Since beginning his acting career as a Disney star, Hollywood actor Zac Efron has worked on a number of noteworthy movies. Efron appears to be getting in shape for his role in the upcoming film The Iron Claw in a recent image posted on Twitter.
You or your kids may know Efron from the immensely popular Disney movie franchise called High School Musical. The massive success of the movies set his acting career in motion. After that movie he started appearing regularly on the silver screen.
In 2017 the internet went up in flames after he revealed his insane physique for the role in upcoming movie at that time called Baywatch. It was said that he must follow a strict diet and training plan to gain some muscle mass faster. See how he looked back then – Zac Efron Gets Shredded to Work With The Rock.
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson was also staring in that movie at that time and was very helpful towards Efron. Not only were they to workouts together but also Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson was his biggest hype man during those said workouts.
In the following days after the release of Baywatch, Efron went on many interviews where he discussed on what he had to do to achieve that body. His whole experience could be summed up as difficult.
He said that he would not go through that whole process again unless it was a really interesting and big project. And it appears that Efron has taken up a new project in which it is required for him to be back in fighting shape.
Efron reveals on Twitter his very muscular body while training for the role of a professional wrestler in the upcoming movie called “The Iron Claw”. The point of the film is to show a wrestling pioneer during the second half of the 20th century.

The reason why Efron has gained so much muscle mass is because he is training for the role of the heavyweight champion Kevin Von Erich. Other famous actors will be apart of this film such as Jeremy Allen White and Lily James.
Additionally, in the film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, Zac Efron portrayed the serial murderer Ted Bunny.
The 35-year-old has stayed in great shape despite spending so much time in the spotlight. While in Thailand for a movie shoot, Efron posted a selfie on social media to celebrate his 34th birthday in 2021, showcasing his chiseled abs.

He disclosed last month on social media that he is currently practicing intermittent fasting to sustain daily vigor and keep his body in a ketosis state (How to Enter Ketosis; the Quickest and Simplest Way).
He experimented with several different diets, including being vegan for a period, but he changed after realizing that his body wasn’t adequately metabolizing veggies. He now adheres to a very strict and specific eating regimen that includes clean fish or pork with sweet potatoes.
