TheActiveTimes: Stars Who Sweat for The Screen

Christian Bale

One of the most remarkable physical turnarounds in film history, Christian Bale went from muscular in "American Psycho" to emaciated in "The Machinist," and then back to buff in "Batman Begins." That last transformation, during which he gained 100 pounds (before losing 30 for filming), took only six months. Although he “couldn’t do a single pushup” when he started, his trainer Efua Baker bulked him up with “daily three-hour running and weight sessions,” according to an interview in People. His training included “heavy core training, plyometrics and resistance training,” according to Men’s Fitness.
