Zac Efron’s daily routine for his Baywatch body



Zac Efron

It’s no secret that Zac Efron was a teenage heart throb, but in Baywatch he unveiled a whole other level of fitness. Trained by Patrick Murphy, the famous celebrity fitness trained who has coached the likes of numerous Hollywood A-listers. These include Cameron Diaz, Jason Segel and Alexandra Daddario.

His routine consisted of full body workouts, power and strength training, balance and stability training, lifeguard training, obstacle course training and so much more. Rep schemes, lifting styles and set schemes were all thrown at Efron but changed up continuously on the daily. With an impressive workout ethic, Efron managed to get through this all and become shredded for his role.

How Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson builds and maintains muscle



The Rock has been a staple in many action movies on the big screen for some time now, as well as being a wrestling superstar. And usually within these roles, he plays the big bad looking guy, and we mean really big. The Hollywood heavyweight seems to have an impossible physique that exudes masculinity. But with the busy schedule of a movie star, how does he manage to build then maintain a physique like that?

Here is how Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson builds and maintains muscle.

Always look to progress

Johnson believes in progressive overload, which is to do with continually pushing your body to new heights once workouts get easy. You should be careful as you can injure yourself if you up it too quickly, however this is the way to ensure you progress.

It is important to listen to your body

The way your body responds to things is the only thing you should listen to. If you are trying a new workout, you must see how your body reacts to it. If it reacts well and you get good gains, then continue to follow it. If not, maybe it’s not the workout routine for you. More so, if your body is telling you that there is pain, then usually it is not a good thing. Pushing through joint or muscle pain (not the good kind!) can leave you with injuries that can persist for a long time.

Go hard in the gym

When in the gym, really give everything you’ve got. All your frustrations can be let out in the gym, and giving it your all also ensures that you’ll get a good workout and the most out of it.

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has an impressive physique, which he says can be achieved naturally with a dedicated diet and a dedicated workout routine.
