Having achieved enormous fame, Dwayne Johnson is now among the highest-paid actors in Hollywood. He is constantly on his feet, involved in various projects and has a lot on his plate. However, there is one thing that Johnson has remained faithful to ever since he was very young. Dwayne has dedicated most of his life to working out and training, which led him to be in “best shape of his life” today, as he said on his Instagram profile. The Rock started to work on his body when he was only 13 years old, that was his means of escape from other daily struggles and difficulties his family was facing at the time.
If you want to look near as good as Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle star, you should know that it won’t be easy. But this 46-year-old actor is always there to motivate and push you harder.
Johnson starts his day at 4.30am spending 30-50 minutes of cardio on the elliptical – and that comes even before his breakfast.
He goes to gym 5 to 6 times a week and always dedicates time to a certain group of muscles. Weight-lifting is also a vital part of his training process.
“My workout is constantly changing and adapting, but for the most part, I do four sets of 12 reps with a 60-90-second rest. I don’t play around in the gym. I always aim to be the hardest worker, and I make sure I clang and I bang to the best of my ability,” said Johnson.
When he is working on free weights, bands, and machines, Dwayne always hits specific muscle and lifts as hard as he can.
When the focus is set on his shoulders, he works on shoulder presses, dumbbell raises, side lateral raises, and cardio.
When it comes to legs, his training routine includes various squats and leg presses – using very heavy weights.
When asked where his motivation stems from, Johnson says that it comes from his gratitude for everything in his life, and from hunger.
“No one is going to be hungrier than I am,” he said.
