It’s time for Beast Boy’s workout!
Not only is he awesome, but he will also grow our Young Justice character list as well!
We’ve been on some Young Justice themed week’s in the past, but really this week I’m just simply jumping back to Marvel and DC because we got sidetracked by some awesome anime inspired workouts last week.
Although, there is a chance we’ll just start seeing both…
That being said, for now we’re going to stick to focusing on Beast Boy.
We actually have seen another Beast Boy…in a sense..when we saw Ryan Potter’s workout routine that he used to become him!
Beast Boy Stats:
Weight: 150 lbs
Real Name: Garfield Logan
Beast Boy’s height and weight could also obviously be considered variable.
That tends to be the case when you can change forms…
Vegeta were tied Wolverine for the shortest spot among comic characters we’ve seen at 5’3, prior to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles coming in at 5’2, (and Gimli even shorter) – but Damian Wayne (Robin) is only 5’4. Goku isn’t that tall either, though, standing only 5’7, with Miles Morales only an inch above him.
We’ve had Superman and Eddie Brock’s Venom at 6’3, and Captain America, Scorpion and Batman at 6’2, and Carnage at 6’1. Thor and Cyborg are towering over them at 6’6, Thanos and King right there with them at 6’7, Bane at 6’8, and Deathstroke right below at 6’5, and Black Manta at 6’4.
But, don’t worry if you’re not the same height or weight range.
We write these routines to be utilized by anyone and everyone.

Beast Boy Diet and Nutrition
**Keep in mind: this section will be nearly identical for each hero, unless I mentioned differently (for example someone like Hulk may get something specifically different)**
Every hero needs to still have a good diet.
Unfortunately we can train like them, but I don’t think any of us are suddenly getting their powers, or the ability to magically stop caring about nutrition.
You can’t out train your diet, so I want to still give some pillars for nutrition.
You can start by checking out The Nutrition Pillars on the site, but I’ll break down some more information for you guys as well.
Guys like Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart incorporate 80/20 dieting with big weekly cheat meals, Hugh Jackman, Tom Hopper, Benedict Cumberbatch and Terry Crews utilize intermittent fasting (something I use daily as well), Ariana Grande, Mustafa Shakir and Madelaine Petsch are vegans, Brandon Routh and Frank Grillo opt for paleo, and tons of others utilize their own variations as well.
It’s all about sustainability.
AND, there are a thousand different ways to reach your goals, so finding the most sustainable way is what’s important.
Which is why our Academy utilizes multiple different Nutrition Classes (Greek Gods, Vikings, Spartans, Hunter Gatherers, Monks, Samurais, Minimalists, SuperHumans) to allow people to choose what is right for YOU!
Curious where over a hundred celebs fall in their dietary choices ranging from High Protein and Keto to Vegetarian, Vegan and Intermittent Fasting? Want exclusive celeb meal plans? Check this out.
And then we built The SHJ Legacy Program to help you achieve it!

Beast Boy Workout Routine Research
We’ve made it to “the fun part”.
And, if you don’t know by now, I say that every single time we get to the workout routine research section for character workouts.
First and foremost, here’s a bit of a quick snippet bio from Beast Boy’s Wiki Fandom page:
As a child, Garfield Logan contracted a rare illness called Sakutia and was cured by a serum from a green monkey. This serum had the unintended effect of turning his skin and hair green and gave him the ability to change into any animal form.
I’ll tell you right now that I’m not going to be teaching you how to change into any animal forms.
This routine also won’t be built around any specific animals strengths or weaknesses, but rather ALL of them, considering Beast Boy can be ALL of them.
Even that snippet basically tells us his powers and abilities, but we’re going to need to go into a bit more depth to really see what we’re working with here.
His Wiki Fandom continues with:
Unique Physiology: As a young boy, Gar Logan contracted with a rare illness called Sakutia and was cured by a serum from a green monkey. This serum had the unintended effect of turning his skin and hair green but gave him the ability to change into any animal form.
- Terrestrial Metamorph: Beast Boy has the ability to morph into any animal he knows of. He can change into extinct animals and even animals from different planets. When he changes, it only takes a couple of seconds. It does not matter how big or small. It does not put strain on him to do this. He can stay in an animal’s form indefinitely. He has changed into multiple animals such as a swarm of fireflies and a group of barnacles. The only problem is no matter what form he takes the animal’s skin and hair color will always be green. Beast Boy can also change into a hybrid, which has all the animals’ powers rolled into one. He cannot control this so he does not turn into a hybrid unless absolutely needed. He has demonstrated the ability to transform into animals many times larger than their actual forms: among others, he has been seen transforming into a human-sized tarantula and a giant snake. He has also been seen transforming into mythical animals such as a phoenix and a dragon. Whether this is a progression of his abilities or a new power altogether is unknown.
- Animal Mimicry: Beast Boy has the power to mimic the abilities of any animal he knows of while he is in their form. The ability apparently gives him intuitive understanding of the animals and what abilities they have that may be useful in the situation.
- Animal Empathy
If you include his overall abilities from his Terrestrial Metamorphasis you can add in:
- Superhuman Strength
- Superhuman Agility
- Superhuman Endurance
Basically what I’m telling you is that we’re going to be training to be extremely well-rounded.
We want to be strong, quick and agile, all while building up our stamina to superhuman levels.
You think you have what it takes?
