To become a #BAYWATCH Lifeguard we created an unforgiving obstacle course that was inspired by American Ninja Warrior meets World's Strongest Man. Idea that you will be physically and mentally tested to the limits, all while staying focused and being as calm as possible in extremely stressful situations so you're always able to accomplish the most important thing – hit the water and make the save. All that said, it still begs one important question… Whyyyyyy in the blue hell am I carrying two massive sub zeros on my back. #WelcomeToOurFamily #WhereBadAssMeetsDysfunction #BAYWATCH MAY 2017.
Along with the brutal production schedule that most actors must endure during a shoot, The Rock is continuously finding ways to push the envelope for greater demands, especially on the set of his latest project, Baywatch. Just last week we saw the always-jacked Johnson, battle co-star, Zac Efron in a tire-flipping contest that would make any strongman proud.
To kick things up a notch, the action-star recently undertook the task of hauling two massive refrigerators on his back during a brutal obstacle course set up on the beach. In his Instagram post, Johnson credited the Herculean feat to helping him be more physically and mentally prepared for stressful of situations that come with being a lifeguard.
Whatever unorthodox approach Johnson and Efron are taking on the Baywatch set, it’s certainly keeping them fine-tuned for their shirtless roles. The Rock sums it up best with this past post.
“This is my beach bitch kind of RATED R comedy. We’ll start shooting at the top of 2016 and one more thing.. just wait ’til you see who we cast for our girls….” #WhoWantsToBeSaved? #MouthToMouthForEverybody

Cool to see the INSANE global reaction to our announcement yesterday for Zac Efron to co-star with me in BAYWATCH. Clearly he's one unattractive sumbitch but he's a great dude who's ready to make something epic. BAYWATCH is the most successful TV property of all time, so I'm fired up to produce it along with my long time producing partner Beau Flynn @flynnpictureco and legendary Ivan Reitman. Director Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses, Identity Thief) has a dope vision and is ready to roll. Over the past few years I've taken careful steps with this franchise cause we want to do it right – big, fun, global, sexy and bad ass mixed in with "This is my beach bitch" kind of RATED R comedy. We'll start shooting at the top of 2016 and one more thing.. just wait 'til you see who we cast for our girls…. #WhoWantsToBeSaved? #MouthToMouthForEverybody #WellNotEverybody #AssemblingOurEpicTeamOfLifeguards #BAYWATCH ??
