So you want a body like Zac Efron?

If you've followed Zac Efron over the last few years you'll have noticed how his body has gone from skinny and scrawny to lean and muscley! He certainly has sculpted a nice looking physique. But how has he done it, what kind of workout program? What kind of diet? Let's take a look.

Strength training has a number of benefits, not the least of which is helping you lose weight and, of course, keeping your body strong. No matter what your goals are, strength training is an important component of your Zac Efron workout program and it's never too late to start.

Be sure to check with your doctor before you start lifting weights if you have any medical conditions, injuries or illnesses.

       

 

Getting Started

 

If you're not familiar with the basic principles of strength training, This article is your starting point for learning about the rules and guidelines for lifting weights.

Start with a program that works all muscle groups 1-3 non-consecutive days a week.

Warm up with 5-10 minutes of light cardio or with warm up sets of each exercise using a light-medium weight.

Choose 1-2 exercises for each muscle group (see below) and do 1-2 sets of 8-16 repetitions of each exercise. As a beginner, you may want to start with about 15-16 reps until you feel comfortable with the moves and build some strength. After that, you can add more weight and reduce your reps for a different challenge.

If you exercise in a gym, you may want to start with machines so you have more stabilization for the movements.

Give yourself at least a day of rest (though you may need more after the first workout) to recover.

Each week, add either 1 repetition and/or a few pounds of weight to each exercise to progress. Just keep your reps at about 16 or below. Once you hit 16 reps, increase your weight and drop your reps down to 10 or 12 reps.

You want to challenge yourself, not kill yourself. The first few weeks, focus on learning how to do each exercise rather than on how much weight you're lifting or how many exercises you're doing. You have plenty of time to build muscle.

After 6 or more weeks of consistent strength training, you can change your routine to make it more difficult.

 

 

What Exercises Should You Do to Get a Zac Efron Body?

 

If you don't know much about weight training, consider hiring a personal trainer to help you set up your program. You should work all of your muscle groups each week so that you avoid muscle imbalances, which could lead to injury. For detailed information on specific exercises, see How to Choose Your Exercises.

Below is a list of muscle groups along with sample exercises. If you're a beginner, you only need to choose 1-2 exercises for each muscle group in the upper body and 3-4 moves for the lower body.

 

  • Chest: bench press, chest press machine, pushups, pec deck machine
  • Back: seated row machine, back extensions, lat pulldowns
  • Shoulders: overhead press, lateral raise, front raise
  • Biceps: bicep curls, hammer curls, concentration curls
  • Triceps: tricep extensions, dips, kickbacks
  • Lower Body: Squats, lunges, leg press machines, deadlifts, calf raises
  • Abdominals: crunches, reverse crunches, oblique twists, pelvic tilts
  • Choosing Your Sets, Reps and Weight
    Choosing your reps, sets and weight can be the most confusing part of strength training. How many reps and sets you do will depend on your goals.

    To lose body fat, build muscle: Use enough weight that you can ONLY complete 10-12 repetitions and 1-3 sets (1 for beginners, 2-3 for intermediate and advanced exercisers). Rest about 30 seconds-1 minute between sets and at least one day between workout sessions

    For muscle gain: Use enough weight that you can ONLY complete 4-8 repetitions and 3 or more sets, resting for 1-2 minutes between sets and 2-3 days between sessions. For beginners, give yourself several weeks of conditioning before you tackle weight training with this degree of difficulty. You may need a spotter for many exercises.

    For health and muscular endurance: Use enough weight that you can ONLY complete 12-16 repetitions, 1-3 sets, resting 20-30 seconds between sets and at least one day between workout sessions.
