Often times when celebrity fitness is discussed on popular news outlets it usually has to do with with how an average sized actor turned themselves into a “beast”. While it may be impressive it’s nothing compared to some of the bodybuilders out there. But one celebrity/actor who actually sizes up to talented bodybuilders in the fitness world is Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
The Rock may not have been cut from granite during his wrestling career, but still had the genetic potential to improve upon his physique. Ever since becoming an actor it seems that The Rock has had adequate time to make some pretty impressive gains.
Like any other bodybuilder, The Rock used compound movements to turn himself into a massive shredded beast. But compound movements alone won’t do the job. The Rock also utilizes old school exercises and machines that have gotten him into jacked condition. Just check out how The Rock trains his chest utilizing the old school pec deck to perfection.
Killer workouts the past few weeks at The Dungeon aka MetroFlex in a little town outside of Atlanta, called Buford. When I’m on the road shooting, I’ll travel hours from wherever I’m staying just to find a hard core gym where the owners turn up the heat for me so it’s a sweat box and members respectfully leave me alone. I’ve gotten after it at hard core gyms all around the world and every once in a while you find a very bad ass old school machine that’s no longer made like this angled “Pec Deck” that’s engineered to give your pecs a burn and pump full of blood like never before. Luv this lil’ darlin’ so much the owners were nice enough to let me buy it from them. She’s already luv’s my sweat so she’ll fit in perfectly in my #IronParadise at home! I know.. “Pec Deck” sounds like a creepy chatroom name, but it’s better than “Pec Meat” which is my nickname every time I train chest. #Dungeon #IronParadise #MyAnchor??
What do you think of The Rock’s chest training method?
