Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has shown yet another exercise that will add necessary gains.
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has always known a thing or two about weight lifting and he is not shy about showing it off. On Monday, that continued as The Rock shared a video on Instagram of an insane way to end leg-day work.
Johnson has always been a huge advocate of leg day. This is why he has continued to show off exercises to try at the gym and add extra muscle. In his most recent video, The Rock performs reloaded power squats on a hack machine. He completes four total sets with 25 reps to make it an even 100 in all.
“Bad ass song to train legs to
Smashed leg training this morning and finished with this reloaded power squat 4×25.
Give it a shot next leg day.
* raise the foot platform to target certain areas of the quads and glutes.
These final 100 reps at the end of your leg training are brutal, but extremely productive.
Put yourself thru hell when you train, but especially on leg day.
Legs separate the men from the boys.
Don’t skip it 💀😉

The Rock is seen using the hack squat machine backward. This is a different variation to hit different parts of the legs. This is usually seen performed like a reverse leg press machine. On a hack squat machine, the lifter’s feet are planted firmly on the platform with their shoulders under the pads that carry the weight. This brings more balance and stability in order to target certain muscles.
The lifts that Johnson does in the video shows him facing the opposite way under the pads of the machine. He lowers to the ground with form that looks more like a traditional squat. Johnson also raised the platform a bit. This targets the hamstrings and glutes — two muscles that many believe do not get hit as hard while performing on the hack squat machine.
Leave it to The Rock to find a new way to destroy legs at the end of a set. It is the movement being performed and the amount of reps that will leave legs pumped after performing an exercise such as this one. The Rock has displayed many workouts on Instagram over the years and that is not going to change.
If there is one star to focus on when performing in the gym, Johnson certainly has to be at the top of the list.
