However, things have changed from how he used to handle his weights to what he does now. In his prime, Johnson would lift heavy weights to build his muscles. But, after the multiple surgeries and injuries, The Rock has resorted to lifting lighter weights.

Nevertheless, the lighter weights do not keep him from building his boulder shoulders and massive arms and quads. He ensures to make every rep count, every set count, and use various types of sets for optimum utilization of his time at the gym.


Like he always says – be the hardest worker in the room.

Dwayne Johnson has always seen the gym as his escape

Hence, to keep up with the hustle of life, he visits the gym every day. Even if he is away from home, he finds a gym, preferably one which opens at the crack of dawn. There are times when he goes to the gym as early as 4 o’clock in the morning.
