You don't become Superman overnight.
"It's a very, very long and involved process," Henry Cavill told PEOPLE at Monday's Man of Steel premiere in New York – the movie opened nationwide Friday – about his exhausting physical transformation from human to superhuman.
It went in stages. And all of them were painful.
"Five months before shooting there was varying stuff which ended up being mass building and then leaning down," said the actor, 30. "Throughout the shoot it was just waking up and making sure I got an hour in [of exercise] before I went to work."

June 12 will be a big day for the Man of Steel cast.
That is the date that Spike TV's Guys' Choice Awards airs, and Superman fans will get to watch stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams and Russell Crowe, along with director Zack Snyder, accept the "Most Manticipated" award in honor of the action figure's 75th anniversary.
Other major presenters just announced include Jake Gyllenhaal, Jessica Alba and Snoop Lion.

Superman, buying his outfit in an XL?
"I was fat," says Henry Cavill, the star of the new Man of Steel, the latest big-screen take on Superman (out June 14), says about his childhood. "I was Fat Cavill."
A native of Jersey in the English Channel – and a veteran of Showtime's The Tudors, on which he played Charles Brandon, Duke of Suffolk – Cavill now stands on the brink of stardom in his tight Superman outfit.
But it wasn't always so, the 30-year-old tells Details for its June/July issue.
