The Rock and Zac Efron Are Absolutely Crushing Their ‘Baywatch’ Beach Workouts

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Zac Efron do pullups on the "Baywatch" set.

Forget about the CrossFit Games—the ultimate test of fitness is being held on the set of Baywatch, where Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Zac Efron have continued their onscreen battle royale with even more feats of epic strength. We’ve already seen these dudes flip tractor tires. What’s next?

A pullup contest, of course.


If Johnson’s description is accurate—and there’s no reason to believe it isn’t—we’re talking strict pullups. No kipping, no butterfly, no momentum nonsense, just man and muscle. And 100 wide-grip pullups is a lot of strict pullups. So good on you, Efron, for keeping up with 99. But this Rock can defy gravity. Well, his giant lats can.

Next up: A little American Ninja Warrior action, starring an (admittedly jacked) Efron.


But no mortal man can out-awesome Dwayne Johnson. So he went ahead and one-upped himself. How? Carrying a yoke bearing two giant-ass refrigerator/freezer combos over a beach, World’s Strongest Man-style.


Baywatch, also starring Priyanka Chopra, Alexandra Daddario, Ilfenesh Hadera, Kelly Rohrbach, and—yes—David Hasselhoff, premieres May 2017.
