THE ROCK’S FURIOUS 7 UPPER BODY WORKOUT

Generation Iron The Rock Furious 7 Workout

The Rock was pretty swole in Furious 7.

Before he was known as Dwayne Johnson, tried and true thespian, action movie superstar, Mister Johnson was known to the world as the WWE wrestler The Rock. The man was a virtuoso at working the mic and even during his wrestling days had that star power that set him apart from his wrestling contemporaries. Even when he was having legendary matches against John Cena and Brock Lesnar, fans and media alike were just counting the moments until The Rock would branch out into motion pictures.

Johnson has since left his wrestling persona behind, yet he still finds the time to make appearances now and again, most recently at Wrestlemania 31 where he put the beat down on Triple H with the help of UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey, his co-star in Furious 7.

It’s been some time since Furious 7 smashed into theaters and became another mega hit in the franchise – but that doesn’t mean The Rock’s insane muscle is any less impressive looking back. That’s why we put together The Rock’s tried and true method for getting massive and shredded while on set of the Fast & Furious movies. Check out his monster workout below:
