Taylor Lautner Abs – Taylor Lautner Workout

2009 December 2

Taylor Lautner, one of the stars of the hit movie series Twilight, has some pretty ripped abs, for sure. But he didn’t always have that hunk look with his bulk muscle and washboard abs. In fact, Taylor used to be a pretty skinny kid and not a strong guy, but not any more.

So what did Taylor do and what can you do to get Forget the high fat snacks and mocha’s at Barnes and Noble, you want to get ripped abs already.

Next, you want to be committed to a serious and regular workout routine and also try to find a workout partner or trainer if you can afford it because that will keep you motivated and honest. Taylor had to put on weight for the recent Twilight movie New Moon because his character became a werewolf and you can’t look like a skinny sissy and play the part Taylor did. I don’t know if the studio hired a personal trainer or if Taylor himself paid for one, but Jordan Yuam was Lautner’s trainer and he is the owner of Jordan’s Virtual Fit Club. He claims Taylor actually had an advantage because he didn’t have that much muscle and it was easier to put on muscle for him.

Taylor’s workout consisted of some muscle building exercises for his whole body and some specific abs workouts for his core. Here’s his overall philosophy about working out.

Push Beyond Your Limits – Here’s where your workout partner comes in. For some workouts you want to lift more weight than you are used to, If you can normally bench 200 pounds, put 225 or 230 on the barbell and get used to feeling that amount of weight on your arms with your spotter right there. this will help you blast beyond your limitations.

Do Different Workouts – Don’t do the same things in your routine all the time. Your body won’t respond as well if you keep doing the same workouts all the time. If you change up your routine and use different weights, do different exercises, do more reps or do more sets, you will see your body respond and grow bigger.

Create Resistance– Don’t always use free weights! I know that sounds crazy to your purists, but there is a slight problem with free weights, they don’t always create enough resistance. When using free weights there are parts of your rep that become easier, but if you use a machine or have someone put a little tension on your dumbell or barbell, you will have constant tension during the entire swing of your rep.

Go Easy On The Cardio– Cardio is great at first to help burn some fat, but you never want to do cardio after an intense muscle building routine because it will lessen the effects of what you just did. Do cardio on different days than your muscle workouts.

Don’t Work Your Abs Too Much– This is a big secret. Most guys you see in the gym are working the crap out of their abs, but the fact is, your abs are only a small part of your entire muscle system. You should work all your muscle groups almost equally and that will take care of your abs.

    This is an excellent post on how to get those six pack abs like Taylor Lautner.

    Many times it’s easier to focus on just one goal: either building muscle or burning fat, rather than trying to do both at the same time.

    I’d suggest following the advice above to get ripped and build six pack abs, then switching to a program to pack on lean muscle mass.
