Robert Pattinson is an international heart throb, but before starring in the Twilight films he had barely stepped foot in a gym.
Celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak says that Pattinson didn’t even have any workout gear the first time he trained him!
“He was an unknown at the time, there was some schlocky vampire movie the producers called us about training this kid for. He was very sweet and polite and very quiet and didn’t have work out gear, I remember, the first time he came. We got him shoes and outfitted him.”
But once they got started Robert got the hang of things. Harley says that Robert likes to work out his upper body more than anything else.
“Like most men, upper body is his preference. Working his arms like a dumbbell/handbell bicep curl, lying dumbbell tricep extension: those are two simple exercises he can do in his trailer or wherever to tone and tighten his arms.”
Pattinson’s least favorite workout involves his legs:
“When it comes to working his legs, that’s generally something that creates the most muscle soreness the day after. So he gets pretty beaten up when we do lower body, from lunges to deadlifts. They aren’t really glory muscles for men and they are sore afterwards.”
Robert is a total hunk, and Harley helped him get to that — a great personal trainer can make all the difference!
