    Exclamation Edward Norton

    This guy packed on over 30 pounds of muscle in only 3 MONTHS for the movie Amercian History X, thats pretty impressive. Id like to know how he did it in such a short time...does anyone have any theories?

    Never trained before, so he had 'newbie' gains. Not to mention he is pretty small, so 30lbs could have been done with diet.
    There is also the possibility of him using gear.

    On Leno for promoting the movie (well after filming) he was skinny. Leno asked what happened to your body? Norton said "It blew up then deflated....Man I miss those muscles."

    So his producers stopped paying for his gear?

    Ryan Renolds did the same thing for Blade 3 he gained about 20 lbs of LBM and lost a ton of body fat in a couple of months.

    there are no magic routines when it comes to weight lifting and gaining muscle. with a near perfect diet a newbie to resistance training can gain a lot of LBM fast. especially when there is a low level of activity outside of the gym.

    All he did for those 3 month's was probably train twice a day, eat and memorize his script, if I had 3 month's stress free I could pack on some mean weight too.

    Ed Norton didn't pack on 30 pounds.

    I he put on weight, but it wasn't thirty pounds.

    In the movie, he also didn't have a lot of mucscle anyway, although we could probably classify him as an ecto.

    It's ok to come out to the open and admit " we love Norton"

    I think a lot of his "muscle" came through in his acting and attitude and the way he used his body.
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain...

    I think you're right Rock... He was just badass in that movie. Not real big at all. Certaintly an obtainable body with a good diet I would think. I am kinda built like that now, but not quite as chesty.. or arms that size..lol

    Ed Norton was definately a badass in American History X (except when he got raped in the shower), and has always been one of my favorite actors. 30 pounds seems about right to me as he does look like a pretty skinny guy now and in his other movies. But how does one get 30 pounds of muscle in only 3 months and not much fat? That is a short period of time, and he did get smaller.

    he didnt nessisarily use steroids to put on the weight. just like premier said newbie gains added with a really good diet could have done it. i thought the guy developed a pretty damn good body for the movie

    I think the tats help add definition like the 2 barbed wire bands around his biceps make them appear larger and the swaztika brings dimension to the chest. Him and Brad Pitt are very skinny guys for both being around 6' they weigh about 160, Norton lost 17 for Fight Club, I remeber when he fought the blond guy his chest looked like it was going to implode.

    After seeing Primal Fear(Nortons first major role) I was convinced he was one of the greatest actors ever.

    him and Kevin Spacey are my too favorite actors. He did look good in the movie though
    you also have to look at the fact that he was white as a ghost in
    the film it takes allot more to look ripped when your very pale complected. That is
    about the frame I would like to have here in about 12weeks. I'll pull it off for sure.
