Kellan Lutz may wear all black when he steps out for a workout like he did this week, but there was no disguising Lutz’s toned torso!
The Twilight actor went for a run, Wednesday June 27, 2012, in the Los Angeles sunshine with his biceps positively bulging.
The 27-year-old star Twilight actor has become famous for his toned torso, and has revealed some secrets to achieving his muscular look.
He recently told Men’s Health magazine that he eats small meals every two or three hours and never misses breakfast. By always getting in the most important meal of the day and constantly eating small portioned out meals Kellan Lutz is less prone to overeat.
He is also a fan of an all-over body workout.
You can’t just build a huge chest and arms. You need to work out your body evenly. Otherwise, A, you’ll look weird, and B, it’s not the best for your body.
Kellan shared his “Full-Body Blast” with Men’s Health readers.
Curious? Here’s the lowdown:
Complete a set of each exercise in succession. Rest, drink some water and repeat. Build up to three circuits as your strength and stamina increase.
LEG THROW (20 REPS)
Lie flat on your back and raise your legs up explosively until they reach your training partner’s hand. He will push them back. Fight against it as you descend.
FOLD-UP (20 REPS)
Lie with your lower back on the round half of a Bosu ball. Cross your arms over your chest and bend your knees. Crunch forward. At the same time, draw in your pelvis and legs.
HANG CLEAN WITH PUSH PRESS (12 REPS)
Perform two hang clean with push presses before dropping down and doing two push-ups. Continue alternating until completing the prescribed repetitions. Stand grasping a barbell just beyond your shoulders, using an overhand grip. Bend at your hips and knees, letting the bar hang above your knees. Explode up, shrug your shoulders and roll your wrists back to “catch” the bar at your shoulder girdle – palms facing forward – as you drop into a squat. Explode back up and press the bar overhead.
PUSH-UP (12 REPS)
Do a traditional push-up.
INCLINE DUMBBELL PRESS (12 REPS)
Set the incline at 45 degrees before lying with your back on the pad, dumbbells held at your shoulders, palms facing forward. Straighten your elbows to press the dumbbells overhead.
EXPLOSIVE PUSH-UP (12 REPS)
Do a traditional push-up, but aim to push yourself off the floor and clap between reps.
LUNGE (12 REPS)
Alternate legs; once each makes a rep. With a dumbbell in each hand, stand in a lunge position (take a step forward with one leg). Drop straight down until both knees are bent 90 degrees. Push off your heel to come up and return to the lunge position.
GOBLET SQUAT (12 REPS)
Stand holding a dumbbell in front of your sternum with both hands, so your elbows are flared. Drop your hips and bend your knees to descend until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Keep your back from rounding or tipping forward. Complete a set of each exercise in succession. Rest, drink some water and repeat. Build up to three circuits as your strength and stamina increase.
The star had the opportunity to show off his torso in last year’s Greek God drama Immortals, where he played Greek God Poseidon.
But fans will be most hotly anticipating his return in the final Twilight installment.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 will be released on November 16. Mark your calendars! Hopefully we’ll get a glimpse of Kellan shirtless perhaps?
