The muscles that the actor Zac Efron shines in Baywatch provoke sighs among the women and are the envy of many men, but to show off that sculptural body the actor had to undergo a rigorous diet for 12 weeks.
Zac Efron height is around 5 feet, 8 inches and with it his toned body made him look the sexiest man on earth. In his diet he left out processed products, fats and sugar, as he only ate organic products and lean proteins, such as egg whites, chicken and turkey without skin, as well as fish and organic green leaves.
Whey protein supplements supplemented his diet. Very important, he drank almost three liters of water a day.
But to get that muscle, he also had to exercise. Efron performed intense exercise and physical conditioning routines through crossfit, which helped him shape his arms, abdomen, legs, back, shoulders and chest.
Coach Patrick Murphy helped Efron sculpt his body, as he did with Eva Longoria, Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Lawrence.
The trainer of Zac Efron, Patrick Murphy, has revealed to the magazine Men’s Fitness everything that the actor did to build a muscular physique.
The reality is that Zac Efron had never been so strong and with hardly any body fat until he had to shoot the film ‘Baywatch’.
Therefore, Men’s Fitness magazine has been interested in how he managed to get that great physicist for the film, interviewing his personal trainer Patrick Murphy, also in charge of “shaping” many other celebrities.
“I gave him my twenty years of experience.” First of all, and according to the trainer, Zac Efron did strength training. “When you put your muscles to the limit, they are able to bring out their full potential,” said Murphy.
“I used a scientific approach, and this gave us great results. I had him implement exercises (that is, movements that create fundamental force, such as push-ups, Romanian one-leg deadlifts, and shoulder presses), so that he could later participate in more powerful exercises involving strength, power, and fast-twitch fibers. “, The coach mentions.
“In essence, it was a diet of whole foods. Efron stayed away from all kinds of highly refined and processed foods. He could eat brown rice, but not brown rice pasta. The same with fruit. He could eat an apple, but not apple juice. ”
Vegetables, nuts, seeds, lean protein. Thus the actor managed to change his physique and become, practically, a model of fitness. The nuts gave him enough energy and healthy fats, and on the other hand, he used protein sources like chicken, eggs and meat. The avocado also had a primordial hole in his diet. As for fruit and vegetables, what they consumed the most were apples, pears or red fruits.
