I'm pretty sure he could have fought back but chose instead to play up the broken man angle to preserve his image of a recluse.

That's overly simplistic. If you remember, the pushups are not what helped him make the jump, because he fails twice. If you're complaining that there is no supernatural element in The Pit, I think you're missing the symbolism of Bruce's successful jump. He makes it unassisted because his spirit wants to make the jump. Just as in real life, you can choose to view this rehabilitation from a supernatural angle if you wish to. Bane put him into The Pit and subjected him to the forces that fueled his desire to escape. That makes a Lazarus Pit for me.
