TwiFitness Trainers Talk About Rob

Hollywoodlife: The actor’s trainer, celebrity fitness expert Harley Pasternak, makes sure to keep him in shape for all of his movies. Harley and Rob started working together ahead of the first Twilight film. “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,”
“He did everything we said and followed the plan and was very polite. Then the movie came out and it became a sensation and I was like ‘Oh my gosh, that’s the same guy we were training!’”
On how often he exercises: “He’s on the 5-factor plan so five different phases of cardio: upper body, lower body, different abdominal muscles.” Harley’s plans has you work out a different part of your body each day for five days at a minimum of 25 minutes a day. It combines strength/core training with a 5-factor diet including five healthy meals a day
On his favorite workout: “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.”
On his least favorite workout: “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.
On whether he can eat oysters: “Sure, you’re allowed lean proteins, anything from the ocean or from the lake is good.”
On his personality: “He’s just a very sweet, unassuming guy who came to train with us, I’d never heard of him before…to see how big it became… it was the craziest thing. I went to meet with him in NYC and he had multiple security guards because there were people just swarming him. He’s someone that’s not built for this crazy celebrity status, he’s a very low-key guy who likes doing low-key things. He’s a very simple, low-key guy.”
