I must say I loved Christian Bale’s Batman. When I heard Ben Affleck was chosen as the next Batman I was disappointed. It’s not that I dislike Ben. He did a great job with Argo. He’s been in some good movies. He just doesn’t embody the character I know and love as Batman. Or, does he.
Pictures floating around the internet show that Affleck has taken his role extremely serious. He’s freaking huge. Look at those arms. Look at that chest. I must say I’m proud of him. It’s great to see that dedication. At the same time, I’m a little jealous. I want to look like that.
So, just how is he doing it? His wife wasn’t much help. All she told us was that he was on his second workout of the day and his biceps are now 17 inches. Impressive but we want more details than just that he’s doing 2 a days.
Reports from sources on the internet tell us that Matt Damon’s cousin Jamie Damon was hired to get Affleck in shape for the role. Jamie is a trainer at IPF or Institute of Performance and Fitness based near Boston. I’m sure they are getting a lot of traffic right now given all of the sightings of Ben Affleck sporting one of their t-shirts with his new 17 inch biceps.
This isn’t the first time Affleck has worked out with IPF. For his role in The Town there was a post on bodybuilding.com listing his entire workout. We have nothing quite so detailed for his Batman workout but one thing is for sure. If you want to look like that, you have to put in the sweat at the gym.
