Zac efron dating right
, even before it officially hits theaters, that he never reached in this latest career path.While his star power has risen consistently with every role, none of his recent films have received any formal critical recognition.I'll have clients do legs presses, but I don't sit clients down on machines very often. He hasn't fully eschewed the source of his early fame the way that some other Disney alum have, but his past roles read like a one-page book on "How to make the world forget you were Troy Bolton." There was the time he played the soldier in the Nicholas Sparks movie.
I had them implement stabilization exercises [i.e., moves that build foundational strength, like pushups, single-leg Romanian deadlifts, and shoulder presses], so they could then get into more serious exercises that involve strength, power, and quick-twitch muscles. I watch how someone performs, and give them cues: where to position their head; how to engage their shoulders; keep their wrists straight; tighten their abs; activate their glutes. I'd put him through a serious weight-training workout, then he’d do lifeguard training for two or three hours, or bike for about 30 miles. Paired with the super-clean diet I'd put him through, it was a win-win. On the big screen, Zac is the most ripped out of anyone I've seen in Hollywood history. Zac would have a cheat meal once a week, maybe, but for the most part it was all just whole foods: veggies, nuts and seeds, lean proteins. I see a lot of exercises that aren't great for the human body being performed in the gym every day, particularly negative adaptation [e.g., cause injury, aggravate joints]. It encourages tight hip flexors, rounded shoulders, and a forward head. There are all these injuries happening in gyms, because there's no concept of anatomy—of what's good and what's not good for your individual body.With Zac, I helped him create positive adaptations for perfect posture and alignment, all the while going through a very high-intensity program. I consider what type of supersets I’m slating for every workout. I trained him for several months, and he never went through the same exact workout twice. I saw him daily, too, so it was amazing what happened. [Here's one of the workouts Efron used to get his body beach-ready.] At its core, this was a whole-food diet. He could have brown rice, but not brown-rice pasta. And under a timed set, your spine can flex, your knees can bow out, and your poor wrists can be forced to 90°. For example, shorter people have shorter levers [arms and legs].Especially considering we only had three months to train. Zac stayed away from all highly refined, processed foods. They might not get hurt right away or feel the tendonitis creeping in as someone who's taller would.On a cable machine, you can do high rows, one-arm rows, one-arm presses, proper standing chest presses.The majority of my programs are done in a standing position.
