Jacob Batalon Workout Routine and Diet: How He Lost Over 100 Pounds!

We’ve already seen our Tom Holland Workout and our Zendaya Workout, but now it’s time to bring in Jacob Batalon to join them.

If you didn’t already notice: Jacob recently dropped over a hundred pounds ahead of Spiderman: No Way Home.

To be more precise, Jacob began his weight loss journey in 2019 and lost 112 lbs. and continues to work on his fitness and nutrition.



From what we saw teased in Spider-Man: No Way Home we could be seeing some fun things come from Jacob in the MCU – so he is definitely well prepared for that with his new lifestyle changes.

Let’s talk more about what he did to lose the weight.

Jacob Batalon Stats:

Real Name: Jacob Batalon

Height: 5’5

Weight: (approximate) 191 lbs.

Age: 25 years old

Jacob is quite short – although it’s not THAT noticeable while acting next to Tom Holland.

He actually comes in as one of the shortest celebrities we’ve had on the site.

The average height falls in the range of 6’1-6’3 with celebs like Chris PrattChris HemsworthChris EvansAdam DriverStephen AmellClive Standen and so many more.

Guys around 5’10-6’0 are dudes like Brad PittMatt Damon and Jason Statham, but the ACTUAL shorter range is filled with guys like Mark WahlbergZac EfronKit HaringtonTom Holland and more.

Even taller than them are guys like The MountainJoe ManganielloBen AffleckJason MomoaRay FisherWinston DukeAlexander Skarsgard and a few others.

But, don’t worry either way.

We write these routines to be utilized by any shape and size.


Jacob Batalon Diet and Nutrition

In an interview with Men’s Health Jacob talks about what really kickstarted his weight loss and desire to start his transformation.

He discusses feeling sluggish and believing that it had to do with the fast food he was constantly eating.

Here’s what he says:

I decided to get into this sort of transformation, or this sort of journey, with my health and fitness at the end of 2019. Even when I wasn’t doing anything physical, I found myself getting sleepy at work and it was because of all the fat food I was eating. This one day I kind of just saw myself without a shirt on and it was just ridiculous. I could not believe I let myself get this far. That’s what sort of started it all.

From there he also talks about the fact that now he’s been sticking to a plant based diet that his girlfriend got him started on:

Recently, my girlfriend has actually gotten me into a plant-based diet, as well, and that’s really helped my body and I can feel the difference between eating a lot of meat and eating plant-based stuff and that’s really helped me, as well. I found a lot of light in the dark in the sense that a lot of people were suffering and I was fortunate and lucky enough to have found my health and all those things.

Clearly, having started in 2019 and continuing to lose weight and keep it off, means Jacob is doing something right; considering he’s been able to sustain this change.

We see a lot of celebs opt for a sustainable approach like this.

That’s why our Academy Nutrition Classes (Monks, Minimalists, SuperHumans, Vikings, Spartans, Hunter Gatherers, Greek Gods, Samurais, & Eat Fat, Lose Fat) revolve around helping you find the specific diet that is right FOR YOU.

Of course, there are a lot of reasons to HAVE the strict guidelines.

We’ve seen a lot of celebs opt for specific restrictions. 

For example: Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart incorporate 80/20 dieting with big weekly cheat meals, Hugh JackmanBenedict CumberbatchTom Hopper, and Terry Crews utilize intermittent fasting(something I use daily as well), Mustafa Shakir and Madelaine Petsch are vegansBrandon Routh and Frank Grillo opt for paleo, and tons of others utilize their own variations as well.

And, that’s just to name a few celebs from each, by the way.

You can check out our Nutrition Pillars for more information and articles on all of the above and more.

Jacob Batalon Workout Routine Research

Moving on from his nutrition and into his workout routine, we’re going to learn all about the varied training style Jacob has been using.

Right off the bat I’ll go straight to the source and share what Men’s Health tells us about his training over the course of this transformation:

Over the course of the next year, Batalon would lose 112 pounds thanks to a rigorous exercise schedule and healthier meal choices. Batalon’s gym routine entailed 90-minute workouts 6 days a week—the first hour devoted to weights, the last half hour cardio.

That tells us that we’re going to be training 6 days a week, 90 minutes each day, which is quote a bit of volume compared to what some people might be used to.

I personally like the 60 minute weight training and 30 minute cardio split, and do that often myself – but a lot of our Academy programs have varied training ranging from minimal 30 minute sessions all the weight up to circuit training, strictly cardio, or just weights.

It’s best to build your routine around what will be most sustainable for YOU.

We’re also lucky enough to have some of Jacob’s favorite movements that he shared with MH.

He breaks it down as:

  • Medicine Ball Slams
  • Rotational Wall Toss
  • Reverse Lunge Lateral Raises
  • Renegade Rows
  • Burpees

Here’s what he says, slightly joking, about the medicine ball slams:

“For some reason to me it just feels more dynamic than lifting a few weights. It also helps release a lot of anger.”

As for the rotational wall toss he says ““It’s a lot of obliques and make me feel like I’m really working my core.”

He’s also really into full body movements – things that will be able to hit multiple body parts at the same time.

Here’s what he says about the reverse lunge lateral raises and renegade rows:

“It gets your heart going instead of staying stationary and lifting a lot of weights. The full body movement is really what I’m into.”

“It’s a crazily dynamic thing for your body to do.”

And, finally, we also have to talk about the torture of burpees.

Jacob shares this about how his trainer tortures him with them:

“I really enjoy getting big quads. I focus on getting a nice-shaped butt. Burpees are something I was introduced to in high school but I never liked doing them. When I worked out with my trainer, that’s something that we would do constantly. It’s his way of torturing me, but in a good way.”

So for this routine we’re going to be training 6 days a week and you better believe you’ll see each one of these movements within a 60 minute workout and then varied 30 minutes of cardio to finish off each day.

Get ready!
