Robert Pattinson, the world's newest Bruce Wayne, recently revealed that he's in the process of buffing up for The Batman. But what exactly does that training regimen entail? Here's how the English actor is getting ready for his next big role.
They say that abs are made in the kitchen but revealed in the gym, and Pattinson implemented a pretty particular method of eating to build a superhero physique.
In his own words, Pattinson is an extremist when it comes to his eating choices in that he'll go on a months-long junk food bender before it comes time for him to drop weight. Pattinson apparently took this approach for The Batman.
During an interview with Buzzfeed in October 2019, he claimed,
"I'll eat nothing but pizzas for months so by the time I have to diet, my body is like, 'Thank God. Please only healthy stuff from now.'"
He also mentioned that he had begun a process of bulking up for The Batman. For those unaware, bulking is a common dietary practice, and can be done by everyone from professional athletes to actors prepping for a role to an everyday person wanting to literally bulk up their body either in preparation for a muscle-defining weight cut or simply to keep extra pounds on their frame in general.
There's no one "right way" to bulk, though two of the most popular and well-known methods are clean bulking and dirty bulking. Those who practice a clean bulk gain mass by eating a caloric surplus — taking in more calories than their basal metabolic rate, or BMR. That's the total amount of energy one expends simply by being alive.
A clean bulk involves choosing healthier foods to chow down on. Think oatmeal and brown rice; almond and peanut butter; proteins like salmon, chicken, and lean beef; and healthy fats like avocados, olive oil, and full-fat coconut milk.
Those who dirty bulk, on the other hand, smash in calories from all kinds of sources the denser, the better. And from his interviews, that sounds like the route Pattinson took. Keep watching the video to see how Robert Pattinson got ripped for The Batman.
