Most people don’t wake up one day and decide they want to become an underwear model or a male stripper. It takes a lot of work, and sometimes it also takes inspiration from other celebrities. Take the case of Robert Pattinson, who has been on the cover of countless magazines and has starred in several major motion pictures. In order to achieve his perfect beach body, the Twilight star has been known to mimic the stunts of other famous people. Let’s examine some of his less-than-flattering techniques and how you can avoid them.

The Stick Cables

Every serious workout routine contains a lot of equipment: weights, resistance bands, and now, perhaps, a cherry-picker. If you’re not familiar, a cherry picker is a device that would make Andy Dufrene (from The Handmaid’s Tale) proud. It’s a large mechanical arm with a basket on the end that allows you to pick cherries off a tree and deposit them into a truck or other vehicle for transport to a processing plant. Just imagine having the power of that thing around! As it turns out, not only does Robert Pattinson possess a massive amount of physical strength, but he also has an impressive knack for remembering the contortions of other famous people and using them as a guide to create his own unique moves. One of the most recognizable features of his workouts is the abundance of stick cables which drape over his body like colorful scarves and serve as a reminder of all his trendy fashion choices. Most people would consider these decorations a nuisance, and, indeed, they are. Every time Pattinson does a workout, he has to deal with the cables, which get in the way of his movements and sometimes even attach themselves to his skin. He’s also had to modify his workouts because of the presence of these pesky things. This is most likely why he hasn’t been seen at the gym as regularly as he used to. Luckily, there is an easy way to avoid these frustrating obstacles.

The Gloves

Yes, it’s true: sometimes, in order to avoid getting sweaty palms, you have to cover them up with a set of fake gloves. When it comes to avoiding sweaty palms, gloves are the best accessory there is. It doesn’t matter if you’re working out at home or in a gym; when you wear gloves, you’ll be surprised at how clean your exercises can remain. Because of this, most serious fitness buffs and gym-goers prefer to wear gloves, even when going for a jog; this helps reduce the risk of injuries from falls or road accidents. If you’re planning to work out with someone else, they might also choose to wear gloves to avoid accidentally stepping on your toes. Of course, this doesn’t mean you have to share the same fashion choice. It’s perfectly okay to go bare-handed during a workout if you’d rather.

The Water

Another way in which Pattinson’s workout routine has changed is in the form of the fluid he consumes. For decades, people have been advised to drink plenty of water while working out. It’s not that the water is unhealthy, per se, but it often prevents the body from becoming dehydrated, which can lead to health problems. To keep up with his rigorous workout schedule, Pattinson must consume at least six glasses of water each day. The problem is that not only does the water have to meet his nutritional requirements, but it also has to satisfy his desire to imitate the movements of famous people. This can be extremely difficult to achieve, especially while drinking from a plastic glass. Unless you’re prepared to invest in a water bottle that connects to your bladder, you’re stuck with either carrying the heavy liquid in a cup or forcing him to go to the bathroom every few minutes during a workout. It would be best if he could drink from the bottle and still maintain the same level of athletic appearance.

The Reclining

While there’s nothing wrong with taking a break and doing your homework while working out, there’s also nothing wrong with wanting to get in a quick workout before heading to class. Reclining is one of the simplest ways to get in a quick workout; all you need is a chair and a TV. Simply lie down on a couch with your feet planted on the floor and put the TV on top of your head. Then, lift your feet off the floor and press down on the arms of the chair. This will help you get a better stretch and engage more muscles. Although the method is very effective, it’s also not for everybody. If you have a hard time keeping your back straight, you might want to skip this one. Also, if you’ve ever sat down in the same position as someone who’s just eaten, you might end up with a few bruises. Just be careful and don’t blame us when your parents find out what you’re doing. They’ll never forgive you if you hurt your back playing video games.

The Overall Impression

Even those who don’t know much about fitness have probably heard of Robert Pattinson. The Twilight star’s body is one of the most recognizable in Hollywood, and it’s not hard to understand why. He’s tall, he has huge muscles, and, most importantly, he looks completely natural while working out. It doesn’t seem like he’s wearing any make-up or posing at all. He mostly just looks like he’s having fun while working out. Unfortunately, most people don’t have fun while working out. They have all sorts of crazy workouts they’ve been told to follow and don’t enjoy themselves during. When they’re done, they feel like they’ve wasted an hour even if they only spent 10 minutes at the gym. This is why it’s preferable for everyone, especially those who want to imitate famous people, to go bare-handed during their workouts. If they wear gloves, it’ll be more difficult for them to do the moves they’re trying to copy. Of course, this doesn’t mean they have to be bare-handed; it just means they don’t have to wear the gloves as an accessory. Working out in gloves is still better than most people would believe, and it can help you avoid injuries and improve your overall health.
