When Christian Bale gets a nomination for doing shirtless push-ups in a prison-pit, you know you're dealing with the MTV Movie Awards. Bale's Batman joins three other buff dudes (and one teddy bear) in the Best Shirtless Performance category. One thing's for sure, though: Batman's only shirtless because he has a city to save and has to get back into peak physical condition. What about you, Magic Mike? Are you shirtless for such a grand cause? Didn't think so!

To prepare you for this Sunday's MTV Movie Awards, here is Bale's shirtless performance as Bruce Wayne in "The Dark Knight Rises." Don't forget to vote for your favorite and tune in to the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, Sunday April 14th at 9 p.m.
