Los Angeles Times’ Ministry of Gossip blog chatted briefly with Chaske and celebrity trainer Harley Pastern about Chaske needing to bulk up for the Twilight films.
“He wants to put more muscle mass on,” Pasternak said of his chat with Spencer at New Balance’s Fierce Trax booth.
“Looking big and muscular on screen isn’t about being big, it’s about symmetry, definition and proportion.”
Pasternak, who trained Robert Pattinson on the first film and the recent juggernaut “New Moon,” advised Spencer to avoid typical “beach muscles” like his biceps and chest. Instead, he told the 34-year-old to focus on the upper back to create a burly neckline and narrow “shoulder-to-waist ratio.”
Chaske also talked a bit about working with Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart:
“Rob’s a great guy; we hung out a few times on the set of ‘New Moon,’ but he’s not really in it. I’ve got a lot of scenes with Kristen, who is a strong and intelligent actress,” Spencer said.
