Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson boasts a massive frame that he’s built with consistent work at his home gym, Iron Paradise. In a recent Instagram post, The Rock showed off his grueling leg day superset training session, smashing past multiple sets of leg extensions.
Johnson rose in popularity quickly as a professional wrestling icon. He is lauded for his decorated career in multiple pro wrestling organizations like the WWE and the WWF. As a prolific actor, his films have grossed well over $3 billion in the United States and he’s become a global icon after starring in several hit motion pictures, like Marvel’s standalone success Black Adam.
Known for his motto of ‘being the hardest worker in the room,’ Johnson prides himself on maintaining his strength and fitness levels. Whether it’s a brutal chest and upper body workout for a ‘super pump’ or killer leg day finishers with monster sets, The Rock doesn’t miss an opportunity to push himself, often gathering at odd hours of the night to ensure his training sessions.
Having built one of the best physiques in Hollywood, The Rock loves offering fitness advice and workout routines to fans. This time, the 50-year-old detailed a superset pre-exhaust workout consisting of four sets of 24 reps, followed by two drop sets to failure.
The Rock Pushes Himself With Brutal Leg Day Workout: ‘Bit** of a Burn But Insanely Effective’
You can find The Rock’s one-exercise leg workout below:
“Champions are made in the Iron Paradise 🐅
I switched up my training routine to train legs 2xs a week.
Light-ish day (Wednesday) Intense day (Sunday)
Superset pre exhaust:
Leg extensions superset with leg curls
4 sets. 25 reps. Then drop set 2xs til failure
* using my Prime machine here to adjust quad load and intensity *
Give it a try ☝🏾
This is a bitch of a burn but insanely effective 🤬😅” The Rock shared.
Leg extensions are an excellent exercise for building strong and muscular quadriceps. Isolating the muscle group can produce a more satisfying pump – a goal Johnson consistently strives for in his training.
The Rock works hard but plays hard too. He demonstrates training techniques online and has shed light on some of his dietary choices as well. Refueling can be a daunting task for someone with a large frame like Johnson, so when it comes to leg day training, Johnson appreciates cheat meals. He’s garnered headlines for an In-N-Out feast of burgers and his power-packed breakfast of steak, eggs, oatmeal, and five peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

The last time fans saw Dwayne Johnson in action, he annihilated his lower body with a brutal yet effective squat variation. There’s no question his dedication to training is sure to inspire onlookers moving forward.
I applaud individuals like the rock who put great emphasis on strength training and fitness. But to glorify an individual who has admitted to using steroids is a bit troubling. Granted, he trains insanely, but using “Juice,” has given him an incredible advantage. It’s difficult to take advice from him, recognizing that us mere mortals can not achieve his gains unless we partake in roids.
