As a former pro football player, blockbuster movie star and one of the most successful wrestlers of all time, there aren’t many workout regimes that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson can’t make light work of. Until now. When preparing for his role in Hercules, Dwayne got into the best shape of his life. What follows are the workouts and regimen that got him there.
Every week, we’ll be releasing one of his special routines for you to tackle. But don’t expect an easy ride – Dwayne told us that Hercules is one of the most physically gruelling roles he’s ever taken on and, looking at these workouts, it’s easy to see why. You can try them, track them and share your progress on Twitter using the hashtag #TeamHercules. The son of Zeus, Dwayne himself, will even be tweeting some lucky Fitocrats with some words of wisdom to help you pull through!
You’ve smelled what The Rock’s cookin’, but can you lift what the demigod’s liftin’? (Note: iPhone/iPad users, you can begin tracking your Hercules workouts by going to the Track section directly in the app, then going to Premade Workouts.)
