Christian Bale is a versatile English actor who is considered one of the most influential people of the past decade. He is also known for his Batman roles where he got into top shape and transformed his body.
His stats are 6' tall and between 121-220 pounds depending on his role. He also has a trim 32" waist and solid 17" biceps. In this article, we will take a look at his life, roles, training/diet strategies, and steroid cycle.
Bale was born on January 30, 1974, in Pembrokeshire, Wales. His parents were English, with his mother being a circus performer and his father David Bale who was a businessman and animal activist. His grandparents were also in entertainment, with one being a stand-up comedian and the other a stand-in actor. Even though he wasn't much into acting growing up, his family pushed him into it anyway. He trained in ballet and had child roles in commercials so he went with it.
Bales moved around a lot as a child living in parts of England and Portugal. He was quick to tell people that even though he was born in Wales, he is English, due to confusion about his accent (which is not Welsh).
Bales started to get roles as a teenager, playing a British boy during World War 2 in Steven Spielberg's 'Empire of the Sun'. This role got him early awards and fame. Two years later he played in 'Henry V' and then a role in 'Treasure Island'. His first main role came in 1992 in the film 'Newsies' which bombed at the theater and was panned by critics. He spent the rest of the 90's playing various versatile roles.
After a role in the psychological thriller 'The Machinist' and ‘American Psycho’, Bale put his name on the map with his 'Batman Begins' role in 2005. He played Bruce Wayne/Batman and the movie made over $200M at the box office and was a critical success. A few years later he was back as Batman in 'The Dark Knight' which was directed by Christopher Nolan and made over $1B at the box office, followed up by 'The Dark Knight Rises' which also made over $1B.

He also was in well-received films including 'The Fighter', 'Ford v Ferrari' and 'Vice'. He is expected to be in several films in 2022. You can read his entire filmography click here
Oscar nominations and wins

Bale has 1 Oscar win under his belt, for best supporting actor, for his role as the half brother to pro boxer Micky Ward.
He also has 3 more Oscar nominations which are best supporting actor for 'The Big Short' and best actor for 'American Hustle' and 'Vice'.

Machinist and Batman transformations
Over 4 months, Bale went from 184 pounds down to 121 pounds to play Trevor Reznik in 'The Machinist'. The character is dealing with fear and paranoia and is unable to sleep for a year. To prepare for the role he smoked cigarettes and drank a lot of whiskey. His diet was coffee, a can of tuna, and an apple a day. You can read more about this here
He then had to play Batman, and for that gained all his weight back plus more getting up to 220. So he gained 100 pounds in total in about a year. He also had to learn Wing Chun Kung Fu and Keysi Fighting Method. To gain a bunch of weight initially he ate a lot of bad carbs including doughnuts. Once his weight was up, he switched to a high protein diet along with clean carbs, and was able to gain muscle mass combined with a lot of training. See below for more information.
The next year he had to lose 55 pounds to play a downed pilot in 'Rescue Dawn', then in 2010 he dropped 30 pounds to play a drug-addicted boxer in 'The Fighter'. A few years later he gained 50 pounds in 'American Hustle'.
Bale talked about his weight loss experiences in this funny video with Matt Damon where he discusses how he had to lose weight to fit into the race car in 'Ford v Ferrari'
Training and diet for Batman
The opportunity to play Batman is one that no actor wants to squander. Bale wanted to look the part and be at his best physically, this means lots of muscle mass and low body fat while also being fast and agile.
For this role, Bale trained in the gym 6 times a week for up to 2-3 hours a day. He did cardio every day while also improving his flexibility and muscle coordination.
We know enough to speculate that Bale used a 5-day split routine and he alternated large muscle groups per day, while also training muscles like abs almost daily.
As mentioned earlier, Bale has talked about his weight gain for Batman included junk food at first to get his initial weight up, but he then switched it over to healthy foods.
His diet mainly consisted of chicken, fish, beef, vegetables, fruit, sweet potatoes, and brown rice. He also took in healthy fats like coconut oil.
Bale needed help to gain 100 pounds for his Batman role and we can speculate that steroids were a part of it. Here is a cycle that he could have done during his transformation:
