The Warmup

First, there’s the warmup, The warmup is all about getting your body ready for the extreme experience it’s about to go through. To start, you need to go through 15 reps (each side) of external rotations before moving on to an equal amount of leg swings. Then, it’ll be time to get 15 reps of a TRX Y Raise and TRX Hamstring Strech.

Again, we have to remind you all that the above steps were created for Zac Efron specifically and the needs of his specific body. On top of that, the exercise was made with a specific diet in mind, a specific end date prepared, and many more factors that went into the exercise.

As such, we have to warn you all that attempting to recreate the “Zac Efron look” could be dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing. The safe, and smart, idea is to build up your exercise routine to where you know your body and what it needs. Then, ask a professional how to tweak this exercise to get you to where you wanna go.

Remember, exercise and fitness are about the journey just as much as it’s about the goal. Don’t just admire Zac Efron’s look, but all the effort he put in to get that look. Then take that as an example for your own workout.
