Starring in Baywatch means getting as fit as humanly possible. Alexandra Daddario took the challenge seriously and worked hards to get into shape for her role. Here's how she did it.
Alexandra Daddario worked out with trainer Patrick Murphy to sculpt her Baywatch physique. Her workouts were oriented for full-body, lightning-fast, and very challenging.
"For Baywatch, I started doing weight training, which I had never done before, and I saw a huge difference. It was kind of amazing, the transformation I went through," Daddario told Women's Health.
Daddario did weight lifting and added in 10-minute AMRAP workouts. AMRAP means getting in as many rounds as you can in a limited time frame.
Alexandra ran through moves for the upper body, legs, glutes, and abs to feel a full-body burn.
When done as quickly as possible, this workout becomes a true HIIT training, torching calories and boosting the metabolism.
