Taylor Lautner Ab Workout

After reading through the interview that Men’s Fitness Magazine did with Taylor Lautner, I decided to try his workout and show you what these exercises consisted of.

You and your teenage daughters know who Taylor is from New Moon, the second movie of the Twilight series.

Taylor got into martial arts at a very young age and was able to build a strong core through that. He had always been very thin and due to the fact that they needed a more muscular male to play the role of Jacob Black in the movie, he had to get serious about putting on some weight.

Taylor was able to add 20 pounds of muscle mass in only nine months.

Don’t expect the same results, but do try this routine. I like it and will do it more often in the future.
