The former New York Yankees pro made it clear that he doesn't have time for drama, as he worked on getting in shape following his April split from ex-fiancée Jennifer Lopez.

Rodriguez comically shared a video to his Instagram Story of himself running up a hill while working out that he captioned: "Running from all my problems."

While the 46-year-old didn't exactly address what "problems" he was talking about, one can guess he was referring to Lopez's new relationship with Ben Affleck, which first made headlines shortly after she broke up with Rodriguez.

Meanwhile, Rodriguez appears to be doing better than ever as the Gigli costars' romance heats up — or at least that's what he wants his ex and the cpublic to think. Apart from flaunting his apparent carefree life — with him sharing several photos of his luxurious getaway on a multi-million dollar yacht for his birthday — the newly-single hunk is making it clear that he's back on the market.

The father-of-three — who shares daughters Violet, 15, and Seraphina, 12, as well as son Samuel, 9, with Jennifer Garnerposted a thirst trap shirtless photo of himself cooling off in an outdoor shower on his yacht.

Rodriguez also shared a snap of himself in a suit and sunglasses as he leaned on a brick wall with one foot up, asking his 3.9 million followers which version of him they prefer best. "1 or 2? #whichsuitsyou ⬇️," he captioned his post.

His sexy snaps came shortly after he celebrated his birthday in St. Tropez, France — the same place Lopez and Affleck just so happened to be celebrating the pop star's 52nd birthday.

While Lopez and Affleck were seen all over each other on their own luxury yacht in St. Tropez, Rodriguez was seen out and about with his rumored new love interest, Melanie Collins. However, it seems the handsome hunk still isn't over his ex and may just be using his new flame to make the "On The Floor" songstress jealous.

An insider recently explained Rodriguez is "obsessed" with Lopez and determined to move on with his own Hollywood rebound. “Alex is the most competitive person you will ever meet," dished the source.

"His ego was bruised when Jennifer dumped him, however, when she got back together with Ben Affleck, Alex’s ego was destroyed," said a Radar insider. "There is no way we will see Alex dating again until he finds himself an A-list actress with an Oscar."

Rodriguez may just be trying to show Lopez what she's missing out on, but she probably won't care because she's too wrapped up with her other ex-fiancé, 48 — who Lopez was engaged to for two years before they called it quits. The rekindled flames haven't been shy about flaunting their love either, as the brunette beauty recently shared a steamy kissing photo of the two and was also seen wearing a 'Ben' necklace.
