Although Efron’s workout regimen is different for each of the roles he plays in his movies, he believes that performing strength and cardio exercises helps him stay in good shape. Efron learned this from ex-Navy Seals Ramona Braganza and Logan Hood who trained him with the 3-2-1 workout for portraying a US marine in The Lucky One.

Efron also trained under the guidance of Patrick Murphy to develop a Baywatch body. After training for just 12 weeks, the 31-year-old actor attained 5 percent body fat. Before shooting for the movie, Efron split his training schedule in three days thereby reserving the first day for back and biceps, the second for legs, and the third for chest, shoulders, and arms with a little ab exercise every day.
