Reflecting on getting the superhero role, Javicia said: 'Physique wise I was already in shape before Batwoman, but I did make sure I got back into my cardio to build up my stamina.
'We'd been in quarantine for a while so I hadn't been doing as much as I used to do, but I didn't have to change my shape, just maintain my muscle tone and ensure I didn't drop weight since I can get skinny easily and I don't want that.'
Javicia explained to the publication that while on set she was doing a 21-day fast that saw her swear off meat, alcohol, or anything that has been processed, which is a diet she has done four years in a row.
Finding the fast a great way to 'kick-start her year', the actress called it a 'spiritual act' as she claimed: 'A lot of the toxins we put into our bodies can prevent us from being able to operate optimally.'
She uses multiple forms of exercise to keep fit, lifting weights two to three days a week, doing Muay Thai twice a week, and using Peloton to maintain her cardio.
But that isn't all, as she also does yoga and meditates regularly, while she will do Bo Staff to help 'connect the brain and the body'.
Javicia landed the part through an online audition following Rose's departure, and she explained to the publication: 'My Zoom audition was a video I created showing off all my training.
'My partner Jacob is my trainer. He got me into MMA and helps me choreograph and film routines.
'I also showed off my calisthenics skills. My brother was a semi-pro MMA fighter, so I was always around it, then when I got to LA I finally started to learn for myself.'
She went on: 'I love training with Jacob, but we've been apart since I left LA for Vancouver in August 2020.
'He sends me step-by-step Bo Staff videos and some mornings we'll wake up and FaceTime and do yoga together to start off our mornings.
'I'm here until May but he can't visit because of the pandemic. I was able to go home in December for two weeks to spend time with him, which was lovely.'
Javicia secured the role after Rose - the first LGBTQ character in the Arrowverse -opted to leave after one season of the show, citing long hours and growing tension on top of an injury she sustained while filming.
In a statement to Entertainment Weekly about her exit, Rose said: 'You know, you have time in quarantine and sort of isolation to just think about a lot of different things and what you want to achieve in life and what you want to do.
'I think for both [me and the producers], it was a great opportunity to have a dialogue about a lot of things.'
