Taylor Lautner Workout RoutineLearn how the Taylor Lautner workout transformed an average teenager into a muscle bound werewolf.

Taylor Lautners’ break through moment came playing the werewolf Jacob in the movie series “Twilight”. Owing much of his success to his popularity with the opposite sex, his muscular physique during the his performance in many of the shirtless scenes without doubt, made the girls take notice of this fresh new face in Hollywood.

When preparing for the Twilight sequels, Lautner initially worked out each day but eventually cut back on the rigorous routine, realizing that he had to allow his body to recover and rest. The workout was reduced to 5 days in a week, this still rather intense routine allowed Taylor to gain more than 30 pounds of lean muscles prior to filming .

As Taylor Lautner found out, too much gym time without sufficient recovery will produce poor results, no amount of training replaces good nutrition and rest.
