounds for his movie, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad.

Building up muscles is as difficult as weight loss. It does include a combination of diet and workout. Affleck’s nutritionist Rehan Jalali says that Ben Affleck’s diet for Batman includes the right type of carbohydrates, protein, and fats. It’s comprised of 35 percent lean protein, 45 percent carbohydrates, and 20 percent essential fats. 

Norton traveled weekly from Boston to Affleck’s location to create a new workout regimen for Affleck. His workout targeted certain muscle groups.

The workouts started with a warm-up on the elliptical machine, rumble roller, plank with arm extension, and a number of stretches.

Then he did a dumbbell farmer’s walk, alternating dumbbell reverse lunge, pull-ups, lateral squats, alternating dumbbell open curls, and bike sprints. 

Affleck will reprise his Batman role for Justice League Part One and Justice League Part Two, which will be released for 2017 and 2019 respectively. Affleck needs to ensure he maintains his shape and works out equally hard to accomplish the feat.

Walsh made Damon work on a cardio machine – VersaClimber – which works out the entire body as you pull up and down with your arms and legs in a standing position.
