Zac Efron has inspired a flurry of thirst on Instagram (not for the first time) with his latest post, a pair of workout photos which show the 33-year-old actor hard at work doing crunches. And as the second, shirtless photo illustrates, that grind is paying off; his abs are shredded.
Efron, who has been living in Australia for much of the last year, is currently in the middle of filming the second season of his Netflix show, Down to Earth. The series, a mashup of travelogue and documentary, follows Efron as he meets with different individuals and communities all over the world who are working to live more sustainably and harmoniously with the planet. (Due to Covid, it looks like much of the content of the second season will take place in Australia.)
During the first season of the show, which saw Efron eating all kinds of different foods, the actor spoke about the intense fitness and nutrition plan that he followed while getting shredded for the Baywatch movie, and stated that he will probably never get into that kind of shape ever again, for one simple reason: he loves carbs. “I’m so happy that I’m eating carbs again,” he said. “I went, like, years without eating carbs… When I shot Baywatch, I didn’t have a carb for, like, six months. I almost lost my mind.”
Efron has also been pretty upfront about how unrealistic it is to maintain that kind of ripped physique outside of a shooting schedule. “You’re working with almost no wiggle room,” he said during an episode of Hot Ones last year. “You got things like water under your skin that you’re worrying about, making your six-pack into a four-pack. Shit like that. It’s just stupid and it’s not real… I may do it again if there’s something worthwhile, but [I’ll] wait till it gets to that. I don’t need it.”
While he might not be taking his training and diet to the extremes that he did when he was starring in those kinds of movies, Efron is still in amazing shape—as evidenced by the six-pack abs on show in his latest gym thirst trap.
