Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has left his mark on the fitness community as much as he has on Hollywood. With a dedication to staying in tip-top shape, ‘The Rock’ often shares his workout routines with fans on social media. Johnson is back at it featuring his chest day superset ‘finale’ in a recent video on Instagram.
Dwayne Johnson was an aspiring football player who turned into one of the world’s greatest wrestlers in the 90s. Having not been drafted in 1995, Johnson signed with the WWF in 1996, now known as WWE, and went on to have an illustrious career which included becoming a 10-time world champion.
‘The Rock’ slowly shifted into acting and in 2001 was signed to his first big role in The Mummy then later turned heads in 2002 with his first leading role in The Scorpion King. From there he became a well-known Hollywood actor cast in films such as Race to Witch Mountain, Tooth Fairy, and even voice acted for the Disney movie Moana.
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Shares His ‘Kick Ass’ Chest Workout
Between his previous wrestling career and all his time on the big screen, Johnson has been passionate about keeping up his insanely ripped physique. Even at 51, ‘The Rock’ hasn’t slowed down and is able to kill it in the gym with various types of training including his ‘Monster set’ leg day or his superhero quad workout. At the same time, he always makes sure to maintain a diet that’s as massive as his biceps, especially on a cheat day.
Back at it again, Dwayne Johnson demonstrates his routine for the chest while dripping sweat in a recent Instagram post.
“Chest superset FINALE
It’s a bitch but very productive.
Cable flys ➕ elevated feet push ups
3-4 second squeeze/hold on flys.
* Slow tempo on push ups, til failure
* no need to go heavy here ‼️
* open up your chest, stretch, squeeze on that held contraction.
* control your tempo – quality reps only
Kick ass and have fun” Johnson writes.
‘The Rock’ can be seen doing cable flys, which he has kept in the 10-12 rep range while holding for 3-4 seconds on each contraction. Instead of relying on heavy weight, The Rock is perfecting his form to reap the most benefits out of the movement. After the flys, Johnson shared that he performed elevated foot push-ups.
Regardless of Johnson showing off his hard work in the gym, some fans and YouTubers have speculated that he is not natural and uses steroids. Bodybuilding legend Jay Cutler has addressed those rumors and defended him sharing that it is ‘his business’ whether he comes out about his potential performance-enhancing drug use.
Previously ‘The Rock’ has struggled with injuries to his knee as well as a torn Achilles and quad, and now focuses on workouts to enhance his mobility while continuing to push himself in the gym daily. This determination and willpower is why he’s remained such a popular and respected figure in the fitness industry for so long.
