    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."

    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.

    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    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 an accurate statement that our current spending will not be increasing the debt We've stopped spending money that we don't have.

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