Gettin’ stronger – progress thru pain. 455lbs barbell glute/hip thrusts with 5 second hold at the top with hip circle above knees for greater glute activation. These small gains for me wind up being big gains in the long run considering the multiple injuries over the years I suffered on the football field and in the wrestling ring. Tore both my quadricep & adductor tendons off my pelvis. Five knee surgeries. Torn Achilles’ tendon. Triple hernia (emergency) surgery. Upper body I’ve been a pretty lucky SOB over the years having had just one total reconstruction surgery done on my shoulder when I shredded everything. Waist up, I’m Superman… Waist down, I’m Bionic Man ?*inserts cheesy joke. If you’re going thru injuries or set backs — stay focused, listen to your body and let pain be your guide to come back stronger and better. Remember any and all progress, physical or mental – will always come thru pain. #ProgressThruPain #IronParadise #CauseIFuckingSaidSo ??? Brotha @c.t.ali.fletcher

The Rock takes no off days. Even while he is traveling around the world, he hits the gym first thing after landing to kick jet lag. Dwayne is a fan of bodybuilding and is seen at big shows like Mr. Olympia.

Thank you SHANGHAI for the energy to keep me pushing thru. I always talk about the importance of “anchoring” our day. Even if it means I’ve flown around the world and working non-stop. Wherever I land, regardless of what time it is – I’ll get to the hotel, shower, eat, meditate, shot(s;) of caffeine and hit the gym. Always super tired when I land, but this schedule gives me the jolt I need to anchor my day and ready work my press tour. Your hardest competition out there is always gonna be you vs you. And the funny thing is, after years and years of hard work when you become masterful at your craft – you’ll make it look easy. And the irony about that misconception, is it’s the hardest work you’ll ever put in. You vs you.. that’s when the fun part begins. #ThankYouSHANGHAI #YouVsYou #OurAnchor

Some people might think it’s easier for The Rock because he’s such a big star. It is actually the other way around. The more successful The Rock gets, the harder it is for him as he’s setting higher standards for himself to beat.

It was time for a transformation picture. The Rock has been successful in transforming his physique for his movie roles. The picture in the right is from the sets of the movie Pain & Gain.

The Rock’s quads can put a pro bodybuilder to shame. The legs are the foundation of your body. You can’t have a strong upper body without strong legs. Follow Johnson’s lead and start to love training your legs.

Johnson’s Instagram feed is a paradise for bodybuilding lovers. It’s great to see one of the biggest Hollywood stars is into the fit lifestyle. We believe The Rock will inspire many people to transform their physiques and their lives.

Finish your week strong. It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. And after the man leaves the arena, he will then pour fine tequila ? on his oatmeal and brown sugar because he’s also kinda f*cking crazy and finds that concoction delicious. Excerpt from one of my favorite speeches from one of my favorite Presidents. I may or may not have made up the last sentence.. ??? it’s conjecture at this point. #ManInTheArena #Roosevelt26 #DareGreatly #AndGetToWork
