Alexandra Daddario made sure that her body would be ready to film in a swimsuit all day for Baywatch, next to hunks Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson.

The actress, who played Summer Quinn in the 2017 movie, revealed in an interview that she trained really hard to prepare her bod. But, it wasn't just because she wanted to look sexy, she also wanted to be strong.

Here's how Alexandra got her body Baywatch-ready.

From Hot Yoga To Weight Training

The Percy Jackson star is a big fan of yoga. She practices yoga not only to build stamina but also to calm her mind. But, to prep for the film, she needed to add a more intense routine and build muscles.

“My normal workout routine, pre-Baywatch, was a lot of hot yoga,” she told the Women's Health magazine.

“I feel like it helps with anxiety, it helps with sleep, it was sort of more of a mental thing. 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.”

She Wanted To Gain Weight

The goal wasn't to be skinny-sexy, the goal was to be sexy-strong. According to Alexandra, she actually wanted to gain weight for the role to have more muscle mass.

She worked with celebrity trainer Patrick Murphy and did hour-long high-intensity workout sessions for 4-5 days a week and also did weight training. This kind of strength training helps build and tone muscles than just doing cardio alone.

Instead of starving herself, Alexandra focused on body positivity and gaining strength.

Taking Better Care Of Her Body

Apparently, the movie helped her take better care of her body because she was forced to be in a swimsuit all the time.

“Really, I’ve never done anything where I’ve thought about my body as much,” the actress tells the magazine. “You are literally in a bikini the entire day. I even wore a swimsuit when I auditioned with Zac [Efron]!”

Her hard work definitely paid off because she looked incredible in her sexy red bikini.

Not Afraid To Do Sexy Roles

Alexandra doesn't shy away from taking sexy roles. Back in 2014, she played a part in HBO's True Detective, which required some nudity.

Daddario explained in an interview that she had no problem doing nude scenes if it is significant to the character's story.

"I really wanted to be part of the show, and I understood why the nudity and all of that was required of the character.... The character is really different from anything that I've done before. The nudity was just part of that."
