The Taylor Lautner Workout
Here we go again! The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is coming out at the end of the month – June 30th if I’m not mistaken, so it is time to examine the developments in the physique of our buddy Taylor Lautner for this, the third installment of the Twilight Saga.
How Taylor Got Swole
Taylor Lautner in Eclipse
A year ago I wrote a piece on Taylor Lautner’s Twilight workout, the training routine he used to gain 30 lbs of muscle in 9 months. That post led to Werewolf Training for Muscle Gains, the most popular workout routine to date on Project Swole, and Werewolf Training for Strength Gains, a less popular but yet effective strength building routine.
I think there’s somewhere around 800 comments on the Muscle Gains post now, with people reporting gains of anywhere from 5 lbs in a month, to 20 lbs in 3 months.
Gaining Another 10 lbs of Muscle
So apparently Taylor was supposed to gain 10 more lbs of muscle for his role in Twilight Eclipse. Did he pull it off? Judging by some of the pictures I’ve seen so far, I would believe he gained an additional 5-10 lb of muscle.
Of course by this time I would expect him to have hit a plateau of some sort, after all no one can keep gaining 3-4 lbs of muscle a month indefinitely. At some point the gains will slow down and he’ll have to completely change up his strategy.
To gain an additional 10 lbs of muscle and maintain the bulk, Taylor still has to eat and train like a werewolf everyday. Somehow he continues to stay ripped, sporting those famous 8-pack abs, yet he eats thousands upon thousands of calories each day just to avoid losing weight.
Taylor continues to praise the benefits used in Werewolf Training, including the following principles:
- constantly varying exercises
- constantly varying the number of reps and sets
- an upper/lower body split
- training with bands
- taking every 3rd day off
- eating to grow
- minimizing cardio
Go Team Jacob!
For Eclipse, Taylor again may have used a routine like Werewolf Training for Muscle Gains, which resembles the routine he used to gain 30 lbs of muscle for Twilight: New Moon, or he may have switched to a full body workout routine. I’ll keep my eyes open for any top secret information in any of Taylor’s interviews for the upcoming flick and let you know.
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
I am going to check out the movie when it comes out at the end of June, especially since I have no less than two fan-girls living with me.
