Man Enough To Take The Rock’s Diet Challenge

Not everyone can eat like The Rock.

Bodybuilding is a pretty tough sport to be apart of. Eating a copious amount of food while putting in some serious training in the gym seems like an ideal task. In reality it can be a truly torturous that can test the spirit of any person looking to make a major and dramatic change in their physical appearance. When you’re looking to put on massive muscle like the pros you have to eat multiple meals per day, all of them broken down into essential macronutrient percentages that will ensure the best gains.

Though he may not be a professional bodybuilder, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a pretty prominent and inspirational firgure in the bodybuilding scene. He trains hard, eats big, and has a true love for weightlifting, the proof of his hard work plain to see in his massively built form. His time in the WWE coupled with his crossover motion picture success has made him a household name with legions of fans.

With such a major following it’s easy to imagine that many fans would love to know what the wrestling turned actor has to do to keep in such great shape. Recently The Rock released the details of the diet plan that has brought him all his gains in recent years and social media outlets have been shocked and amazed by his intense 7 meal a day plan. As such, people have ventured to see if the actor’s meal plan could work for them in their own endeavors, one of those individuals being Sean Evans of Complex Magazine. Evans has decided to see if he was up to the challenge of completing The Rock’s diet plan for one day. Take a look at the Sean’s journey below.

The truth of the matter is that unless you’re used to eating and training a certain way the results are always going to be pretty one sided. You have to climb the latter before you can fully take on the task of eating and training like a pro athlete. So when you see websites (including us) post up these massive super star meal plans or ultimate workouts from the pros – remember to take it all with a grain of salt. You have to work your way up there – not just skip right to the top.
