The actor is the strongest man in the industry
Dwayne Johnson is one of the most recognizable faces on the planet for many reasons. His acting, producing, wresting and even tequila business are some of the reasons that explain his stardom. There’s one other thing that distinguishes him from the rest: his insanely muscly physique. There’s a reason why his nickname is ‘The Rock’…
Working out is a way of life for the Johnson. As he’s explained on many occasions, the former WWE sensation spends hours upon hours in the gym working on his figure, as well as consuming thous ands of calories a day. It’s been reported that to prepare for his role as Hercules, he consumed seven protein-based meals a day which equated to over four thousand calories.
The actor has once again proved he’s not human with his feat of strength. The 6 ft 5 machine has uploaded a video of him benching pressing 110-pound (50 kg) dumbbells. What’s more, he was working out as midnight. “Midnight training and burnin’ oil. Tired, but we’re all tired. Build new mountain,” was caption chosen by Hollywood’s wealthiest actor.
The post, which has already received almost half a million likes, has been filled with comments from impressed followers. “Wow, he can lift me up with one hand,” said one user. “Damn, that is crazy,” said another.
WWE legend Dwayne Johnson has once again shown off his huge physique as he prepares for his latest movie role.
The former wrestler and now Hollywood superstar, 49, is currently playing DC Comic’s Black Adam for his latest job on the silverscreen.
But it appears ‘The Great One’ has been working just as hard in the gym as he has been learning the script.
The Rock shared two snaps of himself with his 241 million Instagram followers as he proudly showed off his vein-popping biceps and legs.
He captioned them with: “Big week for #BlackAdam shooting my ‘champion’ scenes with my shirt off and showing my body.
“Been working extremely hard dieting, training and conditioning unlike any other role of my entire career.
“Manipulating water, sodium, cardio but also having to push and pull real iron to have dense, dry, detailed muscle. It’s a real science that takes months and months to dial it all in with my strength & conditioning coach @daverienzi who keeps a very watchful eye, constantly fine tuning our strategy daily.
“As many of you know, the intense (and exciting) comic mythology of Teth Adam – he becomes the immortal ‘champion’ by the Gods. Blessed with the powers of Superman and dangerous magic from the wizards.
“Then his rage turns his soul dark, forever becoming Black Adam. Big week, grateful for the grind & support – here we go.”
Meanwhile, The Rock’s daughter is already making waves on her quest to follow her dad into the ring.
