Ben Affleck’s Batman workout routine has finally been revealed by his Justice League trainer Magnus Lygdback.
While Zack Snyder’s Justice League may have debuted to disappointing reviews and box office figures, Ben Affleck’s Batman remained popular among many fans. Of course, getting into prime shape for his role as Batman in Justice League required extensive training on Ben Affleck’s part.
In order to ensure he was in the best shape possible to play Batman for Justice League, Ben Affleck turned to personal trainer Magnus Lygdback to develop a workout routine. Now, Men’s Health has released a video that features Magnus Lygdback as he outlines the exercises Batman actor Ben Affleck did to get into top shape and explained why it was important for the Justice League actor to be as strong as possible:
“You know Batman’s carrying around this heavy suit all day on set, so we needed Ben to have the support he needed to carry that suit.”

Unfortunately for fans of Ben Affleck’s Batman, his time as the Caped Crusader has come to an end. Now, Robert Pattinson will play a new version of Batman in a film from director Matt Reeves, meaning Justice League will be Ben Affleck’s final outing as the Dark Knight.
Here’s the official synopsis for Justice League:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.
Justice League is now available on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital HD. Stay tuned for the latest news on Ben Afleck, Batman and the future of the DC Extended Universe!
