Taylor Lautner Workout

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

Taylor Lautner became popular as  the werewolf Jacob in the movie series “Twilight”. It is clear that Taylor spent many hours in the gym to build the muscular physique required for the role, learn how to do the same.

When preparing for the Twilight sequel, Lautner initially worked out each day but eventually cut back down 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 “The Moon”.

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.

Bodybuilder Ben Pakulski has recently released a workout program called MI40X that employees a new recovery technique that involves mid-set stretches. Check out my review here.
